Furniture Removal PlanningA very big mistake that people make with furniture removal is not thinking past the door. In other words, if you are getting rid of it entirely, there’s nothing to stop you from disassembling what pieces you can, when you can. For instance, a large, bulky armoire is much more difficult to maneuver in-tact than when it’s broken down into smaller components.
A tall dresser, filing cabinet or shelving unit is awkward to handle. Make it a two-person job. Tip the item backward at an angle and have one person carry the top while the other carries the bottom. This centers the weight and keeps the item from swinging out of control. Transporting the item up or down stairs is easier too, since the carrying angle will roughly match the slope of the stairs. —Family HandymanFor large, heavy items that don’t easy deconstruct, using lifting straps and trying standing these on-end to shimmy out the door without having to put too much strain on your body. It’s a good idea to always empty-out dressers, chest of drawers, nightstands, and other types of storage pieces.

It’s a low cost solution that will save you from breaking your back. Here are some more big furniture removal mistakes to avoid.
- Not repurposing. Don’t immediately resign every piece to the trash heap. Instead, think about other uses in another area of the house. This way, you cut down on the project and introduce more function with little to no cost.
- Miscalculating time. Remember the last time you moved from one location to another? Chances are excellent it took a whole lot longer than you planned and it wound up taking time away in a bad way. So, be sure to factor in a day to two day’s worth of contingency time.
- Trying to do too much. It’s very easy to get overextended physically (and psychologically) when you start to purge. Before you know it, you’re physically and mentally exhausted. So, be sure to take breaks, when necessary.
