Furniture is the first thing you need to check off your list. Are all the pieces of furniture for both bedrooms present and accounted for? If not, do a quick headcount and mark down precisely what is missing.

Your furniture is likely the most expensive item to move when it comes to your house. You can start by making sure you have enough boxes and bubble wrap for each piece, as well as a vehicle large enough to accommodate all of them. Ensure that you take inventory of your furniture, so nothing gets left behind or lost during the moving process!


Toiletries are personal items you and your family use daily, such as shampoo and conditioner. You can also include things like toothbrushes, soap, moisturizers, etc. Also, don’t forget toilet paper, sponges, etc., depending on what you use in your household. Just think of all your hygiene items or cleaning purposes.

Pantry and Fridge Stock

Pantry and fridge stock refers to the groceries and other food items you’ll need to transfer to your new house. Before moving, make sure that the pantry is well-stocked with essentials like sugar, salt, pepper powder, and liquid items such as cooking oil and spices. It will also be helpful if you have some dry goods (rice, pasta), frozen vegetables, or meat in stock for emergencies.


Hangers are an essential item for any wardrobe. It is vital to have a decent amount of hangers to ensure proper organization and allow you the freedom to hang up your clothes without having to worry about them falling off or getting creased in transit.

You can get additional features such as padding for delicate fabrics, cedar chips that help reduce moths, plastic coating that doesn't snag on fabric and non-slip clips which keep blouses from sliding out if accidentally hung over another garment.
