Residential moving, Significant other

Moving in with your significant other is a big step and can be life-changing. Before you risk your relationship with poor preparation, take a look at our quick guide to cohabiting.

Compare Notes

Being on the same page is the foundation of a successful move when combining two households and lifestyles. It’s essential to consider your finances, how you’ll manage them, how you’ll combine them, and how you’ll resolve conflicts that arise when you can’t just hang up the phone to end them. It’s also important to talk about your belongings and furniture and what will make it to the shared space and what won’t. This can mean deciding what to keep and what to toss, and you might not agree on everything. Be honest and work on compassion and compromise in areas where you might not be in sync.

Talk Logistics

Residential moving is exciting, but it’s also challenging and stressful. This is especially true when two people are moving from two homes and combining them into a new one. Understanding the move process will help it go smoothly, as will working with an experienced moving company that can help you manage the logistics. Professional packing and scheduling to help you and your significant other arrive at the same place will take some of the stress out of the process.

When you’re taking the leap and moving in with your significant other, the first thing to do after celebrating the decision is to schedule your moving company. Contact Nilson Van and Storage for all the support you need to make your new togetherness a reality.
