Moving is a huge life event. It takes time, money, and there’s a lot of emotions that go into it. When you move as a family, it can be so much more cumbersome. The best way to deal with this huge move, consider this list of essentials.

Documents

You have to move many document from your local area to a new one. This includes medical records, pet information, contracts, and anything else you need for the travel part of your move. Place all documents into a folder and label it, so you can find what you need when you need it.

Packing Items

Unless you use our packing services, you will need packing supplies.

This includes:

  • Boxes
  • Packing paper
  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing peanuts

You can get everything you need from us, and come back for more when you need. Keep in mind that most people do not purchase enough supplies for their move the first time. Having an easy place to get the rest of the supplies is needed.

Pack Medication First

Medications are important! You don’t want to go a day without your daily medication or you may end up very sick with withdrawals. You also don’t want to be caught sick and unable to find the medication you need to feel better while you are moving. Make sure you have medication for yourself, for family members, and pets.

Children Activities

Moving is not fun for children at all. Sure, they think it’s exciting at first. However, as you get busier and busier with the process, they get bored of it. You can help them by having a lot of activities available for them. Start an activity box, so you can refer to it when you’re busy doing something and your children are pulling on you to entertain them. Put a variety of items in the box, so they don’t get too bored of the box too.

Cleaning Supplies

Don’t pack your cleaning supplies. Just keep them out, so you can clean the house before you make your final exit. Having everything you need in one spot will make the process of cleaning it for the last time easy and quick.

Tip: Some people clean as they move items out of the home. This can save a lot of time. Consider it.

Food and Drinks

Moving is exhausting. Keep your energy up. You can do this with food and drinks. Make sure the foods are healthy and the drinks hydrated. You need those extra nutrients, vitamins, and minerals because your body is working hard. Avoid the caffeine and alcohol, since they can dehydrate you.

Pack What You Need Daly in Suitcases

Since you won’t want to dig through boxes as soon as you get to your new home or you may not get to your new home for a couple of days, pack what you need on a daily basis in a suitcase.

This includes:

  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Hairbrush
  • Body soap
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • PJs
  • A couple outfits

This way you will be comfortable until you get to your new home and unpack.

Now that you have this list, go ahead and use it to make your next move a successful! You will love the way this helps you keep everything moving smoothly and easy.
