Packing Tips

Make your packing much easier and protect your goods while they’re in storage by taking note of these Packing Tips:

  • Start by putting together a ‘Portable Packing Kit’, with a marker pen, parcel tape, labels and scissors
  • Make sure you have the right number of boxes to hand, in a variety of sizes
  • Use protective wrap on your delicate belongings – it’s the best way to stop scratches, dents or breakages
  • Stack plates on their sides
  • Drain freezers, washing machines and refrigerators 2 days before storage – store these items with the doors wedged open
  • Always pack bedding or clothes in boxes to prevent moisture damage from ‘sweating’ that can sometimes build up in plastic bags.
  • Chair legs and furniture corners are easy to protect but expensive to repair – wrap them in corrugated cardboard for best protection
  • Clean all outside tools and equipment thoroughly before putting them into storage
