How to Pack a Essential Box of Basic Necessities

It is not easy to leave a long-settled place and move your favorite sofa and other furniture to a new apartment, sometimes located hundreds of kilometres away. You will have to think about how to make sure that nothing is damaged, broken, lost or broken during the moving process. Moving is definitely not a reason to panic in times of COVID-19. It’s much warmer outside today than it was yesterday. If we come to a real spring, with steadily warm days, the spread of the coronavirus will come to nothing. So this is not the reason to delay your planned move, especially if you hired a reliable moving company beforehand. But you and your movers must follow precaution measures.

The first recommendation.

Wash your hands with soap as often as possible, without hesitation. This should generally be done in four cases:

  • after we came home from the street or work
  • after the bathroom
  • before eating
  • if your hands are dirty

If it is not possible to wash your hands, we recommend buying an antiseptic or alcohol wipes for processing. The only thing I want to pay attention to is that you need to buy only alcohol-containing antiseptics, at least 60% alcohol in the composition. All antiseptics with a lower percentage are ineffective.

The second recommendation.

Ventilate the room as often as possible. It’s already warm days, so let’s get some fresh air. Clean and disinfect regularly.

And the third.

If you feel sick, please do not attend public places, do not spread the virus, and call your family doctor.

Boxes of basic necessities during the move through coronavirus.

Don’t postpone packing for the last few days. Do the planning in advance. The sequence of systematical actions during packaging is the key to success for a smooth moving to another state. We propose you to pack a few boxes of things that you will need immediately after moving.  Essentials boxes come in handy so stock them together to find everything easily.

Essential box for children.

In a separate box, put food for small children (if they participate in the move), care products for them in sufficient quantities, favorite books and toys. The moving process will be not easy for you both. Be honest and explain the reasons for the upcoming move. Take their fav snacks and toys, books and other things they can be attached to.

Essential box for kitchen.

Pack some basic cookware as pot and pan into a separate box. Replace stationary cutlery by disposable plates, utensils, and cups. Take a set of products from which you can quickly prepare something when getting into your new home. Don’t forget about the water and snacks.

Essential box for bedroom.

According to moving statistics, several sets of clothing (from underwear, socks to pajamas) are enough for each family member during first days after your move to another state. Don’t forget about extra blankets, sheets, pillows, bedding sets, inflatable mattress.

Essential box for bathroom.

Pack everything you constantly use in the bathroom.

  • toilet paper
  • towels
  • toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • deodorant
  • face wash
  • lotion
  • soap
  • cosmetics
  • hair dryer

Essential box for animals.

You should prepare your fur friend for a move well too. You need to take care of them and prepare leashes and food bowls, toilet, fav food, and toys to relieve stress.

Vital “don’t forget” list of things during the move to another state.

Documents, valuable items, personal devices (phone, laptop, chargers and batteries), jewelry, and credit cards should be at hand during your move. Pack everything in a separate safe bag or box and transport in person. You also need to keep the necessary medications and first-aid kit with you.

Items for cleaning during your move through coronavirus.

Take a bucket, antibacterial wipes, soft cotton cleaning cloths, broom and dustpan, vacuum cleaner, paper towels, detergents, and sanitizers with you to clean and disinfect a new place right after you move in.
