The Ultimate Moving House Survival Kit

Moving house survival kit flat lay, showing suggested items

I’ve mentioned a few times in my timeline blog post and packing tips blog post about creating a ‘survival kit’ for moving house to help with your move but I appreciate I haven’t really said what this actually is.

It’s a fantastic idea to have a survival kit when you move house as it gives you all the things you need to have on hand when you are moving so you are not hunting through boxes looking for them. Whether its a plaster for the inevitable cut fingers or just being able to have a cuppa when you arrive at your new home, a survival kit will make your life much easier when you move.

Check out our list below which details everything we recommend you put in a special marked box which stays with you at all times.
