Yes, toddlers are difficult and, if you didn’t already know, they make moving home an even more difficult task than it already is when they’re involved in the move, too. But, there are ways to make moving home with a toddler a bit easier, to see just how make sure to read on.
Don’t fill your current house with boxes full of your belongings too early
In order to move home and take everything you hold dear with you, you need to pack your worldly belongings up. This means packing things away into boxes (preferably labeled boxes) so that, come moving day, everything will be packed away properly and safely and ready to make the journey to the new house. Now, ideally, this packing process would start as early as possible (when a moving date is confirmed, preferably) in order to ensure that enough time is given to the task of ensuring nothing is overlooked. But, when you have a toddler running around the house, packing too early is a big no-no. It’s a no-no because your toddler may hurt themselves as they, quite naturally, climb through your boxes. It’s a no-no because your toddler may, again quite naturally, take things out of your packed up belongings and then proceed to either lose or hide them.
Basically, don’t pack up too early!
Hire professional movers to help you on moving day
When it comes to moving day, it’s going to be all hands on deck because you are going to need a lot of support. Specifically, you are going to need the support of professional movers, because you are not going to be able to move all of your things to your new home with a toddler in tow.
What you need to do is get a professional moving company, such as Bekins Moving Solutions to do the heavy moving of all of your things in the specially equipped van. And, what you should do is take your little toddler with you in your car. You should do so because evening the load in this manner and giving everybody involved a job they can will make it go smoothly, and you won't upset your toddler if you take them in the comfortable surroundings of your own car. And, in regards to the latter, a screaming toddler is not what you need on moving day!
