Whether you’re a homeowner or apartment dweller, chances are you’ll be moving sometime in the coming years. When that time comes, you’ll want to make sure all of your furniture arrives safely at your new home and without any scratches or breaks. To help make your move a bit easier – and to help protect your furniture – our St. Louis furniture store offers these tips:
Remove any parts. While we can’t speak for every piece of furniture, some may come with removable parts – like handles or legs. If you plan on doing the heavy lifting yourself, protect your furniture by removing these pieces. Not only will this make moving easier because of decreased weight and bulk, but it can also help save these pieces from scratches.
Don’t push your furniture. Think the best way to get your furniture from one spot in your room to another is pushing it? Pushing furniture can cause unnecessary pressure on the base and legs, causing them to break. If a piece is too heavy to lift completely, try using sliders.
Invest in a moving company. Moving an entire house of furniture can be difficult for you and your husband or wife. To make sure your furniture makes it from your old home to the new one in the best condition possible, leave the work to the professionals. You’ll want to do your research to ensure they put the same care and consideration into your furniture as the delivery team at our St. Louis furniture store, but it will be worth the effort.
At Dau Home Furnishings, we know that many of your pieces of furniture are meant to be passed on from one generation to another. With quality craftsmanship – and these moving tips – you can ensure that your furniture will be around to enjoy for years to come. Are you moving to a new home and starting from scratch?
