Moving Day!

Ideally you want all the packing to be done before moving day, so that on the day, all you have to do is to load the van and go. If you can get the van pre-loaded the day before, so much the better!

Unpacking.

I like to unpack all the boxes as soon as possible (I’m a bit of an unpacking Ninja) as it then forces me to put things away. One thing I often find in my clients’ homes is packed boxes from previous moves, so I always think it’s a good idea to get rid of the boxes as soon as possible.
