ORGANISING THE MOVE JAIPUR
A little bit about what happened to our growing family. We have lived in Melbourne all our life and my family is a large extended one. When my father passed away I asked my mother to come stay with us. It was good because we are a very close family and we have a large house. We have three girls and two boys and the home has always accommodated us, but recently it seemed there was a lot of bickering around bathrooms and usage of space in general. I guess the children were getting older and everyone it seemed wanted their privacy. With mum living with us, it was more pressure for both the children and her because of the generation gap, and of course I became piggy in the middle. I’m a very patient person but after a while it was beginning to disrupt all of our lives.
Families can have their ups and downs, and most of the time there are measures you can take sort things out. Sometimes the solutions we find, don’t always suit everyone involved, and that’s when it might be time for a radical change. We loved our home and for a long time it had served its purpose well, but we had outgrown it. So it was time to move to something more suited to our family and my husband started looking for a new place. After seeing many houses we finally found a house that was big enough for everyone. After quite a bit of planning it was decided we would move, and so it was done.
ORGANISING THE MOVE
When you have a young family the children all seem to get along for the most part anyway, and the adults pretty much have things under control. It’s great because even with a big family, usually your life can be manageable. Once the children start growing up, becoming teenagers and needing their privacy, so do the adults. In our case having my mother living with us, also meant her tolerating the children and being older she had less patience. All this is understandable and their requests were reasonable as it got to the point where nearly every day someone was complaining about one thing or the other. The boys wanted the family room to watch sports and have their friends over and the girls were constantly over using the bathroom. Then there was the issue of my mother, lovely as she is, she is older and no longer can handle a lot of noise around her. Teenagers can be loud and are full of energy and always on the go from one thing to another. Getting them to start packing their belongings was a chore in itself, but eventually they got into it and were looking forward to the move. I got all of them to pack their own stuff and get rid of what they didn’t need. There were many items that were still useful but they no longer needed and I made sure these went to Salvation Army.
I called a company I had heard about from a friend, she had used them in the past and highly recommended them. They were Quick Pick movers and they were so helpful from the start. Their service is exceptional for cheap movers Melbourne all around, and they handled our furniture in the best possible way. The move seemed effortless as they worked as a team and moved in and out of the house packing items and quickly moving them on to the truck. These Melbourne movers were on the ball and before we knew it, they had emptied the house and loaded everything onto the truck. It was such a relief the movers were friendly and really at our service, they knew their work and were professional and efficient. I think being a Melbourne removalist, meant being a great removalist Melbourne wide, and really, they were. They transported our furniture to the new house and unloaded everything, and went above and beyond to ensure we were totally happy with the end result. The new home had a granny flat at the back, this was great because it gave mum her privacy and independence. She was so happy because she felt free to live her life and also felt safe with us so close by. She could be with her family without feeling as if she was imposing, and the movers were kind enough to help put mums furniture in the flat. This was a great help to us because with a big family, moving can involve a lot of work, and with the help of the movers , shifting my mother’s furniture into the granny flat, helped relieve any extra stress.
