When should you get moving?

Whether you are moving down the street or across the country, picking the right time to do it can simplify your process. The question is: When is the best time to move your home? Today we will be addressing this question so that you can enjoy a smooth and simple moving process. Let’s get started.

Move your home during the off-season.

The most simple way to choose a time to move is to pick a time when other homeowners aren’t moving. January and other traditionally cold months tend to be unpopular for moving not only due to the weather, but according to the school schedule as well. Summer and Spring are the most popular times of year to move, so if you can avoid them, you should consider it.

Move your home in the middle of the month.

Leases tend to be signed and dated for the first of the month or sometime in the last week. Thism akes the middle of the month a great time to move your home. Most people simply aren’t moving then. You should also consider the time of day you move. An early start is often the best choice so that you have plenty of time to get settled and to accommodate any missteps along the way.

Why pay attention to the time you move your home?

Why can’t you just hop in the truck and set off? Well, you can. What you have to take into account is the possibility of not getting the appointment time you want. You have to take into account the fact that the moving company you want to work with may not be able to accommodate you if you’re moving during a busy period. Consider the road less traveled and you can move in peace.

In fact, if you think a few steps ahead of yourself, you ensure that every moment of the process is smooth and simple. However, there are many things to remember during the hectic adventure of getting all your items from one place to the next. That’s why we’re here to talk about some of the things that are forgotten on moving day. Let’s take a look.

Don’t Procrastinate on Heavy or Fragile Items

It’s completely natural to want to save the most difficult moving projects for last, but the fact of the matter is that you cannot avoid that antique armoire forever. In fact, you should go ahead and tackle it early so that you’re not rushing to solve what could become a complex problem at the last minute. Of course, the simplest solution to any fragile or heavy items is to hire a team of trusted professionals to handle them for you.

Don’t Forget That Moving Takes Time and Space

Even if everything is on the truck and you arrive in a timely fashion to your new location, this new location may be congested with other traffic. You need to ensure that you will be able to get the moving truck comfortably to your new home with ample time to actually move everything inside without losing valuable day light. Again, the easiest way to deal with this issue is to hire a team of professionals to think ahead for you.

Don’t Worry About All the Food in Your Fridge

One of the things that people forget about during the moving process is all the food that they have in their house. Now, some things can be boxed and sent on, of course, but a lot of it cannot. Rather than throwing it all away, you may consider donating it to neighbors or reputable food drives. You could also throw a last minute party with some of your friends with the intention of eating as much as possible. That way, you can get rid of a lot of food and not have to waste it all!

Storage is a fantastic option for valuables that you can’t take with you.

When you move into a new home or office be it close by or in another state, you should take some time to consider whether or not you want all of your items to travel with you. Sometimes slimming down your possessions is the right choice, but you have some options in terms of how permanent that is. What we mean by this is that you have three choices: You can take the items with you, you can get rid of them entirely, or you can utilize the wonders of a storage facility. Today we’re going to be giving you some things to think about to help you make the right choice for you. Let’s get started!

Get rid of the items you don’t need first.

The first thing you should do when moving is consider what you don’t need to bring with you or even keep at all. Old pieces of furniture that you don’t use, broken items, old clothing you don’t wear, and other items of that nature, should be let go of. You’re moving into a new house and a new chapter of your life, so go ahead and free yourself of the things you don’t need.

Store the items you love, but can’t take with you.

There will be things that you want to keep that you simply can’t take with you. The items might not fit into your new rooms or they simply won’t match. If you find yourself with items like this, then you can take advantage of storage. We have climate controlled, secured storage spaces that will keep your items safe until you’re ready to take them back.

Take your items with you if you need them.

The items that you take with you to your new house should be the ones you deem essential to your living environment. Things that you use on a regular basis should definitely be available to you. These are the items we will help you move from your current house into your new one.

Moving from state to state? We can help!

Moving down the street can be a challenge, but moving to another state? That can certainly feel like you’re setting yourself up to run the gauntlet. But, whether you are moving for personal, professional, or circumstantial reasons, you can ease your moving burden with the following preparations.

Make a calendar and get organized!

One of the best ways to prepare for any move, big or small, is to create a timeline of how you’re going to get from point A to point B. In your calendar, you should include every possible task that you may have to complete. You should then prioritize your most important, deadline-oriented tasks and place them on the calendar with ample time to get them done. By making a calendar, you can relax knowing that everything that needs to get done will get done because you’ve already planned it. Additionally, you should give yourself some extra days with nothing planned in case one of your tasks takes longer than you anticipate. Or, you can use your free days to relax. After all, planning a move from one state to another is hard work.

Set up a budget and stick to it.

Moving into a new state can be financially challenging as well as practically challenging. You might be switching jobs during this time. Something that will help you stay in the green financially speaking will be a predetermined budget. Take note that having state to state movers assist you is going to help a lot with staying on budget.

Cleanse your home of things that you don’t need.

Letting go of unwanted or old items is always going to help make your move across state lines far more manageable. After all, you will have fewer things to move. Check out our blog on decluttering your life for a deeper look into how you can do this effectively.

Hire state to state movers that you can trust!

At the end of the day the single most helpful thing that you can do to make your move easier is to call on movers that you can trust. Tristate Moving and Storage is here for all of your moving and storage needs!

Sometimes you just don’t need more than one toaster.

How often do you really go through all of your things? Those boxes in storage or the back of your closet probably aren’t remembered, much less examined, more than once a year. As you prepare to move, you may consider finally relieving yourself of the burden of clutter. Today we’re going to be going over the benefits of cleansing your belongings and how to go about it effectively. Let’s get started!

Why should you take the time to declutter your life?

Moving is often a large undertaking, so cutting down on the number of items that you have is only going to help you. Furthermore, you might be able to make a little money off of the items you get rid of depending on what they are. Not only that, but letting go of some of your older items will allow you to make room for new ones. After all, is that old sofa really pulling that room together? It’s time to let it go and find one that does! If your new home doesn’t have as much space as your old one, then getting rid of some of your items may be more than simply beneficial; it may be necessary.

How should you approach the decluttering process?

The best way to go about decluttering your home is to take it room by room. You should start in each room with the largest items and work your way down to the smaller ones. Sort your items into multiple groups including, but not limited to, what you want to keep, what you want to sell, and what you want to donate. Once you have everything sorted, you’ll be ready to unload your items into their appropriate places whether that is your new home or someone else’s. Once you’ve cleared out old items, it will be time to move and for that, you can call on us! We’re happy to help!

How can you prepare to move into a new house?

Moving is often an involved event between packing everything up and making any last minute adjustments. You’ll need to ensure that your items get to your new home safely, of course, but that’s why you’ve called on us at Tristate! However, there is more to moving that the literal moving of your items. Here are a few things that you should take care of before you move to ensure a smooth process. Let’s take a look.

Make sure your new home is ready for you.

Before you can settle into your new house, you should take some time to ensure that it is ready to be settled into. This can include things like cleaning the home, checking on the electrical and plumbing facilities, and looking for any potential problems. If you notice pests, call a pest control specialist before any of your clothing or furnishings arrive. You should also have the locks changed just in case.

Let everyone know that you are moving.

As simple as it is, you would be surprised how many people forget to inform the people in their lives that they are moving. We are, of course, talking more about billing and services than friends, but everyone should be informed. Make sure your internet, television, and phone providers know that you are changing addresses so that you can get everything hooked up in your new home in advance.

Acquaint yourself with your new home.

Take some time to plan out where you are going to put your things in your new space. Designate each room for its purpose and try to envision how everything is going to work together. You should also locate the circuit breaker box and the main water valve. You never know when you are going to need those, so it is best to prepare in advance. Furthermore, you should try and find out whether or not the basement floods and then attempt to rectify any issue in advance. We at Tristate will handle the actual moving.

When you work with professionals, you can count on quality.

Whether you are moving from one home to another, or taking your business to a new location, hiring a professional moving company is the right decision. You don’t want to arrive in your new office or home only to find that your items didn’t arrive with you, or that they arrived damaged. You want to arrive in your new location knowing that your furniture, electronics, and other delicate items have been taken care of. Today we’re going to walk you through some of the reasons why you need a professional moving company on your side. Let’s take a look.

Professional movers will handle your items with care.

Moving is often a large undertaking and you have enough to worry about in terms of changing addresses and making sure that you’ve covered all other bases. Though you may think it will be cheaper to hire a few unlicensed laborers to move your items, you may find that this is not true. Non-professionals do not have the knowledge and care required to ensure that your furniture pieces and boxes are handled with care on their way to the next destination. Without the help of professionals, you may find yourself spending more money on replacing items that were damaged or broken. A professional moving company will make sure that all items are handled with care and that they are placed into the correct rooms upon arrival to the new location. This will save you time when you start unpacking because everything will be where it should be. Not only that, but our professionals are experts at disassembling and reassembling a wide variety of furniture pieces. When you work with moving professionals, you can walk into your new home or facility and get started much faster.

We understand the intimacy of our presence and we are dedicated to your safety and comfort. Our job is to make your life easier and a professional moving company, we take that job very seriously.
