How to Keep Your Children Safe While Moving in New York City

How to Keep Your Children Safe While Moving in New York City

Moving to New York City can be a difficult feat in itself, let alone moving with children. Depending on the age of your kids, moving can be hard for them to understand fully. It is vital that you communicate with them throughout the move in order to ensure their safety. Follow a set of plans created beforehand so while moving, you are not stressed about what your children are doing and if they are safe. Some things to consider include:

  • Discuss a set of rules
  • Make a list of activities for them
  • Keep them involved

Discuss a Set of Rules

Nobody likes stressing during a move and adding a kid to the mix can easily increase stress levels. To minimize fear and keep your children safe, set up a list of rules before the move and discuss it with them. These rules can include not playing around boxes, climbing on the moving truck, and being within a safe distance to hear directions when needed. When your children are aware of what you expect from them, they are more likely to follow. Be clear with them and express your concerns about their health and safety. Moving can be dangerous for children if they’re running around, so make sure to converse with them.

Make a List of Activities

A busy child is a happy one. Being bored during the moving process can lead to a rambunctious attitude and cranky tones. To prevent this, provide your child or prepare a list of fun activities to participate in while moving. This way, if you’re busy and can’t entertain them, they have something to do. Examples of activities could include coloring, playing with a doll or action figure, building blocks, or dress up. Keeping them occupied will keep them safe and away from danger.

Keep them Included

Including your children in the move may be the most vital aspect of keeping them safe. If they are always close and helping out with the move, they are always around you or an approved adult in case of an emergency. Safe ways to include them include letting them pack their toys in a box or help you pack anything light. Keeping them involved in the move will keep them close and safe.

Kids During the Move

Making sure your child is safe when you are moving is one of the most important parts of the move. You always want to keep your kids safe and healthy, so include them whenever possible and help them have fun! Your kids will love their new home.

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!
