If you are moving to a new home or changing the decor it is likely you’ll look for furniture shipping at some point. Regardless of whether it’s your old furniture on removal or recently bought furniture straight from shop, furniture transportation is always quite problematic. Naturally the kind of furniture in need of shipment matters – shelves and night tables could fit inside your car, however a bookcase or a kitchen table will likely become an issue. When you have a van at your disposal, you can ship the furniture yourself, however if you don’t, you’ll need help from a hauler. In search for a trustworthy service that won’t cost a fortune, consider trying a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans.
Securing furniture for transportation
When planning to move your furniture, there are rules you have to follow, when it comes to preparing them for transportation. First of all, don’t forget to remove all the contents from the furniture – even if things inside seem light. Some jolts as well as shocks are inevitable on the road and every extra item moving freely within your furniture may become a potential danger. Besides empty furniture will be easier to move.
Dismantle every part that you can – if your furniture can be dismantled without damage and shipped in parts, that’s the best way to ship it. A table in pieces will also be more simple to fit inside of a van. The main downside of such a solution is that the disassembling can be time-consuming, as unskilfully dismantled furniture might be difficult or downright impossible to reassemble after transportation. Also – it’s good to be very cautious with small parts (screws etc.). It’s safer to transport them together, e.g. in a Ziploc bag.
There is furniture (especially antiques) that mustn’t be dismantled and have to be shipped in one piece. How to ship them securely? The possibility that you have a box big enough to fit a dinner table is rather small, however you can still secure your cargo for the shipping. When preparing furniture for the time of shipment bubble foil will be of significant value. Wrap all the delicate parts and every corner with bubble foil to prevent your cargo from breaking in case anything bumps into it during shipment. If you have no bubble foil, you may also use cardboard to secure the corners.
When you’re transporting furniture with some particularly delicate elements (like containing glass or delicate fabrics) you should be especially careful during shipment. When you can, you should transport them separately, enclosed in protective layers of cloth or bubble wrap (every glass element should be shipped that way). If it’s a part of furniture that cannot be disassembled, enclose it in additional layers of bubble foil. Don’t forget to mention to the hauler that he’s shipping fragile load.
As was mentioned above, usually you will need help with transporting furniture. When searching for a transport provider it’s smart to find out whether he offers assistance with loading as well as unloading. Don’t forget to specify the floor they should be taken from and the floor they must be transported to – and if there is an elevator the haulers can use.

Hiring him will probably cost more, but should something happen to your cargo during transportation, you will have right to reimbursement.
Cost of furniture transportation
Since furniture is a very wide category, a price of furniture shipment may be rather hard to predict. When estimating the cost of shipment you have to consider the route length, type of job (domestic or international), size and weight of the cargo, whether the cargo is fragile etc. A good way to cut the cost of furniture transportation is to hire a transport provider who is travelling on your route anyway – thanks to partial loads you can pay considerably less for the shipment, without losing the quality of the service.
