How to Build a Moving Day Kit for Your Move
December 10, 2015
Moving day can be hectic, even with the services of an experienced moving team. This is especially the case if you don’t choose unpacking services as part of your relocation services. If you’ll be unpacking your own boxes, it’s imperative to create a “moving day kit” to keep you and your family happy and comfortable until you’ve had the chance to unpack your belongings. Here are some basics for your kit:
- First Aid Kit — You’ll definitely want to include a first aid kit in your moving day box. In addition, don’t forget to bring all necessary medications.
- Bathroom Supplies — Toilet paper, a plunger, a shower curtain, toiletries, and towels are the least you’ll need for the first night in your new home.
- Electronic Necessities — Cell phones, tablets, and laptops are all included in this category. Make sure to bring all chargers as well so you don’t run out of juice.
- Bedding — If your bed isn’t delivered on the first day in your new home, bring an air mattress. Either way, you’ll need pillows, sheets, and blankets also.
- Entertainment — This is especially important if you’re moving with kids, even though adults need to have fun, too! Include boredom-busters like books, cards, and board games in your moving kit.
- Snacks — Even if you’ll be dining out or getting food delivered, bring some snacks like fresh fruit and Ziploc bags filled with trail mix. Bottled water is a must — and don’t forget paper plates, napkins and plastic utensils.
- Cleaning Supplies — You’ll probably want to do a little tidying up on your first night in a new home. You don’t need to include your entire housekeeping arsenal in your moving kit, but it is recommended to pack an all-purpose spray cleaner, dishwashing liquid, paper towels, and trash bags.
- Pet Supplies — Don’t forget about your pets! Pack pet food, food and water bowls, a collar/leash (if you have a dog), and a toy or two with which your pet is familiar.
