Who doesn’t love unpacking gifts and wrapping from the chocolates and surprise gifts? I bet all love it, some do it passionately and some just tear up everything out of excitement. But there is one process, where nobody loves unpacking and it seems to be a tedious and boring work to do. Especially when you are short on help, time and patience to unpack your stuff after shifting to a new place. To make the task easier and less problematic, we are sharing some first-hand tips to unpack.
This tedious and boring job of unpacking can become easy with some planning and first-hand considerations. Being an active entity in the shifting process, we come across many people who face this problem and has to go through the pain of unpacking. To make the task easier and less problematic, we are sharing some first-hand tips to unpack to simplify the process.
Start With Cleaning And Repairs
Nowadays when you shift in a new house, basic painting and cleaning are provided by the owners if it’s a rented place. Even if you are shifting in your own recently purchased flat, it comes in a ready to move state. Still, in order to make it ready to live happily, you need to give it a personal touch with some painting, wall coloring, light fixtures, or customization in kitchen or bathroom fittings.
So, it is advisable to keep the house empty and not unpack other stuff before the cleaning and repairing equipment in hand. Painting your bedroom or kid’s room wall will be convenient if it is empty. You might prefer a rain-shower or hand-shower by removing the pre-installed basic shower head in the bathroom of your master bedroom, it will be convenient to install them when you have no worries of making it dirty.
Once you are over with the painting, repairing or fixing other things as per your personal taste, open the box containing hardware tools. You will need a hammer, screwdriver, POP or white cement etc. to make a place to hang paintings, framed photos or kitchen utensils in place.
Unpack Boxes By Room
We explained it in our previous blogs on packing tips, why it is important to pack boxes by room? If you did that while packing stuff before moving, unpack in the same manner and open your boxes by room. Adjust things room by room, rather than opening everything at once. This way, at the end of the process, you’ll have a neat and clean house where things will be in place and you won’t need to do much to make it like the previous place you were in.
Maintain Predefined Order While Unpacking
In our previous blogs, we suggested creating a moving plan that includes both packing and unpacking order. Though it depends upon individual preferences, we suggest unpacking in the following order:
- Clothing, then
- Everything else
Following these basic and easy to adopt tips will reduce the worries of unpacking. Though, if you are among people who want no-frills shifting experience and look for professional help who take care of everything including packing at source city and unpacking at the destination city, it can be a better decision to hire an expert relocation partner.
