As relocation specialists, we can help you relocate for work, school, or just for fun. Regardless of whether you need to move your family to take a new job or you are trying an adventure far from home, relocating requires far more than it does to simply move out of the neighborhood or across town. This is why it helps to have a relocation specialist in your corner. We can provide you with a quote and help you get where you need to be without stress and without incident. In the meantime, here are a few moving tips to make the process far easier:

#1 - Ask your employer if they offer relocation assistance.

If you are moving for your current job or are beginning to work for a new employer, ask about relocation assistance. Many employers offer this, and the money can be put to good use to pay for your moving expenses. This allows you to receive the help you need to move and not have to worry about packing and moving on your own.

#2 - Move what you need and get rid of the rest.

Too many people will pack everything in their house, only to find that some of the boxes are never unpacked and take up space in the garage. When you are going through your house, identify things that you and your family no longer need, and sell or give them away. For example, your five-year-old no longer needs their crib or bouncy chair, and if you haven’t played bocce ball in 20 years, there is a good chance you never will. While it does take time to go through your things, doing so will ensure that you are not carrying clutter into your new home.

#3 - Research online.

Once you know where you are moving to, it is time to look for a neighborhood. Conducting research online can help you identify areas with good schools and the amenities you are looking for. Some real estate sites will give you a quick snapshot of what is around the homes you are examining. By narrowing your search down to specific neighborhoods, you will have parameters to give your real estate agent.

#4 - Work with a local realtor.

A local real estate agent can help you find a new home to buy or rent, even if you cannot see it in person. With features like virtual tours and most people having smartphones, your realtor can even walk you through the home remotely. Some people prefer to rent for the first year so they can make sure it really is the neighborhood they want to stay in.

#5 - Hire movers who are

relocation specialists.

We work with individuals, couples, and families who are in the midst of relocating within their state or cross country. Regardless of where you are, we can help. Moving can be stressful, in part because of how much work it is to pack everything up, load the truck, drive it where it needs to be, and then unload it. Overall, that is a great deal of work, and when you are planning for a new job or securing new schools for the kids, that can just add to the stress. As professional movers, we can pack everything, dismantle your furniture, load the truck, move it, unpack it, and even put your furniture back together again.

We can make your move easier and low-stress. Call today to get started.

Moving Doesn’t Have to Be Horrific — Local Movers Make It Easy

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Local Movers

If you are terrified at the prospect of moving, you don’t have to be. As local movers, we get it. Most people are so busy with work, taking the kids to and from school, grocery shopping, cooking dinner, and spending limited time with friends and family, simply keeping up with the laundry can be ridiculously hard. If you have ever stepped over piles of unfolded clean clothes or eaten cereal for dinner, then you know what we’re talking about. That’s life and when you throw a curve ball in, like packing up the entire house to move, life goes from being busy and hard to flat-out overwhelming. If this sounds like you, if you want to buy a new house but cannot fathom dealing with the actual moving part, call us.

Moving Shouldn’t Give You Nightmares

If the biggest thing standing between you and your new house is the fear of having to move, it is time to work with professionals. There is no need to feel stressed out or worried about the actual moving process when you can hire people to do it for you. Most people make the mistake of thinking that they only need a moving company if they are moving across the state or across the country. While this is certainly true, local moves can be just as stressful and overwhelming. The process of packing and unpacking doesn’t change, so even if you are moving down the street, hiring a professional can make your life far easier.

What Local Movers Can Do for You

When you give us a call, we will discuss your needs in greater detail. A few of the things we will want to know is how many rooms are in your current house, where you are moving to, how quickly you need to move, and whether you want help preparing to move or simply transporting everything. Our services can include:

Packing up your entire house.

This is no exaggeration. Our team can come in and pack up everything from your throw pillows to your medicine cabinet and everything in between. There is nothing too large or too small for us to pack, and everything will be packed very carefully. Using bubble wrap and secure boxes, everything will have a set spot and be labeled based on the room it came from. This way, you won't end up with a toy box in the kitchen.

Taking down furniture.

We can disassemble your furniture so it easily fits into the truck. This is done with care, and we will ensure that all the parts get moved correctly so it can be put back together in the new house.

Loading the truck and driving it.

As local movers, we will load the truck and drive it to your new home. You can direct us if you like, but there is no need. We have it covered so you can focus on everything else.

Unload and unpack.

Once we arrive at your new home, we will unload the truck and put the boxes and furniture into the corresponding rooms. We will then assemble your furniture so everything is fully functional and as it should be. As for your boxes, whether or not we help to unpack is entirely up to you.

Local Movers Make Moving a Breeze

We make moving enjoyable, or as close as it possibly can be. Don’t go it alone when you don't have to. Call us today for a free estimate.

Professional Movers Can Relocate Your Office

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers

As professional movers, we work a great deal with homeowners who have bought a new home, are moving out of the area, etc., but we also work with many businesses that are relocating. A business move can be incredibly tedious, complex, and stressful. Simultaneously, moving to a new sparkling building or an office with a view can be exciting and symbolize your company’s increased success. Our goal is to handle the move so you can enjoy the positive aspects of change, rather than the work it takes to get there.

Professional Movers Can Pack You Up

One way we save you time is by packing for you. This is hugely beneficial because it means your employees will not need to take time out of doing their actual jobs to worry about the move. Your customers will still be taken care of and everything squared away while we handle the actual packing and moving.

We Deliver Everything

Once we have packed up your offices, we can deliver what you need to your new office location without delay. Many of the businesses we work with have us pack up their offices on a Friday afternoon so their business is not interrupted. Whether your move is to the office building down the street or to a new city, we can pack up and deliver everything to your new office.

Professional Movers Can Unpack for You

One of the best parts of our service (according to our customers) is that we can unpack for you as well. After packing up and moving everything to your new location, we can unload it, put furniture and boxes in their proper new offices, and unpack. This can mean rebuilding desks and chairs and putting things back where they were. While we will need some guidelines regarding exactly what you want to be done and where you want it to go, this is certainly an option for you.

For an Easy Move, Call Professional Movers

We can help you get all set up in your new offices right away. By packing up your current offices, delivering furniture, boxes, and everything else to your new location, we make it possible for you to be up and running on the same day. All you need to do is have someone provide direction regarding where things need to go. On your end, you should plan on having the cable and telephone company out the next or same day, so everything can be installed and connected immediately. If you do this on the weekend, the phone that worked prior to the move will work again on Monday morning.

As professional movers, we can get you where you need to be without missing a beat. Our crew is incredibly careful and will make sure everything is packed appropriately and safely so it is delivered in optimal condition. Rather than asking your team to help pack up and take down furniture then unload and set up, you can count on us to handle this for you while they keep up with the job you hired them for.

As residential movers, we can help you reach your next home faster and without the added stress that comes from needing to pack up everything on your own. Understandably, moving is a major stressor for most people. The act of needing to find a new home, go through the process of closing on a purchase, selling your current home, and then needing to pack everything up can take months. For people who are busy, have young children, or do not want to deal with the headache, professional movers can make the entire process go far more smoothly.

How It Works:

When you call us, we can provide you with a quote based on the number of rooms in your house and how far you are moving. Whether you are moving across town or across the state, we can help and provide you with a thorough quote. On the day of your move, our expert team will show up and begin to pack everything for you into nicely labeled moving boxes. If you have already packed, we can simply load those items onto the truck. The other thing we can assist with is breaking down your furniture. Very often, this is the number one reason people have for hiring a moving company. Loading heavy coaches and dressers into the truck can be difficult, especially from a second story. Our team can handle it so you do not have to.

Next, our residential movers will drive the truck to your new home. You can follow in your personal vehicle, and once we arrive, our team will unload the truck for you. This allows you to direct our team by indicating where you want everything placed. You can spend time deciding what bed to put in which bedroom, instead of being the one to unload the truck. Our team is incredibly experienced and will also be able to put the furniture back together for you.

If you have ever moved, only to pass out on the floor exhausted at night, this is certainly the way to go. You can sleep soundly in your own bed, one that was moved and put back together by a professional. If you have young children or are not physically capable of moving a lot of furniture and boxes, this is definitely the best way to go for your next move.

Packing Tips From Long Distance Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Long Distance Movers

Long Distance Movers

If you are moving across the state or even the country, long distance movers can help ease the process. Instead of feeling extra stressed trying to pack everything into your vehicles or borrowing cars from friends and family, hire long distance movers to do the hard work for you. We can free up your time so you can focus on the details of your move— like labeling items accurately, determining what order you would like your belongings packed in, and getting everything settled as far as school, work, and bills go at your new home. We hope these packing tips will make your experience even quicker and more enjoyable.

Pack Several Light Items in a Large Box

From our experience as long distance movers, we have learned that many people waste a lot of space with small boxes filled with light items. If you combine several light boxes or light items in one large tub or box, it will stack more easily into the truck, and you will have fewer items to keep track of. Don’t waste valuable space with knickknacks, but label a large box full of items instead.

Keep Prized Possessions With You

While we have plenty of experience keeping your belongings safe, we always recommend that our customers keep their most prized possessions in their personal vehicle. If items like old family photographs and videos, precious jewelry, and expensive technology are with you, you can better keep an eye on them and keep them out of the elements more successfully. You can also ensure that no one breaks into your vehicle to steal them.

Remove Breakables From Larger Pieces of Furniture

If you are moving a china cabinet or even a lamp, you may want to consider removing glass cabinets and light bulbs before packing the furniture in tightly. You can keep more fragile items like glass or fine wood in a designated area so it won’t get mixed in with more sturdy furniture like couches and fridges that could harm it.

Secure Your Pets

Pets get excited about moving too. As long distance movers, we have become accustomed to making new furry friends when we help our customers pack. We want your pets to be safe, so instead of allowing your dogs (or cats) to run around excitedly, risking getting hit by the moving truck or tripping someone who is carrying a heavy object, tie them up or take them in a room where the door can be closed to protect them.

These tips are only a few that we can offer you when you call us to learn more about how long distance movers can help you successfully transition into a new home and life. Even if you have moved several times, the long distance movers at our company have done it more— we can guarantee it. Leave packing techniques and carrying delicate and cumbersome loads to the professionals. Call or visit today to learn more about how we can help you move more quickly and efficiently.  

Hire the Best Moving Services Company

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Services

Many companies have sprung up that offer moving services. When it comes time for you to move, it is important for you to know who you are dealing with, what the costs are going to be, and if there are any variables (like weight and distance). Unfortunately, in the moving services industry, there are many ways to get cheated or feel cheated by an unscrupulous player. For our customers, we want you to understand the services we are providing and give you an opportunity to do the research, so what you see is what you get. Here are a few things you should always know about a moving services company before you hire them to move your valuables.

When hiring a moving service company, you should make sure you have a complete estimate in writing before engaging their services. This means when you hire us, we will come to the house and give you an estimate based on actuals, rather than hypotheticals. What this does is serve the best interest of both parties. As the person moving, you get a realistic idea of what the cost is going to be based on the stuff you have, not on some algorithm or estimate that could be wildly off. For us, as the moving services provider, we are able to see what needs to be moved and give you an estimate based on what it is going to cost with no unexpected surprises. Additionally, it is paramount that you get any estimates in writing so it can go into the agreement. We believe that once a price has been quoted, both sides are bound to it, and so providing a quote in writing is just par for the course.

Reputation is important in the moving services industry. People tend to go looking for a mover at the very last minute, and this often results in them hiring the wrong people based on good rankings on Google. When you are hiring someone to move your home and the things you cherish, it is important that you find out a little about them. Online reviews, recommendations, and references are a good way to go about discovering this kind of information. A mover with a good track record and a great reputation, like us, will work extra hard to protect that reputation and give you the best service for your money.

A standard frustration we hear from other movers is based around delivery times. We want to know when to deliver your stuff. This allows us to set a realistic expectation, and we ask that you have a level of flexibility as well, so we can under-promise and over-deliver. As a moving service provider, we are well aware that you are waiting on your stuff so you can populate your new residence, which means we will pull into your house as soon as the truck gets into town. Clearing your schedule for the 24-hour period of delivery so we can do our job efficiently and professionally would make our life, and your delivery, much smoother.

Moving Companies Can Make it Easy to Relocate Your Family

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Companies

Family with Boxes

Moving companies are known for making a transition to a new home easier. When you have to move, you may be experiencing emotions related to saying goodbye to close friends and colleagues, and you probably do not know how to start a successful transition amidst all the busyness you are currently facing.

Why You Should Use Moving Companies for Your Next Transition

Using moving companies versus making a move yourself can be the difference between arriving with all of your belongings safe and intact or having furniture break and feeling stressed throughout your move. Before you decide to make a move without the extra help, you should ask yourself a few questions.

  • How much time and money will it take to pack, load, move, and unload everything yourself?
  • How many belongings do you have, and would renting a truck end up costing the same as hiring movers to do everything for you?
  • Do you need to focus on finishing up work-related tasks instead of packing a moving vehicle?
  • Do you have large or fragile items or appliances that need special handling?
  • Do you have to juggle your move with children and work?

Moving companies make all the above easier to navigate by providing an extra hand, necessary supplies, and a quality moving truck at an affordable price. Moving is already stressful, so it is important to weigh your options and choose a moving company that will make the move a breeze. Quality moving companies are insured, so you know in a dire situation that your items will be protected and/or replaced. Some moving companies even provide storage facilities if you need extra time to move your items after the sale of a house or while you wait for a work relocation to be completed.

Moving Companies Provide Moving and Packing Tips

In addition to getting the job done for you, moving companies also provide much-needed tips for packing before the trip. First, you should begin planning for your move as many months in advance as possible. Last minute moves are the hardest because many household items get thrown into boxes in no particular fashion and end up getting lost or damaged. Whenever you have a free moment before your move, take the time to pack up one box at a time with plenty of tissue, wrap, or newspaper to protect items. Label every box you pack with what is included inside.

You should create a variety of checklists to help the transition remain smooth. It is important to list business-related ventures that need to be accomplished as soon as possible. Many of these can be done over the phone pre-move. You will need to set up new bank accounts, enroll children in school, change your mailing address, and more. This can become stressful if it is added on to unpacking. You should also make a list of important items that will need to be unpacked first, so your moving company can place them in a strategic order on the truck. Many people like to unpack kitchen appliances and bedroom items like beds and clothes first.

Many moving companies provide some packing supplies to help a move go more smoothly, but these supplies are normally limited to what is necessary to keep things safe in the truck. You will want to supply your own boxes, bubble wrap, and tape to keep things in order unless notified otherwise. A moving company will also label your items in a particular order for you, if necessary, so they are more efficiently removed from the truck.

The success of your move is ultimately up to you. Moving companies exist to make the entire experience easier on you and your family. When you want the best for your belongings and the fastest and safest move, contact us to learn more.
