Storage Hints

  • Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for knick-knacks, china, silverware and other small items. Wrap them in your tablecloths, towels or blankets.
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in newspaper, dishcloths or bubble wrap and packed in sturdy boxes with cushioned tops and bottoms.
  • Boxes should be stacked on 2'x4' boards or pallets to prevent dampness damage (concrete floors can become cold and damp).
  • Plan you storage space. Place those items you may need to get to more often in front.
  • Use uniformly sized boxes for easy stacking. Boxes can be purchased from us or you can pick them up free at many grocery stores.
  • List contents of boxes on all four sides; number the boxes; seal them with masking or packaging tape.
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard or paper pad, marked "FRAGILE" and stacked on end.
  • Large appliances make excellent "packing cases" for blankets, towels and clothing.
  • Tables with removable legs should be broken down to save space.
  • Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to save floor space (tie hide-a-beds closed). Always place a protective cover under the end that rests on the floor. Cushions should be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
  • Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard, plastic or old bedding to protect against dust.
  • Mattresses should be propped up so they stand straight to prevent them from bending out of shape, and should be covered to protect against dust.
