Consider leaving unneeded apparel and paperwork when you move

Consider leaving unneeded apparel and paperwork when you move
July 01, 2014

Many people spend their entire lives living in one place. They are born into a community and choose to stay, and often times, they never get the opportunity to explore what else is out there. For other people, moving is an exciting experience that, when properly organized, can be done efficiently. However, for any successful relocation, people need to consult with home moving companies that have years of experience in helping people transition across state lines.

Stevens Worldwide Van Lines has over 100 years of experience in nationwide moving, and the moving company’s professional relocation movers can help people enjoy the transition by providing advice every step of the way.

What many families fail to realize is that the most critical part of any move is remembering to shop around for the best deal. It is important to get an in-house quote based on a review of the contents in an apartment or home. People who accept phone estimates may be unsatisfied at the end of the process as the services they received weren’t up to standards, and these types of quotes are illegal when moving across state lines. Consulting with Stevens can help people make sure their transitions are done within legal boundaries and ensure that they meet specific moving standards.

When gearing up for a big move, people should be careful not to get distracted by the sheer amount of possessions they own. Starting in advance, and taking the time to get rid of unnecessary belongings, can help the movers sort through boxes effectively to make sure what is being moved is essential.

In order to get rid of unneeded goods, many people set up partnerships with charities. When packing up clothing, there are often articles that haven’t been worn in years. It is not always necessary to bring those items to a new community, but a local nonprofit would greatly appreciate the donation. In addition to perusing through clothing, people often file through their personal documents that they’ve compiled over years. Bringing along documents from several years ago can take up much-needed space in a new home, but taking the proper measures when disposing of private documents is advised, in order to guard against identity theft and other security issues.

Moving to a new home is an exciting adventure that is best done with a partner like Stevens. The moving company can help families enjoy a seamless transition to a new community and home.

Don’t forget to make measurements when you’re doing some long distance moving

July 29, 2014

Knowing the dimensions of your new home is very important, especially when you’ve hired a moving and relocation company. If certain items don’t fit into the places that you’ve chosen for them, you’ll have had a company help you move them for no reason. It also makes it very difficult to save money by avoiding appliance purchases.

One troublesome area to take into account is the kitchen. No matter how big your new one is, you might find that it’s hard to fit certain appliances into the spaces that were created for them. Refrigerators are particularly hard to shimmy into spots that weren’t built around them, so if you have a beloved model you want to take with you, find out what its dimensions are before nationwide movers put it on their truck.

You should also figure out how big stairwells are. They might look big enough to accommodate bed frames or cabinets, but there are fewer worse feelings than having to abandon a piece of furniture and buy a new one because the angles in a staircase won’t allow it to fit.
