PACKING TIPS FOR YOUR VALUABLES:

Put pallets or a grid of 2'x 3's on unit floor to give better air circulation under goods; leave a walkway/aisle to the rear of the unit; don't overpack the room

Fill boxes to capacity; partially full or bulging boxes may collapse or tip over while stored.

Books and Documents: pack books flat to protect spines; use small boxes to avoid cartons that are too heavy to move easily; put heavy items on bottom.

Dishes and Glassware: glass items should be individually wrapped; use blank wrapping paper for best results; "nest" cups and bows, stand plates and platters; fill air pockets with wrapping paper or foam peanuts; don't put breakables under other boxes.

Mirrors, Windows, Screens: Wrap all glass well; store on edge, not flat.

Lamps: pack lamp shades separately; use blank paper to wrap lamp shades/other property that may be damaged by ink-stains from regular newsprint.

Furniture: stand sofas and mattresses on end; disassemble beds/tables; wrap legs in wrapping paper; keep upholstery off floor; place loose, light plastic dust covers over furniture.

Appliances and Electronics: clean appliances thoroughly; refrigerators and freezers must be defrosted and dry and washing machines completely drained; remove doors of appliances and store separately; desiccants (drying agents) should be used and containers checked and emptied regularly.
