The professional movers from Economy Moving & Storage in Cincinnati, OH, are dedicated to helping their clients save money during local and long distance moves. Some moving companies try to upsell their customers by telling them that everything has to be contracted out to professionals, but that just isn’t true.
According to Economy Moving & Storage there are lots of ways to cut down on moving costs, and one easy method is to disassemble and reassemble your furniture yourself. If all you do is disassemble the beds in your home before the moving helpers arrive you can save the crew a lot of time and yourself a lot of dough.
Here’s a simple guide to disassembling a bed in three easy steps:
- Step 1: Take the mattress and the box spring off the bed frame and lean them against a wall.
- Step 2: Most beds have slats that support the box spring and mattress. Unscrew the slats and carefully store all of the screws together in a plastic bag. Remove the slats from the bed, tape them together, and set them aside.
- Step 3: To remove the footboard and headboard, gently lift up the side support slats. One at a time, remove the footboard and then the headboard from the rest of the bed.
That’s all there is to it! You don’t have to pad wrap each piece of wood or try to pack anything yourself. All you need to do is lean each piece of the bed frame up against the wall and Economy Moving & Storage will take care of the rest.
