How Should I Store My Belongings?

For homeowners that are looking to downsize or are moving and need to temporary store their belongings, a U-Fill storage container is a great option for you. When it comes to storing your items, you want to be sure that you are storing them correctly. If not stored correctly, you run the risk of your belongings being ruined. Here are a few items that you want to be sure are stored correctly:

  • If not kept in a temperature controlled space, leather furniture can submit to deterioration. Because this type of furniture is expensive, you want to be sure it’s being stored properly.
  • To keep your wooden furniture looking good as new, you need a unit where the temperature won’t vary. This is especially true for antique pieces.
  • Larger appliances, like washers, dryers or refrigerators, that require an outlet are another type of item that needs to be properly stored. When temperatures fluctuate, mold can easily grow on these appliances and negatively affect the wiring.
  • Any collectible items, like coins, stamps, etc., should be stored in a unit where the temperature won’t affect them.

There are various other types of items that, if not stored correctly, will be ruined or damaged.
