In other words, you’ll want to move it as carefully as the best Miami movers in town would. Fortunately, we’re here to give you the best tips of the industry, as shared by an award-winning Miami moving company. 

Got a sofa, chairs, or an armoire that you don’t want to risk in your upcoming relocation? Follow these tips and your antique furniture will be as safe as can be. 

Wrap Your Furniture in Blankets

Soft blankets will do the same thing for your furniture that it does for you: It’ll keep you furniture safe, snuggly, and (perhaps most importantly) scratch-free. Whether you have a bureau or a canopy bed that needs to get to your new home in one piece, use blankets to keep it beautiful while en route. 

Wrap Your Furniture in Plastic

Use plastic wrap, wrapped tightly around your pieces, to keep larger pieces safe. Even if you have a larger piece like a desk or credenza, if you use plastic wrap alongside blankets, you’ll find that they’ll be good to go during your transit. 

Custom Crating Can Be Your Friend

While it may seem like a more high-end solution, custom crating doesn’t need to be expensive - and it’s undeniably the best way to make sure that your pieces are as safe as can be!
