Planning a Move with Kids

I feel kids are one of life’s greatest gifts to parents. However, planning a move with little ones in your home can be extremely stressful. While you vigilantly pack belongings in boxes, your kids might begin determinedly unpacking them. Or you may not find the time to pack your things until your children go to bed at night. At that point, you might feel too tired to get started. If you can relate to these scenarios, consider hiring a reputable moving company. Professional movers can do the heavy lifting for you while you do what you know how to do best, take care of your kids.

Tips For A More Successful Townhome Move

Florence Gomez

Moving your household is one of the more stressful events that you will likely experience as an adult. Moving requires you to plan, pack, and often hire help for the heavy lifting or transport of your possessions. Here are some tips to help you move out of your townhome and make it an easy and successful process.

Start Early

When you are planning an upcoming move, time is something you need to manage and use wisely, otherwise, it can get away from you. Your move timeline should be set up in advance so you know exactly when tasks need to be handled and so you are not left hurrying to get it all finished in one or two days. 

Start out by listing all the individual tasks you need to take care of for your move, including acquiring moving supplies, hiring a moving service, packing valuables, setting up and disconnecting utilities, and inspecting your new place. Once you have a list you can organize the list by time frame and set up a schedule with your calendar of all the tasks and when you can complete them. For example, if you need to give notice to the landlord that you are moving out of your townhome rental, make sure you provide the required 30-day notice and that you are at the end of your rental contract.

Look For Moving Services

With a move, there is packing, moving, and transporting your possessions from your old townhome to your new place, which can require a lot of physical work. Moving services are a great way to minimize the stress and fatigue that can accompany a household move. If you are doing a move by yourself, it is good to plan for movers to help you, especially when your home has several floors and stairs to maneuver. Professional movers have the equipment, such as hand trucks, straps, and other lifting equipment to more easily get your furnishings and boxes out of the home and into the moving truck.

If you are handling some or all of your own packing leading up to the physical move, you can take some measures to make the packing and the move easier. Leave items in your dresser drawers, and then on the move day, the movers can remove each drawer and move the lighter and empty dresser. You will also have a lot of linens, towels, sheets, and other fabrics that you need to pack up. Use these items as cushioning when you pack breakables, such as dishes, into the moving boxes. Then, your movers will be able to transport your boxes with a hand truck down the stairs, out of the townhome, and into the moving truck.
