Moving Furniture The Safe Way

14Jan 2015

Whether you’ve got an armoire to get down your stairs, or if you have a heavy dining table to fit through your front door, you’re going to need to ensure that you have a plan for your furniture removals when preparing for your house relocation.  Improper lifting and carrying isn’t just dangerous, but it can cause you to damage your furniture or even injure yourself. Avoid this happening to you when you’re moving house by following these easy and simple tips!1)    Be aware of weight.Before moving your furniture it’s a good idea to test the weight of your pieces to see if you can handle them by yourself. You shouldn’t try to lift or move any furniture that you think might be too heavy for you, as you don’t want to end up hurting yourself! If you suspect your furniture might be best off being lifted and carried by more than just yourself, try asking friends and family for a helping hand.2)    Prepare your path.When taking furniture out of your home make sure you have as clear a path as possible. Carrying larger items can obstruct your vision, making it difficult to see where you’re going. Errant boxes, stray items and even pets can get in your way when carrying and lifting heavy items, so keep a path free from clutter so that you won’t have to worry about tripping or falling on your way to your removals van.3)    Handling stairs.If you’re carrying items up or down flights of stairs then it’s essential that you take extra care. Don’t rush when doing this, as it will be much easier to make a mistake, and always make sure you have another person helping you when it comes to stairs!4)    Hiring equipment.Make moving your furniture and appliances easier by hiring a moving dolly. These dollies can make quick work of moving your fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, so that you won’t have to worry about picking them up. Speak to your local moving company London to see if they can rent you one to save you time, effort and worry!5)    Preparing for moving day.Before you move, take the time to measure your largest pieces of furniture and the size of your doorways or exits. This will help you to create a plan to get your biggest items out of your home in a speedy and efficient way. Once you have the measurements you can easily figure out the best ways to manoeuvre your furniture from your doorways to your moving van!6)    Hiring professional movers.If you have major concerns about your furniture then you can always hire the experts. Hiring a removal company London can save you lots of time and stress, especially if you’re hiring a package service that includes furniture moving! Having professional teams to move your furniture can keep them save, stop you from having to deal with heavy lifting and some companies even offer insurance for that extra peace of mind. Find out more about services like this in your area by speaking to your friends, colleagues and family to see if they can recommend a company, or try looking online for good deals from reputable companies. If you are hiring online, make sure to read reviews from customers so that you can be sure you’re hiring the best!
