Dropcam For Your New Home: Does It Work?

As soon as the Boulder movers drive away and leave you in your new home, you may start to wonder how safe your new neighborhood is. Or, whether or not you should invest in a home security system. A traditional security system can cost a lot in initial setup fees and monthly fees, but there’s another option that’s gotten a lot of attention lately: the Dropcam home security system.

What It Is

Dropcam is a small home security camera that you can place on any surface or attach to any wall (no wiring required). Dropcam monitors movement inside of your home, stores all images to the cloud, and then allows you to view those images from your tablet, laptop, or other mobile device remotely. In addition to its camera capabilities, Dropcam also includes a two-way speaker that lets you communicate with people (or pets) that are in your home, night vision to see what’s happening at night clearly, and “bank level” security and encryption.

Dropcam is one of the simplest ways to arm you home. If you don’t want to invest in a home security system that’s expensive and requires a tricky setup, Dropcam might be the choice you’re looking for.

Possible Drawbacks

The one drawback to Dropcam is that you will have to outfit your home with many of these devices if you want to see everything that’s happening in your home. Otherwise, you’ll have to point the device at one particular area. But, the Dropcam does come with a 130-degree field of view, so you can see a lot of what’s happening in any home. It’s also possible to zoom in on any image when using this camera.

Pricing

The actual camera is $199. If you want to add cloud recording to the device (and that’s probably a good idea), pricing is available on a yearly basis starting at $99 for 7-day cloud recording and moving to $299 for 30-day cloud recording (after that time has expired, the images will no longer be available in the cloud, and the time will reset). Cloud recording is optional, though, and you can just purchase the camera.

A Good Idea?

If you’ve just moved to a new town, you may start hiring people like babysitters and dog walkers. While it’s great to find necessary help in your new town, it’s hard to know whether or not you can trust those people right away (after all, it takes time to build relationships!). This is where a camera like Dropcam comes in handy. You can monitor everything that’s happening in your home, and you can see when people come in and out. If someone is doing something that you do not like, you can simply look for another person to complete that task. If you do opt for one of the cloud packages, you can record details of a person’s visit. Essentially, Dropcam gives you the peace of mind that you may require following moving into a new area.

The Oddest Holiday Traditions in the World

For the most part, holiday traditions in North America are pretty tame. But elsewhere in the world, some holiday traditions may strike you as just plain bizarre. Before you decide to call your Boulder movers and relocate, make sure that you’re not moving to an area where there’s a peculiar holiday tradition that may just creep you out — or more there knowing about the tradition, and wanting to take part in it!

Krampus: Popular in Eastern Europe, Krampus is a character that’s also known as Santa’s Evil Twin. Every year during the holiday season, adult men dress up in evil costumes, and wander around town with switches tapping people randomly. Krampus is supposed to remind kids to be good, and to stay off of Santa’s bad list, but really he’s just frightening!

In Norway, legend has it that evil spirits and witches look for brooms to fly around on during Christmas Eve. To prevent any spirits from stealing brooms from homes, all brooms are hidden, and the men of the family head outside with shotguns to wait for any spirits that might come around.

A KFC Christmas in Japan: In Japan, Christmas Eve dinner consists of a bucket of KFC. This tradition is so popular in Japan that reservations must be made in advance in order to get some of the good stuff for Christmas Eve dinner.

One member of a model Christmas village that you may not see anywhere outside of Spain, Portugal, or Italy is a figurine known as the ‘Caganer.’ These figurines are created with their pants pulled down, and those decorating the traditional Christmas village (with Mary and Joseph and all) put a Caganer in a corner to do his business.

A New Tradition for You

If you are planning to move to any of the countries mentioned here, you may find yourself enjoying a new holiday tradition. In most parts of North America, Christmas traditions include lights and gingerbread, but few include scary evil witches or devils! If you do find yoursel moving to one of the countries listed above, make sure to embrace the strange holiday traditions you find there. You never know, some of those traditions could be a lot of fun!

Getting to Your New Country

You will need to work with a long distance moving company in order to get where you want to go, and we can help with this kind of move. From moving within the U.S. to moving to another country, Exodus can help you move all of your things safely and soundly. Just call us today for a moving quote, for more information, or to find out about our storage space options.

We know that you can’t always move every item you own if you don’t have the space in your new home, and that’s why we have storage locker solutions for you. Call us today for rates and for more information about our storage options, or about what we can do for you where moving and other details are concerned. If you have any questions about our services, we’ll be happy to answer those when you call too (or you can find us on Facebook).

Do you have any strange holiday traditions that you’d like to share with us? Let us know by leaving a note on our Facebook page, or by leaving a note here. We’re better that most of the traditions elsewhere in the world are a lot stranger than what you do each year, but we could be wrong! We’d love to hear from you! Call our moving company in Fort Collins, and let us help you get where you need to go.

The Snowiest Places to Live

Mover in Boulder CO know that this town gets a lot of snow, so it’s the perfect place to move to if you love that fluffy stuff! But what about the rest of the world? Where are the places on the globe that receive the most snowfall? If you love to ski, snowboard, or just like the idea of a white town during the winter, here are some of the snowiest places on earth (mostly the US)!

  • Mount Washington, New Hampshire: There are a lot of great reasons to move to New Hampshire including no sales tax, a lower cost of living, and Mount Washington — one of the snowiest places on the globe. In some spots on the mountain, around 80 feet of snow piles yearly. You can’t live on Mount Washington, but you can live near it!
  • Nagano, Japan: If you move to Japan’s Nagaon area, you can enjoy plenty of snowfall regularly. This is one of the snowiest spots on the globe, and it’s also one of the prettiest.
  • Alta, Utah: Alta is a popular ski area for good reason — this spot is covered in steep and thick snow most of the year, and it’s the best place to go if you want to ski.
  • Fargo, North Dakota: By January, Fargo is usually buried underneath 12 feet of snow, and this town is known for being one of the snowiest around. If you really love the snow, Fargo might be your ultimate destination.
  • Denver, Colorado: If you’ve moving to Denver, you’re in for a snowy treat! Denver gets an average of 53-inches of snow each year, not too shabby!
  • Fort Collins, Colorado: Moving to Fort Collins? Even better! Fort Collins gets an average of 54-inches of snow each year, so it’s just slightly higher where snowfall is concerned than Denver.
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota: With 55-inches of snowfall each year, Minnesota beats both Denver and Fort Collins where snowfall is concerned. Not sure where to move? Why not check out snowy Minnesota if you love the white stuff?
  • Provo, Utah: Utah doesn’t have a shortage of snow, and Provo is one of the snowiest towns in the state with an average of 57-inches of snowfall per year.

Choosing from National Moving Companies

Whether you choose Colorado as your destination or you’re move keen on living in New Hampshire, if snow is what you want the places listed above will satisfy your need for powder throughout the winter season. Most of these places double as resort towns, or aren’t far from resort towns, too, so you can enjoy living in some of the nicest ski areas in the world should you decide to move.

If you’re currently looking for national moving companies to select from while in the process of your move, make sure to consider Exodus Moving and Storage. From moving to Parker to moving to Fort Collins, Exodus can help you pack, move your things, unpack, and set up your new home or business from start to finish. We also offer competitive rates, easy moving solutions, and a qualified moving team with years of experience. If you need to store some items that won’t fit in your new home, we have storage space in both Fort Collins and Denver as well – ask us about our storage space prices and sizes.

For those looking to have the snowiest winters available, nothing beats the towns on this list for snowfall. On the flip side, if you hate the snow, it’s probably best to avoid any town on this list! Call us today for a free quote and to set up your move – whether you’re moving away from or towards more snow!

Couch Fabrics That Are the Easiest To Clean

When it comes to kids, pets, and guests, couches just don’t last that long. The average lifespan of a couch is five years, six if you’re lucky. Starting out with a couch fabric that’s easy to clean will go a long way towards keeping that couch looking better longer, and you may even be able to get away with moving your old couch to your new space.

The Best Fabrics to Choose

  • Micro-suede: Because it’s not made of real leather, micro-suede is simple to clean. In most cases, a quick wipe will get rid of any stains, and tough stains can be removed with couch cleaner.
  • Leather: Leather actually isn’t hard to clean, though it can crack and fade, and it’s also a favorite material of cats (so watch out!). You can simply wipe leather in order to clean it, and it’s hard to stain unless you spill red wine or other liquid that might be absorbed by the porous material.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl is really simple to clean (simpler than leather), but it’s not an easy material to find. Plus, some people really just don’t like the look of vinyl, so this one is entirely personal.

The Worst Materials

  • Natural fibers: While a cotton couch looks nice, cotton stains easily (so does wool and other natural materials), so beware of a cotton couch if you want the couch to last for a long time.
  • Silk: Silk couches look really nice, but silk is a picky material. Not only does silk stain, it also rips easily and you’ll be looking at a shredded couch if your cat decides that she likes silk a lot.
  • Leather: Notice how leather is in both categories? That’s because there are different grades of leather, and some are far more porous than others. When you buy a leather couch, ask the salesperson if the leather that you like is more or less susceptible to stains.

Stained Couch Woes

Before you call the Boulder movers, think about whether or not you want to keep that stained couch. In almost every city, there’s some kind of shelter or other non-profit that would gladly take any kind of couch that’s in somewhat good condition. You can also donate the couch to a group home, or give it to someone that’s really in need. If you do not want the couch, you can always throw it out, but be careful to toss it in a designated area (you can’t just leave it on the sidewalk!).

What about that semi-stained couch that you want to move to your new home, but your girlfriend is not into? Well, in that case you can simply store your old couch, and sneak it into your new home when she’s not around — or, ok, you can save it until you have your Man Cave set up. As movers in Greeley, CO, we know that sometimes you just want to put some stuff in storage. That’s why we have storage space in both Fort Collins and Denver, and why we are more than happy to provide you with competitive storage space pricing.

We are just movers, we have storage solutions too! When it comes to moving companies in Colorado, Exodus is here for you. Call us today for a free quote, or let us know what you need when it comes to moving help. You can also find us on Facebook if you have any questions, or if you want to let us know about an upcoming move that you’re planning. In the meantime, make sure to buy a couch with fabric that lasts!

How to Make More Room in a Small Bedroom

Lots of stuff to put in the bedroom and a small bedroom space don’t mix. This is a common problem that people often face when moving to a new place, or trying to make sense of an older space. Bedrooms should be serene, so that you can sleep with ease, but a small bedroom can easily become cluttered. What should you do with all of your things, and how can you really maximize the space inside of a small bedroom? Here are some helpful tips.

Make the most of your bed space. There are plenty of bed frames that come with storage space underneath, and you can also buy plastic containers that can easily hold anything you can’t fit in a close or inside of a bureau. Placing things under your bed (in a neat way) can really give you a lot more space.

Change your bedside table choice. Either purchase a floating shelf or drawer that’s completely off of the floor, or find slim side tables with drawers. If you can put stuff into your bedside table drawers, you’ll instantly have more space. (Just don’t let those drawers turn into junk piles!)

Figure out how to best organize your closet. You can hire a closet designer to come into your home and give you the best organizational tips, or you can purchase closet organization racks and other items that will give you more space. If your shoes are on the floor and your clothes are hard to find, it’s time to think of an alternative way to store stuff in your closet.

Organize your drawers. If your bureau is overflowing with items, you are really not alone — most people do not have clearly organized bureau drawers. But fixing this problem is easy enough with some simple drawer dividers sold at most home stores.

Get into the habit of cleaning everything in your room once per month. If you have books stacked and overflowing on your table, stuff under your bed, and drawers that resemble rummage piles, it’s time to start cleaning. Toss anything that’s seen better days, and try to get rid of things that just aren’t in good shape. If you do this once per month, you’ll quickly start to tidy up.

Reorganize the way that you stack your shirts. If you store your t-shirts inside of your bureau, consider stacking them in a different way. Instead of piling one on top of the other, stack shirts sideways and neatly folded, so that you can see everything that’s inside of a drawer.

It’s All About Organization

Small spaces don’t lend themselves to too much clutter. Look for furniture items that double as storage pieces with drawers or hidden compartments, keep as much furniture as possible off of the floor, separate and organize your bureau, and invest in a close organizational system when necessary. The trick to a smaller space is all about organizing, and this can begin before you move to your new home.

How to Make Friends When You Move

Moving to a new place means leaving almost everything behind. Sites like Facebook can help you stay in touch with people from your old town, but getting into a new social scene can be tough. Whether you’re moving to Boulder or any other place, there are some good ways that you can begin building new friendships – give any one of these tactics a shot, just in case you’re worried about what to do on a Friday night.

The Job Plan

If you’re moving for a new job, making friends will be somewhat easier than if you’re a freelancer or moving for another reason. Start talking with your new coworkers, don’t skip those 5-7 happy hours, and make plans with people on the weekends. Hopefully, some of those people will introduce you to other people, and you can begin expanding your network.

The Meetup Spot

Sites like Meetup.com are filled with groups of people with like-minded interests. Find a group that looks appealing to you (based on what you like to do), and join the group for meetups. You may just find one or two really good friends in that group of people.

The Religion Route

Getting involved in community events is simpler if you have a church or other religious meeting spot to go to. As soon as you arrive, introduce yourself to church members, and explain that you are new in town. Before you know it, you will have bake sales and other events to attend throughout the week.

The Fun Way

There were probably a few things that you loved to do in your old town, right? Find those same activities in your new town, sign up, and get involved. As soon as you make your presence known, you will find a whole new group of people that you can become friends with.

Taking First Steps

There are other people out there just like you waiting for new friends to come along too. Connect with those people by asking them to hang out on a weekend, or find out what they like to do in their spare time. Sometimes, meeting new people requires making the first move, so you may have to be the one that does all the inviting. Don’t be shy, and reach out to others in order to make friends. As soon as you start to join groups and meet people, you will have more friends than you can handle!

Hiring National Moving Companies

You can work with national moving companies, or you can find a moving company in Colorado to work with. No matter where you are moving, Exodus Moving and Storage is here to make that transition simpler. In addition to offering full service moving options, we also have storage spaces in both Denver and Fort Collins for you to select from. If you can’t move some of your old things into your new place, just rent a storage space!

Moving to a new town might feel a bit lonely at first, but you can beat those blues by meeting some new and interesting people. Get out there, join some groups, make some new friends, and get into the mix of things. Colorado towns are open and welcoming, and you and your skills are needed and wanted in a number of different places! Since your experiences can help others, we also want to know: how did you make new friends when you moved?

Single Mom Moving: Helpful Tips 

If you’re starting over as a single mom, moving to a new location might present a challenge. Not only do you have to find a new place that’s affordable on one salary, you also have to pack everything up by yourself and get it where it needs to go (or you could just hire a Boulder moving company to pack and move for you!). We know that moving as a single mom is hard, so here are some tips from Exodus, your Boulder moving company.

  • Begin your move early. Start looking for a place, figuring out finances, and planning everything else well in advance of the actual move date. Chances are that you know when you are going to move, so take a few weeks ahead of that date to find the perfect place.
  • Get rid of things you don’t need. If your closets are bursting at the seams, make sure to go through each item, determine whether or not you need all of those things, and toss what you no longer need. This way, you won’t have to pack so much, and there will be less for your Boulder moving company to move.
  • Get help. Either hire a moving company in Denver, or ask some friends and family members to help you move to your new place. With kids, pets, and other things in tow, it makes sense to hire a moving company in Denver to help you out – trying to take on too much is simply exhausting!
  • Try and organize your schedule and other things. If you actually write everything down on paper, you will find that getting through everything you need to do is a lot simpler. From the moment that you decide to move, buy a calendar and start making down things that you need to get done before the move. Then, stick to this list and the dates that you have set. Sometimes, a bit of organization goes a really long way.

When You Arrive

On the day that you arrive at your new place, try not to wait to unpack your boxes. You may not get it all done in one day, but unpacking as soon as possible is the best way to make sure that everything is in its new home quickly. Plus, the sooner you have spots for all of your things, the faster you will get used to the new layout of your home.

As far as your kids go, if they are old enough to unpack their own things, you can easily turn moving day into a fun day filled with packing games and unpacking games. If you ask the moving company in Denver that you hire to place the boxes in the right rooms, unpacking should be a lot simpler. Unpacking quickly is one of the best ways to explore your new place, and to see what you do have and what you need to buy.

Planning Your Move

Aside from finding the perfect spot, informing the kids, changing things like schools and doctors, and actually moving to your new place, there’s a lot that goes into moving day. The whole process can be a lot simpler with a moving company like Exodus on your side. Plus, we also have storage facilities in both Denver and Fort Collins, so you can store anything that doesn’t fit in your home right now. Contact us today for a free moving quote, and we’ll be happy to let you know how quickly we can move you and your family to a new home.

Moving as a single mom isn’t always simple, but we can help make the process simpler. Follow the steps above, and ask us if you need any help when it comes to moving.

10 Unique Housewarming Gifts

Your dear friends have just moved with the help of Boulder movers, and are working on getting settled in to their new home. Next up: the housewarming party. Sure, you could get them a Tupperware set or some kind of cute “Welcome Home” sign to hang on their door, but chances are they already have enough of that. If you have to employ a residential moving company to get your stuff to your new house, you probably have all of the typical household items given at housewarming parties.

If you’re looking to get your friends something incredibly thoughtful and unique, something no one else will get them, here’s a fun list.

  • Make a terrarium. Terrariums are all the rage – glass containers housing a mini indoor garden – and they’re simple to make. Google it to get ideas, and then make them a unique, one-of-a-kind gift you’ve taken the time to design just for them. The best part: every time they go to water it, it will remind them of you!
  • Jar up a meal. Forget the sugary treats-in-a-jar, where all the ingredients are in there layered attractively so that they can enjoy your family’s sugar cookie recipe, for example. What they really want is a home cooked meal without the fuss (or the measuring cups, because they’ve been packed by the Fort Collins moving company!). A popular choice here is pasta and soup, where everything you need is all in the jar with instructions on how to heat it up. All they need to do is dump it in the pot and cook it. Just as convenient as take-out without the expense. If you can’t find something you like, you can always provide something they can freeze, like lasagna or another casserole-type dish. Trust me when we say your gift will be their favorite gift!
  • Cake. But not the type you eat. Think diaper cake, but no diapers. You can do a household essentials cake, with a basket of cleaning supplies at the bottom, toilet paper in the middle, and paper towels topping it off, wrap it all up in cellophane, and tie a bow on it. More like gift baskets than cake.
  • Grocery gift card. Just like the jarred meal, it’s exactly what they want. You know their pantry needs stocking, and this is the perfect way to help them.
  • Throw blanket. This is always a winner – everyone could use more blankets! Consider their décor and tastes when choosing the right throw to suit them so it doesn’t end up forever banished to a closet.
  • Personalized anything. Whether a simple sign for inside their house, a welcome sign outside with their name on it, or a personalized doormat, you can’t go wrong. The best part is you can personalize just about anything these days, even cutting boards and wine casks! This opens up the door to choosing something that is uniquely them.
  • QR Code for their Wi-Fi password. You know everyone is going to ask them for it, so make things super simple for them and provide a framed QR code guests can scan to log in to their wifi network. Genius! Just head to QRStuff.com, select “plain text,” and enter the password. After choosing a color to print it in, the website will automatically generate a QR code. Voila! Test it with your devices to make sure it works, and then print it out and frame it. Simple, and very unique (your friends will love it!).
  • A strange kitchen item no one would buy for themselves. Did you know they make a kitchen tool that you stick in the center of a cake, and it marks the lines to cut perfect slices? Your friends probably don’t have one, nor would they buy one – but you could! Housewarming parties are the perfect place to give these I-didn’t-realize-I-needed-it gifts. Other great items include a spaghetti measure, a plate designed for serving pancakes, novelty cutting boards, and magnetic bottle openers.
  • USB charging outlet. Why take up valuable outlet real estate? Purchase them a couple of wall outlets that feature a built in USB charging port right next to the outlets.
  • Personalized commemorative ornament. Commemorate this moment in time with an “Our New House” ornament. You can find many online that are as simple as that saying with the year, or add their last name. Find one that suits them so that they can be reminded of this moment every time they decorate the Christmas tree.

Forget the kitchen towel set. Get them something unique they’ll cherish for years to come, long after the Boulder movers have gone. Contact us today if you need Boulder movers!

Moving Your Business? Think About Hiring Freelancers

If you’re in the process of moving your company, there’s a lot to do in order to make sure that your office looks just as good in the new place as it did in the old one. But some things about your office can change, and those things might just benefit your company as a whole in the long run. One of the shifts that many business owners go through when moving a business is the hiring of new employees.

Chances are that if you’re moving long distance or even a short distance, some of your existing employees may not want to make that move with you. This means that you have to hire new people, but instead of going the same route to hire in-office employees, consider the benefits of hiring freelancers.

When A Move Is Necessary

A lot of companies move in order to downsize. If the office space that you’re renting has become too expensive or there’s just not enough room, you’ll have to figure out a way to move, save money, and possibly cut back on expenses if your company isn’t doing too well at the moment. A freelancer can give you that flexibility. While a freelancer can still be on the payroll, these people do not have to occupy physical office space, so you can rent out a smaller office.

The Cost Benefits

The real benefit to hiring a freelancer is that you will save money in doing so. How? A freelancer doesn’t have to be part of your company insurance plan, and you don’t have to include this person in the same payment plan either. Often, freelancers have set contract rates, and these can be much lower than hiring a person with a full-time salary.

When to Look for a Freelancer

Freelancers have more flexibility than full-time employees, so hiring freelancers when you need an extra hand makes good sense. It also pays to have a lineup of reliable freelancers that you can call whenever you need some additional help on hand – so treat the freelancers that you do hire right.

It also pays to hire a freelancer when you don’t have anyone on staff that can complete a specific project or do something as well as the freelancer you have in mind. That said, though, it’s always important to hire the right person for the job – and never hire anyone based on their geographic location! With so many ways to communicate with anyone in the world, there’s really no need to restrict yourself to one area when it comes to hiring the best expert for the job.

Moving Long Distance for Work

If you are looking into moving long distance because the company you work for is moving, consider branching out and becoming a freelancer – as you can see, there are two sides to this coin! If you happen to be moving to Boulder, and you are searching for a Boulder moving company, be sure to call the team at Exodus Moving and Storage. We know how important getting your things packed, moved, and to your new location on time is, which is why we pride ourselves on being one of the top picks for a Boulder moving company available.

While you decide on a move, consider the possibility of moving your staff around as well by incorporating some freelancers into the mix. Even though the traditional office was once made up of in-house workers, all of that has changed with technology, and now the best of both worlds is within your reach.

Flying? Ways to Pass Airport Time

If you’re moving to Boulder from another part of the country or the world, you’ll probably be spending some time waiting at an airport. Even though some airports try really hard to provide travelers with great places to shop, duty free options, and plenty of food and coffee choices, waiting for hours on end at an airport is really anything but fun or exciting. So, how can you pass the time at an airport without being bored to tears?

We’ve helped a lot of people that are moving to Boulder (and we’ve spent a lot of time in airports!), so we have a few tips for you to help you pass the time when you’re stuck waiting for your flight.

  • Use the time to catch up on your reading. When was the last time that you had a chance to sit down with a paperback book? If you haven’t done the reading thing in a while, check out some best-seller lists before you leave, and make sure to pack a good book or two. If you forgot to bring a book with you, rest assured that most airports on your way to moving to Boulder have bookstores – stock up!
  • Check out your social networks. See what the people you know are doing on sites like Facebook (we’re there too!), Twitter, and LinkedIn. See if you can connect with more people, read funny things that other people have posted, and enjoy the time that you have to read through posts you may not read otherwise.
  • Get a massage or go for a manicure. Sure, those airport beauty options can be pricey, but you totally deserve a pedicure if your feet are sore and tired. Kick off your shoes and let the professional go to work on your toes or nails, or get a nice relaxing massage to really ease the tension that you might have felt after crossing through customs or waiting for hours in those really uncomfortable airport chairs.
  • Find a lounge. There are exclusive lounges all over the airport for VIPs, but you can get in on some lounge action even if you aren’t a VIP. Before you leave, find out if the airport you’ll be stuck at will allow you access to a lounge for a one-time fee. Some lounges offer great little pampering extras that you will really enjoy indulging in if you are stuck at an airport for any length of time.
  • Roam around and people watch. Sometimes, it can be really entertaining just to sit back, grab a drink or coffee, and watch the travelers roll by. There’s really no better time to just relax and see what other people are up to, where other people are going, and to maybe make a friend or two while you wait.
  • Get some air. Some airports have rooftops that are accessible, so check this out if it’s a possibility. Once you’re past the security checkpoint, though, it might be hard to get outdoors, so take your time soaking up the sunshine while you can.
  • If you have a layover, why not check your bags at the airport by renting a locker, and get outside to enjoy the city that you’re currently in? You can roam around for a few hours, see the sights, and get back to the airport in time for your flight. Just make sure to consider rush hour traffic and other delaying factors.

Working With Your Long Distance Moving Company

If you are flying and you have hired a long distance moving company to get your stuff to your new place, make sure to tell the long distance moving company that you’ve hired what your flight time are, and when you can expect to arrive at your destination. This way, you are all on the same page when it comes to your arrival time – or just arrange to have your moving company arrive a day or two after your flight lands. Either way, you’re in great hands with Exodus Moving and Storage. Call us today to book your move, and enjoy the time you have to spend in the airport!
