Packing Your Sofa for Storage

Whether you are looking to permanently free up space around your home or office or just need to use self-storage in San Bernardino, Los Angeles, or Orange County, it is important to store your belongings properly. Different types of belongings should be packed and stored differently; it helps to look into the recommended packing methods beforehand. Read on for a few tips for packing your sofa for storage.

Clean and Polish
When it comes to preparing your sofa for storage, it helps to start by cleaning the fabric. Be sure to choose a cleaner that is designed for your sofa’s material, wipe it down thoroughly, and allow it to dry completely. You can then polish any wooden or metal components with the appropriate cleaner. It often helps to consult manufacturer directions if you are unsure what type of cleaner or polish to use for your sofa.

Once your sofa is clean and completely dry, detach the legs and store them separately—keep in mind, however, that you should only complete this step if the legs are designed for detachment. You can cover each leg in packing material if you are worried about them scratching or bumping each other in a bag or box.

Cover and Store
Each sofa pillow should be stored in its own plastic bag when you take it to the self-storage unit. Lay down a pallet and cover it in a tarp or other plastic covering, and then use bubble wrap to protect any fragile areas of your sofa before placing it on top of the pallet. Keep the sofa away from walls and potentially hazardous objects, and try to avoid storing it on one of its end s. Finally, cover the sofa with a sheet or storage bag.

POUCH Happening - Great Things to Be Said About Randy!

I've been at Anaheim for 13 years, as of yesterday. Wow. I have to say that your wonderful self storage in Anaheim has been the one stable thing in my life, since I've been on the road all that time, and I am so glad my things have been safely in your hands. Thank you. I am truly blessed.

And the person who really has helped me from the get-go is Randy. Yes, I know he's in Tustin, now, but he is such a gem. When the company made on-line payments a reality in 2009, Randy is the one who took the time to show me how to do that, by phone. And whenever I called there about something, he was always friendly, helpful and besides answering my question, he'd always make me laugh with his wonderful sense of humor. I can't tell you the number of times he's set the whole tone of my day with his customer service mindset. Thank you so much for having him on your staff. He's truly made a difference for me.

And one more note: It's too bad that the Orange County Chamber of Commerce does not have an award program like the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce does: They honor people like Randy who truly have provided outstanding, customer service. Just know that if Pouch were in Las Vegas, I would nominate Randy for a Customer Service Excellence award. He's that good.

Most Sincerely,

Ms. Matteson Barcklay ( a.k.a Miss 632)
