Things That Come In Handy On Moving Day

Relocation/moving is one of the top listed factors in a stressful life. It can be terrible trying to organize everything all at once, or at the last minute. That’s why it’s so important to plan ahead! Here is a list of things you should plan to do in advance, have available, or think about prior to actually packing up your worldly possessions:

  1. Tools (hammer, screwdriver, etc)
  2. Stackable storage bins
  3. Packing material
  4. Thick, heavy blankets (stops scratches on furniture)
  5. An overnight bag with clothes, essentials, and snacks
  6. Label stickers and a black marker
  7. Cleaning supplies
  8. Flashlight
  9. Empty boxes (free from the local grocery store)
  10. Vacuum seal bags (for clothing)
  11. Small plastic bags for parts (don’t want to lose a screw!)
  12. Zip ties for audio/video/gaming cables
  13. Change of address/mail forwarding forms
  14. An empty fridge (scarf down on food so nothing spoils)
  15. Put everything in the appropriate room (no dishes on the night stand)

Of course, the best way to ensure you have a successful move is to let the professional movers handle everything for you!
