There are many unexpected twists and turns that are bound to happen to add to the stress. When it comes to moving home, having children can easily add to the pressure and it means you need a plan! Here are my tips to help aid the process.
Organise a council pick up
Get rid of everything before you move, use the three pile rule
Everything that is rubbish can go on the council pile, donate anything that you can’t use but is too good to throw out and sell anything that you can, the extra money will come in handy.
Label each box clearly.
This one is as simple as writing each room on the box and the contents, room 1 – miscellaneous.
Makes it so much easier to know exactly where each box needs to go.
Honesty is the best policy
As mums, we always try to sugar coat things for our kids. Change can be stressful for kids but when it comes to moving it’s not something you can hide. Try to keep your kids in the loop form the get-go and you can even make looking for houses a family outing. When moving day comes along, your little ones will feel way more at ease.
Don’t go it alone
We often think we will be able to handle the whole moving process alone. The truth is, it’s just not realistic. Getting help from a removalist can make the process a breeze. Hire a Mover have the professionalism and expertise to take charge of your move.

By hiring professionals this means you do not have to juggle your family and their needs while stressing about potential breakages or forgetting something. The staff at Hire A Mover do this every day and can take that stress away while you enjoy this exciting new time with your family!
Pack the fun way!
Packing will potentially be the worst part of the move as it can be boring and there is so much clutter to deal with. Turn packing into a fun activity by involving the kids and creating games such as whoever can pack the fastest wins! You could also take a step back from the label maker and allow your kids to utilise the boxes in a creative way.
Make setting up your child’s room the main priority.
By setting your child’s room up as soon as possible, it will make them more familiar with their surroundings. Unpack their favourite toys, blankets, books, and anything that will make them feel more comfortable. Make it fun, join in and unpack together emphasizing the excitement of their new space.
Take a step back & enjoy!
Amongst all the hustle and bustle of the move, it can be easy to forget how exciting it is! It’s a new chapter in you and your families lives and you should make the most of it.
Now that you have your belongings taken care of to make sure you get safely from A to B you can look forward to all the good times ahead!
