In order to preserve the appearance of any transported item, it is necessary to use packaging. And also, negotiate with the moving company https://www.flashmoving.net/household-movers/apartment-movers/one-bedroom-movers/ so that the drivers are not from the street, but those who have been working for a long time and know all the nuances. Another option for preserving furniture is disassembling it. In what cases is it necessary to disassemble:
If the object does not fit through the doorway, stairs or elevator;
Glass – often in huge wardrobes there are elements of mirrors or glass. If you do not want to disassemble the entire structure, at a minimum you need to remove the fragile mirrors/glass and pack it carefully;
Warehouse – when transporting furniture to a warehouse, it would be better to disassemble it so that it takes up less space and you could rent a smaller warehouse;
A sliding wardrobe, a Soviet wall – something that will need to be dismantled in any case. The wall, especially the Soviet one, has many parts and a difficult structure; it is necessary, at a minimum, to separate all the parts and remove the mezzanine. Coupes are most often made to order, which is why they are assembled immediately on site in the room. Most often, such cabinets are made to fit the ceiling, so it will be physically difficult to pull it out. In addition, almost all have mirrors on the doors.
WHAT IS THE BEST PACKAGING TO USE?
Small furniture – chairs, chests of drawers, bedside tables can be packed in several layers of stretch film or not packed at all (depending on what material);
Dimensional – if you disassemble it, then you need to do the packaging after disassembly, fastening all the parts together with tape and wrapping it with stretch. In addition to all this, all small parts (screws, bolts) need to be put in a small bag and tied to the boards. This should be done with any disassembled unit;
Soft – air bubble film is more dense than stretch, so it will work wonderfully;
Glossy/white – be sure to be packed in bubble wrap, because even a small grain of sand will leave a scratch.
