Disorganization and excess (don’t forget your kids)
Every drawer must be emptied out before the move, or our movers would have to do that themselves. The furniture (especially Ikea) is not meant to be transported with the stuff inside, as it might break due to additional weight. Plus, pretty often movers would have to flip the dresser or a cabinet on the side or place it upside down while stacking the truck, which will create havoc inside every flipped drawer and will result in broken, missing items. – BestMoversLeague
