Packing and Moving Dressers

Get a Free Moving Estimate

    Our move consultants are frequently asked if dresser drawers need to be emptied before a move. Since this is such a popular question, we thought we’d share the answer here!

    The good news is dressers do NOT need to be emptied of clothes and durable items; however, we ask that spillables and breakables be removed from the drawers before the move. It’s important to keep in mind that you don’t want to leave anything too heavy in the dresser. The reason being, we want to make sure the dresser is stout enough to handle the weight without bending or springing out of align.

    You might be wondering how dressers are moved without the contents spilling out all over the truck. It’s simple! Our movers wrap the dressers in soft padding so the drawers don’t fall out and your items remain safely secured! Please note, some customers have taped their dresser drawers shut. Doing so is not necessary and the tape can ruin the finish of the furniture.

    From initial reservation to the long-term storage of our possessions to the final moving day we have been extremely pleased with the professionalism, courtesy and customer service we've experienced. This is why we return to Beltway each time.

    Bill was excellent in both estimating and explaining the move, which entailed working with multiple people and delivery points. Follow up from the office was very professional, questions and concerns were answered promptly, and paperwork was thorough and easy to understand. Beltway is clearly a team operation, and a winning one at that. I would absolutely use Beltway again, and especially commend Caesar, Rene, and crew. I chose Beltway based on the promises made, and from start to finish, they did everything they said they would, and more. The team clearly understands the moving process from both a psychological and logistical standpoint

    Moving is always a tough experience but working with the crew was an absolute delight. The crew made the move easy, nothing was too much trouble and they completed every request with good humor and excellent customer service
