Will movers assemble and disassemble furniture?

This is one of the most common questions we see in the moving industry. Putting together and taking apart your furniture is no easy task and when you hire a full service moving company, you’d expect them to help with that. So…

Yes, Moving U will assemble and disassemble your furniture. In fact, some items like bed frames will need to be taken apart in order to move them safely. If your move is considered a local move movers will charge their normal rates.

Most furniture items in your home will not require disassembly. However, some items will. The most common items to be disassembled are bed frames, large dining room tables, bureau’s (dresser with mirror attached), and vanities. 

Should You Assemble & Disassemble Your Furniture Yourself Or Have The Movers Do It?

Sometimes, if you have assembled a piece of furniture in a room and did not move it into that room, it may not necessarily fit through the door. In those cases, your mover will decide how it will be disassembled and prepared for transport.

Sometimes it’s worth having your movers do this task and sometimes it’s not. It all depends on your specific move and if you need to save money. Ultimately is it your choice. Here are 3 insights to know if you can’t decide whether to have Moving U do it.

Disassembling furniture yourself will save you money. In fact, the more you are prepared for the moving day and the more small things you can do yourself, the more money you will save.  However, don’t overwhelm yourself, somethings are best left to the professionals.  

When moving locally, your movers will be able to disassemble and assemble your furniture, but your move is going to take longer, costing you a bit more. 

When moving long-distance moves can take several days.  However, the movers are responsible for assembling your furniture again placing it right where you want it.

What Items Should You Prepare or Disassembled Before Moving (that will save you time and money)?

  • Bed Frames – Most bed frames will need to be disassembled before moving. Movers will do it just right before the item is moved.
  • Bureau’s & Vanities – Any piece of furniture with a large mirror or glass attached to that can easily be removed and protected, this will likely be taken apart. If the glass is part of a door like on a china cabinet or glass coffee table, it might be wrapped intact. 
  • Large Dining Room Tables – Regular sized dining room tables may just be wrapped and protected as is. But, if you have a large, heavy dining room table, the movers will likely take off the legs and protect everything separately. This keeps the legs and dining room table from breaking during transit because it’s easier to load it in the truck if the legs are off.
  • Bookcases/Shelving Units – If your bookcases have glass shelves or the shelves come right off by lifting them, the movers will likely remove the shelves and wrap them separately.

Important Tip For Disassembly: Make sure you keep ALL screws and parts and place them in a sealable plastic bag and label them correctly.  Moving U will do this for you and keep them safe during transport of your items.

Movers do provide a few other services besides assembling and disassembling furniture. Here are a few other common things movers will do and will not do.


We can provide you with all the tape, boxes and padding materials you need to safely and securely pack all your belongings. All of our products are brand new, meaning they’re in perfect condition and can handle whatever you put in them.

Using old boxes saves money, but old, worn out boxes are prone to rips and tears that can spell the end for fragile items. Opting for brand new boxes and containers may be a bit more expensive, but when you think of the money you’ll save by avoiding broken plates or shattered picture frames, it’s clear that buying new is a better option.
