Moving day must haves
Moving home can be a big task (we know!), but with the right tools and the right preparation, you can help make sure your moving day runs smoothly.
Check out our experts list below of the moving day ‘must-have’ tools that can come in handy on the big day:
1. Moving boxes: You'll need sturdy boxes in various sizes to pack your belongings. Make sure to label them clearly with the contents and the room they belong to.
2. Packing materials: Stock up on packing materials like bubble wrap, packing paper, and packing tape to protect fragile items.
3. Moving blankets and furniture covers: These can help protect your furniture from scratches and damage during the move.
4. Hand truck or dolly: A hand truck or dolly can make moving heavy items much easier. It's especially useful for moving appliances or large furniture.
5. Basic tools: Have a set of basic tools like screwdrivers, pliers, and a utility knife on hand. You may need them to disassemble furniture or remove any fixtures.
6. Moving straps or rope: These can be useful for securing items in the moving truck and making sure they don't shift during transportation.
7. Plastic sheets or dust covers: In case of bad weather on moving day, tarps or plastic sheets can help protect your belongings from getting wet.
8. Moving labels and markers: Having labels and markers available will help you easily identify the contents of each box and which room they belong to.
9. Cleaning supplies: Before you leave your old home or after you move into your new home, you may want to clean the space. Have cleaning supplies like cleaners, brooms, mops, and wipes ready.
Remember, this is just a general list and your specific needs may vary depending on the size of your move and your preferences. It's always a good idea to plan and prepare well in advance to avoid any last-minute rush or stress.
