What to look for in a Johannesburg furniture storage facility

It pays to be picky when you’re looking for furniture storage. It might be tempting to rent a friend’s garage but you’re risking dirt, damp, pests and, ultimately, ruined upholstery.


The storage facility you choose should always have the following:

  • clean and dry storage spaces (especially in humid Johannesburg)
  • a high level of security and access control
  • large storage units that comfortably hold your furniture
  • easy and safe to access.

Furniture storage tips

Furniture can be stored safely for long periods of time. It’s still a good idea to take extra precautions and prepare furniture items to avoid damage. Follow these expert tips:

  • place furniture on wooden pallets or cardboard to create a barrier between it and the floor
  • wrap feet and fragile parts with bubble wrap or aerothene to protect from scratches
  • disassemble items with removable shelves or drawers
  • make sure all furniture items are clean and 100% dry
  • vacuum upholstered furniture and consider a deep clean
  • clean and polish wooden furniture
  • cover furniture with dust covers or blankets but avoid plastic
  • use silica gel packets to counteract Johannesburg’s humidity.

Finding a reliable mover in Johannesburg

If you need help from a mover to get your furniture to the storage facility, always research potential moving companies. Start with recommendations from friends or family.


Look at online reviews from former clients to get an idea of cost, service, friendliness and reliability. Once you’ve made a shortlist, get quotes and compare prices before making a final decision.
