Common Items Forgotten in Residential Moves

After living in a place for a decent amount of time, it’s easy to overlook some of your belongings. You become so accustomed to seeing your floor lamp in a specific corner that it seemingly morphs into an extension of your home. Appliances, important items and things you decided to pack last are the things most commonly left behind in a household move.

Keep these items in mind when doing your final once-over:

  • Coffee Maker
  • Microwave
  • Garden Hose
  • Lawn Mower
  • Toilet Plunger
  • Tools
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Medicine
  • Private Records
  • Safes

It’s also important to remember to leave certain things behind. If you have a spare key hidden somewhere, remove it. Also, take the garage door opener out of your car. If you are moving long distance, return all the items you borrowed from friends and family. Alternately, remember to get your belongings back. If you have pets, don’t forget to leave an open spot in your car. Vehicles fill up fast when moving.
