Moving can be a very stressful time especially if you are relocating for a new job. You have a new town, a new neighbourhood and a new house but what do you keep? You may be feeling more sentimental with some furniture or decorations. With others, you might be saying “just leave it all”. But right now you are probably on a tight timeline and need to get your moving plans in order. Remember these 3 tips when deciding what stays behind or what moves forward with you. 

  1. Identify The Value Of The Item 
For memories and money purposes, rate your items by how much they cost and how much they mean to you. You can quickly remove the items that mean little to you and do not cost very much and keep the items that mean the most to you. But for the tricky items that land somewhere in the middle, ask yourself some of these questions. 
How much do I use this? 
How much will this cost to ship to my new place? 
If I sold it how much could I get for it? 
Will this fit in with my new life? 
  1. Evaluate Your Move 
If you are moving locally you will probably decide to take most of your belongings with you, unless for size purposes you have to sell some things. If you are moving across the country or abroad, it is probably best to leave behind bigger items like tables, chairs and beds. The greater the distance the more it will cost you to move your belongings. Think rationally and practically before you decide what to take with you. 
  1. Set A Moving Budget 

Depending on the time of year you are making your relocation move, moving companies might be busy or priced higher than usual. Consider this and add it to your moving budget! Other things that will end up costing you more money on your move is long-distance travel, packing or disassembling, and higher risk items. 
The important thing to remember when you are moving to a new opportunity is that it is a new opportunity! Celebrate it and reflect on what you want to keep from your old life. It’s time to build the life you have always wanted. If you need help making the relocating move click here to see exactly how Knowledge Broker can help ease you into this transition.
