Tips To Make Packing and Unpacking Easier

Packing and unpacking are the worst parts of any move, especially if you have hired movers to actually take your items from one place to another. This is the part that people dread because they do not want to spend a lot of time packing just to have a mess to unpack. However, there are several ways you can make the unpacking part easier. The key is to take some time while you are packing to organize the boxes and make sure you have things where you want them.

  • Color code all of your boxes based on room. When you are packing up different rooms, use stickers to label where they should go. That way, you can easily unpack each room and have all of the boxes in there as you go. Make sure you know what color goes in what room so that you do not get them all mixed up during the move. 
  • Label your boxes and keep an inventory. At the same time that you are color coding your boxes, make sure that you are labeling boxes so that you know what is in them. It is also a great idea to keep an inventory so you can find any boxes that you need in no time at all. 
  • Pack a first night box. It is a nightmare to move everything in and have no idea where your toothbrush is on the first night. Save yourself from this by packing a first night box with all of the essentials you will need. Then you can get some good sleep and start tackling the rest of the home the next day.
