Furniture and fragile items are the most difficult items to relocate. Not packed and moved properly, property owners risk scratching, damage and breakage. There are two ways that you can pack and move your furniture and fragile items. You can have a removalist company Sydney complete the task, or you can do it yourself. For property owners that will be completing the task themselves, AAA City Removalist offers the following advice.
Furniture Packing Tips
When moving furniture, you will need specific moving materials to ensure the safety of your furniture:
Plastic wraps are used to wrap your furniture to help create a protection barrier around the piece when moving. This helps to eliminate the risk of scratching and damage when moving. Once you have cleaned your furniture, wrap the piece with a few layers of plastic wrap. Items to wrap in plastic wrap include wooden furniture, couches, and glass furniture like chandeliers & mirrors.
Furniture pads are used to rest your heavy items feet. On the bottom of the legs of couches, chairs, tables, etc. they are glued to the bottom to avoid wear and tear during the move. With heavy furniture, often the furniture is dragged, causing damage to both the floor and the furniture. Furniture pads will help to avoid this.
Labelling your boxes with furniture items like chandeliers, tabletops, mirrors, etc. is also important. This will help you to keep better control of the items in your move, and help to organise you when you arrive at your new home.
Fragile items like porcelain and china need to be packed properly or the chances of breakage is high. Eliminate the risk of chipping and breakage with the following tips from AAA City Removalists.
Electronics are another item that are considered fragile items and need to be packed and transported properly.
