Moving can be a stressful experience, but with a little preparation and some help from your friends and family, it doesn’t have to be! We’ve put together some tips to make your move easier for everyone involved, so you can focus on settling into your new home and enjoying some delicious Uncle Henry’s Pretzels. Let’s get started!


Before The Move

  1. Pack everything: Make sure everything is packed before the big day so there’s no waiting around.
  2. Keep a ’24-hour’ box: This box should contain everything you need for your first 24 hours in your new home, such as toiletries, clothes, towels, and medications. This will make your first night more comfortable and less stressful.
  3. Maximize your car or rental truck space: Pack as much as you can into your car or rental truck to get a head start on things.
  4. Label your boxes: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking much easier and keep things organized.
  5. Go over the plan: Make sure everyone knows the plan for the next day, including start times, break times, and any special instructions.

The Day Of

  1. Stock up on drinks: Before everyone arrives, stock the new fridge with water, soda, and any other drinks your helpers might enjoy.
  2. Ensure bathroom essentials: Make sure the bathrooms have toilet paper, hand soap, and hand towels in them. It’s a small thing that is often forgotten.
  3. Provide snacks: Put out a few bowls of assorted pretzels. Rather than getting distracted and waiting for food, giving people a healthy snack to munch on is a great way to keep energy high.
  4. Sincerely thank your helpers: After everyone has helped and had a chance to relax with snacks and drinks, express your gratitude.


Now that you’re all moved in, it’s time to unpack and settle into your new space. Rather than do the classic “order a pizza after moving,” treat your helpers to a meal in your new home. As a token of your appreciation, send your friends and family off with a pretzel gift tin from Uncle Henry’s, along with a heartfelt note. Your appreciation won’t go unnoticed, and they’ll remember your kindness the next time you need a hand.

So, to sum it up: the way to make your move as easy as possible for everyone involved is to be prepared, organized, and appreciative. And don’t forget to stock up on Uncle Henry’s Pretzels – they’re the perfect way to keep energy levels high and make your moving day a little more enjoyable!
