    Tricks for perfect furniture storage

    In order to save on storage costs, you should plan and structure the storage unit well:

    • When storing furniture, it is possible to stack the moving boxes and the furniture, thus creating more storage space.
    • One should avoid placing the stored goods directly against the wall. This will ensure good ventilation in the storage room and prevent the items from starting to mold.
    • When storing, you can use the whole height, which means that the furniture can be placed on edge.
    • The objects that you do not use much are best to store in the back.
    • It is advisable to make an inventory list or site plan so that you know where items or moving boxes are located. This again provides an overview of the belongings, even during storage.
