Tips on how to pack and move heavy furniture

As we all know that Covid-19 restrictions are still going on and NZ is battling with every day high numbers of the omicron variant. Hopefully the surge is over, and we can get back to our normal daily life.

We know that packing and moving heavy furniture is not an easy task. You will have to take proper precautions while moving heavy furniture because it can cause damage to your home as well as furniture itself and can give you potentially cause an injury. Here are some points listed below which can help you to make a smooth move.

1.    Have the right accessories

When you are planning to move into a new house, first make your list and write down the important items required to pack the heavy items. There are many packing accessories that you need to consider and these things you can get from your local warehouse at very reasonable prices.

These packing accessories may include bubble wraps, glad wrap, cello tape, moving blankets etc. You can also use your clothes to pack your stuff and make it affordable within your budget. We also provide the packing service in Auckland if requiring professional help.

2.    Dismantle the heavy furniture

When you are packing your large and heavy items such as beds, dressers, cabinets, desks, bookshelves etc., always dismantle them if it is possible. It is very easy to pack and move the dismantled furniture rather than moving the whole furniture especially if they are awkward in shape.

This will help you to make a smooth move and protect your furniture from any kind of damage. It will also help to protect you from any serious injury.

Some of the heavy furniture such as sofas, couches, tables may have detachable legs which will make your move easier.

3.    Take pictures while dismantling the furniture

Before, during and after dismantling the furniture it’s a good idea to take pictures and videos. It will help you to settle down into your new home and you can see those pictures later while you are putting back your furniture in your new home.

4.    Wrap and pack the furniture

After dismantling the furniture, now it’s a time to wrap the furniture properly. Make sure you are having the right and appropriate size boxes for your furniture.

While packing your tables, always wrap them carefully with bubble wrap. After wrapping them properly, you may also use your clothes to fill up the gaps between the legs of table. It will help you to protect your table from any damage.

When you are packing your fragile items such as TV, glass table etc., wrap them with the moving blankets properly. You can also use your clothes for wrapping fragile things. But bubble wrap mostly works for any heavy items that are fragile.

5.    Label your boxes

Once it’s all done, pack your furniture in an appropriate size box and use the glad wrap to seal the box. Don’t forget to label the box. By labelling the boxes, you can remember that which box has which items, and you don’t get confused while settling down into your new home.

6.    Lift your furniture

Be careful when you’re lifting your heavy furniture. If you are not using proper lifting techniques, it can give you serious or bad injury such as you’re back pulling out.

Always try to hire professional movers in Auckland companies because they are trained very well, and they know all the techniques to lift the heavy furniture. This is the best way to keep safe from any kind of injury.

Safe moving everyone.
