Furniture Storage

What is furniture storage?

Furniture storage is similar to regular storage but instead of primarily being moving boxes, you are placing larger items like beds, tables, couches, etc in your storage unit.

Storing furniture keeps it safe until you are ready for it, allows you to hold on to sentimental pieces and gives you the opportunity to create extra space in your home.

Why do you need short term furniture storage?

There are many reasons you might need short-term furniture storage.
Here are a few:

  • You are relocating and need to store your items until you secure your new home.
  • You are going overseas for a few months and need to store your things until you return.
  • You have a bereavement in your family and need to store items with an emotional attachment until you decide what to do with them.
  • You’re downsizing but may need the furniture in the future.

What to pay attention to when choosing a furniture storage company?

Besides pricing, you should consider the services included in the price and the proximity of furniture storage companies to the area you are moving from and moving to.

When comparing furniture storage London, you need to know what you are getting for the price you are paying.

Is there a deposit required? Do I have to move the items myself (rent a moving van)? Do I need outside insurance?

Even things like the padlock to secure your items could come at an extra price. The cost of self-storage compared to full furniture removals will vary significantly.

You need to evaluate how much of the actual moving you want to do. For more information on this, read our full blog on how much does it cost to store furniture in 2020?
