Buying a home can be a pretty complex ordeal, it is not only the searching, the bids, the negotiations and the selling of your old property, but the physical moving itself can be quite a challenge. Whilst there are many new things which we like to buy for our new property, there are many things which we like to take with us, especially expensive items such as furniture.
If you are going to be taking pieces of furniture to your new home then make sure that you enlist the support of friends or a solid removal company such as Shiply. Once you have your support in place, here is to go about moving big and heavy pieces of furniture into your new home.
Decide Where They’ll Go
The first step is to decide whereabouts in your new property you will place each item. This is vitally important as you need to plan which piece will be taken to the new property, and when. For example, if you place your sofa in first and then you need to pass it to get to the kitchen, this can cause problems when you start to take your appliances into the new property. Make sure that you know exactly where each piece will go, and then in which order you will take them in, this will save you time, effort and stress.
Removing Bits and Pieces
It is very likely that you will need to remove parts of your furniture to ensure that it can fit into your new property, especially fitting through the doors. For example this could be as small as removing the wheels off your sofa or as large as having to take a whole door off so that you can fit things in. If you are having new windows put into your property then feeding stuff through the glass-less window frame is a great way to get big items in without the hassle. Stairs can often add a little bit of a problem in terms of getting beds upstairs so make sure that you do so before you decorate as it is likely that you could scratch or damage the walls as you love things up the stairs.
Professionals for Value
If you have items of extremely high value such as a piano, a family heirloom or any other such item which is highly valuable, make sure that you hire professionals to get the job done. The reason for this is that firstly, they will know exactly what they are doing when it comes to moving your stuff and secondly, they will be able to insure your items so that if anything should happen to them, they can foot the bill of repairs or replacements. Make sure that you don’t run the risk, if you have high value items, it is always worth paying for professionals to get the job done right, and done well.
When it comes to moving your big furniture, make sure that you plan well and do it just right.
