Greater Vancouver Moving Tips: First Day in the New Home

Life Changes When We Move

Moving usually is a big step for most of us. It is a change in the environment around us and often a big step in our lives.

First Days in Your New Home - BC Movers

Since the day we decided that we are moving to or from Greater Vancouver, BC or anywhere else in Canada, until the last box is unloaded in our new house, the thought about moving process never leaves us.

There are many aspects involved in the moving process and many of us do not even realize that until the day of the move. A move takes up time and money, along with worries about the relocation process and about the new place. You have to find a reliable Greater Vancouver moving company and to a free moving quote, and set up the desired dates for moving.

The Day after the Move

After all the effort the move took and all the money spent, the day after the move may seem like a breeze. Yes, but not quite. In most cases, at delivery day you will not be able to unpack much because you will be quite overwhelmed and tired, especially if it is after a long distance move.

Thus, the day after the move will be specifically dedicated to unpacking and rearranging all of your belongings. Many times though some of us will need to get away of all those boxes and plastic wrapping. So, it is a good idea when you wake up in the morning to have a cup of coffee and take a walk in your new neighborhood. Walk your dog, talk to some locals about what is around and places to check out.

Also, if you have kids take them to the city park and let them play. You can as well choose to run some of your first errands or just go find out where is the closest bank, post office, grocery store and pharmacy. Do not just Google those – get familiar with your new area of residence by walking the streets.

Another thing you should do is seeing your moving checklist (if you have one). If you moved to another province in Canada, you should change your ID within your current province and update your driver’s license. You should switch banks if your old bank is not present in your new state.

Overwhelmed or Overexcited After the Move

You can choose whether to be one or the other. After a moving to a new place either state could be quite unsettling.

There are some strategies to prevent these states and as mentioned above, you should start by getting away from chaos at your new home after the move. Our brain is used to order and habitual actions, thus when we move we disturb all that order and we can easily feel overwhelmed. Therefore, to keep your sanity and save some neurons, you should try to maintain your schedule as much as possible no matter how excited you are.

The day after the move is when we realize that we have to change even more than we thought, so being able to stay calm and organized is necessary. Think about how all the hard work is done and now it’s finally a relief day.
