Inexpensive Moving Company

T-N-T Moving Systems knows how stressful Moving Day can be. Our goal is to help make the moving process as smooth and as stress-free as possible. Give us a call and we will show up on moving day, load everything into our truck, and bring it safely to your new home. However, you don’t want to put everything in the moving truck. When you get to your new home, it is likely that you will be tired and the task of unpacking all of your things is daunting. Here are some tips for what items to pack in your own vehicle.

Everyday Clothes

Whether you are moving across the country or just across town, make sure you pack a bag of clothing to take in your car with you. Sorting through all your boxes takes some time. You will want to know where your clothes are right away rather than tearing apart every box you see. We recommend packing enough clothes for between 1-2 weeks to give you time to unpack.


Traveling is exhausting and taking a relaxing shower is the perfect way to prepare for unpacking your new home. Pack a toiletry bag with essentials like a towel, shower supplies, a toothbrush and toothpaste, face wash, and a roll of toilet paper. Taking a bag with these essentials will make the transition to your new home go smoothly.


We recommend that you pack and move your valuables in your own vehicle. Items like jewelry, small electronics, and important documents will be safest to travel with you. Sometimes items just get thrown in a box and you may not finish unpacking for a while. Taking valuable items in your car will help you keep track of them during the move.

These are few ideas for what to pack in your own car. It is also a good idea to have a box with essential moving items labeled and easily accessible. Items like eating utensils, chargers, trash bags, clean sheets, and a box cutter should be easy to find so that you can unpack quickly.

For everything else in your home, you can trust that T-N-T Moving Systems will safely deliver all your belongings to your new home. To get a quote for your move, give us a call at 704-523-1455, or for more moving tips, check out our blog.
