Each house move give you more experience in planning, packing and relocating your entire life. Most of us have undergone several moves, while others have less experience. For those who need some advice, we have three life-saving tips on unpacking to simplify your move.


#1: Designate

If you want to avoid unpacking everything at once and find yourself surrounded by clutter, set aside no more than three big boxes as your “open first” boxes. In these three boxes, include kitchen items, bathroom items and anything else you’ll need immediately in your new home. And don’t forget the toilet paper!

#2: Food and cleaning

Be sure that the place you are moving into has undergone a proper cleaning session. It is vital for you and your loved ones to move into a hygienic environment. Taking care of unpacking and cleaning simultaneously is extremely stressful.

Even though ordering pizza is somewhat a moving tradition, unpacking could last for days. Be sure to put a few cooking essentials in one of the aforementioned “open first” boxes.

Moving can be disorienting. Make your new house feel like home immediately with a special touch. Maybe it’s your favorite piece of are. If you are moving with children, bring out something dear to them to remind them that home is where the family is, not a physical location. Unpack one or two of these items first and settle in!

No matter which boxes you choose to open first, your first choice when moving should be H2H Movers. Our goal is to provide you with the best moving experience possible—no matter the circumstances.
