If you and your significant other are breaking up, this can be a hard time in your life. If you are moving out of a shared home, this can add another layer of stress to an already emotional time. Here are four tips to help with moving out (and on) after a breakup.
1. Don't Delay Your Move
If your relationship is over, there is no reason you should stay living with your ex. This isn't the time to stay just for the sake of convenience because staying will only make the healing process harder. Leave your larger items until you can coordinate movers to help with this. Find a friend or rent a month-to-month place until you are more situated and can make a more permanent move.
2. Don't Make Big Decisions Right Away
Just because you're moving out of your ex's home doesn't mean it's time to do something drastic like move cross-country and start out in an entirely new city. Stay nearby and don't make any huge changes in your life until you can emotionally recover. You might find that staying in town isn't as hard as you thought, once you have a little time to get over your ex and gain some independence.
3. Schedule Movers When Your Ex is Out of the House
Contact a company like Able Moving & Storage Inc to help you move your things out of the old place and into the new one. When it comes to your actual move day, it is best to try to pack and schedule movers when your ex isn't home, especially if you are the one who wanted to leave. If you are worried that your ex might show up or cause a scene, enlist a trusted friend or family member that can direct movers on the moving out process. You can be on the other end when movers arrive with your things.
4. Reclaim Your Space
Once you find the perfect place for starting over, relish in the fact that you can make this all yours. Once you have movers bring in your items from your old home, you might find that you are missing key pieces to make your house a home. Splurge where you can if it makes you happy and rediscover your own independent style.
Moving can be a stressful time. If you are working through a breakup at the same time, this can make moving more emotional than a traditional move. The good thing is you don't need to go through this alone. Make sure to rely on friends and family to help you get over your ex, and have movers help with the more practical aspects of a move.Share

After my company merged with another business in another country, I realized they might be asking some of us to relocate to a new area. I was nervous about the idea, but I realized that if I wanted to keep moving up, it might be necessary to move. I decided to volunteer, and my bosses really appreciated my willingness to work with their changing business model. However, I realized that moving might be expensive, so I spent a little time estimating my moving costs before I negotiated my relocation package. This blog is all about figuring out your moving expenses so that you don't get stuck with a steep bill.
