Big, bulky and incredibly valuable, furniture can be quite a challenge to store. From finding the right unit size for all of your items to playing a lethal game of Tetris trying to make your oddly shaped items fit, there are countless things to consider before storing your furniture. To store your furniture safely without the added stress, follow these 5 simple steps from the Pink Hippo experts: 

  • Find the right size
    Before you can begin preparing your items for storage, you first need to decide what size unit you will need. With over 18 different unit sizes to choose from, we have a unit for any need, whether that’s storing excess office desks or household furniture during renovations. If you’re not sure what size will be the right fit, our team will be more than happy to help.
  • Clean and polish
    To keep your furniture in pristine condition, it’s always a good idea to give it a wipe down and polish, especially if you plan on storing it for the long term. If not properly cleaned, dust and grime can acclimate, ruining your prized antiques or stylish furniture.

  • Disassemble large items
    Large furniture can be very difficult to transport and store. To make the process a bit easier, disassemble anything that can easily come apart, such as flat-pack furniture, side tables and bookshelves. This will reduce the chances of your furniture being damaged during transportation and even save space in your storage unit.
  • Wrap for long-term storage
    Wrapping your furniture is key to keeping your items clean and dust-free. At Pink Hippo, we have a range of packaging materials guaranteed to give your furniture the best protection, these include covers for your mattress, sofas, armchairs, as well as bubble wrap and packing paper.
