Do You Have A Moving Essential Box Packed?
Do you have all the keys for the new property? Check that you have front and back door keys, window lock keys, and screen door or security door keys. If the property has a garage or shed, check that you have copies of those keys too, along with the remote controller for the roller door. The same applies for a letterbox with a lock on it.
Yes, there really are plenty of people who pack their wallet on moving day, only to discover they can’t find where they’ve packed it later in the day.
Important documents and paperwork:
Keep any important paperwork and documentation stored in your essentials box and transport it with you.
Be sure to pack any medications you need throughout the day into your essentials box so you have easy access to them when you want them.
Mobile phones and chargers:

Moving can be thirsty work, so be sure you pack water bottles or take soft drinks in an esky with you.
You don’t have the convenience of being able to open the fridge and grab a snack at the new property yet, so have some snacks pre-prepared.
Always be sure you have some handy toilet paper packed where you can find it the moment you get to your destination.
After a long day of moving furniture and unpacking boxes, you want to be sure you know where your toiletry and personal products are.

Pet food and bowls:
If you’re moving with pets, check that you’ve packed food and bowls somewhere handy.
Keep a supply of bin bags in your essentials box. You’ll need them to discard of any packing materials you have left over after unpacking.
Basic tool kit:
