Learn how you can save time, money and damage by simply disassembling some of your furniture before moving it.
A couple of weeks ago, I tried to get a large, borrowed bed into our house basement. My first attempt left a gouge in the stairwell ceiling. My second attempt, had me removing the door to the basement. Finally, I realized that the best way to accomplish this task in such limited space was to plain disassemble the bed. By simply doing this, I would have saved my ceiling, my time, as well as my limited nerves.
When it comes to moving, I recommend alloting time to disassemble several home furniture items. Your strategic effort will save you moving costs, damage and time.
- Take legs off large tables.
- Disassemble bed frames.
- Take mirrors off of the dressers.
- Disassemble swing sets and any other outdoor equipment.
* Put hardware in a Ziplock Bag and tape it to the furniture item.
