Hauling all the stuff of your home, sorting it out and packing it may seem like a monstrous task but it’s really not that complicated. The fact is if you plan every aspect of packing in a precise manner then the process of packing and unpacking would be a lot easier.
If you don’t want to do it yourself alone, you can ask your friends, family or neighbours to lend a hand. You can also hire professional furniture removalists in Sydney who are eager and willing to pack and unpack your stuff for you.
- Plan Ahead
When you are packing your stuff, you need to picturize the rooms of your new home. This will help you to sort things out and pack in a better manner. For instance, if you have a separate work room in your new home, you can pack all the office related stuff in a separate box and put brown tape on it.
The colour of the tape should be different on other boxes as it will help you identify which box is for which room. You can even visualize which files would go in which cabinet and which stationery will go into which drawer.
This way, you will be able to pack items that go in the same cabinet in a single box. The result, the time taken in unpacking these items and replacing them at the right places would reduce.
- Only Essentials
This rule applies to whether you are packing stuff for your home or a business. You must never take stuff that you will no longer need in the new home. For instance, if you have a hammock in the new home, there is no need to take your swing chair with you as it will not be utilized much when compared to a hammock.
You must also remember to clean up after the packing is done so that the new owner of your house doesn’t have to deal with all the items you left behind. You can easily call up a waste removalist company to do the job in a few hours or donate the stuff to a charity.
- Perfect Placement
When you hire a furniture removalist in Sydney, be sure to ask its people to agree upon setting up the boxes in the new home as per your directions. If possible, give them a list describing which boxes need to go in which room. For example, the boxes with red tape are for the kitchen while the boxes with black tape are for your living room.
If you don’t take this step, the furniture removalist in Sydney may simply stack all the boxes in the living room and be done with it which will make unpacking a disaster for you.
- Don’t Rush
After you have moved into the new home, you should take the day off. Just unpack the essential items like plants, clothes or electronics and then go have some rest. Don’t worry about the unpacking too soon.
Even when you start unpacking stuff on a daily basis, there is no need to set unreasonable targets such as setting up your bedroom in one day. You can do it one suitcase or one box in a day. This is essential especially when you have a full-time job.
