You’ve probably read a lot of tips and tricks about packing for a move, but what about advice on how to unpack afterward? The process is just as stressful so we have compiled a few pieces of advice to help your move-in seamless.
Distribute your boxes thoughtfully: One of the tips you probably read when looking up tricks to make moves easier was to label your boxes. Now is the time to utilize this trick by placing your boxes in the correct rooms. Your labelling system will come in handy as you move boxes to the appropriate rooms to keep from having a huge stack of boxes by the front entrance. Now you only have to sort through everything once instead of twice.
Clean before anything else: Your apartment in West Palm Beach was cleaned before you took the keys; however, there is peace of mind in cleaning something yourself. Wipe down the counters, sweep the floors, and line the drawers before you begin to unpack or even unload the moving truck.
Unpack your rooms by importance: We recommend unpacking your things by room versus by grabbing the essentials and leaving the rest for later. It will be best to unpack your bedroom first because after a long day of moving, you’ll be exhausted. It’ll help to have your bed waiting for you instead of knowing you still have to put the sheets and blankets on at the end of the day. Second to the bedroom would be the bathroom and kitchen, whichever you prefer.
Declutter again: You were probably advised to declutter and throw things out or recycle them when you were packing to move, but doing it again after your move is never a bad idea. After you’ve been in your new apartment for a couple of weeks, take a look at the items you’ve left in boxes. Do you really need them or do you have a place for them in your new home? Have you even missed them since they’ve been packed away? If the answer to these questions is no then consider donating or throwing away the items. There’s no sense in having half-empty boxes laying around or storing these items if you won’t use them again.
