It's never too soon to start planning. Start doing small stuff a couple of months before you move. If you continue to do a little bit every week, you'll be surprised at how smoothly everything will go when moving day arrives.
Pros vs Doing it Yourself
Congratulations, you’re moving! (or thinking about it, anyway.) Whether you’ve just bought your first condo or are upgrading to a larger home, you basically have two choices: do it yourself or hire a mover. Here are some questions that will help you figure out your best option:
Moving with Kids
In all of the hustle and bustle, parents sometimes overlook the children, who are very concerned about the upcoming move. For children (and teenagers) a move means leaving everything that is important: their home, their school, their teams and clubs, and their friends. They are not normally involved in the decision to move, and many times do not understand the necessity to move. It's a frightening prospect.
Moving with Pets
Moving is tough enough on humans – imagine how overwhelming it would be if you didn’t understand what was going on. When you’re moving with pets, the boxes, the commotion and tension can add up to confused, stressed – even sick – animals. To keep your cat or dog (or iguana) calm and relatively happy during your move, all you need is a little planning – and maybe an extra treat or two.
