APPLIANCES
FURNITURE

Empty the contents of wardrobes, drawers and cupboards to protect the shelving and structure of these items. Clothing should be packed where possible into purpose made PORT-A-ROBES, and personal goods should be packed in strong secure cartons.

 

Where possible remove the legs from items of furniture e.g.. bed bases, tables etc. to avoid damage and save space. Vacuum food crumbs from lounges to prevent attracting vermin.

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Place a layer of crushed paper inside the bottom and top of cartons containing breakables. Protect fragile items by wrapping them individually in packing paper (newsprint can be very messy and possibly stain). Nest cups and bowls, stand plates, saucers, platters, casseroles on their edges. Fill any gaps in the cartons with packing e.g.: scrunched paper or linen. This will keep your fragile items well protected and prevent them from moving around in the cartons whilst in transit. Label all cartons containing fragile items and avoid storing heavy items on the top of these cartons.

     

Please refer to our storage reference diagram below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These items should be protected by packing material e.g.; bubble-wrap or in a flat-pack carton. Store them standing on their edges in an upright position (not lying flat).

   

 

 

 

 

     Your electrical equipment is very delicate and sensitive and should be handled with care. These items will never travel better than in original boxes. However wrapping items individually in bubble-wrap, packing them in cartons, and sealing the top will offer adequate protection for your electrical items to ensure that they are maintained in perfect working order. Remember to pack out any gaps in the cartons.

 

 

 

 

        We recommend that you remove the batteries to avoid damage from leaking Batteries.

  

 

 

 

 

 

     Computers, like your other electrical items, need special care. The original boxes are highly recommended for packing. However bubble-wrap and good quality packing cartons will do the job. Remember to use some packing or linen in the bottom and top of cartons. This provides extra protection to the contents. Pack out any gaps. If you are unsure about your computer, refer to the manufacturer's manual, or consult your retailer, especially if storing for longer than six months.

 

Some printers and most scanners can have a locking switch and this should be placed into the lock position to ensure maximum protection in transit.

 

 

 

 

   

 

     Drain fuel and oil from all machinery. This reduces the risk of leakage, spillage and damage to other goods in your space. Petrol and oil left in machinery are also a fire hazard.

 

 

 

 

This is only a very broad overview of methods of packing your possessions for safe transit, if any questions arise for which the answers are not clear, it is better to be safe than sorry. We are more than welcoming when it comes to friendly advice.

 

     Fill cartons to capacity only, partially full or bulging cartons may cause the carton to tip or collapse as they are stacked. Heavy items
               like books or tools should be packed in small cartons so
             they are easy to handle.  Books should be packed flat, not
                       on their spines. Packing and labelling cartons room
                    by room makes the unpacking much easier, and if
                you need to find something in storage you will have some idea of which carton to begin looking in.

  

 

DISHES, GLASSWARE & CERAMICS

Lighter items to the top

Heavier items to the bottom

Use Crushed Newspaper between the layers of items individually wrapped in PLAIN paper.

"Cross" tape the bottom

MIRRORS & PAINTINGS

 

 

     Fridges, freezers and other white goods should be thoroughly defrosted, dry and clean before storing. Whilst in storage the door should be secured slightly ajar.

 

A deodoriser placed inside fridges or freezers is also a good idea to maintain freshness. Don't place items inside fridges or freezers as the shelves and linings can be easily marked and damaged.
