Combining Households in Long Beach, CA; Tips for Moving in Together & Combining Stuff

Here at Laprom Movers we help people move each and every day. There are many different reasons that people are moving. Some people are moving to a new house in the same city. Some people are moving to a brand new city. Some people are moving in together and merging households. You can find all sorts of tips on moving an entire household but merging households can be harder to find information on. Today Laprom Movers has some great tips for you on how to complete this process.

Moving in Together & Combining Stuff

The first thing you will want to do is make sure you both know what the expectations are. As you merge households it can bring up lots of different emotions that can be hard to deal with if you have not clearly defined expectations before you start. You will want to talk about what you have in mind for your home. Each of you will want to think about what possessions you cherish and want to bring with you into your new home. There are probably items that you do not care if you bring with you to your new home. The two of you will want to discuss what you are planning to bring into the home with you. Moving day is not the right time to have these conversations for the first time.

Combining Households with Too Much Stuff

You will also want to talk about what you are going to do with items that you both have in your home but that you do not need two of in your new home. Typically people will keep whatever item is in the best condition. As you discuss what to keep you will want to talk about furniture, appliances, kitchen supplies, and electronics. Deciding ahead of time what items of yours you will be taking with you will help as you begin packing for your move.

Decide How You Want to Furnish Your New House or Apartment

Before the big day you will want to make sure that you discuss the function for each room in your new home. Once you have decided how you want each room to feel you can discuss what furniture will go into each room. Then when we come to move you into your new home you will already know where each item of furniture goes.

Get Rid of Stuff Before Moving

Once you have a vision for your house you will want to start going through your house and getting rid of items that you do not need. If you have lived in your current home for a long time you may be surprised at how many things you have in your home that you do not use anymore. It is much easier to get rid of things before you move into your new home. As you go through your home you will need to decide if you are going to donate or sell the items that you do not want to keep anymore.
