Are you planning to move soon? If so, I bet you are getting so excited, but if you have kids, you might be getting nervous. What are you supposed to do with them while you pack? How will they take the move (especially if it is to a new town), and how can you make it as stress-free as possible? Don’t worry – I am here to answer your questions! Here are a few ways to make your move with kids easier:
Hire Atlanta Peach Movers
You might want to try and be brave by doing everything on your own, but save yourself the trouble and just hire a moving company such as Atlanta Peach Movers. They are Atlanta Georgia’s full-service moving company with over 30 years of proven experience in the area. Using their fleet of 38 vehicles, they are able to move you locally, regionally, nationally, or even internationally. They provide many different services such as a white-glove treatment and even offer packing services, as well, which might be a great perk to add on with kids. They say, “Our commitment to customer service means you call the shots—we’ll do as little or as much of the packing as you need us to. If you want us to handle the entire process, we’ll bring the packing supplies, pack your things securely, then unpack them and remove the boxes and used packing materials from your new place. The members of our packing team are hand-picked and trained to the most stringent standards, and all the items we pack for you are fully insured against damage.
If you prefer to do the packing yourself, we can provide all the supplies—boxes, tape, packing peanuts, etc.—and leave you to it. Just be advised that while we always handle your belongings with the greatest of care (including the boxes), the items inside self-packed boxes are not covered by our movers insurance.”
Atlanta Peach Movers is different compared to your average moving team. Their goal is to provide you with a peaceful and stress-free move accompanied with excellent customer service. All of their staff members are employees – not freelancers, unlike some moving companies. This is important because their employees are not only drug tested, but also trained in their state of the art training program called Peach University. This training program teaches them the best practices on how to pack and move valuables, and more. If hiring a professional moving company sounds like it will relieve a lot of stress for you, give Atlanta Peach Movers a call so that you can get a free estimate!
Get Your Kids To Help – With Incentives
Moving is a daunting task, and you will need all the help you can get. Having your kids help out by doing smaller tasks can be very useful to you, and can also help them feel as if they are involved in the process rather than just being subjected to it. For younger kids, have them do tasks like hand you items as you pack a box. For older kids, have them help to pack their rooms or even help you carry things out to the moving truck. Allow your kids to unpack their own rooms if they would like to. You will be grateful for the extra set(s) of hands!
Hire a Babysitter
While getting your kids to help with the moving process can be fun for the whole family, there are some times when it would be more efficient to have someone else watch the kids. Particularly with younger children, it can be difficult to accomplish all that you need to get done before, during, and after moving while also making sure those crazy kiddos stay alive while they run around like wild turkeys. Have your kids help where they can, to allow them to feel that they are part of the process and decision-making, but also don’t feel bad if you need some kid-free time to get the heavy duty work out of the way.
Explore Your New Town
Moving can be hard on kids, particularly if you are moving to a new town or area. To ease the burden of being in a new place on both you and your kids, take a family outing to explore everything new and exciting, and begin creating good and fun memories. Sometimes kids need to know that their life will still be as great in the new home as it was in the old home to feel better about moving. Exploring your town with your family will make the transition to a new home smoother and filled with positive memories rather than negative ones.
