4 Benefits of Using a Professional Furniture Removal Service


Moving to a new home can be tricky when you have a lot of furniture to transport. You might assume that you can handle the move yourself, perhaps making multiple trips using your own vehicle or one that you have hired. However, a much easier way to handle a move is to work with a furniture removal service. Here are a few of the main benefits of using this kind of service for your home move.

1. Protect Your Furniture

It is easy to damage furniture while you are moving it. Whether you drop a favourite chair, chip the corner off a table while trying to squeeze it through a door frame, or fail to secure a valuable antique for a drive across town, the damage can be irreparable. Furniture removals services use tried-and-tested techniques for moving and securing furniture, which can help to reduce the risk of damage.

2. Get Help Dismantling Furniture

Many pieces of furniture are too large to move in a single piece. Furniture removalists can quickly disassemble many items of furniture to make them easier to move, and then put them back together when you reach your new home. Trying to do this disassembly and reassembly can be deeply frustrating, which is the last thing you need on moving day.

3. Prevent Injuries

Moving day injuries are surprisingly common. Many people try to lift furniture that is too heavy for them and end up hurting their back, which can cause pain that lasts for weeks. Removalists have the necessary strength and lifting technique to allow them to lift heavy items of furniture safely, which means that there is no need for you to take risks with your health.

4. Avoid Getting Stuck in a Corner

If you have ever had the experience of trying to get a piece of furniture up or down a flight of stairs, you know how frustrating it can be. Larger items sometimes seem like they will not fit around a corner, no matter which way you twist or turn them. Thankfully, furniture removalists have been in this situation before and know all the tricks for safely getting a table or armchair or bed frame up or down the stairs without dropping it, causing an injury, or wasting time trying configurations that do not work. Let someone else handle the tricky parts of moving day while you focus on enjoying the arrival at your new home.

Storing my family heirlooms

After my parents passed away I inherited a lot of bulky furniture items that have been in my family for many generations. My current inner city flat is nowhere near big enough for it so I rented out a storage unit. Sometimes I head out to the storage lot just to look through it and remember them. Luckily the furniture has stayed in great condition and one day when I finally get a big family home, I'll be able to have it all on display. I spent a lot of time researching the best way to store vintage furniture long term, and it's all on my site. Enjoy!
