Furniture Pick-Up Services
Getting rid of old, unwanted furniture is a hassle. Whether you’re ditching a dining room table, tossing an old TV cabinet, or saying so long to a sagging, threadbare sofa, it takes time and effort to dispose of these pieces. Big items can be especially difficult to remove from your home, posing a high risk of injury and property damage. That’s why it’s typically much safer (and easier!) to hire a furniture pick-up service.
At College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving®, we know how dangerous it can be to remove large furniture items on your own. If you don’t take the right precautions, or if you use the wrong techniques, you are putting yourself and your home at risk.
But if you hire our furniture pick-up service, you don’t need to worry about these risks. Even better, you can skip the stress, sweat, and hassle of furniture removal and disposal.
THE RISKS OF DIY FURNITURE REMOVAL
When you’re moving or removing furniture, there are two important risks you need to worry about: personal injuries and property damage.
Countless Americans injure themselves every day by improperly lifting or moving large items. Some of the most common injuries suffered this way include:
- Pinched nerves
- Herniated discs
- Muscle tears
- Muscle strains
- Muscle hernias
- Ligament tears
- Ligament sprains
- Hand/foot fractures
The majority of moving injuries occur due to improper lifting techniques. This is one of the leading causes of back injuries, including pinched nerves, herniated discs, and muscle sprains. In many cases, these injuries result in lifelong problems, such as chronic back pain or increased risk of additional back injuries.
While other injuries are less common, some can be just as, or even more severe. If someone loses their grip or misjudges their footing, a heavy piece of furniture can result in a devastating injury, especially when moving furniture items up or down stairways.
Another concern when removing furniture is property damage. In the process of moving or removing furniture from your home, it is easy to damage other items in your home.
In most cases, the damage is manageable: small dents, minor scrapes, chipped paint. But cases of moderate to severe damage are not uncommon. A heavy or unwieldy piece of furniture can easily put holes in drywall, shatter panes of glass, crack floor tiles, mar hardwood flooring, or inflict damage on nearby items.
Have a piece of furniture you need out of your home? Worried about injuring yourself or damaging your property? There’s an easy way to avoid injury and damage when removing furniture: choose our licensed and qualified furniture pick-up service.
