Moving Soon? Check out our "Moving Day" Things To Do

Storage Corner | November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

If you are reading this article, it means you are about to move to your new place! Here are a few of the most important things to consider both at your old house and the new place. There’s work ahead of you before you get to this moment, but we’re here to guide you through it so that all goes as seamlessly as possible.

First and foremost, you would have prepared your moving boxes: clothes, kitchen stuff, shoes, kid’s toys, makeup, electronics, you know, the whole thing. Maybe you’ll find that there are some things you now want to store in a third place (storage unit) near your new home.

Perhaps that snowboarding gear or tennis equipment you haven’t used lately and you don’t want it to mess with your new beautiful home.

That said, you’ll need to pick a moving company or rent a van. (Storage Corner offers a free moving truck when you move in!) so make sure you feel comfortable with your selection.

Before you leave your home 🚐 🏠

Don't forget to look at all your drawers and check every room, including the garage! A nice thing to do (optional) is to clean your home before you leave it. That’ll give you a nice feeling (trust the process) perhaps you even end up finding something you forgot to pack when cleaning. That's good, right?

Make sure all doors and windows are locked and secured. You may also want to take photos of the empty rooms to serve as proof of the condition of the house when you left. Finally, just make sure to return the keys and you should be good to go.

Essentials on Moving Day-Packing List ☑️

Don’t forget your moving bag with your ‘essentials’. Although some of them may seem very obvious, we have seen them being missed sometimes. Hunting in a box for something important after a long day is not what you need, that’s for sure.

Here is a list of essentials you want to keep separate and carry with you on important days (like moving to a new place!😍)

  • Important documents (e.g. passport, marriage certificate, birth certificate, any record containing bank account information)
  • Credit card
  • Medicines
  • Mobile phone and charger
  • Laptop and charger
  • Toilet paper
  • Change clothes (one piece for each family member)
  • Snacks and water (children and pets)
  • Children’s special toys or blankets (if they can’t bear to pack them)
  • Jewelry
  • Flashlight
  • Measuring Tape
  • Toolbox
  • Garbage bag
  • Tissue
  • Cash
  • Any other valuables or irreplaceable items

Conclusion 🙌🏻

And that’s it for now! We hope you find value in these recommendations, and please always remember you are in control and more importantly: relax and enjoy the process! 😌💞
