Ready-to-Assemble furniture makes a great addition to a home, as it is usually more affordable and flexible than standard pre-assembled furniture. These features usually makes RTA furniture much easier to move and transport due to its lighter weight and smaller size, but there are still steps you should take to make sure it’s properly prepared and protected from damage during a move.
If possible, take the furniture apart and pack it into boxes
Many people don’t realize how helpful it is to disassemble furniture when moving. Not only does it make the furniture easier to transport, but it also helps to protect it from damage. When furniture is disassembled, each piece can be wrapped individually and packed into a box. This helps to prevent scratches and dents, and it also makes it easier to fit the furniture into the new home. In addition, disassembling furniture allows you to customize the layout of your new home. You can rearrange the pieces to create a more efficient or aesthetically pleasing design. So, if you have the time and patience, disassembling your furniture before a move can be a great way to protect your belongings and create a better living space.
Label each piece of furniture with its corresponding room
Once the furniture is disassembled, label each piece with its corresponding room. This will help you to keep track of the connecting pieces and make it easier to reassemble the furniture once you reach your destination. Make sure to clearly label each piece of furniture, so there is no confusion when it comes time to move it into its new home. By taking a few minutes to label the furniture, you can save yourself a lot of time and effort in the long run.
Photograph the furniture prior to disassembly
Before you take apart your furniture, it’s important to take some photographs. This will help you to remember how the furniture is put together, and will make it easier to reassemble later on. Be sure to take close-up shots of any complicated joints or connections. Once you have taken pictures of the furniture, you can safely begin the disassembly process. With a little careful planning, you can avoid any headaches down the road.
Stack heavier pieces on the bottom and lighter pieces on top
When stacking items, it is important to consider the weight of the pieces. Heavier pieces should be placed on the bottom, while lighter pieces can be safely stacked on top. This helps to prevent the stack from toppling over and ensures that all pieces are properly supported. It is also important to check the stability of the stack before adding any more pieces. Any piece that seems unsteady should be removed and repositioned. By taking these precautions, you can help to ensure that your stack remains safe and secure.
