It may have been a while since you've heard about some good tips for making moving fun for the whole family. We know how much of a hassle moving can be, especially if you have younger kids. So, if you aren't sure what you should do now that you're moving or if you want to make it easy on yourself by taking advantage of the free time that it gives you, here are a few ideas for moving that might help.
Give Everyone a Task
First, you need to keep the family members as busy as possible. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by getting them involved in the packing. You'll want to get them all on the same page about the type of things they should be packing. This will prevent them from being overwhelmed with what they need to do. And the last thing you want is a pack full of junk and not having a family member be able to use it because they couldn't find what they were looking for.
Keep Everyone Updated
You need to make sure everyone is informed about what they should and shouldn't do when it comes to packing. Don't let them know too early what is and isn't acceptable behavior. Tell them when to take their shoes off and when to put their coats on so that they know exactly when they're supposed to do certain things. The more information you give your moving family, the less they will be surprised by what you do during the move.
When you're trying to keep everyone from being overworked, the one thing that you can't afford to do is forget the family members that aren't involved in the packing process. Even though you're trying to keep everything together and stress-free, there will still be plenty of little tasks to worry about that your family members haven't even thought about. They may not be as involved as you want them to be, but at least they are still going to be able to help with getting things together and putting them together correctly.
Ask Other Family Members for Help
When packing for moving, remember to have family members that are interested in the process helping you with the packing. You may have had someone else pack your home or apartment before and it worked out great, but this isn't always the case with every family. There are going to be times that the move will go off without a hitch and you're going to need all hands on deck.
For these times, try a one-stop-shop approach. Instead of going through several moving companies to see what services they provide, you can go through only the services that you and your family need. You can get some moving quotes to help see what is the most affordable route to take. This way you won't be overwhelmed and you can find all of your moving supplies in one place, saving you time and money.
Make Packing Fun
In addition to hiring packers, there are some other things you can do to make packing for moving fun for the whole family a breeze. For example, instead of hiring movers, consider having your neighbors over and loading up their vehicles to come in and help. The best part about it is that you get the benefit of them being there to watch over the truck and help load the truck, helping you haul your furniture and other heavy items off the old house and putting them in the new house.
It's also a good idea to set up an actual garage in the backyard where you can park your car so that you don't have to worry about it at all when you're done moving. You can then use that space to store all of your moving supplies while your car is at the new house.
Although moving can be stressful, you can also create memories with your family as you say goodbye to your old home. With a few of these tips, it can be helpful to make the whole process a lot easier.
