It's important to know whether or not your carpet installers will move furniture before your project. We recommend asking this question before scheduling your installation because the answer may vary. There are cases where a carpet installer will include the cost of moving furniture in your quote, and other times the installer may not include it, and it is always better to be sure to be on the same page with your flooring installer before the day of your carpet installation.
