Importance of an Essentials Box for Moving

An essentials box is a box with essentials that you will need a few days before and after moving to or from Edmonton, AB or anywhere else in Canada.

An essentials box is packed when everything else is packed. While packing this box you should always keep in mind the items that you will require when you first reach your new place. When emptying your shelves and cupboards for packing, just keep all the essential items on one side. An essentials box will help you to survive while your move is taking place; when your goods are in transit, and your first day at your new place without having to unpack everything all at once.

Some people prefer to pack one essential box for every room of their home when they’re moving while, others pack just one essentials box. Although it really depends on your needs and requirements, there are some items that you should keep in an essentials box.

What should be added to an essentials box?

Toiletries should all go in the essentials box. If you are short on toiletries then go to the nearest store and buy them before your moving process begins. Items such as toilet paper, soap, soap dish and a hand wash are a must. You can also add some snacks in this box such as jam, butter, bread, drinks and coffee packets. Do not forget to add few dishes, such as plates and mugs, in this box as you will need them right away once you reach your new place. Small scissors or a knife should also be packed in this box as they can come in handy. Also pack a flashlight, just in case there are issues with power at your new place.
