Packing Boxes 101 — Label all boxes for easy retrieval. Fill boxes completely when stacking to avoid collapse and place the heaviest boxes on the bottom and label “this side up”.
Storing Upholstered Furniture — Upholstery should be placed on a pallet to protect furniture. Allow space between the fabric and any covering. Never use plastic; it can collect moisture, which will cause mold and mildew.
