Moving House or Staying Put?

By | September 8, 2009

It’s been a while since we moved house, almost ten years in fact. But my mother just moved house from the Highlands back to Edinburgh. Why? Well, I’m not too sure, but she seems happy to move like that every few years. Given her advancing years, her copious amounts of possessions, and my non-proximity, I am wondering how she dealt with the packing.

It seems that her long distance movers must have helped with the packing as well as the moving. So how do you choose a good firm to do the packing? With a typical company, you are trying to find one that has been in business for a while, has clean trucks and a reliable reputation. Looking for a company that also provides additional services such as packing, insurance, storage, and so on would also be an indicator that they are serious about their business.

Our possessions have grown enormously since we moved in, and the thought of moving house is just traumatic right now because of the work involved. But if our noisy neighbors don’t stop, we may just get too tired of their behavior. But the other factor that is interesting is that people who move house often do get restless.
