If it’s fragile, pack it carefully to avoid breakage. Wrap dishes individually and use special dish boxes. Pack paper into the top, bottom and empty spaces of the carton. Tip plates and bowls on their sides and never stack heavy items.
Papers can be stored in file boxes or small boxes. However, books should be packed flat in smaller boxes because of their weight. Make sure any empty space in the box is stuffed with paper.
Wipe a few drops of oil on bicycles and tools to prevent rusting, then store those items away from furniture to avoid oil staining.
Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers. Shoes can be stored in the bottom of the wardrobe boxes, while folded clothing can be stored in boxes or dresser drawers.
Remember to keep refrigerator doors slightly ajar. Place an open box of baking soda or sprinkle some in your refrigerator to keep it fresh. Don’t forget to use the space inside appliances for storage too.
Identify the contents of each box for easy reference while in storage or transit.
