Will the movers disassemble and reassemble my furniture?

Will the movers disassemble and reassemble my furniture?Our goal is to make your move, whether its a local move or a cross country move as simple and easy as possible.  So whenever possible we will take apart your larger bulky furniture.  Traditional beds with headboard, footboard and side rails are no problem for us.  We can also take apart your dining room tables and sectional couches and most desks.  

Many customers ask us if there are any tips to save time or money on the move.  One way to do so is to have these items taken apart in advance.  We have absolutely no problem taking these items apart for you, but it does take time.  Typically our estimates will include the time to break down and reassemble these furniture items.

There are some items that we are unable to break down or reassemble for liability reasons.  We do however work with 3rd party experts that we can contract on your behalf.  Additional charges will apply.

We are unable to breakdown or reassembly cribs under any circumstances.

We can not break down some bunk beds.  If the bunk beds is a very simple bed on top of another bed, that is totally fine.  If the bunk bed is an elaborate system with built in stairs, landings or storage, we will be unable to assist you.

Beds with intricate storage systems or sleep number / craftmatic beds likely will require a 3rd party specialist.  We are experts in all things moving, but we do not always have a trained and skilled technician to handle more advanced breakdowns.  Consult with your local office on specific furniture policies.

We are unable to breakdown exercise equipment, so if your elliptical or treadmill must be broken down to get in or out of either location, please let us know in advance so we can get a price for 3rd party solutions.

We strongly prefer that garage / basement storage racks are broken down prior to our arrival.  We can manage this for you, but certain style can take quite a bit of time.  We would prefer to focus on the heavy lifting and not have to charge your for the time spent breakdown each shelf.

We can not break down ikea style wardrobes.  Often times these are too large to fit down stairwells.  These larger armoires / wardrobes are not designed to be broken down after initial assembly. There are a lot of hardware pieces to these and they often get lost.  They also lose structural stability when broken down again and again.  We can do our best to maneuver these pieces in and out, but please understand that it may not be possible to remove them from your current home while in tact.

If you are going to break down any furniture yourself to save time, we strongly recommend placing all hardware in a ziploc bag for safe transit.  Please keep in mind that it is up to the crew leader discretion on reassembling any furniture that we did not dismantle ourselves.  

We are happy to move appliances for you, but we cannot disconnect any live electrical wiring or any plumbing / gas lines.  Please make sure all appliances are disconnected 24 hours in advance to allow for any defrosting as well.  

If you need any assistance with rare or unique items like pinball machines or soda machines, please let us know well in advance so we have an opportunity to develop a game plan and contract any third parties.

    We had the most pleasant experience with Suburban Solutions. Our team was professional and handled all our stuff with care. They wrapped all our furniture completely in moving blankets and taped them all around. All our neighbors said they never saw a moving company wrap furniture like that and were impressed. Our on site manager (who was there from start... read more

    5 star ratingWe were moving a 2 bedroom + apartment from Ardmore, PA (suburban Philadelphia) to southern Sussex Cty, DE (Bethany area) with an intermediate stop at our storage unit. We had heard a number of moving company horror stories so we were a bit apprehensive. From our first contact by phone with Suburban Solutions, things could not have gone more smoothly.... read more

    I hate moving. Dread it. Don't like it. Run from it. My wife and I moved our family of four from Philly to the suburbs in mid-August 2021. It was difficult to hire movers. Suburban Solutions was the fourth company I called and they had availability. So I booked them. I was... read more

  • 5 star ratingSuburban did an outstanding job with a recent pickup and delivery of antique furniture to our house, including moving existing furniture to make room. Communication with the manager about setting up the move was very good, and the crew was careful, efficient, and responsive to all our directions. I will definitely use them again.

    The entire process, from requesting a quote to the actual move, was so easy and professional, thanks to Suburban Solutions' wonderful customer service, sales team, and moving crew. The crew, managed by “Q”, was so professional, efficient, and thoughtful of my personal items, and I can’t thank them enough for their service. They eased my stress and anxiety about... read more

    This is my second move with Suburban Solutions and I can't say enough good things about them as a company. They communicated prior to the move and had me set up for success.

    On the day of the move, there were text alerts prior to my teams arrival that kept me in the loop. My movers Chuck and Ashford arrived on...

    We used both packing and moving service from South Philadelphia (Point Breeze) to Wallingford, PA. We were really happy with the guys, all of whom were respectful to us and courteous with our things. My wife was especially impressed by how vocal the younger team members were about wanting to learn the right way to do things. Everyone involved... read more

    Can't say enough about this company. Our crew of Vez (spelling might be wrong there), Mike and Mikey were top notch. They were prompt, careful, friendly, and efficient with the move. I've never had close to this pleasant of an experience with movers before, and I'll never use another moving company again. Will absolutely recommend to my friends and family,... read more
