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.
- Power screwdriver if you need to assemble several pieces of furniture at the same time.
Furniture reassembly is best left to the professionals because you might damage the pieces while attempting to reassemble them. Professionals can also fix any minor scratches and cosmetic problems that might happen during the moving process and restore the appearance of your furniture.
