Things that people forget to pack when moving in NYC


Some of the most common things that people forget to pack are those they use daily. Packing for the move usually begins with bigger and bulkier items, while smaller objects come last. Often in this scenario, people tend to ignore essential items they need for everyday use. They are smaller and therefore easier to lose. Moreover, many overlook the fact that documents and other necessities should be kept close at all times. That’s why we at U.Santini Moving & Storage created this small yet helpful guide. The details are as important as the entire organization of the move.

We operate as one of the most capable, trustworthy, yet considerably cheap movers Brooklyn has on the market. Also, we offer excellent moving services depending on your needs. In addition, you can always contact our representatives to learn more details about us and our work. Our team will ensure you have a blissful and stress-free move.

Create a checklist of things people often forget to pack

Checklists are an excellent way to keep track of items you know you’ll need. Make sure to have your list with you on paper or on your phone. Don’t forget to remind your chosen local movers Brooklyn to be careful when packing in order not to pick up your most necessary items. Moving is stressful enough and therefore it’s necessary to remind yourself to pack the essentials:

  • documents
  • hygiene kit
  • medicine and first-aid kit
  • toiletries
  • snacks
  • charged power bank

At some point during the move, you’ll need to grab a chocolate bar or cracker. Moving takes a lot of time and energy, therefore it’s always good to have a pick-up snack with you. Furthermore, you never know whether you will need a first-aid on the go. That’s why a traveler’s first-aid kit is more than useful. As for the documents, they are needed no matter where you go and what you do.

Keep your essential items close yet try not to overpack

Make sure you aren’t dragging too many items in your bag. You don’t want to end up with a bulky handbag that makes your move more complicated. Besides packing the essentials, you don’t need to add more stuff to your bag. Also, make sure to use plastic bags to protect your personal and travel documents. The same applies to toiletries and other liquids. Before you pack them, make sure all bottles are sealed. The less potential leaking, the better!

However, you will need a pair of helping hands if you want to move your office. Get in touch with reputable Brooklyn office moving companies that are quite familiar with commercial moves. Their packers know very well how to pack office documentation and other inventory. On the other hand, you can always choose our team! We will make sure to come to your aid and make sure you don’t miss on things that people forget to pack.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.

Does U.Santini Moving & Storage offer insurance?

Absolutely! We offer various types of insurance to protect your belongings, including a full replacement option. The cost depends on how much your things are worth and the deductible you choose.

How soon should I schedule my move?

It's a good idea to book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move. If you're moving during the holidays or in the summer, it's best to schedule it 12 weeks ahead. But if your move is between September and May, you can often book movers with just 2 weeks' notice. The key is to secure your moving crew as soon as you have all the details about your move.

Do you provide packing supplies?

Yes, we do. Along with the necessary boxes and packing materials for your move, we offer various 'Saver' packages tailored to the size of your home. If you don't use all the boxes you purchased, you can return them to our team after the move, and we'll refund the unused portion.
