We’ve said it before, when it comes to home moving, organization is key to a successful moving day!

If you stay organized before, during, and after the move, you will find it to be a much more seamless – and less stressful – transition into your new home With more than 8 million moves under our belts, we’ve seen the good and the bad on moving day. Those with who are more organized tend to be the ones who have the best moving experiences..

Like anything, however, this is much easier said than done. Everything from finding a new home to taking care of your utilities, bills, packing up your old home, cleaning, hiring professional movers, and more – there is quite a bit to think about as you get ready to move. These are often the high-level priority items in a home move, but what about the overlooked areas of moving?

We call these “overlooked moving essentials”, and they are just that – essential. These are things you’ll want with you before moving day and when you arrive at your new home.

Moving checklist

Nothing says “organization” like a moving checklist, and we can’t stress the importance of these enough. This is an organized plan on how you’re going to attack your move, starting from a few weeks before your move all the way through moving day and into your new home.

If you’re asking yourself how you’re supposed to come up with a moving checklist, don’t worry – we’ve made one for you.

Tool kit

In a perfect world, you can move into your new home with zero issues. But that is a perfect world, and this is the real one.

Having a tool kit handy as you start transitioning into your new home will be extremely handy for making any quick fixes that are needed around the house.

Cleaning supplies

It’s not much of a secret that the moving process can be a little messy. This makes having cleaning supplies readily available an important part of moving so that if a mess happens, you’re able to clean it up right away.

Clorox wipes, toilet cleaner, laundry soap, cleaning spray, and more are all good ideas to have purchased prior to moving day.

Plastic bags

Plastic bags are a cheap, versatile, and easy tool on moving day. Everything from carrying loose items that didn’t make it in the packing process to quickly disposing of trash can be handled with plastic bags, so have a stash of them ready.

Batteries and chargers

We can’t live without technology anymore, right? Well, that makes chargers and batteries essential. You want to make sure that when you’re moving into your new home, you still can access phones, tablets, laptops, remotes, clocks, and various home appliances.

These are just a few important and often overlooked moving essentials you’ll want to keep in mind as you’re getting ready for moving day. To find more helpful moving tips to make your moving day a success, search through our company blog or visit our website!
