If You Have Children here Are Some Things To Consider That Will Keep Them Safe On Your Moving Day!
Alliance Moving and Storage believes It is best to have your children stay with a grandparent, family member or trusted good friend on the actual day if someone is local. This will keep them safe and happily engaged.
If this is not possible, hire a sitter to spend the day with you, looking after their safety and tending to their needs. Prepare ahead of time ample food and drink. The food should be as non-perishable as possible and easy to eat. Include in your ice chest some of your children’s favorite foods and treats to keep them positive.
Prepare ahead of time toys, games and books to keep your children entertained during the long moving process. Your children are going to want to take a nap or relax during the process. It’s a good idea to leave a blanket, pillow, or other comfort items (perhaps their favorite stuffed animals) that they have access to during the day.
It is important to have with you a box of items that you might need in a hurry. Please make sure that this box remains in a safe area during the move (the bathtub is a great place to keep important items that stay with you and don’t go on the moving truck). These items should include medicine, Band-Aids, your children’s favorite books, toiletries, and other personal items.
Given that the front door of your old and new homes will be open during the move, make certain that your children are kept safe and remain inside the home.
Children will often want to play with the moving dollies and cartons that are in the home during the move. Moving boxes can be a great source of fun for children, but they can be hazardous with little children if your little ones gets inside and attempts to speed race on a dolly can also prove treacherous. Be sure to monitor your children’s usage of moving equipment during a move.
