Moving House with Kids

Tips for Moving House with a Toddler

moving house with kids

Moving house can be stressful enough as it is, and with kids it can be even harder. Young children don’t always handle change well so you need to prepare carefully for the big move. They may be anxious about the process and be scared about moving to a new area. To make moving house with kids easier, take some time to prepare them with these easy tips.

Moving house with a toddler? Talk about your options with WridgWays now!

Before you move

Make sure you start talking about your new home early on. They may not understand the idea of a new house, but talking to them about it regularly will help them adjust. Use positive language whenever you discuss it so that they feel more comfortable with the process. You can tell them that they’ll have a brand new room to look forward to, or that there is a great playground right next door.

It is also a good idea to take your kids to the area to visit before you move in. Show them your new home, take them to the closest park, and give them a tour of their new school if you can. This will help them to feel more at home once they move in. The more comfortable your kids are, the easier the moving process will be.

During the move

Moving house with kids can be stressful, so you may want to organise a sitter on moving day. Moving homes can be messy, time-consuming, and difficult, and you don’t want your kids to get hurt. If you can arrange child care, or get family members to look after them, this will save you a lot of trouble. It will be much safer and less stressful if the kids are settled elsewhere.

Upon arrival at your new home, you may want to get the kids rooms set up first to help familiarise the setting. Leave some toys and blankets in an easily accessible place so you can make their rooms feel more homely. Its’ also a good idea to have a picnic on the day if your kids are with you so they don’t get hungry.

Need a helping hand? Our removalists have taken the hassle out of moving for more than a century! Contact your local branch today.

After the move

Once you’ve finished moving house with kids and are starting to get settled, allow some time for your children to adjust. You may need to be more patient with them at bedtime or even consider buying a house warming present. Make sure you set up play dates with their old friends too if you’re not far away. This will let them know that not everything has changed.

Try and set up the children’s rooms as similar as possible to your old home. You can also give them a used packing box or two to play with. Playing their favourite music can help them adjust too, as it may make them feel more at home in their new environment. Anything you can do to make them feel safe and comfortable will help them adjust much faster.

Getting a professional mover to help

Hiring professional removalists when moving house with kids will make your life much easier. It will save you a lot of stress and hassle on the day. They can pack and unpack for you, as well as move everything, so you can simply sit back and relax on the day. This means you won’t have to spend hours taping up packing boxes yourself.

You’ll also find that many professional movers offer other services to help you move. If you’re worried about your belongings being damaged you can take out moving insurance. There are also pet relocation and vehicle transportation options to make your move run much more efficiently. Find a removalist who can provide you with all these services, so you only have to go to one place.

WridgWays Handy Guide to Transit Times in Australia

Would you like to know how long your personal goods will be in transit for before they arrive at your new home? Wouldn’t it make life so much easier to plan ahead of time! Well lucky you can, with the help of WridgWays. It is important to note that time frames for household deliveries around Australia depend largely on where your goods are being moved from and to and how much you plan to take with you.

Once you have determinedLoading Cartons Container Shipping Removals Relocation what you’re taking, making the decision of whether to have the sole occupancy of a 20ft or 40ft container, or whether you would prefer to share a container with other peoples goods going to the same destination is so much easier! Both options have their advantages; sole occupancy containers are sent to your new destination straight away so you will have much a shorter transit time from uplift to delivery. Shared containers are great if you don’t require the full container and would like to save some money by combining with other peoples items headed for the same location. Sharing a container can have a longer transit time for this reason as the other consignments may not be ready to be sent on the same day.

Here’s Our Guide to Transit Times for Sole Occupancy Containers:

  • Transit times between Capital Cities and their surrounds, so for example Melbourne to Brisbane and Perth to Adelaide we advise generally allowing between 5 and 7 business days to receive your goods.
  • Household goods headed to regional areas such as Cairns, Alice Springs and Kalgoorlie we suggest allowing anywhere between 7 to 15 business days depending on the origin and delivery destinations.
