    Always pack your child’s room for a move last. Why? Well, firstly, this way your children are going to have their rooms intact for as long as possible. Secondly, packing their room last will minimize moving stress, given the fact that kids, like all people, are creatures of habit.

    However, once the last thing on your packing checklist is to pack your kid’s room you better be prepared. Everybody knows that packing your loved ones’ room is simple. However, it can also be equally as hard if you don’t know what you are doing.

    Making your kids contribute to the moving process will make the moving process that much easier on them!

    That’s why today, we here at Big Man’s Moving Company Florida, are going to share with you a few tips that will, hopefully, help you on your journey of packing your kids’ room like a pro! So, let’s get started.

    1. Explain the concept of moving to your kids

    Before you hire packing services Clearwater FL we urge you to explain to your children the “how what, and why” of moving. This is extremely important. You want your loved little one to understand exactly what’s happening. If you don’t try and be reasonable with your kids, don’t expect them to be understanding. Consequently, your actions will, at the very best, make your kids anxious, or at the worst – scare them. That’s where your role as a parent comes into play. It is your job to make sure your kid understands exactly what and why you are relocating. And while the move is still going to be rough for your kid, talking with them about it is going to make the whole relocation process that much easier.

    On top of all that, it’s also quite important to make them feel like they are contributing to the relocation. And what better way to do that then to ask your kids with help in decluttering and packing their room?

    2. Pack your child’s room for a move

    Before you start packing your kid’s room it’s important to declutter. Firstly, this way, you will have fewer things to pack. Secondly, the cost of the move will be cheaper. So, grab your kids and go through each toy and ask them whether or not they will play with them. Depending on their response you are either going to put the toys into:

    • Throw away pile. If they say they won’t play with it anymore.
    • Keep pile. If they say it’s their favorite toy, or if they want to play with it.
    • Store pile. If they are indifferent about the toy. If you don’t have a place where to store the toys, make sure to prepare the toys for storage, and ask around for some quality storage solutions.

    Why Choose Us?

    Big Man’s Moving was a great choice for our recent long distance move! They cared so much about making sure that we were comfortable with the entire process. While I never met Josh, he definitely strives to “do things the right way”. James drove our stuff across the country and we never worried about it once. He was super professional, called us to give updates on his location and brought a good sense of humor to the loading/unloading process. I wish Big Man’s Moving would move to our new city, just in case we ever need them again!
