A moving day is a big day for everyone involved. Not only can it be physically taxing, but there can be an emotional element to the day too. When you are leaving somewhere that has been your home for a long time, it can be a difficult transition, even if you want to make the move.On top of that, there is all of the moving, organizing, and making sure the house is clean, tidy and nothing is left behind before you begin your journey to your new destination.
If you want to help the day go off without a hitch, there are some things you can prepare for your moving day to help.This piece will take a look at what they are!
The first thing you should think about for your moving day is being comfortable.
It is most likely going to be a long day if you are doing everything in one go, and you will not want anything to make you feel restricted or uncomfortable.
Plan your outfit for the day accordingly, and factor in things like moving around a lot, a long trip in the car or traveling somewhere else, and being on your feet for a lot of time.
That being said, if you research moving companies and hire a reputable one, this will take a lot of the stress and strain out of the day, allowing you to sit back and chill a little more.
Snacks and Drinks
Having your stomach grumble or getting a headache from not drinking enough water is not fun at the best of times, but this is definitely something you want to avoid when you A) No longer have access to a kitchen, and B) Your kitchen is packed away.
Top tip: Create a box that is for essentials such as the things you will be using last in the day. This could be a small number of mugs, coffee, a kettle, a knife, scissors and other bits and pieces that you could use when you are moving, but also when you get to the other end!
This can also include items such as your toothbrush, toiletries, and a pillow too.
Making sure there are adequate snacks and drinks on hand will help you avoid feeling “hangry”, any hunger pangs, or also feeling lightheaded or groggy!
Another thing that can be very beneficial to have on hand on moving day is packing extras. If you have done everything with immaculate preparation, you might find less need for packing extras. However, it is always great to have them on hand in case a box splits or you find you did leave something in the bathroom on your third check!
