Moving day can be stressful. You have so much to worry about already with the movers and keeping track of your stuff, and not to mention the endless unpacking process and getting familiar with your new neighborhood. However, there are ways to make moving day easier on yourself and your loved ones.
1) Pack a "first-day" box.
When the movers finally leave, the unpacking process begins. You may not be ready to unpack right away, and the last thing you want to worry about is where you packed your essentials. Save yourself time and stress by packing a "first-day" box. In this box, include everything you'll need for your first night at home. Pack any toiletries, necessary clothing, and anything else you'll want for the next morning, even your coffee pot.
2) Take photographs of the boxes.
As you pack, take photographs of what's inside the boxes. Then, when you seal the box, make sure you label the box and the photo as well. That way, if you are wracking your brain for where you put a specific item, you can refer to your photo log. It will save time and stress in the unpacking process.
3) Photograph electronics and computer equipment and how you plugged them in.
As you pack up your office and any major electronics, be sure to photograph how you plugged in things. More than likely, you don't have access to a manual to refer to when settings things up again. So, with the photograph, you can refer to this picture when setting up your home office or electronics or other media equipment. Also, when boxing up cords, put cords that belong together in the same bag.
4) Keep your stuff in the drawers.
An easy way to save time and energy in the moving process is to leave everything in drawers as much as possible. You may not be able to if a drawer is holding something that could break in the moving process. However, when it comes to junk drawers, or side tables, or dressers, if the items inside won't break easily, like soft items, it's easier on yourself if you just leave them inside. Simply wrap the drawer in plastic to keep the drawer shut.
With these tips in mind, you are saving yourself time and energy in the unpacking process. Now that you are in your new home, you can contact Nolan Agency for home insurance policies that meet your family's needs.
