• Also keep the glass vertically and not flat on the surface.

• Ensure that valuables are packed separately.
• Use a smaller box for packing heavy stuff. The heavier the iteam, the smaller the box should be.
• Labeling your boxes will help you while you unpack and will help you to place boxes in their proper room on the first day of arrival.
• Keep your essentials like instant coffee, sugar, tea, soap, towels, toothpaste, tooth brush and other toiletry items in your hand bag. So that as soon as you arrive at your new home you can use them.
