Start packing items and disassembling furniture

Packing can make or break your move so allow plenty of time. Start packing about a week before you move, beginning with the items rarely used (such as books, dvds, garage) and finish the night before with the most frequently used items (such as the kitchen). Any furniture you can live without should be disassembled in advance and screws etc stored carefully. Get more tips about packing up your house to move….
