…always have a box clearly labelled, ‘Important Box’ and keep it in the car with you rather than on the removal lorry. The box should house the essential items you will need immediate access to upon reaching your new home e.g. Kettle, tea, coffee, milk (in cold-bag) sugar (ever known a removal man that doesn’t take sugar), teaspoons, mugs and the obligatory packet of biscuits.
Also in a separate bag in the same box have several pairs of scissors, bin bags and screwdrivers both Phillips and Slot. Also a set of Allen Keys – you will most likely require these to put the beds together; it’s likely the removal men will have a set, but best to err on the side of caution. I would also recommend you put the TV remotes in this box as they often get thrown into the last box – but which was the last box!
Also if you or your family are taking medication, put those items in this box – so you have immediate stress free access.
