Moving house is thought to be one of the most stressful events you can go through in your life, so it is not too surprising that you might let a few things slide and forget some important aspects of the process.

To help you with that, here are some of the most common things people forget when moving them. Add them to your list and hopefully, your move will be a little easier as a result.

1. Personal papers

One thing that many people often forget to pack is personal papers like birth certificates and documents. It is important that you start thinking about collecting these together safely as soon as you book the Allied Van Lines movers or you could end up losing them or forgetting them in one way or another. It’s also a good idea to photocopy them because that way, if you do lose them in the move, it will be easier to get a replacement.

2. Booking kennels

Most people find it less stressful to move if they know that their pets are in a safe place. Dogs and cats do not like the upheaval that comes with a house move and they are likely to get stressed, and maybe even try to run away when the house is in moving day chaos. 

By booking a kennel or cattery where they can stay for the day, you will have an easier mobe and much more peace of mind, so do not forget to book them a safe place well in advance of moving day to ensure they have somewhere to go until you are safely moved in and ready to collect them.

3. Dry cleaning

Many people forget about their dry cleaning and leave it in the store when they move. This is fine if you are moving somewhere local, but if you are going further afield, then it could mean either a long trip or leaving your clothing behind. Be sure to pack up any laundry tickets in advance of moving day.

4. Valuables

If you have valuables like jewelry and antiques that you are planning to take with you, it is a good idea to pack them up extra carefully, and in the case of smaller objects, pack them in a separate bag rather than the regular moving boxes so you can keep them on you and move them yourself in the car.

Although most movers have insurance, it will not always cover really expensive items, so dealing with them yourself can often be the best course of action.

5. Prescriptions

So many medications end up getting left behind in cabinets and drawers in the move, and this can cause a problem if you need them regularly. Not only that, but it is a good idea to get a fresh prescription filled before you move so you have some time to organize a new doctor at the new place.

If you remember all of the above when moving, then things are likely to go a lot more smoothly for you and your family. Good luck!
