Moving is a very hard task. For everyone. It’s a challenging experience that stretches out from the first day you decide that you are going to move. And it lingers far after you have relocated, in the form of yearning for your old home and relationships. However, for those who plan on moving with a disability, the words “challenging experience” definitely take on a new meaning.

However, that doesn’t mean that moving with disabilities is impossible. Quite on the contrary, it just takes a little bit of know-how. And that’s exactly why we have written this article. To provide you with the techniques, the methods, the knowledge, that will help anyone that plans on moving with a disability a breeze.

Moving with a disability

There are plenty of guides out there on moving. From the basic articles that teach you how to declutter and pack items to more sophisticated ones such as how to read a moving contract. These are all important topics that include important recommendations that should be adhered to. However, when moving with disabilities there are a couple of other suggestions that you should adhere to. Not only for safety issues but also to get the biggest bang for your buck out of the moving experience.

Take special care when hunting for a new home.

Make sure you check whether your new home is disability accessible. For example, if you decide to move to Florida before you hire movers Brandon FL , make sure to discuss your needs with the landlord. If you are renting make sure you request some common sense alterations to the apartment that will fit your disabilities. Things like installing a ramp, for example, can be mighty helpful in getting around your flat. It is your legal right you should definitely use it.

Expenses add up, especially if you have to pay for packing help, so don’t be shy to ask for financial aid!
  • financial aid: Some agencies offer grants which are aimed at helping you refit your home with all the help you might need. Thankfully, in today’s day and age finding such non-profit organizations is only a web search away. For example, the ACL offers such grants. These people have made it their mission to help people with disabilities live a more comfortable life, so make sure you make use of it!

Hiring professional movers


However, at the end of the day, after everything is set and done, the best way to move with a disability is to ask for help. Hiring long distance movers Florida can be of tremendous help. You see, these are people who have dedicated their lives to helping people just like you, have a more healthy moving experience. By helping you pack and unpack your belongings and transporting them.
