WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PACKING FOR FURNITURE
Empty wardrobes, drawers and cupboards to protect shelving and framework. Beds and tables are to be disassembled if possible and wrap the legs. Store tables and other fragile items on padding, upside down on top of other solid sturdy items.
Vacuum upholstery before storing. Avoid using plastic covers for furniture and mattresses to minimise the problem of mould caused by humidity, although during transport a plastic cover is ideal, particularly on items that could be damaged in the event of a sudden downpour. Lightweight chairs can be stacked seat to seat or on top of upturned tables.
