Packing A Moving Day Essentials Box Is Essential!

Moving days can start early and can be very hectic. Now that we are in the winter months, daylight is limited and the weather conditions can be unpredictable. Throw in some crazy Georgia traffic and it’s a veritable moving can of worms!

With so many things to keep in mind, it can be easy to forget some essential items. And nothing can be more frustrating that going into your first night at your new house without the items we so often take for granted.

This is why Peachtree Movers recommends putting together an “Essentials Box” a few days prior to moving. This way you are prepared in advance and don’t have to worry about getting things together at the last minute.

Just remember to pack it in your car prior to leaving for your new place!

Items to include:


It’s always helpful to have a few rolls of toilet paper, dish soap, and a dish towel on hand. It will save you the hassle of needing to make a run to the drug store during the day. Sounds silly but be sure to grab the toothpaste and tooth brushes. These types of items can be a great way to feel settled on your first night.

Beverages and snacks

Pack healthy snacks, as well as bottled water and instant coffee. A few packed sandwiches will make for a healthy and substantial lunch. Also don’t forget to include plates and cutlery if you’re planning on eating anything substantial.


A flashlight and a portable tool kit can go a long way in making your move an easy one. Some candles and a box of matches will also be helpful in the case of a power outage or if the electrical is not yet set up. A box cutter will help you open your sealed boxes, which there will be plenty!


Pack a change of clothes for all family members. Especially if the weather is cold and rainy, you will want to have something warm and dry to put on as you settle into your new place. Bring a set of pajamas, after a long day of moving you will want to be comfortable!

Important records

Put passports, birth certificates, and other sensitive information and records in a plastic bag and keep them on hand. Knowing where they are during the move provides strong peace of mind. Also this way, if you need to access any of this information on the day of the move it is easily accessible.

We wish you the best of luck in your move, and remember to call Peachtree Movers in Atlanta, Georgia at 404-355-8877 - we have been moving Atlanta for over 40 years!

Peachtree Movers Dropped Off The Last Box, Now What?

After a long day of moving, unpacking may be the last thing you want to do, and that’s fair enough. While you don’t want to wait too long to settle in, don’t feel guilty about wanting to take some time to unwind. Time to reward yourself for a move well done! Here are some ideas if you aren’t sure what to do:

Order in
You’re tired, and don’t want to go out. But you can’t imagine having the energy to cook, either. Treat yourself, and order in! Dinner is delivered right to your door and you can take a nap on the couch, lie down with a book or, if you’re so inclined, start unpacking a few things.

Game night
If you’ve got access to board games or card games, clear a space on the floor (or at the table, if it’s set up) and unwind for a few hours.

Movie night
This is an easy one, pull out your laptop or tablet and put on your favorite film—no need to unpack the entire DVD collection or set up the TV. Laptop too small? Hit the theater and see something on the big screen.

Dinner Out
Moving builds quite an appetite and unpacking your kitchen supplies may be the last thing you want to do, so step out for a few hours and relax at a nearby restaurant.

Hit the Town
Is there a sporting event or theater performance taking place that night? Your house is full of boxes, so a great reward could mean going out to watch a game, concert, or whatever else you still have energy for.

Bottom line, you deserve it! Especially after hiring Peachtree Movers, if you’ve not moved yet visit our website for a free moving quote

You've Just Moved To Atlanta, Georgia. Now What?

Good news! The hardest part is over. You've packed up your entire house and had it delivered to your new place. But after the Peachtree moving truck leaves, you’re left with a LOT of boxes and furniture out of place. So what do you do first? Peachtree Movers can help!

1.  Change Your Locks. You want your new place to be safe and secure—so, start with the locks. If the previous residents or owners did not change the locks, make sure to do this first. And if the garage has a code, don’t forget to reset that, too! You can rest easier knowing that no one has the keys to your new place except you.

2.  Next up, unpack the important boxes first. Unpacking every room of your house will take a bit of your time, (maybe a month or so!) so make sure that you start with the most important rooms first—namely, the kitchen, bathroom(s) and the bedroom essentials. That way, you have everything you absolutely need ready to go while you take time to unpack everything else.

3.  Can’t make dinner with the utilities in place. Test out your internet, electric, heat, etc. to make sure that everything is ready to go.

4.  Don’t forget to register your car if you've moved states. Taking care of this ASAP will help you avoid hassles later down the road.

5.  Enjoy your new home!

For all of your relocation needs, call the premiere household moving company in Atlanta—Peachtree Movers! We can help you with every step of the moving process to make it quick and stress-free. Give us a call to get started or fill out our easy online form for your FREE quote!

Peachtree Movers Atlanta Update


Atlanta. It has been Georgia's capital since 1869 and the home of Peachtree Movers since 1976. It's also the home to Georgia Tech, Georgia State University and the Falcons. This time of the year, when the air is a little crisper, on a weekend afternoon, you are bound to see thousands of tailgaters near the Georgia Dome or Bobby Dowd Stadium, both just quick strolls from the Capitol Building.

Whether you live or work in the city limits of the state capital or in one of the many vibrant suburbs of Atlanta, let our experienced team assist you with all of your moving, packing and storage needs. For a free estimate, call us at (404) 355-8877 or visit our website at and complete the quote request form on the main page.


Since Georgia became a state in 1776, a total of five cities have served as state capitals. Before Atlanta permanently became the capital in 1869, Savannah, Augusta, Louisville (about 50 miles SW of Augusta) and Milledgeville (about 30 miles NE of Macon) also served as capitals of the Peach State at various times.

Construction of the State Capitol Building began in 1884 and was completed on the 4th of July in 1889. Other than the limestone, which came from Indiana, all other materials used to build it came from Georgia: marble, wood, cast iron, and of course, the gold that makes up the dome. (Yes, that's real gold!)


Here are a few quick tips to keep your canine or feline friend safe and happy during your move:

--Make sure your pets' ID tags are updated with your new address, phone number and vet information.

--Keep your pet secured inside a well ventilated carrier while you are driving.

--Pack your pet's toys, bed, litter box, etc. last so that they are the first things you unpack at your new location, in order to get them acclimated to their new surroundings right away.

--Try to keep your pet's belongings in relatively the same location in your new place. For instance, if you kept your dog's bed to the left of the sofa in your old place, do the same in the new place.
