Stack plates on their sides and use acid-free tissue paper to wrap them individually
Drain freezers, washing machines and refrigerators 2 days before storage – store these items with the doors wedged open

Chair legs and furniture corners are easy to protect but expensive to repair – wrap them in corrugated card for best protection
Using a wardrobe box will help your clothes retain their shape
Clean all outside tools and equipment thoroughly before putting them into storage
Make sure you don’t pack away the essentials, like the loo roll, mugs, milk, tea, the coffee and the kettle!
