Finding the Right Movers

Hiring the right moving company can make your life a lot easier, but finding the right one from all the moving companies out there can be quite a challenge. It’s not just as simple as looking up “moving companies” in the phone book. Choosing a moving service is one of the most important decisions in the moving process, and should be done with extreme care.

First off, there are dozens of different kinds of moving companies: local movers, house movers, furniture movers, piano movers, and long distance movers are just a few of the many moving services available. Exactly what your move requires should dictate which sort of moving company you hire.

Then there’s pricing. Not all moving companies are created equal and neither are their price lists. Moving companies can, and often will, provide very different estimates for the same services rendered. Getting the best quotes from moving companies just by dialing your way through the yellow pages could take hours. And even then you wouldn’t be completely in the clear. Some unscrupulous moving companies will provide consumers with low estimates, only to tack on extra charges once you’ve signed with them.

So when you’re looking up moving companies, be sure to read the fine print, and take all the time you can to find the perfect mover. In the end, it will save you much time and many headaches.

Helping Children Deal With Moving

Moving isn’t a challenge, it’s an adventure! When your kids move to somewhere new, there are some main topics of fear to confront for them: new home, new friends, and a new school. Here are some tips for you to help guide your children through this period of change.

  • Make it a priority to get your child settled into their room so they can feel more comfortable with their surroundings and begin to adapt.
  • Routine is a very important part of children’s lives. Maintain the old rituals of homemade pancakes on Saturday morning, or whatever you do together, right away.
  • Get your child involved with sports teams, clubs and school activities as soon as you can.
  • Encourage your child to make new friends and invite them over. The neighborhood is a very good place to start, so don’t let them be couch potatoes! You might even consider throwing a housewarming party to meet other families in the neighborhood.
  • Let the kids stay in touch with old friends through an occasional phone call or email. You may want to get them their own stationery set and stamps so they can write letters!
