Changing the house is not less than a big challenge. Packing all the household stuff, loading it in a truck and unloading it in the new house, and then unpacking the goods in the new house can left anyone’s sweat. Moving companies can help in this work, but still many work has to be done by themselves. Instead of taking services of a moving company, doing all the work themselves, many people find an affordable alternative. Whether you do everything yourself or help a professional, it will be necessary to take care of a few things:
Use of the right size box: Pack heavy items such as books in small boxes, put light things such as clothes and pillows in large boxes. By putting heavy things in the big boxes, one can find it difficult to lift them and they are more likely to break things up. While packing, keep the heavy things down and light things up.
Packing of breakdown items: When packing easily broken things like plates, wrap each one in a packing paper. Then make five-six bundles and wrap them together in a packing paper. Pack them vertically, not stand them in boxes. Do not forget to put a bunch of papers for padding under them and above. While packing the bamboo, keep the paper between them before placing them in one another. Make these three-four bundles together and pack them together.

There will be special wooden crates for carrying. It can not even be laid down. If you are packing yourself then do Double packing of T.V i.e. TV Pack the box in another box, packing it with packing paper.
Packing of large home appliances: Large home appliances are hard to carry. They are not only heavy, many have to be uninstalled too. Almost all moving companies say that all large devices should be kept un-installed before their arrival. Many moving companies also offer services of professionals who can un-install them. Of course, it seems all too easy to say, wrongly packing these things can result in the fact that they do not work at the new place.
Packing of furniture and kitchen utensils: Before packing the bed, all its parts must be opened and seprate them. For this purpose the screw driver’s set should be ready. Keep a small bag with you in which all nuts and bolt can be kept so that they are not lost. On reaching the new place, this bag will easily get you all the stuff to fit the bed. Put all the things in the bed together in the truck. In the same way pack other furniture too. When packing the kitchen items, start with large utensils. Pack similar things together. Like spoons and knives can be packed together by making bundles together. This will facilitate the removal of things while reaching a new place.
