Moving furniture involves more effort and extra care, because the furniture pieces tend to be large and cannot be placed in a box. If a part of furniture can be removed, like glass tops, table legs, bed frames, doors, shelves, etc., then remove it. Then carefully label which piece it belongs to. If possible, keep the assembly instruction books that came with the furniture to the piece. Keep all hardware in a small bag taped to the item.
