Is It Worth it To Move My Furniture?

When planning a move, especially long distances, you might be wondering if it’s worth it to bring your furniture along with you, or simply buy new furniture once you’re out there. It all depends on the type of furniture and if it’s an investment that will pay off in the long run. We’ll first take a look at some factors that could be useful to know.

Choosing What Should Stay

Now that we know moving is inevitable, it’s important to consider what type of furniture you want to bring along during the move. With furniture such as TVs and entertainment units, it’s better to sell and rebuy, because there is such a high demand for these things and people are always buying and selling them, it’s much easier to sell and rebuy. You also don’t risk damaging these expensive electronics in the move. However, if you own high quality furniture that holds its value, like Persian rugs for example, chances are this investment will either hold up and maintain its resale value or even appreciate wherever you go.

Do You Have Time To Sell Your Current Furniture?

The main drawback to moving furniture is that you have to sell your current pieces before being able to buy new items in your destination city. Buying and selling furniture can be a lot of work, especially if you don’t get the price you want for your current piece(s). There are some options for this though. You could use online or newspaper classifieds, but also keep in mind that these options usually take time and patience to find the right buyer. If you’re willing to hire a professional mover of fine antique home furnishings, they may be able to help sell any unwanted pieces while on route during the move itself! With so many places to buy furniture online these days and have it shipped directly to your home as you move in, which eliminates the need to move it.

Sentimental Value

This is also another factor to consider, which relates back to investing in high quality pieces. If you have family heirlooms or sentimental value furniture, chances are it is an investment that will pay off. If this is the case, then you should definitely bring the items with you on your next move!
