Moving? Pack These Essentials

Moving? Pack These Essentials

If you have moved before, you will know that moving is stressful and can be very hectic especially if you're doing it at the last minute. With so many things to keep in mind, it’s easy enough to overlook some of the most important details when preparing to move and that is to pack a “first-night” box. A first-night box is a bag full of important everyday items that you might need immediately after moving to an empty new home.

What are you moving?

If you need a list of what to pack on your first-night box, our movers Singapore put together a list of which essential items are the most important during your first few nights.  

Personal items and toiletries

Moving is dirty work - you will get sweaty and sticky. So, make sure that you have your favourite toiletries ready. Gather the following items to pack in your essentials box:

  • Toothbrush

  • Toothpaste

  • Shampoo
  • Body soap

  • Moisturizer

  • Clean towel

  • Toilet paper

  • Hand sanitiser

  • A pair of pyjamas

  • Wash clothes for cleaning up

Bedtime essentials 

Start your new life with a good night's sleep, make sure you have these items handy on your first night in your new home:

  • Bed linens for everyone

  • Pillows

  • Blankets

  • Your kid's favourite teddy bear

  • Change of clothes 

  • Airpump for air mattress

Daily medications

Whether prescription or OTC, it is of paramount importance to have quick access to medications you take regularly. Don’t forget to have:

  • Pain relievers

  • Antihistamines

  • Anti-itch ointments

  • Vitamins and supplements 

  • Your family members’ prescription medicines

Food, beverages and kitchen supplies

Trust us when we say that you will feel too physically drained after a strenuous day to organize your kitchen or to go out to eat. Make it easy on yourself and have some easy snacks and meals on hand - prepare something nutritious such as protein bars, dried fruit, peanut butter, bread or jelly. Ordering pizza or eating out in local eateries is also a good option. Don’t forget to bring tea bags, instant coffee and bottled water to keep everyone hydrated and a few basics like an electric kettle, kitchen knife or some basic utensils to eat comfortably. 

Important documents 

Personal documents such as school records, birth certificates, insurance policies, title documents,  licenses and other sensitive records should relocate with you. Pack these together and keep these documents with you, instead of moving these together with your other items on the moving truck. You can also back up all key documents digitally. 

Electronics and chargers

In today’s world, it’s almost impossible to get by without technology, so be certain you’re toting your personal items such as your electronics in your first night kit. Consider using sealable bags to keep them from getting damaged.

  • Computer

  • Phones and tablet

  • Portable alarm clock

  • Charger for phones, laptops and tablet

  • Hairdryer 

Cleaning supplies

Although the previous homeowner might have cleaned up the place for you, you still probably want to do some basic cleaning before you start unpacking your moving boxes, be sure to have:

  • Cleaning gloves

  • Paper towels

  • Multipurpose cleaning spray

  • Rags and sponges 

  • Mop

  • Dishwash detergent and laundry detergent

Having these essentials in your first-night kit you’ll be prepared for any eventuality. Whether moving to a new home or to a new neighbourhood, let our professional Singapore Movers help you.

Will recommend to anyone looking for a responsive and responsible moving service! 6 stars service! I needed to move my office urgently and Faith Relocation responded quickly and was consistently responsive with updates! The moving was made smooth with great teamwork by the entire team lead by Andy. Each of the team member handled our items with utmost care. We overestimated what was possible to fit within a truck and Andy , knowing we had a tight dateline, immediately went to make sure that he could make 2 trips. Even though was not around with the movers, she followed up twice to ensure that all was good. Andy made sure that the move was smooth and organised. Extremely pleased and impress with Faith Relocation 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
