We are unable to breakdown exercise equipment, so if your elliptical or treadmill must be broken down to get in or out of either location, please let us know in advance so we can get a price for 3rd party solutions.
We strongly prefer that garage / basement storage racks are broken down prior to our arrival. We can manage this for you, but certain style can take quite a bit of time. We would prefer to focus on the heavy lifting and not have to charge your for the time spent breakdown each shelf.
We can not break down ikea style wardrobes. Often times these are too large to fit down stairwells. These larger armoires / wardrobes are not designed to be broken down after initial assembly. There are a lot of hardware pieces to these and they often get lost. They also lose structural stability when broken down again and again. We can do our best to maneuver these pieces in and out, but please understand that it may not be possible to remove them from your current home while in tact.
If you are going to break down any furniture yourself to save time, we strongly recommend placing all hardware in a ziploc bag for safe transit. Please keep in mind that it is up to the crew leader discretion on reassembling any furniture that we did not dismantle ourselves.
