Moving can be a stressful experience, and unpacking is often one of the most difficult parts of the process. But you don't have to go through it alone - you can hire a professional unpacking service to help you out. Unpacking services can help you get settled in your new home quickly and efficiently. In just one day, your house may be completely unpacked and ready for you to enjoy.
Most companies offer no-obligation quotes, either online or by phone, so it's best to look for a service in your area. When you book a moving company, make sure to ask them if they partner with Move for Hunger, a non-profit organization that donates non-perishable goods that would otherwise be discarded. Additionally, some carriers do not move very heavy items, such as treadmills and elliptical machines, or if they do, they do so with an attached fee (often because they need additional staff to help move the item). If you have some items or need last-minute assistance that you weren't expecting, ask if the packers can come in the morning and schedule your move for the afternoon.
Most services are completed in one day; however, if you need to unpack your home in half a day, there may be an additional charge. The movers will also take care of packing and unpacking your belongings safely and securely. If your bathroom has ammonia, nail polish or nail polish remover, you'll need to discard or move them yourself. The costs of packing and unpacking services will vary by moving company, so you need to be 100% clear about what you're getting before you commit.
By bringing in movers to unpack and help set up your furniture and other belongings, you'll instantly feel calmer and more “at home”. The movers also did a good job of asking me where each of the boxes should go in the new apartment, so I didn't have to move the heavy boxes a lot during the unpacking process.
