Research suggests that relocating a family home is one of the most stressful common life events, even when hiring a professional moving company. This new guide from Movers.com helps families plan their upcoming move in an organized fashion, to minimize stress, and reduce costs.
More information about organization strategies for moving, packing, and unpacking methods, and estimates for local professional movers can be found at https://www.movers.com/moving-guides/how-to-stay-organized-while-unpacking.html
The recently published guide explores a range of options for planning an upcoming move, including DIY packing and moving, hiring full-service movers, and hiring a professional service to drive the moving truck. It also provides information about the supplies required for packing a family home, and 5 simple steps to help keep everything organized.
The most important step, according to Movers.com specialists, is ensuring that the entire load is organized from the beginning, starting with the packing process. The full report suggests a number of strategies, such as working one room at a time and packing similar items in the same box.
To ensure that nothing is missed during the packing, lost during the drive, or hidden away if it is needed, the report also suggests making a detailed inventory during the packing. This inventory should clearly label which items are in which box, which boxes go in which rooms, and whether each box is fragile.
This inventory can be used again during the unpacking process, to help find items needed immediately, and to check off items as they are unpacked, to ensure nothing was lost along the way. However, the report also suggests that when hiring a full-service moving company, the professionals often include this step in the process.
One important step mentioned in the report that is not included in a full-service move is cleaning up the new home before the truck is fully unpacked. This allows new homeowners to unpack into a freshly cleaned home and is often much easier than cleaning after the home is full of boxes and furniture.
