That First Box! What You Need To Pack

Whether it is a move around the corner, or a move to the other side of the country, its always best and highly recommended that you pack a suitcase and a box, of items which you will need once you arrive at your new home.

Honestly, who would want to start unpacking boxes the moment you arrive at your new home? Not that many of us. There is no problem unpacking all your boxes momentarily as some people prefer to do so.

Either way, its always ideal to have a suitcase and box ready for your first night in your new home. Items that you know you will be needing for the next 24 hours. Let us take a closer look:


Especially if its you and your family moving together, mutually agree that you will pack one large suitcase for everyone to share, pack items such as:

  • Toiletries
  • Medications
  • Change of clothing
  • First aid kit

Make sure to pack the essentials which you will need, not items like accessories(make up) and etc.

The First Night Box

Same as the previous point in regards to a suitcase, in the box you can pack essential and larger items which you and your family will need once you move into your new home:

  • Sparkling Wine (Aka Champagne), come on, who wouldn’t want to celebrate with a bang on the first day in a new home. (ps. Just don’t abuse alcohol please)
  • Disposable plats or Tupperware and cutlery.
  • Torches
  • Basic Toolkit
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Chargers
  • Blankets
  • Linen, such as towels.
