When a Family Outgrows Your Home

Families can have their ups and downs, and most of the time there are measures you can take sort things out. Sometimes the solutions we find, don’t always suit everyone involved, and that’s when it might be time for a radical change. We loved our home and for a long time it had served its purpose well, but we had outgrown it. So it was time to move to something more suited to our family and I started looking for a new place. After seeing many houses we finally found a house that was big enough for everyone. After quite a bit of planning it was decided we would move, and so it was done.

ORGANISING THE MOVE

When you have a young family the children all seem to get along for the most part anyway, and the adults pretty much have things under control. It’s great because even with a big family, usually your life can be manageable. Once the children start growing up, becoming teenagers and needing their privacy, so do the adults. In our case having my mother living with us, also meant her tolerating the children and being older she had less patience. All this is understandable and their requests were reasonable as it got to the point where nearly every day someone was complaining about one thing or the other. The boys wanted the family room to watch sports and have their friends over and the girls were constantly over using the bathroom. Then there was the issue of my mother, lovely as she is, she is older and no longer can handle a lot of noise around her. Teenagers can be loud and are full of energy and always on the go from one thing to another. Getting them to start packing their belongings was a chore in itself, but eventually they got into it and were looking forward to the move. I got all of them to pack their own stuff and get rid of what they didn’t need. There were many items that were still useful but they no longer needed and I made sure these went to Salvation Army.

I called a company I had heard about from a friend, she had used them in the past and highly recommended them. They were Quick Pick movers and they were so helpful from the start. Their service is exceptional for cheap movers Melbourne all around, and they handled our furniture in the best possible way. The move seemed effortless as they worked as a team and moved in and out of the house packing items and quickly moving them on to the truck. These Melbourne movers were on the ball and before we knew it, they had emptied the house and loaded everything onto the truck. It was such a relief the movers were friendly and really at our service, they knew their work and were professional and efficient. I think being a Melbourne removalist, meant being a great removalist Melbourne wide, and really, they were. They transported our furniture to the new house and unloaded everything, and went above and beyond to ensure we were totally happy with the end result. The new home had a granny flat at the back, this was great because it gave mum her privacy and independence. She was so happy because she felt free to live her life and also felt safe with us so close by. She could be with her family without feeling as if she was imposing, and the movers were kind enough to help put mums furniture in the flat. This was a great help to us because with a big family, moving can involve a lot of work, and with the help of the movers, shifting my mother’s furniture into the granny flat, helped relieve any extra stress.

Finally getting into our new home and setting up all our furniture and putting all our belongings away, we were able to relax and begin to enjoy our new home. The children had more than enough space and there were no more arguments over the bathroom. They were more calm and were laughing and joking around with each other. It was great my family was back and we were all comfortable.

Kostas Theodoropoulos - About Author:
My name is Kostas and I remember when I first moved out of home, it was a huge step and I remember at the time thinking, it was the most exciting day of my life. I was so happy my friends were there helping me and my family were trying to give me all sorts of advice. It was a really busy day and everyone was doing something. I wanted to take as much as I could with me, but I also knew I was moving in with two other people and there was only so much space. When the furniture movers were loading everything on to the truck I felt a bit nervous about the change ahead. As I left the house I felt a little sad, but when I arrived at the new place there was so much to do, I didn’t have a chance to think of anything. By the end of the day I was exhausted and just wanted to sit back with my friends. We opened a nice wine, made a beautiful fruit and cheese platter, and just sat back and admired our new home.
