How To (Safely) Move Furniture When Moving

If you are wondering how to move furniture when moving, especially in a safe and secure manner, then you have come to the right place. At Express Movers, we specialise in moving all sorts of furniture, ensuring that it gets from your old home to your new home in its original condition.

So, if you are interested in learning more about moving furniture safely, we have made a list of our top tips and tricks.


If it is possible to disassemble your furniture, especially large items like desks and chairs, then it might be worthwhile disassembling these for easier transport. You can then assemble them again once they arrive at your new house. Disassembled furniture has a reduced risk of being damaged during transit, and might even increase the amount of space available for other items to be transported in the same vehicle.

Pack, Cover, Seal

From blankets to plastic, make sure that you cover items to protect them against damage. This is particularly important for table and dresser edges – moving these around through doors can potentially lead to collisions with the doors itself! As a result, covering them up can help ensure their protection.

Planning Ahead

If you have already received access to the new house (or at least access to its floor plans), you can decide beforehand where to place your existing furniture. Creating a layout can be beneficial in knowing exactly where to put your furniture once they arrive at your new home. This makes the entire process easier and more efficient.
