Also, take inventory of your belongings and make plenty of to-do lists so that when your possessions arrive at your new home you can take precise stock. The key to making any relocation efficient is discipline and organization.

While you’ll certainly have plenty of help from our military movers with the loading of boxes, you’ll also want to take a detailed inventory of your items. This will make the unpacking process go as smoothly as possible, allowing you and your family to settle into your new home with ease. With an inventory, you can also report any lost or damaged items.

Telling Your Children

A relocation every few years is a part of the military life, whether it’s in response to a new duty assignment or to accommodate family needs during your deployment. Most military kids will have an average of six to nine different homes before they reach the 12th grade. Moving can be an overwhelming experience, however, it is especially challenging for children. They face the difficulties of making new friends, switching schools, and adapting to their new environment.

It is vital to educate your children about the move as soon as possible. As a parent, you play an important role in helping them adjust well. For some, a move to a new place can be an exciting time, but for children it can bring a sense of uncertainty. In order to help your family make a positive transition together, it is always best to take an enthusiastic, organized, and reassuring approach. Explain to them that a relocation means they’ll have the chance to explore a new place, make new friends, and that the love and support from their family will never change.  There are also plenty of online resources and tools designed to help military children adapt to their new community.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!
