How to Unpack After Your Move is Over

1st choice movers hennepin countyJust when you think the most stressful part of your move is over, it’s time to unpack! But don’t worry: there are plenty of ways to make this process easier. As residential and commercial movers in Hennepin County, we have learned some great tips over the years about how to make unpacking a little less painful and a lot more fun.

The first thing you should do is make sure all of your moving boxes are in the right rooms. While it might seem easier to just start unpacking in one main room and then distribute your items and belongings throughout the rest of your new house, it actually ends up creating even more work for you. Our movers will always do their best to ensure your boxes are placed in the right rooms. However, if your moving boxes are not labeled, they might not end up in the right place. Either way, place the boxes and other items where they should be.

You might be wondering where you should start after your movers leave. Do you unpack your bedroom first, or should you be more concerned about your kitchen? We suggest starting with the essential rooms. For most people, those two rooms would be the kitchen and bathroom. Unpack the kitchen items you will definitely need for the next couple of days, like plates, silverware and drinking glasses.

Then move on to the bathroom. Unpack basic toiletries, like your toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, shampoo and other items like that. Make sure you have some toilet paper out, and be sure you hang up some fresh towels too.

You should then find your bedding and make your bed so you have somewhere comfortable to sleep at night. This will be especially beneficial if you are tired and sore from your moving day. Our movers will make sure your bed is placed in the correct room, so you will not have to worry about moving your mattress and box spring while you are unpacking and getting organized.

When you are done with your essentials, then you should start unpacking room by room. Start by envisioning your items and furniture and where you think they will look the best and then go from there. But be sure to pace yourself: remember you do not have to have everything unpacked in one day! Unpacking is a process that is best done over the course of several days.
