What do I do with my furniture during a renovation?

When you’re renovating your home, one of the biggest challenges is finding the right place to store your furniture. You don’t want it to get damaged or dirty, and you don’t want it to take up unnecessary space in your living area. It’s also important to consider the affordability as costs can rise if storing items for long periods of time. 

There are a number of options available – such as self-storage units, farming out your furniture to family and friends, or renting a storage container. The latter is a great furniture storage option as it ensures your items are kept safe and secure during a home renovation.

What is my best storage option?

There are a few different options for storing furniture during a renovation. One is to rent a self-storage unit. This is particularly useful if you need to visit it frequently, but it can be expensive, and it can be inconvenient to have to go to the storage facility every time you need something, and you’ll need to rent a truck to transport it all.

Another option is to store your furniture with friends or family. This can be a free option, and it may be convenient if you have friends or family who live close by. However, it can not only be disruptive to your friends or family, it’s also rare to find someone who has enough extra space to accommodate all of your furniture without getting in their way or risking damage.

The best option for storing furniture during a renovation is to use a portable storage container. Storage containers are a great way to keep your furniture safe and secure, and they’re much more affordable than renting a storage unit. Best of all, you don’t have to rent a truck and load and unload it again and again. With iCan, you have the option of leaving the storage container on your driveway or having our team come and collect it to store at our facility.

Portable storage container, you say. What are the advantages of a storage container during a renovation?

Creating A Safe Working Environment

One of the biggest advantages of choosing a container as your renovation storage is that it creates a safe working environment. Completing work in an environment that is full of furniture could be dangerous and can slow proceedings down drastically. When your furniture is stored in a container, however, it’s protected from dust, dirt, and debris, keeping it in great condition until you unpack it to use again.


Another advantage of using a storage container is that it’s very affordable. The cost of renting a storage container is much lower than the cost of renting a self-storage unit and comes with the added benefit of convenience.


Portable storage containers are exactly that: portable. They can be delivered right to your door, and they’re easy to load and unload since they’re low to the ground. This means that you can store your furniture without having to manually transport items using a van or rented truck  – simply load up directly from your home to your driveway. It’s like getting an extra garage.

If you’re planning a renovation, be sure to consider using a storage container to store your furniture. Our renovation storage solutions offer a safe, affordable, and convenient way to keep your furniture safe and sound during the renovation process.
