So, you’ve moved into your new residence. Congratulations! You can settle down in your own sweet time and make this residence a home but before that, there are some tasks you need to take care of. Do not get intimidated. I know that you are tired of the physical pain and mental stress that you had to go through for the whole removal process of your entire household, but it’s your home…so you have to do it yourself.
Make a checklist of the tasks you need to perform once you are in your new residence. Believe me, it’s a lot more than just unpacking that you need to take care of. First of all, you have to clean the entire house from the inside as well as from the outside. You should clean your belongings as well, but that’s before the removal, not after moving into your new home.
Organize the furniture properly. It feels great to settle into a new home with all your belongings and arrange the furniture the way you want to. The best way to do this is to create a floor plan. It would help you make room for other purposes systematically. To get some ideas for creating your floor plan, you can turn to the internet as there are some really good tools available online.
Now it’s time to unpack. This particular chore can be nightmarish to those who do not like it. Again, it is your home, so your responsibility. Do your unpacking systematically by starting off with a plan. You have to take care of it before packing your things in your previous home. Categorizing each item based on the room where it would situate and labeling the packing boxes accordingly is all you need to do, and you will be reducing a lot of time for your unpacking at the new residence.
Arrange things in your closets. Every household has a cluttered and overstuffed closet. There is no need to make a fuss about it. Before you leave your old home, declutter your closets and keep everything in its place properly. That would save your efforts after arriving at your new residence.
Collect whatever relocation and transportation receipt your removalists Brisbane have to give you. Keep those papers at a safe and reachable place so that you can refer to them if need be.
Lastly, write down some emergency phone numbers and keep it handy. You never know when you need to contact an emergency service.
Happy settling down!
