Get Settled Unpacking after Moving to New Home

Moving Hacks to Get Settled Fast at Your New Home

While moving to a new home can be both exciting and stressful, it can take some time to get settled in. With boxes to unpack, items to be put away, and a new routine to get used to, it can take a few weeks for your home to feel, well, like a home. The good news is that there are some ways to speed up this process so you can start to settle in as soon as your moving boxes arrive.

No need to wait! Follow these 5 moving tips from your friends at Florida’s Best Moving.  

Plan the New House in Advance  

Ok, this may seem like a no-brainer, but often people make a move without planning the place to move into! While many may know how many rooms your new place will have, it can be stressful to make a move when you don’t know exactly if your sofa or furniture will fit.  

Use a virtual room planner or if you can walk the space first, measure things out before you move. This will help you to know what to pack, donate, or purchase for your new space!  

Pack an Essentials Bag  

Pack a small bag that contains the essentials that you will need for your first night in your new home. This bag should include a change of clothing, chargers for your phone or laptop, toiletry items, and any medications you need to be comfortable. By packing these items in one easy to locate place, you won’t need to spend hours digging through your moving boxes to find what you need for your first night. Moving day is already stressful. Don’t make it harder on yourself!

Set Up Beds First  

Moving day is tiring, and who wants to sleep on an air mattress? Not us! There’s nothing like falling asleep in your bed after a long day.

Put Small Items in Ziplock Bags  

Packing away chargers, cords, screws, bolts, etc. in a plastic baggie can help save you a major headache later on. Just make sure to label them! This hack isn’t only for small electronic items, use Ziplock bags to pack up spices, and kitchen utensils, as well as your children’s small toys, bathroom items, and other small items around the house!  

If you need help figuring out what to pack when, we’ve got a moving checklist you’ll want to check out!  

Color Code and Label Boxes By Room

Take the time to clearly label each moving box, and take it one step further and color code each box with a sticker indicating which room it belongs in. This not only helps us make your moving day easier but when you go to unpack, you already have the right boxes in the right place.  

Moving tip: Mark each room in your house (above the door or entryway) with the color that correlates to the colored sticker on your boxes. This ensures that the right boxes end up in the room they are supposed to be in and you can get settled fast!  

Make the House Your Own

Most often, artwork and family photos are the last things to be unpacked and put up on the wall. Unpack these items as soon as possible to give your home some character and help you feel more at home. By making these items a priority soon after you move in, your new space will go from being a house to a home!  

It can take time to feel at home and comfortable in your new space, but if you follow these tips when preparing for your move, you can get settled in quickly!
