Should I Move in The Rain?

Should I Move in The Rain?

The day of your move is here and the dreaded rain clouds are above your house.  Should you cancel or continue your move?  This is usually a personal preference and varies with each customer.  There are a few things to take into account before making your decision.

First, does the moving company you hire have blankets or bubble wrap to guard your furniture?  When you have antiques and valuables the day of your move make sure you notify your movers.  The outcome is usually the same with or without the rain clouds, but when in doubt always stay on the cautious side.

Secondly, do the movers have things to put down on your floors to protect your hardwoods, carpet, tile, etc?  You want to make your moving day as stress free as possible; so make sure you don’t have the hassle  of cleaning up a huge mess when the movers leave due to the weather.

Are you moving somewhere that is slick?  If you answered yes then it might be time to consider another move date.  Call your moving company as soon as you know that you want to change the date and they usually will understand and work with you.  If they don’t then you might have chosen the wrong company and might want to hire a different company for your move.

*Tip – Don’t ride with your convertible top down in the rain (This one is for me)!

Moving Announcements

Moving Announcements

There are so many things to consider when moving that some important things, such as notifying your friends and family of your address change, may be overlooked.   Why not make something that might be a chore into something fun for you or your family to do?

First, make a list of friends and family you will need to send your moving announcements to so you will know how many to make or purchase.

Next, you will need to decide what type of announcement you want to send out.  You can be as creative as you would like to be with this.  Once you have your cards picked out or made start an assembly line so that you can be efficient and have fun while addressing, stamping, etc.

Then all you need to do is drop them in the mail and you have one less thing to worry about on moving day!

Looking to Move? Here are a few tips to consider:

So last week we talked about the moving season starting it’s engine!  The first step to moving is to scout out a new place.  Today we are going to give you somethings to think about before taking the plunge (whether your signing a lease or a mortgage).

First, make sure that you like the location the potential residence.  If you have children make sure that it is in a good school district.  Even if you send them to private right now you may need to put them into public later and it is better to be safe.

Second, make sure that you like the community that you are moving into.  This is especially important if you have children and/or like to be highly involved.    A good way to meet new people when moving to different cities or states is by joining local clubs.

If you want to fix up the house you are moving into – make sure that what you want to put into the renovations will not make you higher than the comps in that area.  This applies most of the time; unless you want to stay at that house for the duration.

We hope that this helped and as always we hope that your move is successful and a happy one!

*Green Tip – caulk around your windows to give them better insulation.
