Everyone knows the regular moving tips: Research the mover, use good packing materials, have a plan, have cleaning materials ready, and the list goes on and on. But there are other tips – more obscure tips that you should know. Some of these tips may even seem obvious once you read them, but they do not enter your mind immediately when you think of moving tips. Here are the top 3 unknown moving tips:
When you move you should always have an emergency backpack ready. It should be filled with at least 2 water bottles, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, and a change of clothing. You may be asking yourself, “But I have all of these things in my luggage”? But the truth is, even though you can put them in your luggage, with a backpack you have easy access. These are the items that when you need them, you won’t want to rummage through your luggage for them. For example, you just moved a large screen TV up a stairwell; you need water, just reach into your backpack instead of looking for the boxes where you put the water.
While cleaning your new home you amass a large amount of sweat. Instead of looking through all of the boxes for your clothes, just reach into your backpack for a new shirt.
