While moving is not something most people do often, it is still one of the most common causes of damage to wooden furniture. “Wood furniture is more susceptible to damage during a move than any other item. Whether it’s an antique bookcase, a desk passed down for generations or a brand new coffee table, you want to make sure your wood furniture is properly wrapped and protected on moving day,” the author said.
Research suggests that while individuals use a wide variety of objects for padding their furniture, ranging from blankets to bubble wrap, most of these choices are not ideal for wrapping wooden objects. Movers.com’s report suggests using moving blankets, foam padding, and furniture pads whenever possible, and avoiding bubble wraps or plastics.
While bubble wrap may help to protect wooden furniture from bumps and scrapes, it can cause permanent damage to the surface of porous wooden objects. However, the article suggests that bubble wrap or plastics may be used if they are wrapped over top of furniture pads or another approved padding.
The report includes several suggestions for managing extra breakable wooden items and strategies for packing them efficiently but safely in a moving truck. It also explores how to do due diligence on a moving company, such as through background checks, to ensure that they are suited to the job.
