Moving can be one of the most chaotic events that you have to go through and life. And to add to the chaos, the lingering threat of damaging or breaking your household items can make this process even more stressful.

Measure Large Furniture and Entryways

One of the most common ways that damage occurs during a move comes from trying to fit furniture through a doorway that's not quite big enough. Instead of damaging your sofa or the framing in your home, measure first, then decide if you'll need to disassemble any furniture before moving. 

Use Corner Protectors

For items with sharp edges, you'll want to make sure you're using corner protectors. Consider a fragile item like a mirror—having corner protectors will help with bumping into things and likely protect your mirror from cracking or shattering.

Cover Furniture with Pads or Blankets

No matter how careful you are, it's still very likely that something sharp cuts through your furniture. With this in mind, you should always keep these items covered with blankets or pads for extra protection.

Use Durable Boxes

It's important to make sure that you're using the correct box for the job. If you're packing heavy items into a box, you'll need an extra durable option with an added tap on the bottom. This will prevent your items from busting through the bottom of the box.

Let Professionals Handle Specialty Items

You'll want to let your residential moving company handle specialty items, a piano, or any appliances that you're moving with you. As experienced experts, they'll know how to properly transport these items.
