Unpacking Tips: What to Do First

Moving your business or home from one place to another is a challenging task. Apart from packing, organising, and transporting your belongings, you then have to unpack these items accordingly and make sure that no damage have been incurred during the transport of these items. You also have to make sure that no items were lost in the process.

Efficient packing and unpacking tips

For people who lack experience in unpacking, this task can certainly be a bit daunting. After all, most of these items are needed straight away in order for you to have a seamless transition into the new chapter of your life. It is therefore necessary that your packing and unpacking process is organised and efficient. For first time movers, this can be hard to achieve. In order to help you, Brisbane Moving and Storage has compiled a couple of tips that could aid you in achieving a successful unpacking process.

  1. Plan the rooms of your new place and the items that come with it.
    In order for you to have an effective packing process, and to aid you in grouping things together, you have to plan the layout of the rooms in your new place. After you’re done with the layout, group the items that belong in a single room and pool them together. That way, when you start to unpack, you can do it quickly without being overwhelmed in the process. 
  2. Have an organised packing process – make an inventory of your belongings.
    An efficient unpacking process requires effective packing strategies. According to About Home, you have to make an ordered list of the things that you want to move, group household items that belong in a single room, and pool your furniture together. If you apply this strategy, then you can easily unpack these valuables without the risk of losing items or not finding them at all due to putting items in boxes haphazardly. 
  3. You should unpack essentials before unpacking storage spaces.
    Unpacking, especially if you are not enlisting the help of moving companies, does not happen overnight. Since you have to work on a number of rooms and put items and furniture in their necessary spaces, you have to make sure that at the end of the first day of unpacking, you can run your household even at a minimal level. Moving.com, a website that specialises on effective moving strategies, suggests that in order for that to happen, you have to unpack essentials first.

Your household essentials include pots, pans, dishes, major appliances, beds, fans, and bathroom items. If, on your first day of unpacking, you were able to unpack these items, then you will be able to at least eat, sleep, and use the bathroom of your new home even without fully unpacking the rest of your valuables. Afterwards, you can start to place your storage spaces and put other household items in their places.
