Tips for a Long Distance Family Move

Moving everything you own is one thing; moving everything you own and keeping a few kids in line is another thing entirely! Here are a few tips to help make your family move just a little bit smoother, safer, and less stressful.

Making a Game Plan

The worst thing you can do is let a long-distance move sneak up on you. It can be challenging to find time for making (and sticking to) a game plan, but the truth is that a little early preparation can make the difference between order and chaos on moving day.

Grab a pen, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to plan out your family move with these simple suggestions!

#1: Get expert help.

The first thing you want to do is hire a Boise moving company to help you handle the actual job of moving. Having experts on hand means that you’re free to focus on getting yourself and your family from Point A to Point B–and if you do this first, then you won’t have to worry about bubble-wrap and cardboard boxes as you make the rest of your game plan.

#2: Create a calendar.

Calendars are a great way to keep yourself and your family on the same page. Make sure to take note of the most important dates, tasks, and deadlines, so nothing sneaks up on you. The kids will appreciate knowing what to expect–and so will you!

#3: Get the kiddos involved.

Kids can’t make a lot of decisions during the moving process, which can lead to stress and frustration. Try getting them involved with simple tasks like choosing bedrooms in the new house, finding new go-to restaurants in the new neighborhood, and packing up their essentials for the first few nights (like combs, toothbrushes, and favorite toys).
