When it comes time to move, everyone seems to have a different idea on how to store their items. When you think about it, you will be packing your belongings twice. One time you will be packing it for the transportation process and then again inside your storage unit. So you should ensure that you are packing your belongings, especially your bedroom furniture correctly. Here are a few things to look out for when storing bedroom furniture.
Try to break down the bed in order to save space. You are not trying to set up your storage unit like you would your bedroom. If you can break down the bed and put it up against the wall you will be good to go. If you are not able to break it down to the point where it is all in separate pieces, position the bed to where you can place things on top of it and underneath it. It would be the best idea for you to put the bed in the corner so you are not taking up as much floor space. Not being able to break down your bed could lead to needing to get a bigger size. That bigger size is going to cost you more money.
Label all boxes so your clothes go straight to the bedroom if moving, or can be accessed easily if storing. With doing that, you can easily find what you are looking for when storing. Not everyone will be able to put up everything from their move quickly. Some people take weeks or months to get everything completely unpacked from their moved. Labeling boxes makes two processes a lot easier. One process is where the box will go after leaving the rental truck and the second is letting the movers know if they can stack things on it during the move. A difficult part of packing and moving knows if a box can handle the weight of another box on top of it. With labeling the box, you now know.
Remove all drawers from dressers and nightstands. This will make the furniture that you are lifting a lot easier to lift. If you are moving everything yourself, this will take significant strain of you. If you are having your move professionally done, then you can ask the movers whether or not they want the dressers and such out. Some movers will want them out while others feel moving it all together will decrease the amount of trips. So depending on who is the one moving the furniture, maybe the drawers will not need to come out. When they go into the moving truck, the drawers will go back into dresser anyway to save space.
Remove the furniture last, but store first. This is one of the best ideas because when you put the big pieces where they will go in the house, you can put little things on them. It is very hard to do the reverse of that. A lot of times the little things will get in the way and you will not be able to put the furniture where you want to. For many that is very counterproductive. There are people that will say they like to load the big furniture first for their own reasons. It will always come down to the person doing the moving.
