Get a Free Moving Estimate

    As we discussed last month, moving with kids isn’t easy. The good news is there are things you can do to alleviate your children’s stress and make the moving experience a little more enjoyable for everyone involved. You’re probably wondering how you can do that – it’s simple, pack a Kids Move Essential Box! Below are a few suggestions on what you should place in your box. Important: Make sure the items listed below are placed in your car before the movers arrive so they are not lost in the moving load.

    Here are some items we suggest from babies to school age

    • Enough diapers and wipes to cover a 24 hour period
    • Wash cloth and bibs
    • Medicines and over the counter remedies
    • A meal and some snacks
    • Sippy cups and bottles
    • Toiletries
    • PJs and 2 extra sets of clothes
    • Comfort items: pacifier, blankies and special toys
    • Emergency information and mini first aid kit
    • Travel games, crafts, school work and books
    • Bedding and bath linens
    • Night lights

    Don’t forget Mom

    • Wallet
    • Keys
    • Cell phone
    • Chargers for electronics
    • Baby monitor
    • Sunglasses
    • Pen and paper
    • Snacks, mints, or gum
    • Bottle of water or other drink
    • Nursing pads
    • New shirt in case of spit-up or a spill

    Bonus Tips:

    1. Pack a box of your kids’ favorite toys or even a few surprise new toys – this will keep them entertained for hours and make getting to the new home a celebration.
    2. If your children are older why not let them get in on the action? While prepping for the move, give your budding artists crayons and let them personalize the outside of boxes dedicated to their room.

    We used Beltway Movers to move all of our furniture and most of our other belongings into storage for more than three years and to move those belongings back into our house. We're very satisfied with every aspect of our dealings with Beltway Movers.

    Bill was excellent in both estimating and explaining the move, which entailed working with multiple people and delivery points. Follow up from the office was very professional, questions and concerns were answered promptly, and paperwork was thorough and easy to understand. Beltway is clearly a team operation, and a winning one at that. I would absolutely use Beltway again, and especially commend Caesar, Rene, and crew. I chose Beltway based on the promises made, and from start to finish, they did everything they said they would, and more. The team clearly understands the moving process from both a psychological and logistical standpoint

    Al and his crew were friendly and personable, treated our things with care, and were FAST! The move was reasonably priced. Thanks for the great service, would definitely use Beltway again.
