Learn how to box.

  • Use good quality storage boxes (we sell sturdy cardboard and plastic 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 tissue paper or bubble wrap before storing
  • Clean your garden equipment before storing it
  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing them
  • 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
  • Secure and protect white goods from scratches with shrink wrap during transportation
  • 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
