So you’re planning to move to a new place, and while you’re excited about it, the thought of storing some of your furniture could be daunting. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together some tips and tricks from our experienced movers at AtoB that will help you safely store your furniture.
- Tip 1: Clean your furniture thoroughly – Yes, this sounds like a no brainer, but many people take cleaning their furniture for granted before storing them. Use a soft cloth to wipe off all the food, dust and dirt from your furniture. Remember to properly clean food out of your fridge – we have seen and heard some horror stories!
- Tip 2: Elevate the items on a box: Some of the items – for example, your antique bookshelf, can’t really fit into a cardboard box. Leaving them simply on the floor for longer periods might not be a good idea as they can get scratched. Try placing them on boxes so that they’re elevated off the ground and protected from dirt and debris.
- Tip 3: Remove doorknobs and hinges: Remove all drawers from chests of drawers and chests, as well as any loose pieces such as doorknobs or hinges, so that they don’t get damaged during storage. It’s also a good idea to keep any plastic wraps or covers that may be on your furniture before storing it away.
- Tip 4: Ideal environment: Choose a place where there is no direct sunlight, and no rain can come in contact with your furniture for long periods of time. This will keep your furniture from being damaged by sunlight or moisture build-up over time, which could lead to mould growth in the future if left unchecked for too long!
- Tip 5: Ask professional movers: Consult with professional movers, like AtoB Furniture Removals, for expert advice on packing, moving, and storing your furniture. They can even help you find a proper and safe storage space if required!
