How to transport the wardrobe properly?

How to transport the wardrobe properly?

Any modern home interior always has a wardrobe. A wardrobe is a huge piece of furniture, which is very difficult to transport on your own. This can cause significant problems. As a rule, the wardrobe does not always fit into an elevator, staircase, or doorway. That is why this piece of furniture must be disassembled and then reassemble. You must admit that it is a rather long and complicated process, and to perform everything correctly and without damage, you must have the appropriate skills.

If you trust this work to the professionals, you can transport the cabinet without damage and maintain its functionality. Specialists of professional moving companies can transport any furniture structure quickly and safely.

There would be no problem if the cabinet was not so bulky. Small furniture can be transported on your own. However, with a wardrobe, not everything is so simple. Especially if this furniture costs a lot of money.

Everything is much easier with the moving company: the specialists arrived, packed the wardrobe correctly, then carefully loaded and transported it. But if you decided to do this on your own nevertheless, first, you need thorough preparation.

Initially, it is worth calculating whether the wardrobe will go into the doorways in both the old and the new dwelling without disassembling. In most cases, it turns out to be too large and does not pass. If you have the same situation, you need to do disassembly of the furniture. To do this, you will need to follow these steps:

· Clear the wardrobe of all contents;

· Remove all panels from the cabinet;

· Dismantle the fittings;

· After that, you can disconnect the base and walls.

It is worth noting that every detail needs to be wrapped in bubble wrap. If you do not have such a film, you can use cardboard, corrugated cardboard, or thin foam. After that, everything must be wrapped with wide tape. All of these steps must be followed if you are transporting the assembled wardrobe. At the same time, pay attention to the fastening of the doors, because they can suddenly open and be damaged during transportation.

Both the cabinet and all of its elements must lie or stand firmly in the moving truck. They shouldn’t rub against other objects and move around the interior of the vehicle. Otherwise, cracks may appear on the chipboard sheets, which can disrupt the aesthetic appearance of the cabinet.

If you are transporting a closet system (this especially applies to those models that have several modules), make sure that all parts are marked. This action will help you in the future.

    Hired these guys two weeks ago and they did a great job with moving some stuff from my dental office to the storage. They were quick and careful with all the equipment, so you can definitely trust them with fragile and expensive stuff. Also, they have reasonable rates which and friendly stuff that knew what they were doing. Thank you guys one more time!

    With the help of professional movers from GGM, we had a smooth transition of moving our belongings fron our home in one side of town to the other. Brian and Adam were professional, on time (arrived 15 min. earlier than promised), and most of all, they worked non stop and we had to prompt them to take breaks. They took the care to wrap furniture and fragile items like T.V. and glass table tops. We can't thank them enough for their help and will definitely refer GGM to others. And of course, call on them again for future moves.

    I had a wonderful move from the Bay Area to SoCal. Kiryl is responsive, professional and thorough. All of my items were moved smoothly and carefully. Not one thing was missing or broken. Compared to the other big box movers, Global Gentle is super affordable, and the quality is excellent. I will certainly use Global Gentle for my next move in SoCal.
