  • Moving Often? Consider Flat-pack Furniture
    provided for every living space including outdoor furniture and swingsets For people who move often it can be the ideal furniture choice If you live near a furniture warehouse that specialises in ready to assemble furniture you can even select everything you require before you move and coordinate the pickup along with the rest of your belongings on moving day The savings on delivery charges will offset the removalist cost nicely When it comes time for assembly remember not to drill the screws too tight You may want to take the furniture apart again before your next move saving you more money Disassembly advice Breaking down flat pack furniture is an easy process simply follow the assembly instructions in reverse order Once disassembled your furniture will take up less space in the moving truck and if packed properly with blankets or the original box there is little chance of damage Ask the helpful staff at Sydney Moving about providing extra blankets if required When you are disassembling your furniture it s important to label every piece especially when there are many parts of similar size and shape Be sure to keep the various fasteners and screws in correctly labelled bags The most common problem arising from moving flatpack furniture is that most people toss out the assembly instructions The good news is that many manufacturers of flat pack furniture provide online instruction manuals But just in case it s always a good idea to save your manual and flat pack assembly tool kit for as long as you own the furnishing The only downside with ready to assemble furniture is that it is made from particle board and can be a little fragile and easily chipped It s a much safer idea to move it disassembled or re packed in
