Should You Move Furniture or Buy A New One

Should You Move Furniture or Buy A New One

There are a lot of decisions you need to make when planning for your home move. One of these is determining the fate of each piece of furniture you own. You will be torn between shipping your furniture or buying a new one. Since there is no definite answer to this question, it makes it more difficult for you to decide. You need to keep in mind that your answer will depend on several important factors you should take into consideration beforehand. If you are stuck on what to choose, we gathered some information to help you avoid regrettable decisions during your move.

1. Personal/ Sentimental Value 

Moving to a new home portrays a new beginning for most people which results in a complete change in themselves and their new homes. This gives a chance for people to replace outdated furniture with new ones. But before getting rid of your old furniture, you need to consider those pieces that have a special place in your heart such as your family heirloom or even those you have precious memories with. The furniture’s sentimental value greatly affects a person’s decision for keeping it.

We all know moving furniture can cost an arm and a leg, especially for those heavy and awkwardly shaped ones. Also, if you don’t have enough space to fit the old furniture into your new home, this will bring some conflicts to your decision. Yes, it’s hard to sell or leave behind furniture with personal value. The best option you have is to reach out to your family or close friends and offer them the furniture you can’t bring with you. This will give you peace of mind that your beloved pieces of furniture are properly taken care of and at the same time, you have the chance to see them again.

2. Furniture Cost

The price of the furniture is one of the factors people often take into account before moving. Let us face it, buying new furniture will also cost a fortune. But if you already own some expensive pieces of furniture which you are sure will last for a long time, then it’s worth keeping and bringing to your new home. Just remember to hire trusted Singapore movers to make sure that all your furniture will be properly moved. If you think you will be happier buying new pieces of furniture like a sofa since you think your old furniture is outdated, then you can. But remember to check if you will no going to go over your budget. Whatever your choice is, both moving the furniture and buying new ones will cost some amount of cash, you just need to know which choice is worth it.

3. Transportation Cost

The cost of moving some furniture depends on a lot of factors and one primary thing you need to take into consideration is the distance from your former home to the new one. If you are planning to move far from your current area, you need to think thoroughly if you would like to move some pieces of your furniture or not. This is because you might be spending a large amount of money on the transportation cost which may be greater than the cost of buying new ones. However, if you are just moving within a short distance, getting Singapore movers to move your furniture would be good and reasonable since it will surely cost less than buying new ones.

4. Complexity of Task

Some pieces of furniture are designed in a bulky and complicated manner. Because of the complexity of the furniture, it requires a lot of time to disassemble and reassemble. Even worse if the furniture cannot be disassembled and is heavy and awkwardly shaped it will surely add struggle during the move. If you don’t have enough knowledge and equipment to do a home move, this will definitely waste a lot of your time and at the same time, there is a high chance you might damage your furniture. And if you will be renting a moving truck/van, having to move those heavy and big pieces of furniture will certainly use up a lot of space. Plus, you will need to double-check if all furniture you plan to bring will fit in your new home. Make sure to weigh these things before making a decision. Also, take into consideration the physical labour and effort you and your movers will have to exert when moving these pieces of furniture.

Thanks to Faith movers for arranging a smooth moving experience even when I was overseas. The movers came on time and took care to wrap the items like wardrobe, table, mattress and frame. Even when the weather was hot, they got the items all packed and ready to move in 2 hours. Excellent job to the team!

I had the pleasure of working with Faith Relocation for my move, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the moment I contacted them, Linda was not only friendly but also incredibly responsive. She provided valuable advice that helped me plan my move effectively. When it came to the actual move, Faith Relocation demonstrated an exceptional work ethic. They were punctual, arriving exactly when they said they would. Their team handled my belongings with utmost care, ensuring that nothing was damaged during the process. Their professionalism and knowledge of the moving industry were evident throughout. Efficiency is another hallmark of Faith Relocation's service. They completed the move in a timely manner, wasting no time in getting the job done. I was particularly impressed with their punctuality and respectfulness throughout the entire process. Faith Relocation went above and beyond by providing essential moving supplies such as boxes and packing tape. They took extra precautions by shrink-wrapping items to protect them from potential damage in wet weather. The fact that they disassembled and reassembled my divan bed made the move so much easier for me. Additionally, the inclusion of a clothes rack for transporting my clothing was thoughtful and a modern touch of convenience. One of the standout aspects of Faith Relocation's service was their willingness to assist with the placement of items at my new destination. This made settling into my new home a much smoother process. Overall, my experience with Faith Relocation and Linda was exceptional. Their professionalism, efficiency, and attention to detail set them apart from other moving companies. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of a reliable and trustworthy moving company. Thank you, Faith Relocation, for making my move a stress-free and positive experience!
