How to save money on moving day

Moving tip for this week we will talk about disassembly and re-assembling beds to help save time and money on your move.  While Brothers Moving & Storage will take beds apart and put beds back together, you can save time by doing this yourself.

How to take apart a bed properly for moving

In knowing how to take a bed apart from a frame is vital in moving your home.  Follow these steps on how to properly disassemble the bed:

  • Step 1:  Completely strip down the bed of all bedding, pillows, etc.
  • Step 2:  Remove the mattresses from the base of the bed
  • Step 3:  Unscrew the headboard and the foot-board from the frame of the bed
  • Step 4:  Remove all slats from the side rails of the bed
  • Step 5:  Make sure to either put all screws back in the holes, or put in a small labeled ziplock bag then put it in a parts box, so it is easier to find at destination
  • Step 6:  Make sure all slats are together and wrap with tape inside out then right side in, to keep them together for moving day
  • Step 7:  Get a mattress bag for your mattress (which can be purchased from Brothers Moving & Storage and other retail locations) and bag it up, this protects it from dirt, and makes it easier to move

Assembling the bed at your new home

This is now the easier part of the moving tip, all you have to do is take the above steps and go in reverse.  With all the hardware in the parts box, they are easy to find.

While moving can be stressful, there are many things you can do to help you take some of that stress away.  I will give you several ideas, and even some that you can do with the kids.

Fun Activities for Kids

  • Give the kids markers and crayons to make the moving boxes decorative
  • Have the kids write a letter to Santa with new address to make sure he knows where they are moving too

  • Keep snacks on hand to keep the kids busy
