Before you start searching for things to do after settling in North Bend WA, first, you must  move in properly

When people move to a new town, they are usually eager to start exploring and enjoying all the benefits the place has to offer. Still, even though it is possible to go out and relax immediately after the move, if you do not unpack and organize your new home you won’t be able to enjoy it completely.

Here is how your plan should look like:

  • Clean before movers arrive, while your home is still empty
  • Turn on your utilities, power, water gas, internet.
  • Check your items, unpack and reassemble your furniture
  • Arrange your items
Unpacked boxes after moving
First, you will need to unpack

Get to your new home before movers and clean

Cleaning is the most boring part of moving into a new home. It takes a lot of time and effort. Still, if you manage to arrive at your new place a few hours before movers, you will have an empty place that you can clean in an hour or two. Think about this before you go and prepare your cleaning gear.

Check if your utilities are up and running

While you are cleaning, check the utilities. Even though you have probably notified your utility companies about your arrival there is always a chance that something will not be turned on and that you need to call someone to do it.

Check your items as they arrive and start unpacking immediately

Once your movers arrive with your belongings, check the boxes to see if everything is there and in what condition. If you notice that something is missing or broken, notify your moving crew and create a written record of the condition of your items. If everything is ok, load the items that you will need into your new home and leave things that are going to storage units Lynwood with your movers.

Hopefully, you have hired unpacking services. If you have, your movers will start unpacking and reassembling your furniture, if not, you will have to do it on your own. If you will be unpacking on your own it is very important not to stop until everything is unpacked. That is the only way to make sure that you will not be living in box-clutter in the following days, weeks, or even months.

Assemble your furniture and arrange your items

Finally, if you haven’t hire packing and unpacking services, you will have to do it on your own. Of course, if you want to be quick and efficient, you will have to think about this before the move. Get a floor plan before you go and think where you will put your items after you move.
