September 11, 2023

With over three decades of experience in building remarkable communities and top-quality new homes in Richmond, VA, Boone Homes knows how exciting it is when your long-awaited moving day approaches—but there’s no doubt that it can be overwhelming if you’re unprepared. From packing to scheduling, the pressure of moving can bring with it a whirlwind of tasks and emotions, but with proper preparation, this process can become a breeze. To ensure your transition into your new Boone Home is smooth and laid-back, we've put together some valuable tips to help you settle in comfortably.

Step One: Plan Ahead

Moving into your new Boone Home is a significant milestone that you’ll always cherish, and proper planning is key to a stress-free transition. To kickstart your moving journey, you’ll want to compile a detailed checklist that includes tasks such as packing, hiring movers, notifying utility companies and changing your address. A well-organized plan will help you stay on track during this period. Consider creating a moving timeline that outlines when each task needs to be completed, and you can even divide up these tasks by family members. This timeline will serve as your roadmap, ensuring that you don't forget any crucial steps along the way—helping alleviate much of the stress associated with moving.

Step Two: Declutter and Downsize

Before packing, take the opportunity to declutter your belongings. Moving into a new home provides the perfect opportunity to evaluate your possessions and part with items you no longer need. Consider donating or selling these items to local places around Richmond to streamline your move and make space for the things that truly matter. This step not only lightens your load—but also ensures that your new Boone Home is filled with items that bring you joy and functionality. It's a chance to start fresh and create a living space that reflects your style and needs, allowing you to embrace the full potential of your new Richmond, VA lifestyle.

Step Three: Pack Efficiently

Getting everything you own into boxes and transporting them to a new house can take a real toll. There are a few things you can do to make the packing process simpler—and likewise, your move. First, you’ll want to label your boxes clearly and consider packing essentials separately. Having immediate access to items like toiletries, bedding, a change of clothes, medications and kitchen essentials will make your first night in your new home more comfortable. When you’re packing up your home, focus on one room at a time. This approach will help you stay organized and make the unpacking process smoother. Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to, making it easier to locate items when you arrive at your new Boone Home. You can take it one step further with extra details, like “Kitchen - Pantry” and “Kitchen - Upper Cabinets” if you really want to plan ahead. Having these boxes neatly packed and correctly labeled will help you settle into your new home with ease, even amidst the chaos of unpacking.
