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.

Did you know? Beltway Movers has boxes with removable lids that allow you to easily open and close the box to access the essentials? We call it an office box but don’t let the name fool you. The cost is 3.50. For more on the type of boxes we have available for pick up or delivery with a minimum purchase click here to visit our Resource Center.

Top Rated, Highly Recommended

My movers were fantastic. I wound up being much farther behind them than I anticipated, and they found parking and got started unloading while I was still on the road. This was my second move with Beltway Movers, and I’m officially a big fan.

The staff was very helpful and quick to respond when the mover we signed a contract with failed to show up on move day. We have a large house with lots of nice furniture, glass cabinets, etc... Our crew was incredibly skilled and they managed to move our house without damage to our belongings or the properties. The crew was very professional, friendly, and fast on both ends of the move. I would use them because the same crew that loads your truck also unloads your truck and the furniture doesn't get handled an extra time switching freight carriers. I'm a very satisfied customer.

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.
