Unloading and unpacking

Upon arriving at your new home, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you. Unloading and unpacking your boxes in an organized way will make your work shorter and help you to get settled in as soon as possible.

First of all, make sure you’ve got your supplies within reach: you’ll need a box cutter and garbage bags at the very least.

Begin by bringing in all of largest items first. Furniture and appliances are included in this list. Place them in the rooms they belong in, and set them up in the configuration you want; that way you can continue placing smaller items around them accordingly.

If you have to break up your move into more than one day’s work, be sure to bring in your necessities next. Kitchen items such as cookware, plates, and silverware will be needed almost immediately, as will toiletries, towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows. Additionally, if your phone service is already connected, you may want to unpack a telephone so you can make and receive calls right away.

As you bring in the rest of your boxes, continue getting organized. Unpack a few boxes and put away their contents, then move on to a few more boxes. As you accumulate more and more empty boxes, break them down and stack them flat for easy disposal.

Rotate throughout the house from room to room, unloading boxes and unpacking them. This way, no particular room will be less settled than any other, and the entire house will be organized before you know it.
