Relocation As Your New Year’s Resolution

new years countdown

The beginning of the New Year is often used as a prompt for people to make a positive change in their lives. Even organizations such as our movers in Oakville use the “new beginnings” prospect to analyze ways to improve upon our business. We look at new route alternatives, driver communication initiatives, and of course methods to enrich the entire customer experience. For example, in 2013 we look to better engage our customers on Social Media (apparently it’s not a passing fad).

We have become a deep rooted part of the community. We know that you, along with the extended family of staff at our headquarters and beyond will be deliberating over what New Year’s resolution you and your loved ones will undertake beginning this January 2 (you should just relax on the 1st). In the spirit of this potentially life changing process we thought we’d provide our “two cents” by suggesting one of the most uplifting changes you can make in the New Year – a move. Here we discuss how a home relocation could be precisely what you need to start 2013 off on the right foot and headed in a new direction:


Cleaning Out the Closet

Many of us can identify a few characteristics within us comparable to some of the characters that have graced A&E Network’s Hoarders, minus the obvious extremes (we hope). For certain a majority have vowed to keep the home clear of clutter and unnecessary knick knacks in the future starting with the first of January year after year since we started making resolutions. But that rule gets broken more often than the one that keeps us in the gym for at least one month into the new annum. We gain sentimental attachments to “things” so quickly because hey, you never know when you will need that no longer operational 1981 rear projection Sony TV – it makes a great coat rack anyways. However when you are on the verge of a relocation, you begin to take stock of what you really need to bring with you on the move because the only thing you hate more than throwing stuff away is packing it up and carting off to a fresh new home. A relocation is a perfect incentive to keep your resolution of shedding your excess and keeping it that way.

A Sign of Commitment

The holiday season has a way of bringing out big decisions with respect to affairs of the heart. There are under the mistletoe proposals and keys-to-ones-place given as presents and with such commitments comes choices to be made with respect to mutual living arrangements. If you’ve decided as your resolution to take a big step in your relationship then moving in together may be your logical next step for you and your loved one and what better way to start the New Year than by merging your union into one household – an ultimate resolution/relocation scenario for certain.

A New Job May Come To New Jacks (or Jills) in the City

A definite New Year resolution for many involves finding a new job – something that you love to do in a surrounding that allows you to grow personally and professionally. If this is your resolution then it is quite possibly the case because you have been living in the wrong place. Your dream job may very well be found far outside of your area code and thus to accommodate your New Year resolution you may have to find accommodations in a new city. Scary? You bet. Go for it.

A New Outlook

Sometimes to make a big change in your life you simply need to see things from a new window – literally. That’s right. We’re not being poetic here. Sometimes moving for the sake of moving is the best thing you can do. You may currently be happy in your job, social circles, and health but something may feel “off”. It may be complacency or a rut, whatever you want to call it, but often the only cure is by moving, even if it’s within the same area code. Some of us humans simply aren’t meant to stay in one place for too long and thus the perfect resolution for such an individual would be to migrate to a new home for a change of scenery. It’s a rejuvenating feeling.

We hope we gave you something to think about during this exciting transition into the New Year ahead. Our team would like you wish you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
