What do I need to do before storage?

White goods appliances

White goods such as fridges and freezers should always be emptied and cleaned; trays drained doors should be left open, do not stack things inside them as they are easily damaged.


To ensure your furniture is not damaged, empty the contents of drawers, wardrobes and cupboards, remove legs from furniture such as beds and tables; they will take up less room and less damage will occur. Vacuum all your lounges etc., to ensure no breadcrumbs and other food scraps are left behind, and no vermin are attracted.

Glass, Paintings, Mirrors

Protect these by using bubble wrap and packing them in strong boxes; stand them upright and don’t stack anything on top.

Silver and other Metal Items

Wipe cast iron and other items with a little machine oil; this prevents rusting and prevents dust from adhering; wrap silver in Acid-free wrapping paper to prevent tarnishing.


Records should be stored on their edges, tightly packed together with no gaps to avoid warping.
