How to Protect Your Furniture

When it comes to getting your home ready for a move, you likely focus most of your efforts on packing boxes and clearing out clutter. While these are useful tasks, you’ll still need to keep your furniture safe when it’s in transit. Your trusted Denver movers will take care when transporting your belongings, but there are a few things you can do to protect your furniture better before it gets loaded onto the truck.
Take Inventory

Things can easily get lost in a move, especially if you’re packing on short notice. The last thing you want is to get to your new home only to discover that your favorite chair or side table got left behind. While you’re packing, take inventory of all the furniture you plan on bringing with you. Take note of every piece and carefully examine the overall condition of every item. This will help should you need to report damage after the move. Once you arrive at your new home, you can check your delivery against this list to ensure that everything is made it safely.

Measure Your Furnishings

Unfortunately, all doorways are not always the same width. This means that a piece of furniture that fits in your old home may not fit through the door of your new home. Before you go to the trouble of packing your furniture, make sure the pieces will fit the new property. If not, you’ll want to find a new home for the piece. Remember, moving estimates are based on the total number of pieces and the weight of the items transported. Large furniture is expensive to move, and it’s best to leave furniture that won’t fit rather than paying to transport it unnecessarily.

Clean Everything Thoroughly

Moving is stressful. The last thing you want to do is have to clean your furniture in the midst of unpacking and settling into your new house, rather than putting off the task, dust and polish your furniture before you move. Take care to properly clean and condition your wooden items and remove as much buildup as possible. Even small particles can scratch the finish, leaving your furniture looking old and damaged.

Disassemble What You Can

Most furniture can be disassembled, making it easier to move and transport. Before the movers arrive, take apart what you can. Removing the legs from tables and taking the back off of couches and chairs can keep your furniture in better condition during the move, reducing the risk of damage.

Wrap Each Piece

Moving blankets and sheets can do a lot to protect your belongings in transit. Before you move, wrap each piece of furniture with a moving blanket and secure it tightly. If you’re moving glass pieces, use bubble wrap to protect the fragile material. This way, you’ll significantly reduce the risk of unpacking your belongings only to discover that your favorite furniture or accent piece broke in transit.

Your furniture needs protection, whether you’re moving in-town or across the state. At Eden’s Moving, our experienced packing specialists will help you keep your belongings safe no matter how long they’ll be on the truck. Let us take the stress out of your move.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
