Master the Art of Unpacking

Master the Art of Unpacking

It’s moving day and you have unloaded all your boxes and furniture into your new home. The last thing you want to do is start unpacking after a long day of moving, but the Fort Lauderdale movers at All My Sons are here to help you master the art of unpacking. If you follow this guide, you will be unpacked in no time and you will be able to enjoy your new home before you know it!

The first thing you should do before you unpack is clean. Do a thorough cleaning throughout the entire house, because no one wants to have dust and dirt underneath their belongings in the closet and on the floor. After you clean, start unpacking the essential items. These items include: change of clothes, bedding, towels, toothbrush, toothpaste, toilet paper, soap, shampoo and conditioner, paper towels, pet food and bowls. You should also pack some basic tools with these essentials, because you will need some tools to open boxes and assemble furniture. The last thing you want is to dig through a ton of boxes to find tools. According to our team of Fort Lauderdale movers, these things are best packed in the car and not in the moving truck, so that they are easily accessible.

Start unpacking the kitchen first. You can start with the food and then the dishwashing and cleaning supplies, followed by plates, silverware, drinking glasses, pans, and everything else in between.

Next, unpack the bathrooms because they are the easiest to unpack. Should you live in cold weather, you should unpack the coat closet next because this is a priority. Before you unpack the bedrooms and rest of the closets, unpack the laundry room. Dirty clothes tend to pile up during moving, so set up your laundry room before all the clothes pile up. Now, you can start unpacking your bedroom and start filling closets and dressers. You can move onto the dining room and the family room now. It might get frustrating setting up the television and entertainment systems, so take your time. The same goes for the home office. Home offices encompass a lot of technology and equipment, so before you get overwhelmed, just take your time.

Once you have all your rooms unpacked, you should then move onto the garage, basement, and storage spaces. These spaces should be unpacked late in the process because it could take you weeks to get these the way you want.

A tip from the Fort Lauderdale movers: lay all packing materials flat after unpacking to make sure you don’t miss any small items.
