It’s moving day and the time to transport all of your belongings from one location to another is now here! For the planners, you've prepared for this day by reading about packing tips and setting up a system to stay organized, but did you set up a similar system to unpack? Unpacking is often the last thing you think about when it comes to moving. Normally it becomes the activity that is most irritating and prolonged. The main objective of getting your furniture to your new place clouds the need to plan and execute an appropriate means of getting items into their proper place.
In order to plan effectively, you need a starting point. How are you going to figure out what rooms are the most vital to unpack first? How are you going to label the moving and storage boxes to keep you organized as you unpack? Finally, what items should you have with you when you begin unpacking? All of these questions are commonly asked by movers, but little time is taken to sit down and think about a strategic, time-effective approach. Let’s change that now.
Now that you know which rooms to unpack first, you need to set up a plan of action. This plan should entail what boxes go to what room. To save time and resources, follow a box numbering system for unpacking. The number system is beneficial because it’s simple, easy and it determines what boxes get put into the portable moving container first and why.
Now that you know the order of which rooms to unpack and how to stay organized while unpacking, you need to make sure you have the necessary items to complete the task of unpacking properly.
Remember, you have not officially moved until you have unpacked. Stay organized and make things as simple as possible. The last thing you need when moving into your new home is immediate clutter and mayhem!
