How to Take the Stress Out of Moving

It is many peoples least favorite thing to do, but moving is inevitable for most. From uprooting the kids, turning off utilities, packing moving boxes, and hiring a mover, moving is more than simply stressful it is borderline traumatic. Moving is considered one of the top three most stressful life transitions. It is a challenging and difficult experience for a family, especially for children. Most feel that they could and should move their belongings themselves. When many individuals think of moving, many think of all of the work that they will have to do; however, it is also important to think about the cost of moving. The key to moving is trying to do it as efficiently as possible. Of course, moving day is not packing day. There is certainly more to moving than packing and unpacking your things. Keep in mind that if you decide to take more items or take fewer items the total cost of your move will change. You certainly donít want to pay to move items you no longer need. If you are interested in making a few extra dollars before you move, you could have a yard sale. Start packing and labeling boxes as soon as possible. Also, pack valuables such as jewelry, coin collections and stock certificates separately and keep them with you. Your mover can provide boxes most suited for moving, including special-purpose containers for items like your hanging clothes and lamp shades. If using a mover, obtain estimates from at least three professional moving companies as well as recommendations from friends before making your selection. Choose companies that have been around for at least ten years. Any reputable mover will provide you with a written estimate of moving expenses and services. This can save you lots of money as moving companies are prevented by law from outrageously jacking up the bill at delivery when they have already given you a written estimate at the point of origin with a physical inspection. You should have chosen your final choice of moving company at least 4 to 8 weeks in advance. Let the mover know how much packing you will be doing. Of course the more flexible you are, the less the cost will be. Once you've selected a mover, be sure to confirm the move dates and details. Generally, any loss during transit is the loss of the company and they reimburse it. If you are moving to a different state, check to make sure the mover is licensed by the Federal Department of Transportation. Ask the mover how they can be contacted before the move, during the move, and after the move. Here are a few moving tips to help you out. Draw up a floor plan of where you think your furniture should be placed. Check personal insurance policies to see whether moving is covered. Get valuables out of your safe deposit box. Last minute decisions must be made by you so do not leave until after the movers have gone

Self Storage For Business


When your business grows, and your office space starts filling up with more boxes than employees, you want to consider self-storage. Self-storage for your business is also good when you want to safeguard your businessí documents, archives, and other items in a secure and cost efficient location. If you run a business and are considering self-storage, you should also know that several storage facilities offer more benefits for businesses than just storage. Many now offer conference rooms, offices, postal facilities and even showers.

Many storage facilities offer not just 24-hour service but allow you to modify your unit for your self-storage business needs. Ask your storage company if they provide special accommodations for businesses, such as forklifts for heavy lifting, dumpsters, climate control options, and personnel assistance. There are many storage facilities that offer special corporate discounts, so you should ask if your company qualifies for this discount and what the terms are for reductions in cost. You may also want to ask about corporate accounts.

Security is extremely important, so when your business wants to use self-storage, ask the storage company what kind of security measures they have in place, not just for the entire facility but for your unit. Ask how your unit(s) is secured. Ask the storage company if you will be the only one to have access to your unit and what the procedures are if you want a representative to access your storage unit. You should also ask about insurance. If the storage company does not offer storage insurance that meets your needs, there are outside storage insurance companies that will cover your needs. Many storage facilities will be able to give you recommendations for reputable and dependable storage insurance companies.

Self-storage is a safe and cost efficient way for your business to store your companyís documents, archives, and anything in between.
