Now that we’ve covered packing and moving tips, it’s time to address some of our top unpacking tips and tricks! Just when you think the most stressful part of your move is over, it’s time to unpack! Luckily, there are plenty of ways to make this process easier. As residential and commercial professional movers in Anoka County, we have learned some great tricks over the years about how to make unpacking a little less painful and a lot more fun.
Evaluate the Situation
Start by making 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 professional 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 exact right place. Either way, place the boxes and other items where they should be before you begin to unpack.
Not totally sure where to begin? Start with the essential rooms. For most people, those rooms are the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms (excluding the guest room). Unpack the kitchen items you will definitely need for the next couple of days, like plates, silverware and drinking glasses. Next, make your bed and your family members’ beds 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 professional movers will make sure your bed is placed in the correct room, so you will not have to worry about moving mattresses and box springs while you are unpacking and getting organized.
Finish Unpacking the Fun Stuff
And finally, when you are finished up with the essentials, continue unpacking room by room. Envision your items and decorations where you think they will look best and then go from there. And, remember to pace yourself! Everything doesn’t have to be unpacked in one day. Even for professional movers, it is a process that’s best done over the course of several days. And, don’t forget to have fun with it! Involve the whole family in setting up the look and feel of your new living space.
