    (or the small stuff)!!!

    Should I use a moving company?

    This is a question that plagues all people on the move. And like most decisions, the answer is different for everyone depending on numerous factors such as time, money, difficulty, and complexity of the move. If you're moving across town, a self-move may make more sense than if you're moving across the country. Still, to ensure you're making the best decision, it's a good idea to weigh all options. So, before we being to ask ourselves some questions, decide first what your first priority is; money or time or a bit of both. Knowing what the most important factor is will help lead you to a satisfying answer.


    moving tips

    Many consider moving to be one of life's most stressful and least fun events, especially the actual process of getting all your stuff from point A to point B. Once you've made the big decision to pull up stakes and then figure out all those important details such as where you'll work, where you'll live and where the kids will go to school, choosing a mover may just be an afterthought.


    But don't skimp on this last minute detail. Why? While the right moving company can make for a smooth move, choosing the wrong mover can make your relocation a nightmare. Check out the following moving tips so that you can choose the right moving company.

    Do your homework

    Schedule

    Call and schedule your movers ahead of time at least a week or two, especially in the summer and definitely if you are planning to move at the end of the month.

    Throw out the trash

    Get rid of anything and everything that you could live without. Have a garage sale, put your things on Craigslist or eBay. You might make enough money to offset the cost of the move!

    clean up

    Clean your house like your mother in law is coming to visit! Leave no stone unturned. The more clean and organized your home is, the smoother the transition will be. We love and appreciate a home that is free of clutter and allergens.
