If you are taking your wardrobe, bed or any other large items of furniture with you, you have two options. The first option is to load the furniture onto the truck as it is in one piece. On the other hand, you have the option of dismantling your items and loading them onto the truck as individual pieces. If you do decide to dismantle your furniture, always ensure that nuts, screws and nails are kept safe and together. If you have instruction manuals, always keep them with you so that you know how to put the piece of furniture back together.
