Commercial Moving

One of the most thrilling activities you'll ever face is packing and moving your entire household. It's also one of the most difficult. This is especially true if you have a large collection of fragile furniture. If it is not properly protected, you may arrive at your destination only to discover that many of your belongings did not survive the move.

 

What is a Fragile Furniture?

Furniture that is fragile includes a wide range of things in your home. It's possible that the character of these pieces is due to the materials they're composed of. Tables, bed frames, and bookshelves manufactured of laminated particleboard, for example, may resemble real wood, but they lack the weight and expense. Consider furniture that must be assembled after purchase.

Because of its history, other furniture is fragile. Antiques should be given special attention. Fragility is further increased by glass inserts, mirrors, or decorative pieces that protrude from the surface. Grand pianos and fragile things, for example, require extra attention due to their structure, mass, weight, or distinctive size.

 

Packing Fragile FurnitureTips

  • Your valuables may need to be carried up and down halls, up and down stairs, through elevators, and around corners. Trucks that tremble and rumble as they pass through pothole-infested streets and roads can cause damage to your valuables. To avoid breakage, scratches, imprints, and dents, adequately package your fragile furniture.

To avoid breakage, scratches, imprints, and dents, adequately package your fragile furniture.

  • Before wrapping the entire piece in heavy-duty moving blankets, protect the edges and corners with bubble wrap, packing paper, or other padding.

  • To lighten the load on heavy dressers, remove the contents first, then the drawers. Number the drawers to ensure that they are replaced exactly in their original position for the optimum fit.

  • Remove any knobs, feet, or ornaments. Take pictures as you disassemble so you know where to put everything back together.

  • Remove any detached parts and place them in a bag. Secure the bag to the furniture's bottom. Alternatively, collect all unattached things from all furniture and place them in one large bag (do not box these items away).

  • Before wrapping the entire item in a moving blanket, apply extra padding to any protruding elements.

  • Stretchable plastic can be wrapped around items with delicate doors or handles to fasten them to the piece. This will also prevent them from breaking loose from their hinges.

  • When securing goods with bubble wrap or moving blankets, avoid getting masking tape directly on the surface of your fragile furniture. It has the potential to harm the finish.

Protecting Glass Items

  • Remove glass or mirrors from the tables, vanities, or other surfaces to which they are connected.

  • To keep the glass or mirror tight, apply tape in an X-shape across it. (It will also assist to keep the pieces together if they shatter.) Wrap with newspaper or packing paper. After that, wrap it in bubble wrap. Glass or mirrors should be placed in a sturdy cardboard box. This can be done using TV or picture frame boxes. T-shirts, newspaper, or bubble wrap can be used as a cushion. Then tape it shut securely.

  • Place all of the screws you remove from an item in a ziplock bag. Label the bag and fasten it to the item's bottom.

  • All items should be clearly labeled with a FRAGILE sticker on the top and side.

  • Avail the services of a qualified professional moving company with specific training and experience in handling fragile items. Many of the techniques outlined above will be used by these movers to pack your belongings. They'll make sure your belongings arrive at their destination in the same condition as they left.

  • Unpack Fragile Furniture as Carefully as You Packed Up

 

FInal Thoughts

Take your time unpacking, whether you're moving across town or across the country. Carefully unwrap the items. Reassemble them one by one to confirm that all of the components survived the ride and that nothing was lost. Once your items have been carried inside your new digs, use plastic furniture sliders to conveniently move them. This will shield your newly painted walls as well as your furniture.

Consider the future. Prepare a floor plan ahead of time so that the fragile furniture may be placed in its proper spot right away. You'll be safe and secure in your new home, with your prized possessions in place and ready to be enjoyed for years to come, before you know it.
