Some time ago we knew a man who moved with https://www.flashmoving.net/household-movers/apartment-movers/studio-apartment-movers/ 8 times in just 8 years, 3 of which were international. After staying in the same house for about 6 years (which had become almost unthinkable), he was forced to move again to a new house, going through all the uncomfortable stages associated with moving and everything associated with boxes. The new destination was not far, just under 400 meters, but the entire house still had to be moved. Having met this man, we tried to highlight several important steps for organizing a DIY move for all people who find themselves in the same position.
Here are some important steps for organizing your move.
Let’s start with the basic steps that will help you feel comfortable about moving without worrying or stressing more than necessary.
1. Plan a few months before your move to start organizing your wardrobe by eliminating all those items of clothing that have not been used for about 2-3 years. You may be struck by a common syndrome known as “new home”, which will open you up to an almost magical world, allowing you to imagine a new life with all the best solutions, such as diets, gymnastics… and, as always, it will only be a fantasy. One thing is for sure: new house, new things.
2. The same principle as your wardrobe can easily be applied to your children’s playtime. Give away all those games that your children haven’t played in a while. Fundamental advice: place them in unrecognizable boxes and try to keep them as far away from children’s eyes as possible, avoiding unnecessary complaints. The time that passes before the moving date can be designated as a probationary period, and if they are not asked, then you can consider yourself safe and give them to some family home. If they were asked after the move, they could justify themselves by blaming them for moving the items and the fact that they were probably lost or broken. There is no doubt that because of the trauma, they will begin to hate the word “moving” and everything that might remind them of moving. This will pass with time.
3. As just said, children hate moving, basically all children who hate change in principle. If they are old enough, you can try to help them adapt to the changes by involving them both in planning the move and in setting up and laying out the new home. You can give him a task, such as arranging furniture in a room, to make him feel like an integral part of the “new home” project.
In terms of working out some of the important steps for organizing the move, we are certainly not done yet, but we have put other steps on hold until our next assignment.
