There is no doubt that December is one of the busiest months of the year. We love being busy, in fact, we wanted to share with you some things we are excited about.
We assisted Realities for Children on their annual Bikes for Tykes event this year by providing trailers and assisting them in picking up bikes for donors here in Fort Collins. We were so pleased to receive a large thank you poster with wonderful thank you messages all over it from some of the kids who received bikes. We are also excited about our donation move for a Habitat for Humanity family.
We also just completed a complicated large move from Windsor, CO to Texas. It was 25,000lbs of household goods including a pool table that had to be crated. We delivered them on a Sunday so they would not have to miss any work and delivered the entire highly insured load with no damage. Also, we recently assisted Lee Cord (A Group Realtor) and the Larimer Chorale with the receiving, delivery and storage of their new risers. We received a nice card from Lee Cord where he stated, “You have solved a problem for the Larimer Chorale, and you made the purchase of the riders possible for us, thanks again, we will continue to refer customers to Exodus”.
As you can see, December was a busy month for us! We look forward to a busy and successful 2010 and hope to do business with you!
During the Holiday season, your busy schedules probably just got slammed with a number of dinner parties to attend. Attending dinner parties are fun but hosting dinner parties can be fun too! Whether you are having a small get together or many people over for a green celebration, planning does not have to be stressful hopefully this article will ease your list of things to do.
So you’ve decided you’re going to have a dinner party. Next step is figuring out how you’re going to send your invitations. To go green and ease the carbon footprint on getting your attendees attention to save the date, may we suggest using social media? What a quick and easy way to contact your network of friends. Remember, just because its online doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Send your invites a jazzed up email, they will be excited to open it making them even more excited to attend, we like to use Evite.com. Another idea is to suggest a prize for those who arrive by alternative forms of transportation other than by car, but whatever the prize is, make it green and make it good. When you decorate for your party create displays of fresh flowers and candles and get creative with the seasons offerings. Pinecones, lemons, leaves, and oranges are all things found in or around your house that can add to the fall season and add to the mood of a comfortable environment. Don’t forget to invest in some ‘green wine’ no, the color of the wine is not green but you can compliment any dish by supporting an ecologically sensitive winery. Or, you can have green drinks by supporting a local micro brewery, such as New Belgium Brewery, O’Dell’s Brewery and Fort Collins Brewery. When shopping for your dinner party, don’t forget about the after dinner coffee which you can go green by supporting fair trade. If there are leftovers, send everyone home with whatever is left, or compost your scraps for your garden. You should always seek out green household cleaning products because they are good for your health and good for the environment too.
As you can see these are quick easy steps to plan for your green Holiday celebration. All of these things are easy on your wallet; health and the environment too, have fun and stay green this holiday season.
At Exodus what matters most to us YOU! When we say YOU we really do mean you. You don’t have to be someone needing assistance in moving or help acquiring a storage unity, you are important to us because we are all a part of the same community.
We value our community in Northern Colorado more than a lot of moving companies you will find. Here at Exodus, we make the public our top priority in doing business. We also work hard to build and maintain a reputation that is admirable for the Northern Colorado community and we hope to live up to all the expectations that we have set for ourselves.
We also support locally owned businesses and events that are taking place in Northern Colorado and will do our best to help you out. Let us know how we can help spread the word about your business, organization, and charity by following us on Twitter @ExodusMoving.
Exodus often contributes to non-profit organizations by donating our white glove moving services. Now more than ever, we encourage you this Holiday Season to give back to your community. Wherever you are, whatever you do, you can help someone or something in such a small way that makes such a big difference!
Let’s put it this way, you scratch our back and we’ll scratch yours. Let’s work hand in hand this Holiday Season and even ring in the year 2010 by supporting local businesses, organization, charities.
“We can begin by doing small things at the local level, like planting community gardens or looking out for neighbors. That is how change takes place in living systems, not from above but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously”
– Grace Lee Boggs
If your leaving town for the Holidays there are a few precautions you should take in order to keep your home safe and sound.
Remember to stop your mail and newspaper service before you leave town. Nothing screams “no one is home” like a week’s worth of mail or newspapers stacked in your front yard for the world to see.
It’s really important to remember to NEVER write “take all deliveries to the next door neighbor” hopefully, you understand why.
Trim any overgrown, trees, shrubs or bushes because that is a safe zone for any buglers to hide out.
Don’t change your answering machine to suggest that no one is home, for example, it’s probably not a good idea to say, “Hello, you’ve reached so and so, we are in the Bahamas until the 28th”. That’s ear candy for anyone with sticky fingers.
Also, now that we are living in this day in age where technology allows us to engage in constant conversation, be careful what you post on social networking sites like Facebook and/or Twitter. You never know who is reading your posts and you’d rather be safe than sorry.
Pull all the plugs out of the walls, this will help save energy and cut back on your bills but also it reduces any chance of fire hazards.
Remove the spare key from under the rug and give it to a neighbor. You could bribe them by some freshly baked cookies to check on your house periodically.
Move valuables away from doors and windows for various reasons.
Use timers on many lights found throughout the house so it may appear that people are home.
We don’t mean to scare you while you are away on a luxurious vacation but we do think it is imperative for any travelers to take these safety precautions so you can arrive at a safe and sound home.
“They” say it takes around a year to a year and a half to meet people in a new community that you can truly call a friend. Depending on where you move, it can take longer than that. Here are some tips to make it easier, and quicker!
Chamber of Commerce: Never rule out the chamber, even if you aren’t a business owner. Your local chamber can connect you to businesses you need, events to attend, and new people to meet that can make you feel at home. Check out Chambers of Commerce, USA Directory and Visitor Bureaus US Directory.
Another great way to meet people and get familiar with your new community is through Livability.com “Livability.com is an online portal connecting people seeking relocation information with some of the most livable communities in the United States.” This website is made for people relocating. They also include local food and a digital newsstand. What a wonderful resource for people moving!
Last but not least, don’t forget about using social media! Twitter and Facebook have features where you can search by city and state. Use Facebook search bar, and for Twitter use Twellowhood.com
Here at Exodus, we hope you make new friends quickly, and start feeling more and more at home!
