Whether you’re moving in, moving out, or just decluttering, removing large appliances and furniture is quite a daunting task! The heavy lifting, sweating, and the failed attempts of trying to fit them through a doorway or into the vehicle… phew, too much to handle!
A lot can go wrong if you don’t take the right precautions, and it could end up costing you more as well. Let’s look at the compilation of common mistakes people make while trying to dispose of furniture and the lessons we’ve learned from them.
But before we get to that, here are a few tips you can use to get started.
Reduce and Reuse: If you plan to get rid of the furniture, consider the option of selling it to make some cash out of it, or donating it to a charity or a needy, homeless person.
Recycle: Even if the furniture isn’t in good condition, and you’re planning to discard it, having every component sorted will make recycling easier so that the junk doesn’t end up in a landfill.
Repurpose: When wood, nails, foam, and other materials are recycled or simply taken apart, they can be repurposed into producing other valuable items without the need of excessively mining scarce resources.
We get it, you are a pro at assembling flat-pack furniture, but the bad news is you might need to disassemble it to get it out of the door. Be very alert while pulling the furniture apart, and carefully keep all the pieces. If everything is in good condition and packed well, the next owner can easily assemble it back.
Failing to Protect
Taking measurements is extremely important when planning a move, otherwise getting furniture out the doors into a vehicle gets impossible without damaging the furniture. It also slows down the process, and repairs will cost more than taking proactive steps such as wrapping the furniture properly to protect it.
