- Washing machines and dishwashers should have all water drained from their interiors, including pipes. The inner and outer bowl of the washing machine should be secured to prevent mechanical derangement
- Before storing any mechanical or electrical goods, check with the manufacturer for any specific instructions.
- Ensure you have not packed documents you will need before you take delivery of your goods – passports, medical records, tax records, licenses etc.

- Ensure your jewellery is not included in your storage container.
- Have any carpets and rugs to be kept in storage cleaned, prior to stowing.
