Furniture Removal Tips: How to Prepare for a Move

Make your next move easier with this guide


Furniture is large and bulky, making it tough to move — especially when you’re dealing with a whole houseful of items. A little planning helps you get organized when you’re preparing to move multiple large items. We’ve compiled a list of furniture removal tips to help make the process a little easier. Read on to learn more.

Furniture Removal Tips

  • First, take an inventory of all the pieces you want to move. This gives you a starting point for formulating a moving plan.
  • Next, come up with a moving schedule. Your schedule depends on the number of pieces that need to be moved
  • Measure your items to see which items need to be disassembled (to ensure they fit through doorways).
  • Next, prepare your furniture to be moved. Remove the legs, feet, drawers, doors, and other detachable pieces to help lighten your load. Label these items to make reassembly easier. Be sure to clearly mark items that are fragile and move them separately.
  • Your next step is to prep your items in protective packing material. A few must-have items include furniture pads, moving blankets, mattress pads, stretch wrap, packing peanuts, and a dolly. A moving van or truck might also be necessary, depending on the number of items you plan to move.
