Whenever we move, we've always done our unpacking, and it usually takes us weeks to get it all done. In fact, we still have a few boxes in our garage that are still waiting to be opened from our last move. So when a friend said that she'd hired an unpacking service for her last move, I understood why. Within a day her house was completely unpacked and looked like it had been lived in for a lot longer than that.
