Moving can be an exciting time, but the thrill of moving all your items into another home can quickly fade as you pack box after box of miscellaneous items you wonder why you are taking in the first place. In the rush of last-minute panic to make sure everything is ready for the moving company to stow the goods away and haul them to the new place, you may forget to pack a few things. Here are some of the most common items people leave behind when they move.
1. Tiny Cabinet
Almost every home or apartment has that tiny cabinet above a fridge or stove that is inconvenient to reach and too small to hold anything you use every day. Most people store papers, light bulbs, or other items they don’t use very often in the cubby hole. That is probably why many people don’t remember to pack what they stored up there, and they leave it behind.
2. Dry Cleaning
When you call the local moving companies FL, and they have come to whisk you away, don’t forget to pick up your dry cleaning before making the move to another city. It happens more often than you would believe because, in the whirlwind panic of the last-minute moving lists, the dry cleaning is hidden away in a shop. So, out of sight, out of mind.
3. Prescription Medicines
You leave the medications in the cupboard because you take them every day, and in the rush to get out of the house on the last day, you forget to take them. Make sure you do a walk-thru that allows you to open every drawer and look on every shelf to see what you have forgotten.
4. Electronic Chargers
Whether you leave them at the house, in the hotel on the way to the new place, or at the bistro where you had lunch, chargers for electronic devices are the item that is left behind more than any other. Rather than finding yourself in need to head to the nearest store to replace the lost charger, make sure you have a secure location for all the necessary electronic devices.
5. Important Documents
In an apartment or home with built-in units, many people store important papers on top of the units, so they know where they are when they need them. This could be rental papers, insurance documents, or employment reports. Make sure you run your hand along the top of built-in units to collect any forgotten items.
Moving can be hectic. You can easily pack everything you need when you keep these five things in mind.
