Should we empty the dresser drawers?


It is best to empty the drawers because there will be a lot of stress on the drawers while moving. As well, for smaller items, like jewelry, change, picture frames, papers, or other things like that, it’s best to empty the drawer as sometimes we need to tip a dresser on end and this causes all those things to fall out the bottom of the dresser. If your dresser is well built and does not need to go up or down any flights of stairs, it is acceptable to leave clothing only in the drawers, but in general we prefer the drawers to be empty, particularly on heavier larger units.
