Therefore there are many different FAQ regarding moving them that come to us. These are inquiries requesting to learn just how to safely and economically relocate each of them.
Besides the normal questions about DIY moving household goods and various standard pieces of furniture like dressers and sofas there are also inquiries about relocating valuable delicates like antiques, pianos, fine furnishings, dining room suites, bedroom suites, artwork, dishes, china, glasses, crystal, statuary, vases, pictures, etc. Each of these things requires their own special packing, wrapping, moving and trucking techniques in order to avoid damages during the relocation process.
So, before do-it-yourself moving any of your possessions, bear in mind that each item needs to be uniquely protected. This is done by properly packing boxables and by fully and snugly wrapping furniture pieces in moving blankets. Some things may need to be disassembled and reassembled and others may need to be crated in order to be moved successfully. When each item is properly prepared for moving it can then be carefully carried, lifted, dollied and trucked to the new residence with little chance of damages. There of course, each item would need to be carefully unloaded and unpacked or unwrapped and safely put away.
Added to all of these considerations there are also a great variety of floor surfaces, wall surfaces, ceilings, chandeliers, windows, doorways, stairways, and / or elevator surfaces to be properly protected during the home relocation process. Damages to surfaces can be quite costly to repair.
