Tips on Unpacking After a Move

Date: 5/28/2019

Unpacking Tips from a Leader Among Local Moving Companies

If you’re looking for local moving companies, you’re well on your way to planning your next residential move. Don’t forget that planning out your schedule and your to-do list for after the move is just as important as your plan leading up to the move! After all, you’ll want an effective strategy that helps you and your family get back to work, school, and your social life.


Label All Boxes

Unpacking strategies should go hand in hand with your packing strategies. While local moving companies like University Moving and Storage use color coding and labeling strategies to pack, you can use your own method to make sure you know what’s in each box. Label each box with both what room it should be in, and also what its contents are, to make moving and unpacking easier.


Prioritize Unpacking Certain Items

Unpacking gets easier when you also have a strategy for how to identify what you need most urgently in your first few days at home. Consider marking certain boxes so that you know which kitchen box contains your plates, cups, and cutlery, and which linen closet boxes contain the bedding you’ll need on your first night.

Local moving companies often offer unpacking services; University Moving and Storage also offers assembly and installation services, and more. These can all help you settle into your new home faster. As you unpack, bear in mind that it’s important to remove packing materials, break down boxes, and remove moving materials from each room as you work. This makes your house feel more like your home, even faster.
