Furniture Assembly And Disassembly During A Move
Published on Wednesday, 23 April 2014
Furniture is a difficult part of a removal. If you are not completely sure as to how you are going to get it all out of your home or office, then it may well be worth having a think over the various obstacles that you may find you come up against. The main issue that you will need to contend with is space; fitting objects through doors, down corridors and through various strangely shaped areas in the building. The next issue that you may have is the part, or complete disassembly of certain items, to ensure that they are ready to be lifted and packed in to the van. A simple check over the items should put you in good stead to get everything ready when the time comes, but it is well worth doing so well in advance, to ensure that you are not at risk of any time consuming upsets regarding the furniture at a later moment in the process. For a start, you should assess what is going to be a problem and what should be fine. Start on the upper levels on the house, as this is where the main issues will be. Stairs cause problems when you are moving large items, as you can surely imagine. Knowing exactly how you are going to get something down the stairs and out of the front door takes a little imagination, as well as a tape measure! If you get the widths and heights for the doors, and make a mental note of the spaces around the openings, then you can amuser up the larger bits of furniture in the house to see if they are going to fit easily. Remember that everything got there originally, so you are not likely to have any situations where things are stuck there forever, to key is to find out how to do the job easily, and without damaging any paintwork or furniture! Sofas and arm chairs are never built up inside the house, so you know that they can be removed in some way or other. The difficulty can come however when the angle or space around a door is uneven, making it easy to get through one way, but difficult the other way round! Rotating the object and trying different angles will hopefully give you the answer. The main thing is to not get too stressed, as this will only lead to mistakes and damages! Have a think about the items of furniture that could have been assembled within the room - cheaper or more modern furniture is often flat packed, but some of it is built in a way that means it won’t last that long when taken apart, so you need to assess how stable the joins are overall. Looking at where the sides connect, and the nature in which they are fastened should give you a good idea as to how to take them apart, and the types of tools that you will need. Older furniture tends to be made with different methods, and will unfortunately be a lot heavier because of it. These joins are not going to be easily dismantled, and you will likely need to remove drawers, doors and other easily removed features to remove the weight and potential accidents that such moving components can cause. Getting furniture out of a house is easy if you simply have a look at the trouble makers beforehand. Ensure that you are in a position where you can get things done safely, and you should have few issues.
