Use quality boxes – Supermarket boxes may seem like a saving, but they don’t stack well and often collapse.

Label everything! – When you’ve filled a box, write a label (or write on it) what’s inside, in as much detail as you can. Make sure you write labels for all sides of the box, that way it doesn’t matter which way it goes in. Use our labelling, tape, marker and inventory listing system

Always fill a box – Never overfill, as they bulge and will be difficult to stack. Under filled boxes can collapse when stacked so try to fill or at least support each box from the inside. Our boxes are height adjustable. Don’t let the box get to heavy. Spread load among boxes. Save your back always use good lifting technique.

Use the right size box for the job- Remember books and clothing are heavy, don’t use the biggest box or pack it so full it can’t be moved.

Store books flat to protect the spines and alternate the spine position to keep the stack level. Small precious objects should be carefully wrapped with bubble wrap or newspaper and boxed.

Fragile items should be protected – Use bubble wrap or paper to stop them rattling around in transit.

Lamp shades should be stored separately and covered or boxed, don’t use newspaper for this though, as the ink may stain the shade!

Clothing and linen should be clean, dry and folded. Store either in boxes or in drawers or suitcases. Some special items, such as quality curtains and posh frocks are better hung and (we have special wardrobe boxes with hanging rails for this purpose). A mattress should be covered with either dust sheets or mattress protectors

Fridges and freezers should be cleaned and fully defrosted and stored with the doors slightly open.

Washing machines should be cleaned and fully drained, use the travel bolts if you still have them.

List of things you cannot store – food, inflamables, illegal smells (list to be expanded)
