With all the stress and excitement that takes place during a move, it can be easy to forget those few essentials you need to make sure you have on the day of your move.
1. Cleaning Supplies
Be sure to stock up on cleaning supplies in the weeks leading up to your moving day. Once all your furniture and possessions are out of the house, you’ll likely need to give it one last clean-up.
Also, you never know if you’ll need to tidy up a mess in the home you’re moving into once you arrive. The previous owner might have left smudges on the windows, or tracked dirt into the house when moving out.
Before you move all of your items into your new house, you have the perfect opportunity to clean all the windows, baseboards, and other areas that are sometimes blocked by furniture.
A few supplies that are good to have on your moving day include:
- Window cleaners.
- Rubber gloves.
- Stain remover.
- Brooms and mops.
- Paper towel.
- Garbage bags.
…basically anything you’ll need to tidy up your old home or the one you’re moving into!
2. First Aid Kit
Moving often involves handling heavy objects that are sometimes awkward to carry. When that’s the case, you risk getting scrapes, bruises, cuts, or similar injuries. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a first-aid kit on hand, just in case there’s an accident and someone gets hurt.
Without a doubt, there will be some minor repairs you’ll need to make in your new home. This could include simple tasks like tightening screws on light fixtures and power outlets or more complex projects like making repairs to drywall or paint chips.
That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a tool kit with some basic tools like screwdrivers, levels, handsaws, and others. The sooner the work is done, the sooner you can relax in your new home!
When you’re caught up in all the commotion of moving, it’s easy to forget the essentials you use every day.
Be sure to pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, toilet paper, and other essential toiletries in a bag that’s separate from your other belongings. This way, you won’t have to worry about running out to the store and purchasing these basic essentials when you move into your new home.
5. Phone Chargers
Finally, there’s nothing worse than getting that “Low Battery” warning on your phone and not being able to do anything about it.
Make sure you remember to bring your phone charger with you. The last thing you want is to forget it at your old house or lose it amongst your many possessions.
There you have it! Remember these 5 essentials on your moving day and you’ll be able to save yourself some unnecessary stress!
