FreeBSD-11.2 routing and networks

I am working on a FreeBSD-11.2p17 host where I must change the IP
address and gateway frequently to carry out tests.  Following making
such changes I have tried resetting the network interfaces and routing
tables by use of the command:

service netif restart && service routing restart &

However, I have discovered that this does not have the desired effect
and I am reduced to restarting the host system to make such changes. 
Is there something else I should be doing?
