Furniture Storage

 Lay down plastic sheathing, or a pallet between furniture and the floor of storage unit  Cover all furniture  Disassemble furniture if possible  Wrap table legs with packaging paper for scratch protection  Lay assembled tables top down on floor with legs pointing up  Stack chairs seat-to-seat with cloth or papers separating them  Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls 

METAL MATERIALS STORAGE GUIDELINES

 Wipe a few drops of oil on bicycles and tools as rust protection; to avoid oil staining do not store next to exposed items 

BREAKABLE/FRAGILE ITEMS STORAGE GUIDELINES

  Separately wrap before storing in dish pack box  Pack paper into bottom, top, and empty spaces in carton  Tip plates, saucers, and bowls on their sides and use dish pack divider kit for increased security  Heavy items should not be stored on top of breakables  Labeling is doubly important 

BOOKS AND VALUABLE PAPERS STORAGE GUIDELINES

 File boxes are the best idea for your important documents  Pack books flat and fill any empty space to stop movement  Avoid overfilling cartons; books are heavy  Keep moisture free with plastic sheathing on top of pallets 

LARGE APPLIANCES AND EQUIPMENT STORAGE GUIDELINES
