We’ve provided some handy tips to get you started.
Use packaging materials such as cartons, paper, tape and bubble wrap to protect your goods.
Do not overfill boxes as they will be harder to stack and may tip.
Heavy items should be packed in smaller boxes to make them easier to handle.
Books should be packed flat.
Label each box as you pack, so you can easily find items in storage.
White goods should be clean and dry before storing.
Freezer and fridge doors should be secured slightly ajar to air, a deodoriser placed inside helps!
Keep fridges and freezers empty, as the shelves and linings can be easily marked or damaged.
Do not store food in fridges or freezers.
Empty wardrobes, cupboards and drawers to protect the shelving and structure.
Use drop sheets or covers to help protect your furniture.
To save space, remove legs from tables, beds, etc.
Personal items and clothing should be packed in secure cartons with mothballs, lavender, naphthalene, or similar repellent to assist in protecting your goods.
Handle with care, this equipment is very delicate.
Use original boxes where possible, wrap items individually in bubble wrap before you pack them.
Use paper or linen to fill any gaps in cartons.
Plasma TVs should be protected with bubble wrap or similar, and stored upright.
Remove batteries to avoid damage from leaking batteries.
Drain fuel and oil from machinery; this will reduce the risk of leaks and damage to other items in your storage space.
Store vehicles and mowers with minimal fuel – petrol and oil are a fire hazard.
Disconnect the battery from vehicles, this will prolong the life of the battery.
Wrap fragile items individually in packing paper – avoid using newspaper, as it can be very messy.
Stand platters, saucers plates, and casseroles on their edge; nest cups and bowls.
Pack items of crockery into smaller cartons to make easier to handle.
Use scrunched up paper or linen to fill any gaps when packing – place a layer of packing at the bottom and top of cartons containing breakables.
Avoid storing heavy items on top of glassware & crockery.
