Some top tips from our team
If you are storing furniture ask yourself if it needs to be protected whilst being moved, are the edges or corners fragile?
Books & magazines should be stored in small boxes so that they are not too heavy to carry.
If it's fragile then it's a good idea to protect it with bubble wrap
Bed mattresses should have covers on them to prevent them getting dirty or dusty when being moved.
Fridges & Freezers need to be emptied of perishable goods (food & drink) and need to be defrosted before they are stored. They should also be stored with their doors ajar.
All food or washing appliances whether large or small need to be stored in a clean condition to ensure they are kept at their best for use after storage.
