Moving rental properties: Three tips for families with young kids

by Ralph Rodriquez

Moving house is never an easy task, but moving with young children can be a stressful, emotional upheaval for the whole family. If you're planning to move rental properties in the near future with your young kids, check out these three tips.

Prepare your kids slowly

Surprising your young children with a move may leave them feeling scared, insecure and uneasy, so give your kids plenty of time to adjust to the idea prior to move. This will allow your children to ask questions, ease their concerns, and get excited about the changes. To facilitate the transition, visit the new home or suburb to help your kids get familiar with their new surroundings. It helps to involve your kids in the packing process as much as possible. An easy way to do this is to give them a box each to fill with all of their favourite, special things. Pop their pyjamas, toothbrush, pillow, and anything else they'll need on the first night into the box, and make sure it's easy to access when you arrive at your new home.

Consider a family friendly removalist

Work with your removalist company to ensure that your home remains as normal as possible up until moving day, and the new home is set up quickly to minimise the adjustment process. Ensure that unpacking and setting up your children's rooms is the first priority, so that when they first enter your new rental property it is familiar and comfortable. Doing so provides them with the support they need during the period of transition.

Hire an end-of-lease cleaner

One of the best things you can do for you and your family when moving rental properties is to hire an end-of-lease cleaner. By outsourcing the cleaning duties, you will have more time and energy to focus on making the transition smooth for your young kids. You can use that time to simply relax with your children to ease the stress of moving. Your bond will be returned to you without hassle, as your rental will be clean to a professional standard. If your landlord does have any issues with the final clean, they can take umbrage with your builders handover cleaner service and leave you to move with peace of mind.

For a competitive quote for end-of-lease cleaning of your rental property, contact your local professional cleaning contractors. Be sure to ask them all of your questions before you hire them.


About Me

Cleaning Challenges and Solutions: A Cleaning Blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Andrew. At home, my wife does all the cooking, but cleaning is my job. I also own a small business. As a result, I'm charged with keeping things clean at both work and home. At work, I have a cleaning crew that comes in nightly, and I have specialists (carpet cleaners, window washers, etc) who come in as needed. At home, my kids do chores, and I handle most of the rest. I only outsource dry cleaning and a bit of seasonal deep cleaning. In this blog, I am going to write about keeping your home and office clean. I plan to include a range of tips, and I hope that they help you. Thank you for reading!
