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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

For the most part, holiday traditions in North America are pretty tame. But elsewhere in the world, some holiday traditions may strike you as just plain bizarre. Before you decide to call your Boulder movers and relocate, make sure that you’re not moving to an area where there’s a peculiar holiday tradition that may just creep you out — or more there knowing about the tradition, and wanting to take part in it!
Krampus: Popular in Eastern Europe, Krampus is a character that’s also known as Santa’s Evil Twin. Every year during the holiday season, adult men dress up in evil costumes, and wander around town with switches tapping people randomly. Krampus is supposed to remind kids to be good, and to stay off of Santa’s bad list, but really he’s just frightening!
In Norway, legend has it that evil spirits and witches look for brooms to fly around on during Christmas Eve. To prevent any spirits from stealing brooms from homes, all brooms are hidden, and the men of the family head outside with shotguns to wait for any spirits that might come around.
A KFC Christmas in Japan: In Japan, Christmas Eve dinner consists of a bucket of KFC. This tradition is so popular in Japan that reservations must be made in advance in order to get some of the good stuff for Christmas Eve dinner.
One member of a model Christmas village that you may not see anywhere outside of Spain, Portugal, or Italy is a figurine known as the ‘Caganer.’ These figurines are created with their pants pulled down, and those decorating the traditional Christmas village (with Mary and Joseph and all) put a Caganer in a corner to do his business.
A New Tradition for You
If you are planning to move to any of the countries mentioned here, you may find yourself enjoying a new holiday tradition. In most parts of North America, Christmas traditions include lights and gingerbread, but few include scary evil witches or devils! If you do find yoursel moving to one of the countries listed above, make sure to embrace the strange holiday traditions you find there. You never know, some of those traditions could be a lot of fun!
Getting to Your New Country
You will need to work with a long distance moving company in order to get where you want to go, and we can help with this kind of move. From moving within the U.S. to moving to another country, Exodus can help you move all of your things safely and soundly. Just call us today for a moving quote, for more information, or to find out about our storage space options.
We know that you can’t always move every item you own if you don’t have the space in your new home, and that’s why we have storage locker solutions for you. Call us today for rates and for more information about our storage options, or about what we can do for you where moving and other details are concerned. If you have any questions about our services, we’ll be happy to answer those when you call too (or you can find us on Facebook).
Do you have any strange holiday traditions that you’d like to share with us? Let us know by leaving a note on our Facebook page, or by leaving a note here. We’re better that most of the traditions elsewhere in the world are a lot stranger than what you do each year, but we could be wrong! We’d love to hear from you! Call our moving company in Fort Collins, and let us help you get where you need to go.
Some people go all out when the holiday season arrives, and some whole towns get into the holiday spirit too. If you’re the type that likes to play holiday light schemes in June, these are the towns that you should move to!
-The Inn at Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee: while you can’t move to this inn, you can stop here on your way to your new destination. This inn isn’t called ‘The Inn at Christmas Place’ for nothing — the whole inn was created and modeled after Christmas, and Christmas is what you’ll get when you stop by this inn. Trees, trimmings, and all.
-Solvang, California: Solvang was settled by Danish immigrants during the 1900s, and today the town is the picture-perfect image of what Christmas in a quaint Danish town should look like. On the day of the Winter Solstice, there are many festivities including a colorful parade.
-Santa Claus, Indiana: Need we say more? This town wasn’t named ‘Santa Claus’ for nothing! Santa Claus calls itself “America’s Christmas Town,” and the whole town gets in on the festivities. If you really love Christmas, call your Boulder movers and pack your bags for Santa Claus, Indiana!
-New York City: If you’ve never seen New York City during the holidays, you have to check it out this year. The whole city is a glow with lights, festivities, parades, and shows — plus, you can get in on the famous NYE action if you happen to be in Times Square on the 31st of December!
-Durango, Colorado: If you have kids, you’ll want to live in Durango, where a real train pulls kids in PJs on the ‘Polar Express’ ride. The town itself just happens to lend itself to the holiday spirit too with plenty of snow, lights, and cozy nooks and crannies that you can just melt into on a cold day.
-Woodstock, VT: The annual holiday parade that happens in Woodstock is enough to get anyone in the Christmas spirit. The parade includes more than 50 horses and carriages, and the town turns back time to create an old-fashioned Christmas scene.
-Disneyworld: You can’t live at Disney World, but you can visit this magical theme park during the holidays to see what Disney does when it comes to holiday cheer. Lights, festivities, fireworks — it’s a Disney Christmas!
-New Orleans: every year, the whole town gets together in New Orleans to sing Christmas Carols in front of the cathedral — it’s hard to think of a more festive scene.
Booking Your Loveland Movers
When it comes to Christmas, you may want to live in a town that goes all out if you’re really into the holidays. If that’s the case, any one of the towns listed above will do the trick. But you’ll still need to get there (and bring all of your stuff with you!), and that’s where we can help. Exodus Moving and Storage is a full service moving company that offers complete help with your move from packing to unpacking.
Additionally, we also have storage locker facilities in both Denver and Fort Collins. Call us today to ask us about moving rates and estimates, or about our storage space rentals. When it comes to moving companies in Colorado, we have you covered! We also want to know, what’s your favorite holiday town? Is there a town out there that’s not on this list? Let us know by leaving a note here, or come and see us on Facebook. We’d love to know where you love to go during the holidays!
When it comes to kids, pets, and guests, couches just don’t last that long. The average lifespan of a couch is five years, six if you’re lucky. Starting out with a couch fabric that’s easy to clean will go a long way towards keeping that couch looking better longer, and you may even be able to get away with moving your old couch to your new space.
The Best Fabrics to Choose
- Micro-suede: Because it’s not made of real leather, micro-suede is simple to clean. In most cases, a quick wipe will get rid of any stains, and tough stains can be removed with couch cleaner.
- Leather: Leather actually isn’t hard to clean, though it can crack and fade, and it’s also a favorite material of cats (so watch out!). You can simply wipe leather in order to clean it, and it’s hard to stain unless you spill red wine or other liquid that might be absorbed by the porous material.
- Vinyl: Vinyl is really simple to clean (simpler than leather), but it’s not an easy material to find. Plus, some people really just don’t like the look of vinyl, so this one is entirely personal.
The Worst Materials
- Natural fibers: While a cotton couch looks nice, cotton stains easily (so does wool and other natural materials), so beware of a cotton couch if you want the couch to last for a long time.
- Silk: Silk couches look really nice, but silk is a picky material. Not only does silk stain, it also rips easily and you’ll be looking at a shredded couch if your cat decides that she likes silk a lot.
- Leather: Notice how leather is in both categories? That’s because there are different grades of leather, and some are far more porous than others. When you buy a leather couch, ask the salesperson if the leather that you like is more or less susceptible to stains.
Stained Couch Woes
Before you call the Boulder movers, think about whether or not you want to keep that stained couch. In almost every city, there’s some kind of shelter or other non-profit that would gladly take any kind of couch that’s in somewhat good condition. You can also donate the couch to a group home, or give it to someone that’s really in need. If you do not want the couch, you can always throw it out, but be careful to toss it in a designated area (you can’t just leave it on the sidewalk!).
What about that semi-stained couch that you want to move to your new home, but your girlfriend is not into? Well, in that case you can simply store your old couch, and sneak it into your new home when she’s not around — or, ok, you can save it until you have your Man Cave set up. As movers in Greeley, CO, we know that sometimes you just want to put some stuff in storage. That’s why we have storage space in both Fort Collins and Denver, and why we are more than happy to provide you with competitive storage space pricing.
We are just movers, we have storage solutions too! When it comes to moving companies in Colorado, Exodus is here for you. Call us today for a free quote, or let us know what you need when it comes to moving help. You can also find us on Facebook if you have any questions, or if you want to let us know about an upcoming move that you’re planning. In the meantime, make sure to buy a couch with fabric that lasts!
Watching a parent or other loved one slowly age and lose capabilities is a hard thing to do. As a child or sole caretaker, it might be your responsibility to decide when that person needs to move into an assisted living home. While everyone is different, here are some signs that you can look for that may indicate it’s time to call your Boulder movers.
Fast accidents with slow recovery times. Everyone slips, falls, and drops things, but many accidents that happen regularly may be a telltale sign that the person you love needs help. The other thing to look for is signs of a slow recovery. After an accident or flu or cold, was the person you love able to recover quickly, or did it take a good amount of time for that person to recover? Sometimes, a slower recovery can mean that the person is unable to care for herself.
Difficulty doing everyday tasks. If your mother has always done her own cooking, cleaning, and laundry, and she suddenly has a really hard time doing these basic tasks, it might be time for help.
Weight gain or weight loss. Either drastic weight gain or weight loss can both be signs that the person is struggling. Sometimes, weight gain can be attributed to diseases like diabetes or Alzheimer’s (someone may forget that they have already eaten), and weight loss can be a sign of the same kind of struggle.
Bodily odor. If you notice that the person you’re thinking about has suddenly started to smell, this can be a sign of dementia or depression. Try and find out why that person is not showering regularly (sometimes, it could be something as simple as not feeling safe getting in and out of a shower!).
Look for signs of inactivity. Is the person you’re thinking about no longer leaving the house, or stays in the house for days on end? If someone isn’t getting out of the house at all, isn’t visiting with friends, and isn’t making an effort to leave, there’s an underlying reason.
How to Find Out More
If you don’t live with the person you’re worried about, the next best way to figure out what’s happening is to speak with neighbors or friends. A neighbor may know more than you think, so ask if the person has been suffering, or if other things might be going on.
What to Do
The first thing to do is talk with the person to try and get to the bottom of some of the struggles. Some things may have practical explanations, and other things may not have any explanation at all. The second thing to do is to call a social worker to have that person’s autonomy evaluated. There may be some small adjustments you can make to the person’s home before a big move needs to take place. Or, the social worker may tell you that it’s time for that person to move into an assisted living home. If you do need to move someone, you will have to call your Longmont movers to set up a moving time, work out a moving schedule, and figure out the details. We can help you with a moving quote and complete moving services (from packing to unpacking) at Exodus, just give us a call.
It’s never easy to admit that your loved one needs assisted help. The alternative, though, is to allow that person to suffer in silence, and that’s not a better option. If you’re having a hard time deciding whether or not to move someone, do make a call to a local social worker, and find out what you can do. You can also consider therapy to help you with this decision — sometimes, you will need support too!
Google Earth finds nearly every nook on the planet, and many of those places aren’t known to many people — if any people! The next time that you think your hometown is a bit odd, think about these places that show up on Google Earth!
–The Davis Monthan Air Force Base: This abandoned base in Tucson, Arizona, is known by the military as the “plane boneyard,” and it’s literally where planes go to die. When the military no longer needs a plane, it is sent to the boneyard.
–Strange etchings in the Gobi Desert: Somewhere in China’s Gobi Desert is a strange pattern of structures and sketches in the ground that Google Earth has picked up on. Why those sketches are there and what they mean is a different story (one that no human can currently tell).
–The Kazahstan Pentagram: In the middle of Kazakstan sits a sizeable pentagram. The star surrounded by a circle was largely puzzling until researchers figured out that the star is actually the borders of a park, and the circle that surrounds it marks the boundaries of the park. A strange symbol, but not as strange as it once seemed.
In the Wake of Google Earth
Ever since Google Earth started to dig up some odd places on Earth, many people search Google Earth in their spare time just to see what’s out there. This has given many advertisers with enough dollars a brilliant idea — create an ad that’s large enough for Google Earth to pick up, and tons of people will see the ad when they use Google Earth. This strategy is working for KFC and other chains that have created massive ads, placed those ads flat on the earth, and are enjoying the benefits!
Another thing that has happened since the dawn of Google Earth is the return of many different conspiracy theories. When things like pentagrams and possible UFO landing strips start showing up on Google Earth, conspiracy theorists start to generate rumors — until those rumors can be debunked by researchers, that is. Most of the time, the strange places that Google Earth does pick up are quickly explained. Sometimes, we just don’t know what things look like from up above, and so those things look stranger than they actually are!
Choosing Where to Live
If you don’t have any particular reason for moving, it can be hard to figure out where to go. Here’s where you can use Google Maps and Google Earth to check out possible towns. You could move next to a possible UFO landing strip, or you may decide that living next to an abandoned military base is for you. Wherever you do decide to go, Exodus Moving and Storage (Boulder movers) can help you get there with all of your stuff in one piece.

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

While we typically focus on moving things like boxes as your Boulder movers, Exodus Moving and Storage is all about your well-being in all aspects of life, so here are a few different kinds of moving tips for you to check out!
How to Move At Work
Many workplaces are a lot better than they were in past years where exercise is concerned. Some offices provide employees with desks that can be raised (so that employees can stand up while working), and other offices give employees discounts on neighborhood gyms and exercise programs. But if you happen to work in a place that doesn’t do any of these things, you can still make an effort to move during the day while you are at work.
1. Stand up and stretch in all directions: bend down and touch your toes, reach for the sky, do a few air squats, and move your arms all around – sure, people might look at you funny at first, but we’re betting your colleagues soon join in the fun.
2. Go outside during your lunch break. Many of us have formed the bad habit of eating at our desks. While it might seem like eating lunch at your desk is the best and fastest way to get through that stack of work, the truth is that getting up and walking around outside will help you generate a creative spark much better and faster than sitting at a desk all day.
3. Make your break time exercise time. Bring running shoes to your office, and go for a run or walk during any break that you have. All it take is fifteen minutes of fresh air and sunshine to feel better and gain energy.
4. Start a sports program at work. Company teams are a lot of fun, so why not start one?
5. Try squatting at your desk instead of sitting in a chair. Take ten minutes, remove your chair, and just sit in a squat – your quadraceps will thank you, and your whole core will feel tighter as a result.
Why Moving Matters
Humans weren’t meant to sit at desks all day (really!), and our bodies can take a real beating when we are forced to sit down all day and stare at a screen. Not only does a sedentary lifestyle lead to things like high blood pressure and diabetes, but your muscles can start to cramp up and your mind can become fatigued just by sitting down all day long. It can be hard to get used to moving regularly at first (if you aren’t used to it), but five to ten minutes per day is all it takes. Once you get into moving on a regular basis, you’ll crave those minutes!
If you need help moving things like furniture and boxes, that’s where Exodus Moving and Storage can really lend a hand.
