Moving somebody’s life is a tall task, but with you helping out your friend or neighbor’s move will be much easier for everyone. Read on to learn how to help a friend move and care for them during this stressful event.

Before Moving

Try to help out with packing. It not only helps make the long process a lot less lonely and makes it go by much quicker.

Take Photos

Their now-former house is worthy of preserving in their memory, so remind them to take a few pictures before they move into their apartment or take them themselves.

Watch their Kids or Pets

Depending on whether your friend or neighbor has younger kids or needy pets, you can relieve them of extra stress by taking the pets or kids somewhere else or occupying them with some activities. Hopefully, your friend or neighbor’s apartment community is moving into has a playground for them to spend some time at while you help move everything.

Bring Some Food for the Move

As your friend prepares to move out, home-cooked meals can become quite scarce. You can help your neighbor or friend and their packed schedule by making them some frozen meals and placing them into their freezer.

Help Clean Out the New Spot

Moving into a squeaky clean apartment is much nicer than moving into a dirty one. Take some time to help clean out their new space.

During Move Day

Make sure to show up with a positive attitude to help your friend with their move. It will be a huge morale boost for everyone involved.

Be Open and Communicate for the Move

Tell your friend or neighbor exactly how long you can be there, which tasks you feel comfortable helping with, and do not be afraid to ask for clarification.

Help Set Up Beds

Offer to blow up any mattresses or unroll sleeping bags for your friend or neighbor and their family. This way, they do not need to do the extra work before resting at the end of a long move-in day.
