How to Move Out Your Ex Like A Pro

MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As professional movers in Tulsa, we've made it easier for people to move for all sorts of various reasons. Often, the reason is a happy one, and in some cases, it's due to a complicated situation like a divorce, death or break-up. We definitely aren't here to pass judgement, but instead to offer a few recommendations we've gathered through the years of helping people to move following a break-up.

Moving in with each other is a trial period; an assessment of whether you and your partner can tolerate one another after you're in close proximity all the time. Many couples pass with ease, and others... well, some don't. If you are in this second grouping, and you must ensure that your ex gets out and remains out, then it's necessary to make sure you don't miss a trick on the subject of the moving out process in Tulsa.

If you want to be sure they can't play the, "Well, I was in the neighborhood, and recalled I still had various belongings to grab," card, then you should follow these guidelines.

Tip #1: Get Organized

If you are living with another person, your belongings tends to mix. However, when you've split up, then it is the perfect time to re-draw those lines making it obvious whose things are whose. Therefore, move room by room, and set every one of your ex's things to the side. It is likely to be more difficult than it seems, both as a result of feelings linked to the items, and because you will end up continually preparing a listing of things you now must replace. Nevertheless you should do it swiftly, and efficiently. Tear the band-aid off all at once, and the hurt will certainly fade sooner.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

Once you have all your ex's things in one place, do not just stick it in a closet, or even let it stay in a extra room. You need it out of your home, so you're able to breathe for a bit and distance yourself from the memories.

chuck it out the window or toss it out on the curb (satisfying as that could be, depending on your circumstances). Yet, find their belongings a place other than your home. Put it with one of your ex's best friends or move it to their mom's house. In the event that everything else fails, hire a professional mover in Tulsa and obtain a storage space. Give your ex the key to the storage unit so they can go get it when they're ready for it. Try not to allow it to sit in your place; the last thing you want when trying to pick up and move on is an elephant sitting in the room.

Tip #3: Get Them A Different Place to Live

One more thing your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend could drag their feet on is selecting somewhere to live, now that you've split up. And without a doubt, locating a home is no cup of tea, particularly when you will be doing it on your own. And that's why, while you have loads of other stuff to complete, you need to help obtain a location for them to go.

Whether it means finding a different rental which is available and inside their budget range (on the opposite side of town) or chatting with your friends to find out who wants another roomie, be sure you don't let the grass grow under your ex's feet. You will want them on their way along with their things, and whenever they've got someplace to go, they can't pull the guilt trip that you're just kicking them out to the street.

Tip #4: Don't Backslide

Breaking up is tough, there's really no two ways about it. But when you must do something, it is important to take tangible steps on the way to finalization daily. If you do not possess the time, or the energy, to pack up everything one day, then pack just one area per day or perhaps contact a moving company in Tulsa to help with the packing and moving. If you're unable to drive all over the area checking on apartment prices, don't worry, you've got the miracle of the smartphone as well as the Internet. Send several email messages or even make a few phone calls.

The main thing is that you are continuing to move forward, and not simply keeping where you are... or worse still, hoping for everything to just fix 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.
