moving service from nationwide movers

According to the research over 11% of Americans move in any given year. You will find yourself surrounded by unpacked boxes on the first night in the new house. Locating what you need for just the first day at your new home might be difficult. Rather than opening multiple boxes and digging through all the content in search of just a few items, you can pack a single “essentials box.”

There are five categories of items you’ll want to include:

KITCHEN SUPPLIES:

Your kitchen essentials box should not include all your dinnerware or China, but it should contain enough to feed a single meal to your family. If you have five family members, for instance, you’ll want to pack:

  • Four glasses
  • Four knives
  • Four Forks
  • Four spoons
  • Four bowls
  • Four plates
  • One skillet
  • One pot
  • A multi-purpose cutting knife
  • Serving spoon

In addition to all these, you’ll need a few other everyday supplies for your kitchen:

  • Snacks
  • Beverages
  • Kitchen scissors
  • Garbage bags
  • Pet food and feeding bowls if you have an animal
  • A few food items for an easy breakfast and dinner

Important Tip: If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, then you must include a coffee pot, coffee mugs, and coffee grounds.

DAILY MEDICINES

Be sure to pack together the daily medicines that are taken by any of the family members, such as:

  • Prescription medications
  • Allergy medicines
  • Vitamins
  • Asthma medicines & inhalers

CLEANING SUPPLIES

Before you put away and unpack everything, you may want to clean surfaces or cupboards. You’ll also need to wash dishes for lunch or dinner. Include all these essentials:

  • Dishwashing liquids
  • A washcloth
  • A dustpan and small handheld broom
  • Clorox wipes
  • A couple of sponges

BATHROOM SUPPLIES

After a long moving work, the first place you’ll need to head in the bathroom. Make sure to include these in your essentials box:

  • Hand towels
  • Bath towels
  • Toilet papers
  • Wash clothes
  • Toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and shampoo.

EMERGENCY SUPPLIES

Small mishaps that may occur while your family is settling in, an emergency kit is important to deal with small mishaps. Pack your essentials box with:

  • Band-Aids
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Tweezers
  • Medical tape
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Matches
  • A small tool kit
  • A flashlight

So, there’s a lot of moving services happening. Long distance moving isn’t an easy experience, but this moving will be less hectic if you pack the essentials box as per your requirements.
