Place your furniture on 2”x4” boards or pallets, and store mattresses flat on top of a level stack of boxes or furniture. Your items should be covered to prevent damage. (Note: We sell mattress covers at the front office.)


Save floor space by “breaking down” furniture (removing table legs, disassembling bookcases, etc.) and storing sofas and loveseats on end. Utilize all available furniture drawers to conserve space and better protect your items. Larger appliances (such as refrigerators) make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths, and clothes. Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in empty trashcans.


Prior to storing, ensure that the surfaces of antiques and other wood furnishings are treated.
