Nature lovers know that open skies and green grass create feelings of pure bliss. It’s hard to generate this feeling when you live smack in the middle of an urban jungle, though. A recent study finds that people living in an urban setting tend to have more mental health problems than people that live in suburban or rural settings. The solution is simple, though. Just move next to a park. All of that open green space will seep into your pores and help make you happy (well, not literally, but that’s the general idea!).

Here’s the scoop.
City Living Is Rough
Did you know that more than half (according to the aforementioned article) of the world’s population live in cities? That’s why city streets are so crowded and city life is so hard. There’s barely any green space for all of those people. Since humans weren’t meant to be surrounded by concrete, moving next to a park is the easiest solution. Or, you could just move to a city in Colorado (known for fresh air and plenty of space – even in city settings!).
If you find a home that has big windows and faces a park, great! If not, look for a location that’s near a park. This way, you can walk through the park whenever the city is getting you down. Even if you live in an area that is covered with snow and ice most of the year, that simple stroll through the park is enough to lift spirits – something that’s really important to keep in mind during those long winter months. Urban planners spend a lot of time trying to recreate nature in the form of a park. All you have to do is enjoy what those planners have created.
Parks in Denver, Colorado
Denver is brimming with parks. Some of the most sought after areas are next to parks and include the City Park and Washington Park areas. This is where you want to look if you spend a lot of time at home (or just want to live near a green space). Luckily, though, finding an expanse of green isn’t hard in Denver. All you have to do is step outside, find a nice path, and enjoy what nature has to offer (kick off your shoes and walk around a bit!).
Colorado is one of the most popular states to move to right now because it offers so many things that other states just can’t. You’ll find that Denver combines urban life (and nightlife) with all the charm of a rural setting (even wide roads and plenty of bike paths!). You can try and snag a piece of park real estate in a city like New York, but it’s not quite as hard in Denver to find the tranquility of nature. Denver offers a different way of life, and a better way of life for anyone seeking a city and country setting meshed into one.
Your Denver Move
When you move to Denver, make sure to bring your outdoor gear with you! Who knows, you may find that you love rock climbing, rafting, cycling, or any other sport that Denver has to offer. When you’re surrounded by so much awesome nature, it’s really hard not to want to go outside and play every chance you get!
We’d love to help you move to Denver. At Exodus Moving and Storage, we’re a Denver moving company offering you the best moving rates around. We also offer complete full-service moving options from packing to unpacking. Can’t move it all with you? That’s okay! With the amount of time that you’ll be spending outside, you don’t have to take all of that extra stuff with you anyway! Plus, we’re more than happy to store the stuff you can’t take with you in our storage facility. Give us a call today to ask about our rates, get an estimate, or find out how we can help you with your move.
Urban settings can be tough on the soul. Life is just simpler when you move to Colorado – or near a beautiful city park. Check out the article linked above, and let us know what it is about Denver that has drawn you to our beautiful city – we’re betting it’s the better way of life!
Selling a home is tricky. In fact, the whole selling and buying process is strange! There are so many things to consider, do, and know about! Here are some things that will make this process a lot more comfortable.
Choosing An Agent

Picking the right agent is the first step to selling your home. Things to look for in an agent include:
1. Technical skills. Can this person scan MLS listings for you? Do they know about the current real estate market? Can they use apps and the Internet to stay on top of the industry? Are they accessible via cellphone regularly?
2. A half-full plate. Some agents are simply too busy. Agents that have multiple listings are less likely to pay attention to your property. Ask how many listings an agent currently has, and don’t choose one that has an extremely full plate or is really hard to get ahold of.
3. Organize. Once you’ve found the right agent, make sure that your home leaves a lot to the imagination. Buyers will want to imagine what a home will look like with different items. Empty out closets halfway, make room on shelves, buy shelf liners, and tidy up kitchen cabinets. Make sure that everything looks neat and clean before showing your home.
4. Use lighting. If your home gets a ton of sunshine, don’t add a bunch of artificial lights or turn on every light in the place. Why? You can use this as a selling point. Show people just how bright your home is without any lights at all. The opposite is also true. If your home doesn’t get a ton of light, play with some lighting options. Add soft lights and bright lights throughout the home to show just how bright it can be.
5. Think twice about modernizing a home. You might love the look of a glass sink in the bathroom, but some buyers might hate it. It’s better to leave your home as is, make small updates, and let a home buyer imagine what a place will look like with some renovations. Huge renovations are never a worthwhile investment when it comes to selling a home. Really!
6. Take a careful look at your kitchen. Do you need new curtains? Has the inside of your stove seen better days? Have you cleaned underneath all appliances? The first thing that most buyers look at is the kitchen area. If you’re going to put any money into renovations, the kitchen is the place to focus on – just don’t go overboard. Make subtle changes.
7. Most of the time, buyers will make appointments with your agent to see your home. However, some people may knock on your door. Try to keep your home as tidy as possible, just in case you get a few drop-ins (and do treat these people courteously!).
8. Add some incentive. If you can offer to cover closing costs or welcome costs, you may just sell your home faster. Take a look at what other sellers in your neighborhood are offering, and then try to do something really unique.
9. Create curb appeal. The outside of a home should look just a nice as the inside. Clean up your front lawn, so that it appeals to buyers. No matter what the season is, you can always keep the front of your home looking nice and clean.
10. Be ready to move. Can you move in 30 or 60 days? Great! Is the home you’re selling turnkey? Even better! Buyers want a home that they can move into quickly. If you can’t move for a while, you may turn off some buyers.
Once You Sell
Your home will sell quickly enough. When that happens, you’ll have to pack up your stuff and move to a new place. At Exodus Moving and Storage, we offer full-service moving solutions for all of your moving needs. This includes packing, unpacking, and the actual move. Sounds good, right? For more information, just give us a call. We’re happy to provide you with a quick estimate and any other details that you need. Whether you’re moving to Fort Collins or Denver, we’re here for you!
Keep in mind that buyers want to visit a home that’s clean, has that comfortable feeling, and shows nicely. Skip the major repairs, find an agent that you like, and concentrate on simply making your home as presentable as possible. Questions? Just ask!
Springtime is almost here. In Denver, that means the start of a new season filled with tons of great things to do. Plus, most of those things are completely free. If you’re moving to Denver (or moving to Fort Collins, which isn’t too far away!) this spring, here’s what you can look forward to!

Spring is the optimal season for checking out what South Park has to offer from great local shops to plenty of South Park themed spots, this is the place to go for any animation fan.
4. 16th Street Mall: springtime means spending as much time outside as possible, and that only gets better when some great shopping is involved! Join the rest of the city as you stroll through the popular 16th Street Mall area checking out some of the best shopping spots.
5. Ski and Snowboard: there are far too many great slopes to just mention one here, but springtime is the absolute best time to get outside and ski or snowboard. With the sun on your face and a lot less layers, spring is the season for some of the best trail runs.
6. Hike: just like skiing or boarding, there are just too many trails in Denver to mention here, but all you really have to do is find one. Most trails are completely free to use, open to the public, and only require a good pair of hiking shoes. When the temperatures warm up, why not head outdoors and enjoy the spring immersed in Mother Nature?
7. Brew tours: if you’re really looking to relax, Denver has some of the best breweries around. Plus, lots of breweries offer food and drink pairings, so that you can really learn about Denver’s best beers. This is the best way to pass any lazy spring day!
8. Frisbee! You’ll see people playing Frisbee all over Denver on any green space that’s available. Roll up your pants, take off your shoes, grab a Frisbee, and get into the game!
9. Rockies games! If you’ve never been to a ballgame outdoors, you’re really missing out! Grab some tickets to see the Rockies during the first games of the season, and you’ll see why baseball is one of the most popular sports in America.
10. The Santa Fe Art District: during the spring months, this artsy side of town goes all-out with outdoors shows, new exhibits, and plenty to see and do.

Since it’s always fun to take a stroll back through time, we thought we’d wrangle up some of Colorado’s famous (and infamous) outlaws. Colorado was part of the Wild West, and it’s easy to draft back in time when standing in some of this states wide-open spaces! If you’re moving to Fort Collins or anywhere else in Colorado, you’ll be stepping into territory that was once ruled by some pretty interesting outlaws! Take a look.

Mountain Charley: while not as famous as Bonnie Parker (of Bonnie an Clyde), Mountain Charley was a woman on a mission back in her day. Born as Elsa Jane Forest, Mountain Charley was a gunslinger and out to seek vengeance for the death of her husband. She never did kill the man that murdered her husband, but she did wound him well enough to keep him at bay (he eventually died of Yellow Fever).
Butch Cassidy: born Robert Leroy Parker, Butch and his gang operated their outfit in Colorado, and that’s where Cassidy had his first run-in with the law (in Telluride).
Wyatt Earp: after his many brushes with the law, Earp spent most of his later years roaming through gold camps in Colorado.
Doc Holliday: Doc loved to spend his time in Colorado, and it was often his home away from home. In 1881, he moved to Denver and spent most of his time at the Babbitt’s House.
Soapy Smith: not surprisingly, Soapy was a slippery man. His trick was to roam the land with a traveling circus milking unsuspecting attendees of every dime. One of Soapy’s more permanent shows was set up in Denver where he tricked plenty of travelers out of dollars at Union Station.
The Scene Today
While you won’t see Doc Holliday roaming the streets or face Soapy Smith as you step off of a train, Colorado is full of history. This state is also full of museums that celebrate history. If outlaws and the Wild West is your thing, this is absolutely the state for you. Colorado also has some great cowboy boot shops where you can get fitted for a pair of boots like the ones those famous outlaws would have worn.
You can even attend one of the biggest rodeos in Colorado (The Western Stock Show in Denver) to check out some modern cowboys. But, truth be told, Colorado these days is filled with friendly folks. Danger has long gone from this state, and nothing but some really great legends (made even better told around a campfire!) remain. Speaking of campfires, did you know that Colorado has some amazing beaches where you can set up a campfire during the summer month?
Great Colorado Swimming Spots
When you think of Colorado beaches, don’t think of Oceanside retreats crammed with sun chairs and umbrellas. Instead, think of cool lakeside beaches that overlook crystal clear mountain springs. You’ll experience views of the Rockies, plenty of water sports, and lots of other fun in the sun activities that will show you why this town is really into the outdoors!
If you arrive during the warmer months, make sure to check out the following spots:
- Blue Mesa Reservoir
- Boulder Reservoir
- Grand Lake
- Medano Creek
Each one of these spots is a natural wonder filled with mountain views, sand dunes, and plenty of other amazing and breathtaking scenes. We’ve said it before on this blog, but we’ll say it again (because it’s so true!): you can do any outdoor activity at any time in Colorado! It’s a nature lover’s (and outlaw’s!) paradise.
Making Your Move
Thankfully, you won’t have to put all of your thinking in a stagecoach in order to move to Colorado! We can help you with any of your moving and storage needs at Exodus Moving and Storage. We have large storage spaces in both Fort Collins and Denver, and we’re happy to give you an estimate over the phone if you give us a call. We love this state, and we know that you will love it too.

Named after Horace Greeley (editor of the New York Tribune during the early 1800s), Greeley is steeped in history at every turn. If you love history and the way life used to be, you’re in for a real treat when you move to Greeley. This town has lots of historical attractions, and, being Colorado, plenty of outdoor activities and excitement.

Ready to explore Greeley? Here’s what you’ll find!
1. Greeley Freight Station Museum: if you are a railroad or train buff, this is absolutely the place for you. Explore the 5,000 square foot mock rail system inside of this museum, learn about trains and tracks, and spend your day seeing how the USA used to get around!
2. Centennial Village Museum: this museum brings history to life – quite literally! As a period museum, you will see Centennial Village actors dressed up in period costumes, performing everyday tasks that were popular during yesteryear, and doing things that would have made life exciting back in the old days. Centennial Museum makes the perfect place for a date or to bring your kids for an educational walk through time.
3. Antique Washing Bin Museum: how many antique washing bins can there possibly be? You might be surprised – this museum is filled with the many ways that people used to wash clothes (far before energy efficient machines filled homes and packed department stores!).
4. Pawnee National Grasslands: if you want to explore the outdoors for a day or two, check out the Pawnee National Grasslands. This massive expanse of grasslands is open for visitors of all kinds. Whether you’re on a bicycle, by car, by foot, or with a tent or two, this is where you want to go in Greeley to view the stars and take in the open air.
5. Kress Cinema and Lounge: are you into independent theater productions? The Kress Cinema provides an amazing opportunity to check out what’s happening with local theater. Kids are welcome, it’s a great place for a first date, and you can really submerse yourself in what’s local and theatrical at Kress – give it a shot!
6. Local Life: sometimes, it’s nice just to sit back and relax. Or, maybe take a stroll down the main strip and see what kinds of shops and wares locals have for sale. You can also check out the Greeley Mall for all kinds of brand names and favorites.
7. Yoga time! It’s really good to stretch your muscles when you can, and Greeley offers many different opportunities to spend time on yourself in the form of yoga. Greeley has a Bikram Yoga center, and some smaller yoga centers that are perfect for meeting people in town and learning to relax and breathe. Never tried yoga? Greeley is the perfect spot for your first time!
8. Nature Trails: if there’s one thing that Colorado isn’t lacking, it’s nature trails. Greeley has so many beautiful nature trails that it’s tough to pick just one. Grab your hiking boots, get outside, and see what outdoor life is all about.
9. Poudre River: are you into rafting? Do you want to try rafting? Either way, the Poudre River is where people of all ages go to experience the rapids. In fact, Greeley is a popular destination for river seekers from miles away, and moving to Greeley means that you’ll have the river at your backdoor – what could be better?
10. Learn to live like a local: how is this a thing to do in Greeley? If you’re coming to Colorado from any other part of the world, you’ll quickly learn that things are different here. Greeley residents enjoy sunshine, nature, and plenty of things to do all year long. Plus, life in Colorado moves at a much slower pace. Learn to sit back, relax, and live life one step at a time.
Moving to Greeley
Ready to move to Greeley? Great! We’ve got all of your moving needs covered. At Exodus Moving and Storage, we offer large storage spaces in both Denver and Fort Collins (not far from Greeley at all!), and we are a full service moving company. That means that we can help with every aspect of your move from packing to driving to unloading (we’re your number one Colorado moving company!). We can even help you out with all of those large and awkward pieces that you aren’t sure how to move!
Give us a call today to see what we can do for you!
Moving any type of electronic can be somewhat nerve-wracking. There’s a good chance that you paid a lot of money for every device in your home, so moving these items with ease (and without breaking anything) is important. At Exodus Moving and Storage, we’ve moved a lot of different types of electronics, and we’d love to offer you our tips for moving electronics without a hitch.
1. The first thing to do is to find the right boxes. Ideally, packing an item in its original box is the way to go. But, let’s be real. The chance that you still have the original box a device came in is slim to none, right? Still, getting a box that fits that item perfectly is smart.
2. Pack wires in a static-free bag, if possible. This way, you can ensure that all wires will remain working and unfrayed.
3. Purchase some bubble wrap. You can buy large rolls of bubble wrap at wholesale stores like Costco – and you’ll need it! Wrap up all of your electronics as securely as possible inside of those cozy bubbles, and tape up any sides or loose ends.
4. Include owner manuals. Inside of each device box, add the owner’s manual for that device. This way, you won’t have any problem setting up your item in your new home (if all else fails, you can look online for an owner’s manual, make a copy, and add that to the device box).
5. Label each box. Add the word ‘FRAGILE’ to each box containing an electronic device, and also add the name of the room where that box should be placed (this will make your life simpler when it comes to unpacking!).
6. Move with care. If you don’t plan on hiring professional movers to move your items, make sure to handle all of your electronics with extreme care. Professional movers are insured, and this means that any damage will likely result in an item replacement – this isn’t the case if you just ask your friends to move your stuff for you (so keep this in mind!).
7. Unpack carefully. All of your electronics should be packed securely by now, so that you can simply enjoy your move. When it’s time to unpack, be just as careful as you were when you were packing. Make sure to remove all items, check to see that all attachments and wires are accounted for, and look at the owner’s manual to see how to set something up.
It’s possible that you missed a few attachments or cords when you were packing, and now you have an incomplete device. What can you do? Look online at the manufacturer’s website, find out what you need, and order that part if necessary. If the device is older and the manufacturer doesn’t sell that item anymore (or replacement parts for it), you may be able to find certain pieces on an online auction site like eBay, or through a site like Craigs List.
Getting Your Items to Your New Home
As mentioned above, you are taking a risk when asking your friends to move electronics. Television screens can break, consoles can come apart, and even small items like tablets can arrive with cracked screens. All of these things can happen even if you bubble wrap your stuff. Friends are great, but you may want to consider asking your friends to help you with smaller boxes, and hiring movers to handle those larger (and more expensive) things.
Denver moving companies should give you an estimate in advance, so you can decide whether or not hiring professional movers is affordable. You should also be able to determine whether or not a company can move all of your electronics during the initial consultation meeting. If you are moving to Denver or Fort Collins, we can help you with all of your electronic moving needs – from packing to moving and even unpacking. We also offer storage facilities in both Denver and Fort Collins, so that you can store those items that you don’t want to take along. Sometimes, that amazing device just won’t fit inside of a new home, and that’s when a storage facility option can really be helpful. Ask us about our storage options (highly secure and guarded!), and about our moving services when you call. It would be our pleasure to help you move your electronics to any location in the Denver or Fort Collins area. Call us today!
No lawn to mow, no landscaping to do, and no taxes to pay. Apartment living can certainly have its benefits. This is especially true if you are moving to a city that tends to have too many people and overpriced houses – better to live in an apartment and save up some cash first! Plus, you can find some great apartments if you spend some time looking (rent controlled is best)!
But, there are some things that are certainly different about living in apartment. There are some unwritten rules that you’ll have to follow if you want to make nice with the neighbors and avoid angering your new landlord (or the city police!). Take a look!
1. If you are going to block the entrance to a building or a major street with your massive moving truck, make sure that you have clearance from both the building owner and the city. You don’t want to be slapped with a fine when you decide to shut Main Street down to make room for your stuff!
2. Does your new building have an elevator? If so, you’ll want to double-check that no other tenant is moving on the same day that you are. Call up your new landlord and find out if you’ll run into an elevator moving battle!
3. How big are your largest pieces of furniture? One of the biggest mistakes that people moving from a home into an apartment make is trying to fit a massive piece of furniture through a small apartment door. If your old home had big doorframes and lots of space, you might find yourself struggling to get a couch or table into your new home! Measure first and move second.
4. Make sure that everything is labeled, and that you know what room you will be using for what purpose. Example: the old tenant may have used the room with the fireplace for a living room, but you may want to turn that room into your dining room. Figure out the room situation before you try to move. This way, you can clearly label each box so that it makes sense.
5. Consider making a map. The people that you hire to move your stuff may not know what room is what, so a map might help.
Other tenants may wonder who you are at first, so it doesn’t hurt to walk around after your move and introduce yourself. You never know, you may find a nice neighbor or two that you can easily be friends with. Making sure that your landlord likes you is important too, so do make nice right away! If the apartment you’re moving into is actually a condo by definition, find out if you can be a part of the committee as soon as you arrive. You may not be active right away, but taking part in major decisions is a good idea (and one that’s likely to impact your wallet!).
Prep Your Moving Company
If you have a strange piece of furniture that will only fit in a door one way, you may want to let your moving company know. You may also want to ask the moving company you’re working with if they can move every item that you have. Pianos, for example, may require transportation by crane, and this isn’t something that every moving company has at the ready.
When you do decide to book a moving company in Fort Collins, Colorado, make sure that the company you choose is a full-service moving company. Full service companies can help you pack, move, and unload professionally. What’s the difference? Some companies that aren’t full-service may not be able to help you pack. It’s up to you to decide if packing is something you need help with, but having a bunch of people help you pack can take a load off!
Enjoy Apartment Life!
There are so many freedoms that come with apartment life. Forget about maintenance, repairing appliances or broken things, buying stuff like fixtures, and all of those other little things that you had to do when you lived in a house. The trick to making an apartment feel like a house is to find one that’s spacious, sunny, and well maintained. Not sure if an apartment is for you? Speak with other tenants to find out what life is like where you are moving.
If you need more help, make sure to give Exodus Moving and Storage a call. When it comes to moving, we’re here for you!
Exodus Moving and Storage is our name, and moving is our game. We are a northern Colorado based moving company who knows all about Colorado and how to move people near and far. We have move people out of state, in state, and even across the world in one way or another. This experience is something that we would love to show you and provide for you. We understand that moving can be an extremely scary experience and we understand that it can be quite costly. We think we can help you out here though.
Moving is not generally something that people do on a yearly basis unless forced to. In fact, many people will not move unless required to because of the hassle that it puts upon them and their family. We believe that we can help reduce this burden though, especially if you’re someone who needs to really get out of the area you are in. Moving should be a fun experience that you do every now and again when you want to become a member of another community. It should not be something that scares you away because of all the difficulties that you will have to surmount. By choosing to go with us, you are choosing someone who understands the fear that can be involved with moving and wants to help you get over it in the easiest and most painless way possible.
We also understand that moving is a very costly endeavor. Between selling the home, purchasing a new one, hiring moving companies and whatnot to help you get into your new place, and all the essentials that become required therein, that bill can rack up fast. We don’t want you to feel pressured by this extremely large financial burden, which is why we try to offer the best prices possible when it comes to helping you move. We try to put our prices somewhere between what you feel would be a very good price, and what we need in order to make our business run for another day. We don’t want to bankrupt you, that is actually our last goal. Our first and foremost goal is providing you with excellent service at the best price possible.
Hello everyone and welcome to the blog about Exodus Moving and Storage. Here, we talk about all things moving related so that you can be ready to move into your new place no matter where it takes you. We are based in Denver and Ft Collins but move people all over the world. One thing we’d like to talk about though our movers who are based in Ft Collins.
Ft Collins is, and always has been rated as one of the highest quality cities to live in. This year alone, Forbes magazine ranked us as number seven, whereas in the past we’ve actually been ranked number one. This means we know a few things about moving because of all the students who fluctuate throughout this town. We feel that one of the biggest difference is that can be made in anybody’s moving experience is hiring a full service mover to help you with all of your different needs.
The definition of a full service mover is one that assists not only with the renting of a truck, but will help you move your furniture into the correct rooms. It’s the ability to go above and beyond simply renting out a truck. Occasionally in this blog, you will see us mention the phrase of two men and a truck, and we cannot tell you how true it is that they can make a world of difference. We know that sometimes you are the only person that you now when you move to a new town. Nobody will be there to provide you with a truck, so hire us to do it for you.
We want to provide you with the quality service that Exodus moving and storage has become known for over the years. Much of Colorado knows who we are, and ask us to help them move. We do everything from residential and business, to government establishment moves. We are very well rounded and we provide you with the best service possible. So before you go and hire anyone else, take a look at the services that we offer, and read our blog. We like to provide useful information that you can use no matter who you decide to go with.
