Furniture Packing & Moving Tips

If you’d like to pack and move your furniture yourself, or only plan to use us for part of the job, we’d like to help you do it right. Below are some tips that the pros use: 

  1. Don’t move heavy furniture alone
  2. Use the appropriate equipment for moving furniture (dollys, straps, sliders, etc.)
  3. Use high-end and proper moving materials
  4. Clear space so you can easily move furniture out or in without hazards
  5. Disassemble items that allow for it
  6. Pack items that go together in the same container or wrap (table legs, cords, bulbs, etc.)
  1. Place screws, bolts, hardware, etc. in labeled baggies so you know what goes to each piece of furniture
  2. Use plastic wrap around furniture parts and moving blankets around pieces of furniture to avoid damage
  3. Ensure each box is filled completely so items can’t move around during transit
  4. Use clothes and linens to line and fill containers for cushioning
  5. Label all containers
