How to Find Moving Boxes

If you’re moving to Denver, Exodus Moving and Storage can help you when it comes to moving supplies like boxes, packing wrap, bubble wrap, and other necessary items to assist you with your move. But if you’d rather find these things on your own, there are some places that you can find boxes to help with your move.

It used to be that you could simply walk into a grocery store, ask for boxes, and take a bunch home with you. But this is no longer the case. Now, stores keep or recycle those boxes, and this means that you may not get any. So, where else can you find moving boxes? Here are some places to find boxes that you may not have thought of.

Bars, Liquor Store, and Pubs: These establishments often have a lot of extra boxes laying around. When shipments come into a bar or restaurant, boxes abound. Ask a local bar owner or pub owner if they have a few extra boxes that you can have for your move. Liquor stores deal almost exclusively in cardboard  boxes, some owners will keep them for just this purpose.

Ask your friends and family members: Know someone that’s just moved, or someone that may have a few extra boxes laying around? Put a notice out on Facebook, and ask the world if they have a box or two that they can lend to you.

Check sites like Craig’s List: Some community sites may include posts from people that want to give away boxes. Often, people don’t know what to do with boxes after a move, and giving them away seems like the best possible thing. If you can’t find any for free, you may be able to buy a bunch off of someone that no longer needs them.

Check with a school in your area: Textbooks and teaching supplies come in boxes, and that means lots of leftover boxes for you to use. Ask a local school if they have a box or three that you can take.

Consider Other Options

There are other ways to pack up items that don’t involve boxes. You can use cloth packaging, or you can use reusable boxes which are a much greener option. While boxes are the norm, you don’t have to use them at all. Consider other choices that may be much more environmentally friendly, and much easier to use and find. Plus, with reusable boxes, you can simply pack them away, and use them again another day.

Our Boxes and Packing Options

At Exodus Moving and Storage, we are more than happy to provide you with boxes and other packing materials, so make sure to ask us about your options when it comes to what we have to offer. Since we’ve been moving people for many years now, we know a thing or two about packing, and we’re more than happy to help you out! Call us to ask about the packing items that we have for you–and to find out about our rates, and how we work.

Moving One Thing? Call Your Boulder Movers!

Did you know that you can call professional movers even if you aren’t moving? What do we mean by this? Have you ever had something in your home that’s just too big or heavy to move on your own? If you’ve ever been stuck with something as heavy as a treadmill that you’ve had to move down three flights of stairs, you know just how difficult it can be to move things around the place where you currently live – and this is where professional movers can help.

Why Hiring Movers Makes Sense

Plenty of people recruit friends to move heavy objects, but this is hard to do if you don’t have friends that can handle the weight, or if some of your friends have back problems. There’s also the possibility that the thing you are trying to move might become broken if someone drops it, or that your friends might not be able to move that item at all once the moving day comes.

Professional movers, on the other hand, can easily move a heavy object from one place to the next in a short amount of time. Not only can movers get the object where it needs to go quickly, but you don’t have to worry about damage, hurting someone’s back, or not being able to move the item once it’s time to actually move — more often than not, friends gather to move something that just won’t budge, no matter how hard they try!

Not Just for Full Moving Jobs

Moving companies in Fort Collins are often thought of when it comes to moving an entire home or business from one spot to the next. The reality is, though, that movers can help you move anything that’s heavy and requires professional equipment. The moving team at Exodus has helped people move items from one room to another, move heavy objects down stairs and into people’s cars, and can help with any other type of moving.

When you’re faced with the problem of moving something heavy for any purpose, don’t take a chance and hope that your friends can help. A professional moving team might not be free like your friends are (hopefully!), but professional movers can get the job done quickly and correctly, so that you can continue doing whatever it is that you need to get done.

When to Call

Typically, the high season for most moving companies happens during the summer months, since the weather during these months is optimal for moving. If you do have something in your home that you need to move, it’s probably best to call a moving company during the fall or winter months to move that object. That said, if you call ahead, you can book movers for an hour or so easily enough. The trick is to plan out the move, so that both you and the movers have the time to prepare.

The Cost

How much does it cost to have professional movers move one object? Most moving companies charge based on an hourly rate when it comes to moving items, and you can gain a free estimate when you call a moving company. If you only have one item to move, you will typically be charged for one hour of time (standard). But, this rate could fluctuate depending on the season and your location — also, things like the number of flights of stairs you have in your home will make a difference when it comes to that moving estimate.

If you need a moving company in Colorado, call Exodus Moving and Storage today. We can also provide you with storage space rates, in case you want to store the item that you are thinking about moving.

Moving While Pregnant: Some Tips

If you’ve just found out that you have to move, and you’re many months pregnant, you may be wondering how it’s all possible. After all, moving requires some effort, and you may not have a ton of energy right now. Is there any way that you can make the move easier on yourself and your body? Here are some tips from our Boulder movers.

Move as early in your pregnancy as possible. Moving at eight or nine months is really hard to do, so plan a move as early as you can if it’s feasible.

Find a moving company that offers full services like packing, assembling furniture, and other services that will make your life much simpler during the move.

Be careful not to strain yourself. Leave the heavy lifting for the Loveland movers that you have hired, and just pack the light things. If you feel tired or overly worked, just sit down and relax, or take a quick nap. The key is to listen to your body as much as possible, so that you know when you’ve had too much.

Stay hydrated. Whether you’re moving during the winter or summer months, your body needs lots of fluids right now. Keep hydrated as much as possible.

Leave the unpacking for later. You don’t have to unpack your stuff right after you move, and all of those things can wait until after the baby is born — you can even set up a makeshift nursery. Kids are resilient, so don’t worry about not having the perfect nursery space.

Put the things that you need right away in a safe spot. You may want to keep your personal items and the things that you will need for the baby in an easily accessible space. This way, you don’t have to wade through boxes and packing foam to try and find what you need.

Take the help that’s offered. Now is not the time to try and do it all on your own. If your friends want to help out, let them.

Ask your friends to help you pack. You can turn any packing day into a packing party, and invite all of your friends over to help you pack up all of your things. Not only is this a fun way to pack, it’s also an easy way to get everything where it needs to go.

Work With Your Moving Company

As a moving company in Fort Collins, we’ve seen more than a few moves that have involved a baby, a pregnant mother, and some other situations. So, let us know where you need to go, what your timeline is, and how much help you need. We offer full service moving options, so we can help you with everything from packing to unpacking, and even assembling furniture for you. Whatever you do, don’t try and move anything too heavy by yourself while you are pregnant — that’s what we’re for!

Having to move while expecting might seem like an impossible task, but we can help you with everything that you need. The important thing is that you rest when you need to, and that you take your time when it comes to packing and unpacking. A lot of new moms move, so you’re in good company, and we can help you with whatever you need moved, no matter where you want to go. Call us today for a free estimate, or to find out what we can do as far as full service moving goes.

We also have storage spaces in both Fort Collins and Denver, in case you need to store any items that you can’t fit into your new home.

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.

Thinking Outside The Box: When You’re Through With Your Moving Boxes

Today, everyone’s looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste in our landfills. You’re stuck with all of these empty boxes once you’ve unpacked in your new home, but you want to more than merely recycle them.

No problem! Here are some ways to put those boxes to good use after moving day.

  • Trick or treat. If you have kids, you might have had so much on your plate during them move, you’ve forgotten about their Halloween costumes. Never fear, the boxes can save you! You probably have a decent range of sizes, so get to work creating their costumes using the boxes as a base, or put your kids to work to do it themselves. A big enough box can make a great ice cream truck or tractor, while identical twins would make a great set of dice! Get creative, and hit the internet if you are at a loss for ideas.
  • Storage. Why buy expensive storage totes, when these boxes will fit the bill perfectly? Of course, if you’re storing things in a damp basement you might want to rethink this, but an attic, closet, or storage unit can accommodate boxes nicely without harming the contents. Take all of your boxes and break them down for storage, and anytime you accumulate stuff you feel like putting away, just pull out a box and reassemble it.
  • Laundry basket. Re-purposing at its finest – you can even cut some handles on the side to carry it from your room to the laundry room!
  • Filing cabinet. If you have a lot of papers to file, you don’t need to spend money on a fancy filing cabinet. Just grab a box and store important paperwork in boxes! This is a great way to store instruction manuals to your electronics and appliances, tax documents, and even family photos. Just make sure that they cannot be damaged by moisture.
  • Imagination encouragement. These days, it seems kids just don’t have imaginations like they used to. When they’re stuck inside on a rainy or snowy day, just dig out some boxes and let them go to town. I remember as a child when my friends and I would play Barbies and turn cardboard boxes into shopping malls, tacking clothing “on display” to the sides of the boxes. Large boxes become forts, and boys will turn any size box into a vehicle. Encourage them to unplug with a box!
  • Car organizer. Even if you don’t have kids, chances are the trunk of your car could use a little organizing. A box is a great way to keep your antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, and spare quarts of oil from rolling around willy nilly, and can keep a spare blanket and other emergency supplies exactly where you need it.
  • Gift box. Why purchase expensive gift boxes this Christmas when you can just recycle a moving box? Skip the wrapping paper and let the kids paint them up festively!
  • Light box. If you enjoy photography, you can use a box and some white paper or tin foil top make a makeshift light box. This will allow you to take stunning still life pictures, whether your latest culinary endeavor or pictures for a product you sell in your Etsy store. This is especially handy in areas where inclement weather makes it impossible to put natural lighting to use.
  • School projects. Whether a science project for the science fair or a diorama for history homework, there comes a time in a child’s life when they will require a cardboard box for some kind of project. Have these on hand, and you’ll always be prepared, sparing yourself from last minute trips to acquire a box!
  • Makeshift table. When I was a broke college student and short on table space to display candles and other fun stuff I had acquired, I simply turned cardboard boxes upside down and covered them with a pretty sheet acquired at the thrift store.
  • Floor saver. Looking to spare your floors, but need to reorganize the furniture in the room? Don’t purchase expensive felt pads – cut custom floor savers from your cardboard boxes. Your floors are scratch-free, and you don’t have to spend a dime!
  • Harvest collectors. If you grow a vegetable garden or have fruit trees, you can use a box to collect your fruits and vegetables ripe for the picking.
  • Oil spill protection. Have a slow leak, and can’t get your car in the shop for another week or two? Just slip a broken down box to catch the drips in order to protect your garage floor or driveway.
  • Pet bed. Your cat probably loves your empty boxes anyway, why not throw in a pillow or some soft bedding and let her use it as a pet bed?
  • Shipping. If you have a lot of long distance relatives, you’ll want to hold onto those boxes just to reuse for shipping out gifts and other things. Much better than buying the boxes at the post office or office supply store!

If you are looking for movers in Fort Collins, give us a call. Not only are we movers in Fort Collins, but we also have storage space for rent. Call us for a free moving quote, or ask us about a free moving quote on Facebook. When it comes to movers in Fort Collins, Exodus is your best choice!

Living Out of a Suitcase? Here’s How to Still Look Great

As movers in Fort Collins, we know how hard it is to live out of a suitcase. But, that’s probably where you’ll be before you have the time to unpack all of your boxes. It can be hard living out of a suitcase, but we have some tips that will make this process simpler – take a look.

  • Keep the colors basic. You may love those patterned hippie pants you have, but unless all of your tops are white or black, they’ll be hard to wear on vacation. Keep bottoms black and tops white or other basic colors.
  • Wear and pack real fabrics. Do not pack anything synthetic in that one suitcase, or you’ll wind up looking wrinkled. Keep it to cotton and other natural fabrics that don’t wrinkle easily.
  • Keep everything you absolutely need in your suitcase. You don’t want to paw through boxes or wait until your movers in Fort Collins unpack all of your stuff to find your makeup or hair dryer.
  • Pack a little black dress in your suitcase. If you find one that straddles the line between casual and dressy, you can dress it up or down. You’d be surprised how much mileage you can get from a black dress.
  • Pack some sandals and some dressier shoes and some sneakers. These are three types of shoes that you will want to have on hand at all times.
  • Make sure your jewelry is within reach, or just some of it. You can really dress up an outfit (even one that you’ve worn a million times) by putting some jewelry with it. Toss some of your favorite pieces into the suitcase, and you’ll feel much better when you have to live out of that bag.
  • Wash your clothes when you can. You can buy small travel detergent packs, and all you really need is a bathtub or laundrymat. The cleaner your clothes look, the most put together you look.
  • Hang up your clothes right away. If possible, grab some hangers and hang your stuff immediately. This will prevent your clothes from wrinkling.
  • Buy some dewrinkler spray. What? They make this? Yes, they do! You can buy a bottle of spray that will get rid of wrinkles. All you have to do is spray it on your clothes, and then you’re good to go.

Keeping it Together

When you arrive in your new home town, the last thing that you will probably want to do is unpack, right? Well, we can help you with that. As a full service moving company, we can unpack and pack for you, so that you don’t have to live out of your luggage for long. Call your movers in Fort Collins to book a moving date or to get a free moving quote. You can also find us on Facebook if you want to book an appointment for a review of the things that you have to move, and to get your free moving quote.

You can live out of a suitcase and look great, you just have to know the tricks! Do you have any tips to share with others? Let us know by leaving a note on this blog, or find us on Facebook. We’re sure there are some travelers out there that are pros when it comes to living out of a suitcase, and we’d love to hear from you!

Reasons Not to Move In With Your Boyfriend

Denver moving companies can move you in and out of the home you share with your boyfriend all day or year long, but you may want to think twice about moving in with your boyfriend. Here are some reasons why living separately can be better.

  1. Keeping mystery in a relationship is really hard to do when you see someone every day all day and all night. Making sure that some things are private can add to that mystery, but keeping things under wraps is nearly impossible to do when you live together. Mystery plays into romance, so keep that in mind when you think about moving in together.
  2. You may have to say goodbye to your independence. Some couples successfully lead both separate lives and couple lives, but few succeed in this. You’re pretty much going to be spending every occasion with your boyfriend the moment you move in, and he may be around on girl’s night because he has nowhere else to go.
  3. Jealousy may start to pop up. If you’ve always hung out with your best guy friend on Friday nights, that is about to change. The person you live with may decide against this ritual, and you’ll have a hard time changing his mind.
  4. Romance doesn’t go with toothbrushes and mouth guards. You can’t easily disguise those parts of you that you aren’t ready to share when you move in with a guy. All of those things he didn’t know about before will go out the window.
  5. Intimacy may take a back burner. Right now, you can meet up for exciting dates in exciting places, but you probably won’t make these kinds of intimate dates when you live together – you’ll already be in the same place, and that place is likely to be on the couch watching TV.
  6. You’ll quickly see the light of day. The first few weeks of living together may be a lot of fun, but that will soon wear off. After that point, you’ll have to face the marriage issue, and it will be really hard to avoid thinking about.
  7. Leaving will be a lot harder. It’s hard to end any relationship, but it’s a lot harder to end one if you live with the person you’re breaking up with. Who knows, you may not break up, and you could wind up engaged instead, but the opposite might also happen. If you do break up, calling Denver moving companies will be the easy part!
  8. You may feel pressured into marriage. So many couples move in together and then get married after a period of time because “what else was there to do?” You know deep down whether or not this is the right next move, right? But, it will be tougher not to move to that next step if you already live together.
  9. You can still show up at his place whenever you want to right now, and avoid him when you want some alone or girl time. If you live in the same spot, forget it. You’ll have to see him all the time, even if you’d rather be alone.

Moving In

If you do decide that moving in is the right thing to do, and you want to test the waters, set a time limit. Decide after one year or five months whether or not you want to spend more time with this person. If not, move out and move on. If so, you may be ready for that next step. Either way, calling Denver moving companies to help you with the move (in or out) is the next thing to do.

At Exodus, we will give you a moving quote when we come to see your place, and you can rest assured that our moving quote won’t change. So, even if you are moving out instead of moving in (or can’t make up your mind), we’re here for you.

Cleaning Up a Gross Bathroom

Buying an old fixer-upper can really pay off if you find a home with great old bones that just needs a bit of love. But one of the most common trouble spots in an old home is an old bathroom. Some old bathrooms really need a lot of work when it comes to tiling and other trouble spots, and some just need a lot of elbow grease. If you’ve gone through all of the national moving companies, found Exodus, and have just moved into your new home, here are some of the ways that you can clean up that cruddy bathroom space.

The Shower

Okay, let’s be honest, a shower that’s cruddy and dirty looking is the last place that you want to step into to clean yourself, right? So, start with the shower and bath area when you begin to clean your older bathroom. A good trick is to put some vinegar in a plastic bag with a bit of water, tie the bag to the top nozzle of your shower head, leave it overnight, and run the shower in the morning – vinegar is pretty powerful stuff if you let it do its thing.

If you mix vinegar with baking soda, you can use this paste (do not wet it until you are ready to rinse it) on the inside of any shower doors, tubs, or other surfaces. Grab some green scrubbing pads, and get to work covering the inside of your shower with the paste. After scrubbing, your shower should look much better. To prevent future build up, clean any surfaces that are covered by water after a shower, and always leave a window open to let the room air out.

The Floors

Depending on the types of floors in your bathroom, you can either mop the floors with something like vinegar or a strong cleaning agent, or you can simply vacuum the floors. If you find that the caulking around the bathtub and toilet area needs to be redone, strip it and redo it – caulking can collect an amazing amount of dirt, grime, and dust, so it’s best to rip it up and redo it if you don’t like the way it looks (this is an easy project).

The Toilet

Whether or not you should replace the toilet completely is up to you, but a good rule is to consider the stains at the bottom of the bowl. Can those stains be cleaned, or do you have to really remove the entire thing in order to get rid of the stains? Some older toilets will simply be stained beyond scrubbing, and you may want to just replace those. You can use the same vinegar and baking powder paste mixture to clean your toilet space too. Just make sure to get underneath the rims and cover to clean it thoroughly.

The Walls

Older homes tend to have tile walls, and these require tile cleaner to thoroughly clean. Scrub away! You can really transform an older bathroom, too, by getting rid of older fixtures and putting in new options. Some older bathrooms add a lot of style to a home as well, so don’t simply get rid of everything at once. Try and work with what you have by cleaning it the best that you can, and then get rid of those things that you can work with.

National Moving Companies

Exodus is a Colorado moving company, but we can move you anywhere you want to go. We’re also happy to provide you with information about our Colorado moving company before you move, so feel free to call us if you have any questions about our Colorado moving company.

Decluttering: Getting Rid of Old Cosmetics

At Exodus Moving and Storage, we want to help you with all aspects of moving from packing and unpacking to getting where you need to go. One part of moving is uncluttering your home before you start packing, and that can mean (for the ladies!) getting rid of some old cosmetics.

If you haven’t gone through your cosmetics in a while, there’s no better time to do so than right before you move – why bother moving a bunch of stuff that you really don’t need anymore, or just isn’t good? After all, the residential moving companies that you are going to call will have one less thing to move if you get rid of some stuff!

Here are some of our best tips for getting rid of old makeup, creams, and other things!

  1. Mascaras and eyeliners that are more than six months old should just be tossed out. You can save one clean brush from a mascara tube for your eyebrows (a really cheap way of repurposing the brush for an eyebrow comb!), but the rest of those tubes should be thrown out.
  2. Lip glosses and liners that are more than one year old should be thrown out. Lipstick is up to you – typically, lipstick that is more than a year old can be thrown out too, but few of us use entire tubes of lipstick that are vivid or for special occasions in one year, so you can hang onto those as long as they are in good shape.
  3. Pressed powder doesn’t last more than two years – if it has started to crack and cake, it’s time to toss it.
  4. Eyeshadow tends to last longer, so you can hang onto this unless you hate the color, and then you should just toss it. (Then why did you buy it in the first place?)
  5. Nail polish will start to separate and look really strange after about a year, so you may want to get rid of any polish when this begins to happen. Take a good look at your nail polish collection, and just get rid of those things that don’t look all that appealing.
  6. Any kind of liquid foundation shouldn’t be kept past three years. If you have some older foundation that you’re still hanging onto, it’s probably going to make your face break out! So, get rid of that liquid foundation if it has surpassed its shelf life (tip: keep foundations in the refrigerator for longer shelf life!).
  7. Sponges: really, don’t keep any sponges for more than a week. After one week, makeup sponges simply start to gather bacteria, and that’s definitely not good for your complexion!
  8. Perfumes: experts say that most perfumes start to lose their scent after one year, but if you’ve spent a lot of money on a perfume bottle, nobody can blame you for keeping it longer than that period of time. Instead, just throw away perfume that no longer smells the same or has lost its scent completely.

When to Toss

We all buy makeup that we never wear. Sometimes its a strange shade that we thought we loved but really didn’t, and sometimes we just never wind up wearing what we bought (because everything looks better in that huge makeup store, right?). Either way, getting rid of any makeup that you just don’t wear makes sense. You don’t have to throw it away if you have someone to give it to (would your friend, sister, or mother like those things that you no longer like?), or you can simply put it in the recycling.

Taking the time to go through all of your cosmetics is a really good way to clean up your makeup bag before you move, and this way you will have less to move (and more room to add stuff to your bag!). While we can’t help you with makeup, we can help you when it comes to moving boxes, packing, unpacking, and even storage. Exodus Moving and Storage is one of the top residential moving companies with storage space in both Fort Collins and Denver that you can rent and use, so give Exodus Moving and Storage a call today.

How to Move Your Hanging Clothes

There are two ways to move a closet full of clothes. You can remove everything from its respective hanger, and place both the clothes and the hangers in boxes. Or, you can simply move all hanging clothes with the hanger still attached. We recommend the later, since it takes up a lot less space, is simpler to do, and your clothes will be ready to be hung when you arrive at your new destination.

Here’s how to hang your clothes without removing the hanger from your Fort Collins movers.

You Will Need:

1. Hanger

2. Regular garbage bag

3. Clothes on hangers

To Move With Success:

1. Leave the clothes hanging in your closet.

2. Open the trash bag, and place the bottom of the bag around the clothes, so that all clothes are inside of the bag (leave the hanger tops poking out of the bag).

3. Tie off the end of the bag once it is securely over the pile of clothes.

4. Carefully remove the entire batch from your closet.

From there, you can simply move the entire bag of clothes from your current home to your new home quickly and simple. Best of all, when you get to yoru new home, all you have to do is hang the clothes, and remove the garbage bag. How simple is that?

Other Fun Moving Tips

As your Fort Collins movers, we’ve seen a lot of different moving tips and tricks. Here are a few that we think will make your job packing up your home simpler.

– Tape screws and nails to the backs of anything that hangs – whether its a mirror or a clock, having all the hardware in place makes things easier.

– Label everything clearly. Place room labels on all items, so that you (and your Fort Collins movers) will know where to put all of those boxes.

– Move pets and plants first: anything that could be hard to move or might cause some trauma (like moving a pet) should be brought to your new home first. This way, you don’t have to worry about upsetting a pet or tipping over a plant during the move.

– Make moving fun. Consider playing games when you pack, turning the whole trip into a fun game, or stocking up on road games to play during the move.

– Prepare in advance. Perhaps one of the best tips we can give you is to prepare for your move in advance, so that you aren’t scrambling at the last minute.

– Work with experienced movers. As your Fort Collins movers, we will make sure that we are on time, that all things are moved expertly, and that you know all of the details well in advance.

Whether you’re looking for a long distance moving company or a company to help you move locally, we can help. Find us on Facebook for more information about our long distance moving company services, or to ask us anything!

Valuing Feedback

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

Competitive and Accurate Estimates

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