5 Packing Mistakes to Avoid When Moving Your Residence

When you start to pack for a residential move, it’s easy to assume that you can load a box however you like. But, some packing approaches simply don’t work well.

Packing with the wrong materials can damage your things. Packing the wrong way can make the problem worse.

Here are five mistakes to avoid when you start packing your stuff.

1. Using Worn Boxes

Buying all new moving boxes can add up. It might be tempting to reuse whatever you can. In some cases, that’s a bad idea.

Reusing a box that’s in good condition may save time and money, but you need to make sure the boxes are still sturdy enough for your relocation. 

Avoid using cartons that are worn or damaged. For instance, don’t use boxes that show signs of being wet or have broken corners. Cartons in this condition might be weak and not have their original sturdy integrity.

2. Insufficient Labeling

Once you finish packing a box, it’s tempting to tape it and move on. But, you need to label it properly first.

Inadequate labeling makes it harder for you to tell where the box should go at your new home. It can also make it impossible to tell what’s inside it.

Buy a pack of inexpensive labels and a dark marker. Write the room and the general contents on the label. With a little effort, unpacking will take a lot less time.

3. Wrapping Items in Newspaper

If you have delicate items to pack, you need a way to wrap them. Bubble wrap or packing paper costs money, but it’s usually a better investment than old newspapers.

When you hold a newspaper, you may notice that the ink transfers to your hands. It will do the same thing to your delicate items.

This is true for advertisements you get in the mail, too. Recycling them is best to keep the ink from staining your belongings.

4. Overloading the Box

When you look at box prices, you might wonder why a small box isn’t half the price of a box that is twice as large. But don’t let your budget trick you into thinking that large boxes are better.

Overloading a box makes it harder to move and more likely to break open. You’re putting your stuff at risk, as well.

It’s better to pack a box with care. Plan to use small boxes most of the time. Add medium or large boxes for bulky stuff that doesn’t weigh as much.

5. Not Using Enough Tape

It’s a running gag in every sitcom with a moving episode. Unfortunately, someone fails to tape the box correctly, and the bottom falls out during loading.

You don’t need to cover the entire box with packing tape. But, you should make sure to cover all openings.

If you’re running low on tape, devote more to the bottom of the box. Or better yet, buy several rolls of tape, so you never run out.

6 Tips for Moving With an Infant

Planning well to ensure you have everything you need when moving with a baby is essential. You also need to keep in mind the health of your new baby and your own health. Working with professional household movers can make your job easier, so you can focus on what matters during your upcoming move.

1. Make a List of Everything You Need

Infants need a lot of things! From diapers to blankets to changes in clothing, infants need so many things that it’s hard to keep track. It’s important not to pack anything your infant will need during your relocation, so having a list of what your infant will need during and after will help you avoid problems.

Make a list of what your infant will need, and then set those items aside in a bag or a box, so you’ll have access to them throughout your upcoming move.

2. Bring Extras for Everything

Bring extras of everything you need and extras of those extras. Babies tend to dirty everything, so having backups will make your relocation more manageable and will also cut back on runs to the store to buy replacements for things that have been ruined or dirtied.

3. Pick a Pediatrician at Your New Location

If your baby gets sick when you arrive at your new home, you’ll want a doctor you can call on. Sometimes finding a doctor in a new location is challenging and time-consuming. You don’t want to be going through that with a sick baby. Select a pediatrician before relocation so you’ve got a place to take your baby if you need help from a medical professional.

4. Decide Whether You Need a Hotel

Staying in a new home with boxes of packed belongings and disassembled furniture isn’t so bad when it’s just you or you and a spouse, but when you’ve got a baby, it’s much more demanding.

You may need a hotel for the first few nights while unpacking your things in your new home. Having a comfortable room to sleep in could make the first several nights of your relocation much more restful and less stressful. Decide if this is the case and then make a reservation at a hotel if it would be good for you and your baby.

5. Ask for Help When You Need It

With a new baby, you may be sleep-deprived or physically limited in the kinds of activities that you can engage in. So overdoing it right now could have consequences for your health and your baby’s health as well.

Know when you need help from friends and family, and don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. You may need help babysitting or assistance moving boxes while watching the baby yourself. Either way, getting help is good for your health and your baby’s.

6. Work With a Good Moving Company

It takes time to move, especially if you’re trying to move with a baby. So work with a moving company, and let them help you through this significant life event! Contact us today to get a quote for your upcoming relocation.

6 Safety Tips for Unpacking in Your New Home

Moving involves a lot of physical and mental work. However, packing up is only half of the job—unpacking still requires a lot of energy, and the risk of injury increases if you’re tired. The following safety tips for unpacking after a household move will help ensure no one gets hurt as you settle into your new home.

1. Don’t Pack Boxes Too Heavy

To help make certain unloading boxes at the other end of the move isn’t too difficult, be sure not to pack the boxes too heavy; focus on efficiency. Heavy lifting can lead to serious injury if not careful—be sure to follow good practices.

2. Dress Appropriately

To minimize the risk of injury, be sure to dress appropriately. You won’t trip, get a sleeve snagged, or stumble. Plan to wear:

  • Pants
  • Long sleeves (if the weather is warm, a t-shirt is OK)
  • Closed-toe shoes

You’ll want to wear clothing that protects you but is not too loose-fitting, where it could get caught up in boxes, doorways, and other tight spaces. Sneakers are ideal, but if you need extra ankle support, consider sturdy work boots. You also may want to wear gloves to protect your hands.

3. Stay Hydrated and Nourished

Hydration and nourishment sometimes fall by the wayside during a hectic move. So be sure to have a cooler packed in your car before moving, or plan to make it a priority—Stock the cooler with easy-to-grab healthy snacks and plenty of water and drinks. Hydration is essential, especially during summer moves.

4. Plan for Children and Pets

To avoid injury, plan for small children and pets on moving days. First, see if trusted family or friends are available to watch them. If not, set up a safe space for them in the new home as you move all your belongings in. Children and pets can easily be injured, not to mention, if they get underfoot, the adults moving boxes and furniture in can get injured as well.

5. Clear Driveways and Walkways

If your moving day occurs in the fall or winter, your region may experience falling leaves, heavy rains, ice, or snow. Be sure the driveway and walkways are clear of debris to avoid slipping. You may need to shovel snow or treat surface areas in winter. Avoiding this task is not a good shortcut since one accident can cause serious injury.

6. Avoid Trying to Do Everything at Once

An important thing to remember is to not stress yourself out trying to get everything set up immediately. Unpacking and organization take time. Complete the significant tasks and focus on doing what you can each day. It’s OK to take a break between unpacking boxes to grab a snack, take a short walk, or do a few brief mindfulness exercises to reset. Eventually, everything will get done.

Ready to Plan Your Move?

Professional movers are skilled at transporting your belongings from your old place to your new home. Did you know many moving companies also offer unpacking services? Check with your mover to see what this entails—you can set up your new home in no time.

9 Office Decor Ideas That Inspire the Best Work

Moving to a new office provides an opportunity to change your office decor. Studies show that the environment can influence relationships, interactions, and motivations. Here are some office decor ideas that inspire creativity or productivity in the workplace.

1. Ensure Workers Have Inspiring Views

In the past, companies often had desks facing away from the windows because they thought the view would distract workers. However, looking out the window can alleviate stress and improve concentration. It also reminds workers to take a break from staring at the computer screen, which will help avoid eyestrain and headaches.

If you can’t give all the desks a window view, consider placing a calming or exciting artwork within easy view.

2. Bring in Green Plants

Green plants also relieve stress and improve memory and increase efficiency. Houseplants also contribute fresh air to enclosed spaces. The plants don’t have to be high maintenance to be effective. Even a succulent or cactus can help.

3. Use Natural Light When Possible

A study by a Cornell University professor found that workers in offices with natural light had 84 percent fewer headaches, eyestrain, and blurred vision symptoms. Fluorescent lighting, on the other hand, triggers migraines.

Take off the blinds, use sheer curtains, and locate desks near natural light, if possible. If you still need more light, use lamps rather than fluorescent lighting.

4. Prioritize Furniture Comfort Over Style

Stylish furniture might impress customers, but comfortable furniture is critical to improving employee productivity. For example, a worker sitting in an uncomfortable chair most of the day is highly likely to suffer from backaches and reduced concentration.

5. Provide Organizational Props

Clutter reduces productivity. Ensure your decor includes shelves and storage units so employees can easily organize their workspaces.

6. Provide Individual and Group Spaces

Different workers perform better in different environments. For example, some work better in consultation with others, while others require quiet. According to a U.S. Workplace Survey, innovative companies are more likely to accommodate both types of personalities by having both group and individual workspaces.

7. Carefully Consider Color Choices

Colors can also affect mood and productivity. For example, drab colors like gray, beige, and white might promote a gloomy atmosphere, while light blues and greens encourage productivity. Green, for example, is associated with creativity and balance, while blue is calming and the favorite of most people.

Red is associated with energy and passion, but too much of it is jarring to the senses. Also, studies have shown that red reduces analytical thinking. A little bright color can inspire passion, but avoid going overboard.

8. Tie Decor In With Room’s Purpose

Think carefully about the use of each room and what type of decor will most likely support the room’s usage. For example, quiet is essential for personal spaces, while friendliness is more critical in conference rooms and group areas. Also, ensure adequate power outlets are available in group and conference rooms.

9. Use The Right Scents

Scents can also affect the brain. For example, cinnamon helps focus the mind on work, and citrus lifts the spirit. Pine will increase alertness, and peppermint improves moods.

5 Ways to Entertain Your Pets on Moving Day

If you’re like many people, you have pets that you will bring to your new home. The trick is to occupy them during your household move.

Pets can tell that something is changing, and their behaviors might change as a result. Therefore, you need to protect them.

Here are five ways to ensure they are safe and out of the way during your move.

1. Ask a Friend for Help

As the movers are loading your items, you probably won’t pay as much attention to your pet as you usually would. So it’s an excellent opportunity to ask for help.

If you have a friend familiar with your pet, you might ask them to take your pet for the day. They can attend to your pet’s needs and give them extra attention.

Getting your pet out of the house is important for pets with complex needs or high anxiety. They’ll do better in a calmer environment.

2. Create a Pet-Safe Space

If you don’t have the option of getting your pet out of the house for moving day, you need to make a safe space for them in your home. Preferably, you can set aside one room of your home for your pet. But, first, have that room packed up and the boxes moved out. 

Then, if your pet has a crate or a specific bed they like to use, make this the central part of the space. That way, your pet can rest and relax with security.

If possible, avoid isolating your pet in a room for several hours. Instead, have members of your family take turns spending time with them.

3. Get New Toys

Pets love the comfort of the familiar. They also like positive stimulation, mental or physical.

In the days leading up to the move, introduce a handful of new toys for your pet. Then, give them a chance to explore and entertain themselves.

Make your pet’s space comfortable on moving day, and include old and new toys. The balance might help your pets avoid boredom.

4. Hire a Pet Sitter

 Hiring a pet sitter might be a good alternative if you must keep your pet close to home on moving day. A pet sitter can provide that individual attention, allowing you to focus on the move.

Be sure to vet the pet sitter before moving day to minimize stress and confusion. It’s better if you try out their services at least once beforehand.

Set a specific schedule with your pet’s routine on the list. The sitter can make sure everything happens according to plan.

5. Consider Temporary Lodging Options

Even if you have never considered pet lodging, researching your options is a good idea. You may need to find a place for your pet on moving day, even if it’s just for a few hours.

Pet boarding services vary depending on the business. Therefore, you’ll want to research them in advance. Try to do this at least a few weeks before you move.

Visit the location, and ask to see all the pet areas. Ask friends and family members for recommendations, as well.

Moving Assistance

Taking care of your pets is an important part of the moving process. With these tips, you’ll have an easier time. Contact us for more information about scheduling your upcoming move.

4 Steps to Planning a Local Move

While a local move is one of the easier types to plan, it’s still not simple! Taking the proper steps early can make your relocation more manageable and organized. Working with a moving company with local relocation experience is also helpful. In this article, we’ll outline the steps to planning a local move so you can start your upcoming relocation today.

1. Research Moving Companies

Finding the right moving company is vitally important. A good moving company should offer

  • Good customer service 

Companies that provide good customer service, answer their phone promptly, are polite in all interactions, and provide timely answers to your questions.

  • Reliable transportation of your property

A moving company’s main job is to move your stuff from one location to another without breaking or losing items. A good moving company will offer timely service without surprises.

  • Transparent billing practices

Good moving companies don’t charge hidden fees. The cost of your move should be the cost you’re expecting, based on documentation supplied to you by your moving company.

Sometimes it’s hard to find a good moving company with all the above qualities. Ask for referrals if you have friends or family who have recently moved and had a good experience. Meet with multiple moving companies before choosing a company. And, when signing a contract with a moving company, get everything in writing.

2. Declutter

Decluttering is an essential part of any relocation. Decluttering can help you save money on moving expenses and reduce the time you have to spend packing and unpacking. Start decluttering your house as soon as you choose to move — even if you aren’t relocating for several months. The more time you have to declutter, the better! Some tips

  • Declutter room by room
  • Sell or give away what you can – throw away only as a last resort
  • Make a rule: if you haven’t used it in two years or more, get rid of it

3. Start Packing

Once you finish decluttering, it’s time to start packing. You’ll need to gather lots of packing materials to get through this process, including boxes, packing materials, packing tape, and markers.

Pack safely. Get help lifting heavy items. When stacking boxes, place the heaviest boxes on the bottom and the lightest boxes on top. Control the weight of your boxes by packing small, heavy items into small boxes.

4. Plan for Your New Home

As your move date approaches, start making plans for your new home. For example, buy curtains and blinds if you know the measurements of your windows. Also, turn on utilities close to your move date. If you’re moving from an apartment into a house, you may need to make purchases specifically for living in a home.

For example, if your new home has a yard, you may need to purchase a lawn mower. Watch for sales on lawn equipment and buy what you’ll need when it’s the right price.

Tips for Emptying Your Refrigerator and Pantry Before Your Move

Most people are happy when they have a full refrigerator and a stocked pantry so they can create delicious meals to enjoy. But in the weeks preceding a residential move, your mindset will shift, and it will be a race to empty everything as much as possible.

Generally, moving companies won’t take food. So, you’ll either need to move these items yourself or find other ways to eliminate them. 

In many cases, too, organizing meals with the intent of ‘eating down” your fridge and pantry helps make cleaning easier, eliminates waste, and can be a huge money saver.

Consider the following tips for clearing your refrigerator and pantry before moving day.

Take Inventory

About a month before you move, carefully go through your food storage areas and make a preliminary list of what you need to get rid of before the move. Next, break this list into three smaller lists to better determine how to clear these items.

Dry and Canned Goods

Write down any food you can eat, donate, or take. Items in this category include dry goods, such as rice, beans, cereals, canned goods, spices, unopened condiments not yet refrigerated, and baking supplies. (Note: Donate things that are unopened and unexpired.)

Fresh and Frozen Foods

The second list should include any fresh and frozen foods that can either be eaten or, if not, thrown out or given away to people you know who can immediately preserve them.

Food to Take Along

You will also find some of these foods on the first two lists. Additions will include already opened condiments, sauces, and other long-shelf life items found in your refrigerator.

Once you’ve taken inventory, consider which foods would make great meals or desserts in the days leading up to your move.

Check Expiration Dates

As you examine each item, check the expiration dates, and throw out anything that is expired and no longer good to use.

Plan Meals

With the list of the foods you plan to eat before your move, try to pair items together to make meals. Another idea is to make meals to freeze and simply reheat – this is especially handy in the week leading up to your move when cooking would be a hassle and you’re short on time.

Ideas you can look at to make ready-to-eat meals include sandwiches, soups, pasta, stir fries, casseroles, frittatas, and bread (great for zucchini, bananas, and apples). You’d be surprised at how creative you can be while slimming down your kitchen and feeding your household.

Donate Unused Items

Foods that are unopened, unexpired, and you don’t plan to use are ideal candidates for donating to a local food pantry. One way to donate is through Move for Hunger, a nonprofit company working with movers to donate food to needy people.

You can also give food away to family, friends, and neighbors.

Avoid Trips to the Grocery

If you desperately need a few items, such as milk or eggs, and must go to the store, be sure to create a shopping list and stick to it. Alternatively, you can order groceries online and have them delivered, reducing the risk of overbuying items while in the store.

We Can Help Make Your Move Easier

If you’re like most people, you’ll have to throw away some food before you move if you can’t take it with you. However, the more you can plan and use up, the easier it’ll be in the days leading up to the move. (Pro tip: whatever you do take, be sure to pack these items carefully.)

13 Apps to Help You Sell Stuff Before You Move

A residential move is an excellent opportunity to eliminate items you no longer use. Many of these items will be sellable; one convenient way to sell items is through apps. Here are 13 apps to help you sell your stuff before your household move.

Craigslist

Craigslist is a tried-and-true option for selling large items, such as furniture. It’s local, so you won’t have to pay the cost of shipping heavy items. It is also suitable for several similar things, such as baby clothes or books.

Decluttr

For tech items, you enter the item and its condition, receive a valuation and ship it to Decluttr for free. Once the staff inspects the item, you receive payment via Paypal or direct deposit. You can also choose to donate your receipts to charity.

eBay

eBay has been around for some time and is still popular with buyers and sellers. You can sell just about anything you want on eBay. Your profile, however, is critical, and only one negative review can damage your ability to sell. Fifty listings are free, but eBay charges a commission on each sale.

Facebook

Another excellent place to sell items is on Facebook Marketplace. It is also free and convenient; prospective buyers can contact you through Facebook Messenger.

5miles

5miles is a mobile marketplace for secondhand goods that uses your location to match you with buyers in your area. It is free.

Nextdoor will enable you to connect with your new neighbors and is also an excellent place to sell stuff. You can post a description of what you have and answer email inquiries on the app. It is free.

OfferUp

OfferUp is also a local site and an excellent place to sell large items. It allows users to create profiles and includes ratings of both sellers and buyers.

Poshmark

Poshmark is an online fashion, beauty, and home decor marketplace. When you make a sale, the company sends you a pre-paid, pre-addressed label so that all you do is place the item in a package and drop it in a mailbox.

ThredUP

ThredUP is an online consignment shop. Its mission is to help the environment by eliminating clothing waste. You fill and send the company a “kit” with gently used items. They provide shipping labels. When your item sells, you receive cash or store credit.

Tradesy

Tradesy is a peer-to-peer network for selling clothes and accessories. You set your price; the platform gets a 20 percent commission when your item sells. In addition, the company processes returns and supplies a free shipping kit.

VarageSale

VarageSale is an online garage sale designed to help you sell items locally. It verifies buyers and sellers through Facebook before allowing them to participate online.

Moving Help

The chances are that you will still have lots of belongings to move to your new home. We can help with the process. Contact us for free packing and moving quotes.

5 Tips When Planning a Winter Move

Statistics indicate that most people move in the spring, with June being one of the busiest months. Spring and summer moves are popular because of the milder weather and because the busy school year is ending.

However, winter moves can be advantageous for many reasons; sometimes, you can’t avoid them. Roughly 75% of U.S. states will experience winter snow, sleet, or ice. So, If you’re planning a winter move, you’ll need to plan for bad weather proactively. The following tips can help you to experience a safe and more manageable winter move.

1. Plan a Morning Move

In the winter months, daylight is at a premium. Planning a morning move is easier, so you’ve completed the heavy lifting before it gets dark. Nighttime relocations are risky since there is an increased possibility of trips, slips, and falls, especially if ice is present. If some of your relocating occurs during darkness, be sure the home, driveway, and walkways are well-lit, shoveled, and salted.

2. Track Weather Forecasts

As your moving day approaches, watch the weather forecast carefully. If forecasters expect significant snow or ice, contact your mover to ask how things will proceed or to schedule an alternative moving day. Movers want everyone to be safe, so they’ll likely have a 

  1. Arrange for Driveways to Be Clear

On moving day, clear the driveway and walkways of snow and ice if bad weather occurs. Be sure to sand or salt these areas. To reduce stress and save time,hire a professional to do it for you since you might have already packed your equipment for the move. Clearing surfaces of slippery conditions helps keep both you and your movers safe.

4. Protect Your Home’s Interior Areas

In the winter months, it’s impossible to avoid tracking mud, water, salt, and other debris inside. Before you move items in or out of your home, lay down a tarp or pieces of cardboard to protect the floors, especially in areas that have hardwood or carpeted surfaces. Keep a small cleaning kit available for quick clean-up jobs.

5. Ensure New Utilities are On

Before moving, double-check to ensure all utilities, including electricity, water, and internet, are turned on and working. If you don’t have access, ask your realtor or property manager to check into it for you. The last thing you want in the cold season is to arrive at a home with no heat or lighting.

Moving Made Easy

Winter moves have their challenges, but working with a professional moving expert can eliminate the hazards and difficulties. With the experience needed to keep people and possessions safe, connecting with a knowledgeable mover can make your moving day go off without a hitch. To obtain a free quote, contact us today.

5 Things to Consider When Moving to a New Neighborhood

When looking at a new house, apartment, or condo, you’re likely to focus on how well the unit fits into your lifestyle. Is it big enough? Does it have the features and fixtures you want? Is it going to be hard to maintain? But, the area where your new accommodations are is just as important. So, as you’re conducting your home search, you should also pay attention to the neighborhood. 

Here are five things to consider when moving to a new community.

1. Walkability

Some cities are built for walking, while others require cars or public transportation. So if you don’t have anything close by where you can walk (or it’s unsafe to do so), you’ll have to rely on your car or public transportation to do anything. Consider which option fits your lifestyle.

A neighborhood’s walkability score can significantly impact your quality of life. For example, if you can walk to different stores and retailers, you can take care of errands and buy essentials without the hassles of driving. Also, consider whether you want to be able to walk around the neighborhood itself and whether that’s feasible or not. For example, maybe you have dogs or kids, so parks and playgrounds are essential.

2. Schools and Education

This part mostly matters if you have school-age children or if you’re attending school yourself. You can look up nearby institutions, including private and charter schools. Pay attention to what parents and educators are saying about these schools and whether they’re a good fit for your kids. In some cases, you may have to attend the school closest to your residence, but usually, you’ll have at least a few options from which to choose.

3. Urban vs. Suburban Environments

Moving to the suburbs was the ultimate way to own a personal slice of Americana for many years. But, these days, urban living is becoming much more popular because cities have so much to offer. The number of conveniences and experiences might outweigh any negative aspects of the town you are considering.

When deciding between city or suburban life, you’ll need to determine what features are most vital to you. For example, the suburbs may be a good choice if you don’t mind driving everywhere. Alternatively, if you prefer public transportation or the convenience of walking, you likely need to be in or close to the city.

4. Types of Stores/Retail Outlets

Some neighborhoods have everything you need and more. In these cases, you could potentially take care of all your errands and entertainment options without leaving the area. Some essential stores include:

  • Grocery – Do you have multiple grocery options (i.e., big chains and independent stores), and do they sell the items you prefer? How late are they open?
  • Department Store – Wal-Mart and Target are excellent options to buy practically anything you need. You may also be close to a regional department store if you don’t want to shop at a big chain.
  • Gas Stations – Where is the nearest gas station, and how much is it? If you have to go far to fill up your car, you’ll need to plan when you’re out and about.
  • Retailers – If you like to go shopping, are there stores nearby you’d like to visit? Some neighborhoods have a main strip with lots of unique and quirky shops.

5. Safety

Finally, while all areas have crime, some are riskier than others. Therefore, it’s also crucial to look up the primary types of crime in the neighborhood. For example, if car break-ins are common, you might need to park inside a garage or parking lot. Overall, be smart about your area and its potential limitations.
