6 Essentials to Keep on Hand During Your Move

When you’re moving, you may not have everything you need readily available when you need it. By implementing these moving tips and stocking up on these moving essentials, it will allow you to transition seamlessly into your new home.

First Aid Box

Keeping a first aid box handy during the move is an essential part of the moving process. This way, if anyone needs first aid, you can quickly handle the situation.


Medications should also be kept on hand for all members of your family who need them. This could include a variety of prescription medications that will be available if the stress or change from moving prompts their need.

Important Keys

Of course, you will likely have the keys to your new home, but what about other concerns like keys to other areas of your new home such as side doors or private rooms? It’s important to keep these keys with you, so they don’t get lost or misplaced during the move.

Tool Kit

How often do you find yourself in need of a screwdriver to assemble and disassemble different items like shelves, appliances, etc. Keep a small toolkit handy for these types of situations. Also, scissors and/or a box-cutter are also your best bets for cutting the tape and string used in sealing and in opening your boxes.

Snacks & Drinks

With all the stress of moving, chances are you will find yourself slowly becoming dehydrated. Make sure that you properly hydrate yourself throughout the day. Also consider eating healthy snacks in order to maintain your energy level.

Mobile Device Charger

In today’s society, most families likely depend on their smartphones and tablets for communication. Then there’s the need to entertain the kids on long drives. Having a charger or multiport USB charger handy to keep your devices fully charged will pay huge dividends at the end of a long day.
