Using packing accessories such as cartons, porta robes, paper, tape, bubble wrap and plastic covers will maintain packing and protect your goods whilst in storage. A variety of packing accessories are available at Ceylon Shipping Lines. Cartons should be filled to capacity as partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse. Heavy items like books or tools should be packed in small cartons so they are easy to handle. Books should be packed flat, not on their spines. Packing and labelling cartons room by room makes the unpacking much easier and will give you an idea of which carton to begin looking in if you need to find something in storage.
Fridges, freezers and other white goods should be thoroughly dried and cleaned before storing. Whilst in storage the door should be slightly ajar. Placing a deodoriser inside fridges or freezers is also a good idea to maintain freshness. Don’t place items inside fridges or freezers as the shelves and linings can be easily marked and damaged.
DISHES AND GLASSWARE
Place a layer of cushioning inside the top and the bottom or cartons containing breakables. Protect fragile items by wrapping them individually in packing paper. Fill any gaps in the cartons with packing eg; scrunched paper or linen. To keep your fragile items well protected and prevent them from moving around in the cartons whilst in transit. Label all cartons containing fragile items and avoid heavy items on the top of these cartons
MIRRORS, WINDOWS, SCREENS AND PAINTINGS
These items should be protected by packing material eg: bubble wrap or in a flat pack carton. Store them standing on their edges in an upright position. (Not lying flat)
STEREOS, TELEVISIONS AND VIDEOS
Your electrical equipment is very delicate and sensitive and should be handled with care. The original boxes are ideal to repack in. However, wrapping items individually in bubble wrap, packing in cartons and sealing the top will offer protection for your electrical items.
BATTERY OPERATED APPLIANCES AND TOYS
We recommend that you remove the batteries to avoid damage from leaking batteries
Computers, like your other electrical items, need special care. The original boxes are highly recommended for packing. However, bubble wrap and good quality packing cartons will do the job. Remember to use some packing or linen in the bottom and top of cartons to provide extra protection to the contents.
