Moving with kids on board? Check out the best tips from Brisbane Pre Packers & Removals

At Brisbane Pre Packers & Removals, we know how difficult it can be to relocate when you have a family and the children are at home. Whilst we all love our children, packing and moving when they are underfoot can add another layer of complexity to an already stressful situation.

This is why you need a plan of action that will make the day go smoothly and keep your children from being underfoot all day and possibly being injured. Brisbane removalists are professionals, but having young children racing around when they are lifting and carrying heavy loads can create an unsafe situation for everyone involved.

Preparing your children for the move

At the same time that you book the furniture movers in Brisbane, and if your children are old enough to understand that you are relocating, it helps to explain your reasons for the move and to familiarise them with their new home.

Brisbane Pre Packers & Removals have been around for a long time and we have seen how many parents help their children to cope with moving to a new home. For example, we know that showing them your new home and visiting parks and playgrounds in the area, helps children to actually look forward to the move, rather than stressing out about leaving their friends.

On the day of your move

With young children, it’s best to ask a friend or relative to give you a hand, either looking after your children while you supervise the move or taking them away for a few hours. This gives you an opportunity to focus on the move, ensuring that the Brisbane removalists have everything in hand, rather than spending your time worrying about the children.

If you don’t have anyone to help care for your children on moving day, then depending on their ages, you can give them a few jobs to do or occupy them with a few of their favourite toys. Furniture movers in Brisbane are well versed at moving families with children, so once everything is packed away in boxes, it won’t take long for your belongings to be loaded and you can be on your way!
