Ottawa Moves: Keep Your
Daily Necessities Handy

Moving Day is hardly a stress-free day. We’ve all too often heard about or seen clients forgetting to leave out necessary items for moving day.

Here’s are some of the items you’ll be using on moving day at your old place and your new place. Reserve a box for these and other items you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new home:

  • Toiletries (soap, shampoo, razors, etc.)
  • Box cutter or knife
  • Tape and dispenser
  • Work gloves
  • Scissors
  • Basic cleaning supplies and paper towels


We’ll give you more items to keep out in the next section!
