The Essential Trip Kit

A pleasant household move involves more than entrusting personal possessions to a reputable, professional mover; it also means planning for personal comfort and safety during the trip to the new home.

Velocity Moving & Storage moving experts recommend putting aside essential articles in what Velocity Moving & Storage calls a “Trip Kit.” The kit, usually made of a moving box small enough for a family to take with them to their new home, acts as a collection point for important papers and necessary items that should not be boxed up during the busy sorting and packing process.



We suggest including the following items in the “trip kit”:

  • First-aid kit
  • Paper plates
  • Canned Goods
  • Plastic silverware
  • Can opener
  • Snacks
  • Cooking Ustensils
  • Bottled water
  • Soap
  • Disposable cups
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Special items for children
  • Wash cloths
  • Travel alarm clock
  • Check book
  • Sufficient cash
  • Identification cards
  • Credit cards
  • Hammer
  • Flashlight (check batteries)
  • Light bulbs
  • Keys to both old & new house
  • Pliers
  • Fuses
  • Wrench
  • Pet food/dishes
  • Scredrivers
