However, with good preparation, you have nothing to fear. Just go through the steps and you will be just fine as you see this relocation to its successful conclusion. 

Essentials like medicine and documents

Don’t forget your necessary medicine!

It is one thing to forget your charger. It might be frustrating, but it is not dangerous. However, mixing up or forgetting your medication could result in quite a lot of trouble. Therefore, be sure to carefully label your medication and recheck it from the checklist on the day before the move.

Furthermore, you should definitely check documentation such as car insurance, password, social security or ID card, etc. Things like that are best kept on your person, rather than in a truck.

Pack the most necessary of items

Speaking of necessities, there are also items that you probably haven’t packed yet simply due to the fact that you need them regularly. These are such items as:

  • Toiletries. As the final day at your current home comes to an end, be sure to pack up towels, hygiene and other toiletries from your bathroom.
  • Home appliances. With the day before the move finally here, you should also pack your frequently used home appliances and disassemble them.
  • Bedroom and other furniture. And while we talk of disassembling, you should also pay great care to finalize disassembly of your furniture, especially bedroom one which you probably left for last. If you find this to be too much work, just hire a company that has a good track record in such things (which you can check on Google or Yelp reviews).

Close your bank account and cancel your subscriptions

The day before the move is also the last day you have to do your unsubscriptions. These are easy to miss due to their convenience.

There are truly no words to how grateful we are for Whatever It Takes Moving. We thought initially that we could move ourselves but after having the help of the WIT Team we will never not hire movers again. I can’t recommend this company enough. They are incredibly organized, efficient and respectful. So thankful!
