How to Move Out Your Ex Like A Pro

MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Being professional movers in Colorado Springs, we've made it simpler for people to move for all sorts of different reasons. Often, the reason is a happy one, and in some cases, it's because of a challenging situation such as a divorce, death or break-up. We definitely are not here to judge, but instead to supply a few recommendations that we have collected over the years of helping people to move following a break-up.

Moving in with each other is a trial period; an experiment of whether you and your partner can stand one another once you're in close proximity at all times. A number of couples pass with ease, but some... well, some won't. If you are in the second category, and you must make sure that your old flame gets out and stays out, then it is important that you make sure you don't skip a trick with regards to the moving out process in Colorado Springs.

In order to make sure they are unable to play the, "Well, I'm in the area, and recollected I still had certain things to grab," card, then you should follow these tips.

Tip #1: Get Organized

If you live with another person, your stuff will usually combine. In spite of this, when you've broken up, then it is time to re-draw those lines so it will be obvious whose items are whose. So, proceed room by room, and set all of your ex's belongings to the side. This is likely to be more difficult than it seems, both as a result of feelings connected to the stuff, and because you will end up constantly building a list of items you now must replace. However you need to do it quickly, and efficiently. Rip the band-aid off abruptly, and the agony will diminish faster.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

Once you have all of your ex's things in one location, you should not merely stick it in a closet, or leave it in a spare room. You need it away from your place, to help you to breathe for a bit and distance yourself from the memories.

pitch it out the window or toss it on the curb (fulfilling as that might be, contingent on your situation). However, find their belongings a place beyond your place. Put it with one of your ex's pals or perhaps take it to their mom's place. If everything else fails, hire a professional mover in Colorado Springs and acquire a storage unit. Give your ex the key to the storage locker so they can go get it when they're ready for it. But don't allow it to stay in your home; the last thing you want when attempting to pick up and move on is an elephant sitting in the corner.

Tip #3: Get Them A Different Place to Live

One more thing your old flame could drag their feet on is searching for a place to move to, now that you've separated. And sure, locating a house is no picnic, specially when you're doing it on your own. Which is why, while you have a great deal of other stuff to do, you should help locate a spot for them to go.

Whether it means finding a different apartment that is open and in their budget range (on the other side of the town) or speaking with your acquaintances to determine who wants an additional roommate, make sure you don't allow the grass grow underneath your ex's feet. You want them on their way along with their things, and when they have a place to live, they will not play the guilt trip that you are just kicking them out onto the street.

Tip #4: Do Not Backslide

Splitting up is hard, there is no two ways about that. However when you must do something, it's important to take definite actions on the way to completion every single day. If you don't have enough time, or the vigour, to pack up everything in one day, then pack just one room per day or get in touch with a moving company in Colorado Springs that will help with the packing and moving. If you're unable to drive all around town looking into apartment costs, don't fret, there is the miracle of the smartphone and the Internet. Write a few emails or perhaps make a few phone calls.

The main element is that you are continuing to move forward, rather than just keeping where you are... or even worse, hoping for everything to just fix itself.
