- Packing tools
Even if you organized your belongings just how you planned, you might run into some things that did not make it into containers. You may also find some long-lost possessions hiding behind couches and other large items that are dismantled on the relocation day. Have some extra supplies with you for these cases, such as two cartons, markers, tape, padding materials, and a few others. The additional tools also prove helpful in case a container is damaged and needs to be taped again or replaced.
- Contact info
Most relocations have a lot of parties involved, so ensure you get the necessary contact information of each one. Begin with the relocating crew from the best movers in Vaughan since they will most probably haul the goods to the chosen destination in your absence. Move on to friends and family that are lending a helping hand. Also, ensure you can reach your new landlord as well as your old one. If you have pets or children that are with a babysitter or other party to care for them, get their phone numbers as well. You can share the information you collect with everyone involved with the process.
- Extra clothes
You will likely need a change of clothes no matter the weather conditions of your moving day. If you are changing homes in the summer, the sweat can soak your clothes and, in the winter, a few extra layers may be needed as you move along. Additional clothing is especially necessary during autumn when you could wake up to warm weather and end with a chilly evening.
- Food and water
You do not have to cook on the relocation day, but make sure you have snacks on the ready as well as some water. Choose foods that are packed with calories to make eating breaks quick and easy so that the process can move along. You will also need some bottles of water handy to keep yourself and the team hydrated, especially if you are working in hot weather.
