Moving a Dresser with Mirror Tips

One of the basic problems while moving bulky and heavy furniture is weight. Here are some tips to help you in the process of moving heavy furniture as a dresser.

Empty the drawers

If you try to move a dresser having the drawers filled you will find out that you should empty them, before you move the furniture. A dresser is already heavy and its contents make it even heavier. Thus, you need to empty the drawers and put your possessions in boxes. This way, you’ll move the dresser easier and secure your possessions.

Matching of drawers and boxes

Use a piece of painters’ tape and a pen to label each drawer and the boxes respectively. Doing so you will have an image of what goes where while unpacking, saving time and avoiding mess.

Remove the Drawers

If your dresser is still too heavy to transfer easily, you may have to take the drawers out and move them separately. This way, you will reduce the weight of the dresser making the moving easier and avoid the possibility of its fall, hurting the furniture or yourself.

Remove the Mirror

The mirror is the most fragile and delicate piece of the furniture that needs extra care, in order not to suffer damage during the transfer. In case that your mirror can be removed you can wrap it with several layers of bubble wrap and moving tape. This way, you can transfer it separately with extra care.

Care to Non-Removable Mirror

If the mirror is not to be removed or if there is any glass or marble set into the finish of the furniture then thorough padding is more than essential. Pad the mirror with several layers of bubble wrap and then wrap with moving blankets, always securing with tape. Then tape flattened cardboard over the fragile surfaces in order to reserve extra protection.

Protect the chest of drawer

Padding is also essential for the other surfaces of the furniture, as accidents can happen that will cause permanent damage to your dressers. To prevent this from happening, you can wrap the dresser with moving blankets and tape it down. This way, your furniture will arrive safely at your new home without the slightest damage.

Non-Removable Drawers

In case that you are moving the dresser along with the drawers you can tape them before padding, in order to keep them in place. Mind not to use moving tape directly to the furniture as it may destroy its surfaces. Choose painters tape that removes easily.

Use a Special Vehicle

Last but not least, if your dresser is too heavy to be moved in hands, you will need some extra equipment. Rent or borrow a trolley/dolly to carry the dresser. Put the dresser on top of the dolly and secure with moving straps to keep it stable. Move slowly and carefully to the new location.
