What is it?
Professional moving companies can disassemble your furniture for transport and reassemble it at your new home. This isn't something that can be done to all types of furniture. Even if it was, it's not something that you would always want. Disassembly and reassembly take time and effort on the part of the movers which translates to more costs for the customer. Generally, the types of furniture that can be disassembled would be made of wood, such as cabinets, drawers, and desks. To be disassembled, a piece of furniture may also have to be in good condition. Depending on how it was constructed, old or poor quality furniture may be at risk of breaking during disassembly.
Why would you want it?
There are a few reasons why you might want, or need, to have your furniture disassembled before transport. All of the reasons have to do with reducing the size of the furniture. For one, disassembled furniture usually takes up less space in a moving truck, making it easier to load. Furthermore, it's a lot less work to carry smaller parts of the furniture than it is to carry it as a whole, especially if the furniture is particularly heavy. Lastly, some pieces of furniture may be too large to fit through doors or down stairs. On the other hand, the individual parts will almost always fit through any doors, hallways or stairwells. If your furniture is particularly large or heavy, it may be worth looking into disassembly.
What to be cautious of
If you decide that your furniture needs disassembly and reassembly, you need to take care when choosing a moving company. As stated earlier, some pieces of furniture are at risk of being damaged by the disassembly process. This is the reason you don't want to disassemble it yourself. When hiring a moving company, you must do your research to ensure that they employ someone with experience in disassembly and reassembly. You don't want someone with little experience dismantling your furniture. It's all well and good to save money, but if your furniture gets ruined as a result, you may end up paying even more.
