Effective Dinnerware Storage in a Storage Unit

If you've acquired a new set of dishes that you plan to use in the future, or are considering an upgrade and need to store your current set, using a self-storage unit is an excellent way to keep them safe, especially from household hazards like pets or children. To ensure proper storage, consider these tips.

Initial Steps: Sorting and Cleaning

First, decide which dishes you'll realistically use in the future and consider donating or discarding the rest. This step helps you utilize less space in your storage unit, saving costs. Clean the dishes thoroughly to remove any food remnants, as leftover food can promote mold and dirt accumulation.

Positioning Your Dishes in the Unit

Place your dishes towards the front of your storage unit. By packing them last, you ensure easier access whenever needed. Given their fragility, it's best to store them atop other, less frequently used items in your unit.

Secure Packing and Labeling

Strengthen any boxes you're reusing to ensure they adequately protect your dishes. Reinforce the boxes' corners and edges with sturdy packing tape. Insert cushioning materials like crumpled paper, soft fabric, or bubble wrap at the bottom of each box to mitigate impact. Wrap each dish individually, placing heavier items at the bottom, and ensure boxes aren't overloaded.

For glasses and cups, place them upside down and add additional padding inside. Use extra cushioning to fill any remaining space in the box and top it off with more protective material. Label each box clearly as 'Fragile' to alert movers to handle them with care.


Storing dishes in a self-storage unit requires careful packing and thoughtful placement. By following these guidelines, you can ensure your dishes remain intact and readily accessible.
