Moving 101: Top 8 FAQ’s

Moving to Fort Collins, CO? If this is your first big move, don’t worry – we’re here to help. You probably have many questions just to make sure you can get this done as smoothly as possible.

Let’s get those questions answered, shall we? Here are some of the most common questions people have about the moving process – hopefully, you’ll read this list and find just the answer you’re looking for!

Where do I start? This is easier than you think. Rather than turning to the internet for guidance, start with your co-workers, family, and friends. It’s better to get recommendations from those people you trust rather than random people on the internet, who may or may not be completely honest with their assessment. When you’ve narrowed your list down, contact the Better Business Bureau to make sure they’re on the up-and-up. If you do use the internet as your research method, know that some shady companies actually pay people to write reviews, so they may not be what they seem.

When should I move? Some people have no choice. If you’re a military family, you go where they tell you, when they tell you. If you are lucky enough to choose the time of year in which you move, you might be surprised to know the best time to move is during the winter. May to September is considered a busy season by moving companies, so it can be tough to land the moving company you want. They might be booked solid! You’ll find it much easier to get the residential moving company you desire during the fall and winter months. Remember to be as flexible as you can – this ensures the moving company can get you on the schedule more easily.

What exactly happens during the estimate process? A representative will come into your home to take an inventory of everything being moved room by room, estimating the size and weight of each item, and how many boxes they think will be required. They’ll go over the logistics with you – what, if any, packing services will be required, the dates you’d like to move, any special information, etc – and use all of this information to create an estimate. At this time, they can answer any questions you have.

What if something changes? If the date of your move changes unexpectedly, if you find there are items you neglected to list during the inventory process, or you wish to remove items from the inventory, just contact the moving company. They will update the inventory accordingly, and let you know if there is a change in your moving estimate.

I’ve opted to pack myself. Where do I start? It’s important you pack items well to ensure nothing is damaged in transit. First, make sure your boxes are up to the task. Yes, you can go to grocery and liquor stores to collect empty boxes, but they might not be the best way to protect your belongings. We can supply you with proper boxes that ensure everything arrives in the same condition it left in. If it really worries you, just leave the packing to us!

What if my new home isn’t ready for my stuff? Sometimes, you need to have your stuff moved before you can load it all into the new residence. In this case, storage is necessary for a certain period of time. Just talk to us about your needs – we can tell you all about our storage options. While we can’t put your family up for a period of time, we can store your stuff!

What about house plants? To guarantee their survival, it is recommended you move house plants on your own. If you’re moving from state to state, you’ll want to check regulations regarding incoming plants. Some states don’t allow it, while others do.

When should I start the process? Sometimes you have no choice, and need to expedite the process. If you can, contact moving companies as soon as possible. Not only will it give you the time to select the perfect company based on your needs, it will increase the chances you’ll be able to move exactly when you want to. This is especially true during the busy season. In the off-season, you’ll be able to shorten that amount of time.

A New Home, A New Diet: How to Do It

Moving to Denver or anywhere else in the world? With a new move comes a lot of new opportunities to reinvent yourself, try things that you may not have tried before, and even start a new diet or lifestyle that interests you. If you have been thinking about a new type of diet for a long time, why not put that diet into place when you move?

A new diet doesn’t necessarily have to mean weight loss either. You can change your diet if you want to try something new, and the good news is that a new diet is relatively easy to do. But where do you begin? Here are some tips on how to start a new diet — you’ll quickly learn whether you love or hate your new lifestyle!

Read and research. Most diets have a background, a reason why they were invented. Let’s take the popular vegan diet. Most vegans do not eat any animal products because they do not believe that humans need to consume animal products. Some vegans stop eating meat for health reasons too, and this might be your motivator as well.

Before you start a diet of any kind, though (whether vegan or Paleo), it’s a good idea to read as much as you can about the diet. This way, you can understand why the diet was created, and how you can immerse  yourself in the ways of the diet without becoming too hungry or nutrient deprived. Reading about a diet before you start is a great way to slowly take part in a food change.

Figure out what to eat. What do most people on this diet eat? Is it a portion control diet or a nutrient diet? Are you taking certain things into consideration like whether or not you need more nutrients or food if you are training?

Do you know what foods to grab when you are at the grocery store, or how to make certain essential things? There are a lot of food blogs that can be found online that will help you figure out all of these details, and it’s a good idea to find some trustworthy blogs before you change your diet.

Will you need to get your family on board, or can you follow a different diet than your family members? This is an important element to consider — especially if you don’t want to make a bunch of different dinners and lunches every day! Is this diet something your family will follow easily too?

Will you need some kind of doctor or nutritionist help? If you have any current health conditions, it’s wise to speak with your doctor before moving to a new diet. Also, a skilled nutritionist can really help where figuring out what to eat and how to balance on your new diet is concerned. Find a nutritionist in your area that has experience with the diet you are exploring, and learn how to build a solid meal plan based on the foods that you are now eating.

Consider moving slowly. You may find that changing your diet completely right away can cause a bit of a shock! Try incorporating a few things here and there, and eventually you can switch to the new diet completely. Just like anything else, slowly is usually better here.

Find other people that are on the same diet. The Internet is great for these things, but you can also use sites like Yelp to find people that are following the same new diet. Sometimes, sharing recipes and talking with people that are going through the same thing can help a great deal — plus, you’ll have new friends to dine with!

Remember to enjoy your diet change. The point of changing the way that you live is to enjoy the new changes, and not to hate them! If you do find a new diet, try it out, and can’t stand to live that way, don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead, realize that this diet might not be for you, and try something else – you have a whole lifetime to explore different diets.

Sleeping During a Move: Some Tips

There are a lot of things to think about while preparing for a move. Some of those things may not ever leave your mind, and this can result in many sleepless nights! An overactive mind is something that you can eventually tame, but it will take some know-how to quiet your mind down enough to actually sleep through the night.

As movers in Boulder CO, the Exodus team knows a thing or two about moving, and how to get enough sleep during a move. Here are some helpful tips to assist you with getting that needed sleep every day, so that you can prepare for your move with a clear and rested head.

The Trick to Napping

If you can’t quiet down your mind at first, you may feel exhausted during the daytime. A good way to get the energy you need to go all day long is to stop during the day and take a nap. But, there are tricks to napping. If you nap incorrectly, you may even find that you are more tired than you were when you started, and that defeats the purpose, right? Instead of winding up feeling awful after a nap (which happens to most people), keep these tips in mind.

  • Trick yourself into falling asleep right away by sleeping on a bed pillow or putting something else around you that reminds you of nighttime sleep.
  • Set your alarm clock for 20 minutes, and do not go over this time no matter how tired you are. Why? If you wake up during the deep stage of sleep, you will feel extremely fatigued. The trick is to wake up before you reach that stage, and that usually happens between 20-30 minutes. You may have to experiment with an alarm clock at first, but you’ll get the hang of it.
  • Allow yourself to take the time out to nap. A lot of people feel guilty about napping, but you’ll wake feeling more refreshed than you did when you went to sleep. As a result, you will be more productive, and you will also think clearer. So, really, you should only feel guilty about not taking a nap!

Calming Your Mind at Night

Numerous studies have shown that playing with a phone or tablet before bedtime will keep you awake longer. The colors and screen intensity of a tablet or phone stimulate your brain, and this means that you will not sleep right away. So, the best way to begin sleeping properly is to ban any kind of device from your bedroom. Also, follow these tips:

  • Try and do something calming before bed like meditate or go through a special bedtime routine.
  • Use calming scents like lavender to soothe your body and mind.
  • Try taking a hot bath before bed, and then jumping right into bed.
  • Make sure that your room is completely dark, and that no light is allowed to enter into the room.
  • If it helps, wear an eye mask or listen to white noise while you sleep.

It can be difficult to calm your mind when there are so many things to think about, that’s for sure, but you can learn to sleep during stressful times if you make the effort to focus on your sleep cycles. Try napping correctly, getting into a bedtime routine, and letting those thoughts that are in your mind move in and out without dwelling on any one thing. It will also help if you have a team of moving professionals to help you out with every aspect of your move — there will be a lot less things to think about!

Working With the Right Moving Team

Many national moving companies like Exodus Moving and Storage provide full services. What are full moving services? Things like packing, unpacking, moving everything, and even moving heavy pieces of furniture to new spots in your home home when the move is complete. A professional team can also handle any shipping requirements, and can help you move even the largest items from one spot to another.

If you can’t fit everything into your new space, you can also rely on a company like Exodus to rent you reliable and secure storage spaces. Having somewhere to put all of that stuff will take a load off of your mind, and that means more sleep for you! If you are looking for Johnston movers, call the Exodus Moving and Storage team today for more details, a free rate quote, and additional information about what we can do for you. In the meantime, focus on getting the sleep that you need to have a carefree move!

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.

Strangest Places To Live

As movers in Boulder CO, we’ve heard of some strange places that people live. We’ve also scoured the Internet to compile a list of odd cities and places that you may find bizarre, but some people are happy to call home. If you’re in the mood for a new town, or a new home, take a look at these top strangest places to live — and call us if you need long distance moving company help.

Miyake-Jima, Japan: Miyake-Jima is a small island in Japan that’s complete with water, sunshine, and all of those things that make an island great — there’s just one caveat. This island is literally toxic. The volcano that sits on the island spews sulphuric gas that’s toxic most of the time. Residents are required to wear gas masks, and to carry those masks everyday. So, why would someone live there? Because the Japanese Government pays people a monthly stipend to live, survive, and record information about the island. Creepy!

Kowloon Walled City: Kowloon isn’t far from Hong Kong in China, but it couldn’t be more unique. This walled city looks like something from the set of a horror or sci-fi movie, but people actually lived inside of the city until some 30 years ago. Kowloon was a lawless land inhabited by outsiders that didn’t want to obey laws. After a while of letting the people of Kowloon live inside of the city, the Chinese Government finally tore it down, and forced all of the outlaws to move.

Lily Dale Assembly: In upstate New York is a community of mediums, healers, and those that talk to the dead. The town of Lily Dale is where you want to go for a reading or workshop on anything spiritual or past-life related. Right now, there are more than 200 inhabitants, but thousands pass through this town regularly.

Slab City, California: This is an old abandoned Marine base that’s actually turned into a city of sorts. The people that live in Slab City state that it is the “last free place on earth,” and there are no rules or laws in the city. In Slab City, there are no sewers, toilets, or any other town amenities (no running water either), but plenty of RVs and people looking to live completely off the grid.

Coober Pedy, Australia: At first glance, you might not see anything when you try to find this town. That’s because Coober Pedy is actually underground. Residents live in caves and inside of dug outs in this part of the Australian Outback. Why? Most people went to Coober Pedy in search of Opals, and wound up living underneath the ground because living about the ground was so hard to do due to harsh living conditions.

Chefchaouen: This Moroccan town was painted a pale blue (against white walls) by Jewish settlers that came to the town in the 1930s. The town is aglow in a blue haze, and it’s a popular tourist spot because of the blue hue.

Colma, CA: There are more graves and gravesites in Colma than there are living residents, but that doesn’t bother the 1800 or so people that live in the town.

Is CrossFit For You?

If you’re moving long distance, you’ll probably have to start all over, and that means finding a new gym. But before you sign up for that gym down the street, think about starting something new. In a new town, you can try anything, and you might even find that a new activity is exciting and just what you were looking for. This might lead you to wondering about CrossFit, and wondering if a CrossFit gym is for you. Here’s how to find out.

The Hype

CrossFit has largely become a popular sport due to backing by major companies like Reebok, and the surfacing of many different obstacle course races that tend to be populated by CrossFit members. Those that started the movement claim that it’s for anyone and everyone, but the truth is that some people might not love CrossFit, and others could find it very intimidating.

So, here’s how to figure out if you will love or hate this sport.

Beginner Weight Lifters

With all of those people lifting large weights, CrossFit can be very intimidating for first-time weight lifters. In fact, you might not get anything out of the program if you can’t hold a barbell above your head. If you can’t do a push up or lift anything (and have never tried), this is probably not the best place for you. You just might find a “box” that is very tolerant when it comes to beginners, though this is hard to do.

A Team Sport

CrossFitters tend to do everything together, and that includes hanging out together after work. If you really hate team efforts, this isn’t for you. On the flip side, if you love support and want to work with a community (great if you are moving long distance), CrossFit might just be what you want to do. The best advice is to try it out, see how cliquey the group is, and think about whether or not you can stand to be around those people all the time.

A Former Athlete

A lot of former athletes love CrossFit because it is both competitive and a group sport all rolled into one. If you are a former athlete of any kind, you may love the challenges that CrossFit includes. Plus, as a former athlete you may have some skills (jumping, swinging, lighting hard things, endurance) that other people may not have, so this will help you when it comes to competitions.

Some Advice

Take it from a girl that broke her ankle doing CrossFit – pick a CrossFit box that comes with really good and patient instructors. Also, make sure the people teaching you how to jump on a really high box know what they are doing. There is some danger that comes with any extreme sport, so keep this in mind at all times. Find out how long the people have been teaching, and don’t push yourself if you know that your body is exhausted – sometimes, pain is not gain.

How to Find a Box

Read reviews of the various CrossFit gyms in your area, and make sure to check out a few before you sign up for one. You’ll see that most are quite different!

Moving Long Distance

Are you ready for your move? If you are moving to Cherry Creek or anywhere else in Colorado, Exodus can help you get there. Call us if you are moving to Cherry Creek or Fort Collins or Denver or anywhere, and we’ll help you get all of your stuff to your new place — whether or not you should join a CrossFit box, well, that’s up to you!

How to Choose a Doctor

When you move, you have to change everything from where you will actually live to the primary care physician you have. While many people simply choose one doctor and stay with that doctor regardless of bedside manner or other details, you should know that you can shop around for a family doctor – and this is really an important step.

Just as anyone else that you may work with regularly (like a dentist or even a therapist), a doctor has to be a good fit for you. So, if you’ve moving to Highlands Ranch or anywhere else in the world, take a look at these tips for finding the perfect doctor before you settle.

  • Go with the right person for the job. Not all doctors are created equal, and some doctors are simply family physicians while others are general doctors or internal doctors. What’s the difference? Typically, family doctors focus on you and your entire family, and can do things like send you to specialists when needed. General doctors are kind of like family doctors, but general doctors can treat anyone of any age, and sometimes have specialties. Internal medicine doctors help with chronic diseases including the prevention and treatment of these diseases.
  • Find one that works with your insurance plan. Insurance companies work with different doctors and hospitals are discounted rates in order to provide clients with doctors that are called “in plan” doctors. Selecting one of these will help you keep bills down, and you can find the in-plan doctors in your area by calling your insurance company and asking for a list.
  • Make sure that you feel at ease with your doctor. When you’re moving to Highlands Ranch, you’ll want to find a doctor that you feel comfortable with. Chances are that this person will know your medical history inside and out, and that they will be the one you tell whenever you are facing a problem or medical concern. It’s important to really trust your doctor, so keep this in mind.
  • Find someone that you can easily get to. If you are moving to Highlands ranch for work purposes, you may want to find a doctor near your office. Sometimes, a doctor that’s near to your home is a good idea too, but being able to pop in and out of your doctor’s office while you are at work is never a bad thing. Sometimes you may be able to skip out of work early to visit with your doctor that’s right down the street.
  • Staff matters: it’s hard to deal with an aggressive or angry secretary every time you call your doctor’s office, so you may want to find a different doctor if your doctor’s staff is less than kind.

Be Picky

A good family or general doctor will be with you for life, so choose one that you can count on to be there when you need them. Plus, building a solid relationship with your doctor means feeling more comfortable about telling that person everything that is wrong with you physically. Find a doctor that you like, and you’ll feel a lot better about taking care of your body!

Call us today to find out more about why we are one of the best full service moving companies around, and we’ll be happy to give you a free quote.

How to Figure Out Where Home Is

As Fort Collins Colorado movers, we’ve seen a lot of people come and go. Many of those people have lived in other places before, and most have lived in multiple places. In fact, the average person moves more than five times in their lifetime, so figuring out where “home” is can be challenging. Yet, that question comes up time and again. People want to know where you’re from, and where you call home. How do you figure it out?

Where The Heart Is?

If you were to ask some people where home is, they might respond with the old adage “where the heart is,” but that’s also tricky to figure out. As Fort Collins Colorado movers, we’ve seen a lot of people moving to Fort Collins from other places that they loved, and they simply turn around and love what Colorado has to offer. So, moving to Fort Collins might mean placing your heart in a whole new spot, but it doesn’t negate the other spots where you lived and loved either.

Where You Grew Up?

Do you feel a certain attachment to the place that you grew up in? More often than not, people that are moving to Fort Collins do either because they grew up here, or are looking for a place far away from where they grew up. But it might stand to reason that the area where you first loved, walked, laughed, and knew the concept of family might always be home to you, though claiming your hometown as the place where you’re from might not go over too easily with those people that never left that town.

Where You Live Now?

How long do you have to live in a place in order to call it home? How long do you have to live somewhere before you can start cheering for the home sports team and telling people that you are from that city? Is there a time limit? Do you still feel like a traitor if you wear the NFL colors from your current state? It’s a hard thing to figure out, isn’t it?

What Your Passport Says?

What if you move to another country, but your passport states that you are from the country where you were born. Are you from there? Is that your home? Is that where you are from? What about the connections and bonds you’ve formed in your new town or new country? Are those relevant somehow?

Where It All Meshes Together

The truth is that most of us that have moved and lived in many places can call all of those spots home, and, yet, none of those places are home. You are the many places where you have lived, and you understand the many cultures you’ve lived with. So, when someone asks you where you call home, you might just tell them that you call the world home – and that you have many more homes to find and claim in the future.

Maybe this is why some people say that they are residents of the world, or simply people that live on the earth – it’s too hard to pick one spot, isn’t it? If you are moving to Fort Collins, let us help you get to your new home by packing, shipping, and unpacking your things because sometimes you just need a hand in order to call a new place your temporary home. Call us today for a free estimate.

What do you think? Where should you call home, and where do you identify with the most?

Ways to Make Your Apartment Look Bigger (Without Spending A Lot)

There are many different reasons to choose an apartment. You may have found a place that’s in a great location, is the right price, or is near to your office, but finding the best apartment for your situation doesn’t necessarily mean that the space you chose is bright or big or ideal when it comes to things like light and space.

Since you’re also somewhat limited when it comes to what you can actually change inside of your apartment (it’s hard to knock down walls without getting a few complaints from your landlord!), the best way to make your space look bigger and brighter is with some really helpful decorating tips.

If you’re looking for moving companies in Fort Collins, call Exodus Moving and Storage – but if you’re looking for some great ways to make your apartment look better on the cheap, check out the tips below.

Pick the right paint: if you live in a massive mansion with large walls and high ceilings, darker mustard yellow and brown colors might make sense and look appealing. If you’re trying to make a small apartment look bigger, though, you’ll want to go with light and white colors. As a general rule of thumb, brighter colors make a space look bigger.

Think about painting the floors too: this one might not be okay with your landlord, so make sure to ask first, but painting floors a bright white color can open up a space as well. Painting floors is not as simple as painting walls, though, so make sure to hire an expert to help you, or do your research first.

Go with minimalist furniture options: the best trick for making a space seem larger but still storing all of your things is to try and keep everything off of the floor as much as possible. By hanging shelves instead of putting bookshelves on the floor and keeping the furniture that is on the floor to pieces that are minimalist, you can really trick the eye into seeing a much bigger space.

Think about hanging some lights: is your bedroom space too small for floor or table lamps? You can always hang wall sconces to still give you the reading light that you need, but without all of that clutter that a table or floor lamp would create. The biggest mistake that people make when it comes to small bedroom spaces is placing large tables on either side of an already cramped bed – plus, you can buy a larger bed and frame if you move your stuff off of the floor.

Don’t go for heavy paintings or other dark decor: keep any artwork that you place inside of your home light and minimalist – or don’t use any art at all. There’s something to be said for the cleanliness of bare white walls, or rooms with shelves that are kept neat. Try and skip the artwork if you want a room that’s clean and clutter-free. Plus, no artwork means opening up a space, so that you can trick anyone into thinking that your room is bigger than it actually is.

Of course, before you get to your new apartment space to decorate it, you will have to find the right moving companies in Fort Collins to choose from. This is where Exodus Moving and Storage comes in. As a full service moving company, we know a thing or two about getting your stuff where it needs to go, and getting it there in good shape.

How to Decorate for the Holidays

If you’ve already booked the Fort Collins moving company that you plan to use, and you’ve found the best long distance moving company around (Exodus, of course!), you’re probably ready to move into your new home and start the holiday season in your new place. That, of course, means decorating your home for the holidays, but we’re not talking about a large inflatable Rudolph here. We’re talking about the inside of your home, which can be so much more than silver and pale whites!

Have you ever wondered how magazines make holiday decor so inviting and festive? Part of it has to do with color, which is surprisingly something that most people don’t think about when they plan inside holiday decor. So, let’s talk about adding some color to the inside of your home this holiday season!

Getting the Color Right

Think for a moment about the colors of the holiday season, and you may think about blues, whites, reds, and greens, right? But, what about some other colors? What about different shades of red, or a splash of red against a silver background? Play with color so that you create something unique – you don’t have to go with elf green or Santa red!

Consider One Area of Color

Okay, so maybe you’re not the type to put splashes of red all over the house, and that’s okay. Another really great way to incorporate some holiday color is to think about an accent wall or other accent area. If the rest of your home is decked out in silver and white, for example, a wall that includes some deep red or green or silver may be just the thing to change it all up a bit.

If you haven’t called a long distance moving company yet, and you’re still in the process of selling your home, a nice and neat accent area that incorporates some of those holiday colors may be just the thing that people will love to see when they walk in your house during a viewing. Some people aren’t crazy about decorations, so you can really confine your holiday cheer to one area and still please buyers.

Go With Gold

How often do you see gold hues around the holiday season instead of silver ones? Sometimes, just making that much of a change can be a really good way to mix things up. You’d be surprised at how great decorations can look when gold is used against deep forest greens. Plus, small gold accents look fabulous – just make sure not to go overboard with the gold!

Look at All Areas

From your tabletops to your fireplace, holiday accents can really go anywhere. Even simple things like red berries in a tall glass vase look amazing this time of year. Also, don’t forget the scents! There’s nothing like the smell of gingerbread or a candle that smells like a Christmas tree. This time of year, there are plenty of holiday scented candles around too, so you can easily pick one up – and before you know it, your home will be sold, and you’ll be calling that long distance moving company thanks to that amazing scent!
