Essential Items To Pack For Temporary Housing

As a luxury temporary housing company, The Hennessey Group understands that moving into a new space can be exciting and daunting, even for a short time. To help ease the transition and make your stay as comfortable and stress-free as possible, we’ve compiled a list of essential items to pack for your temporary housing experience.

Important Documents: 

Regardless of the duration of your stay, it’s essential to have your important documents handy. These include identification (driver’s license or passport), credit cards, insurance information, and rental agreements. Having digital copies of these documents saved on your phone or laptop provides added convenience. Ensuring your records are close to hand can make stressful situations easier. 

Clothing and Personal Items: 

Pack clothing suitable for the climate and duration of your stay, along with any personal items such as toiletries and grooming supplies. Remember, temporary housing often includes laundry facilities, so you won’t need to pack your entire wardrobe but remember essentials like sleepwear, a bathing suit, and workout gear if you plan to take advantage of fitness facilities.

Electronics and Chargers: 

Electronics have become crucial to our everyday lives. Be sure to pack your laptop, smartphone, and other necessary devices. Consider investing in a universal adapter if you’re traveling internationally. Connecting to co-workers, family, and friends digitally can help bring comfort to a move that may increase distance. 

Kitchen Essentials: 

While your luxury temporary housing will have a well-stocked kitchen, bringing a few essentials is always a good idea. Think about packing your favorite spices, a high-quality chef’s knife, a reusable water bottle, and some Tupperware for leftovers. The kitchen is one of the most used parts of a home. Many comforting memories and moments occur in this room, and having small souvenirs to bring back those positive thoughts can help make a strange place feel more like home.

Comfort Items: 

Making your temporary home feel cozy is vital for a comfortable stay. Besides kitchen items,  Pack a few miscellaneous things that remind you of home, such as a soft throw blanket, your favorite coffee mug, or a framed photo of loved ones. These personal touches will help you settle in quickly.


Temporary housing often includes various entertainment options, but bringing your own diversions for downtime is still a good idea. Pack a few books, a deck of cards, or a travel-sized board game to enjoy during your stay. You can use your downtime for more than just being homesick. 

Health and Wellness: 

Staying healthy while away from home is crucial, so pack any necessary medications, vitamins, and supplements. It’s also wise to include a small first-aid kit for minor emergencies. Some temporary housing solutions will have one on hand, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. 

Travel-Size Appliances: 

Depending on the length of your stay and your personal preferences, you may want to bring a few travel-sized appliances like a hairdryer, curling iron, or even a portable steamer for wrinkle-free clothing. While laundry is sure to be included, your personal preferences may need more accommodation.
