The moving process can be rather tedious. With so many arrangements and steps required, there is plenty to do, such as finding a new home, potentially selling the current home or preparing it for the end of the lease inspections, packing, downsizing, and other preparations can be overwhelming and stressful. To help you organize the move, we at Prodigy Moving & Storage would like to share a few basic tips to have ready before moving day.
Travel Bag Essentials when Moving
You probably won’t want to unpack everything that day after the chaos of moving day. A set of work clothes, pajamas, toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet paper, and so on. Have your laptop and tablets with a charger packed and keep your essentials. So those items won’t get buried in a pile of boxes, be sure the suitcase or bag with you on move day.
Prepare a First Box to Unpack
You’ll want to pack a box of essential items you’ll need on moving day in addition to having your personal items aside for the next morning. Have the basics for eating such as paper towels, plastic utensils, napkins, and maybe some cookware if your stove is ready to use. Be sure to have trash bags, scissors, a box cutter, and other tools you may want to have a for unpacking and furniture assembly. Also, make certain you have device chargers and power strips for your electronic devices.
Guidelines for Getting New Home Ready
Prepare your bathroom and kitchen for use if you have the capabilities to get into your new home before you move. Have the house cleaned, hang shower curtains, have the bathroom stocked with toilet paper and other sundries. This will give you a chance for a hot shower after your first night in the new house after moving.
Pack Out of Season Clothing First
When it comes to packing, you may not know where to begin. Pack the clothes out of season first, as you know you want to be needing them any time soon. Vacuum seal the packed clothing to take up less space. If the new home is available, you can take them over to the new house or consider a storage unit to help store the nonessentials in the unit.
Label Moving Boxes by Room
This simple step can be a major time saver and eliminate a lot of confusion. A color-coded label box system can help determine which box goes into the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, master bedroom/bath, pantry, and so on. Different color tape, box or plainly labeling the boxes are all ideas to make it easy.
