What You Should Ask Your Partner Before Moving

Moving in with your significant other is an important step in the relationship. However, if you’ve been on your own for several years, transitioning into a shared home with anyone can be a real challenge. Before you contact a Denver moving company to help you pack up your belongings, you’ll need to make sure it’s the right decision for both of you. Here are a few of the most important questions to ask you’re significant other before taking the leap and moving in together.

Why are you moving in together?

For most couples, the answer is simple: to be closer and spend more time together. However, others use the opportunity for other reasons. Some may see it to reduce rent costs, while others may only want additional help around the house. Before you leap, make sure you’re both on the same page. If your reasons for moving in together are not the same, take a look at why. If you’re okay with the difference, the situation will likely be fine. But if you’re at odds with your significant other’s reasons, it may be best to hold off.

Do your schedules line up?

Night owls and morning people can live together in harmony, but the transition might be a bit more abrupt for some couples. Have an honest conversation about your preferred schedule, and make sure you’re both prepared to deal with any differences. For example, if you wake up early in the morning and get ready for loud music, your night-owl partner needs to be aware of your habits.

How will your bills be paid?

When you’re living on your own, all bills and living expenses are your responsibility. However, if you move in with your significant other, those expenses easily become intertwined. Rather than waiting until the first round of bills makes it to your home, discuss how the bills will be paid. Will, you split the cost evenly, or have you cover one utility while your partner covers another? Before you commit to sharing a home, make sure you know who is responsible for paying each expense and how you plan on keeping things even.

Who is responsible for which chores?

Though no one likes doing the dishes or keeping up with the housework, it’s still an important part of maintaining your home. Before you agree to move in, make sure you understand how chores will be divvied up. If you hate doing laundry and your partner loathes doing dishes, compromise and take on the more appealing chores to each of you. Never assume that your partner will take care of a task simply because you don’t like doing it. It would help if you communicated your preferences and your concerns so the two of you can reach an agreement.

If you and your significant other are in agreement and ready to move forward with your relationship, moving in together is the next logical option. Rather than handling the move yourself, let an experienced moving company handle the packing, loading, and delivery for you. At Eden’s Moving Services, we’ll treat your belongings as if they were our own. Contact Eden’s Moving Company today for a free estimate.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
