Clothing, curtains and drapes should be stored on hangers. Avoid
storing anything that will attract rodents.
For ease in moving, pack with 1.5 cubic foot containers or less.
Place books flat to protect their spines. Do not pack fragile items
in the same box as books
Spray furniture with a good polish before storing. Stand sofas
and mattresses on end. Disassemble all furniture. Use dresser tops
for stacking items and the drawers for small items. Keep upholstery
off the floor. Never store heavy objects on top of upholstery.
Wrap all glassware and dishes properly. Place a layer of packing
material on bottom of box and top of items once packed. Dishware
should be stacked on edge. Use glass packing inserts for glasses.
Pack lampshades separately, and do not use newsprint or inked
papers to wrap them.
Always use special packing material, and always store on the
edges, never flat.
To stop rust, wipe metal objects with cleaning oil before
packing. Long handled tools should be tied in bundles.
