Coquitlam Movers Publish Steps to Best Move Chandeliers

Coquitlam movers publish bright ideas to make sure your chandelier gets safely from point A to point B

COQUITLAM, BC--(Marketwired - April 21, 2016) - Ferguson Moving & Storage, a Coquitlam moving company, has published a how-to guide for those preparing to move a chandelier. The blog, located on the company website, outlines the full series of steps from removal to installation. For more information, go to: http://www.fergusonmoving.com/blog/how-to-pack-move-a-chandelier-vancouver/

The best solution for actually moving a chandelier is to use a customized box big enough to leave 4-6 inches on each side. Some customized models come fully assembled with pieces completely fused together. Therefore, it's likely you'll be stuck with one hanging piece of glory that can't be set down or taken apart. However, if it can be disassembled, remove the glass pieces, and wrap them individually with something that will provide a 'cushion' during the move.

You should never remove a chandelier on your own if it's directly tied to your ceiling wires. This is a major safety hazard. Instead, hire a professional electrician to do it. If your chandelier or lights use a standard electrical plug, you can go ahead and remove, but make sure the light is off first!

Consult with an electrician in Vancouver before you move. Special wiring may need to be installed at your new place, especially if you want special switches such as a dimmer. It's also important to find the right spot to hang the chandelier, so you can ensure the installation is close to the necessary wires and whether the designated area can hold the weight. After all, some chandeliers are the size of a recliner!

Remember, it's important to let your moving company know in advance if you're planning to move a big, fragile item like a chandelier. They may have some special moving equipment that will help streamline organization and set-up. Ask if your mover has experience moving chandeliers or other ornate features before you get started!
