4 Things to Do After the Moving Company Finishes the Job

January 14, 2019

The period of time leading up to a move can be overwhelming for so many different reasons, one being the sense of unfamiliarity you may feel when you’re finally moved out of your old home. Up until this point, the only thing on your mind was letting the moving company you hired to get your belongings safely to your new home. When the moving company leaves and you’re left with a stack of boxes to go through, that overwhelming sensation can come back all over again. So, what should you do now that the moving job is finished? Don’t let the disarray send you into a spiraling state of panic! Here are 4 things you can do in order to get settled into your new home.


1. Set Up the Essentials

You might not have the time or energy to start unpacking everything you own the second you get into your new home. However, you should have a plan in place that will allow you to unpack the essential items you’re going to need for your first night at home. You’ll probably want a change of clothes, toiletries, shower supplies, and bedding materials. There’s nothing worse than preparing for a good night’s sleep than realizing you have no idea where your pillows and blankets are. Trust us, it’s happened before, and it’s no fun!


2. Start Unpacking Those Boxes

Now that you’ve had some time to relax and get situated, it’s time to start unpacking the mound of boxes you’ve have piled around your home. Hopefully, you labeled them, so you’ll have a general sense of what kinds of items are in each of them. This way, you can unpack my room in order of what’s most important. Unpacking your linen closet might not be as important as unboxing all of your kitchen and bedroom supplies. Clearing away all the boxes and organizing things where they go will help you get acquainted will your new spot, making it feel more and more like yours.


3. Check for Damage

The moving company you hire will do everything in their power to keep your belongings free from damage like scuffs, scratches, or worse. However, accidents do happen, which might not be noticed until you go through the items hidden in boxes or examine your furniture up close. Most reputable companies will have a damage policy in place that they’ve discussed with you prior to your move, so if you do find any damage to your items, make note of it in order to reach out and get it taken care of.
