How do you remove a bed?
August 31, 2007 5:03PM
Almost any bed can be disassembled, and taking it apart is by far the easiest way to remove it from a room. After you remove the mattress and box spring, you can usually disassemble the bed into three main components: headboard, footboard, and frame. These are the steps: # Take off the mattress and remove it or stand it up against a wall, out of the way. # Lift off the box spring and get it out of the way also. # You need a helper for taking the bed apart:
a. You may be able to separate the frame from the headboard and footboard simply by lifting it; it's often just held together with metal fingers on the frame extending into slots on the headboard and footboard. If you don't see screws or bolts holding things together, have your helper hold one bed end while you lift that end of the frame. A hammer may help free the joint. When loose, set the end board aside, rest the frame end on the floor, and do the other end.
b. If you see screws or bolts holding the frame to the end boards, have your helper hold one bed end while you undo the fasteners and separate the parts. Then set the end board aside, rest the frame end on the floor, and do the other end. # Keeping any loose parts together, perhaps in a bag taped to the frame, carry the bed out in pieces with the assistance of your helper.
