The worst things to move – Homeowners edition

Moving to a new home is exciting; moving all of your belongings is not. It’s part of the process that has to get done properly to ensure an effective and efficient arrival at your new humble abode, but there’s no denying that most people loathe the moving tasks involved. Let’s take a look at the worst things to move due to the challenges they present and more importantly, let’s decrease the stress and go over the moving solutions available to you.



Having a piano in the home is an amazing feature. You have beautiful music readily available to you, and grand aesthetics even when it’s not being played. Though, moving pianos is no easy feat. They’re big, bulky, heavy and awkward to maneuver which has likely made you consider not taking it with you to your new home. That would be a shame.

Take your piano with you and enjoy a stress-free experience while doing so. At Bekins Moving Solutions, our professionals have perfected the talent of moving pianos and they even enjoy the challenges they present.

Large Household Appliances

Thankfully, the majority of household appliances, such as toasters and microwaves, are fairly easy to move. Simply put them into their original boxes and off they go. As for the large household appliances – the stove, washer, dryer, and refrigerator, they’ve found themselves on the list of the worst things to move.

What may surprise you though is that with the right steps, moving equipment, and helping hands, moving large household appliances isn’t all that difficult. Unfortunately, most moving companies do charge extra if you use their moving equipment which is an additional fee no homeowners want. At Bekins Moving Solutions, almost all of our moving packages include the use of our moving equipment, free of charge.

Exercise Equipment

As long as you disassemble your exercise equipment, it will be fairly easy to move. However, this task is often easier said than done. Most people do not want to go through the process of disassembling and reassembling their exercise equipment and will just deal with the difficulties that come from moving exercise equipment as is. While this is definitely an option, an even better alternative is to use professional movers. Bekins Moving Solutions includes the disassembly and reassembly of large pieces, including exercise equipment, and you get to sit back and relax.

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds are another large household item that really aren’t all that difficult to move if you’re willing to disassemble them. It’s a hassle that many homeowners do not want to go through which results in plenty of frustration trying to maneuver such a large and awkward piece of furniture throughout the home and into the moving truck.

An excellent alternative is to take advantage of the disassembling and reassembling of large furniture pieces available to you when you book Bekins Moving Solutions.

Pull-Out Sofas

Moving a regular couch does present some challenges but nothing that’s too overwhelming. Add a hidden bed into that sofa, and you have a significant amount of weight and bulk added to the couch, which has resulted in sleeper sofas being on the list of the worst items to move.  Some sleeper sofas can be taken apart to make it easier to move, but disassembling and reassembling it will come with its own difficulties. So, the disassembling and reassembling option available to you when you book Bekins Moving Solutions.
