7 Efficient Tips To Remember For Furniture Storage

You may think storing furniture is an easy process. If you think it's as simple as dropping off your bed, couch or table at the storage unit facility and coming back when it's time to retrieve your item, hold your horses because you might end up running the risk of ruining your furniture in the long run.

When you're ready to store your furniture, whether it's only for a short time or you plan on keeping the pieces for a long time, a little preparation goes a long way. Before putting them in the mobile storage box, there are things you can do to make the storing process easy and efficient and ensure that your furniture remains safe, dry, and undamaged.

One way to get started with a fresh take on furniture storage is to check out the 7 efficient tips listed below. They are easy to follow and each one will help make your life easier.

Clean All Your Furniture Before Storage

The first rule is to make sure you clean all your furniture before storing them in the mobile storage box. Avoid using soap and water, if possible, as this may damage the finish. Use an upholstery cleaner or damp cloth to remove dirt and get rid of odours without harming the furniture. It will also prolong the life of your furniture because you are less likely to have any spills or messes.

Disassemble or Break Down What You Can

You can disassemble some of your furniture pieces to save space before storing them in the mobile storage box. If you plan to store items that originated in pieces, such as a bed, dining tables or bookshelves, break them down to maximise the space of the storage container. However, make sure to keep all of the screws and bolts in one place, may it be a plastic bag or a small box.

Pack Your Furniture Parts Separately

Keeping your expensive and big furniture in storage needs more than just a storage space; it also should be kept safe and secured in the right box. And as opposed to mixing smaller items in with larger ones, you will thank yourself later for spending the extra time to separate and pack the items when it is time to move them into storage. Label the boxes correctly, so it's easier to know which items need to be handled with extra care.

Wrap Fragile Pieces With Bubble Wraps

Fragile furniture pieces such as dressers, mirrors, chairs and desks that are more sensitive to contact with other objects are best wrapped with the right packing materials. Invest in bubble wrap or padding to encase edges and corners to avoid bumps, shocks and vibrations and prevent your fragile items from being damaged. You can also use fabrics like carpets or blankets to cover the big furniture pieces.

Load With Heavier Items First

Maximizing the space in the storage of furniture is not a tricky task at all if you know some efficient storage tips. To make things inside the mobile storage box more organised, you can start placing the heavier items first and layer the lighter ones on top. Remember not to stack furniture pieces too high to avoid damage, considering that the mobile storage box will be moved back to the storage facility.

Book a Mobile Storage Hire Service

A mobile storage hire service can be an invaluable resource for storing furniture and is an easy way to store large and fragile furniture pieces with ease and confidence. You also don’t have to worry about making a mess of your new home or having to drive a loaded truck to the storage facility because your mobile storage provider can do it for you. However, it is important to choose a provider that can guarantee the safety and security of your furniture.

Choose the Right Mobile Storage Box

Another thing to consider is the right size of your mobile storage box. The size will not only affect the safety of your belongings but it will also be limited to what you can store in there. If you hire too small of a storage container, you will find that many things don't fit and so you will have to hire a second one, but if you hire one that’s too big, then you run the risk of leaving space unused inside and having wasted money on paying for more space than what is needed.

Furniture storage sometimes provides a little bit of trouble for people, but you really don't have to worry if you're prepared from the start. These tips will allow you to store your furniture with confidence that it will be ready for use when you take it out of storage. And if you have a trusted, reliable and efficient mobile storage hire service provider, things will be much easier for you.
