Moving home – household furniture and appliances

by | May 28, 2013 | Business Services

There are many things to take into consideration with regards to moving home but perhaps one of the most important aspects that is regularly overlooked relates to household furniture and appliances. It is a common mistake to overlook the need for special preparation and consideration regarding such items. This can mean a delay during the moving process and damage to the furniture and appliances. It is advisable to seek the advice of a company specialising with removals in Wandsworth prior to the moving date to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible on the day. They will be able to offer you specialist advice regarding the possible difficulties that you may encounter and how to overcome these difficulties.

Household furniture

Household furniture can be some of the most expensive items in our homes so we need to make sure that we prepare well in advance for the removal and transportation of such items. Soft furnishings in particular need extra care and protection to reduce the risk of damage. It is advisable to make sure that items such as three piece suites and chairs have the necessary packing and protection prior to removal. It is very easy for items like these to be damaged as they are being moved and the cost of remedial work to such items can run into hundreds of pounds, an unnecessary extra cost that we want to avoid. Consult with one of the many companies specialising in removals in Wandsworth and they will be able to advise you of the best way to prevent damage to expensive pieces of furniture. We should also consider the size of the furniture and how easy it will be to remove the furniture from the room. For large items such as tables and three piece suites it may not be possible to remove them from the home by the usual exits such as doorways. If this is the case we need to make plans for additional exit spaces such as windows to be utilised. Always disassemble any pieces of furniture that allows it so that it is easier to remove them from the home in an efficient manner.

Household appliances

Household appliances also require special consideration prior to moving day. It is advisable to ensure that all appliances are packed correctly in boxes if able to do so to prevent damage. Many household appliances are fragile and moving such items obviously carries a risk of damage to these items. For larger kitchen items such as fridges and the freezer we should ensure that all food items are removed and that the appliances have been defrosted and emptied of any remaining water.
