Moving House With Kids

If you’re reading this, then you or someone you know is probably in the process of moving with kids. And if that’s the case, then congratulations! You’ve just taken on one of the biggest challenges a family can face. 

But don’t worry, you’re not alone. At AB Castle, we are committed to all of our customers and we have put together this guide to help you have an easier move when moving with children, young or old they can both cause issues.

The stress of moving and how kids can help

The stress of moving house is often underestimated. For many people, it can be one of the most stressful experiences they go through in their lives.

There are many factors that contribute to this, from the upheaval of having to leave your home and everything you know behind, to the logistical challenges of packing and arranging transportation for all your belongings.

On top of all this, moving house with your children present can cause even more stress to this difficult task.

Moving with older kids is a bit more simple as they can help out in many ways. For example, they can help you carry boxes and heavy furniture into your new home.

We would always recommend you hire a removals company for extra help with the transportation of heavy things like beds and wardrobes etc.

How To Prepare Your House Removal

There are many ways in which you can prepare yourself for house removal. When planning to move with kids, it’s important to make sure everything is in order a bit before you start your move.

This means making sure you have all your utilities ready at the new house, updating your address with your bank and other important institutions, and arranging for childcare if necessary.

Arranging childcare for younger children is definitely your best bet when it comes to moving out. This is because they could get in the way or get injured around heavy machinery.

As well as this, you should make sure you book your removal company far in advance to ensure they are available on the right day. One way to find a removal company is to do a search. For example, you might search “Removals Doncaster“.

You can also arrange storage solutions with your company if you are going to need access to some extra space whilst moving.

What to do with your child's belongings during the move

If you have young children, you will need to make special arrangements for their belongings during the move. This is because they are not able to help out as much as older children, and maybe more prone to getting injured.

One option is to pack up their toys and clothes into boxes and take them with you to your new home. Make sure you label the things correctly so you can easily unpack all the items into the children’s rooms once you come to unpack at your new house.

Tips for keeping your child occupied during the move

Moving can be a really busy time. You will be busy packing and getting ready. Kids can help you with that. But they also need something to do to keep them from getting bored. Here are some ideas if you can’t find any childcare.


The moving process can be difficult for everyone involved, but with a bit of preparation and organization, it can be made much smoother. We hope our guide has given you some useful tips on how to make your move with kids as easy as possible. If you have any questions or need more advice, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
