Moving Tips

Moving is a big task, but with the right preparation and organization, it can be a lot smoother. Here are a few tips to help you manage your move effectively:

  1. Start Early: Don’t leave packing to the last minute. Starting to pack early can help reduce stress as your moving date approaches.
  2. Have a Garage Sale: As you sort through your belongings, you’re likely to come across items you no longer need or use. Hosting a garage sale is a great way to declutter, lighten your moving load, and make some extra cash to offset moving expenses. Remember to price items reasonably, advertise your sale in the local community, and be ready to negotiate prices.
  3. Pack an Essentials Box: This should include items you’ll need immediately after the move, such as toiletries, toilet paper and paper towels, a shower curtain, a change of clothes, important documents like your driver’s license and social security card, and other daily essentials.
  4. Label Boxes Clearly: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This makes unpacking and setting up your new home a lot easier.
  5. Use Quality Packing Materials: Using high-quality boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and other packing materials can help protect your belongings during the move.
  6. Hire Professionals: Professional movers like Exodus Moving & Storage can make your move a lot easier. They have the experience and equipment to move your belongings safely and efficiently.

With these tips in mind, your moving experience can become significantly more manageable, efficient, and even cost-effective.

How To Choose A Moving Company

How To Choose A Moving Company When Planning Your Move

Planning a move can be a significant task, and choosing the right professional movers is one of the most crucial decisions you’ll make during the process. With plenty of moving companies to choose from, sometimes the task of finding the right company to partner with can be overwhelming. Here are some key considerations to help you select a reliable, high-quality moving service:

Verify the Company’s Credentials: Make sure the company is fully licensed and insured. You can confirm the company’s USDOT (United States Department of Transportation) number and its standing with regulatory bodies. For instance, Exodus Moving & Storage operates under USDOT license number 70719 and CO PUC license number HHG-00071.

Investigate the Company’s Reputation: Look for companies that have been in business for a significant amount of time and have a strong reputation for quality service. Look for high ratings from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and recognition from reputable institutions. Exodus, for instance, is A+ rated by the BBB and was the winner of the 2020 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics.

Review the Range of Services: Some companies specialize in local moves, while others are equipped for long-distance or even international relocations. Make sure the company you choose offers the specific services you need, be it packing and unpacking, warehouse storage, or moving specific items like pianos or antiques.

Ask About Their Estimate Process: A reputable company should provide a thorough estimate process, including a potential in-home visit to assess the size and scope of your move. Companies that offer a free quote, like Exodus Moving & Storage, are a great starting point.

Read Customer Reviews: Look for online reviews or ask for references to get a sense of the company’s track record with previous customers. A company with consistently positive feedback is likely to provide excellent service. Recommendations from friends and family are also helpful.

Consider the Value for Money: While cost is a significant factor, it shouldn’t be the only one. The cheapest quote might not offer the best value. Consider the range of services, the company’s reputation, and the peace of mind they offer when assessing the cost.

Remember, a successful moving experience starts with the right moving company. Taking the time to research and choose wisely can save you a lot of stress in the long run.
