Moving home can be stressful – we know this only too well! It’s why we’re happy to help come rain or shine – but there are a few things you are going to need to bear in mind when it comes to making sure that your furniture is ready to be shipped with us. We understand that furniture more or less makes a home – which is why we are keen to share some advice with you on how to make sure your favourite sofas, beds and more besides make their way from home to home without hassle.
Pack Safely and Correctly
Our insurance will cover you for the transportation of your furniture – but we will need you to make sure that you pack each and every piece correctly and safely. This may mean that you need to make use of bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, polystyrene or other heavy duty packing materials. Unfortunately, any furniture items damaged in transit that are not correctly or safely packed will not be covered by our insurance. This means that, to avoid risking any disappointment or further cost, you should always pack safely ahead of dispatch.
Dismantling and Reassembling
We know that this is an important part of any move – and as part of our fees, we are more than happy to help taken apart and reassemble any furniture for you that requires such a service. However, we must advise that this service will add on to the time of service you have requested us for – meaning that you may wish to undertake such work yourself. It is, of course, entirely down to you – but we will always be happy to help should you need assistance in assembly or re-assembly.
While we can reassemble and dismantle pieces for you, we’re sorry to say that certain items of furniture – those which fall below a certain price threshold – may not be covered by our insurance. This, again, could result in extra costs for you – meaning we do advise that you consult us ahead of any dismantling requests or assembly requests should there be any doubt. Once again, this is an optional service which we are happy to provide if you require specific support – but we’re afraid our insurance coverage will only stretch so far. Therefore, you may wish to take action yourself where applicable.
Be Careful Dismantling
It remains to be said that most pieces of furniture – particularly living room fixtures and beds, etc. – aren’t designed with regular dismantling and reassembling in mind. Therefore, it may be worth considering which pieces, if any, require this attention. If you are able to provide furniture in one piece to us, we’ll still be able to transport it for you from door to door with the utmost care and professionalism. However, it remains to be said that there are some heavy items – particularly furniture – which are designed for one assembly alone. It is important that we discuss these matters with you ahead of any work to ensure that you are fully aware of the process!
