The perfect time for NEW is NOW! Moving is one of the best times to purchase new furniture. It’ll cut down on transportation costs and you might even make some extra cash selling your old stuff!

HELP WANTED
When moving large furniture, definitely enlist the help of your friends or family. bigsoftie1Or, if you can swing it, professional movers will make the experience a lot less stressful. Organize your boxes by room or function to make it easier for outside help to move!

Get your new place’s measurements early so you know exactly what will fit. That way you’ll avoid the hassle and disappointment of moving your furniture in, only to find it’s too big or small for the space.

WRAP IT UP
Protect wood surfaces by wrapping blankets around the edges and corners. Wood can get scratched so easily which ruins the effect of a beautiful piece. If you’re renting a moving van, consider adding moving blankets to your order. And make sure any outside help, handles with care!SBC_1574698
