What You Need To Know About Creating A Moving Day Toolkit

by Assist2Sell Premier Choice Realty 03/31/2019

Moving day is an exciting day but it’s also a lot of work and can even be a little stressful. Everything is boxed up and feels near impossible to find when you need it. Avoid scrambling through boxes to find a trash bag or paper towels.

Be prepared on moving day no matter what comes your way with a cleanup toolkit on hand.

Messes happen even on moving day. By packing a special box that is clearly labeled with these items inside you’ll be ready for anything.

  • Ziplock bags

  • Permanent marker

  • Trash bags

Have ziplock bags on hand to wrangle up loose screws and other bits and bobs. Use a marker to write on the bag what the contents belong to. Trash bags are for the obvious: trash. No matter how much you clean out and clean up you will find you have some sort of trash on moving day. Have at least one ready and waiting.

  • Dustpan and brush

  • Paper towels

  • Window spray

  • All-purpose spray

  • Dusting clothes

  • Microfiber cloths

  • Spray bottle

For messes left behind by the previous owners and any spills that may happen. Dust items before putting them away on shelves or hanging back up on walls. Wipe down windows and mirrors. Run a dusting cloth over shelves and banisters. And always have a few paper towels at the ready - just in case.

  • Hand soap

  • Hand towels

  • Toilet paper

  • Plunger

Because the bathroom will be the first to be used so have the essentials in place. Let’s be honest, these are not the things you want to dig to the bottom of a box for. Pull these out and set up the bathroom as soon as you first step into the new house.

  • Air freshener

  • Disinfecting wipes

Not necessities, but certainly nice-to-haves. Wipe down counters, doorknobs and switch plates with a disinfectant wipe. Air fresheners take care of any funky smells left behind from previous owners or from sitting vacant for a while.

Having a cleaning kit on hand and at the ready allows you to clean up as you go. You don’t want to start cleaning up after you’ve unpacked and put everything away. Do it beforehand for an easy, seamless moving experience.  

Tackles messes as they come up, proactively clean as you start moving items in and avoid digging through boxes to find disinfectant wipes or a trash bag. Clearly label your box in large print and/or color code it with a bright colored packing tape. This way you’ll know exactly which box has your supplies and where it is at all times.

Make your new house your home by freshening it up before unpacking. It will feel so good to have a clean organized home from day one.

Susan Konsella, Broker Associate

Susan is a 2nd generation Colorado native – born and raised in Littleton, she graduated from Heritage High School then earned a degree in accounting from University of Colorado at Boulder.

After 20 years as a CPA in all sorts of industries, Susan became a real estate broker 5 years ago because she loves the personal interaction of real estate and collaborating with others in a way that increases their life satisfaction.

The decision to buy or sell a home is highly emotional so balancing the level of emotion with practicality is important. Susan is a facilitator who can help refine a client’s objectives, provide and explain information and work toward the client’s goal. While she brings skill with financial details, it is so much more than numbers. It is also about making the process enjoyable and taking care of details that people would rather leave to an expert, while working toward a successful real estate transaction.

Honesty, integrity, strong work ethic, professionalism, the characteristics people look for in an accountant. are all criteria that people need in selecting a real estate broker. With that in mind, Susan strives to provide people the kind of service she would want. The following items make up her business goals and values.

Provide Excellent Customer Service: Listen to clients and care for them beyond their expectations.
Work with Integrity: Treat every transaction as if it were my own.
Hold Others in High Regard: Make each interaction I have with others a positive one.

Susan’s hope is to create a long-term relationship with each client through consistent practice of these values.

She’s the mother of three teenage boys and enjoys crossfit, gardening, baking and spending time with friends.

TESTIMONIALS

Working with Steve and his office made our home selling and purchase experience easy and stress free, they are the best in town! First he helped us find the perfect new home to purchase and then we needed to sell our existing house fast. He ended up getting us two offers within three weeks. He was then able to arrange the timing for both the purchase of the new house and sale of the existing house to work out perfectly. Because of his experience and hard work we sold and closed on the old house and moved into our new house within 60 days! Steve listened to what we wanted and made it all happen. We highly recommend Steve to everyone we know!
