Okay, before you even unload the moving truck, you need to have a plan in place. This typically starts at the other end of your move…loading up. Before you even consider setting up your new home, you need to have a plan in place, a plan that starts while you are packing up your previous residence. Make sure you have a labeling strategy that you understand. This may include numbering boxes, colored tape, markers, post-it notes, maybe even a spreadsheet. The important thing here is to know where things are.
The next step involves how you pack your truck. Now, if you are utilizing professional movers they should have a good idea of the best strategy. Be sure that you have items you will need for the first few days readily available and easily accessible. This is something we always recommend because you may not want to dig through every box just to find your toothbrush. We suggest placing boxes that will go further back in your home towards the back of the truck provided they are the right size and weight. Why? Well, doing so will ensure that as you unload you can go directly to the furthest point of your new home and not have to double back in the end. You can take the boxes directly to their endpoint first. Knowing where boxes will go will help you work smarter, not harder.
When you begin to unpack boxes, put the empty ones out of the way. This simple step will help de-clutter your working area and homely ease some stress on your part. While you are at it, keep fragile items like frames and artwork out of the way until you know where you will want to place them. This will help keep them safe while you are working.
Listen, unpacking can be a struggle, we know this. Taking a few moments to plan ahead can make all the difference when it comes to making your house a home. Congratulations on your move and please know that A Mother’s Touch Movers is here to assist you. Contact our office today.
