Most people first move out of their parents' home and into a dorm or apartment. Then, they often move into a larger apartment or a small house, and a few years later, an even larger family home. Do you recognize a pattern here? People move into larger and larger abodes as time goes on — which is why most moving tips assume you're moving into a larger home. But what if you're downsizing for whatever reason?
Even though transporting less bulky items is easy, it could be strenuous to move large furniture pieces, particularly without professional assistance. Delicate processes such as furniture removals require proper equipment and extensive planning. Otherwise, your furniture could be damaged or scratched in the process even before you arrive at the new place.
For this reason, you may want to prioritize the protection of your furniture. Luckily, there are many ways to achieve this, including getting an insurance cover for your goods while in transit.
