The first thing that you need to prepare other than the things is yourself. Financially, mentally and even physically, you need to be ready for the move. Breaking the news to your entire family may not be accepted in a positive way as some kids may not want to move or some people in the household may not be open to it.
Next would be to plan and pack. Hiring a moving company can make things easier for you. You can rent a truck, pack your things and label them accordingly. Also, make it a point to familiarize yourself with the various moving insurances as you will need it when doing business with the moving company.
Adjusting in the new community that you are in would be easy if you are comfortable in the neighborhood that you are in. When unpacking your stuff, you will move with ease if you packed your things right and label your things accordingly.
