Storing furniture tips to help you save time and money. This Blog post is about our best storing furniture tips to ensure you make the right decision.
When you need to move your furniture into storage for a short time or long time, use a storage unit larger than you need.
Ideally try to rent a storage unit with easy access for the moving truck. This will ensure the cost of the moving will be less.
The cost of the storage unit might be higher. However it will be much faster for the unloading and loading of the moving truck.
For long term storage hire, opt for a quality storage facility.
Make sure you use a unit that is only just big enough to fit all of your furniture.
The cartage costs will be a little higher but in the long run the storage costs will be lower and the overall cost less.
Some clients like to leave isles in their storage units to enable easy access to all of their belongings.
Smart Express will be very happy to help with this. More storage space will be advised for a larger storage unit.
If you are doing your own packing for storage, make sure you use strong, good quality boxes.
Over time, poor quality boxes will lose their rigidity and damage the contents of the box.
We sell good quality boxes online that are suitable for this purpose.
Chip boxes and other lightweight construction boxes that have been designed for light loads are not suitable.
Have available a good quantity of blankets and linen that can be placed over furniture to protect it while it is in storage.
If you do not have them, we can supply blankets or wrap furniture for you at some additional cost.
We can discuss these issues with you when we do your free onsite quote.
