Furniture assembly tips

Furniture assembly tips
  • Assembly services
     
    There are two types of people in the world – those who thrive on the assembly of furniture – and those who fear the very thought of it. Whether you fall in the former or latter, these tips may help you through the process. Whether you are moving furniture near or far, from home or office, the team at Next Level Removals have you covered.

    Before you move or purchase anything – measure the area it will live in and carefully match it against the measurements of the new piece of furniture. If it lines up well, then also be sure to research the difficulty of assembly before purchasing – this will help you know if you need help way ahead of time.

    Once you’ve got your piece of furniture in front of you ready to go, we suggest the following:

    1. Clear a spacious workspace that gives you space to move around and reach all angles of the pieces. Lay down some hessian or blankets to protect both your flooring and the new furniture while you move it around and put it together.
    2. Know what tools you’ll need and have them at arm’s reach, this eliminates any additionally, unnecessary stress.
    3. Lay the pieces from your package out flat in the space and compare everything received against the instruction booklet to ensure you’ve got everything, and everything is labelled correctly.
    4. Be patient and take your time as you piece everything together. If you don’t have an extra set of hands to help, using clamps can be a great way to hold everything together as you work. Remember not to tighten all screws completely as you go, doing this at the end will help keep everything in line.
    5. Resist the urge to start more than one piece at a time! We know that frustrations build and you’ll long to leave the hard part behind and move onto the shiny new piece sitting next to you – but you’ll regret it once the excitement of the new one wears off too.
    6. Revisit your work the next day to make sure all the screws and hinges are still in place as they should be.
    7. You can get creative too! Don’t be afraid to swap out any handles for something that suits your colour scheme or is a little funkier than the standard, or paint/laminate a door or shelf.

     
    Our top tip If you are moving to a new house or office – particularly if you are move interstate remember to keep the all pieces together after your disassemble your furniture, as you may forget which screws go with which piece of furniture after a few days of moving. Take photos and keep them together in your camera roll or great albums on your phone. This will make assembly much easier at the new home or office.
     
    Sometimes the fear of scratching a new piece of furniture or causing damage is just too much – in this instance we suggest outsourcing.

Why Hire Condo Cleaning Services?

Why Hire Condo Cleaning Services?

Do you live in a condo and need regular cleaning services? Or are you planning to move and need to clean up your residence after leaving? Well, then you will need professional condo cleaning services Edmonton residents can trust. The good news is that there are professional cleaning companies that provide low, affordable rates. They can help keep your condo clean or perform residential cleaning in case you are moving. Most condo cleaning services provide a discount when you book with them on weekly, bi-weekly and or monthly bases. So do not be frightened of the hourly rate, because when it all works out, it may be more affordable than you though.

How Condo Cleaning Services Works for You

While condos are different in terms of their size compared to homes, the same cleaning services apply. A professional cleaning company will charge a package rate for their services which may include the following:

– Regular or Scheduled Cleaning

– Deep Cleaning

– One-Time Cleaning

A regular or scheduled service lets you have your condo cleaned on a regular basis at a time of your choosing. This means that you can select a package that is once per week, twice per week, twice per month, once a month, or whenever it works best for you. Depending on your needs, you can work with the cleaning company to find the right times when they can come by and clean your condo.

Residential cleaning services are performed for two basic reasons. First, when you employ the company to clean your condo, they usually start with a deep cleaning to ensure that everything is fresh and like-new. Then they begin their regular cleaning services.

Also, when you are moving out of your condo or perhaps moving in, and you need a deep cleaning performed.

A one-time cleaning is when you have an emergency and need a quick cleaning. Or perhaps before or after a party, event, or get-together.

Why Choose a Professional Cleaning Service?

There are good reasons why you should consider cleaning services for your condo. Especially if you are juggling work, family, and other responsibilities.

Time

Consider the time it takes to fully clean your condo, and you can see the advantages of having a professional service do the job. Something that may take you hours to perform is handled instead by a trained crew that cleans your condo and backs up the work.

Effort

The effort it takes to clean is something that few people look forward to, especially after a long day at work or when trying to spend time with your family. Knowing that the work is being handled by a trusted company means that you can put your energy to better use.

Affordable

The package prices that the best cleaning services provide are designed to fit within your budget. Not only that, but think of what you could be doing with the time that otherwise would be spent cleaning your condo. Having an affordable cleaning service can be quite beneficial to your condo and your pocketbook.

If you are looking for an example of a professional cleaning company, then check out Duty Cleaners. They are the best residential cleaning Edmonton company that is properly licensed and insured. They also have a stellar record of reviews and recommendations from satisfied customers.

Should I hire a Solo Cleaner?

Many people have run into the nightmares of hiring a solo cleaner, and in the short run it’s cost-effective, but in the long run, it’s more expensive.

Why do we say that? We’ll solo cleaners are usually not insured and bonded, and so if your items get damaged or stolen, who pays? You. The headaches you go through are just not worth it over a long period of time.

The lack of scheduling, consistency in cleaning, and below average customer service can cause more stress that wasn’t needed. Solo cleaners don’t use expensive software’s that track your schedules, notes you’ve put on file, and allow you to make changes when possible.

So, if you needed the microwave cleaned this time around, you’d have to remind your cleaners, but what if you’re not home to remind them? Do you think they will remember? Most likely not.

Does your solo cleaner use the best products to clean your home? Or are they using dollar store supplies that leave streaks on your floor? We use only the best products to clean your home, after testing thousands of homes, we know what’s best. Sometimes solo cleaners are non-experienced, and they will say “this stain will not come off.” When in reality, it will, by using the right cleaning solution.

Solo cleaners do not have a brand backing them. Or a customer service line, a re-clean guarantee, or insurance in case of emergencies. Also, you know nothing about them. It is already dangerous to let strangers in your home with or without you there. But it’s even more dangerous when you know nothing of them. If you want that peace of mind, you will hire a professional cleaning service.

This is why you should choose a professional cleaning company. Duty Cleaners have a reputation to uphold, as well as branding, customer service, and great reviews.

7 Tips for Moving Interstate

7 Tips for Moving Interstate

Moving interstate in Australia is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life, and tips for moving interstate can help to put your mind at ease throughout the process. There are a number of different reasons people usually make the move to another state. Whether for a new job opportunity, cheaper house prices, or for a change of lifestyle.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in the past 5 years around 43% of Australians have moved home. Whatever the reason for moving, there is a lot which must be carefully considered.

It’s important to first plan whether you can afford to move, and the cost of living in the new state. Also, can you afford the large expense of the moving process interstate?

Packing up your entire life to fit into a truck, can be a rather stressful time. We’ve made the process easier so that you don’t leave everything to the last minute.

Here are 7 Tips for Moving Interstate:

  • Plan Everything

A month before your move, start to make a list of everything you need to do before your move. You should do this before you even pack a single box. Last minute packing and moving is a complete nightmare. Work out how long everything will take you to complete, as well as on which days you will do each task.

Creating a checklist helps to make sure you don’t forget anything before you leave your home for the last time. It is also the best time to work out which tasks you can complete on your own. As well as which you need help from friends or family, or to hire a professional for.

  • Start Early

There is nothing more stressful than last minute moving. Moving is a very time-consuming process. It also requires a lot of patience and often takes longer than most people realize. This leads to frantically trying to do everything at the last minute with moving day fast approaching. Doing so can lead to you forgetting important things or losing or misplacing items. It can also cause damage to occur in transit due to not being correctly packed.

So make sure to avoid unnecessary problems, accidents, and bills. By giving yourself plenty of time, you can have everything done smoothly, and get rid of any time pressure.

  • Look For Help

If they are free and willing to lend a helping hand, friends and family can help make the moving process easier. They can also save a lot of time. If they come over to help pack and clean, buy some pizzas and drinks to thank them. It’s lucky to have friends and family help pack and clean your home. But it’s very unlikely for them to help you with the moving process interstate.

This is where it’s best to hire professional and reliable interstate movers. Be sure to get a few different quotes. But, don’t base your decision on price alone. Cheap removalists are often inexperienced, unreliable, and damage your possessions during moving.

Spending a little bit more money on a removalist who is professional and experienced will help reduce the stress of your move. After all, they will be handling your entire lifetime of possessions, so you need to make sure you can trust them.

  • Smart Packing

Instead of randomly picking things in boxes, it’s advisable to organise everything. This will make it easier to unpack everything when you arrive at your new home. It will also let you find something fast you may need before you leave.

Pack items in boxes together from the same home, and clearly label the boxes. This makes it easy to know where to put them in your new home.

Be sure to place the heaviest items at the bottom of each box, and also that each box is secure so that items can freely move around. Using bubble wrap or newspaper is great for this. Also, ensure that each box is properly sealed.

Also, if possible, disassemble large items, and pack them into smaller boxes. This will help reduce the amount of space you need, and possibly save you money by being able to hire a smaller truck for your interstate removal.

If you don’t have the time or need some extra help packing, removalists provide packing services. Professional packers will safely and securely pack for you before the move.

  • Check the Quarantine Laws

Australia has some of the world’s most strict quarantine laws. They also apply when moving
interstate.

Items such as plants, agricultural equipment, or animal products should not be brought to your
new home interstate. It’s possible they contain things such as soil or contaminants.
The rules and regulations for each state are listed on Australian Interstate Quarantine. Double
check exactly what you can and can’t take with you.

  • What Do You Need?

Moving interstate means you will need to sort through all your belongings. Then you need to
pack your life into boxes. While time-consuming, it provides the perfect opportunity to decide
what you need to bring with you, and also what you no longer want.

By either selling, donating, or throwing out old items, it will allow you to cut down on your
moving costs, as you won’t need to move as many boxes.

Also, with the money you make from selling items you no longer need, it will help reduce the
cost of moving.

  • Keep Your Important Items Separate

It’s a good idea to keep your important items separate to everything else, even if you are using
professional removalists. You should prepare a bag or box of your most essential items and
personally move this yourself. Include things which you will need to access on moving day.
Such as your mobile phone and charger, laptop/tablet, medications, and toiletries.

Also be sure to include all your important documents. Such as birth certificates, and passports.
Don’t forget sensitive information like financial records or medical documents.

It’s also recommended that you keep any sentimental or valuable items with you during the
moving process. This way you know that the most important things are safe at all times.

Be sure to know exactly where these items are at all times. So that you don’t have to go
searching through box after box in case an emergency arises.

By following these tips for moving interstate you will ensure that the moving process is a lot
easier and less stressful.

Moving House With Pets – Do’s & Don’ts

Moving House With Pets – Do’s & Don’ts

Moving house can be difficult even with just your human family. It’s even more challenging for pets. They don’t understand why everything in their home is suddenly changing and being moved around, which can cause them a lot of stress and anxiety.

In some cases moving home actually causes pets to go missing. They escape and try to return to their previous home. Also, it can cause behavioural problems or even cause them to have health problems.

During moving time, pets need a lot of extra attention to reassure them everything is ok. Cats and Dogs especially become very territorial and find moving house very disorientating and disruptive to their normal behaviour.

Luckily, there are many ways to make moving easier on your beloved pets and family!

These do’s and don’ts will help your pets settle into their new environment, and quickly feel at home.

 

DO’S When Moving With Pets

✔️ DO Ask a friend or relative to look after your pet on moving day. This will allow your pet to be out of the way, and allow you to have space and time needed for a move without worrying your pet will be in the way and a distraction. It also ensures your pet is away from any stressful situations and loud noises while being with someone they are familiar with.

✔️ DO Would you would rather keep your pet with you while you move? Have one room in your old house set aside for your pet. Keep the door shut to help reduce any noise or constant action. To help calm your pet be sure to also have their toys, food, water, and bedding in the room. Regularly check on your pet throughout the process too, and let them know they aren’t being punished.

✔️ DO Pack your pet’s items lastly, right before you move. Being around familiar blankets, bedding, and toys will help provide comfort.

✔️ DO Make sure your pet’s microchip and ID tag have been updated to include your new home address. In case your pet manages to escape your new house and try to make their way back home. It’s critical they can be identified should they become lost, so that they can be returned to you safely.

✔️ DO Give your pet plenty of attention and reassurance throughout the move – on moving day, and immediately after moving to your new home. Make them feel safe and comfortable throughout the process which will help them to adjust quicker.

✔️ DO Unpack all of the essential items first before your pet is introduced to the new house, if possible. Try to place furniture and other items in a similar layout to the old home. Seeing familiar things in a new environment will help your pet feel more comfortable and ease the transition.

✔️ DO make regular water and toilet breaks on the drive to your new home if it’s a long distance. Also, be sure that your pet is secure in the vehicle, and take into consideration the heat. Never leave your pet alone in a parked car, as the temperature can rapidly rise and have tragic consequences.

DON’TS When Moving With Pets

Make sure not to do any of the following when moving with pets or you can make them extra stressed, disoriented and scared.

X DON’T feed your pet right before you put them in the car to move. If they have just eaten, they are more likely to get sick. Pets, just like humans also can suffer from motion sickness.

X DON’T let your pet explore your new backyard before you’ve thoroughly checked it first. There is a chance it may not be secure. Inspect the fencing around the perimeter and walls. Also, check for any gaps in the fence or broken panels. When you let your pet outside for the first time to explore, go outside with them so that they feel more confident venturing out to explore their new surroundings.

X DON’T assume your pet will adjust right away to their new environment. It often may talk a while for them to settle in to feel at home. Pets are creatures of comfort. Give them plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable in their new surroundings. When you first move, try not to leave your pet alone as much as possible until they have comfortably settled in. Otherwise, it can cause a lot of anxiety.

X DON’T tell them off in the first few days if they start to chew on things or have an “accident”. It takes time for pets to adjust to change. In particular, for dogs, it causes them to become very stressed and anxious. At first, be sure to monitor the way your pet behaves, and also keep them in an area which has minimal furniture.

X DON’T change your regular feeding or walking routine if possible. By following your pet’s daily routine both in the days leading up to the move and also once you are in your new home, it will help to ease the transition and make it more manageable. It will also help your pet feel comfortable and more relaxed.

X DON’T wash their bedding until a few weeks after the move. This is so that they have something familiar to smell in the new house to help them settle in and feel at home.

By following these do’s and don’ts, you will help make the move to a new home more comfortable for your pet. For more advice on how to reduce stress for your pet and how to keep them relaxed and calm, it’s advisable to consult your vet.

Taking care of valuable items when moving

Taking care of valuable items when moving

When getting ready for a move, your primary concern is to ensure a secure packing for everything. And when you are looking for a good removalist company online, the thought of how you are going to move your valuable items stays topmost in your mind. Packing and moving valuables is distinctly different from packing & moving standard furniture and belongings. Here is a guide that will help ensure that taking care of valuable items when moving doesn’t have to be too much of a stress point.

moving valuable items

Some valuable items that you should move yourself

When moving any valuables with a relocation company, there is a list of things that should ideally be with you, including:

  • Documentation such as employment contracts, stock certificates, contracts with financial institutions, ID’s, chequebooks, credit cards, securities, bonds, doctor & other vital records
  • Jewels and furs
  • Dollars and foreign currencies
  • Stamp or coin collections
  • Soft copies of data on your computer

Hire a professional removalist company with experience

Aside from these valuable items, there could be things like precious china, antique furniture and other valuables such as expensive décor or artwork, pianos and other costly musical instruments that have. Many people also have belongings that have sentimental value, and these too have to be moved securely.

Whether you are moving office or home, the one way to rest assured that all these things are moved safely is to hire the services of an experienced and expert removalist company for the job. These professionals have the training to handle all your valuable items with care. They will pack these items securely and carefully.

They will also affix “fragile” stickers or “this side up” etc. stickers to indicate that these are valuable or delicate items and need special care during the move. It is essential to inform the company that you are transporting these things, so their personnel will handle them with care and mark them accordingly as well.

Have Insurance

If you have some valuables like very expensive artwork, a grand piano or even any antique furniture etc. it’s a good idea to have these insured before the move. While a good removalist company will make sure that it transport these things correctly, its best to have insurance cover just in case something untoward occurs, and these pieces suffer damage.

Minimize the downtime in your business while moving

Minimize the downtime in your business while moving

An office removal can be very stressful for everyone involved; the entire office workings get topsy-turvy, and things are all out of place. You worry about who is going to field phone calls from customers and clients, deal with emails and manage all the other functions. Besides, there is a lot of work that needs to be done on a  daily basis, and no commercial establishment (office or any other business) can afford to lose working days even if it is for something as important as a move. While most of these things are unavoidable, there are some things that you can do to minimise the downtime in your business while moving. Here are a few useful tips:

  1. Seek out a company that offers weekend /night relocations

This is a straightforward solution that most credible removals companies offer. You can easily plan the move over a weekend or overnight (based on where your new office premises are located). You would only need a couple of staff members to supervise the removal, so your typical work week activities aren’t affected in any way.

Most companies have the equipment & tools to get the job efficiently done during the day; this means they will be even more efficient if they can pack and move everything after office hours when there is no one around, getting in the way of the technicians.

  1. Find a removalist who can offer you additional labour to get the job done quicker

A well-established removal company would be able to accommodate requests for an expedited move and can deploy other technicians on request. While these additional services increase the cost of the overall move, it reduces your downtime significantly, and you can start regular operations within a shorter timeframe. This means the impact on productivity and profitability is minimal. Some removals companies can also assign professional planners/coordinators who can help execute and monitor the process.

  1. Pack right!

Most removal companies provide labels that you can use on the boxes and items you pack. To ensure that every item is placed correctly at the new location, the movers give you numbered colour-coded labels that properly correspond with the floor plan at the new office location. You should encourage your employees to use bold markers to indicate the proper room numbers of everything that needs to be moved including floor mats, chairs, removable shelves, keyboards, glass desktops, and lamps. Place all the labels where they can be easily seen.

  1. Have all your items ready

If you leave all the sorting and packing for the last day, that can lead to chaos and the entire process will take much longer. This also means the technicians won’t be able to work efficiently which will increase the downtime as well. This is why it’s far better to ensure that all the items are packed and ready.

How to budget for your office or commercial relocation

How to budget for your office or commercial relocation

When moving office, it’s almost impossible to keep track of every little thing that might surface. But you can make the move as seamless as possible if you budget everything right. Here are a few pointers to follow:

  1. Create/download a template

It’s very easy to budget everything well when you use an online template. That will help you keep all your expense in one place, where they can be easily accessed as you would need to consult it often in the days leading up to the move.

  1. Be realistic about the removals cost

Some things you should do include:

  • It’s important to conduct a certain amount of research on different removal companies in your area and get quotes from multiple providers. While it may seem like adding the lowest amount to your budget is the best thing to do, you should add in the highest one so you have some buffer in case there are changes and you need some additional packing material or need to add some more items for removal etc.
  • Factor in extra services such as hiring the removalists for packing and unpacking, disconnecting and connecting PCs etc.
  • Include extra charges such as special transport arrangements (such as temperature-controlled trucks for transporting sensitive materials), on-site custom crating for expensive equipment, accommodating tight schedules, expediting the move or moving over a holiday.
  1. Include packing materials cost

Most removal companies will provide quotes with and without packing materials (as per your requirement) and many providers also include a certain amount of packaging in the quote as part of their standard services. If you plan to complete the entire packing project by yourself, the cost of all the required packing materials isn’t something you can ignore.

An office move involves a variety of packing materials such as bubble wrap, small/medium/large boxes, packing paper, furniture blankets, packing tape and stretch tape etc. All these supplies will cost a significant amount of money; but you might be able to get a very good deal and have them included in the quote and overall packing cost.

  1. Disconnecting and reconnecting your utilities

Aside from this, you need to ensure that all office repairs and cleaning is completed at the older premises. Check Simplymaid prices for more info. Include the expense of disconnecting utilities at the existing office and reconnecting them at the new location.

All of these expenses can amount to a lot; the one way to reduce your stress is to examine your budget beforehand and allocate a little more than the estimated costs. In addition, look for a removal company that gives you packaging materials at a discounted rate. While some unexpected problems may arise, if you focus on budgeting for the move well, you will find that you have enough left over for contingencies and will be able to manage the move well.

If you want to know more about packing and moving or need to book a service, don’t hesitate to contact us at Next Level Removals or all 1300 005 400.

How You Can Donate to Charity When Moving

How You Can Donate to Charity When Moving

When moving home we generally de-clutter and discard a number of items that we no long have any use for. Kitchen items, toys and old clothing are a large percentage of the things we discard while moving. While it’s great to take the opportunity to de-clutter when moving home, we also tend to throw away a large number of perfectly good items in the bin. But it’s possible to put these to better use- why not donate them so someone less-fortunate than you   It’s a great feeling to know that you are helping others.

When you are moving house, you go through the process of sifting through heap loads of belongings. As we grow older and our family size increases, we end up collecting a lot of things and also have multiples of certain items. We often start cleaning our closets and find clothes that haven’t been touched for years; but we don’t throw them away and they just get put back in the closet again.

In addition we also end up collecting a number of things we don’t need such as books, old TV’s, shoes and more. Only when we start packing during a move do we realise that there are so many excessive things that are in perfectly good shape that we have no use for any longer. These are the things you should consider donating to charity when moving.

The charities

Some of the charities many our clients donate their unwanted belongings to  are:

  • Red Cross Australia– Red Cross Shops rely on the local communities to donate items for them to sell. Some of the items you can donate to them include good quality summer and spring clothing and accessories and homewares. You can find a Red Cross Shop, closest to you via their site.
  • St Vincent De Paul Donating to Vinnies as they are called is a great idea. You can donate good-quality books, clothes, music and any other bric-a-brac and it will get a new life, as it helps support Australians that are having a tough time and it helps reduce landfill. Most of these shops don’t accept electrical appliances for safety and legal reasons and they don’t accept mattresses either. You can find more information on their website.
  • Save the children This organisation accepts a variety of items including school supplies, board games and crayons etc. If you have kids, there are bound to be a lot of extra things in a good condition that can be donated to a good cause.
  • Salvos– You can donate your quality used furniture, toys clothing & homewares to the Salvos. You’ll introduce far less waste into the environment and it’s a great way to help raise money for the organisation’s vital community projects. Don’t donate anything that is damaged, stained, ripped, torn or broken or faulty; if there’s something wrong the item, it can’t be sold.

If you want to know which other charities you can donate your old belongings to before moving, check the Give Now site and choose a charity you prefer.

Use Plastic Boxes

Use Plastic Boxes

Why use Plastic Boxes For your Move? 

Most people use cardboard boxes during a move and they are considered the standard way to transport things; but are they really the safest way? While cardboard boxes are designed to offer some level of impact protection and support, they won’t keep your possessions completely safe. In fact, it’s not uncommon for delicate items to become damaged during the move because cardboard boxes didn’t offer the amount of protection the items needed. That’s one of the reasons why it’s a good idea to consider plastic boxes.

What are the benefits of plastic boxes? 

Plastic boxes offer a number of advantages over cardboard ones and can make the entire moving process easier for you. Here are some reasons why you should consider using them:

  • Resistant to impact – Plastic boxes have higher impact resistance than regular cardboard moving boxes. They can easily withstand the rattling and shaking during the transportation process so you don’t need to worry about the more fragile items that are being transported.
  • Stackable – These boxes are designed to be stackable so you can easily place them on top of one another, which allows you to utilise the space in the transport truck more efficiently.
  • Opening and closing boxes – Most plastic boxes come with a snap lock mechanism that can keep the lip in place. You don’t need to worry about tape and other such items to seal your possessions in. It’s also easier to open or close these boxes as you won’t need to peel away the tape.
  • No risk of falling open – There is no risk of these boxes falling open at the bottom as cardboard boxes are.

We offer plastic boxes on all moves if required. We can also provide advice on the number of boxes you will need in order to transport all of your possessions.  If you want to know more about packing and moving, or need to book a service, don’t hesitate to contact us at Next Level Removals or all 1300 005 400.

Tools Handy To Reassemble Items

Tools Handy To Reassemble Items

Have Tools Handy To Reassemble Items

Large pieces of furniture like shelves, beds, and storage units are often disassembled and packed before they are moved. This ensures they’re less likely to become damaged and are easier to move. If you have hired an experienced removalist with a full-service move, they will handle disassembling the furniture and reassembling it at the location. However, if you haven’t engaged a full service, you will need to hire a professional to reassemble or handle the process yourself.

What kind of tools do you need? 

It’s a good idea to keep a number of essentials handy if you need to reassemble furniture at your new home. Make sure all of these tools are stored in a clearly marked box so you don’t need search for them through a large number of packed boxes. Here’s a list of tools you should have:

  • Scissors or a cutter to remove the packaging.
  • Pencil or marker to make notes and mark areas if needed.
  • Allen wrenches or hex keys to drive the screws and nails into the material and ensure they’re not visible from the top.
  • Phillips head screwdriver to drive the screws into the material.
  • A traditional hammer or a rubber mallet.
  • Furniture adhesive if needed.
  • Instruction manuals to reassemble furniture.
  • Spare screws and nails that fit into the furniture pieces to ensure you have something to use if your original screws go missing.
