How Do I Prepare for Long-Term Storage?
Storing items for the long-term is a bit different than temporary storage solutions. You have to prepare differently to ensure that the items you place in storage will remain safe and damage-free without costing you a small fortune. So, how do you prepare for long-term storage?
- Store items in plastic boxes. When storing items for the long-term, it’s best to use plastic instead of cardboard. Cardboard has a tendency to wear over time, and fails to keep items safe from dirt, debris, and creatures.
- Label everything. Years from now, the chance you are going to remember what you placed in every box is unlikely. It’s encouraged to label every box with a date and its contents. Keeping an inventory sheet of every item in each box is also ideal.
- Disassemble furniture. Taking things apart will save you space in your storage unit, and allow you to get more for your money. Tables, chairs, beds, and more can be disassembled and stored accordingly.
- Pack smart. Even if you are storing long-term, there are some items you’ll need to retrieve before others. Pack items you know you’ll need sooner near the front of your storage unit. Pile lighter items on top, and always wrap breakable items with care.
- Consider a climate controlled storage unit. Some items that you may choose to store for the long-term could be sensitive to extreme temperatures. Photographs, records, and more can yellow, warp, or fade in tough conditions, so consider a climate controlled unit to ensure safety!
