Top Tips for Moving After a Divorce

Moving After DivorceIt’s an unfortunate fact of life that, from time to time, couples split up. When it comes to separation, many automatically think of any kids, pets, or belongings that the couple have shared in the past and who gets what. However, what is often not considered is the difficulty of moving after a divorce. At Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage, we’ve put together some helpful tips on moving home after a divorce.

Moving Can Be a Long Process

It’s important that you and your ex-partner understand that moving can take longer than anticipated. This is why organization is vital – especially if you want the move conducted as quickly as possible.

Agree with your ex in advance about what happens to any items neither of you want. This will save a lot of hassle in the long run. It may be difficult, but negotiating is the responsible thing to do, and it will make the process easier and quicker.

Organize in Advance

You should be fully prepared for the move. A moving company should have been organized well in advance, and you should have agreed on costs and details of the day. If your ex-partner is using a different company, that’s okay. You should be looking out for yourself at this point.

Be Prepared for Emotions

Be prepared that you may be emotional on the last day you leave the house where you and your ex-partner lived. You need to remember that you don’t need to do this alone, so enlisting the help of friends or family may help in this difficult time. However, on the same hand, try to not let your emotions get the better of you – you don’t want to make a scene on the day of your move.
