Shifting to a new home is a quite great job. Shifting day is huge and tiring, and if not well planned in the beginning, would lead to chaos. There is a lot to think right from the larger furniture to the tiniest of your personal belonging. Sometimes in the shifting chaos, we forget the smallest yet mandatory items. You need enough planning at the first hand before you initiate the shifting process, or else you will crash with headache and irritation at the end of the day. You can not leave everything on packers and movers dwarka So, I would suggest you make a list of items and divide the household into a different category. But, here is a list of some essential items which I would recommend all of you to take along with yourself while shifting.
01. Kitchen and Dining
As moving and shifting is a hard job, just make sure that you carry something to eat and drink with you. Take some fruits and protein bars too with you, so you receive some instant energy and don’t stay hungry. So, at the very initial level, you need at least the following things:
- Water bottle
- Dish soap
- Napkins and paper towel
- Coffee mug
- A trash can and bags
So, if you are shifting your house, you will obviously fix your bed, tables, and chairs. You would also be hanging pictures, any portrait, or any other thing on the walls. Carry a toolkit, which must include things like hammers and pliers compulsorily. Also, for security purposes, locks and keys are important for your basic items before shifting. Also, a security safe that will keep your very luxurious items safe while the handyman, movers, and packers move in and out of your place is necessary.
03. First Aid Kit
This is a very important thing to be carried. While shifting, unboxing, or fixing the furniture, you may get hurt, the kit would prove helpful.
You must be thinking, how does this count in the essential items. Yes, obviously it does count because shifting is a very chaotic job and people usually forget the very important things. So, a diary and a pen can help you keep a note of all your important doings. For example you may forget to give a tip to the packers and movers in delhi, so keeping a note of this may surely remind you. You will need to have a pair of scissors too for unboxing the items.
05. Charger and speakers
At the time of shifting, you need to call people to fix your items. Moving to a new place, you must be unknown to many things, so I am damn sure your phone’s battery is going to die soon. Also, without the Bluetooth speaker, it would become boring and more tiring. So, taking with yourself a charger and the speaker must be your first priority.
06. An overnight bag
This is a good idea as the day would be too busy for you to search for your essential primary items. Accumulate all the items in a single bag which you would need the following night. This bag may include the night suits, pajamas, and pair of clothes for the next day, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, cream, medicines, and your shower essentials.
07. Cleaning items
Take some cleaning supplies with you to your new house. Even if you have visited your house beforehand and the house was clean, still you will need the cleaning supplies. The packers and the movers move around will leave the dust and mud on the floor, so that would not be a problem if you already have some cleaning stuff with you.
08. Bedsheets and pillows
You will eagerly want a clean bed at least, after a whole tiring day. So, in your previous home if you already have clean pillows and bedsheets, then fold and keep them in the same overnight bag so that you need not open extra boxes and increase the efforts.
This is a personal requirement. Like if the house has enough windows than curtains are a must. No one wants neighbors poking their nose and not minding their business, while you are shifting or resting after shifting.
10. Other basic items
- Light bulbs
- Toilet paper
- Plastic bags
- Flashlights or Lamps
