Hi, thanks so much for coming to Movers.com with your question about the weight of your dresser.
If you're planning a DIY move, big pieces of furniture like a solid wood dresser can be extremely difficult, not to mention dangerous, to move by yourself. Before you even attempt it, be sure you have the essential tools you’ll need to move the dresser properly (like moving straps and a dolly). Though different types of wood will result in different weights, solid wood dressers are much heavier than anything made with composite materials, and will likely be well over 200 pounds.
So, if you're planning to move your entire bedroom set, you may want to reconsider handling it by yourself.
