Making a Game Plan for Unpacking Your New Home

Have you recently contracted home relocation movers near Charlotte, NC? Moving into a new home presents a significant change for you and your family. To help make the process run smoothly and efficiently, generating an unpacking plan is essential. These tips can help: unpacking - plan

Label your boxes.

The first step in a successful unpacking plan is to create a labeling system while you pack. By identifying the packed boxes with some indication of what they contain and where they should go in your new house, you can give your moving services team a way of knowing in which area each box should be unloaded. Labeling the boxes with permanent markers and the name of the rooms they are intended to go in is one method. However, assigning a color to each room of the house and using colored packing tape to close up your boxes saves you a step and makes the boxes easy to differentiate. If you plan to hire both movers and packers, ensure that everyone involved is aware of the system.

Separate your essentials.

Even with a great strategy in place, unpacking a house takes time. For this reason, it’s vital that you identify which items will be necessary for your family to have during the first few days after the move. If you can’t transport them with you by car, then these boxes should be easily identifiable by your moving services and should be loaded so that they are the first ones off of the truck when your home relocation movers reach their destination. Examples include medications, a few changes of clothing, sleepwear, and personal hygiene products.

Unpack your home.

With your essentials unpacked and the rest of your boxes unloaded and arranged throughout your new house, the rest of the unpacking process can commence. It’s at this point that families often make the mistake of tackling several rooms at once. To keep the situation under control and organized, focus on one room at a time. First, deal with the kitchen, followed by the bedrooms and bathrooms while leaving storage spaces and furniture for last.
