How Do I Unpack Strategically when Moving in Montebello, CA? Unpacking Order & More

Planning and executing a move is exhausting, both physically and mentally, even with the help of the pros. Once you have travelled to your new home and have received your home’s contents, the event is only officially over when the last box is unpacked. Unpacking can be a tedious chore that quickly becomes overwhelming and chaotic if it is not done efficiently. With this in mind, we at Prodigy Moving & Storage would like to offer some tips on unpacking in your new home following a move.

Unpack with a System

Know what it is you are unpacking before jumping in and randomly opening boxes. Hopefully, you made an inventory of your possessions and from that checklist, you can better unpack according to the boxes to the room they belong in. If not, do what you can to relocate the boxes to the room they belong.

Begin By Unpacking Necessities

Once the boxes are in the right room, start unpacking the necessities. The first boxes you kept in the car with you are usually the right ones to start on. These boxes should include your sundries, a day or two of clothing, medications, documents, and other basic important needs.

Unpack Kitchen Boxes

Unpacking the kitchen is the next step since the kitchen items need to be available for meals. It is a good idea to line the kitchen cupboards and cabinets first. Unpack only what you need, including pots and pans if there is no time to get it done in a day or you want the important things in every room.

Bedroom Unpacking

Getting your beds ready for the first night should be fairly easy, especially if you set aside a single set of linens for each bed when you packed. To make unpacking more productive and save you future work, install the shelving and closet organizing units first.

Unpack Bathrooms

You will quickly need to unpack towels, toiletries, and other bathroom items the day you move in to have a functioning bathroom. With a fully stocked bathroom, you can feel more at home. If necessary, stock the more important first and return later to finish. Body care products, medications, the shower curtain, and towels among other essentials.

Furniture Assembly and Arrangement. Make sure to assembly any furniture and have a plan of the general area you want the bookcases, entertainment centers and so forth be placed. Having the furniture put where it goes helps keep the rest of the unpacking organized.
Utility Areas. The garage, basement, and other utility rooms should be the last rooms to do. Before you start to unpack, try to organize the space since most garage items aren’t essential. To keep your home functional, make sure to unpack any tools and materials you’ll need. At your leisure, items for the patio, deck, or landscape can be unpacked last and set up.
