3 Ways to Pack Furniture in Your Storage Unit, San Marcos, Texas

Whether you’re moving into a new property or planning a home remodeling project, you may need a storage solution for your extra furniture. A storage unit is an excellent way to keep your belongings safe until you can put them in your home again. However, before you rent the moving truck, it’s important to prepare your furniture for long-term storage so they stay protected and retain their good condition.

3 Tips for Storing Furniture in a Storage Unit

1. Disassemble the Furniture if Possible

Before moving your furniture, you may have to disassemble the pieces first. Remove the legs from your tables, take out any drawers from your dresser, and separate the planks of the bedframe if possible.

2. Use a Protective Cover

Using a cover will protect your furnishings from the elements in both transport and storage. Bubble wrap is an effective option for wrapping the legs of a table or smaller, delicate pieces like glassware or vases. Use blankets and sheets to cover the larger furniture pieces.

To save money, you should maximize the space in your unit so you can fit all your furniture. Make sure to leave enough room between the items to lower the risk of accidental damage and to allow air to circulate throughout the storage unit.
