Furniture Storage

A Simple Solution for Furniture Storage

Keeping your furniture secure and out of the way is easy when you have a clean and convenient storage unit. National Storage can provide you with the perfect temporary home for your couches, bookcases, cabinets, beds, tables, dining sets and other household items.

Self-storage is the ideal solution if you are:

  • Downsizing into a home with less space for furniture
  • Moving house and needing somewhere safe to keep your furniture during the transition
  • About to embark on extended travel and looking for a secure place to leave your furniture.

Whether you need a short-term unit for your house’s contents or a long-term space for an extra couch that’s cramping your style, rely on National Storage to tailor the right unit for the right price.

Tips for Storing Furniture

Even if your furniture isn’t fragile, it is still vulnerable to damage during the trip from your home to your storage unit. To reduce the risks, wrap your items in furniture covers or moving blankets (you can find some of these in our Box Shop). Chairs that easily stack are convenient, but they aren’t invincible – place cloth or packing paper in between them to add an extra layer of protection.

When storing cabinets, bookcases and similar items, it’s best to remove any contents prior to the move. Packing small objects in a moving box will prevent them from becoming loose during transit and doing damage to themselves or the piece of furniture’s interior.

If you are storing a mattress, ensure you cover it properly and store it vertically so that it doesn’t take up more space than it needs to. Any pillows, cushions or other soft pieces of furniture should ideally be kept in boxes.

For guidance on storing other items (such as electronics, books and clothing) alongside your furniture, please visit out Hints and Tips page.

  • What size unit will I need for my furniture?

    Please see our Unit Size Guide to get an idea of which unit size will best suit your furniture storage needs.

  • How can I get my furniture to my storage unit?

    The bulky nature of furniture can make it difficult to transport from your house to your storage unit. While removalists can do this for you, they are often expensive and may not be available when you need them. For your convenience, National Storage is partnered with U-Haul Australia, giving our customers access to affordable and convenient trailer and truck hire.
