Pack & Put the Essentials Aside
There may be a couple of days between leaving the old house and moving into the new one. With long-distance moves, the chance is increased that your delivery date will be a few days after you arrive.
To avoid being stranded without things like a toothbrush and plates, set aside a box for essentials such as dishes, your phone charger, little appliances, and other home essentials. Also, take some time to pack items in a suitcase with a few changes of clothes and toiletries to avoid the unnecessary expense of buying everything you need before your items arrive at their destination. If you have daily medication to take, make sure to have that packed with you for the ride. Other important personal items to always keep it with you include your laptop, passport and other important documents.
