Cleaning Products To Pack For Your Move

Many people choose to buy their cleaning products post-move. But even if your apartment was cleaned prior to you getting handed the keys, having basic cleaning products can be helpful. You might not realize beforehand, but moving all of your belongings into a new place can create a mess. Products that can simplify the moving process are:

  • Vacuum Cleaner
  • Broom
  • Mop
  • Disinfectant
  • Paper Towels

First Aid Essentials

Although you might not need this on the day of your move, you should always have a first-aid kit tucked away at home. Bringing one along with you when you move in will ensure that you have the necessities before it's too late. Make sure to include things such as over-the-counter pain relievers, gauze, and bandages.

Basic Tool Kit

Even if you aren't the most handy, a tool kit is an essential when moving into a new apartment. Furniture screws can become loose when you are moving and need retightening. You also might have some decorations that you would like to put on the walls. Whatever the case is, a tool kit with a screw-driver, hammer, measuring tape and a few nails are a good thing to move with.

Toilet Paper For Your New Apartment

Moving to a new apartment can be time consuming. Make sure that you remember to pack toilet paper rolls for when you need an inevitable bathroom trip. If you are moving from one Philadelphia apartment building to another, you can simply take your remaining with you. Just make sure they are in an easy to find place on move-in day!

Your Moving Essentials Box

Everything that you consider as daily essentials should be put in one box during your move. This way, you don't have to worry about not being fully unpacked before it's time to brush your teeth and go to bed. Finding your new apartment in Philadelphia should be the easiest part of your move. Carlyle Property Management can help you find your new home in Philly.
