How to prepare your kids for a move.

Moving is one of the most stressful situations that can occur in your lifetime.  Uprooting your family whether for a local or long distance move presents numerous challenges.  For children this is especially true because they most likely have never experience this process.

Here are some tips to help your kids make a smooth transition to your new home:

  • Work with your child on designing and decorating their new bedroom.
  • Plan a visit to the zoo, amusement park or playground in your new hometown.  They will view this as a fun and exciting new opportunity.  
  • Gather email & mailing addresses of their friends so that they can stay in touch.  
  • Be positive and upbeat, your children will pickup on your attitude!

Why you should use proper packing material.

One of the best ways to ensure the safe arrival of your household belongings (besides hiring a professional mover) is to use proper packing material.  

While "liquor store" boxes provide an economical way to transport belongings, they are not always the safest method.  Professional movers stock corrugated boxes that have been proven to withstand multiple moves.

The use of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and un-printed paper also will help protect your precious belongings.  Our office staff is always a call or email away to offer guidance on packing.
