Unpacking After a Move

Tips on Unpacking from the Top Moving Companies in Asheville, NC

Getting settled into a new home can be stressful and take time. But having a solid plan of action at the outset can make your life a little less stressful as you settle in. Top moving companies in Asheville, NC like Gasperson Moving & Storage should have labeled, or color coded the boxes from each room in your previous house. Doing this make getting into the right rooms in your house so that you can unpack them far easier. The best way to get started is to open the boxes for rooms your family needs to use first. These typically include bedrooms, bathrooms, and the kitchen.


  • In the Bedrooms – Start with boxes that contain the things everyone is likely to need first. This should include sheets, blankets, and of course pillows. If you have to be at work the day after your boxes arrive, be sure you located your work attire and keep them separate and easy to reach. Most moving companies in Asheville, NC will have hung all clothes that are on hangers in the appropriate closets. In most cases, your folded clothes will still be in the dresser drawers they belong in. Along with all of this, don’t forget you need to find your alarm clock.
  • In the Bathroom – Along with making sure everyone has a place to sleep and clothes to wear (especially for those who have to go to work the next day), you need to get the bathroom set up. Be sure you unpack everything needed for showers or baths. The list should include towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Be sure you bring a shower curtain with you, most of the time there won’t be one there for you, unless your bathrooms have glass doors. Finally, be sure you unpack everyone’s toothbrushes, toothpaste, and any cosmetics (for the ladies) that you might need for work.
  • In the Kitchen – Typically, your first night in your new home is the perfect time to order food and have it delivered. You can always use paper plates and plastic cups. You could do this for the first couple of nights or so until you have time to completely unpack everything. Before you get started, take the time to look at the kitchen cabinets and put together a plan of action that includes knowing where you plan to put everything.Then you can start unpacking your plates, cups, glasses, silverware, and cooking utensils. If you have things like bakeware and equipment, these can be left for last as you probably won’t be using them immediately. The idea is to make your new kitchen functional as soon as possible, so if you don’t plan to use certain things for a while, they can be left for last.
