Should I disassemble my furniture before moving?

Many items from your home have breakable parts which can be a hazard during the moving process. Although larger solid pieces tend to move fine on their own, you may find that many items travel better when taken apart. 

Before deciding what furniture needs to be taken apart, you must keep in mind that there are certain items moving companies can not move by law since it poses a safety risk to both you and our team.

It is part of our standard services to disassemble and reassemble furniture in your home at no additional charge. Our trustworthy and dependable staff will ensure your valuables are transported safely.

What furniture can be disassembled?

Do Movers Disassemble and Assemble Furniture

There are certain furniture pieces that must be disassembled before you move. Here at Zip Moving & Storage, we are all about making your move easy!

Here’s a list of items that CAN be disassembled:

  • Bed frames – Most bed frames will need to be disassembled before moving. Our movers will efficiently do this during the moving process. If you would like to do it yourself, consider getting up early in the morning before the moving crew arrives.

  • Bureau’s & vanities – Any piece of furniture with mirror glass attached to it can easily be removed and protected. If glass is part of a cabinet door or a coffee table, it can be wrapped intact. In case you’re not sure about what to disassemble, wait for the movers to arrive and they will help make the decision on how to best transport your items.
    Large dining room tables – Regular size dining tables can be wrapped and loaded as-is. If you own a larger, heavier table, the legs will be disassembled and the components will be wrapped separately. This prevents any breakage during transit.

  • Bookcases/shelving units– If your bookcase has glass shelves or the shelves come right off on their own, our movers will remove them and wrap them separately.

TIP: When disassembling your furniture, be sure to keep ALL screws and parts in a labeled, sealable plastic bag.
