Talking About Moving Truck Rentals

Hello, my name is Benjamin. Welcome to my site about moving truck rentals. When I had to move across the country for school, I was tasked with taking the moving truck from my hometown to my new residence. The process was a nightmare initially, largely due to my inexperience and unsure expectations. I wish I would have researched the process more before starting out. I learned a lot on the trip though, and now I want to share it with you. This site will cover all you need to know about securing, using and returning a moving truck rental. Please come back soon.

Four Tips To Get Kids To Help With A Household Move

If your family is planning an upcoming move, it is well worth it to get everyone involved in the process. No matter how young your children are, they can help out with moving tasks along the way. Here are four ways you can get your kids onboard to help with an upcoming move.

1. Give Kids a Task Checklist

While you might know what moving entails, simply handing your kids boxes and telling them to get started on their rooms can leave kids confused and overwhelmed. Be sure to outline what is expected of them and give them lists of jobs that they can check off. Whether this is a simple as picking toys to donate or packing up shoes, make sure to spell out jobs for your kids that are manageable for them to tackle.

2. Don't Rush the Process

Kids might be a little slower at packing up, so be sure you give your family plenty of time for organizing and getting started on the initial packing process. There is moving prep that can be started weeks in advance, so don't wait until the last minute for everything. Rushing your kids at the last minute can stress them and make moving more overwhelming than it needs to be.

3. A Chance to Redecorate

One of the perks of moving is a chance to redecorate in the new home. If your kid's rooms are ready for a facelift or more age-appropriate furnishings, involve them and make this fun. Be sure to go shopping and get new decor set up in the new home together, with your child's input. This will ensure your kids have something to look forward to and won't be confused in leaving old furnishings and decor behind.

4. Offer a Housewarming Reward for Helping

A great way to reward the whole family for their hard work during a move is to think about a housewarming gift that everyone can enjoy. Whether this is a new TV, a ping pong table, or a pet, make sure this is something that represents a new start for your family in your new space.

Moving is stressful as it is, but if you have little ones that are a part of the process, it is important to try to incorporate them into plans and factor in their needs. Kids can get excited about moving and can be a big help as long as you approach this in the right way. Give your kids time, direction, and rewards to help make the moving process a success for the whole family.
