Tips on Moving a Full Recreation Room

Optimizing recreation room moving A dream that many people might have once they move into their new Vancouver homes is to create the perfect recreation room. Something complete with a pool table, a TV, gaming consoles, fusball, a grand piano — the works! Often, one of the biggest obstacles to making that happen is the actual act of recreation room moving. We’ve covered the process of moving a pool table in a past blog post, as well as how to move a piano, but what about the other stuff? We decided we’d tackle that today. How to move media cabinets safely and more easily One of the main centrepieces of any recreational room will be the entertainment system. The TV, stereo, video game console and Blu Ray player are often among the most used pieces of equipment and will need a tasteful and accessible place to stay. For this, we recommend you’d get a media cabinet. These pieces of furniture are often capable of holding all the above items and more, and can be quite helpful in creating an ergonomic storage space. You can usually find one in your local furniture store. Once you’ve picked out a cabinet you like, you’ll have to find a way to move it. Here are some ways you can make recreation room moving easier in this context. Take it apart, then put it back together — As much as possible, try to break down the media cabinet into its component parts. Take out the shelving to reduce weight. If you are moving a media cabinet that already has items in it, empty it out first....

Make sure you know the answers to these questions before making a final decision: How often will you be using the exhibit? If your exhibit travels from show to show, you should consider using crates. If, however, your exhibit only goes out once or twice a year, it may not be worth the extra cost to have it containerized. Will the exhibit be placed in storage for any length of time? If the answer is yes, containerizing the exhibit might be best. If un-crated, your exhibit can get dirty, or worse,...

How to move a piano

How to move a piano A piano can make a strong grand noise, but it all depends on the intricate details on the inside.  Moving a piano, therefore means preserving all its beautiful sound-making parts, not to mention its royal appearance. Different types of pianos require mildly different steps, but the precautions are roughly the same for the large, small, upright and three-legged alike.  If moving a piano is part of a larger household move, you’ll have more planning to do, and more to consider about the logistics of the move in conjunction with everything else you’re transporting.  However, if the piano move is part of a single sale, or the only item requiring your attention, you should find things a lot less stressful. Firstly, of course, you’ll need to close down the lids and moving parts and seal them shut.  Although the insides are the most important, you need to protect the outside of the piano.  The top finish on the instrument can easily be scratched and scuffed while moving, even when wrapped in blankets (because of the constant shifting and rubbing).  To protect the surface, you’ll need to invest in a lot of saran wrap.  That’s right, wrap, wrap, wrap, all around! Second, you’ll need to protect the piano from vibrations, bumps and thumps.  There are special moving supplies to help you do this.  For example, moving blankets help protect furniture, and moving pads prevent damage in the truck when objects bang against each other (an inevitable part of moving).  When you’ve got a layer of blanket covering the layer of saran wrap, tie down the blanket...
