Relocating for the First Time? Here's What You Need to Know
When opting for packing services from a moving company, the process is typically separated into two distinct phases: packing and unpacking. This generally occurs days before the actual moving day. A specialized packing team, equipped with all necessary packing materials such as boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, tape, and markers, will arrive and carefully wrap fragile items, categorizing belongings by room or function. Furniture may be disassembled as needed and reassembled in your new home. Once everything is boxed up and labeled clearly, a detailed inventory list is made called the Bill of Lading. This will serve as a reference when loading the truck and upon arrival at your new home. The unpacking phase takes place after your belongings have been safely transported to your new residence. The unpacking team will open each box, starting with essential items for immediate use. Furniture is reassembled, electronics are set up, and items are placed in designated areas based on your preferences. Once the unpacking is complete, they'll remove and dispose of all packing materials, leaving your new space clutter-free and ready for you to settle in.
