Storage Tips

How to Prep Your Furniture for Storage

Make sure to disassemble large furniture to maximize space in your storage unit. It’s also important to clean your furniture before placing it in storage, such as applying oils to the wood and vacuuming the upholstery. Clean the glass, apply rust protectant to metal furniture, and use polish on leather items to protect against drying and cracking.

The Benefits of Storage for Furniture

Get more space at home.

With bulky, unused furniture out of the way, you can make room for other things in your home. Storage units give you extra space for when you’re planning to move or needing to declutter your living area. If you’ve lost a spare room due to cluttered furniture, move everything into self storage, and turn your junk room into a useful space.

Climate control offers protection.

Climate control is a beneficial option for those looking to store their furniture. It keeps everything in the storage unit at a consistent temperature, protecting against high heat and freezing conditions. There’s no worry about the cold making wooden chairs brittle or heat damaging leather and upholstery.

A free truck comes in handy.

Nothing beats having access to a free truck when you’re moving things to a storage unit. Trying to pile everything in your own vehicle and taking multiple trips puts unnecessary stress on everyone involved. With our free truck offering, you can load everything up at once and deliver your furniture to the storage facility without hassle.
