Appliance Storage

Various appliances on a counter.
It’s finally time to get new appliances; to replace the working but weathered oven, renew the functional but fading dishwasher. Maybe even upgrade to a brand new washer and dryer set. But your old appliances still work – and you’d hate to see the installers take away what could eventually be a lifesaver.

So you decide to store your old appliances. The question is, where?

That’s where self storage throughout the great state of Texas comes in. Renting a self storage unit is the quick and simple solution to keeping your old but working appliances without letting them clutter up the garage or shed. And if prepared properly, your appliances can live a long time in a storage unit, and are ready to be used when it’s time to give them to the kids, to the neighbors, to a buyer – or to yourself.

Check out Storage Choice’s Tips on preparing your appliances for self storage so that you can ensure a long life for them in their temporary storage home.

Preparing Your Appliances for Self Storage

Step 1: Clean it Out

Step 2: Drain and Dry

For every appliance, leave it open to air dry for at least a few hours, if not an entire evening.

Step 3: Prep for the Move

Step 4: Proper Storing

All of the appliances need to breathe to avoid mildew, so make sure you remove the ties and open all of the doors. Place open boxes of baking soda inside each appliance. Cover the appliances with a sheet or tarp to protect it from potential dust.

When placing them inside the unit, make sure you give ample space so you can easily remove any one of the appliances you store.
