At Parkers Removals, we have seen all sorts when it comes to moving furniture. Things like sofas sometimes can not be fully taken apart and therefore can be quite difficult to move from property to property. Other items are extremely delicate and need to be wrapped in a certain way so as not to be damaged whilst in transit. And then there are the larger pieces of furniture which may need to be dismantled before being moved. So, in order to help you store your furniture during a house removal, we have compiled some top tips.
Downsizing Your Home?
When you’re downsizing your home, you will find yourself with more furniture than you need and not enough space to put it all. If this is the case, then you may need to consider storing some of your furniture until you have a larger property to accommodate it. A self-storage unit is a great option for this as you can store your furniture for as long as you need and there is no time limit on how long you can keep your belongings.
When it comes to moving, self-storage can be a great option for furniture. Not only does it provide a safe and secure place for your belongings, but it can also be extremely convenient. There are some benefits of self-storage when it comes to furniture.
You have complete control over access to your belongings. This means that you can choose who has access to your unit and when they have access.
It is a cost-effective way to store your furniture. Self-storage units are much cheaper than hiring a removal company, and you can often get discounts if you hire a unit for a longer period of time.
Your furniture will be kept in pristine condition. Self-storage units are climate controlled, so your furniture will not be damaged by the weather.
Donate to Charity
If you have any furniture that you no longer want, or that you don’t have space for, then donating it to charity can be a great option. Not only will you be helping a good cause, but you will also be freeing up some space in your home.
There are many charities that accept furniture donations, and they will often come and collect the items from your home. This makes the process of donating furniture very easy and convenient.
The most important thing to remember when donating furniture is to make sure that it is in good condition. If any of the pieces are damaged, then the charity may not be able to accept them.
If you have any furniture that you no longer want, or that you don’t have space for, then selling them can be a great option. Not only will you be making some money, but you will also be freeing up some space in your home.
There are many ways to sell furniture, and the most effective way will depend on the type of furniture that you are selling. If you are selling a large piece of furniture, such as a sofa, then you may want to consider putting an advertisement on the Facebook marketplace.
If you are selling smaller pieces of furniture, such as chairs or tables, then you may want to consider hosting a garage sale. This is a great way to get rid of unwanted furniture quickly and easily.
Another option is to sell your furniture to a local second-hand store. This can be a good option if you don’t have the time to sell it yourself.
Store at a Family Member’s House
If you don’t have enough space to store your furniture at home, then you may want to consider storing it at a family member’s house who may have a spare room. This is a great option if you don’t want to hire a storage unit, and it is also free.
The key thing to remember when storing furniture at a family member’s house is to make sure that there is enough space. You don’t want to overload their house with furniture, as this will make it difficult for them to live comfortably.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you should ask your family member if they are okay with you storing your furniture at their house. They may not want to be responsible for your belongings, and this is something that you need to take into account.
