Getting Oversized Furniture Out Of The House On Moving Day

Abigail Holland

If you want to move with oversized furniture that was assembled inside your house, you may have a problem getting it out of the house and onto the moving company truck. The following tips should help make the process easier:

Measure Everything before Moving Day

Don't assume that your furniture will fit through the doorway because the doorway "looks" big; looks can be awfully deceiving. You don't want to make an assumption only to end up with a furniture piece that can't pass through the doorway on moving day. Therefore, measure the height, length, and width of every gigantic furniture piece you have to ensure they will fit. That way you identify what won't fit and take appropriate measures.

Dissemble As Much As Possible

Most furniture pieces can be disassembled so that they can pass through spaces they wouldn't otherwise fit. Even if you have a piece that looks as if it can't be disassembled, you may be able to reduce its height, width or length by removing its detachable parts. Removing a cushion there, a leg here or a drawer there may be the difference between an easy move and a difficult one.

Get Adequate Help

There are three main reasons you shouldn't try to get a big piece of furniture out of the home on your own:

  • You may hurt yourself by straining to lift a heavy item
  • You may damage the furniture you were trying to move in the first place
  • You may damage the house and incur heavy repair expenses

Therefore, get your friends or family members to help you or hire professional help; whatever you do, don't struggle with one or two people.

Consider All Exists

Don't just focus on the doorway if you want to get your big piece of furniture outside; consider all the openings in your house. Maybe that emergency door that has never been opened may work wonders for your big couch or that side window may be better suited to it. in short, think beyond the front door.

Protect the Floor and the Furniture

Lastly, in as much as you will be focused on getting your oversized furniture out of the home safely, you should also mind your floor and the furniture itself. For example, you should cover the floor with cardboard pieces while pulling the furniture on it so that it doesn't damage the floor. You should also wrap up the furniture, something like blanket or bubble wrap on the corners will do, so that it doesn't get damaged.

Remember, you don't have to do it all yourself. Use movers, like Yare Moving & Delivery, to help you out.
