Transporting an old, worn-out wooden dresser requires extra care to ensure it arrives safely at its destination. Arvada movers can provide helpful tips to help you with this process.
For one thing, you can assess the condition of the dresser. You should look for any loose or broken parts, weak spots, or damage that may need to be repaired before transportation. Removing all items from the dresser, including clothing, accessories, and any fragile or valuable items, is also essential. Obviously, empty drawers help reduce the weight and prevent any shifting during transport.
And in case the dresser has removable drawers, you need to take them out and wrap each individually with bubble wrap or blankets. This protects them from damage and prevents them from sliding open during the transit.
If the dresser has doors, the best thing to do is use tape or rope to secure them shut. This certainly prevents them from swinging open while being moved.
It may be necessary to remove any detachable parts, such as mirror frames or legs, and pack them separately. If that is the case, you should not forget to keep all the screws and hardware in a labeled bag so they do not get lost.
