After the Move
When it comes to moving, so much emphasis is put on the packing and loading process that the unpacking process tends to be forgotten about until you arrive at your new home. It is important to have an unpacking plan so you don’t end up having boxes scattered all over your new home for months. This is where your mover and organizer can help you. They can assist with the unpacking and organization process so you’re not living out of boxes for the foreseeable future.
A full-service moving company, such as Liberty, will not only pack your items but can unpack them as well. Under your direction, the moving crew will unpack all your boxes and place them where you want them. This includes all furniture, dishware, kitchen appliances, clothes, and knick-knacks. The crew will handle all your items with care and most importantly, get everything unpacked in a timely manner.
Organizing Your New Home
An empty home is the perfect opportunity to get and stay organized, especially for those who tend to just throw stuff into closets and drawers. A professional organizer, such as Victoria Leone from Organized Therapy, can show you the best practices for keeping your home neat and organized. Organizers can also assist with purchasing the proper storage containers to keep everything from your refrigerator to your closet orderly.
As mentioned in part one of this two-part blog post, many people migrating south are downsizing their homes. This often means less available storage space. Having an organizer with a plan can help you maximize the storage space you do have in a way that is both functional and makes sense for you.
The emotional aspect of moving is often overlooked. People relocate for a variety of reasons, not all of them being happy. Whatever your reason may be, moving to a new home, in a new state, could be overwhelming and scary. During the unpacking process, your organizer can be there for emotional support just as much as they are there to set-up your home. They can hold your hand throughout the process, offer advice, or just be there to listen. Whenever your situation may be, having emotional support from someone who has helped other.
When relocating down south there is so much to take into consideration. Don’t make the mistake of doing it all on your own. Having professional movers and organizers to assist will help make the transition as smooth as possible giving you more time to spend relaxing in the sun.
