Tips on packing for storage


Whether you need storage for furniture, a few items or everything you own. You want to do it right! This means packing carefully and strategically. The first priority is to prevent any damage from happening. This could be moisture damage to pest control. Check out the tips below from the professional movers at My Moovers, the moving and storage experts in Melbourne.



Moving and Storage

Packing Tips:

  1. For storage of furniture, wrap furniture in cotton sheets to protect them during moving and storing.
  2.  Avoid using plastic bags for long term storage, as they keep in moisture and cause mold to grow on your items.
  3. When packing odd-shaped items, fill the box up to the brim and fill in the gaps with packing material like newspaper or bubble wrap.
  4. Don’t use old or broken boxes. These can break open or pests can find their way in. Use large boxes for lightweight items and small boxes for heavy items.
  5. Individually wrap every plate, dish, and cup to avoid cracking or chipping during the move.
  6. Buy fitted cardboard corners and lots of bubble wrap for picture frames and mirrors as they are the most likely items to break.
  7. Make sure you wash and dry everything prior to packing – including clothing, blankets, curtains, etc. This will prevent from mold and pests.
  8. Clean all your items properly before storage; wood polish for wood items, conditioner for leather, and rust preventative for metal items. This will help preserve them for long term storage.
  9. Label and mark down what is in each box. This will make it easy to identify in the future if you need to find something.

Storing Tips:
