So, let’s say that you don’t want to move to the hustle and bustle of Ft Collins, but you have your heart set on moving to the northern section of Colorado. There are a few towns in the area close to Ft Collins, but none resembles the city more than Loveland. Moving to Loveland is an option that you have if you want to stay in the beautiful Northern Colorado that is close to the mountains but don’t want the huge amount of college students around you.
Usually, this is one of the biggest reasons people move to Loveland other than a job. They work in Ft Collins sometimes but don’t want to be bothered by the mass number of college students who fluctuate through the town throughout the year. Who could blame them to be honest, college students can be very rowdy and tend to stay up all hours of the evening. Being a previous college student myself, I can assure you this is the truth.
However, moving to Loveland means that you have the beautiful scenery that you have been looking for as well as the quiet that can be found in a town that is not a college town. One of your biggest hurdles in Laughlin though is finding a home. Even in Loveland Colorado, movers may be very popular but that’s because there are so many homes that are purchased instantly once they go on the market. Its truth that at the moment some homes that are within the 100,000 range to 300,000 range are selling within 24 hours of their posting on the internet.
Real estate agents can’t keep homes long enough to sell them. However, if you already have a home and you just need a moving company, welcome to the company for you. We’re a full service moving company and we will help you get into that home that you’ve purchased as quickly as possible. Loveland is a beautiful town and it’s a great choice to move to. It’s very pretty during the summer and very green. During the winter, it tends to have snow like the rest of Colorado, though being in the northern half we do tend to receive a little bit more. All in all though it’s a beautiful place to move to and a good choice.
Exodus is always on the move for the Colorado community. Once again, we were there for another exciting event. At Exodus, we are enthusiastic about promoting community involvement. While sculptures normally stay still, last weekend over 2,000 pieces by more than 170 artists made their journey to one of the most unique gatherings in the world: a Loveland tradition that continues to generate a great deal of income for the community and an even greater appreciation for beauty and bonding among Colorado residents near and far, Loveland’s Sculpture in the Park Show.
With so much riding on keeping this tradition going strong, organizers called upon the one Colorado based national moving company they could depend on, Exodus Moving and Storage. Exodus movers were there , proud to tackle the logistical obstacles the massive set-up presented.
The Benson Sculpture Garden is the permanent home to a 132 piece collection of outdoor sculptures. The Loveland High Plains Arts Council operates the park year-round as a tranquil get-away, ideal for family strolls and visitor sightseeing.
This year was the 28th anniversary of the Sculpture in the Park Show, and it opened concurrently with the Loveland Sculpture Invitational and Art in the Park. Planners estimated 30,000 combined visitors.
The transformation of a tranquil get away into an international showcase in a short time takes both expertise and precision in addition to the muscle to get it done. Hundreds of pedestals needed to be in place, on time, so the displays would have a leg to stand on. Huge tents needed to go up, delivery routes needed to be established, and all of this had to be done around walkways that saw traffic increase by a thousand fold.
This was a big project, but Exodus handles moves both big and small with the same level of commitment and to the same level of success. And we just couldn’t get enough. After the show, our guys were back to take it all down and return the garden to the watchful eyes of its residents, no doubt happy to settle down until next year.
As both a concerned and involved member of our neighborhoods as well as a leader in the moving and storage industry at large, we are proud to forge alliances in the community. One such cooperation comes from the obvious mutual interest between those who sell homes and offices and those who move into them. We wanted to get involved with the parts of the communities we serve that are helping our clients to become stronger and more stable in their relocation efforts. And the organizations that work to support integrity and the fluidity of this growth are our spotlight for today. Exodus is grateful to be affiliated with several Board of Realtor groups in our fine home state of Colorado.
Fort Collins Board of Realtors
The Board of Realtors in Fort Collins is a membership organization that focuses on the growth of Fort Collins as it centers around the real estate market. Addressing housing issues of all kinds such as zoning and compliance issues, the FCBR is a interactive resource for its members and surrounding community. Including a host of committees offering various events, government resources and educational programs, the Fort Collins Board of Realtors is overseen by a unique entity called a Sustainability Committee and remains a pioneer in its work to create ecologically friendly business practices.
Loveland Berthoud Association of Realtors
The main mission of the Loveland Berthoud Association of Realtors is to help develop and promote programs that facilitate the buying and selling of property in Loveland Colorado. They believe that through education and support, it is possible to increase the integrity and skill level of these transactions which will ultimately create a positive effect in the community.

We put in time, effort and resources when and wherever we can and it is truly our delight to see the positive impact that we can make in the lives of those around us. Giving is a shared experience that benefits those giving and receiving. And as a leader in our industry, we strive to lead by example, putting our energy towards showing other businesses that we can make a difference by working together.
Last week we had the pleasure to participate once again in an annual event called the Fairy Godmother Project. With the careful organization this year on the part of Dee Valdez, this national phenomenon has once again found a home here in Colorado and we have been very proud to support its worthwhile efforts.
What is the Fairy Godmother Project?
The Fairy Godmother Project is a donation based annual boutique that gives economically disadvantaged teenagers who cannot afford expensive Prom and other formal event attire the opportunity to receive help. Various states participate in this drive and several collection points are set up throughout a city and then consolidated and showcased for selection. VIP teens can be nominated for special consideration and then the boutique opens to the public and survives completely on a “pay what you can” basis. The boutique in Loveland usually runs several hours per day throughout Prom season and is able to help hundreds of high school students from Northern Colorado and beyond. Including information on acne treatment, makeup and hair tips as well as other helpful additions for teens, this spring time event is a great way to support students during what could otherwise be a very insecure season in their lives.
Happy to have been storing dresses of all colors and sizes in one of our state of the art storage facilities, Exodus has donated both space and time to this worthwhile event and we are honored to contribute to its ultimate success.

As a premier Colorado moving and storage company we have the pleasure of active travel. Not only is there never a dull moment in our buzzing offices in both Denver and Ft Collins, we are in constant motion, with movers in the field who are helping our clients to relocate their belongings and their lives. Part of our commitment to the community extends to those that surround us. As a result, we become involved in rotary clubs, chambers and other organizations that seek to improve conditions within a township or metropolitan area. This Fresh Place Friday is dedicated to the lovely city of Loveland.
Named after William A.H. Loveland, a renowned American railroad entrepreneur, the city of Loveland was founded in 1877. A result of the construction of the Colorado Central Railroad, the city was known since its inception for its agricultural offerings including sour cherries and sugar beets. Encompassing over 25 square miles just South of what is now Ft Collins, this part of the Front Range Urban Corridor is now home to more than 67,000 Coloradans. Known today for its unique public art collections and exhibitions, Loveland attracts sculptors from around the world to visit its bronze casting foundries. This in addition to a host of outdoor recreational opportunities, it’s no wonder why Loveland is a great place to visit or move to.
As a result of its unique name, since Valentine’s Day of 1947, this city participates annually in a massive re-mailing program. People from all over the US send their mail to the Loveland post office where it is then opened and re-sent having been stamped from the “land of love”. Each year, the city also selects a high school senior girl to represent this tradition and to act as the official “Miss Loveland Valentine.”
Exodus is proud to partner with the Loveland Rotary, an organization that exists to provide humanitarian service and encourage high ethical standards in business and ultimately in the world. With the organizational creed of “Service Above Self”, the Rotary is lead by President Cynthia Guldy.
Proud to be the “Arts and Hearts” capital of Colorado, the Loveland Chamber of Commerce is another thriving force in the business community. With a strong focus on Advocacy, Connections, Education and Visibility, this organization works with it’s over 16,000 members to strengthen business and forge strategic alliances in the community. At Exodus we are happy to be aligned with such a focused group of people.

How do you know if the mover you hire is using professional move teams?
1. ASK! Are all of your move crew employees of your company? Are they on your payroll?
Unlike other movers who will bring on temporary contract labor, we put workers on our payroll. We know exactly who we have on our team and what their character is.
2. Have the movers been through training programs?
Once hired, our staff receives extensive technical and customer care training as well as a personal orientation by our CEO, Kris Boesch.
3. What screening process is used for hiring?
Here at Exodus, each employee undergoes a background check, drug testing, an in-depth interview and a reference check.
4. Is the company properly licensed?
We’re nationally certified. We’ve been recognized as a great mover by national organizations, like AMSA, the American Moving & Storage Association, which sets the standard for qualified movers. We’re one of two Colorado moving companies, and just 100 nationally, to be an AMSA “Certified Mover.”
5. Is the company an accredited Better Business Bureau member?
We’re also approved by the Mountain States Better Business Bureau and are registered with the Department of Transportation. The DOT sees that we’re adequately insured and that we regularly meet transportation safety requirements. Plus we meet the exacting standards of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC). In other words, you needn’t take our word for it: we’re certifiably trustworthy.
We think, actually, we know that we have one of the best moving teams in Colorado. Fort Collins, Longmont, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor …our employees come from all around the Northern Colorado area and care about the neighbors they are moving in and out. Meet the Exodus Moving staff, whose aim is to make your move worry-free!
More and more people are finding the need to have extra storage space, more than their homes or garage space can provide. There are different kinds of storage units that are offered but climate controlled storage units have many perks and advantages that make it well worth any extra costs. When you do become interested in receiving information on climate controlled storage units, make sure you are aware of what is considered the moving companies regulations of climate control and exactly what that means for your belongings. One of the advantages of climate controlled storage units is its resistance to harsh weather. Rain and snow cannot penetrate the roof and they are built above sea level.
Here at Exodus, we load weatherproof containers at your location and then they are kept in our secured and monitored storage lot, located directly behind our warehouse. We store them with us until you are ready for delivery. Even though our beautiful state of Colorado experiences extreme weather conditions, don’t be too surprised to know that there is a lack of climate controlled storage options from most movers in Northern Colorado. However, here as Exodus, we offer three options for clean, safe and secure storage: Climate Controlled Vaults; 20’ Ocean Containers; and 48’ Trailers. Any combination of these three types of storage containers can be used to meet your needs. So whether you are located in Loveland, Windsor, Greeley, Boulder, Wellington or Fort Collins, and no matter what your situation, can find an appropriate storage solution for you.
