Materials On hand
Be sure to have tape, twine, padding, and spare boxes available on
moving day. It's also advisable to have a basic tool kit handy to
disassemble bulky items.
Pack Moving Day Items
Prepare a special box marked "Move Day". In it have the following: a
telephone, light bulbs, a tool kit, scissors, a flashlight, large
trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, and linens to make your bed.
On moving day, be considerate of neighbors. Don't block
driveways/sidewalks and don't leave trash and unwanted furniture
Before filling your new fridge with fresh food, be sure to empty,
defrost, and clean it.
It's good practice to leave your old home as clean as you would like
to find your new home.
