Moving house, also referred to as transient relocation, or mobile moving, is usually the act of one or more people moving out of one home and moving into another. The phrase originated from the days when people would move from one country to another temporarily for business purposes. A temporary relocation may be to another state, to a nearby state within the same community, or even to a far away place entirely. There are those who are lucky enough to have their own land, free and clear, and are not troubled by the concept of moving house. But for others, who do not have that luxury, and who have to leave their homes, the phrase moving house comes into play.
Moving house is a lot like relocating to a new job. If you’ve worked somewhere for the duration of your working life, chances are you’ll have some familiar (and some not-so-familiar) terms and systems in place. Moving into a new place (even if it’s just down the road a bit) is not that much different, except that you’ll be starting from scratch. When you relocate from one place to another, you have to learn what you used to call each other, such as employer and employee, boss and employees, and other similar terms.
For people who are relocating from somewhere else, they’ll need to make a moving house checklist. This checklist will act as their guide through the process, listing all the things that they need to pack and load into their vehicle, so that they can move on the very next day. The items on the checklist need to be organized in a way that makes sense to the individual, as they may have things that have to stay in their vehicle or are fragile, and have to put them in certain places that they don’t necessarily want to disturb the rest of the items in the moving truck. If an item should break, such as glass, then it needs to be in a place where it won’t be damaged and potentially break someone’s arm by falling on it.
