How to Buy a Mattress

Are you moving long distance? If you are, you may not want to bring your old mattress with you to your new place. That means that you’ll have to buy a new mattress, but walking into mattress store after store is really an odd experience. It’s difficult to sit on a mattress for a few minutes, and figure out if it’s the one that won’t hurt your back in a week or so. Sure, stores offer return policies on mattresses, but returning a mattress is kind of hard to do too (and most of us never get around to doing it, right?).

To help clear up some of the mattress confusion that can result from moving long distance, here are some ways to buy a mattress without frustration.

  • Don’t pick a mattress according to color and style. Have you ever noticed that some mattresses have fancy black or pink or other colored signs strewn across them, and some even say things like “the Royal Suite mattress?” Yeah, that’s all marketing. Don’t buy a mattress based on the names that companies create – that’s the most important rule, and it’s the one thing that most people ignore the most too.
  • Never buy a mattress that doesn’t come with a guaranty. Some stores will try to sell you a cheaper mattress that doesn’t have a guarantee, but it takes weeks to really break in a new mattress, so make sure you have at least thirty days.
  • Note that a mattress only lasts ten years. If someone tries to sell you something that will “last a lifetime,” don’t buy into this line at all.
  • Skip the mattress pad, the mattress spray, and the other extras. You can just buy the mattress, and there’s a good chance that you don’t need a pad or spray or anything else. And if you are buying a mattress pad, why not just go for a softer mattress?
  • Think about the coil type and steel thickness – not the coil counts, which is why most salespeople tend to talk about.
  • If you sweat a lot at night, you may want to look into natural fibers – a mattress that isn’t made of natural fibers will make you sweat more, so that’s something to think about if it’s hot in your bedroom or if you happen to sweat while you sleep.
  • Most people that don’t like a mattress in the store won’t like it when they get that mattress home either, and it’s within the interest of the salesperson to sell you something that you will like, or you’ll just return it. So, it’s not a bad idea to listen to a sales person.

How About Negotiating?

When it comes to mattresses, or any other large item really, manufacturers simply set the same price across the board for every retailer out there. Some retailers sell mattresses higher, but most simply sell them at the lowest possible price, so you might not be able to negotiate unless you are buying more than one mattress. Unlike cars, most retailers won’t negotiate when it comes to mattresses, but you can always try your luck!

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!

Speaking of Fort Collins movers, give us a call if you are looking to move anywhere in the world! We’re more than happy to help you pack and get where you need to go, and we’ll also give you a free estimate. You can find your Fort Collins movers on Facebook too, so make sure to connect with us there.

Thanksgiving In Your New Home: You Can Do It!

The Fort Collins moving company has come and gone, leaving a sea of boxes in its wake. As you survey the scene, you become more and more discouraged – how are you going to make good on your offer to host Thanksgiving with so much to do?

It can seem daunting at first, but since you picked the right residential moving company to do all the heavy lifting (and we thank you!), you are still energized and ready to tackle the task at hand – prepping for the first Thanksgiving in your new home without losing your sanity. Here are some tips to impress your loved ones this year, tricking them into thinking you have it all together, even when you feel like a hot mess.

Comprise A Game Plan

I’m not talking about recipes and grocery lists (although you will want a plan regarding these aspects). You need to figure out what’s most important – having a kitchen to cook in, a place for guests to hang while they wait, and the table everyone can gather around to eat off of.

Because you looked for the best company out of all the Fort Collins moving companies, and followed our tips for marking all of your boxes, you know that everything that belongs in the kitchen is in the kitchen. They made sure your dining room table ended up exactly where you wanted it, along with your living room or family room furnishings. This is a plus – it saves so much time when you don’t have to move the big stuff yourself!

The most important thing is to make sure the boxes are clear from the kitchen. Start here and don’t stop until all boxes are unpacked, broken down, and removed from the area. Once you’ve taken care of this, you can move on to the other rooms. Is it important to you to have your décor perfectly in place? While you might feel the urge to pull out every knick-knack, picture, and candle, will your guests really care?

Let’s be honest – everyone has moved, so they’ll all understand if things aren’t perfectly in place. Of course, if it’s going to stress you out to no end that these items were left packed away, go ahead and unpack them. Just know that your relatives aren’t going to care. They’re just there for the food and pie!

Delegate

If you have a family, that significantly decreases the amount of time you are stuck unpacking and arranging everything. Put everyone to work, splitting up tasks between everyone based on what they can handle. You don’t want everyone all in the kitchen at the same time (you know the old saying about too many cooks in the kitchen, right? Don’t spoil the soup!). If you have young children, you can have them work on their arranging their bedrooms to keep them out of your way.

You should also consider delegating menu items. Just because you’re hosting the feast doesn’t mean you can’t ask people to bring a dish! Have your Aunt Ida bring her famous, can’t-live-without-it apple pie, and Uncle Raymond can bring the pork stuffing everyone craves at Thanksgiving. This takes less off of your plate, leaving you more time to make sure your house is in order.

Don’t Panic

So the big day is here, and all of a sudden, you’ve realized you’ve ruined a side dish. Your dog ate the stuffed celery. You forgot to buy the cranberries to make the cranberry sauce. Whatever you do, don’t have a meltdown! Everyone knows you’ve just moved.

They aren’t going to stress too much if you forgot one little side dish or appetizer! Let it go, and remember what Thanksgiving is all about – gathering together with friends and family to celebrate what you’re thankful for. If something stressful occurs and you find yourself turning towards the dark side, laugh it off. You’ll be surprised how much your mood improves!

You can move into your new home and host Thanksgiving dinner in the same month, as long as you are prepared and ask for the help that you need. Of course, moving companies in Fort Collins help a lot!

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!

Making a New Home Easier for Allergy Sufferers

Have you just found an amazing old home that you absolutely love, but you’re worried that the person suffering from major allergens in your family will not love the house as much? Don’t worry! There are plenty of things that you can do to make sure that the home you are moving into is allergy-free. As one of the top Denver moving companies, we’ve seen a lot of dusty old homes, and we know a thing or two about how to make those great old places better for people that suffer from allergies – here are our best tips!

Frequency of Cleaning

With busy schedules, it can be really hard to make time to clean, right? That’s completely understandable, but someone that suffers from bad allergies has to live in a home that’s pretty clean. That means that your house has to be cleaned at least once per week. So, get into the habit of cleaning the home that you are moving into once per week, and be sure to clean your home directly after hiring one of the many Denver moving companies – just to be sure that there’s no dirt left behind.

Cleaning The Floors

Floors can pick up all kinds of things from small particles of dirt that we can see to stuff like pet dander that we can’t see. It is recommended that you clean your floors before you move into your home with a mixture of floor cleaner and hot water. Allergy experts recommend using a clean mop with warm water to clean the floors, so something like a spray cleaning device might not be the right thing to use if you have a family member suffering from allergies – use a mop instead, but be sure to replace that mop regularly.

The Things We Can’t See

Dust is the biggest problem for people with allergies, and dust can really creep up on you! Try to move around your new home and think about the areas that you can’t see – those are the ones that often have the most dust. Places such as windowsills, tops of doors, ceiling fans, tops of cabinets, counter or above counter spaces, and other areas that are hidden from view are the places where that dust will settle every time. If you add these spaces to your regular cleaning routine, you can be sure to get every piece of dust.

Temperatures

Did you know that bacteria and dust and other allergy provokers like warm and humid spaces? If you keep your home at a cooler temperature all year long (under 70 degrees), you can cut down on bacteria. Keeping your home drier is a good idea too, since humidity breeds bacteria and dust.

Professional Help

In addition to looking for Denver moving companies when you are ready to move, consider hiring a professional cleaning company to thoroughly clean your home before you move into it. Professional cleaners can often reach and find areas that most of us never even think about. When it comes to move, keep in mind that Exodus is a long distance moving company, so we can help you move anywhere that you are going – but we can’t help you with cleaning, so make sure that’s done before the move, just in case.

6 Mistakes When Hiring A Moving Company And How To Avoid Them

The key to making sure that a move goes smoothly is preparation. While saving a buck on Denver moving companies is important, there are things that you can’t afford to skimp on. Here’s a look at some common moving mistakes people make when hiring a moving company.

  1. Moving at the wrong time. It’s not uncommon for moving companies to charge more during peak seasons. That moving company in Denver you’re looking at may be charging more during the last week of August than if you were to request a quote for the second week in January. People aren’t as likely to plan a move in the dead of winter, so rates will be a bit lower than that busy back-to-college period at the end of the summer. If you can stand to wait a week or two, you may find that it saves you a bundle!
  2. Waiting until the last minute. This might not seem like a big deal, but think about it – the more time you have to research and plan, the more likely you’ll be getting the best deal from Denver moving companies. If you wait until the last possible minute, there will be more pressure to simply make a choice for the sake of hiring someone to do the job, and then you’ll find out that you went with a less reputable and professional company. Further, contacting residential moving companies early on in the relocation process ensures there isn’t a detail that you aren’t thinking about. There may be something that the moving company knows that you don’t, and bringing it up at the last minute changes everything for the worse. Be sure you are preparing well in advance to spare yourself from any surprises.
  3. Choosing the wrong neighborhood. One very big mistake when relocating is making a hasty decision on where to live without checking out the actual area. Take your time and do your research – there are numerous places on the internet you can turn to in order to research crime rates and school district health, and you won’t wind up stuck in a neighborhood that’s less than desirable.
  4. Going with the lowest residential moving company estimate. Sure, you want to save as much money as possible during your move, that makes sense, but going with the cheapest company you find could turn into a case of “you get what you pay for.” Is it worth saving money when your grandmother’s heirloom china arrives cracked and broken? Be sure you are getting estimates for the exact services the Denver moving companies are offering (packing, unpacking, materials, etc) and that they are reputable and highly professional.
  5. Accepting the quote from the movers over the phone. If a moving company gives you an estimate over the phone, you’ll probably want to call elsewhere! How can they give a reliable quote when they haven’t seen the scope of the move? You should always get someone to walk through your home, pointing out every single thing that will be moved, which items are breakable, and which items you plan on moving yourself. It is important to mention that you need to show them every single thing that needs to be packed and moved – otherwise, you’ll see that your estimate is lower than the final charges, but only because you weren’t explicit enough prior to moving day. Spare yourself from surprise charges, and don’t leave anything out.
  6. Read the fine print. You’d be surprised how many people will sign a document blindly. When it comes to your belongings and your money, be sure you read through the agreement between you and the moving company so that you know exactly what you’re getting into. If there is a clause in the agreement that you aren’t comfortable with or don’t understand, ask. Wording could possibly be changed to keep you at ease, and if not, don’t be afraid to call the deal off and head elsewhere.

How to Clean Your Oven

When you move into a new apartment, the hope is that you will have all new appliances that are clean and look great. But that’s often far from being the actual case. More often than not, landlords try and find the cheapest appliance option, and that can mean an oven that’s far from being clean. The other possibility is that you may move into a place where the last renters weren’t the cleanest folks, and that might mean that you now have a very dirty oven to work with.

If you need some help cleaning up your oven, here are some of our best tips – take it from a Denver moving company with a lot of experience, we’ve seen a lot of really dirty ovens!

How to Get Rid of the Gunk

You can buy oven cleaner that’s full of really toxic chemicals, but there are other ways to go about cleaning the gunk out of an oven.

  1. Make a thick rub of baking soda and water.
  2. Slather the rub all over the inside of your oven, and let this sit overnight.
  3. The next morning, remove all of the rub with a scrubbing sponge or dry towel.
  4. Use a wet towel to get rid of the excess baking soda scrub.
  5. Fill a spray bottle with vinegar.
  6. Spray the vinegar inside of your oven, and wipe that off with some paper towels.

After this process, you should have a completely clean oven.

The Oven Racks

As far as the racks go, these will need special treatment, and you have two good options.

Option 1: you can put your oven racks in your dishwasher, and start the cycle. If your dishwasher can accommodate the racks, you should have clean oven racks in no time.

Option 2: you can soak your racks in your bathtub by adding some dishwashing liquid to your tub, letting the racks soak, and then scrubbing the racks after a good soak.

Both methods should leave you with cleaner oven racks, and this will mean a cleaner oven all around.

Denver Moving Company Cleaning Tip

We’ve helped people move into all kinds of apartments in many different areas, so we’ve picked up a few tips and tricks along the way. Many people that move into an apartment are often discouraged by the state of the appliances in the apartment, but you can really get things into good shape by using the right cleaning products and some elbow grease. Even the oldest oven can look somewhat new after soaking and cleaning. If you love the place that you want to move into, but hate the look of the appliances, keep in mind that you can always clean up any stove or dishwasher or other appliance that’s in the new place.

In most states, landlords have to provide appliances that are in working order, but that doesn’t mean those things have to be new or in great shape, so do keep that in mind when haggling for a new stove. In the meantime, though, you can make your stove look like new by following the tips above.

Getting to Your New Spot

Once you have found the perfect new place, give us a call, and we’ll help you get there quickly. As a top Denver moving company, we’ve helped a lot of people move into new places both here in Denver and in Fort Collins.

Considerations When Moving Abroad With Pets

We love our furry friends, don’t we? For most people, pets are like children, and we treat them just like a member of our family. We make sure they eat only the best food that they’re well-groomed at all times, and have all of the best toys – some might even call them spoiled!

But what do you do when you have to move internationally? Rest easy – it is possible to move abroad with your pet, safely and hassle-free! It just takes a bit more research, working with a long distance moving company, and some planning ahead to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Let’s look at some things to consider when you’re facing an international move with your beloved pet.

Health and Well-being

This is of utmost concern. If you have an older animal, it is even more crucial you ensure their health. Your move is most likely going to involve traveling by airplane, and the older your animal is, the more likely they will be negatively affected. Talk to your vet – they can discuss all of the things you should watch out for, and offer tips to avoid your animal becoming sick or worse. If your animal is too old for air travel, you’ll have to decide what the next step should be.

While you’re at the vet’s office, you should discuss another important issue – vaccinations. Many countries require specific vaccinations are received prior to arrival in their country, so you’ll need to make sure that your animal receives these vaccinations, and that you have the documentation proving you’ve gotten them. Do your homework online first to see what the specific country’s requirements are regarding vaccinations.

Laws and Regulations

Once you’ve determined your animal is healthy enough to make the trip, you’ll want to review your destination country’s policies on traveling animals. While you know you’ll need documentation on the animal’s vaccinations and health from your vet, there are other things you might require. Some countries require the animal is quarantined for a specific period of time, and some ask that you pay a fee to allow the animal entrance to their country.

Look for the phone number or email of your new country’s consulate. Contact the consulate office to find out all you need to do – otherwise, you’ll find that your animal is denied entrance, and that can be a very heart-breaking thing to go through (often, your pet will be detained until all necessary shots have been administered).

Airline Regulations

It isn’t just the rules of the new country you need to worry about. When you are going to be traveling by air, you need to make sure you’re abiding by all of the airline’s rules and regulations as well. Most of the time, your animal will be relegated to the cargo hold. You want to be sure that you’re keeping your beloved furry friend in the proper carrier as spelled out by the airline so as to adhere to their cargo policies. Don’t worry – this is not a bad thing, especially for animals that get stressed out easily. A crowded cabin is worse for an animal with anxiety than the dark cargo area!

You’ll want to ask the airline if the cargo hold is appropriate for your pet – is it properly pressurized for live animals, and is the temperature properly regulated? If the answer is no, you’ll want to find a new airline. Animals spending too long in a cold cargo hold that isn’t properly pressurized can spell disaster!

Steps You’ll Need To Take

If your pet is typically anxious when traveling or gets car sick, you can talk to your vet about the best way to combat this problem in the air. Is there a medication your pet can take prior to takeoff that can soothe them, or make it so they don’t get sick?

How does your pet feel about its carrier? If there is an aversion to the carrier, now is the time to train them. Each day, a few weeks leading up to your trip, force your pet to get inside and take a drive around town. The goal is to make it regular and comfortable over time. Make the experience easier by placing a beloved toy and a comfortable, warm blanket inside. Each time your pet gets into the carrier, be sure to reward them with treats!

Don’t forget to clearly mark the carrier with identification tags. An improperly marked container could mean that you have a hard time hooking up with your pet upon arrival to your new country.

International moves are hard enough, and having a pet can complicate this tremendously. However, know that proper preparation will make the process go a lot more smoothly. While you’ll need to worry about your pet, trust Exodus Moving and Storage with the transport of your belongings. As a seasoned long-distance moving company, we will make sure that you and your things arrive safely.

You have enough to worry about! Contact Exodus Moving and Storage (your long distance moving company) today for an estimate.

How to Beat Moving Fatigue

Even if you do decide to work with a Colorado moving company while relocating, there’s no doubt that moving can really tire you out! The process from start to finish means a lot of hours, possibly very little sleep, and a general feeling of limbo – all of which are perfectly normal. If you have just landed in your new spot, we have some great ways for you to feel better quickly – take a look!

1. Go the raw route. Try eating a raw food diet for a few days post-move, and throw some smoothies with extra vegetables and some additions like acai berry into the mix. Simply filling your body with nutrients will help you get back that energy that you lost.

2. Try to detox by hitting a yoga class or a meditation session. Even if these things aren’t part of your normal routine, taking a few moments to unwind and relax during your move can really make a difference.

3. Go for a steam. Is there anything like a sauna or spa to make you feel refreshed and better all around? We didn’t think so! Plus, Colorado is bursting with amazing spa spots that you will absolutely love – you can even take a look at some of our famous hot springs.

4. Take some downtime to spend exploring your new surroundings. There’s so much to see and do in this state that you’ll want to take a day away from unpacking to see what surrounds you – trust us, you’ll be in awe.

5. Start enjoying nature. If there’s one thing that Colorado is good at, it’s nature. From the Rocky Mountains to some of the best hiking trails you’ve ever seen, this state is all about the outdoors.

6. Get your hair, nails, or feet done. Spend some extra dollars on yourself by going to one of our amazing salons for a haircut, or for something as simple as a pedicure. You’ll feel so much better when you return!

7. Make or create something. Even if it means clearing a few boxes out of your kitchen, creating something that’s delicious is a great way to feel better – plus, you get to lick the spoon.

8. Meet up with new friends. If you know people in your new town, why not make a night out of getting to know the town? You can visit a local restaurant, check out a fun bar, or hit up a movie – anything to get your mind off of those boxes waiting at home!

Simply relax, take it one box at a time, and take some of our unwinding tips to heart.

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.

In addition to a moving estimate, we can also provide you with storage quotes for either one of our storage facilities in either Fort Collins or Denver. Call us today for storage rental information.

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.
