How to pack furniture correctly for moving

Moving home can be one of the most stressful life experiences. Organising and packing for your belongings can make even the most focused mind lose control.

Therefore, Britwrap would like to make this easier and offer you some advice this time. We focus on those related to packing furniture for removal.

PLAN TO SUCCEED

Inventory all your furniture, appliances and personal belongings and buy enough packaging material to cover all of your items. Pay special attention to the most delicate objects, such as pottery, mirrors, paintings and decorative objects, as these will need extra protection to prevent damage during movement.

Pack FURNITURE AND DISASSEMBLE IT

Empty all the furniture, clean it, and, if possible, disassemble it. As long as they are removable and functional, disassembling your furniture will make it easier to get it through tricky door frames while also maximizing space in the moving van. Once stored in a box or bag, write down each piece of furniture and the total number of pieces.

WHAT DO WE NEED FOR THE MOVE?

The essential materials when packing furniture for removal are the following: 

  • Bubble wrap and plastic film (as protection elements), 
  • Boxes of different sizes
  • Packing tape 
  • Sofa covers 
  • Mattress bags 
  • Carpet and rug Bags 
  • TV bags 
  • Protective blankets 
  • Corner protectors 
  • Padding foam for the most fragile objects 

AND THE TOOLS?

In addition to materials, the basic tools to organize the packing move are a hammer, screwdrivers, wrench, scissors, tape measure and cutter. These tools are useful for disassembling the furniture, storing and labeling it, and installing it in the new address.

HOW IS THE FURNITURE PACKED?

Tables, bookcases and cabinets can be wrapped in fabrics and blankets to protect them from knocks. Chairs, sofas and armchairs can be wrapped in plastic wrap, removing the cushions and pillows and adding some protector for the corners. Mattress can be easily protected and maneuvered through the home using a mattress bag. All textiles can go in bags; it is advisable to place protectors on the corners of electrical appliances. Protecting your television with our TV bag will provide impact and scratch resistance and prevent costly damage. if you want to see another packaging company you can click here
