After you complete the move, there are a few more tasks to accomplish.
After your move is complete, there are a few things you will need to do before you can get on with life as normal. It may be easy to overlook important post-move tasks because it feels like the hardest and most stressful part of the move is over. However, remembering to follow through will ensure you can get comfortable and organized in your new space as quickly as possible.
#1: Unpack It All
Unpacking is the most obvious thing to do after a move, and it usually takes the most amount of time. For many months after a move, there may be a few boxes around the house, in a closet or in the garage that still need unpacking. Because you may not use the items in the box daily, it can be easy to put off the unpacking of the last few boxes. However, if you truly want to close the door on the moving experience and get back to a state of organization, go ahead and find a place for everything in the boxes.
#2: Figure out What to Do with All the Boxes
The average move will use dozens and dozens of boxes. After the move is complete, the vast majority of these boxes are no longer necessary, but you’ll need to decide what to do with them. Most people will have four options: 1) throw them away; 2) recycle them; 3) keep them; or 4) give them to someone else who can use them.
Depending on your situation, you may use a combination of these options. Whatever you decide, empty boxes take up a lot of space, so you will want to break them down and figure out what to do with them as soon as possible.
#3: Get New Government Documents
Government documents refer to things such as driver’s licenses, car titles and vehicle registration. You will need to take care of this as soon as possible. Depending on where you now live, you might have a deadline when you need to complete these tasks.
It can be tempting to sit back and relax as soon as the moving truck pulls away, but by making sure you follow through with post-move tasks, you’ll be able to better enjoy your new space.
