Although moving is an exciting process, it can be very stressful to get everything packed up and ready to go. Fortunately, with enough early preparation, you can be all set by moving day. Preparing furniture for a move is one of the trickiest parts because these items are too large to pack into boxes.
It’s especially tricky when you’re trying to move a dresser with loose or unsecured drawers. Since the professionals at Georgetown Moving and Storage Company aim to make your move as easy and safe as possible, we’ve created this guide to help you pack and move your dresser in a way that will keep the drawers from falling out.

Follow these tips to prepare your dresser before the movers arrive:
The only time we would suggest removing the drawers from your dresser is if the cumulative weight of the drawers makes a large, high-end dresser too heavy to carry. This also gives you the opportunity to use the drawers as makeshift boxes, saving you from emptying their contents into boxes and refilling the dresser after the move. This could be a convenient option if you’re relocating only a short distance.
Also, if you do end up removing the drawers from your dresser, make sure you don’t put full drawers back in the dresser once you get out to the moving truck. This could put excessive pressure on the gliders. Instead, wrap the drawers with plastic to keep the contents inside and place the dresser drawers in your car.
