A self storage facility holds a wide range of different materials, from furniture to soft furnishings.

Prepare your fabrics with our top storage tips:

Clean and Dry: Make sure your fabrics are clean and completely dry before you store them, this will prevent mould, mildew and other possible damage. 

Label: Ensure your boxers or containers holding fabrics are labelled, so they are easy to find within your self storage unit to regularly clean and dry if being stored long-term. 

Packaging: Use packing materials such as bubble wrap around hard belongings and packing paper etc. around soft fabrics, to protect from stains or marks. Ideally, pack in the same position as it would be at home to avoid deep creases. 

Leave Space: Distance between boxes and storage unit walls to allow for ventilation and airflow, ensuring your fabrics remain fresh, for even easier access stack boxes on shelving racks, keeping them off the floor too. 

Protect from Moisture: Use silica gel moisture absorbing packets when storing fabrics to prevent damp.
