  • It should be made sure that you do not overload your cartons and the total weight should not exceed 50 pounds.
  • Television, refrigerators, computer and other electronic items should be packed in their own cartons. All of these items must be carefully dismantled and their screws must be attached with them. Don't forget to label these items.
  • Cartons should be selected according to the articles to be packed. Light items like canned food, books, cassettes or CD's should be packed in small cartons whereas large items such as picture portrait, mirrors, clock, lampshades should be kept in special cartons.
