Packing and Loading
With a DITY move you assume the responsibility for packing as well as loading and unloading your belongings (unless you contract with a full service mover). This is no small task but can be accomplished smoothly with some planning and the proper supplies.
Remember that the cost of packing supplies can be listed as an expense when you file for reimbursement from the government. Make sure you keep all of the receipts for items you purchased. Establishing a file for them is a good idea.
