MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As professional movers in Dallas, we have assisted people to move for all types of different reasons. Sometimes, the reason is a happy one, and sometimes, it's as a result of difficult situation like a divorce, death or break-up. We absolutely aren't here to judge, but rather to offer some tips we have gathered through the years of helping individuals to move following a break-up.

Moving in with each other can be a trial period; an assessment of if you and your significant other can stand each other when you are in close proximity on daily basis. A number of couples pass with flying colors, and some... well, some don't. If you find yourself in that second grouping, and you must make sure that your old flame gets out and keeps out, then it's important that you make sure you do not miss a trick with regards to the moving out process in Dallas.

If you wish to be certain they cannot pull the, "Well, I found myself in the neighborhood, and recollected I still had some belongings to pick up," card, then you need to adhere to these pointers.

Tip #1: Get Organized

If you reside with another person, your things will usually combine. Having said that, if you have split up, it should be the perfect time to re-draw those lines so it will be apparent whose belongings are whose. Therefore, proceed room by room, and put all of your ex's things aside. It is probably going to be more complicated than it sounds, both because of the memories connected to the items, and since you will end up constantly preparing a listing of stuff you now must replace. Nevertheless you need to do it quickly, and efficiently. Tear the band-aid off all at once, and the agony will certainly fade away faster.

Tip #2: Get It Out of Your House

After you have all your ex's items in one place, don't just stick it in a closet, or leave it in a extra bedroom. You need it out of your place, so you're able to breathe for a bit and also distance yourself from the memories.

chuck it out the window or dump it out on the curb (gratifying as that might be, contingent on your situation). Yet, find their things a place beyond your home. Leave it with one of your ex's friends or take it to their mom's house. In case everything else fails, hire a professional mover in Dallas and acquire a storage space. Give your ex the key to the storage locker to allow them to go get it when they are ready for it. But do not allow it to remain in your home; the last thing you need when trying to pick up and move forward is an elephant sitting in the room.

Tip #3: Get Them A Different Place to Live

One more thing your old flame may drag their feet on is searching for somewhere to move to, now that you've broken up. And sure, finding a residence isn't a picnic, especially when you're doing it alone. Which is why, though you have loads of other stuff to carry out, you need to help search for a spot for them to move.

Whether it means searching for a different apartment that is available and within their budget (on the other side of the city) or talking with your pals to determine who could use another roommate, be sure you don't allow the grass grow beneath your ex's feet. You need them out the door along with their belongings, and when they've got a place to go, they cannot play the guilt trip that you'll be just throwing them out onto the street.

Tip #4: You Should Never Backslide

Splitting up is hard, there is no two ways about that. But if you have to do something, it's important to take definite actions toward completion every single day. If you don't have the time, or the energy, to pack up everything one day, then pack one area per day or perhaps get in touch with a moving company in Dallas that will help with the packing and moving. If you're unable to drive all over town looking into apartment prices, don't fret, you have the power of the smartphone and the Internet. Write a few emails or make a few calls.

The important thing is that you are advancing, rather than just keeping where you are... or worse still, expecting everything to just repair itself.
