How do I prepare my furniture for storage?
Cleaning your furniture items before they go into self-storage can help to keep them in a good condition. Avoid damp and mould damage by removing any dirt with warm, soapy water and only placing your furniture into storage once dry. Any upholstery items may need vacuuming, and infested woodwork should be correctly treated to avoid further damage and waxed to avoid cracks.
Wrapping furniture items in packing paper or bubble wrap will protect items made from wood, as well as mirrors and glass. If possible, remove the doors from cabinets or drawers and disassemble larger furniture items to avoid damage and save space in your storage unit.
How will I fit my furniture into a self-storage unit?
Even if you’ve chosen a large 200sqft+ self-storage unit, you should still make the most of the space. Try to dismantle large furniture pieces, such as bookcases and wardrobes, but remember to save all the loose screws or bolts for when it’s time to rebuild your furniture.
Bigger items, such as mattresses and sofas, should be stored vertically around the edge of The Self Storage Company storage unit to save valuable storage space for other items. Paintings and mirrors should also be stored vertically to avoid any long-term damage.
If you need any assistance fitting your furniture into a self-storage unit, or you need to up-size your storage solution, just ask our self-storage experts.
Where can I get storage supplies?
To make storing furniture and household items even easier, all of our TSSC locations boast a selection of onsite packing supplies available for click and collect. Discover dust covers for various pieces of furniture, including armchairs, mattresses, and sofas, and bubble wrap for more fragile items.
