How to make moving house easier and make an injury claim if you need to
Moving house isn’t easy for anyone, as it is both physically and financially very taxing. Not only this, but moving home can be emotional for many people, because you are leaving the place that you have called home for such a long time, to move into a place that you have no real connection with at the moment.
Moving home can be fairly traumatic for children, because in many cases they will never have known of another home, but it can be just as upsetting for you, as you leave the roots that you put down at your old home. Here are some tips for making moving home a little bit easier on yourself and the rest of your household.
- Wait for the right time for your children. If you have small children, try never to move to a completely different area in the middle of a school year or when they have just started school. It is incredibly upsetting for children to move schools at all, when they have all of their friends at their current school. Making them move in the middle of the year will be upsetting and distracting for them.
- Make sure that it is financially viable. Nothing could be worse than moving to a new house and then finding that you cannot afford to live there after you have paid for the move. Do all of your calculations twice if you need to, just be sure that the move is right for you financially as well as personally.
- Take it slowly. If you are able to, make sure that you are able to move into the new property a few days before you need to be out of the old one. This way you can move all of your belongings more slowly, and have the option to stay in the new house or the old one for a few days.
