Moving to a new city or state and traveling with children presents predictable challenges that are easy to plan for and unforeseen issues worth keeping an eye on.

It comes from managing time wisely and planning properly to avoid unnecessary headaches. Moving to one of the world’s most populous cities and traveling with children presents both predictable challenges that are easy to plan for, and unforeseen issues that are worth foreseeing. Don’t be surprised. There’s nothing a mover loves more than seeing happy kids waving from the curb after a successful move.

  1. Start planning early: Give yourself plenty of time to plan and prepare for the move. That would help to reduce stress and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
  2. Get the kids involved: Involve your children in the process by having them help with packing, sorting, and organizing their belongings.
  3. Make a list: Create an entire list of all the tasks that should be completed before, during, and after the move. This will help keep everyone on track and organized.
  4. Pack a “first night” bag: Pack a bag with essentials such as toiletries, pajamas, snacks, toys, books, etc., so that your children have everything they need for their first night in their new home.
  5. Label boxes: Label each box with its contents so that it’s much easier to unpack once you arrive at your new home.
  6. Take breaks: Moving can be exhausting for everyone involved so always take breaks throughout the day to rest and recharge.
  7. Have fun: Moving can be stressful but try to make it fun by playing games or listening to music while you work together as a family to get everything done.
  8. Visit the new neighborhood: Take some time before the move to explore your new neighborhood with your children so they can become familiar with it before moving day arrives.
  9. Set up a routine: Establishing a routine as soon as possible after moving will help your children adjust more quickly and easily to their new environment and surroundings
  10. Create a special space for them: Help your children feel at home in their new environment by setting up a special space just for them where they can relax and feel comfortable
  11. Stay positive: Try to stay positive throughout the entire process – this will help keep everyone’s spirits high during what can be an overwhelming experience
  12. Keep communication open: Talk openly with your children about any concerns or worries they may have about moving – that would allow them to feel much more secure in their new home
  13. Celebrate!: Once you’ve settled into your new home, celebrate with a special dinner or activity – this will help create positive memories of the move for everyone involved!
  14. Stay connected: Make sure to stay in touch with family and friends from your old home – this will help your children feel connected to their old life and make the transition easier
  15. Give yourself time: Moving can be a stressful experience so make sure to give yourself time to adjust and settle into your new home.Always keep in mind that professional local and long-distance movers from LA Moving Star make your children super comfortable and stress-free during the entire move too.

HOLY MOLY! Where do I even begin. First of all, in the last 6 years, I've moved probably 3-4 times. I've hired through task rabbit, asked for recs through friends, and have even hired those amazing parking lot patrons you see at every Home Depot. Long story short, it's always been a nightmare. Half of my things end up broken, my walls get scuffed, I end up needing to help lift things and spend hours afterwards cleaning up what the movers messed up. When planning my current move, I knew I had some really tricky pieces that were going to be an absolute beast to move to my new condo. I decided to dish out a couple extra bucks and work with an actual moving company this time after my best friend Lauren raved about LA Moving Star for months.When I tell you I'm astonished. First of all, the price was very reasonable and the movers that showed up were actual professionals. I would call them moving artists to say the least. They strategically have so many tricks up their sleeves in getting massive items through very cramped and small spaces. Everything was wrapped beautifully and not a single thing was damaged. Not only that but they were SO efficient. They were hustling, moving fast, and getting it all done in a timely manner. Usually when companies charge by the hour, I tend to notice workers taking their sweet time in certain areas... But this company values integrity and you can tell. They actually care about their customers and it's SO apparent. My specific movers were Alex, Max, and Serg and the 3 boys were spectacular. This move was definitely not an easy one and they even had to completely disassemble and rebuild my three massive closet pieces by hand.I cannot reccomend this company enough and will be reffering everybody I know to use them. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Two great workers helped with moving my entire apartment. It was a big move with a fridge, desk, tv and bed. Fast, friendly, and would absolutely hire again. They handled the move up a flight of stairs as well
