How to Get Help Moving the Furniture When Renovating

moving-the-furniture-when-renovating

There are many renovating jobs that are relatively simple and easy for a home handyman or woman to do. Often, the hardest part is in moving the furniture so you can get the job done without it being in the way. But not everyone is strong enough to lift furniture carefully. Even if you are not moving house, it is possible to hire professional Perth removalists to come and shift the furniture for you.

Why is a professional the best person for the job?

  • They are trained how to lift so they are unlikely to do their back in.
  • They have belts and other aids for moving heavy furniture.
  • They are fit enough because they’ve been doing it for years – unlike you.
  • They know how to care for furniture, so are unlikely to damage anything.

There are many jobs that can be done without moving the furniture. Covering heavy furniture with drop sheets is often enough. Or you may be able to slide it out of the way far enough to squeeze around or behind it.  This can be done by yourself or with a hand from your spouse or a friend. But what about if you decide to lay carpet, or renovate the whole floor of a room? The furniture needs to be taken right out of the room for that.

You may be able to fit it into another room, or store it on the deck with plenty of coverings to ensure it doesn’t get wet with dew or rain drift. If there is simply no other place it can go, you’ll have to hire storage for it. This definitely means getting the removalists in to do the job. They have the truck and are sure to be able to advise you on the best storage options in your area.

The best part of doing this is that you can pack small goods carefully yourself and send them to storage as well, so the rest of the house is free of goods that are not meant to be in it. Having boxes stored up in the bedroom or lounge room can be really annoying when you just want to relax in your tidy house at the end of the day.

Preparing your home for renovations is an important part of the whole. If you have to dodge furniture all the time it will impact on the end result. You might even get paint on the furniture that you don’t notice until it has gone dry and hard.  Or you might end up injuring yourself as you try and dodge that furniture while you are working. Then your renovations would come to an abrupt halt until you have recovered.
