How to Unpack After Moving in Manchester: Boost Your Unpacking Efficiency

So, you’ve arrived at your new place with all of your possessions. Congratulations! You’re over the most exhausting aspects of the moving process. Unpacking is generally considered much more enjoyable than packing because you’re setting up in your new home, and that is usually an exciting prospect.

The fact that it’s more fun doesn’t mean you should rush this stage, however. At Expert Removals, we know how important it actually is to unpack strategically. Why? Because if you get the unpacking part right, the months to come will be much easier to handle. We’ve learned that over our many years of handling Manchester removals.

Here are some top tips from Expert Removals on how to unpack efficiently. Once you’ve put these ideas into action, you’ll find that the settling-in goes a lot more smoothly.

1. Organise items by room.

Move the boxes for each room into the space that they will occupy first. This will be much easier if you labelled boxes clearly at your old place. If you didn’t, it might take you a while to figure out what goes where.

It’s best to do this now before you start actually emptying boxes anyway. If you empty everything at once in one space, you’ll quickly become overwhelmed.

2. Prioritise your process.

Consider which rooms you absolutely need to be functional first. You might choose to unpack the kitchen, for example, so you can cook dinner that day. You might prioritise the bathroom over the spare room because you’ll need to shower before work tomorrow.

Think about the items that are most urgently needed and unpack those boxes first.
It might be more fun to organise your ornaments or your bookshelves instead of your cutlery drawer, but those items can wait a while.

3. Use floorplan sketches.

Before you start assembling furniture, take a moment to sketch how you want your layout to look. Take measurements and ensure that everything will fit according to your plan. Some removals companies like Expert Removals are happy to help you assemble your furniture. If you prepare floorplan sketches in advance, they’ll be able to set up your space.

Without floorplan sketches, you may end up performing a lot of unnecessary heavy lifting. A little smart thinking prevents a lot of extra work.

4. Don’t cut corners.

You might be tempted to just throw boxes into cupboards or spare rooms to be dealt with “later.” The problem is that once your busy daily life resumes, it becomes less and less likely that you’ll find time to unpack these boxes. They could end up sitting there for months! We’ve seen that happen many times over our years of performing Manchester removals.

Rather than cut corners and procrastinate, commit to unpacking as comprehensively as possible. The goal is to make life easier in the future, not to leave tasks until later.

We understand that once you arrive at your new place, you might feel tired and lazy about finishing the job. Why not put some music on, invite some friends to help, and make it a fun occasion? A new place is certainly something to celebrate!
