There’s no doubt about it: moving can be stressful and chaotic. From the time you decide to relocate to the moment the last box is unpacked, your life can become disorganized. Oftentimes, people get so caught up in the chaos of packing that they forget they’ll need a few daily essentials on hand. To help you make sure your move is less disorganized, Hedberg Moving Solutions has put together a helpful list of essential items to keep on hand during your move.


1. Packing Boxes

Most people who decide to relocate begin the packing process weeks in advance. When it comes time to move, however, there will be various small items you will still need to pack. Keep a few moving boxes on hand to ensure you don’t have to scurry around town searching for packing materials at the last minute. Your Minneapolis movers can help you determine the appropriate number of boxes for your move, so you are prepared when the time comes.


2. Tool Kit

A simple kit containing a hammer, scissors, screwdrivers, and pliers can really go a long way. You’d be surprised with how often you might use these items during your move. You’ll definitely need a pair of scissors to start unpacking boxes when you arrive at your new home! Screwdrivers and pliers are also useful when it comes time to reassemble furniture, and the same goes for a sturdy hammer.


3. Bathroom Supplies

Even in the midst of moving day, it’s a guarantee that someone will need to use the restroom. Keeping a roll or two of toilet paper handy will ensure you don’t have to run to the store at the last minute. You should also consider keeping toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes, soap, and other toiletries handy. On the day of your move, you can pack these items into small boxes, because they’ll be necessary in the days leading up to your relocation.


4. First Aid Kit

Moving furniture and boxes can be hazardous, and it’s no surprise when accidents occur. Consider keeping a first aid kit unpacked for use in the event of a minor injury. Even for something as small as a papercut, you’ll need to have bandages handy. Better to be safe than sorry, but hopefully, you won’t have to use it.


5. Garbage Bags

With so many packing supplies littering your home, there’s sure to be some trash lying around. Keeping garbage bags on hand will make it quick and easy for you to dispose of anything you don’t want to take with you or donate. Garbage backs are also an option for packing soft items such as pillows and comforters that you may want on your first night in your new home. They have a variety of uses during a move, so be sure to keep a few on hand.
