We are home movers that help a lot of military families to move after being stationed at a new base or moving once released from duty. Our military families will often move numerous times over the course of her career, sometimes once every 2 to 3 years. Moving this frequently can be difficult and it can be exhausting. Many of the families that contact us have tried to move before and have been entirely worn out by the process. Fortunately, we can help and by doing so, we make it easy to get settled into a new home without feeling exhausted.

Where is the family going to be stationed next?

We can handle cross-country moves so it really does not matter which base the family is stationed at or where they are going, our professional movers can get the job done.

How quickly does the move need to take place?

We have worked with military families that knew well in advance what their next orders were going to be but also help to move families that have been told that within a matter of weeks, they need to move. In both scenarios, our services make it easier to plan, pack and move the family into a new home.

Moving a family takes a lot of work

As home movers, we understand that the actual packing and moving of belongings is just a small part of what goes into a move. Families also need to:

  • Get medical and shot records from the family physician before moving, then identify a new doctor
  • Get records from current schools and enroll children in new ones
  • Decide what to do about the existing house, whether renting it or putting it up for sale
  • Find a new home to rent or purchase
  • Discontinue services with the existing utility companies
  • Set new services with utility companies at the new home

These things are in addition to getting acclimated once at a new home and finding things like the closest grocery store, park and urgent care clinics just in case one of the kids get sick. This is a lot to handle and a lot to coordinate. Doing this while also trying to pack every box and worry about how belongings and furniture are going to get from point A to point B can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful. Without help, the experience can be truly horrible. This is why we recommend people hire our services. We can handle moving the contents of the home so that the family can focus on moving themselves and making the other important transitions.

  • Pack the entire house, labeling each box appropriately

We can do all or a portion of these services, depending on what a family's needs are.

Home Movers Can Help You to Plan Ahead

Home MoversMoving is incredibly taxing, but as professional home movers, we can make it easier. For most people, the decision to move is not an easy one. It can take months or even years to find the right home or location. Finding the perfect home is only beginning. The move can be even more taxing and time-consuming than most people plan for. Having been on the side of coordinating moves for years, we know how to plan ahead to make the process far easier.

#1. Think about the timing

There is far more to timing a move than deciding what the move-in date is going to be. The individuals moving need to take steps prior to moving to prepare for the process. How long is this going to take? That depends on several factors including the size of the home. A home that is under a thousand square feet and only two bedrooms will take significantly less time to pack than a 5-bedroom, 3,000 square foot house.

It is wise to plan on the moving process taking an entire day to pack a room if the packing is being done by the homeowner. It takes much less time when we are involved because we bring in a crew that can pack all the rooms up at the same time and is usually done in one or two days.

#2. Get rid of what is unnecessary

When planning a move, taking the time to eliminate objects in the home that are unnecessary is wise. For example, is it really necessary to move a broken couch? is there a box of junk that no one has used in 10 years?These are questions that every homeowner needs to consider because moving unnecessary objects only transfers clutter from one home to the next and the more objects there are to move, the more expensive the move will be. This is an excellent time to start fresh by getting rid of old junk.

#3. Lifting furniture and boxes can be a concern

Many families use our services as home movers because of how difficult it is to move large and heavy objects. The dining room table, king size bed, dressers, mattresses, fireplaces, couches and more can be incredibly heavy and difficult to lift. Without a group of strong and experienced friends, moving can be nearly impossible. There is a risk of injury and it always takes longer than anticipated due to how difficult it is to move such heavy objects. Our crew does this every day, is highly trained and can move without an issue.

#4. Driving the truck

Driving the truck is more complicated than it seems, in part due to the size. It can be difficult for inexperienced drivers to navigate such a huge vehicle in and out of traffic or on a crowded city street. Also, there is the question of how personal vehicles will be transported to a new home if the homeowner is driving the moving truck. This creates an additional challenge and the need to enlist the help of friends or family. When they are not available for a long-distance move, it is far easier to hire home movers and drive personal vehicles yourself.
