How to Store Furniture in a Storage Unit
Getting your furniture to your storage unit in one piece will require some care, even if your items aren’t particularly fragile. Reduce the risk of damage by wrapping your items in furniture covers or moving blankets.
Heavy bookcases and cabinets can be hard to move, so make sure to remove items from drawers and cupboards beforehand.
When placing a mattress in storage, maximise the space in your unit by storing it on its side. Soft furnishings such as throw cushions and pillows should be kept inside boxes.

Why choose National Storage?
Keeping your furniture safe isn’t the only thing we’re good at. National Storage offers a number of features and services for you to enjoy. These are just some of the reasons why our customers love us:
- Excellent Access Hours
Your storage unit should act as an extension of your home. This is why our centres have early morning to late evening opening hours. Most of our locations even give you 24/7 access, so you can access your belongings whenever you need them.
- Easy Payment
We want your self-storage experience to be as smooth as possible. That’s why we offer a simple payment system. We work from a monthly renewable contract, meaning you aren’t locked in for more time than you require. We send your invoice to you two weeks in advance, so if you’re thinking of moving out, you have plenty of time to give us notice.
- Huge Range of Sizes
Whether you’re storing a few valuables while you head overseas or you need a temporary home for every item in your house, National Storage has the perfect storage unit for you. With units ranging from 1.5m x 1.5m to massive 3m x 8m, you’ll have no trouble finding a solution that suits your needs. Plus, if your storage needs change over time, we can seamlessly upsize or downsize your unit for you.
- Premium Security
We take security very seriously. National Storage provides 24/7 CCTV surveillance of your unit while most centres have pin-coded access gates, meaning that only tenants are allowed in the centre. It is your own lock on the unit, meaning we don’t keep keys on premises, and no one has access to your unit other than you. Certain centres also have individually alarmed doors, and even a centre manager who lives on-site to potentially assist after-hours.
