MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As professional movers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we have made it simpler for people to move for all types of various reasons. At times, the reason is a happy one, and sometimes, it's due to a difficult circumstance like a divorce, death or break-up. We absolutely aren't here to judge, but rather to offer some tips we have gathered over the years of assisting individuals to move following a break-up.

Moving in with each other is a trial period; an assessment of if you and your partner can stand one another once you are in close proximity at all times. A number of couples pass with flying colors, and some... well, some don't. If you find yourself in this second grouping, and you must make sure that your old flame gets out and keeps out, then it's important that you make sure you do not skip a trick on the subject of the moving out process in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

If you want to be certain they can't pull the, "Well, I found myself in the neighborhood, and recollected I still had certain belongings to pick up," card, then you should adhere to these pointers.

Tip #1: Get Organized

If you reside with somebody, your things will probably combine. In spite of this, if you've broken up, it should be the perfect time to re-draw those lines to make it apparent whose belongings are whose. Therefore, go room by room, and set all your ex's things aside. This is probably going to be more complicated than it seems, both because of the memories attached to the items, and since you will end up constantly preparing a listing of things you now must replace. Nevertheless you need to do it quickly, and efficiently. Tear the band-aid off abruptly, and the agony will certainly fade away quicker.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

After you have all your ex's items in one place, do not simply place it in a closet, or leave it in a extra bedroom. You need it out of your place, so you're able to breathe for a bit and also distance yourself from the memories.

That does not mean chuck it out the window or dump it out on the curb (gratifying as that might be, contingent on your situation). Yet, find their things a place outside of your place. Keep it with one of your ex's friends or even take it to their mom's house. In case everything else fails, hire a professional mover in Tulsa and Oklahoma City and acquire a storage space. Give your ex the key to the storage locker to allow them to go get it when they are ready for it. But do not allow it to remain in your home; the last thing you need when trying to pick up and move forward is an elephant remaining in the room.

Tip #3: Get Them A Different Place to Live

One more thing your old flame might drag their feet on is searching for somewhere to move to, now that you've separated. And sure, locating a home isn't a cup of tea, especially when you're doing it alone. Which is why, even if you have loads of other stuff to carry out, you must help search for a spot for them to move.

If it means identifying a different apartment that's available and within their budget (on the other side of the city) or talking with your pals to see who could use another roommate, make sure you don't allow the grass grow under your ex's feet. You need them out the door along with their belongings, and if they've got somewhere to go, they cannot play the guilt trip that you'll be just throwing them out to the street.

Tip #4: You Should Never Backslide

Breaking up is difficult, there's really no two ways about that. But if you have to do something, it's important to take definite actions toward finalization daily. If you do not have the time, or the stamina, to pack up everything one day, then pack a single room per day or perhaps get in touch with a moving company in Tulsa and Oklahoma City to help you with the packing and moving. If you're unable to drive around the city looking into apartment prices, don't worry, you have the power of the smartphone and also the Internet. Write several emails or make a few calls.

The important thing is that you are advancing, rather than just keeping where you are... or worse still, expecting everything to just repair itself.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
