Moving Day Essentials Checklist

Last updated 6 years ago

Making a plan before you start the moving process will drastically reduce the stress of relocating. Once you have contacted a moving company and have chosen a moving date, you can create a checklist to help you get ready. Include the following moving essentials on your list to help you properly prepare for your relocation:

  1. Sturdy Boxes
    Boxes should definitely be at the top of your checklist because they are the foundation of the entire move. Buy some strong boxes from the moving company so you can pack all of your belongings securely before the movers arrive to transport them. Strong boxes can offer the necessary protection to keep your items safe during a move.
  2. Packing Tape
    Although you might want to use your move as a chance to get rid of some of your old rolls of ordinary tape, you should invest in some quality packing tape. Just like the boxes, tape is an important aspect of keeping your belongings intact when they are traveling to your new home. Packing tape reinforces the strength of the boxes so you will not have any issues with broken belongings.
  3. Packing Peanuts or Paper
    Stock up on packing peanuts or paper that you can use to fill in the empty spaces in your boxes. These add an extra barrier of protection for all of your belongings. You can use packing paper to wrap delicate items, while packing peanuts can be used to fill any empty spaces in each box to ensure that your items remain in their original condition.
