  1. Remove all of the cushions and the sitting pads from the lounge set. Store these away in a different location and move them separately, while not on the couch set.
  2. Remove the legs of the couches if possible. This will allow the set to be manoeuvred around easily in tight spaces. If it is too heavy, then removing the legs will also help with the set being put up on dollys to move around.
  3. Clean the whole set. This will allow for the set to feel new with a fresh smell when it gets to your new home.
  4. After the couch has been cleaned, all you are left to do is cover it up using cardboard, bubble wrap and shrink wrap. This will help it stay protected from dust, debris, moisture, and scratches during transport.
  5. After you have covered the couch set properly, and the removalists arrive, you can also insist they use an additional layer of moving blankets to act as another layer of protection for your expensive investment.
