Things Your Colorado Moving Team Wants You to Do Immediately At Your New Home

January 30, 2019

When you move to a new house, there’s more to worry about than just your belongings. Once your Denver movers arrive and unload the truck, you’ll be busy unpacking and getting to know your new home. That’s why it’s always important to take care of a few little things before the moving truck arrives. Here are a few of the most important tasks to take care of as soon as you arrive at your family’s new home.

Inspect the House for Damage

Ideally, you’ll get to the house before the moving truck and that means you’ll have a chance to inspect the house before your belongings arrive. Walk through the house and check for any issues or problems that may have happened after you closed on the property. Without the distraction of furniture and boxes, you’ll have the opportunity to look for damage that might otherwise be hidden by the rest of your home’s furnishings. If you notice anything wrong, make a note of it and call the appropriate repair expert as soon as possible. 

Move Boxes to the Right Parts of the House

No matter how carefully you direct the moving company, boxes will always end up in the wrong part of the house. Once everything is unloaded from the truck, check the boxes in each room. Move the ones that are out of place to the appropriate room. This will make unpacking easier and helps you stay organized throughout the process. Remember, the fewer loose items you have to move while you’re unpacking, the faster you’ll be settled into your new house. 

Make Beds a Priority

Everyone needs to sleep, especially after moving to a new home. Once the truck leaves, make the beds your first priority. Set up bed frames and unpack bedding before starting on the rest of the house. Once you’ve spent a few hours unpacking, you’ll be too tired to deal with making the bed. Best of all, if the bed is already made, you’ll be able to crash as soon as the urge strikes. 

Be Patient

Unpacking takes time and the last thing anyone wants is to feel rushed after a long move. Take your time and don’t be afraid to take breaks when you feel you need to. Prioritize items that you need immediately like dishes, toiletries, clothing, and entertainment items. Once those are unpacked, you can start working on other boxes. If it takes you a while to get through the rest of your belongings, don’t panic. Be patient, take a deep breath, and go box by box. This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed and reduce the likelihood that you’ll misplace items as you unpack in a hurry.
