Prima di tutto, è bene utilizzare sempre scatole di buona qualità. Presso il Deposito Ticino abbiamo un’ampia varietà di materiali che puoi utilizzare per imballare e custodire i tuoi oggetti. L’attrezzatura da giardino deve essere pulita prima di essere depositata, il serbatoio di moto, motorini e taglia erba svuotato, la batteria staccata. I mobili vanno preferibilmente smontati per risparmiare spazio e ricoperti con coperte di protezione; quadri e specchi depositate sempre in verticale, mai in piano, per evitare che si rovinino. Non depositare oggetti di valore come chiavi, documenti, denaro contanti o gioielli. Accertati di avere riempito interamente le scatole, per evitare che gli oggetti contenuti si schiaccino, e posiziona in fondo gli elementi più pesanti. Ti consigliamo di riporre libri, CD e dischi in scatole piccole (mass.10kg), in modo da rendere più agevole il trasporto e lo stoccaggio.

I nostri consulenti sono a vostra completa disposizione per fornirvi qualsiasi tipo di informazione in merito a traslochi e materiali imballaggi disponibili.
