How Can You Move House Easily When You Have Kids?:

Here are different ways to help you out!

Moving is stressful for anyone, but it can be especially difficult for families with school-age kids. To ensure that your children do not add to the stress of the move, as well as to make sure that your children are well cared for emotionally during this disruptive time, it is important that you take extra steps to help moving day run smoothly.

Hire Furniture Removalists 

It can be difficult to both look after the kids and make time to pack all of your possessions in the midst of playtime and school runs. Then, to ensure that you achieve a good balance between spending time with your kids and preparing for the move, you should consider hiring furniture removalists for your family home. By doing so, they can help you to pack and organise your possessions, transport your furniture and other goods on the day of the move, and ensure that moving long distances is made much simpler through their professional expertise. 

Explain the Move to Your Kids

Moving house can be emotionally upsetting and disruptive for children, especially if they have to move schools or leave friends behind. Then, the best action that you can take is to explain the move to your kids early on in the process, ensuring that they understand why you are moving and assuring them that they will enjoy their new life. A good way to help them feel more relaxed about the move is to get them involved in every aspect of the moving process to make it feel like an exciting activity or game. This can include having an input on the best houses to move to, whether they like the location of their new home, and even what school they believe they would enjoy the most.

Help Kids to Pack Their Possessions 

One of the most difficult aspects of moving with kids is packing all of their possessions and organising these appropriately. You should allow your children to be with you when they pack their things, choosing what they would like to keep and what they would like to leave behind. As they grow older, they may be able to do much of this packing by themselves, and you should give them the freedom to do so if they are capable. 

Get Someone to Look After the Kids on Moving Day

Moving day can be an overwhelming time for both children and parents. To make sure that they do not see you stressed and do not become stressed themselves, you should consider finding someone close to you to look after the kids on moving day. Not only can taking them away from the event lessen the elements that you have to balance, but it can also help them to adjust to moving much more easily, allowing them to enter the house for the first time when it is in a state of relative calm.

Plan Your Move’s Timing 

It is also important to plan the timing of your move to check that it does not clash with anticipated events in your child’s life or with their schooling. Moving outside of term time is advantageous as it means that your child can adjust to a new school at the beginning of a semester, while also giving you more time to focus on the moving process by eradicating other time-consuming responsibilities such as the school run.
