Sometimes a door frame or a hallway simply isn’t wide enough for your furniture to fit through and you need to dismantle the item of furniture before moving home. This can be an intimidating task if you don’t know what you are doing and you could also encounter problems if you struggle to do it yourself. You could damage your furniture beyond repair, injure yourself or even mislay important components.
Here at Enfield Removals we know a thing or two about removals and we’d love to share our knowledge with you. Here’s how you can dismantle and assemble your own furniture.
1. Does it need to be dismantled?
You don’t have to dismantle everything- only the items that are difficult or impossible to move otherwise. Ask yourself if it will fit through the door.
2. Work out how to do it.
Work out what you need to do? Look closely at the item and then work out a plan of action. Consider using the instructions backwards or simply work from top to bottom if you’re feeling stuck
3. Use the correct tools
Don’t struggle- use the correct tool for the job. You might need a screwdriver, allen key, hammer or a wrench.
4. Ask a friend to help
Ask a friend or two to help hold the furniture as you take it apart. Never consider doing it alone. You could get injured or damage the item.
5. Pack carefully
Make sure you don’t lose important screws, nuts and other small items by collecting them together and placing them in a small bag. Tape the bag to the item of furniture itself. It will always be there when you need it. Consider using layers of paper to pack shelves and brackets to prevent them from scuffing against each other.
