How to Disassemble Furniture Correctly Ready For a Move

Are you about to move homes in Sutherland Shire or any of the suburbs in Sydney? Are you moving into a new home, a new apartment, or maybe a different office building in the Central Business District? Well, one of the most challenging things that you’ll ever have to do in your moving process is the moving and packing of furniture. These large pieces of important items in your home or office are the most difficult to move, and they can cause the most stress in your moving process.

Aside from furniture being heavy and bulky, you’ll also be faced with the task of moving them through narrow hallways, doors, through elevators, and even flights of stairs. Doing it on your own can be impossible. So what’s the best thing to do? Well, in order for you to move your big items efficiently and safely, you will have to disassemble them.

Disassembling your furniture can minimize large shapes, allowing you easy movement and access through small openings and hallways. It also helps distribute the weight, reducing the risk for injuries.

So how do you disassemble your furniture? Here are tips to make furniture disassembly smoother and easier:


There will be a lot of disassembling with screws involved so better be prepared with the right tools such as hammers and screwdrivers.


As mentioned, you will be dealing with a lot of screws, bolts, and pieces. These can be a challenge to organize and a ziplock bag can be the best storage for these small pieces.

Ziplock bags are transparent so you can see through them and you can also separate the screws depending on which furniture they belong to. Ziplock bags are also easy to label – just write down the labels with a permanent marker and you’re good to go.


You don’t have to completely disassemble a piece of furniture. You can choose to remove the legs of a table, or only the headboard of your bed, or only the joints of a bookshelf. Determine which pieces may be a challenge when you move them out of your home.


If you have a large moving truck, measure your furniture if they fit through the door. If it’s big enough for your wardrobe to be placed inside without having to disassemble it, then you won’t have to remove any of its parts. If you have a large desk and you can fit boxes underneath, then you won’t have to remove the legs as well.
