Furniture removals are always hard, and this can be exacerbated by kids. Not only is the move hard for you, but the change of scenery and the change in location, as well as the removals process itself can be a very confusing time. However, there are a number of hints and tricks which can make Tufnell Park furniture removals a great deal easier for both you and your kids. Follow these hints and tips and reduce the stress of moving day for all involved.
A classic feature of most home removals is a survival kit. A survival kit contains the essentials: food, drink, documents and keys. It makes sure that you have all of the vital tools ready and to hand while you are moving house. When moving home with kids, make sure that the survival kit caters for their needs as well as your own. Not only do they need the same essentials as you, but try to pack a few of their favourite toys and games (if they are younger) or a few electronic distractions with chargers (if they are a bit older). Furniture removals in Tufnell Park are hard enough, having their favourite possessions to hand rather than packed away can help to ease them through this difficult time.
A common parenting trick, one which was certainly employed by my parents, is to take a boring and mundane task, like furniture removals, and turn it into a game. Consider placing bubble wrapped items in a box like a puzzle game. The kid might well be happy to help and may even be better at it than you. Not all kids will fall for this however, and also be sure to take care not to let anything break. An overexcited child can be incredibly strong and might well be able to do damage even through your careful bubble wrapping.
Tufnell Park furniture removals can be a confusing and busy day. Even if you have taken care to organise carefully, the day itself can fly by and essential tasks can be forgotten. If there are children present, take the time to make sure that they are still fed and watered at the usual times. A hungry child can be a very distracting child. A full and well fed child can usually be quite sleepy and much less likely to cause a distraction on this busy day. While the kids will almost certainly be taken care of, taking the extra effort to make sure they are happy will go a long way to saving on the stress of the day.
One of the most worrying aspects of house removals for children is fear of the new area: if they are old enough to understand the principle, they may have worries over the new area and how they might fit in. To combat this, consider taking them to the new area in order to better acquaint them with their new home. When moving house to Tufnell Park, consider a day out in the district in order to show them around and get them excited about the move.
If none of the above seems to be working, or if you are certain beforehand that that the kids might see through your efforts, then consider letting the children have a day away from the hustle and bustle of the moving process. A day with their grandparents, with aunts and uncles or even with their friends will free you up to pack away all of the furniture and possessions and focus on moving house to Tufnell Park.
