Packing Tips For WheeKeep

Home Appliances
  • Clean and thoroughly dry all appliances to prevent mould and
    rust.
  • Fill empty spaces with packing paper and securely wrap larger items.
  • Pack small appliances (kettles, toasters) individually in smaller-sized boxes
  • Consult the manufacturer’s instructions before storing larger appliances (dishwashers, fridges, freezers, washers and dryers) for special instructions to prevent damage
Furniture
  • Clean all furniture thoroughly and dry for 1–2 days before packing to
    prevent mould.
  • Dismantle furniture where appropriate to make packing easier.
  • Place any small items (screws, nuts and bolts) in a sealed bag taped to
    the underside of the piece.
  • Tape up doors and drawers and wrap furniture in protective blankets to
    prevent dust, moisture, dents and scratches.
Glassware & Dishes
  • Clean and dry items thoroughly before packing.
  • Wrap each item individually in bubble wrap.
  • For extra protection, fill empty spaces between items with packing
    paper.
  • Pack heavier items into boxes first with lighter items towards the top.
TVs & Electronics
  • Ensure that TVs and electronic goods are clean, dry, and dust-free.
  • Wrap the item in bubble wrap to prevent damage.
  • Store these items in their original boxes (if possible) or use similar-sized
    boxes with sufficient cushioning from styrofoam chips.
  • TVs are particularly sensitive items and temperature controlled storage is
    highly recommended if you plan on storing your TV long term.
Garage & Other Items
  • Remove all dust, dirt, plant matter, insects, and oil or dirty grease from
    gardening tools or other hardware items before packing.
  • Empty grass catchers and wheelbarrows or buckets to prevent rotting and
    insect infestation.
  • Drain fuel from fuel tanks of items such as lawnmowers or edge cutters to
    reduce the risk of fire in your WheeKeep.
  • Lightly grease any steel blades to protect them from rust.
Books, Documents & Files
  • Protect books, files and other paper-based items from sunlight and moisture.
  • Ensure your business records, collectables, and other paperwork or books are
    clean, dry and insect-free before packing.
  • Place a piece of grease-proof or tracing paper between books to prevent the
    covers from sticking to each other.
  • Pack documents, books and files into airtight containers before putting them
    into your WheeKeep.
