Moving day tips!

Navigating the intricacies of moving to a new home, whether it’s down the street or across the globe, can feel like an overwhelming feat. It’s a process that demands meticulous planning and months of preparation to ensure a smooth transition. One thing is for sure: even the tiniest oversight can snowball into a major hiccup. That’s why, drawing from the wealth of wisdom she’s accumulated through her many moves, my dear mum has shared her insights and put together a list of must-have items that she swears by on moving day.

Cleaning Essentials – Moving tips

Cleaning supplies are often the unsung heroes of moving day. If you underestimate the importance of having them readily available, you might just find yourself unravelling your meticulously crafted packing plan. While you’re making the shift to your new abode, it’s essential to anticipate the dust and grime that can accumulate during the process. Therefore, having your cleaning gear within arm’s reach can save you from some anxiety-inducing messes.

Aside from quick cleanups, don’t forget to stock up on everyday necessities like towels, tissues, and trusty old cloths. Unpacking can sometimes feel like a never-ending marathon, so having these cleaning essentials at the ready will help keep both your new place and your sanity feeling fresh and cosy.

Here’s a checklist of cleaning essentials you’ll want to keep close:

  • Hand soap
  • Toilet paper
  •  Toothpaste/Toothbrush
  •  Kitchen roll
  • Hand towels
  • Bath towels
  • Bathroom essentials (soap, deodorant)

Personal Essential Moving tips

Moving can be a more extended process than you initially anticipated, especially if you’re juggling work during your move week. That’s why we recommend packing a bag of essentials that will come to your rescue when needed most.

In your personal essentials bag, consider including the following:

  • Phone charger
  • A change of clothing
  • Any necessary medications
  • A toolkit for those unexpected fix-it moments
  • Bottles of water to stay hydrated
  • Easy-to-make food supplies like sandwiches and snacks
