Pre-Unpacking Tips From Honolulu Movers, Ewa, Hawaii

Pre-Unpacking Tips from Honolulu Movers

1. Paint

Before you start hauling out the rugs and wall art, you may want to get the painting out of the way. It will be easier to do before everything is in place and in need of moving again.

2. Ask About Garbage Day

Ask your landlord or neighbors when you should expect the garbage pick-up and how you should dispose of your household waste. You’ll have a lot of packing materials to get rid of, so this will be useful.

3. Check Items for Damage

Check your furniture and major appliances for any damage from the move. You can check the rest of your items later as you unpack. You’ll need to contact your moving company about liability if anything was damaged in the process.

4. Take Pictures

Take pictures of the empty rooms, including any marks on the walls or minor damage. They will be useful later when it’s time to reclaim your security deposit. 

5. Change the Locks

One of the first things you should do after moving in is change your locks. This will eliminate the possibility that someone else has access to your home. Make an appointment with a locksmith before you move in so you can get it done as soon as possible.

Moving is a big job. That’s why you should leave it to the professionals like Honolulu movers M. Dyer & Sons to make moving one less hassle for you. Call today at (808) 456-4200.
