Moving to a new neighborhood can be stressful, but there are tips that help to make the transition easier. We should know. Liberty Movers has completed thousands of long-distance relocations, and we’ve learned a few things along the way.

We know that the challenges associated with moving go beyond the need for professional packing services or storage solutions. You also need to think about what happens after the last box is set in place and it’s time to acclimate to your new surroundings.

Here are some tips to make the transition easier.

  • Plan Ahead: Research your new neighborhood ahead of the move to get an idea of the vibe and learn what you can about details like trash-day pickup, parking rules, and anything else that will be helpful in figuring out the things you’ll need to know day-to-day.
  • Make the First Move: Don’t wait to run into your neighbors while on a walk or for them to come knocking on your door. Make the first move by knocking on their door and introducing yourself. Even if you don’t end up becoming the best of friends, it’s good to know your neighbors and to start off on a friendly foot.
  • Get Involved: If your neighborhood has a civic league or other community group, stop by to see how you can get involved.
  • Use Social Media: Facebook, NextDoor, and other social media channels are excellent ways to learn about your neighborhood, share information, learn about issues or events, and stay in touch with your neighbors.
  • Visit Your Kid’s School Ahead of Time: If you think you’re nervous about a new neighborhood, imagine how your kids feel. Help to ease their anxiety by arranging to visit the school ahead of time and, if possible, meet their teachers and get to know where they’ll need to go on their first day.
