FURNITURE REMOVAL: DISASSEMBLY AND REASSEMBLY

All furniture is not assembled in the same way, they can be glued, pegged or clipped. For peg furniture, first remove the drawers, doors, shelves and cornice if needed.

Ideally you want to disassemble your furniture in a methodical and organized way, to save time on arrival. To do this, remember to place all fixtures of each piece of furniture in a bag, which you then attach on a piece of the furniture in question, which avoids losses and forgetfulness during your furniture move. In order to find the different pieces of a piece of furniture, you can set up a colour code.

Poorly packaged items can be quickly damaged in a move. It is therefore important to pack your items one by one. Once the furniture is packaged, you still have the assembly and filling of the boxes. Namely that some movers include in their price the delivery of cartons. For filling, always fill the boxes well. This technique will prevent them from crashing during the move, because a well-filled cardboard box is more resistant and retains its shape better.

It is also necessary to write on each box its content and which way up it should be stored with an arrow, especially for fragile items. Moreover, for fragile objects such as glasses, use cardboard boxes and bubble wrap. These cartons have the advantage of being compartmentalized and prevent objects from colliding during transport.

For your clothes, it is better to choose the wardrobe setting of your clothes on hangers. You can directly ask the mover for this that avoids damaging your clothes during the movable move.
