So, it’s time to move into your Terravita Scottsdale home. You’re all prepared for the movers. But one thing you might not have thought about is putting together a survival kit. It could take you days to unpack and find items you need on a daily basis. Depending on how far away you’re moving to your Terravita Scottsdale home, there’s always a chance there could be a delay with the movers. Here are some items to include in your survival kit. 

Toilet Paper

This may seem kind of strange, but toilet paper should be the number-one thing to include in your survival kit when moving to your Terravita Scottsdale home. There’s no guarantee the previous owner will leave any and you don’t want to get stuck or find yourself running to a store or restaurant to use the restroom. 

Also, you’ll also want to pack a plunger. If there’s more than one bathroom in your Terravita Scottsdale home, you won’t need to worry about it as much. Again, you don’t want to be in a position where you’re having to drive to find a restroom. 

Medications and Valuables

Whether it’s prescription meds or aspirin, put it in your survival kit. Even include important documents, your laptop, jewelry, and anything else of great value. You don’t want to risk important items getting misplaced or even risk a delay in them getting delivered to your Terravita Scottsdale home. 


Even though we’re turning into a credit card society, you still need to carry cash on you, at least on moving day so you can tip your movers.

Leatherman Knife 

A Leatherman or Swiss Army knife can come in handy for opening boxes. These knives also don’t take up a lot of room in your survival kit. At the very least, have a box cutter. 

Trash bags 

Trash bags and clear recycling bags will be useful for disposing of packing materials. Look up ahead of time what materials are recyclable. 


It’s so easy to forget about bringing a mobile phone charger or even a power strip. The power strip will be beneficial since you’ll want to plug other things into it in addition to a charger like lamps or even a laptop. A flashlight could also be useful at night.


Again, if the movers are late getting to your Terravita Scottsdale home or misplace a box, having items like toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, deodorant, a razor etc. in your survival kit will be very helpful. 

Don’t forget a first aid kit either. Soap, paper towels, and a box of bandages should take care of any move-in minor accidents. 

All-purpose Cleaner

You’ll be surprised, but Clorox wipes and a roll of paper towels will be very valuable on move-in day. While it won’t be a big cleaning day, you’ll want to be prepared in case the sellers haven’t cleaned before moving out. Even if they do clean, you’ll probably want to scrub the toilets and countertops. 

Local restaurant menus and phone numbers

At the end of the day, you’re not going to feel like cooking or probably going out to eat. So find some restaurants ahead of time that deliver. Include names and phone numbers as part of your survival kit.

All of these tips should make moving day a little easier!
