Ways to Retire On the Cheap

If you’re moving to Fort Collins in order to retire, you’ve picked a really good place to do it. Moving to Fort Collins means living in a great city that’s bursting with things to do. But, what if you haven’t saved up a ton of money for retirement?

The first thing that you should know is you’re far from alone. Most Americans do not have a substantial amount of money saved for that rainy day. The second thing to note is that you can retire without a massive nest egg, you just have to do some things a bit differently.

Moving to Fort Collins is a great first step – here are some more that will make retiring easier.

A lot of retirees seek greener and cheaper pastures elsewhere in the world. If you find that affording retired life is hard in the U.S., you may want to think about hiring a long distance moving company (like Exodus!) to help you move to a cheaper part of the world. In many places, life is simply less expensive, and this might be worth looking into.

Move to a cheaper state. If you’re looking to get out of an expensive city, look to those states that are considered less expensive (like Colorado). Other states to consider include New Hampshire, Vermont, and Utah, and Wyoming. The idea here is to find a place where your dollar goes much further, and that includes hiring an affordable long distance moving company.

Cut back on the amount that you owe. This could mean moving to a smaller home with a smaller mortgage, but it also means getting rid of any credit card or other debt. Getting a bank loan with a low interest rate might be a good idea to help you eliminate credit card debt, and simply trying to live a more minimalist life might also help.

Skip buying anything new. Now is not the time to buy a new car or any other big ticket items that will cost a lot. If you need something like a car, try buying a used vehicle. You’ll quickly see that new things really aren’t as important as they seem, and buying used means helping out the environment too through recycling things like clothes and other items.

Think about picking up some contract work. It might not be possible to extend the time that you work at your currrent job, think about ways that you can contract or work for yourself. If you’ve been in a particular business or industry for a number of years, there’s a good chance that you have some solid skills, right? Use those skills to sell your services to other people, or find ways to pick up some side work.

Do things to stay in good health. This may not seem like a “how to live on a budget” retirement tip, but staying healthy means being able to work and live longer. You can’t really extend a career if you aren’t healthy, right? So try to stay in shape by working out, eating right, and being mindful of what you can and can’t do.

When you do move, hire an affordable moving company. If moving to a smaller home or different part of the world is in your plans, make sure that you aren’t paying an arm and a leg for a moving company to help you with that move. It’s hard to find a reliable moving company, but that’s what our reputation is built on, so give us a call today to see what we can do for you. Or, find us on Facebook!

Before You Move Off Campus…

Moving out of a dorm and into an off campus home might seem like the best thing ever – finally, freedom! But, there are a few things to consider before you ditch the single wooden bed, small room, and undesirable roommates. As one of the top Denver moving companies, believe us when we say that there are more than a few things to look out for before you move off campus – take a look!

  • Know your tenant rights. Every city is different, but some landlords will take full advantage of students that have never lived in a rented space before. It’s really up to you to know what your rights are, and what you do and don’t have to put up with. Find out this information before you move.
  • Read the lease carefully. Once you get into a lease agreement, it can be really tough to get out of that agreement. So, make sure to go over the fine print – and keep a copy of your lease on hand, just in case.
  • Take good notes when you move into a space. Pay attention to small details like any kind of obvious or not obvious damage, what is included in the rent (and how it looks when you move in), and what is missing. Later, you may need those documents and photos in order to prove that a place was as you left it.
  • Find out what happens to your deposit. You should get your deposit back when you move out if everything is in good shape when you do so. Make sure that this agreement is in writing.
  • Be certain that the dwelling is safe and secure. Look carefully at locks, door combinations, and other security details. Find out when the chimney was last swept, what kind of fire alarm you have (and if it works), and how much crime is in the building. Sometimes, it’s better to avoid those student filled buildings and move into a place that’s filled more with families or couples – this way, you are targeted by thieves, as students tend to be.
  • Get the phone number and address of your landlord. If you have to send something in writing, you’ll have to send it to a direct address. You may also have to call a landlord when you need help, so do have all of those details on hand. Be wary of any landlord that doesn’t want to give you some kind of contact information.
  • Know what is required of you, and when it is required. Make sure that you pay your bills, it’s that simple. Do not send in rent late, and do not skip payments – though it can be tempting! Make sure that all tenants pull their part, too, since some might skip rent, and this could mess everything up for all people living in a rental apartment.
  • Lastly, find out how you will pay your energy bill – some buildings split this cost between apartments, and this is information that you need to know!

Calling Denver Moving Companies

Reaching out and calling Denver moving companies to help you move into a new place is a good idea – a company like Exodus will make sure that your stuff gets to your new place without any kind of damage or harm. Moving companies in Fort Collins are pretty well versed on moving students in and out of dorm areas, too, so go ahead and ask the moving companies in Fort Collins that you find about this type of experience.

At Exodus Moving and Storage, we’re more than happy to help you move to a new home! If you’ve found great roommates and a great rental space, we’ll help you get there with all of your stuff in one piece. Call us today for details, or leave us a note on this blog.

Need Help Remodeling? Pick an App!

While you are in the process of moving to Fort Collins, one  of the things that you may have to do is remodel the home you are moving into. Whether you’ve found a house or an apartment, moving to Fort Collins often means setting things up in your new place the way that you want them. This process can be tricky and time consuming, but some new home improvement apps are looking to change the way that you remodel or make over your home.

The New Apps

A Reuters report indicates that Americans spent nearly $130 billion in home remodeling projects last year alone. That means there’s a huge market for people that are moving to Fort Collins, or elsewhere, and want to change the way that things are inside of their home before the big move. It also means that Americans spend time and money remodeling an existing home. There are many reasons why remodeling is a good idea, but finding the right expert to install a washer or dryer or to fix the concrete around an outdoor area can be hard.

There’s a new app called Sweeten that aims to make this process simpler by connecting homeowners and renters with professionals like contractors and designers. People that use the Sweeten app (currently available in New York City, but expanding all over the United States soon) can post photos of a home improvement project, and Sweeten will find the right expert for the project.

In order to ensure that the right professionals are on the job, the company behind Sweeten monitors every project, and makes sure that all projects are completely well and on time. Homeowners that use Sweeten can leave feedback about a specific professional, so that others know how the project went.

Additional Home Improvement Apps

Sweeten is the newest home improvement app, but it’s far from the only one. Home improvement  apps make it a lot simpler to find what you need for your home, find a professional, or simply get ideas about things that you can do to make your home or apartment better. It’s also a good idea to look at websites like Apartment Therapy if you are considering moving into an apartment, and you need ideas on how to make that place better or just different.

While moving to a new home used to mean getting renovation recommendations from family members and friends (and that can still work, though it’s good to have some other opinions!), finding what you need for a new place is easier than ever thanks to the world of technology. Most people don’t think of app when they think of home improvement, though there are many apps that can help you with everything from finding a contractor to measuring spaces (yes, there’s an app for that too!).

So, the next time that you are searching for residential moving companies and getting ready to move, think about turning to technology instead of looking for information elsewhere.

Bob Marley Knows How to Move (To The Top)

Have you seen the hashtag #getupstandup lately? The tag was created by the Bob Marley family, and it’s purpose is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s ‘Legend’ album. Since we love anything that has to do with moving at Exodus Moving and Storage – and we dare you not to move when you listen to this song – we thought that we’d share the amazing response that the Marley family got to the creative #getupstandup hashtag.

The Tag Turnout

Bob Marley fans from around the world used the hashtag to showcase pictures of peace, protest, and other moments in time. The Marley family then took all of those photos, pieced them together, and created a YouTube video featuring the lyrics to Marley’s famous song in addition to the photos that were posted. The result of this montage is a new video for the old song that sings to today’s most important causes.

The video is both a moving tribute to Bob Marley and to today’s important reasons to get up and stand up. Fans wrote out various sections of Marley’s famous lyrics, and posted those lyrics on Instagram for the family to see. If you have the time, and you want to get up and stand up, take a look at the YouTube video.

Some Amazing Facts

Even though Bob Marley’s album ‘Legend’ was created back in 1984, the songs from that particular album have been popular around the world since the album was created. This week, that album rose to the top of the Billboard charts for the first time in thirty-eight years. The rise was in part due to a push by Google Play. Google was selling the album for ninety-nine cents this week in order to commemorate the anniversary.

It’s pretty hard to find someone that hasn’t heard at least one Bob Marley song, and chances are that the song they have heard came from the Legend album. There aren’t a lot of musicians that can boast the same kind of worldwide fame – especially considering how long Bob Marley has been dead. So, why is this singer so popular?

The Marley Magic

Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy, is partly responsible for the constant popularity of Bob’s music. Ziggy has been working to promote his father’s legend since the death of Bob Marley in 1981. But, Ziggy isn’t solely responsible for Marley’s popularity. Bob Marley songs give people a reason to, well, get up and stand up. It’s hard not to tap your feet to a Marley tune, and those that hear the reggae beats for the first time have a hard time not wanting more, in most cases.

As evidenced by the new YouTube video, people are still willing to stand behind Bob Marley, and to fight for what they believe in. Even if you didn’t take part in the #getupstandup hashtag campaign, you can still enjoy Bob Marley’s tunes – in fact, Marley often makes the top “best music to move to” lists. So, we recommend popping in some Bob Marley while you cruise to your new home or pack up those boxes. If you need some inspiration, just take a look at the YouTube video mentioned above – you’ll be up and packing fragile things in no time!

Getting Ready to Move

When it comes to choosing Denver moving companies to move your things from your current location to a new one, make sure to choose those Denver moving companies that you can trust. Take a look around our website for information about what we offer, and for help with moving and packing. As one of the top Denver moving companies, we are also happy to offer storage spaces for rent in both Denver and Fort Collins – just in case you can’t take everything with you to your new location.

Exodus Moving and Storage is also a long distance moving company, so make sure to ask us about our rates when it comes to moving a long way. Whether you are in search of a long distance moving company, or a short distance moving company, our goal is to help you move to your new home with as little stress as possible. Feel free to call us for a free quote, or ask us any question that you have on Facebook.

In the meantime, let us know: what Bob Marley song gets you up and moving?

The Kids Are Moving to College: Now What?

If your kids are moving to Fort Collins to attend college or anywhere else in the world, you may be feeling sad and full of anxious feelings. Relax, these feelings are perfectly normal! Plus, there are things that you can do before your kids leave to feel better about the whole move.

Here’s some help from Exodus Moving and Storage when it comes to facing an empty home for the first time.

1. Book some time with your child: spend some time alone with your kid prior to the big college move. If you don’t have any time before the move, book a family vacation or other event during a holiday when your child will return home – maybe a thanksgiving vacation is in order this year!

2. Make sure that your child spends an adequate amount of time with his or her siblings too. If your kids will be separated for a year, it’s important that they get quality time with each other.

3. Consider purchasing a special gift for your grad. Going away to college is a hard thing to do, and your child will feel isolated and lonely at first. Buying him or her something cozy and warm to remember you by is a really good way to make them feel secure, even when they are far away.

4. Prepare yourself for some quiet and free time. It may be a good idea to sign up for a few classes, find some things to do, and occupy your time now that your home will be relatively empty.

5. Spend some time with your partner. If you are married, look ahead to the days without your child as an opportunity to date your husband or wife, and to have some fun. If you’re not married, now you will have the time to date someone new, or explore the dating scene a bit.

6. Get a hobby. Find something that you love to do and start doing that thing. Otherwise, the days will seem endless and stretch on without something to occupy your time.

7. Connect with other parents: it helps to speak to other people going through the same thing!

Preparing Your Child for College Life

Before moving to Fort Collins or any other place, your child should have some basic life skills. Things like teaching your kid how to do the laundry, use a bank machine, and cook some meals are all important and essential. Otherwise, your child will be lost – but, then again, you’re just a phone call away, so make sure that your child knows you are never too far away.

If you are trying to prepare your child for moving to Fort Collins or anywhere else, consider hiring movers to help. As Loveland movers, Exodus Moving and Storage has moved plenty of college students to many different areas, and we’re happy to be your Loveland Movers too. Call Exodus Moving and Storage today for a free quote, or for additional information about how we can help your child move to his or her new college home.

 

How to Avoid the Freshman 15

If you’re moving to Fort Collins to attend college, you’ve probably heard of the legendary “Freshman 15.” The sad truth is that those fifteen pounds are very real, and you will probably gain a bit of weight when you do move into your dorm room for the first time. But, there are some ways to avoid gaining those fifteen pounds too. Here are a few tips to live by before moving to Fort Collins!

University of Central Arkansas

1. Use the free gym. Most schools have a free gym that’s available to all students, and most Freshman never go to that gym! But, making sure that you workout three to four times per week will help you keep those pounds down – and you never know who you’ll meet while running on the treadmill!

2. Sign up for a class in town. Moving to Fort Collins means having a ton of different exercise and yoga class options at your fingertips. Get a membership at a class in town, and spend some time mellowing out while exercising.

3. Skip the late night eats. This one will be really hard to do because it’s fairly unavoidable to skip going for late night food – your friends will want to do it, and so will you. Late night munchies are a right of any college student, but try and make some healthier choice (no, pizza and chicken fingers aren’t a healthy choice!).

4. Stick with drinks that are low in calories, and don’t consume a ton of those low-calorie drinks. Beer probably isn’t the best thing to drink if you’re watching your weight, so find out what is.

5. Try to eat whole and real foods whenever you can. Eating at the dining hall means eating a lot of processed food. Look for vegetable sticks, hit up that salad bar (skip the dressing), and stock up on protein bars that you can use as meal replacers.

6. Get a blender and a freezer. Sometimes, all you really need is a healthy smoothie or protein shake. A blender and a freezer will do the trick.

7. Learn to run. Grab your phone, an armband, and your running shoes, and hit the roads around your school. Just going for a few runs per week will help you keep those pounds off.

8. Stay active. If you were active in high school, stay active by joining a team at your college – even if it’s not a really good team or an official team, you can still join and run around a bit.

9. Be conscious of what you’re consuming. If you plan to go out at night, eat lighter meals during the day, hit the gym, and get in a run.

10. Get enough sleep. Did you know that not sleeping enough can contribute to weight gain? It might be hard to get enough sleep when your schedule is so packed, but try and get your beauty rest every night – your body will thank you.

Help From Your Boulder Moving Company

Another thing that can contribute to weight gain is stress. Your classes and social life will be stressful enough, so don’t add in a difficult move on top of that stress. If you need help bringing anything from your old home to your new dorm room, call us today. As a Boulder moving company, we can help you move anything you have to your new college campus.

You can also follow us on Facebook for more tips from your Boulder moving company – we look forward to being social with you!

Where To Find Free Stuff

Moving companies in Fort Collins (like Exodus) have seen a lot of things over the years. One of the recurring things that we’ve seen is college students going to school for the first time, or going back to school at the end of the summer. While outfitting a door room with new things can be a lot of fun (who doesn’t like new stuff?), you can also find a ton of things for free if you look at the right websites (and, hey, free stuff is better, right?). If you’re heading back to college this fall, take a look at the following sites, and see if you can get that coffee table or bookshelf for free.

1. Craigslist: this might be one of the original websites to offer free stuff. Look for your town, check out the free section, and see if there’s anything in your town that you may want to bring with you to your dorm this year – you can find everything from books to furniture.

2. eBay Classified section: have you ever looked at the eBay Classifieds? No? Well, it’s time to take a moment or two to see what eBay has to offer. The Classified section of eBay has a ton of stuff that you can simply have for free, and some more stuff that can be had for a lot less than what you would pay in a store.

3. Freecycle sites: it’s really not eco-friendly to keep buying new things. Most of what we buy will end up in the trash anyway, so why not simply purchase used items from people that no longer want those things? You can also find free stuff on these sites. Just Google the name of your town plus the term “freecycle,” and you’ll find lots of things.

4. Facebook yard sale pages: look for a Facebook garage sale or yard sale group in your town. The idea here is a virtual yard sale where people go to post photos and descriptions of items that they are selling, or are giving away for free.

5. Use other social networking sites: put out a post or two about certain items that you are looking for, use tags, and see if someone in your area can help you out – you never know, a friend of yours might have the very thing you need for free.

Buy Used If Possible

Moving companies in Fort Collins can move free, used, or new items to your new home or dorm room, so there’s no need to buy completely new stuff if you can buy used! Plus, buying used items means helping the environment out, and since the environment is important to everyone on the planet, it’s a really good idea to do your part when you can. The other reason why it doesn’t make any sense to buy all new items for your dorm room is that those things will likely be ruined, broken, or left behind by the end of the year – save yourself the trouble of throwing money down the drain by purchasing used things.


If you are looking for moving companies in Fort Collins, give us a try – we’ll help you move everything from that massive fridge to storage bins to your dorm room, even if you are moving far away from Fort Collins. As your Fort Collins movers, Exodus Moving and Storage will provide you with a fair and free quote in addition to efficient moving. We also offer storage room in both Denver and Fort Collins if you need to store some additional items. Call your Fort Collins movers today, and we’ll help you get back to school quickly – with all of your new, used, and free stuff!

Fort Collins Summertime Charity Events

It’s important to give back to your community – after all, it’s your home! If you have just arrived in Fort Collins, we’d like to share some upcoming community charity events with you. All of these events will include plenty of sunshine, fun, and that really good feeling you get when you do something for people in need. Take a look!

  • Old Town Book Fair: this event kicks off on July 11th with the ‘Literary Event Costume Party.’ Dress up like your favorite author or literary character, and enjoy the festivities!
  • Dillon Farmer’s Market: while a farmer’s market isn’t technically a charity event, you are giving to your local farmers by buying goods that they grow. Since many farmers operate small farms, your money will be appreciated – plus, you’ll get all kinds of excellent food! This farmer’s market starts on August 1st and runs every Friday until it gets cold.

  • EFAA Beer and Box Fundraiser on July 23rd. This event is held in Boulder, but it’s worth a stop if you are going to be in Boulder that day. Enjoy beer and food and supporting a local charity while you relax and unwind.
  • Downtown Summer Sessions Concert Series: this event benefits a host of community outreach programs in addition to the city of Fort Collins (cities have to run on funds too!). You’ll find plenty of outdoor concerts are on the program in addition to outdoor food and fun. The Summer Sessions Concert Series begins on July 18th.
  • The Human Race: this road race helps to promote healthy living for kids and teens, and it kicks off on July 26th. Strap on your shoes, and come out to make the world a better and healthier place for kids!

There are a lot more charity events happening this summer in Fort Collins. Make sure to check with local charities to see what’s happening in your part of town, and check out local bulletin boards for additional information about some upcoming events.

The Alternatives to Violence Project

AVP LOGO

IMAGE COURTESY OF AVP

Aggression and violence surround us. Every day, people become angry while driving cars, walking down the street, or just because something didn’t go as planned. ‘The Alternative to Violence Project’ aims to help people deal with aggression and anger that lead to violence by offering group support, workshops, interactive exercises, games, and role-play situations. Exodus Moving and Storage fully supports this community initiative as Fort Collins movers.

What ‘The Alternatives to Violence Project’ Does

This community project was originally started in 1975 order to help violent youths. By connecting those teens with inmates that could explain why violence landed them in jail, the youths that were having trouble with the law began to understand why avoiding aggression and violence is necessary. Currently, the group still works with both inmates and members of the community that need help curbing angry thoughts that lead to aggression.

If you find yourself dealing with anger and aggression that leads to violence, this support group is an excellent resource. If you live in the Fort Collins area, contact the group to see how you can get help. If you don’t live in Fort Collins, you can still learn to calm aggression by following a few tips that will be hard at first, but will eventually result in a much calmer version of you.

Anger Help Tips

1. Take a breath. One of the most important things to do when you find yourself feeling worked up is to take a long and deep breath. More often than not, we forget to breathe when we become agitated, and this leads to aggression.

2. Exercise. You can channel all of that anger and aggression towards something physical. Try an intense bootcamp class or look for a CrossFit gym near you. It’s hard to be angry when you’ve used all of your energy during a tough class.

3. Try meditation and yoga. Even if you think that yoga is not for you, give it a try. We’ve listed a lot of different yoga classes in the Fort Collins and Denver areas on this blog, so check one out. Yoga and meditation work hand in hand to help calm the breath and the body.

4. Go for a walk. If you’re in the middle of a situation that is bound to escalate, simply leave the area and go for a walk. You don’t have to have the last work, and you don’t have to let the situation spin out of control.

5. Consider the consequences. This is where a project like ‘The Alternatives to Violence Project’ is invaluable. Once you hear how anger can lead to very bad consequences from inmates that have been in that situation, you may think twice before letting your anger get out of control. If you can’t attend a group meeting, try and think about where your anger might lead you. Will you wind up in jail? Will you hurt someone? Will you hurt yourself? Often, anger isn’t worth the consequences.

6. Know that it will pass. You can only stay truly angry and aggressive for a short period of time. After that time has passed, your emotions will start to settle. Try and wait it out.

7. Speak with a therapist or find a group near you. Anger is a real problem that most of us just ignore, but it’s also very bad for your health and for those people around you. Seeking some kind of help to fix your anger problem is never a bad thing.

 Exodus Supports Community Projects

We really believe in the people that make our communities better, and that’s why we support projects like ‘The Alternatives to Violence Project.’ Of course, we’re also here if you need to move to a different home or require any moving service help. We also offer storage facilities in both Fort Collins and Denver for you to store your things safely. As your Fort Collins movers, Exodus likes is here for you when you need to move or store your items, and we’re happy to give you a moving estimate quickly.

When it comes to anger and aggression, nothing good can come from those two very volatile emotions. If you live in Fort Collins, consider supporting ‘The Alternatives to Violence Project’ today, and call your Fort Collins movers for any moving needs or for a moving estimate.

Colorado’s Coffee Scene

Are you addicted to caffeine? Do you find it hard to get enough of that tasty cup of coffee? Well, if you are moving to Colorado, you will be happy to know that this state has more than its fair share of excellent coffee shops. In fact, Colorado has its own artisan (or third-wave, as it is sometimes called) coffee scene. Below are our favorite coffee spots – enjoy!

coffee

1. Paul’s Coffee and Tea: this coffee shop is small, quaint, and serves the perfect cup of coffee. You’ll find Paul’s in Louisville, CO.

2.  Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse: as you might have guessed, this teahouse is in Boulder, CO. During the summer months, you’ll find a lovely farmer’s market located near this coffee house too.

3. R&R Coffee Café: doesn’t the name of this coffee house sound divine? You’ll find a bit of R&R in Colorado Springs, CO.

4. Urban Steam Coffee: here’s another coffee gem in Colorado Springs. Urban Steam will definitely appease the third-wave coffee crowd, and you can get some yummy local treats to go with your coffee of choice here too.

5. The Bean Cycle: lattes, cappuccinos, and everything in-between is what you’ll find at The Bean Cycle. If you are moving to Fort Collins, this café is an absolute must (plus, you’ll find a quaint little bookstore nearby too!).

6. Wild Boar Coffee: here’s another Fort Collins gem. Maybe you can go from The Bean Cycle to Wild Board Coffee and back again for a true coffee voyage?

Other Coffee Spots

Colorado is known for its unique chains and some larger chains too, so you’ll find all of the big coffee shops in this state alongside all of the smaller ones. If you are a Starbucks fan, there are no shortage of Starbucks shops throughout the state. But, we urge you to try out some of the smaller, local, coffee shops for a taste of true entrepreneurial coffee spirit. Plus, most of the shops on this list offer local pastries and other goodies that you will absolutely love, so make sure to check those out.

Of course, you can also find some really decent beans that are roasted right here in Colorado. SwitchBack, Kaladi, and Elevation Traders are just a few of the roasters that make Colorado their home state. If you’re looking for delicious and fresh roasted coffee, you won’t have a hard time finding the perfect bag of beans to bring home. All you’ll need after you grab those beans is a great coffee machine, and you can find plenty of retailers selling machines in this state too. As you can see, Colorado is almost (almost) as serious about coffee as we are about burritos (but not quite!).

Getting Your Colorado Land Legs

If you aren’t quite sure where to live in Colorado, but you know that this town is for you, you’ll find tons of articles about this state on our blog. We’ve made sure to add plenty of information about moving to Colorado in addition to details about the many reasons why this state is so great. We hope that you’ll find almost everything you’re looking for on our site, but let us know if there’s something about Colorado that you want to know, and we’ll be sure to cover it here!

In the meantime, you might have noticed that we operate a full-service moving service and storage company. Not only do we love this state, but we want to help you move to it! No matter where you’re coming from, Exodus Moving and Storage can help you get all of your stuff where it needs to go in Colorado. We can also assist you with any office moving that you need to do. Estimates are always free, and we also have plenty of storage space for those items that you can’t bring along with you. Give us a call today to find out why so many people love Colorado, to get an estimate, and to speak with one of our representatives. When you do arrive in Colorado, let us know what your favorite coffee spot is too!

Valuing Feedback

After every move Exodus Moving & Storage completes, we will request your input about your moving experience with us. Continuous improvement is the hallmark of our success as a company and we are always anxious to get your feedback on how well we did our moving job.

Competitive and Accurate Estimates

The Cost of relocation is either based on weight or number of men and trucks needed as well as distance traveling. At no charge to you, one of our experienced and courteous Move Coordinators will review their move in great detail and provide you with an accurate move quote. Our Move Coordinator will also confirm requested pick-up and delivery dates.
