The Colorado Association of Realtors (CAR) is an integral part of our community. It is the largest professional network of realtors in the state, and it’s also a non-profit, voluntary, professional real estate association. What is CAR all about, and why has Exodus Moving and Storage partnered with this important association?
What CAR Does
The purpose of the Colorado Association of Realtors is to protect all aspects of real estate and to protect everyone that works in the Colorado real estate industry. CAR works with commercial brokers, residential brokers, home owners, property owners, land owners, and homeowners to ensure that all real estate professionals regardless of title are protected. Essentially, CAR’s mandate is to make sure that real estate professionals succeed when they become Realtors.
There are so many aspects of the real estate industry that it helps to have an association like CAR working on both the side of the Realtor with potential Realtor and with land and homeowners. CAR provides information for anyone involved in real estate including various conferences and meetings that aim to help people with becoming a Realtor or understanding various laws related to real estate.
Help With Becoming a Realtor
There’s a lot that goes into becoming a professional broker, whether commercial or residential, and having a guiding hand can certainly help. CAR offers licensing details, information about local associations, and plenty of conferences that are available for any aspiring realtor. The CAR also focuses on information geared towards home buyers and homeowners.
Buying a Home
Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments and life changing events that a person can go through. There are a lot of details that go into buying the home including things like what to do after a contract has been signed, figuring out how much you can afford, weighing the pros and cons between renting and buying, and many other important details. CAR aims to provide all of this accurate information to potential homebuyers through the CAR website. Homeowners and buyers can also attend any information session hosted by CAR that pertains to homeownership.
You should have lots of questions about buying a new home. CAR tries to answer those questions on the association’s main website. You can also contact CAR for additional information about the fine details associated with buying or selling any kind of home or business. While the Internet provides some details, CAR focuses on Colorado real estate specifically, and that makes all the difference!
A Complete Picture
Finding information about any aspect of selling or buying a home can be hard to do, and that’s what CAR exists — to make these details understandable and accessible to all. This is also one of the reasons why Exodus Moving and Storage has partnered with CAR. Exodus works with local associations and businesses that make an impact on our community, and CAR certainly fits that bill. Exodus is proud to be a partner of CAR, and we look forward to many additional events and collaborations with CAR in the future as well.

In addition to working with and supporting important figures and associations in our community, Exodus Moving and Storage operates a full-service moving company. We also offer storage solutions in both Fort Collins and Denver. If you need movers in Fort Collins for office moving or residential moving purposes, contact Exodus for a free estimate today. When it come to planning a move, CAR and Exodus can help!
For most business owners, there comes a time when you grow too big for the space you started out in. In the beginning, there’s no way to know just how you’ll fare. You don’t want to buy or lease a space that is far too big for your needs in the hopes you’ll grow into it, only to find out you never grow that big. You’re paying for wasted space at that point.
On the other hand, you don’t want to acquire a space that you outgrow before you are even into your second year of operations. Sure, it’s great that you’re growing, but it’s no fun to seek out yet another space that suits your needs and accommodates future growth.
If the time does come that you’ve outgrown the space your business calls home, there’s one thing you need to know: contracting with movers in Boulder, CO will be the single best decision you can make. The can help take care of the details you might not remember – you sure have enough to worry about with all of the other aspects of the move, why bother yourself with details these professionals deal with on the daily?
The Key: Doing Your (Extensive) Homework
Since you’re going to choose from a list of qualified residential moving companies, moving day means you have nothing to worry about. It’s just all the stuff before moving day that you need to worry about! Before you can even begin to take a peek at spaces currently on the market, you need to know what it is you are looking for. You don’t want to waste your precious time looking at places that won’t work for your needs.
Some things you might not be thinking about – the economics of the area you are considering moving to. Before you start walking through properties on the market, do a bit of research on the demographics of the area. Pretend you are moving your family into a new home. You don’t want to end up in the area with the highest crime rate and the worst schools, do you?
It’s the same for your business. If your moving motivation is to add more quality employees to the team, don’t end up in an area full of the least qualified candidates possible! Don’t just look at statistics. Pick up the local paper and scour the internet for news related to that area. Contact the area Chamber of Commerce.
Chat it up with other small businesses in the area. This will give you a real-world feel for those stats. Maybe the area is improving, something not reflected in the statistics. You won’t know unless you ask! Often, up-and-coming neighborhoods can be an excellent gamble if you have some insight into the future of the area.
Making the Move
Once you’re confident the location you’ve chosen is best, you’re ready for the next step: getting a moving quote from various companies. For the busy entrepreneur, we recommend assigning one person to manage the logistics of the move. They will be the one getting the quotes, making sure everything stays on track, and keeping employees in the loop regarding final dates and what needs to be done at each step of the way.
You’ll find there is a lot to consider, so you’ll want to make sure this person has a solid understanding of every aspect of what the move entails. Are you lugging all of the existing equipment along, or will you be contracting with another company for a new and improved machine? Are certain fixtures remaining, or will they need to start the search for new ones?
We at Exodus Moving and Storage are happy to help make your move as painless as possible, all while charging competitive rates. Give us a call and see how much we can do for a lot less than you’d expect! There are a lot of things to think about when it comes to your business move, but worrying about the actual move shouldn’t be one of them — leave that to us.
Are you moving long distance? You might want to take a few minutes to explore your town (okay, days, and maybe weeks) before you start a new job. That could mean going without pay for a while, but you don’t have to do that – you can actually turn exploring your new town into a job if you play your cards right! Here are some ways that you can check out your new town after moving long distance, and get paid for sight-seeing.
Be a Dog Walker: Do you notice that a lot of people in your area have dogs? Put up some dog walking signs if you like dogs, and you don’t mind walking them, and you could have a new business in no time. Plus, dogs don’t mind where you wander each day, so go where you feel like it – and enjoy the scenery.
Be a Bike Messenger: While we don’t recommend this if you don’t have any really good bike skills, if you know how to ride like a pro, you can do this job. Most bike messenger companies provide cyclists with GPS systems, so you can easily get around while delivering items.
Consider an app like Uber: Sign up to drive people around, and use a GPS system to get where you need to go. You’ll see all kinds of new places, and you can even meet some new people this way.
Lead a running team: Love to run? Got credentials? Put up some fliers to help other people learn how to run, and start heading outside. You’ll see all kinds of great things by exploring running paths.
Enter into a contest or two: So, you may not get any money doing this, but you could win a cash prize, and meet some new friends while you do it. Whatever it is that you do best, there’s bound to be some kind of competition out there for it.
Think about driving a taxi: If Uber isn’t your thing, hook up with an official licensed taxi company and work the day or night shift. If you are moving long distance to a new small town, you could find a cab company that only employes a few people, and this would be a great opportunity to learn the roads.
Be a personal assistant: Running around all day doing errands and picking things up is the best way to get to know your city quickly. A personal assistant with skills also gets paid decently, so think about this line of work for a temporary career.
Work with kids: If there are a lot of stressed out moms in the park and you have kid skills, tell those moms about your babysitting resume. You never know where kids might take you in a day – the playground, schools, museums — you’ll see the whole town before you know it.
Check out a site like Vayable and sign up: Vayable lets people give tours to tourists, and if you are moving to Cherry Creek or another part of town, you could create something really fun for visitors to do – and this would give you a good reason to get out there and explore.
Moving to Cherry Creek
Whether you are moving to Cherry Creek or anywhere else in Colorado, it’s best to get out and explore when you first arrive – and you can make money doing it too. If you need help with your move, call Exodus today, and let us take care of all the small things while you focus on exploring your new town.
If you are moving to Fort Collins around Thanksgiving Day, you may not have anywhere to enjoy a nice and warm Thanksgiving meal – understandable, since all of your plates and dinnerware will be packed away! But Thanksgiving is such an enjoyable holiday, and you deserve to have a great meal following your move. Here’s a list of some restaurants in the Fort Collins area that will be open and serving up Thanksgiving meals on the big day.
- Perkins Restaurant: this Fort Collins staple is usually known for its pies, but Perkins Restaurant and Bakery will be open on Thanksgiving Day until 3pm. You’ll be able to order all the turkey day fixings if you hit Perkins before then!
- Country Buffet: this restaurant might be a chain, but it’s hard to pass up an entire buffet full of food and turkey day bests, right? If you are really hungry after moving to Fort Collins, Country Buffet is the way to go.
- The Moot House: this steakhouse and pub is serving a Thanksgiving dinner this year, and you can see all of the details on this restaurant’s Facebook page (you may want to make a reservation, this dinner is proving to be very popular!).
- Denny’s: for late night eats, Denny’s restaurants are always available and ready to go when you are, but Denny’s also serves holiday meal specials, so you can count on this restaurant for any holiday meal.
Other Makeshift Dinner Ideas
Even if all of your stuff is packed up after moving to Fort Collins, you can still put together a quick Thanksgiving meal at home. How? Head to one of the markets in town, pick up some prepared foods that you love (and we’re betting you’ll find some of those old comforts in prepared food for too), and set up a picnic table inside of your new place – all you really need are some paper plates and utensils, a few candles, maybe a bottle of wine, and you’re ready to go.
After dinner, you can head outside to explore your new surroundings, check out the amazing landscapes that this town has to offer, and see if any stores are open. Chances are that you’ll find a few stores open on Thanksgiving Day, and you can always go to bed early in order to get up the next morning and see what’s really happening around town. There are also a few events going on that week, so make sure to check out the local calendar to see if you can join in on any holiday activities.

If you are thinking about moving to Fort Collins, there’s something that you should definitely try to get involved in next year: the Tour de Fat. This event if put on by New Belgium Brewing Co. (Fort Collins has more than a few breweries!), and it celebrates trading in cars for bicycles in an effort to help the environment and provides participants with a day of silly fun.
Some Quick Bicycle Facts
Most people in the U.S. still drive to work everyday for a few reasons. Mainly that riding a bicycle through snow and sleet or in bad weather just won’t work if you have to wear a suit. But new numbers released by The League of American Bicyclists show that more people are in fact trading cars for bikes – here’s some more data.
- Survey participants report making more than 4 billion trips by bicycle during the year 2009 – that number has certainly grown since that last survey.
- In some of the U.S.’s biggest cities, bicycle commuting rates have increased by a huge 80%.
- More roadspace throughout the U.S. is being dedicated to cyclists.
- States like New Hampshire have recently set up laws that provide cyclists with ample room to ride on roadsides in rural areas . Previously there was no designated distance that a car had to drive in relation to a cyclists. The new laws have made cycling in these areas much safer.
So, it’s easy to see why the Tour de Fat is so popular, but there are other reasons too – like beer, food, costumes, a parade, and a great time for all.
The Tour de Fat Details
What can you expect at next year’s Tour de Fat? Beer, parades, costumes at some parades, free beer for cyclists looking to participate in the event, entertainment like bands, musicians, and jugglers, and, of course, food! If this sounds like a chance to grab your bicycle and get a costume well, you’re right. In fact that’s what the Tour de Fat is all about, and it’s one of the most popular events in Fort Collins.
For those that are just moving to Fort Collins, you may not know that Fort Collins is home to both many microbreweries and larger commercial breweries alike. Truly Fort Collins is a beer haven. If you like beer, are interested in learning about beer, or simply want to come and join in the fun, the Tour de Fat is a great way to see what this city is all about. Make sure to bring your bicycle and sign up for next year’s event as soon as you arrive in Fort Collins.

We want to make sure that your bicycle and all of your costumes get to the Tour de Fat on time and in one piece. At Exodus Moving and Storage, we operate a full service moving company so we can move everything that you own to Fort Collins no matter where you are moving from.

The Mile-High City- there’s nothing like it. Perhaps that’s because it’s the second Exodus Moving & Storage location. Yes, we’re talking about Denver, Colorado. This week, our Colorado movers are going to spotlight the capitol of this magnificent state. This city truly offers something for everyone as it combines both history and entertainment with urban and rural living.
Check out some of the many things to do in Denver, Colorado:
• Denver Art Museum- The building itself is a work of art and the pieces inside are just as outstanding. Two buildings house the world’s greatest collection of Native American art along with 68,000 other art objects from renowned masters.
• Colorado State Capitol- You can’t visit (or live) in the capitol of CO without visiting the building that sits 5,280 feet above sea level and offers the perfect panorama of the snow-covered peaks. Climb to the top of the dome to view truly breath-taking sites.
• Larimer Square- This block is filled with the trendiest Victorian buildings that house dance clubs, shopping, comedy clubs, quaint outdoor cafés and a multitude of restaurants to try.
• 16th Street Mall- This is a mile-long promenade that boasts natural scenery (50,000 flowers!!), outdoor cafés and a walkway that was designed to mimic the pattern on a diamondback rattlesnake. It’s a must-see. Even locals love it!
• Confluence Park- There is seriously too much at this location to even begin describing. Confluence Park is home to an 850-mile bike trail network, the Platte River Trolley, the Downtown Aquarium, restaurants and Elitch Gardens- a downtown theme park right in Denver, CO.
• LoDo Historic District- Don’t let the name fool you, the historic district is filled with brewpubs, restaurants, rooftop cafés and iconic stores that invented some of the West’s greatest fashion.
• Cherry Creek- Just two miles from downtown Denver (and accessible by bike) waits the Denver Botanic Gardens and Cherry Creek Shopping District- check out one of the most beautiful displays of nature then catch up on your retail therapy.
• City Park- This area is known for the Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature & Science. City Park is also the largest park in the area with beautiful views of the mountains, lakes, gardens and paths for hiking and jogging.

This month’s Colorado Movers’ Charity Highlight goes to the Larimer Humane Society- “leading the way towards an aware and engaged community dedicated to compassionate and humane care of animals by promoting successful placement and responsible pet ownership.”
As movers in Colorado, we love to give back to the communities we serve and the Larimer Humane Society is the perfect way to do that. The Humane Society is the only open-door animal care facility in Northern Colorado and they offer amazing events for the entire community that promotes the health, treatment and well-being of ALL animals. Take for example the event that was held just a few days ago on President’s Day. The “President’s Day Pooch Party” is a celebration held for children ages 7-12 to come learn about caring for animals while on their day off from school. It’s fun, educational and raises awareness for their cause and is just one of the many educational camps offered to school-age children. Speaking of raising awareness, one of the goals of the Larimer Humane Society is to successfully place all treatable cats and dogs by the year 2020. This is a huge feat but if the community helps out and gives back to this amazing cause, we’re sure it can be achieved.
Annually, the Larimer Humane Society places more than 3,500 pets into new homes and reunites over 2,100 strays with their owners. This non-profit also provides animals with rehabilitation services to heal approximately 2,000 injured, ill and orphaned Colorado wild animals through their WildKind program.
As Colorado movers, we are proud to support such a great charity that works to reach everybody in the Colorado community and spread their mission of humane treatment for animals of all types. Check them out today at http://www.larimerhumane.org/home.

There is an old saying that there is no such thing as bad press. But in this digital age with social media as a communication standard and the majority of businesses networking through the use of directory listings, sometimes it can be downright complicated to sort through it all.
One of our favorite sites for customer review, social networking and local search has been a site called Yelp. A Yelp review has been an easily accessible way for our customers to create moving reviews for their experience with Exodus. It had also proved to be a great place to search through moving company reviews when shopping for the best movers. But recently, we have been experiencing a slight by omission. It’s not that we have a bad Yelp review, but thanks to the Yelp filters, we are missing some very good and extremely ecstatic feedback from some clients that we really enjoyed working with. We don’t quite understand the rationale or filtering system of this site, but in an effort to let these fine folks have their say, the following are 9 filtered reviews on Yelp that never made it to grace our page.
If you want someone you can trust and will do a good, clean and thorough job, you want Exodus. If you want cheap and dirty, go somewhere else. This company is first rate. We moved around the beginning of September 2011 and they came to the house to do the estimate (to be on site to see what there actually was). They packed us up. They loaded the truck (great job nothing broken) and unloaded the next day. They where mindful of not causing any bumps, scrapes or scratches. They did misplace a box in the house (a box of hardware to put the beds back together) but did return to the house and no extra charge to put everything back together once the box was found. They picked up boxes and packaging material at no extra charge. At the end of it all, the total bill was LESS than the estimate. How many companies do that? If you are nervous (as I was) and you just want a good, reliable company, look no further than Exodus.
Nate T. 10/31/2011 Parker, CO
I used Exodus for a move from San Jose to Denver. Although there were issues with the original truck that was going to be used for the move, I was kept informed the whole time regarding the status and my move was not delayed. Everyone I dealt with was professional and friendly. My belongings arrived on time and in great condition. I would definitely use Exodus again.
Katie P. 8/9/2011 Littleton, CO
I’ve moved six times with Exodus Moving and would use them again! They have moved me half way across the country twice and locally four times. They go out of their way to take as much stress out of the equation as possible. They are so friendly and professional!
Heather C. 8/9/2011 Loveland, CO
We used them for a short local move of all of our heavy stuff. These people are fantastic! A crew of three guys and a truck. They were prompt, careful, and very thorough! They were on time, they were fast, and careful at the same time. They came in well under their own estimate.
Had em come back a couple of weeks later and move a couple of pieces we had located in the wrong places. The second visit was every bit as good as the first experience.
Exodus moving is the BEST!
John T. 10/27/2011 Aurora, CO
I recently moved into my first home (yay!) and went with Exodus as my mover. I had heard of them by word of mouth and they came highly recommended. The days up to the move were fairly stressful due to some difficult circumstances that arose, completely unrelated to the move, and I was at my wits end leading up to moving day. Needless to say I was not looking forward to it.
When the movers showed up to load the truck, however, my mind was put at ease as I was greeted with friendly smiling faces who were very professional, and got down to business right away. I was truly impressed by the team, especially since our moving day was freezing cold and snowing, and certainly not ideal for the movers.
I would definitely recommend Exodus as opposed to the giant corporate movers who don’t know you by anything else as a number. The movers knew my name when they showed up and each introduced themselves to me, which was a nice change from the norm. Thanks Exodus for the least stressful moving experience that I’ve had!
Joy H. 8/9/2011 Commerce City, CO
As a director of a nonprofit that provides support to military families, I reached out to Joel and Exodus when one of my Gold Star Families needed help. Joel and crew were professional and compassionate. What a wonderful company and blessing to have in our communities!!
Heather E. 4/21/2011 Parker, CO
I moved from Denver to SF and was delighted with Exodus’ performance. Nothing was damaged and the people — from the CFO to the movers — were unbelievably nice and extremely careful with my items, including a high-value piano that I own. Our move took place during a massive rainstorm and required double parking a semi in downtown SF, yet it went off without a hitch! Hiring Exodus was the best decision I could have made.
Heidi B. 3/23/2011 Denver, CO
Exodus Moving was absolutely astonishing. I was nervous about the move from Fort Collins to Denver, but Exodus made it simple and easy. Joel planned my move perfectly, everything went smoothly. When it was time for the boxes to be loaded, the workers were very possessional, well-dressed and well-groomed. Everyone was very polite, I was amazed! Everything arrived on time, and in perfect condition. I don’t plan on moving again, but if I do, I’ll choose Exodus for sure!
Adam S. 1/31/2011 Denver, CO
Amazing people, very professional and came in under budget! Removed a huge amount of stress from my Los Angeles to Denver move.

Exodus Moving and Storage has been serving the moving needs of Colorado and beyond for several years now. The dream of one individual became the cause of many, starting with one small moving truck and becoming a full service relocation company. Today, we are the best Colorado moving company and we our proud not only of our humble beginnings but of the teamwork it has taken to excel in such a large and saturated market such as the moving and storage industry. As the time of thanks draws near, we have so many things to be thankful for. Here are just a few at the top of our list.
At Exodus, we hand pick our employees. We don’t believe in the concept of day- labor or temporary hires. Instead we interview, do reference checks and drug tests and we hire only those fine folks that we feel would properly represent us in the field with our customers, every day. We take moving people very seriously, so we make sure that our staff receives ongoing training and fair wages, making our employee turnover rate one of the lowest in the country. We are also Choose People Certified because we are committed to being “happy place to work.” The people of Exodus are what make our company like no other.
We are proud to boast a damage ratio that is ¼ of the industry average. This is a result of the combination of quality workers and comprehensive training. When we were just starting out, every client and every referral meant everything to our business. We knew that our biggest competition was riddled with moving horror stories because of their lack of attention to detail and lack of accountability with regard to their staff. We are expert movers, proud of the work we do. And no matter how big we become, we still work under the philosophy that one unsatisfied customer is one too many.
We are passionately involved in our communities. At Exodus, we put our time, talents and money into the places that we live and work. We support green energy practices within our offices and have incorporated many green friendly procedures into our work. This includes our tree planting program for every move we complete. For this program we partner with Trees Water & People. We are also thankful for the freedoms we have and maintain in this great country of ours and regardless of political affiliation, we support causes that support our troupes and their families. Project Sanctuary and Colorado Hire Patriots are a few of the military support groups that we are committed to.
As we celebrate thanksgiving this year, we are setting our table with gratitude. We are thankful for the work we do, the communities we serve and the people who make it all possible. What are you thankful for?
