When it comes to moving, many people are concerned about the safety of their children. As such, it is important to know that carriers will not disassemble or reassemble bunk beds or cribs for the safety of their children. However, moving companies will assemble and disassemble your furniture, such as bed frames, in order to move them safely. If your move is considered a local move (less than 100 miles), the movers will charge their normal hourly rates.
For long-distance moves (more than 100 miles or from one state to another), the service will be charged by the peso. It is important to specify to the moving company beforehand if you need this service, as you may be charged a small additional fee if you haven't ordered to pack. When it comes to bunk beds, if they are a very simple bed on top of another bed, that's fine. However, if the bunk bed is an elaborate system with built-in stairs, landings or storage, it cannot be broken down.
To disassemble a crib, lift up the rail and press the bottom with your knee to loosen it. Slide it all the way down and out of the bottom of the crib assembly. You may need to lift the crib or move the side rail to release it completely. It is important to let your moving company know that you need furniture disassembly and assembly services in advance so they can bill you accordingly and have the right people available on the day of your move.
Some moving companies may also provide cleaning services or hire a cleaning service to help you clean your house after everything has moved. If a crib has been assembled incorrectly or has been disassembled and reassembled several times, there is an increased risk of a tragic outcome. Therefore, it is important to discuss your packing and disassembly needs with the moving company so you're both on the same page. When you move locally, your movers will be able to disassemble and assemble your furniture, but your move will take longer and cost you a little more. You should know which items in your home will need to be dismantled before the move (and then reassembled).
Your total cost will depend on the size of your space and the amount of furniture you need to disassemble. If you move on a budget and are fully able to disassemble & reassemble the furniture yourself, do it yourself. The most common items that are dismantled are bed frames, large dining tables, desks (dressing table with built-in mirror) and dressing tables.These types of furniture are designed to be assembled in the room in which they are going to enter, they do not necessarily need to be moved from one place to another. So before you decide whether or not to hire movers for this task, ask yourself if they will know how to reassemble the furniture correctly or if it would be better for you to reassemble it yourself and turn it into a project for your new house.
