We get it. The packing is one thing, but unpacking when your removalist has delivered all your goods and then you have to make it all fit. Well, you might find yourself unpacking more than furniture – you may be tempted to unpack a few f-bombs, soo. Here are some of the frustrations and tips to help you – whether you are moving from Perth to Sydney, or going from South Perth to Broome.
1. Have a removals unpacking plan:
Trying to wing it when unpacking your new home will only leave you feeling frazzled and stressed. Before you start, take a few minutes to plan out which rooms you’ll tackle first and what needs to be done in each one. Think about what you need for essentials, e.g. setting up the kids or delegating their rooms first.
2. Don’t do do too much unpacking at once:
Unpacking everything in one day is not only unrealistic, it’s also a recipe for disaster. Pace yourself and take breaks often, otherwise you’ll quickly become overwhelmed and bogged down by the task at hand. Remember to check if your removalist has a pack/unpack service. If you want to utilise this, it is handy to have everything labelled.
3. Know where things go:
One of the most frustrating things about unpacking is not knowing where to put everything. To avoid this, make sure you label all your boxes with a general idea of what’s inside. That way, you can easily put things away in their proper place. Check with your removalist if they have boxes that you can purchase to assist with your moving process. Luckly, the Crusader Removals team can help you with this.
4. Make use of vertical space when unpacking:
If your new home is feeling cramped, try to make use of vertical space by hanging things up or using shelves and organizers. This will free up some much-needed floor space and help you stay organised. Alternatively, if you have larger items, your options are to place them in storage, or to sell them or donate them. If you want to look at storage, Crusader Removals offer a container storage solution.
5. Stay Resilient and get Unpacked
It’s easy to feel like throwing in the towel when unpacking your new home, but don’t give up! With a little patience and perseverance, you’ll soon have everything in its rightful place.
