Whether you hire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to assist with your unpacking needs or you want to take on the job yourself, the tips below will help make the experience a little more seamless.
1. LABEL EVERYTHING
This is arguably the most important rule of packing and unpacking, and we cannot stress enough how crucial this is during the moving process. Labeling everything appropriately will help both you and the movers as the items get transported from one house to the next and will help movers know where to take the boxes when they are bringing them into your new home.
Similarly, it will help you know what within the boxes, so you don’t have to dig through and look for a particular item before you’ve completely unpacked.
2. ORGANIZE BOXES BY ROOM
Building off the point about labeling, a good way to ease into unpacking your home is by organizing your moving boxes by room.
This will tell the movers where boxes need to be placed and will keep belongings that go together in the same location so there isn’t anything misplaced, causing unnecessary confusion. Once every box is placed in the appropriate room, you can began unpacking room-by-room and chip away at the process to make it more manageable over time.
3. CLEAN OUT CABINETS AND DRAWERS AHEAD OF TIME
It may seem like a minor detail, but ensuring drawers and cabinets are cleaned out prior to unpacking will save you quite a bit of time, as you’re able to easily place items where they need to go without worrying about space. Make a plan in advance of where you want items to go, that way you have a game plan going into it and can easily place items in their designated spots as you unpack.
