What Are the Most Difficult Items to Move From Your Home?

Jan 28, 2022 | Moving Help, Moving Tips

When it comes to a local move, many homeowners don’t realize until it’s too late that some items in their homes are extremely difficult to safely relocate.

Fortunately, with the help of an experienced moving company, even the most hard-to-move items can get from point A to point B without any issue.

Here’s a look at the most difficult items to move from your home and how our team of qualified movers approaches specific moving challenges.

Piano Moving

Although the sound of a piano may be music to the ears, moving a piano from one home to another can be a nightmare without the right experience.

Unfortunately, pianos are extremely heavy musical instruments that can weigh as much as 1,400 pounds. This means that disassembly is usually required, and even that can result in damage to the instrument and injury to movers without experience.

At the end of the day, hiring a professional mover that specializes in piano moves is not only the safest option but the smartest one. Only someone that specializes in the construction and deconstruction of a piano can guarantee fewer risks within the moving process.

Antique Furniture Moving

Antique furniture can be large, heavy pieces of furniture. In most cases, these pieces aren’t built for disassembly and must be moved out of a home in one piece.

Professional antique movers can secure your furniture, plan out a successful exit path, and implement safe practices that mitigate the risk of irreparable damage to your furniture and your home.

Firearm Collections and Gun Safe Moving

Although general preparation and moving single firearms isn’t exactly difficult to work, many families secure their larger firearm collections in large, heavy safes. Effectively clearing out gun safes and clearing the path for removal can be a difficult task without the help of a professional mover.

Ensure that your firearm collection is moved without a dangerous misfire or damage to your valuables with Element Moving & Storage behind your move. We have the experience and equipment you need to safely move your firearm collection and have a stress-free move.

Moving Wine Collections

Although wine collections can be easy to physically move, it can be difficult to keep them safe and at a regulated temperature that preserves the quality of your wine.

Element Moving & Storage specializes in the relocation of valuable wine collections. We can help you pack your wines in safe, secure containers and ensure they remain at safe temperatures throughout your move.

If your new home isn’t quite ready to welcome an extensive wine collection, our local storage services serve as an affordable, climate-controlled, and reliable solution to safeguard your wine for easy access when you need it!

Moving Plants

Plants are usually forgotten until the very last minute and end up becoming one of the messiest aspects of a move. For your local move, make sure to consider your plants beforehand, so you aren’t stuck cleaning up any unexpected soil spills.

Our tips for easy plant preparation are:

  • Move your plants to plastic planters a couple of weeks before the move. This makes the move of a living plant a less jarring experience for the plant itself.
  • On moving day, move your plants into an open container for a mess-free move
  • Relocate your plants in your own vehicle to ensure they remain in a climate-controlled environment
