PROPER STORAGE OF FURNITURE

At Big Item Storage, our units aren’t just for your big vehicles. Whether you are moving to a new place or need to temporarily store your household items, our storage units are perfect for furniture. For both short- and long-term use, your items are safe with us! Here are a few tips to help make storing your furniture painless.

A good thing to do prior to storing furniture is to disassemble anything that can be taken apart. It’s much easier to store your things with everything broken down into small components. You can place all the loose screws and other hardware in baggies labeled for their appropriate item. You should also cover up your items with loose cloth or blankets. Don’t wrap it completely in plastic, as that can trap moisture and ruin your items.

You should also thoroughly clean all your items before storing them. This prevents nasty smells, mold, and the like. It also protects your items so they can come out of storage looking just as great as they did when they went in.

One last thing is to avoid overstuffing the unit. Organize your unit to the smallest detail to ensure nothing gets broken from bad placement. You’ll also want to make sure you leave a small amount of room in between items to allow for air to circulate throughout the unit. These gaps in between items also allow for easier storage access. If the unit is near full, stop and check the efficiency of your organization. Know when to stop and consider more storage options.
