Tips for Storage
Dispose of any unwanted goods.
Cover all mattresses, couches, etc. in Double Plastic and Bubble wrap glass tops, mirrors and pictures for the Furniture Removal.
Disassemble any furniture that you are able to. This will not only make moving the items easier, but will greatly reduce the risk of damage and breakage to your furniture while moving.
Tape any loose items together into a bundle. Ski poles, brooms, mops, and lamps stands can be taped into one package for easy transportation and storage.
Wherever possible, ensure that all parts of furniture to be moved are kept together. Screws, bolts and other small pieces can be stored in a self-locking plastic bag and then taped to the furniture itself.
Please secure mechanical/electrical appliances (bowls, motors of washing machine and tumble dryer, fridge, computers, musical instruments, etc.)
Drain fuel and oil from lawnmowers, edgers, tolls, etc.
Clean and Spray dog kennels, birdcages, fish tanks, etc.
