Making Bed after MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Common sense would suggest that unpacking your boxes and setting up your furniture needs to simply go in opposite sequence from packing. And that is correct, to an extent--the coffeepot is generally last in, first out. However professional movers in Tulsa load moving trucks based on size and weight--not things you need without delay. They will work with you to ensure your essentials are loaded last, but you will very likely need to be available to help manage that undertaking, since your moving company in Tulsa won't understand the critical belongings from the common belongings without your instruction.

You'll want to create area in your automobile for the necessities, stow them there rather than adding them on the moving trucks. This way, it's not necessary to wait around for the boxes to unload, you are able to proceed to position cartons wherever they are supposed to be or keep them within your car until you require them so they don't get displaced in the mix.

Handling the Fundamentals

Technological innovations has made organizing a move so much easier--there are apps for anything from inventorying your household furniture to finding your new beloved coffee shop. MagicPlan is an app that allows you to virtually put your pieces of furniture in the new home, so that you can lead the movers where the recliner--and other bulky furniture--go on moving day.

Aside from positioning the couch, these are the primary tasks to do--even when the professional movers in Tulsa are unloading the moving van.

· Put together beds--your bedding never looked as good as it will the day you've moved to a new residence

· Make your beds

· Set up electronic devices--you do not have to wait around for the cable guy nowadays, in numerous areas you can plug in your modem and router and you will be good to go with your WiFi.

· Set up the kitchen fundamentals --coffee maker, toaster, and microwave

· Place towels and toiletries inside the bathrooms

Packing the Necessities

The takeaway here is that when you pack, you should have numerous boxes, bins, or tote bags of fundamentals--which will be more than a change of clothes plus a toothbrush. Heading room by room, these are typically what would be considered "fundamental" in most households.


Moving is a lot more art rather than science. When the outlook is for a sun-drenched day, you shouldn't count on it. Have extra t-shirts, blue jeans or shorts, and sneakers on standby in the event you get rained on. Pack sufficient clothes for a couple or three days for every family member--if one of you is very small, prepare an additional diaper bag.


Distinguish the everyday toiletries from the extras--this isn't a opportunity to deeply condition. Travel sizes are ideal for moving--go ahead and pack the "real thing" so that you don't have to worry over lotion. These are utter fundamentals --for a day or two.

· Toothbrush and toothpaste

· Bars of soap or body wash, and also washcloths.

· Hair shampoo and conditioner

· Hairbrushes, hair combs, along with a hair dryer

· Razors and shaving cream

· Moisturizers

· Ibuprofen or acetaminophen

· Band-aids

· Nail file or clippers--someone is going to crack a fingernail with all the moving


Oddly enough, a lot of moving checklists don't incorporate bedding within the essentials-to-pack-at-the-last-minute. You don't need to delay to pack your bedding, if that carton is clearly labeled and simple to access, it is possible to sock those aside any time.

· Bed mattress pads and pillows

· Sheets, blankets, comforters

· Bathroom towels

· Shower curtains, hooks, and liners

· Bath rug

Kitchen area

· Coffeepot, microwave, toaster, juicer

· Dishtowels, dish soap, dishwashing tabs

· Plates, cutlery, drinking vessels --a picnic basket is great for a move

· Paper towels

· Garbage can, trash bags

Cleaning Supplies

Odds are really good that you'll need to at the least wipe down the counter surfaces and inside of the refrigerator before you begin to put together any meals. If your new home is brand spanking new, it's clean--but most likely has settled dust. Ask your realtor for a housecleaning recommendation to ensure your new house is shimmering whenever you move in; or else, expect you'll clean. Subsequent to move-in, floors tend to need some TLC... even when the moving company set some type of floor protection on the paths.

· Extra paper towels or perhaps cleaning rags

· All-purpose bottle of spray cleaning solutions, toilet cleaners

· Wet mop

· Disinfectant

· Vacuum cleaner

WiFi and Electronics

Even though configuring the television might not be an enormous concern, ensuring that your WiFi is operational is--many folks don't have land telephone lines any longer, and your cellular carrier might not have wonderful service in your new location. You may grab the modem from your internet provider, or they may be willing to drop it off just before your move--organize that with your real estate agent. Pack your router and other electronic essentials separately from all the other equipment.

Relax --You've Got Time Now

You've got all the time in the world to unpack in Tulsa and get settled, however that all depends on getting a good night of rest, a good mug of coffee, as well as keeping the kids fed and entertained the next day or two.
