Moving Day Essentials To Have On Hand

Local Moving Company, Moving Essentials, Moving Tips

It’s almost moving day, and you may think you have everything you need. However, there are essentials you should have on hand for quick access in case something doesn’t go quite as planned.  Here is a list of essential moving items that keep things running smoothly on moving day.

Basic Cleaning Supplies

While the previous owners may have cleaned up the place before you moved in, the level of cleanliness may not be up to your standards. You’ll want to do your own clean-up to ensure all the dust bunnies are vacuumed and the counters have been disinfected. For that, you’ll need to bring a box of basic cleaning supplies with you in your own vehicle so you can get started right away.

  • Paper towels
  • Multi-purpose cleaning spray and sanitizing wipes
  • Handheld vacuum
  • Rags and sponges
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • Laundry detergent
  • Broom and dustpan
  • Toilet bowl cleaner

Batteries are consistently one of the most overlooked items in regards to packing for your move. As soon as you move in, you’ll want to watch some TV with the remote, get the ceiling fans going, stock your flashlights, and make sure the fire alarms are all set. For that, you’ll need batteries of all sizes and kinds. Stock up on a multi-pack before you move in and keep them packed separately for quick access.


The first days in your new home will require a lot of handy-work on your part. You’ll need your toolkit to hang pictures on the walls, open up stubborn boxes, tighten door pulls, and measure rooms for furniture placement. Make sure your toolkit is stocked with:

  • Hammer
  • Multiple-sized screwdrivers
  • Measuring tape
  • Pliers
  • Utility knife (to open boxes)

All your electronics will need to be charged, so be sure to pack all chargers in a box in individual bags that are clearly labeled. Throwing them in random boxes will become infuriating on moving day when you need your battery-drained laptop and can’t find the right charger to go with it. Moving day is never fun with a dead phone for you or a dead tablet for the kids.
