Furniture - Moving 101

Moving funiture should be dealt as follows.

Wrap with blankets, bubble wrap or foam. Secure padding to furniture. Do not use tape directly on wood or painted surfaces.

Remove legs from furniture if possible. Place wing nuts or screws in envelopes or plastic bags and tape to underside of furniture.

Coat fine wood furnishings with wax to protect against scratches. (Makes the furniture slippery so not too much!)

Send out any furniture that needs repair or refinishing and have it delivered to your new address.

All waterbeds must be completely drained of water. Failure to due so can ruin the mattress.

It is not necessary to remove clothing from dresser drawers. These can normally be moved with the contents intact. Move dressers with contents in drawers to avoid repacking and secure drawers from opening during transit. You can also place sofa cushions and pillows in bags to use as pads or fillers in the trailer. Remember to secure all furniture drawers.
