Top 4 Furniture Removals Challenges and How to Overcome Them

About Me
Moving with horses

Our horses are such an important part of our lifestyle and our family. We are moving next year for my husband's work and one of the most stressful aspects is organising the horse transport. We've done this before and it always turns out okay, but it doesn't make the next time any easier. We can replace our furniture if it gets lost or broken, but our horses are part of our family. This blog is all about organising large animal transport across state lines and has a range of tips to make the process as not stressful as possible for both the animals and the owners.


Top 4 Furniture Removals Challenges and How to Overcome Them

Furniture removals can be quite stressful, and especially if you are dealing with bulky furniture. The process is not without challenges, and failure to have a solid plan to overcome these challenges can be costly.

Here are some of these challenges and how furniture removals experts work around them.

Can't Fit, Won't Fit

Trying to force your furniture to fit through narrow doorways and stairways may only lead to damage. It may be slight scratching or worse, but damage all the same. Repairs can cost you quite a bit, depending on the type and extent of the damage on the furniture.

Furniture removals experts ensure that they take measurements during the pre-removal survey of your home or business. These measurements will inform the removalists' decision on whether or not to disassemble the furniture.

Disassembling and Assembling Mistakes

On disassembling and assembling furniture, it has to be done right. Anything may lead to damage to the items being dismantled.

Professional furniture removals companies ensure that their employees have the know-how to properly and safely disassemble and assemble different furniture items. Pros also refer back to the owner's manual and reference photos of when the furniture was still in one piece.

Using the right equipment also avoids damage. Using the wrong drill bit size, for example, may cause stripping of screw heads. Professional removalists will always have a diverse collection of tools for dismantling and assembling furniture.

Finding the Right Packing Supplies

Try carrying out furniture removals without the proper supplies, and you may end up with scratches and even worse damage. This is why removalists will assess what furniture items you have and the appropriate supplies for the move.

Some of the must-have supplies include moving pads, plastic sheets, furniture straps, bubble wraps, mattress covers, and furniture blankets. Most removalists have all these supplies, and if not, they can always advise you on where you can get the premium-quality kind.

Kids and Pets in the Way

Seasoned furniture removals experts are no doubt very diligent and careful while at their job, but accidents do happen. If a piece of furniture fell on your child or pet, you may be forced to spend on medical expenses, as may be necessary. It is best to ensure the kids and pets are out of the house, or at least in another room while the removalists work.

As highlighted, successful furniture removals will involve taking care of some challenges. This is the reason to work with seasoned experts.
