 Todds Removals Making Moving House in Sudbury Easier By Packing an Essentials Box We at Todds Removals Ltd suggest you pack an essentials box on moving day.

It should be the last box on the removal lorry and the first box off and should contain all those items you will need on arrival at your new home. Remember it may be late by the time your items are unloaded from the lorry and the last thing you will want to be doing is opening lots of boxes and having to search through them all to find those essential items. We suggest you pack the following items in your essentials box:

  • Tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cups, spoons and the kettle
  • Soft drinks and snacks
  • Pet food and bowls
  • Toilet roll, soap and towel
  • Torch
  • Light bulbs
  • Small took kit
  • Scissors
  • Pen and notebook
  • Mobile phone charger
  • Bin bags
  • Cleaning materials
  • First aid kit including headache medication
  • Local takeaway menus and phone numbers
  • Bottle of Champagne, glasses and corkscrew

Other items you will need on your first night/morning in your new house should all be packed in boxes and clearly labelled, these items may include:

  • Bedding – Duvets, sheets and pillows – leave the covers on when packing
  • Nightwear
  • Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Breakfast cereals, bowls and spoons

At Todds Removals Ltd we use either hanging boxes or wardrobe rails so all your clothes should reach you new home ready to wear and as long as your wardrobes are assembled our removal crew will even hang them for you.

We recommend you pack the following items and take them with you in your car:

  • Cheque books, bank cards, purses and wallets
  • Important paperwork relative to your house sale/purchase
  • Children’s favourite toy/comforter
  • Medication
  • Coat or Jumper

If you are moving a long distance you will also need to take with you food and drink supplies for the journey for you, your family and your pets. You may also want to pack an overnight bag for each member of the family in case there is a problem with access to your new home. If you have the essentials then you can unpack the rest of the boxes at your leisure in an organised manner rather than having to open them all and empty half the contents out to find the one thing you need.
