Moving and packing is a lot of work. It can be incredibly overwhelming and tempting to throw everything into boxes. This may seem like a good idea, but it can cause a lot more trouble in the end. From broken items to having no idea where anything is, you will regret that decision fairly quickly. To prevent snafus and frantic searches for important items, it’s a good idea to pack a “carry on” bag to keep with you.
As Saint Lucie West movers, we have years of experience and have picked up a few tips along the way. Here are some of the major items you need to be sure you pack:
- Everyday Essentials: Be sure to pack your everyday essential items in your overnight bag. You will want easy access to your toothbrush and toothpaste when it’s time for bed on moving day. It’s also a good idea to keep several days’ worth of clothes readily available just in case there are any hiccups with the move.
- Medications & Electronic Chargers: These are two items that are easy to forget but important to remember. Make sure you have easy access to any emergency medications or daily medications you need. You also don’t want to be on 1% when you realize your cell phone charger is in a moving box on the truck.
- Pet Supplies: Just like it’s vital to keep your everyday essentials with you, it’s just as important to pack your pet supplies separately. Pack plenty of food, their favorite toys/blankets, and leash and collar with you. The toys will help occupy them on the trip as well as help make a warm, familiar place for them at your new home.
