When storing large household appliances, be sure to thoroughly dry and clean them and place a deodoriser inside to maintain a clean, fresh interior. If you’re storing furniture, be sure to empty the contents inside (perhaps move them to cartons) to avoid shelf damage. You can also remove legs from furniture to maximise space.
For delicate items like dishes, mirrors or painting, utilise packing paper, Bubble Wrap and cartons to prevent any damage while in transit. You can also label cartons with fragile items and position them on top of heavier items to preserve their integrity.
