Moving With Children

Moving house with children who are old enough to help out can be an exciting experience, particularly if the children haven’t moved house before. Better still, the older ones will provide much need extra pairs of hands both leading up to the move and on the day itself. Well before the moving date get them sorting through their own toys, books and other possessions and making piles of those things they definitely want to take to the new home, those that can be thrown away and those that can be donated to charity. This is a useful exercise in teaching children how to de-clutter their rooms. Give them special boxes, just for them, labelled with their names in which they can pack their belongings.

If they have any particularly fragile items wrap these carefully for them (depending on their age) and pack in a separate box labelled “fragile”. Encourage the children to start creating change of address cards for their friends these can either be done as craft activities for younger children or designed on a computer for older children. This task can keep them occupied for several days while you continue packing your own and the household possessions. You can also encourage them to think about ideas for decorating their own rooms in the new home maybe they could start a scrapbook of ideas this will make them feel involved in the move and start to look forward to their new home.

Nearer the move date older children can help with packing non-fragile household items and making labels for the packing boxes. They could also draw a plan of the new house for the removals team marking each room to correspond with the labels.

On the day itself, ensure the children have plenty to keep them occupied arrange for a friend to take them to the park but don’t keep them away for too long – allow them to see what is going on then it will not be a shock when they see their old home empty of all their possessions. And remember children are very adaptable and will soon settle into their new home.




“Household removals require careful wrapping and packing to avoid damage to
furniture and effects, so many household policies do not cover goods in transit
unless they are being packed, carried and unpacked by a professional remover.”

Packing to move to your new home can be a large job, but one worth taking the time to do right. If you have collectibles, they may be worth a great deal of money overall. Even if they aren’t, they are likely to be something very dear to you. Packing these collectibles safely will help ensure they are going to be ready to unpack at your new destination without any type of damage to them.
