Despite our unmatched strength and super teamwork skills, there are some things that even Little Guys can’t move without taking apart.
Items like beds, mirrored dressers, 2-pieces cabinets, recliners, and cribs are safer and simpler to move when they are first disassembled. We want to complete your move as efficiently as possible, without damaging a single thing. Being able to disassemble items on-site helps us do our job well.
But of course, disassembly is only the first step. Once an item has been moved, we re-assemble it in its new location. You didn’t think we’d leave you hanging, did you?
There are a few important things to know about disassembly and reassembly. First, it goes without saying that we won’t reassemble anything that we didn’t personally disassemble. Sorry, we can’t help you with that Ikea desk you’ve been battling for two weeks! We want to avoid confusion and incorrect reassembly at all costs, so we have a very particular method we follow.
Part of our method includes having the same Crew Leader and Crew disassemble and reassemble an item. Because they are already familiar with the item, things go much smoother. Even when we’re doing an overnight or multiple day move, we still ensure that the majority of the crew stays the same.
Labeling is also a major part of the process. We label all of the pieces and hardware involved. We have hardware bags with us for the different kinds of items we may encounter, and we make sure that all parts are kept together and organized.
What items do we disassemble and reassemble? Here’s a little cheat sheet:
- All sizes of beds, including headboards, footboards, and side rails
- Electric, adjustable, memory foam, and sleep number beds
- Dressers and vanities with mirrors
- Any item with a removable top (glass, marble, granite, etc.)
- 2-piece buffets, china cabinets, and armoires
- Sofas with reclining ends, including electric
- Recliners, including electric
- Cribs and changing tables
- Desks that are L-shaped, have a hutch or bookshelf attached, or have multiple pieces
- Refrigerators (removing handles and doors, etc.)
- Large dining tables that need legs removed
Here are items that we won’t assemble:
- Anything we didn’t disassemble
- Prefabricated boxed furniture
- We do not disconnect or reconnect water lines
Don’t see your item on either of these lists? Contact us and we’ll let you know if we can help with assembly.
The best part of all of this? Little Guys Movers includes disassembly and reassembly in our flat rate pricing. We want to make moving as simple for you as possible, and we don’t think you should have to pay a premium to have your things come to your new home intact.
