Packing and storage tips

We'll Call You Back

Packing Tips

  • Stack chairs seat to seat with a cloth or paper to separate them
  • Use good quality storage boxes
  • Fill boxes to capacity – partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Heavy items should be packed into small boxes so that they are easy to lift
  • Take a copy of your inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home
  • Protect your fragile goods in bubble wrap and tissue paper
  • Fragile items such as crockery and glasses should be wrapped in paper or bubble wrap before storing – do not use newspaper (the ink stains)
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in bubble wrap, marked fragile and stacked on their end
  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap or corrugated cardboard before storing
  • Use wardrobe boxes which allow you to store your clothing on hangers in order to keep their shape
  • Protect your sofas, chairs and mattresses with our covers

Storage Tips

  • Place heavy or bulky items in the room first to provide a good packing base
  • Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses
  • Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings
  • Lay a dust sheet on the floor of your room to protect your goods
  • Always fully defrost and clean fridge/freezers before storing them
  • Leave fridge/freezer doors open for ventilation and to prevent mould
  • Garden equipment should be cleaned and lawn mowers should be drained of petrol before storing
  • Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls to aid ventilation
  • Cover your goods with a dust sheet to protect against dust
  • Pack seasonal equipment at the front so it is easily accessible
