Why It’s Important to Measure Your Doorways


One of the most frustrating things about moving is getting to your new home only to find out that your stuff won’t fit through the door. The height and width of every doorway is different, so it’s key to measure the doorways in your new home before moving day. Otherwise, you are going to have a pretty awful time. Why is it important to measure your doorways? Here are some top reasons from your Seattle full-service movers at Established Moving & Storage.


Make sure your items will fit

Why even bother moving your items if they won’t fit through the door of your new home? If you are purchasing new items for your home, or moving the furniture you already have, make sure you measure everything. You don’t want to waste money on furniture you’ll have to return, or worse, put in storage until you find a doorway it can fit into.


Save money on movers

Many movers charge a minimum of two hours sessions and then an additional fee for each hour that is added on additionally. If your movers are struggling to take apart furniture or fit your furniture through the doorway, that adds more time to the job which means your wallet will suffer. Save you and your movers the hassle by just measuring the doorways!


Avoid damaging your walls

Another way to make your move more of a hassle or more expensive is to damage the inside of your home because your furniture won’t fit through the doorway. Scraping up that beautiful clean wall or chipping the paint means that now you have to add interior repairs and decorating to your to-do list. Not ideal.


The easiest way to avoid this moving fail is just to measure your doorways. We have said it a few times throughout this blog, but it’s an easy thing to do that will save you a lot of stress and time. Just measure your doorways people!
