You have a lot to do when you are planning your Newmarket move. Finding a new home, packing the old home, getting the dates and the timing right can be crazy. That makes it very easy to forget some of the essential things that you will need for the moving day itself. Here are some things that you really need to remember for moving day. Use this list to make a checklist for yourself for your own moving day.
Extra Moving Supplies
Even if you have to make sure to get everything packed and ready before the day has arrived, you are going to need some extra moving supplies the day of your move. You may find items in a deep, dark closet corner or a moving box may break open. Either way, have some boxes, bubble wrap, packing peanuts and tape on hand to handle any last minute needs. You don’t want to have to take a break to go pick up things that you need.
Food and Drinks
Moving is hungry and thirsty business. Whether you are having professional movers perform your move or you have friends and family helping, you are going to want to have some snacks and plenty of water around for everyone to drink.
You also want to make sure to have some road snacks and drinks available as well. This is particularly true if you have a long drive to get from your old home to your new one. Try to keep the refreshments seasonal. Hot chocolate if you are moving in the cold or lemonade for the summer months. Not to mention plenty of water!
Once your old home is empty you are going to need to give it a thorough cleaning. To do that you are going to need to have the proper cleaning tools and supplies on hand. It won’t do you any good if they are all tied up in the moving truck with the cleaning supplies in boxes ready to move.
Make sure to leave yourself enough supplies to get the cleaning job in your old home done. You probably don’t need to leave everything, but have some on hand so you don’t have to stop to pick them up.
Pet and Children Supplies
Moving can be exciting and scary for both children and pets. In order to help them be more comfortable you may want to keep some toys or other methods for them to entertain themselves while the move is happening.
Don’t pack everything. Leave some of your children’s favorite toys in a place where they can access them. This lets them feel more in control and also allows them to stay out from underfoot of all the moving going on.
Remember to keep dishes for water and food for your pets as well!
