Essentials Required When Moving Home

It can be hard to survive when all your belongings are wrapped up and stored in boxes. It can be challenging to work out what you need to keep at a safe distance. It can feel as though everything is useful. It didn’t serve a purpose you probably wouldn’t have it in the first place. The following article lists the essentials that you should keep close to your fingertips.


Water, it’s that clear stuff you are meant to drink every day can come in handy. If you drink water straight out of the faucet then move on to the next suggestion but for unlucky readers please continue on. If you need a filtering system to make it palatable it’s only fitting that you do not pack it up. Keep in your car so it’s easy to grab and transport to your brand new kitchen. It shouldn’t be too much in the way in the corner of a bench. You’ll need to keep hydrated whilst packing and unpacking. Little extras you should keep in mind; cups, bottles, dried snacks as they don’t require utensils and basic food necessities.


In this day and age it’s hard to find someone without one piece of technology on their body but it never hurts to double check. You will obviously need your cell phone. You want to be easily contactable, specifically if you working with a moving company. You’ll also need some simple technology like flashlights and spare batteries, light bulbs. When you are remembering all of these big things please don’t forget the little thinks, i.e. keys, money and toilet paper.

Cleaning supplies

It is so much easier to clean an empty room. Do yourself a favour and take the time to clean your new house before you fill it with your belongings. Basic cleaning products that will come in handy include; Paper towels/ cloths, all-purpose cleaner product, buckets, sponges, broom, dustpan and basic towels for the kitchen.

Night needs

To spend the night in your new humble abode you’ll need some bedding. Make a check list which will include; pillows, bath towels, toiletries and blankets. You want to be able to make your bed fast after such a long day or moving. If you know your new is quite light in the morning add curtains to your list. You want your first night in your new home to be positive. This is where you are going to be living after all.

Finally, remember to label every box. If you have to temporarily put some things in storage, Fort Knox for example, you want to know exactly what you’ve left there. Make your life easier and work with categories so you don’t have to search through every box for a pair of scissors. It’s normally easier to work by room and then by contents. Don’t freak out if you don’t leave something out you need, take a moment to calm down an you’ll remember where you put it.
