Many people often find it is hard to get their big and bulky furniture out of their home and into the moving truck. You may think back and wonder how you got it in the home in the first place. Most furniture came to your home in pieces, which is how it will need to leave. Whenever possible, you will want to disassemble your bigger furniture. Not only can you get it out of the door, but it will be much lighter and easier to find space for in the moving truck.

Smaller pieces should be put into a bag and labeled so you know what piece goes to which furniture and so they will not get lost. Most people hope not to disassemble the furniture as they do not wish to reassemble it later. This is understandable. However you may find it is much easier to disassemble and reassemble the furniture then it is to get it out of the home and loaded into a moving truck. When it comes to your couches, sofa, love seat, or armchairs, disassembly is limited.

Make sure to keep the feet in a safe place to screw them back on when you arrive at your new home.
