Storage Tips

How to Store Washers, Dryers, and Other Appliances

An Access Storage unit that’s perfect for storing washers, dryers, and other appliances.

While appliances such as washers and dryers are very useful they can also take up a lot of space. Whether you’re transitioning between homes, going away for an extended period of time, or are simply on the prowl for a new washer and haven’t sold your old one yet, self storage is often a good idea. However, you will want to ensure you’re storing your appliances properly. Here are some tips and tricks that can help! 

1. Properly Clean and Wipe Down Your Appliances

Make sure you clean and wipe down all your appliances to remove any dirt or grime as this can prevent rust. For washers, this process is easier as you can run a cleansing rinse that will remove any leftover detergent. Also, make sure you give your appliances plenty of time to dry!

2. Detach Any Removable Parts

If your appliances have any removable parts, go ahead and detach them prior to putting them into a self storage unit.

3. Consult the Manufacturer’s Manual for Moving

Sometimes a washer or dryer may have specific instructions and how they’re supposed to be moved. You can find this in their manufacturer’s manual. 

4. Cover up Your Appliances

To protect your appliances and keep them clean, be sure to use heavy-duty blankets or tarps to cover them up. 

5. Use the Right Storage Service

While there are plenty of storage services you can use to put your appliances into self storage, Access Storage is highly recommended for the Corpus Christi area.
