Before your moving day gets too close, you'll want to start thinking about the packing process. While you may have contacted a Boise moving company for packing and delivery of your furnishings and possessions, the days leading up to your move are also a good time to plan for the unpacking process. By taking time now for a moving-in strategy, you'll save yourself a lot of stress later. Here's some helpful advice to streamline the entire process.
- Getting rid of excess goods — Moving is a big job. Even if a Boise moving company is handling the heavy lifting, you'll still want to go through your things well in advance of moving day. Plan to go through one room at a time, setting aside items you don't want and selling them online, at a yard sale, or donating them to charity. Getting rid of unwanted items before your move makes the move-in process a lot easier.
- Decide what you'll need first — There's nothing worse than arriving at your new home only to have no idea which box holds your pillows and bed sheets. A professional Boise moving company will have everything clearly marked, but you can help make things easier for yourself by designating essential items with an "open this first" priority status.
- Home sweet home — Choose some items that say "home" to you and your family to open first. They may be family photos, a special throw for the living room, or a scented candle that reminds everyone of special times together.
