Tips for moving furniture

Moving can be a quick and quite simple process if you do it right, which is why it is so important to have the right information to hand in order to ensure that your move is carried off in a smooth and successful manner.

One good tip is to make use of your relocation experience to give yourself a whole new start.  Rid yourself of possessions that you no longer want or require by giving them away to friends and family members, selling online, staging a yard sale, or even donating them to your local charity shop.  However you go about decluttering your home, the process will make your impending move a good deal easier.

The first thing you should do is to think about the amount of space there is in the new home that you will shortly be making a move.  Visualize the best method of arranging your items of furniture, making sure that each item will fit in and having some idea of where it will go.  This also applies to electrical appliances such as your dryer, refrigerator and washing machine.

Another good tip is to move during the week, if possible, as it is likely to be a lot less busy than on the weekend.  It will also be easier to get in touch with contacts such as utility companies should there be some kind of problem with services not being connected.
