Best tips to unpack after moving houses

When you have to shift houses, packing and moving may seem like the most difficult part, but with a good moving company in Abu Dhabi, things will be pretty smooth on that front. Unpacking in a new house, when you’re already tired from moving, can be daunting. Here are some points to remember to ensure smooth unpacking.

1. Pack by need, not category

Accepted logic says ‘Pack similiar things together’, whereas it makes more sense to pack a separate box of essential materials only. Get some packaging materials in Abu Dhabi and put together items necessary for the first day of moving - basic appliances, food items, clothes, bed linen, toiletries, etc. Open these and get settled, post which you can unpack other boxes at your own pace.

2. Get help

While the elders of the family may want to do everything on their own, you must let everyone contribute to unpacking. Young ones may be given sturdy and safe items to unpack, and if they have a say in how their room will look like, they will be more enthusiastic about moving.

3. Personalize unpacking

Each household has different priorities, and the unpacking should reflect that. If your life is centred around food, set up the kitchen first. If you can’t live without your TV or laptop, those should be the first to come out of the boxes to have a smooth transition.

4. Check against inventory

We’re assuming you will have made an inventory list to minimize loss and theft, so once all the items are in, check them against the list you’ve made. Track items that seem to be missing. Do this when all boxes are unpacked and save yourself some panic and stress.

How to store expensive clothes to extend their life

Clothes maketh man (and woman, too). All of us have a few outfits that are the pride of our wardrobe, clothes that are high on both investment and emotional value.  Such statement pieces, however, are worn quite infrequently, so it’s the sensible thing to do is use personal storage in Abu Dhabi and save on precious closet space.

Here are some tips to store your sartorial beauties.

1. Spic and span: Your clothes, especially the ones that you have worn even once, need to be cleaned according to care instructions. Sweat, dust, perfume and makeup stains become more harmful to clothes in storage.

2. Wrap ‘em!: Most expensive pieces have studs, embroidery or other designs that can get entangled or spoiled. Wrap such pieces in muslin cloth and layer each fold with natural butter paper for utmost care.

3. Packing: This stage depends on the kind of material. Pack in a way that there is some air flow to the clothes as they will turn musty otherwise. Use hangers sparingly as they cause clothes to stretch and lose shape. Garment bags are preferable over plastic bags.

4. Storage: Use sturdy plastic boxes in place of cardboard cartons as cardboard is a magnet for fungus, mice and insects. Label each box correctly and set aside. Stack each outfit well, starting from heavy ones at the bottom, and the lighter and smaller pieces at the top.

Once you’re done, take your packed boxes to personal storage in Abu Dhabi and keep them stored for as long as you want! This way, your wardrobe is free for everyday outfits while your expensive and dear pieces are safe and secure in storage units in Abu Dhabi.

Essential things to Sort-out Before the Movers and Packers Arrive

The moving day brings with it a whole lot of things to keep you busy throughout. In order to make things very much simpler and quiet, we have listed some to-do hacks before the movers and packers arrive.

1. Create a no-pack area

This should be your first priority; to select a room or area where you will store all the items that will go with you to your new place. In simple terms, that area will be your no-pack zone. Make sure that you inform your movers and packers team that you intend to pack and move the items stored in the no-pack area yourself before they start to pack and move things.

Tip- To be on the safe side, stick a label with the words reading, ‘DO NOT PACK’ on the boxes that are placed in the no-pack area.

2. Prepare the boxes for the move

Just remember that once the movers have packed up and loaded your boxes of items into the moving vehicle, you will not have access to them until you reach your new place. Hence, whatever things you think you will need frequently during the moving journey, have them packed and placed in such a manner that you can access them anytime.

Don't Overlook These Important Things On The Moving Day

Are you planning for a move to your new house? Here is a checklist you will want to go through to prevent overlooking any essentials you will need on the first day in your new house.

1. Fundamental cleaning essentials

Before your moving journey begins, you must have dreamt of your new home with spick-and-span corners with no dust. However, the reality is much different than expectations. From a personal experience, I would strongly recommend to keep your cleaning supplies handy so that any kind of dust bunnies, spider webs and so on don’t turn you off. Also, remember that the floors will get dusty during the move.

2. Corkscrew

This is a must if you happen to raise a toast on your first night in your new house. Whether you’re going to celebrate with a wine glass or beer, ensure you know where the corkscrew is or it might just screw your happy hours. You don’t want that to happen, do you?

3. Batteries

These would seem to you as a trivia, but trust me, absence of these can make you go awry. Just imagine it’s your favourite football match that is going to go LIVE, and you have everything ready from pizza to a nice chilled beer. Your friends are ready with their slices in hand. You press the button on your remote and damn! It doesn’t start. All stores are closed!
