Packing and Moving
As you prepare to move into your new home, organize your packing to make it easy for you to get settled in. Purchase packing supplies and start packing non-essential items early. Label each box with a general description of its contents, and indicate which room in your new home it should be taken to.
If you plan to hire movers, make sure to contact them at least 3 weeks prior to your scheduled move. At the end of each month, moving companies tend to get booked quickly, so plan ahead!
As you approach the time of your move, plan to pack an emergency supplies box. Move this box in your car so you have access to it immediately upon arrival at your new home.
We recommend you put the following items in your emergency box:
- Paper plates and plastic utensils
- Napkins and/or wetnaps
- Tape, scissors and pens
- Paper towels
- Roll of toilet paper
- Small snacks
- Pet treats, water dish and food for your pet
- A small first aid kit
- Bottled water or other drinks
- Any other essentials you may need immediately at your destination
