The Essentials for daily living…Some examples are snacks, toilet paper, paper towel, phone chargers, a change of clothes, toothbrush/toothpaste, and your kids’ favorite toys. Additionally, medications, important paperwork (e.g., birth certificates and social security cards), and anything highly valuable or sentimental (jewelry, credit cards, bank account information, etc.) should be set aside. On your moving day, place these essential items in a box or bag that you’ll carry with you to your new home.

- Is your home 1,500 square feet or larger?
- Do you have any large or bulky items (e.g., pool tables, gunsafes or pianos) that may be difficult to move safely and securely?
- Does your home have any narrow hallways, doorways, or stairways that furniture cannot fit through?
- Will movers have difficulty parking a 26 ft. truck close to your home?
- Will they have a long walk?
- Are you moving out of state?
- Give yourself enough time to pack carefully without feeling overwhelmed.
- Try and purchase your packing materials prior to pack day to allow for a smooth transition.
- Decide the order in which you’ll be packing up your home. The most common way is to pack up each room separately.
