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 assisted 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 like a divorce, death or break-up. We definitely are not here to judge, but rather to supply some pointers that we have collected over the years of assisting people to move following a break-up.

Moving in with each other is a trial period; an experiment of whether you and your significant other can stand one another when you're in close proximity on daily basis. Some couples pass with ease, and 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 be sure you don't miss a trick with regards to the moving out process in Colorado Springs.

In order to ensure they are unable to play the, "Well, I was in the area, and recollected I still had certain things to grab," card, then you should follow these pointers.

Tip #1: Get Organized

If you live with another person, your stuff will usually combine. In spite of this, when you've split up, then it's time to re-draw those lines so it will be clear whose items are whose. So, proceed room by room, and put all of your ex's things to the side. It is likely to be more difficult than it seems, both as a result of feelings attached to the stuff, and because you will end up continuously making a list of items you now must replace. However you need to do it swiftly, and efficiently. Rip the band-aid off abruptly, and the agony will probably diminish quicker.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

After 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 bedroom. You need it away from your place, so that you can breathe for a bit and distance yourself from the memories.

That does not mean pitch it out the window or drop it on the curb (satisfying 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 home. In the event that 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 place; the last thing you want when attempting to pick up and move on is an elephant remaining 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 go, now that you've broken up. And of course, finding a house is no cup of tea, specially when you are doing it by yourself. And that's why, while you have lots of other stuff to do, you should help locate a place for them to go.

Whether it means finding a different apartment that's open and in their price 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 let the grass grow underneath your ex's feet. You want them on their way along with their things, and if 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: Don't Backslide

Breaking up is hard, there's no two ways about that. But when you need to do something, it's important to take definite actions on the way to finalization daily. If you do not have enough time, or the vigour, to pack up everything in one day, then pack just one room per day or even 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 the city looking into apartment costs, don't worry, you possess 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 moving forward, rather than just keeping where you are... or even worse, hoping for everything to just fix itself.
