Whether you're moving yourself or hiring a professional moving company, things can arrived damaged. I speak from experience: When we bought our house my husband and I searched endlessly for the perfect dining room set and finally found it, only to have one of the chairs arrive broken.

If you're moving yourself to your next home, here are some tips from the pros on how to avoid damaging your large household items.
