Moving doesn’t have to be stressful! All it takes is a little planning, organization and great movers of course ;). One thing that can make your unpack a lot less stressful is an essentials box.

What is an Essentials Box?

An essentials box contains all of the important things you’ll want immediate access to once your move is complete. Just grab any small or medium sized box and label it “essentials box”. Whether you are moving across the street or across the country, we highly recommend that you consider what you will want to have on hand once the move is complete.

To some degree the contents of this box are subjective but there is definitely a list of things that should be in your essentials box. Here are our staff picks for your essentials box:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Utility Knife
  • Tool Set
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Towel
  • Snacks
  • Drinks
  • Toiletries
  • Pet Food
  • Flashlight
  • Garbage Bags
  • Paper Towel
  • Medication

We hope this makes your move less stressful!
