Moving Gracefully: A Guide to Relocating Yourself & Your Family

Carol Miller Fradkin. CreateSpace, $17.95 trade paper (336p) ISBN 978-1-4528-9932-9
For this handy and thorough guidebook to moving, Fradkin draws on her own experiences of moving more than 20 times, which, surely, should qualify her as an expert. Fradkin tackles moving from every conceivable angle, beginning with making the decision to move, followed by detailed information and tips about selling houses, interpreting real estate listings, mortgage shopping, finding a new home, tools of the hunt (e.g., tape measure, digital camera), renting versus buying, then goes on to selecting a moving company, creating an inventory of belongings, and getting ready for moving day. Entire chapters are devoted to moving with pets ("Moving is very stressful on fish, and quite risky") and children ("They may be angry [especially older children] and sad"). Packing tips include how to handle hazardous items that can't be stored in moving vans, advice about items that can be damaged by heat, and suggestions about items that should be transported personally. Fradkin concludes with information about unpacking, safety, security, and a listing of useful Web sites. This guidebook serves as a definitive, comprehensive manual.
