Colorado Moving Tips for Families With Small Children

Moving to a new home can be tough, but the process can be even more difficult when you have small kids to look after. While it’s still important to work with experienced Colorado movers, keeping your kids safe throughout the move can be a challenge. Here are a few simple tips to help you manage the stress of the move without worrying about your kids and their safety.

Make Sure Your Kids Understand What’s Happening

The unknown can be especially confusing and challenging for young kids. While the thought of talking to them about the upcoming move may not be the most appealing thing in the world, it will help make the relocation process simpler. Before you start packing up their belongings, make sure they understand that they’ll be moving to a new house. If they have concerns, take the time to address them and explain why moving to a new home won’t be as difficult as they imagine. There’s the opportunity to make new friends, find new hangout spots, and experience new things—all of which can be exciting.

Help Them Pack a Must-Have Bag

When moving, it’s easy to fall into the trap of packing everything in the house. While this may seem useful on the surface, it can quickly lead to more stress. Instead of packing up all of your kids’ toys, ask them to pick out a few must-have items. If there’s a particular favorite that you know of, set it aside. If not, ask them to pick out a few of their favorite items to keep in their backpack during the move. This way, if they start to feel overwhelmed, they’ll have the items they deem most important within arm’s reach.

Book a Playdate on Moving Day

While getting your child settled into their new home is important, keeping them safe while the moving crew handles the packing and loading is far more beneficial. Rather than letting them watch the movers work, consider letting them spend the day with a friend or relative. This will help distract them from the process and keep them out of the way when the movers lift heavier items like furniture and large boxes. The less underfoot kids are, the safer they’ll be.

Get Them Involved

After the move, get your kids involved in the unpacking process. This will help them understand that the family only relocated and reassure many of their fears surrounding the relocation. Let them get settled into their own room and have them help unpack the family and living rooms. Once everything is unloaded, they’ll know precisely where to find it, making the new house feel like home more quickly.

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.
