Furniture Removals


When it comes to Furniture Removals you need to plan ahead and research for the removal company that offers the best option, for your specific furniture moving needs, there are many things to be aware of…

When it comes to furniture removals, either from your home or from your business (desks, chairs and other office furniture), you need to plan ahead and take all precautions when moving those items. The last thing you want is that an antique item that has been in your family for generations gets broken because of careless removal procedures. Depending on the place you are living, the way of access in and out, the number of furniture items you need to be removed, the size and weight, you will need adequate removal procedures.

If your company put you in charge of some office furniture moving, definitely you need to be the most careful you could be, and research removal companies, moving & storage, removers in your area that guarantee you a reliable and professional removal service … firms that meet with you several days before the moving day, to establish all the points in the moving procedure, and the insurance they offer. For sure you don’t want to pay for
anything that could go wrong when moving your company’s furniture, especially by hiring the services of a company who offer you cheap removal services, but a removal procedure that doesn’t fit your specific removal requirements.

Moving furniture in and out of houses, apartments or buildings, especially older properties, presents challenges; in areas where there are many older properties, furniture movers may be adept at removing and reinstalling sash window panes. Most double bed bases can be split, folded or dismantled. Pianos are a particular problem; removals contractors will usually have specialist piano trolleys and there is a device colloquially known as a shoe which is strapped to the side of a grand piano to allow it to be rested on its edge on the trolley without damaging the polish or applying excessive force to the sides of the instrument.

House removals require careful wrapping and packing to avoid damage to furniture and other goods, so many household policies do not cover goods in transit unless they are being packed, carried and unpacked by a professional home remover. In the moving industry, when a customer packs and unpacks his own boxes it is referred to as PBO (Packed By Owner) and policies do not insure these goods. On PBO moves it can become a point of
huge contention between the mover and the customer as to who is at fault regarding damaged items within a box. [Keep reading about proper wrapping, packaging and use of removal boxes…]

In some cases, it’s probably that the furniture removal procedure will need to involve the use of a crane. Professional home removers have the use of cranes as a service on their removal procedure, if there’s the case that a specific item (like Pianos) won’t be able to me removed through the entrance or exit door, and through the stairways. It’s very common when you are moving, that it is difficult trying to move a big sofa or a table, or large, heavy appliances through your building stairways…in this case, removal companies will assist you with the use of a crane to facilitate the removal procedure of the furniture, and in the most safe manner, not only for the furniture, but most importantly for the safety of the removal company personnel, and for you, your family, co-workers and/or any other person around the area during the moving.
