again bid it appropriately. and work smarter not harder.Ok, I will concede that stuff like this makes sense. But you gotta see it first. Me and a helper spent 24 man hours on a $700 job cleaning one time because I had to move a ton of beds and dressers and sofas and all sorts of nonsense, and I decided that from then on, the policy was just "no" to furniture. Except like I said, a couch here and there, and if they help me out with tipping the bed, I occasionally do that too. But have you ever tried tabbing peoples heavy end tables when they are in the corner of a room with a bed on one side and walls on the other 2? It's damn near IMPOSSIBLE! And at 6'2", I've got some long arms.
99% of the time you can see where the legs or corner of the stands have left indentations in the carpet, put the foam blocks where the rear legs sit before putting the stand back then set the stand right on the blocks. Blocking up the front is usually fairly easy.But have you ever tried tabbing peoples heavy end tables when they are in the corner of a room with a bed on one side and walls on the other 2?

Dry vac with the carpet wand under the furniture before getting it wet.The thing about moving beds is you always need to vacuum were the bed was before HWE.
That is like you have to have a vacuum cleaner when moving beds and seemed like a lot of extra work.
Even moving large furniture, some times needs dry vacuuming under after you move items, and that takes time.
So... I had to vacuum the main area, move items, and vacuum again, Grrrrrr. So moving items can add hours to my job time.
And to charge accordingly to include moving items was not always fair to me or the customer. And the more I move, the more chance to damage things.
And I should of taken photos to help me remember where every thing was.
I could not dry vacuum under items even with a good power head that could go under items above 3 inches. The problem was near the base boards, that is were large wand pluging junk and other items was.Dry vac with the carpet wand under the furniture before getting it wet.
This is what we tend to do.Yes it might be an inconvenience and even to hear them ask , But you can aways suggest what I say"
Yes I can move the furniture but unfortunately I have a Minimum service fee of $250 for moving items or $175.00 hourly rate, for that rate it be best to hire a mover or personal labor assistant or a family member for a few bucks
