Useful tips for transporting furniture
Transportation of furniture includes not only transportation, but also its preliminary preparation (dismantling of furniture, packaging, labeling of packages) and subsequent assembly. Each stage should be carried out as carefully as possible so that all parts are in stock.
With an apartment or office move furniture transportation always includes a lot of subtleties. Firstly, not all furniture can fit in a van, so some of its items have to be taken apart to begin with. But here there is one more nuance – not all furniture is disassembled, and even if it is disassembled, then difficulties arise with the assembly of part of the parts, since the grooves of some of them are loose.
All this requires special skill, which movers from the transport company may not possess. Actually, they are not obliged to think about the aesthetic consequences of your furniture after transportation: all that is required of them is to deliver the furniture completely and completely without taking into account the individual characteristics of specific furniture.
Therefore, it is recommended in such cases to either control the process of disassembling the furniture yourself, or contact furniture companies, both before the furniture is transported and after it, so that they can assemble it later, then the responsibility for disassembling will fall on their shoulders, because they will have to assemble it . But remember that no matter who disassembles the furniture, it is important to label its large parts, and put the small ones in a separate bag so that all this is not lost later.
Secondly, the furniture may be scratched during transportation, so it should be carefully packed. Large and small parts are packaged in different ways. For this, all kinds of boxes, bags, containers, folders, boxes, etc. are used. For glass and mirror surfaces, special boxes and cranes are used, when it comes to large heavy objects.
Smaller parts are packed in polystyrene foam, bubble wrap, thick cardboard and other saving containers. Some of them are packaged in 2 layers of film and 1 layer of cardboard, after which they are still fixed with tape for reliability. However, for example, the Podorozhnik transport agency owns other methods that can also be used to transport household appliances, animals, documents, and, of course, elements of furniture itself.
Thirdly, the transportation of furniture includes not only preparation, disassembly, packaging and transportation, but also its subsequent assembly. As we already said, it is better to entrust the furniture assembly to furniture makers, but unloading and unpacking of containers should be done so that the furniture details are all in place. Labeling furniture, which is affixed to the packaging with stickers or markers, will help you figure out where it is.
