If the new home requires some DIY, not only will the school holidays be one of the perfect times to get the jobs completed, but you’ll have helpful hands to help complete those jobs with you. Children love to decorate their own room, picking their own colors or wall paper and some times matching curtains and bed sheets.
When booking a house removal during the school summer holidays, children can get frustrated that they will not be able to see or spend the school summer holidays with their friends. Parents moving home will experience this at some point during the move, especially for children from the age of 8 and above this can be a traumatic time. School Summer holidays are the times children have been waiting for, taking trips abroad with the family, relaxing with friends and exploring their community. Once this has been taken away they will need something to keep their mind occupied. Try to organize something for them to do once you have arrived at the new home, as they may get bored and agitated not being able to spend time with their friends during the summer periods.
