Transportation : REDUCE YOUR PRTD (Pre Relocation Trauma Disorder)
REDUCE YOUR PRTD
(Pre Relocation Trauma Disorder)
Plan Early – It’s going to take longer than you think to select a mover, decide what goes (or not) and how it all gets packed. Give yourself time to do this. Allow for the human tendency to avoid confronting the decisions in the “sorting out” process. Too often, this can result in “when in doubt, move it out” and makes for an unnecessarily expensive move.
Downsize Without Tears – Take a close look at all the stuff that is not used anymore and filling up your cupboards, garages and storage areas. Too often we accumulate stuff under a false monetary value and/or sentimental value. It helps to recognize our emotional bonds to ease the separation anxiety of letting go. Be ruthless and find them new owners.
Practical Moving Tips
Start Talking to Your Children Early About the Move (no matter what age they are). Moves to new locations can be traumatic for both young and older children. Preparing them in advance gives the child plenty of time to prepare for the move.
Don't Forget About Moving Yourself! Many hidden costs of a move often involve YOU! How are YOU getting to your new location? Where will you spend the night? What will you eat until your things arrive? If you plan this well, you'll save a lot of money.
