While some believe that getting their belongings from one home to another is the hardest part, others find unpacking everything just as daunting. That's why having a game plan for situating into a new place is just as important as the one for getting out.
Whether a person has hired movers
, rented their own truck, or used a portable storage
service, making sure that all of their belongings are in their new place is the first thing to take stock of, according to MSN. In addition to that, consumers should check for any damages. If anything seems awry, a claim should be filed with the moving service
if one was used.
Unpacking usually takes a few days. One of the first items of business should be assembling and putting furniture in place, the news source said. Putting labeled boxes
in their appropriate rooms will also make the process easier.
"Try to stay focused," moving expert and author Sandee Payne told MSN. Packing
well will also relieve some of the pressure associated with unpacking, she added.
Other experts also advise unpacking one room at a time. People are more likely to finish the whole process quickly, instead of leaving many rooms incomplete.
