Moving Furniture & Boxes

The vast majority of furniture movers work for moving and storage companies and thus take care of an entire house's furniture, appliances and boxes. While a furniture mover comes to your home to move individual items, most of their duties revolve around the packing, inventorying, loading, transporting, and unloading of your material possessions. 

Do movers start with boxes or furniture?

Start with the largest and heaviest items first. This includes mattresses, bed frames, tables, chairs, refrigerators, washer/dryers, couches, sectionals and coffee tables. Given the weight and size of these items, they should be on the bottom of your moving truck and not placed on top of other boxes and belongings.

Is it worth paying for packing when moving?

Using professional packing services will save you a lot of time and effort but will cost you extra money. Self-packing, on the other hand, can help you lower your moving expenses but may increase the risk of damage to your possessions during the move (and will take plenty of time and hard work).

Do movers disassemble beds?

Professional moving companies will disassemble beds, bookshelves, dining room tables, buffets/hutches, or other furniture pieces if it is necessary for loading them on the truck safely. This is part of their normal service.
