MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Being professional movers in San Antonio, we've assisted people to move for all sorts of different reasons. Sometimes, the reason is a happy one, and in some cases, it's as a result of challenging event such as a divorce, death or break-up. We undoubtedly are not here to judge, but alternatively to provide a few recommendations that we have accumulated over the years for aiding people to move following a break-up.

Moving in together is a trial; an assessment of if you and your partner can tolerate each other when you're in close proximity on daily basis. Many couples pass with ease, and others... well, some do not. If you are in this second group, and you need to make sure that your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend gets out and stays out, then it is essential that you ensure you do not skip a trick when it comes to the moving out process in San Antonio.

If you want to be sure they can't play the, "Well, I'm in the area, and recollected I still had some belongings to get," card, then you need to adhere to these pointers.

Tip #1: Get Organized

Whenever you live with someone, your belongings will most likely mingle. In spite of this, if you've broken up, it should be the perfect time to re-draw those lines making it apparent whose items are whose. So, proceed room by room, and place all of your ex's things aside. It is going to be tougher than it seems, both as a result of memories linked to the things, and because you will be continually preparing a list of things you now need to replace. However you need to do it promptly, and efficiently. Rip the band-aid off abruptly, and the sting is going to diminish faster.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

Once you have all of your ex's items in one place, do not simply place it in a closet, or perhaps let it stay in a extra room in your home. You need it away from your place, to help you to breathe for a while as well as distance yourself from the memories.

That does not mean chuck it out the window or drop it out on the curb (gratifying as that may be, dependant upon your situation). Yet, find their belongings a place outside of your home. Put it with one of your ex's best friends or perhaps move it to their mom's place. If all else fails, hire a professional mover in San Antonio and acquire a storage space. Give your ex the key to the storage locker so they can go get it when they are ready for it. But do not allow it to needlessly sit in your home; the very last thing you need when attempting to pick up and move forward is an elephant hanging in the room.

Tip #3: Find Them A New Place to Live

Another thing your ex could drag their feet on is searching for someplace to move to, now that you've broken up. And sure, choosing a residence is no fun task, especially when you will be doing it on your own. Which is the reason, though you have plenty of other things to carry out, you should help find a place for them to go.

Whether it means searching for a different apartment which is open and in their budget range (on the opposite side of town) or speaking with your pals to find out who can use an additional roommate, ensure you do not let the grass grow under your ex's feet. You'll need them on their way together with their stuff, and if they've got a place to live, they cannot pull the guilt trip that you're just throwing them out to the street.

Tip #4: You Should Never Backslide

Breaking up is tough, there is no two ways about that. However when you have to do something, it is advisable to take tangible steps on the way to finalization every single day. If you do not have the time, or the vigour, to pack up all things in one day, then pack just one area per day or call a moving company in San Antonio that will help with the packing and moving. If you're unable to drive all around the city checking on rental prices, do not worry, you've got the miracle of the smartphone and the Internet. Send a couple of emails or even place a few phone calls.

The main element is that you are advancing, rather than just staying where you are... or even worse, expecting everything to just fix itself.
