Anyone who’s ever been through a move knows it can be a stressful experience - and even more so when relocating abroad. The stresses of moving affect not only you but your family too, especially when young children or elderly family members are involved.

Removal Services Scotland has put together ‘The Ultimate Family Moving Guide’ in partnership with - so whether you're a moving pro or a first timer, our handy guide can take the stress out of your next move.

By compiling the best advice from an array of experienced movers, parent bloggers and psychologists on the emotional effects of such a big life change, the guide aims to make the move feel like a less daunting prospect. As any expat knows, the key to a successful move is all in the preparation. By readying yourself for any possible bumps in the road ahead of time, you can rest assured you’ll be prepared to handle anything moving throws at you.

It’s all too easy to get caught up in the practicalities of the move and forget about other aspects of family life when relocating abroad. This unique guide focuses on all aspects of the moving process, from packing up your home to settling into your new one. The guide addresses issues faced by young children, such as confusion and emotional upset surrounding the move. It’s packed full of handy tips to keep the kids happy and entertained, helping them deal with the transition of moving. There are also lots of useful tips for the problems that can be encountered when moving with elderly family members, dealing with moving away from friends and family, the practicalities of taking your pets with you and, of course, top packing tips.
