Furniture Storage Tips
- Measure your furniture
Many people do not realize how much space their furniture takes up. Measure every piece prior to making a furniture storage plan. Note the length, width, and height of each piece. Be sure to consider the additional space that may be taken up by any protective padding or covering that you intend to leave in place while furniture is in storage (such as padding used to protect antique heirlooms). If you plan to store furniture in pieces, measure after taking it apart so that you know the true dimensions of the space that you will need for furniture storage.
- Plan to use a drive-up unit or one that is accessible via elevator.
This will make your move faster and easier, saving you money if you are hiring professional movers, and protecting your health if you are moving furniture yourself.
- Consider leaving extra space in your unit.
Think about how you will move around in the unit and find things if necessary, and plan to leave enough space for a person to move around in the unit after it is fully packed with furniture. Be sure to leave enough space for any boxes or other items that you may be storing along with your furniture.
- Make a moving plan.
Consider which pieces you are likely to need to remove from storage first. If possible, store furniture in reverse order, moving first the furniture that you will want to remove last. Then store the furniture that you plan to remove from storage first at the end so that those items will be next to the door.
- Protect furniture during the move.
Disassemble each piece as much as you can prior to moving furniture. Place any screws, washers, legs, feet, or other small pieces of furniture together in a bag or small box, if possible. Label the bag or box so that you will remember which set of hardware goes with which piece of furniture. Be careful not to tape bags of hardware to packing materials that you plan to throw away after the move, such as sheets of cardboard or bubble wrap. Cover all your furniture during the move, using materials that will cushion any blows or shocks the furniture may receive. Pay special attention to corners of tables and to any other pieces of furniture that might stick out.
