Useful advice before you start storing

  • Use good quality storage boxes. We sell cardboard boxes and everything you could need in our box shop
  • Fill boxes to capacity, as partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Heavy items should be packed into small boxes so that they are easy to lift
  • Label or number boxes for easy reference when you need to locate your goods
  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home
  • Protect your fragile goods in bubble wrap
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in tissue paper or bubble wrap before storing
  • Garden equipment should be cleaned before storing
  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing
  • Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers which keeps their shape
  • 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
  • To maximise space 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
  • Leave refrigerator or freezer doors open for ventilation
  • Pictures and mirrors should be bubble wrapped and securely stored in boxes, marked fragile and stacked on their end
  • Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls to aid ventilation
  • Cover your goods with dust sheets to protect against dust during the move
