PACK THE NECESSITIES SEPARATELY

Pack a few, small boxes of necessities, like paper towels, cleaning products, and medicines, separately, for immediate access. Don’t forget to label these boxes.

 

PACK A SUITCASE

Pack a few days worth of clothing and toiletries to sustain you through the unpacking process.

 

ASK MOVERS TO PLACE BOXES

 To save time, ask your movers to place your boxes in the rooms where they belong. To keep everyone on the same page, label each room with a large, clear sign.

 

CLEAN FIRST

Before unpacking, make sure your space is clean.

 

START WITH NECESSITIES

Unpack necessities, like clothes, bedding, dishes, first.

 

UNPACK BY ROOM

Unpack room by room, to ensure that your highest properties are unpacked first.

 

TOSS PACKAGING ASAP

To create more room while unpacking, get rid of all packaging, as soon as you’re able.

 

REFINE LATER

As you unpack, place things loosely, and refine down the road, once everything is unpacked.

 

DONATIONS

While unpacking, keep a box for donations handy.

 

OPEN EVERY BOX

Although it’s difficult, make an effort to open every box so you immediately know if something was lost or damaged.
