  • Create a map for the movers that shows where they go
  • Put furniture directly in the room it is going to stay in
  • Color code boxes by your own system, or label the boxes by room
  • Unpack only one box at a time
  • Line boxes up against the wall in the room they go in, and have them facing the same direction so you can see the label of what is in each box
  • Know which room should be unpacked first (i.e kitchen and bathroom)
  • Pack appropriately – don’t over or under pack
  • Schedule in advance the time it is going to take you to pack and un pack; do rooms in order of importance
  • Don’t try to do too much at once; don’t be overwhelmed, you are on a set and planned schedule
  • Work together in an assembly line; make sure everyone knows their responsibilities
