If you are like most people, you will probably use a storage unit at some point in your life. Whether moving or simply getting rid of clutter, storage units provide the space you need. Unfortunately, keeping your furniture in good condition while inside a storage unit can be difficult. Scratches, dents, and even breakage can all occur while sitting inside your storage unit.
Luckily, you can ensure that your furniture stays strong and in good condition by following these four tips:
While individual pieces of paper take up an almost negligible amount of space, books and book collections can very quickly take up a massive amount of space. In addition, books themselves are fairly fragile and are susceptible to both water and physical damage. In order to ensure that your book collection is transported without incident and using the smallest amount of space possible, you should take some steps to adequately prepare your books for a move.
Whether you have a shelf of books or an entire library, putting them in storage takes a bit of trust. Many books emerge from storage smelling musty or sporting stains on their once-clean pages. Luckily, you can make sure your books don't suffer the same fate by taking the time to pack them properly. Follow these tips for success.
Tip #1: Remove everything from between the pages.
Even a simple bookmark may leave a stain or mark on your book's pages after being sandwiched between them for a few years.
