Where Do You Store Furniture When Renovating?
Renovating? Congratulations! Now it’s time to think about the practicalities – such as, where do you store furniture when renovating? In the barn? The garage? A relative’s basement? Or a self storage facility? To find the answer, this Blog raises some key questions to consider when choosing the right storage for your household items during home renovations.
- Is your self storage solution weather protected?
- How much space do you have in your house and garage?
- Have you got self storage space for a whole house renovation?
- How will you navigate room-by-room renovations?
Is Your Self Storage Solution Weather Protected?
With a home renovation project on the horizon, you might be thinking of using covered roof buildings on your property as a self storage option, such as a barn, shed, or garage. However, you may want to think again.
Moisture & Humidity | Damage to Your Furniture
As a sub-tropical climate, Queensland is known for its heavy, frequent rainfall and humidity – with a warm, wet season that stretches up to 8 months of the year! When it comes to storing furniture (especially wooden items), outdoor spaces are a NO if your storage space has a roof, but is not completely walled-in and protected from the elements.
Even then, can you be sure that your furniture will remain dry and safe from leaks? If it’s not, your furniture will be at serious risk to mould and structural damage caused by moisture.
Unwanted Tenants | A New Home for Creepy Crawlies?
Aside from the weather, storing your furniture in an outside storage site is an invitation for new tenants to take residence – who knows what manner of pests and creepy crawlies might make their home in your furniture. Termites in particular will love snacking on anything wooden!
You definitely don’t want to move furniture back into your newly renovated house, only to discover you now have a termite infestation on your hands, thanks to the wooden vanity that was stored under the carport during renovations.
How Much Space Do You Have in Your House & Garage?
Don’t have any outdoor storage space available? Instead, are you thinking about squishing your furniture and belongings into other areas of your house or garage? Ask yourself, is this a practical solution? If you have limited space already, storing additional furniture in your spare room, hallways, and garage is:
- Annoying & obstructive
- A dangerous hazard
- Not suitable for young children
- Not practical for a busy household
Have You Got Storage Space for a Whole House Renovation?
Are you planning to renovate you whole house in one go? While this isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, sometimes it can be the perfect way to renovate. Instead of having to live in a construction site during renovations, you can:
- Go on holiday
- Travel overseas
- Visit family; or
- Rent temporary accommodation elsewhere
In this case, you’ll need to shift most, if not all, of your furniture out of the house. No room in the garage? No problems! You can hire a storage container and enjoy our Self Pack DIY Removalist Package to pack everything up in the timeframe that suits you. Hire options for the container can include leaving it parked on-site at your property, or you can store it at our fully fenced and secure self storage facility in Narangba, Queensland.
How To Navigate Room-by-Room Renovations
If you’re choosing to renovate on a room-by-room basis, a self storage container hire is an easy option for storing your furniture and belongings. With your accessible container storage, simply chop and change stored items as you complete one room renovation and start on the next.
Hiring a storage container in our off-site storage facility is a super convenient and secure option. Or, if you have space and security is not a concern, you can simply leave the container on-site at your property.
The Self Storage Solution for Your Renovation Project
All things considered, for a storage solution that will best protect your furniture, and provide optimal convenience and ease, hiring an off-site self storage container is a fantastic option. No need to trip over a house and garage crammed full of stuff, or worry about furniture rotting in the outdoor shed. With secure container storage, you can rest assured that your belongings are safe and sound, and out of the way!
