How to store furniture in a self storage unit

A storage unit can be a useful tool when you need to store larger items, such as furniture. When you are in the process of moving or will not need certain pieces of furniture for a time, it is important that you utilize a self-storage facility to protect your belongings so they are in pristine condition for future use. Climate controlled self-storage units can be great for wood and metal furniture that is susceptible to weathering or erosion. Normal wear and tear can also be avoided on cushioned furniture by following a few tips and tricks:

  • Disassemble any large furniture possible
  • Mat floor in plastic to keep out moisture
  • Clean furniture before packing
  • Use tape to mark an “X” on glass or mirror to prevent breaking
  • Prop open doors to appliances to encourage airflow

When your home doesn’t allow for a large, safe space to keep your valuable possessions, a self-storage facility can offer you peace of mind and confidence that your furniture will be in the quality condition that you left it in.
