Buying wrapping paper is advisable as packing paper is acid and ink free and big enough to cover or pack most of your items.

Wrapping paper packing ensures that the things placed in the box don’t shift or move during transit. A packing paper can provide necessary support to the things packed in the boxes when compared to newspapers as they are relatively thin, soft and crumbles tightly.
4. Self Dismantle / Assemble Simple Furniture
Larger furniture can make your move a little difficult as you will have to fit through small corridors, doors, stairway etc and sometimes crouching through such small spaces can damage your furniture. Big furniture also takes enormous amount of space in the truck which can therefore make your move costly. Therefore it’s recommended that if you can self dismantle and assemble simple furniture, it can help you save money on transportation as well as on a carpenter. Shifting out assembled furniture is easy, requires less labor and also protects your furniture from wear and tear.

5. Perform drilling work by own
Drilling work if not done properly can damage the paint and the walls to a great extent. You can seek the help of movers and packers for this, but it can be risky as they may not be professional or may be in a hurry to finish off the task quickly. However, you can perform basic drilling work on your own because some job is pretty simple and can be done by own. Wall drilling is a basic thing and can be managed by anyone who is good enough with tools. Drilling out the crown molding, painting, art work etc can be done easily by you. So why spend unnecessarily on the things which can be performed by you.
6. Cleaning your own house after relocation
Moving in to your new space is always exciting but before you move in or before your stuff arrives it’s always recommended to clean it. The first and foremost part of the house which you would like to get started with is the kitchen. Once you are done with the fridge, stove, sink, kitchen cabinets, floor etc you can move on to the living room as that’s the place where your family is going to spend most of the time. You can then clean the washrooms and the bedrooms. Cleaning will take time and you need to give it couple of days and obviously with the help of your family members.
