Leaving it for Later

While you might be exhausted after a long move, it’s best to not wait too long before unpacking your belongings. While it’s definitely a good idea to decompress, you never want to get to the point where you really need an item only to discover that it’s still packed up.

Not Planning Your House

You should always have every room of your home planned out prior to the delivery of your portable storage container. If you don’t have a plan for where each box is going to go, all you’ll end up with is a giant pile of boxes with nowhere to put them.

Trying to Unpack Alone

Similar to packing, you should never try to unpack everything alone. This is especially true if you are moving furniture and large appliances like refrigerators and washers. Trying to unpack a whole home by yourself is not only overwhelming, but dangerous as well – so recruit the help of friends and family.

Not Cleaning as You Pack

After you’ve finished unpacking, the last thing you want to see is a giant mess of boxes and packing material – which is why you should always clean as you unpack. Staying organized while unpacking and cleaning up as you pack will save you from unnecessary work and stress down the line.
