A Guide to Unpacking Your New Home

The truth is that no one likes the whole “packing and unpacking” process. You in a new home and a mountain of boxes staring back at you sounds like a nightmare that has turned into reality. Unpacking your new home doesn’t have to be dreadful and with the right tips, it can be fun! Our Fort Worth movers share their professional unpacking guide to save you time, money, and stress.


Unpacking Strategy

“Teamwork makes the dream work” is more than just a saying, it is the truth. When it comes to unpacking your new home, the more hands-on-deck, the faster it will go. This could be anyone from your neighbors, family, friends, and professional movers. The local Fort Worth movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage are the pros when it comes to unpacking. The secret? The inventory. Refer back to the inventory list you created before you packed, this is what the professionals do when trying to keep track of moving boxes. As you and your movers are unloading the moving truck, set the moving boxes down in the corresponding rooms. This will not only help you organize, but unpacking your new home will be so much faster.


Start with the Essential Moving Boxes

Once you have everything organized and a plan set in motion, the next step is picking and choosing what should be unpacked first. Our rule of thumb is to unpack the essential moving boxes of each room first. These are the boxes that store the items you use daily. In the kitchen, your cutlery, plates, cups, and your most used pots and pans. If you have children, their bedrooms need to go before yours and before anything else. Not only do you want your child to have a good night’s sleep in the new house for the first time, but with their bedroom set up, they’ll have a space to hang out in while you are unpacking you’re the rest of the house.


Don’t Try to Finish in One Day

Want to know the real reason people hate unpacking their new home? They stress and overwork themselves by trying to finish it all in one day. This is nearly impossible, not mention exhausting on the body and mind. Save some moving boxes for another day, unpacking your new home slowly, giving you a chance to settle in and nest. Sometimes it just takes a little time to clear your mind and come up with a solution you hadn’t thought of before.
