When packing for your move, it is important to pack a special box with all the essentials you will need on move day. This box will stay with you throughout your entire move and will be a go-to for all your important items on move day. Learn more about the items you should pack in your essentials box for your upcoming move!
Pack any toiletries that you use daily such as: toothbrushes, hairbrushes, deodorant, contact lenses, medicine, toilet paper, etc. These are items you will need accessible to you throughout the day.
- Change of Clothes
Bring a spare change of clothes just in case the clothes you wear during the move get soiled. Whether it be from dirt, sweat, rain, etc. a change of clothes is nice to have just in case of an emergency.
It is important to keep your energy up during the day! Pack a few snacks and bottles of water or sports drink to stay hydrated. Some good snacks that will give you energy are protein bars, beef jerky, granola, etc.
If you have a long car ride ahead of you, or children to keep entertained on move day, be sure to pack a few items to keep the boredom at bay. Try bringing a tablet, handheld gaming console, books, coloring books, a deck of cards, etc.
- Money and other Important Documents
Keep all cash, checks, credit and debit cards, and money orders on your person always. Be sure that all your money and other important documents you may need on move day are accessible and secured on your person.
An essentials box can be a lifesaver during a move! Make sure to keep this box separated from your other boxes. Mark it as “do not touch” or place it in your car so your movers know not to include it with the rest of your shipment.
