Luckily, you can save your pockets from costly furniture replacements by following these proven tips.
Get Hold of the Right Packing Materials
A common misbelief prevailing on the internet is that cardboard boxes and packing tapes are sufficient to protect high-value furniture from damage but this has got littles relevance. While these packing supplies can surely safeguard your belongings from distortion, they do not guarantee 100% protection against scratches. Thus, it’s wise to invest in the right packing supplies mentioned below to ensure safe and hassle-free furniture removal services in Birmingham.
- Bubble wraps
- Sofa and rug covers
- Sealable plastic bags
- Ridged cardboard sheets
Since furniture parts are heavy, they are often prone to breaking. These packing materials offer an extra layer of protection against mishandling and keep your assets 100% safe.
Prep Your Furniture for Effortless Packing
We always recommends prepping furniture parts before packing to avoid unwanted scratches or damages during transit. Dust, debris and other contaminants can leave behind unsightly marks and hence, it’s important to give furniture a thorough wipe using a clean and dry microfiber cloth to scrape off loose particles before securing them in bubble wraps. If you are shipping drawers, cabinets or shelves, remove the knobs and pack lightweight items that can provide you with extra storage space and make removals a pleasing experience.
Disassemble Your Furniture Parts Methodologically

Screws, nuts and bolts are negligible items and they may easily get misplaced if not secured properly. Packing and storing furniture parts in the right place will make removal easier and mitigate the chances of accidental damaged caused by the shocks and jerks during transportation.
Place Items Strategically to Avoid Damage
Most people make the mistake of stacking boxes on top of another and end up causing significant damages to their pricey belongings. You need to arrange your furniture strategically by hiring the correct movers to ensure they remain intact in place and able to withstand the shocks and jerks during transportation. Here are a few tips of loading your furniture inside moving trucks:
- Always place heavy boxes on the truck floor and stack lighter items on top. Create support at the backend of the truck to provide stability while loading furniture parts.
