How we move furniture

At WridgWays our removalists will be able to look after your furniture from start to finish. If you’re not sure if you should move your furniture or buy new it’s worth considering how you want to move your furniture.

When we move furniture we always strive to ensure we pack your belongings as safely as possible. Fragile items such as glass furniture or televisions need special attention. We can provide specialised protective materials such as furniture pads, blankets, and specialised export wrapping.

Once we have securely packed your furniture, our removalists will transport your belongings to your new home. We always ensure we use the safest and most economical method to transport your furniture, including rail, sea, truck, or road trains. We will choose the best method to suit your needs.

The value of your items

It can be hard to work out if you want to move furniture or buy new. One of the things to consider is the value of your furniture. If some of your belongings have strong sentimental value then you may not be willing to simply sell them. If they are second-hand items you picked up because they were cheap, you may not be as attached to them.

Furniture made out of quality materials may be worth more than an item that was made cheaply. If you are thinking of selling then these are things you need to think about. If you’re short on cash then it might be a good idea to sell any items you’re not attached to. If you own any antique or vintage items, these will be worth even more.

New furniture can be expensive to buy, so when thinking about whether to move furniture or buy new you’ll need to work out how much new furniture you’ll need. If replacing all the sold items ends up costing more than moving them with you then it’s not worthwhile selling everything.

Find out if it fits

There is no point moving all your furniture with you only to find out that it won’t fit. Before you decide if you should move your furniture or buy new, you’ll need to check the dimensions of your new home. If you can’t go and look at it yourself make sure you get accurate measurements so you can check these against your furniture.

Large or fragile items may also be harder to move, which means there is a higher chance of them getting damaged. While our experienced removalists strive to ensure your goods are not damaged, accidents can still occur.

If you are downsizing with your new home you will need to work out which items you can keep and which you can’t. This may allow you to sell some furniture that will no longer fit and keep items that you’ll be able to continue using.
