Even with months of planning and weeks of packing in preparation, the long hours on moving day can be exhausting. The last thing that you need is to get into your new home and to not know where your most essential items are. In the confusion of packing last minute items, many items can get misplaced, and your necessities for the first night get buried in a box in the wrong room. We make sure to pack and organize your most needed items to make the end of a long day as easy as possible.
Many of the things you will need on the first night, are the same ones you used right before the movers arrived, like toiletries, extra clothes, cellphone charger, keys, wallet, etc. These items will be packed last, and opened first when arriving at your new home. This is the easiest way to account for your living essentials the first night, including the ones still needed during the day of the move.
There are some items that can be packed away earlier in the moving process that are still essential to your first night or the following morning. One of the most common things that people forget about is their bed! Packing and labeling all bed pieces, clean linens, and the tools needed to assemble your bed will need to be among the first things that are easily accessible upon arrival. With such a long day, the sunset comes earlier than many people expect. This is why it’s important to make sure you pack lightbulbs and flash lights in a convenient location. Finishing a move is always tough, but doing it in the dark is even tougher!
We often see that our clients moving plans omit food breaks throughout the day. We understand that most people want to get the move over with as soon as possible, but eating throughout the day is important too. This is why we always make sure to pack a box full of snacks, canned foods, and easy meals with some cooking utensils for our clients on the first day. Of course, water to stay hydrated should be at the ready as well!
Every individual and family that we help move has unique needs. We accommodate all types of situations, including making sure that your pet is as comfortable as you are for the first night with water, food, bed and a safe place in this new environment as well. Our senior moving clients often require medication or mobility aides to be among the most essential items needed first in their new home.
