Moving Furniture To A New Home Or Self-Storage



Moving furniture to a new home or a self storage unit is a job that takes more than one person and some preparation. With that in mind, here are some tips and tricks from professional removers to help you make the move easier and trouble free.

Take the time to measure your largest furniture items, like beds, wardrobes and sofas to ensure you can fit them in the storage space you have rented or through the doors in your new home. Remember to measure the stairs because narrow stairs with a tight turn may stop you manhandling that huge bed in to the room.

If your furniture does not fit, then dismantle the big items before the move day.

Size and shape makes a sofa difficult to move. Professional movers neatly remove the material on the base o9f the sofa and feel inside the arms. Often they are bolted to the frame and can be removed with a spanner. The same goes for bulky armchairs.

Remove cushions and loose covers for transportation and storage. Any covering that cannot be removed needs protecting with a removal blanket or thick plastic to avoid hand prints, scuffs and scrapes.

Tables and chairs, especially those with glass, marble or granite tables should be dismantled with the top separated, wrapped and marked with a fragile sticker. Wood tables need careful handling and protection to stop scratches and warps.

Wrap table and chair legs with bubble wrap and then tape cardboard around the padding.

Fill up any dresser or chest drawers with small, light or fragile items cushioned in tissue or bubble wrap. Tape plastic wrap around the drawers so nothing can fall out when they are lifted. Do not over fill drawers as the weight makes lifting difficult. Carry dressers and chests with drawers taken out as they are a lot lighter. Protect the frame with plastic bubble wrap or a blanket to look after the finish.

Dismantle a bed frame to make moving easier. If you have a divan bed, take out the under bed drawers to lighten the task. Mattresses should be wrapped in a mattress cover or heavy plastic, like a sofa.

Benefits Of Self-Storage For Businesses



Self-storage facilities are a great solution for your personal belongings, but they also work quite well for businesses. Companies can operate more cost-effectively if they only keep what they need in the work area. Using storage units is an effective logistics solution, allowing a business to cut back on necessary office space, in order to save money. Using self-storage units, a business can keep everything not needed in day-to-day business in one place that has easy access.

Self-Storage Can Replace Warehousing Costs

Businesses may use cheap storage options to free up warehouse and office space. If a company does not have a large warehouse, this is a more economical way to store excess merchandise. Storage units can also be used for paper files and records. Businesses commonly use storage for:

  • Storing items not needed everyday
  • Archiving files, documents and other paperwork
  • Storing new or old stock
  • Storing excess equipment and office furniture
  • Storing overstocked items
  • Storing files and equipment during moves
  • Storing office supplies bought in bulk, to save money

Businesses and Paperwork

For offices that deal with a great deal of paperwork, a self-storage unit is the perfect place to securely store files not needed in the office. They can still be comfortably and easily retrieved, if they are needed.

Government regulations require that some businesses keep their records for a period of years. Keeping that many records on-site could overwhelm your office, which is why business managers rent storage units.

Businesses that Need Off-Site Storage

There are various business types that need storage. They include:
  • Accountants
  • Attorneys
  • Physicians
  • Architects
  • Financial Advisors

Business storage can be used in the same ways as personal storage. You will choose the proper sized unit for your needs and transport the items to store, unpacking them and storing them in your unit. It's important to stack your items neatly, so that they can be retrieved if they are needed.
Storage facilities may provide additional services geared to businesses, since they may store more items than personal households do. Speak with the manager of the self-storage facility you are thinking of using, to ensure that their rates are competitive.

Why Self-Storage?

Some business people do not see all the benefits of storing documents or equipment off-site, to free up space in the office. Storing files and documents in a central location will make them easier to access, especially if you have offices in more than one area. You will have a space that is secure in which to store these documents. There are many different sizes of units, which can be used as business or office libraries, depending on the needs of your business.
