I am going to Texas for few months on a business tour. Since there won’t be anyone at my house ( wife is travelling with me and kids are away for studies) I am planning to keep all the valuables at home in some self storage units. I am concerned about the wooden furniture though. Is it okay to store them in storage units. I don’t have much of an idea about these units so I would like to get some advise here. Is a temperature controlled one okay to store furniture? Or is there any other specification for storage units that store wooden furniture?

There is a myriad of information on the net concerning storage of wood furniture. You want to look for a climate controlled unit which has temperature as well as humidity stabilization. Do a search for “storing furniture long term” and read the information. Also, get pricing form several storage facilities as there is quite a spread in pricing. Read the fine print on your contract.

Just as important is how you wrap the furniture. One thing is that most pros suggest, is not to wrap your furniture with plastic as it does not allow the wood to breath.

Thanks for the reply pjones46, I have searched for storage units that are temperature controlled and there seem to be quite a number of them. I have already spoken with one of the self storage facility here and their prices seem decent enough. I will be meeting with another one tomorrow. Once again thanks for the advice.

Have your say...
