  • Use good quality storage boxes (we sell a wide variety of sturdy cardboard boxes)

  • Fill boxes to capacity, as partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse

  • Pack heavy items into small boxes so they’re easy to lift

  • Label or number boxes so it’s easier to find your things later

  • Write a comprehensive list of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home

  • Protect your fragile goods with bubble wrap

  • Wrap dishes and glasses in bubble wrap before storing

  • Clean your garden equipment before storing it

  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing them

  • Use Wardrobe boxes for your fragile clothing items such as dresses, coats or suits

  • Place heavy or bulky items in the room first to provide a good stacking base

  • Plan your storage space – put those items that you need to get to most often near the front, close to the door

  • Stack similar sized boxes together

  • Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses

  • Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings

  • Stack chairs seat to seat with cloth or paper to separate them

  • Be sure that there remains no water in your refrigerator before storing

  • Leave refrigerator or freezer doors open for ventilation when storing

  • Wrap pictures and mirrors, then stack them on their end in boxes marked ‘fragile’

  • To aid ventilation, avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls

  • Cover your goods with dust sheets to protect against dust
