Moving Containers

Moving Container – Is it For You?

Think of a moving container as a portable storage unit brought to you at the location of your choosing. You load it with your belongings, and it either stays with you until you’re ready to move, or the container company moves it off-site for you until they deliver it to your new location. The recognizable commercial brands on the market include PODS, Mobile-Mini, Go-Mini, and Pack-Rat, among others.

Moving Container – One of Many Options

When making a choice among service providers for help with your move, the container option is a standpoint between the extremes of the basic “do-it-yourself” move and a full-service move. It is one of several options for balancing convenience and cost. If you don’t need a full-service move, you may consider getting help for your specific needs: hiring labor, renting storage, purchasing packing materials, packing and crating, junk removal, handyman services, and vehicle relocation. (Click here to read about Moving Ahead Services’ expert solutions for all of the above.)

A Place to Put a Moving Container

A moving container on your property can be more convenient than going to a storage facility, but with one limiting factor: you need a driveway or other designated space on the street. If not, most moving container companies offer off-site storage space for your container until it’s delivered to your current or new location. Considering placement limitations, renting a moving container can be a reasonable choice over traditional storage units.

Consider the following factors as you decide whether a moving container is right for you:

Time and Flexibility of a Moving Container

Do you need more time moving from your current place to your new location? A moving container can be a great option if you have to remove your belongings, but can’t move them into a new space immediately. You may have painting or remodeling work that precludes an immediate transfer of goods from one location to another. Or, unfinished construction dictates your move-in date is fluid, and you want access to your items. A moving container avoids having to use a temporary storage unit in a location that may not be convenient.  It also avoids having to move your belongings twice: first into an off-site unit, and again out of the unit).

Immediate Access to a Moving Container

Do you need access to your items at all times?  When a container company places the unit at your location, you can access your belongings conveniently. Contrasting this option with a typical storage facility, a moving container can be a good option without having to drive to a facility. If you can place the container on the street, within city ordinance guidelines, you can use the container as interim personal storage over the short term. The benefit, in this case, is you move items into storage once and not a second time when you’re ready to move items into your new location.

Urban residents will have more difficulty finding a place to put the container versus suburban or rural residents, and street placement usually requires a permit or permission from the local government. Obtaining that permission can be a hassle and an extra step that you don’t want to endure while planning your overall move.

Cost of a Moving Container

Generally speaking, a moving container is less expensive than a full-service move and more costly than a typical storage unit. Also, a container is usually more costly than a traditional storage unit in a fixed facility. (Click here to explore Moving Ahead Services’ solutions, including short- and long-term storage in our secure, climate-controlled warehouses.)

In addition, the container company transports the container.   A trained professional drives, operates, and coordinates the operation, leaving you without the worry of managing a heavy truck. People also have used containers for reasons other than moving, including storage for furniture at a current home during a basement finishing or home remodeling. Your items stay on your property; you’re essentially renting additional space on your driveway.

If the POD or container is kept outside on your location and not in the off-site storage facility, it is susceptible to weather and environmental conditions. Rain, wind, insects, and rodents can find creative ways of ‘getting in’. Make sure you’re comfortable with your container’s quality, especially if you plan on keeping it over the long-term.

How to Spot Shady Movers

Shady Movers and How to Avoid Them

Is there an industry with a more deep-seated negative reputation than that of the moving industry?  Unfortunately, it is well-documented how “Shady Movers” have taken advantage of customers in the midst of the moving process.  It is especially true now when technology and marketing can give a clean facade to a dirty operation.   So what do you do?  You know you need professional help, more than just some trusted friends and a weekend.  How do you find the right people?  You need a company you can trust to handle all of your possessions.   How do you find the right company with the perfect balance of reliable service and reasonable price?

Anecdotes: “How Can I Know if They Are Shady Movers?”

You’ve probably heard the horror stories.  There are movers who never show up after taking your deposit.  There are movers who blatantly steal from you without your knowledge during the packing process.  Or, the truck they brought was not big enough and you have to find an additional, costly solution.  Worse still, a ‘successful’ packing process leads only to have your items held hostage or undelivered for weeks or months afterward!

What about bad business practices that are less obvious to spot?  You’ve researched moving companies and found one that seems legitimate.  It is Better Business Bureau rated with no infractions, and otherwise looks like a decent company.  Their estimator personally comes to your home, and soon after you have a written quote.  However, upon moving day, the driver’s and movers’ estimate about their time and materials is for more than your written estimate.  They inform the manager, who then calls you demanding a revision to the contract and asking for more money, all on moving day!  The disconnect is between the company’s own estimator and their movers, but as the consumer, you get the brunt of their mistake.  What if it’s not an honest mistake, but a common manipulation to exact more money from the consumer? 

Smart Consumer: Actions to Take

The first site consumers should research online is www.protectyourmove.gov.  This site is dedicated to educating consumers about their rights in a contract, what regulations exist for moving companies, and what different terms mean.  You can also use it to check a specific company’s qualifications.  At a minimum, a company should be licensed, bonded, and insured. 

In addition to researching online, ask for referrals from people you trust that had good moving experiences.  Read about companies to get a sense of a company’s core values and services.  However, online reviews and website descriptions soon can blur together or worse be deceptive.  You could be left not knowing what to believe. 

Here are several actions to take your research further, in order to avoid shady movers:

  • Ask about the whole team.  Are the people handling your items contractors or employees?  How long have they been with the company?  Are safety requirements and regulations consistently met?  How many complaints have been made? 
  • Consider your first impression of the company whether online or over the phone – is it professional?  Do you know who will take the ultimate responsibility for your move?
  • Consider their quoted price.  Does the firm have clarity in their pricing model and service costs?  Is the price too good to be true?
  • On moving day, are you going to feel like you need to supervise the entire process? Or can you hire a company that you trust implicitly?

Shady movers come in all forms, and some are less obvious than others.  What can you do to avoid a disastrous experience even if your research has companies that pass baseline standards?  Choose a firm based on a high standard of accountability and one that follows an ‘above and beyond’ approach to customer service. Don’t trade peace of mind for a cheap option with a shady mover. 

How Moving Ahead Services Protects the Consumer:

  • Longevity in the industry: For over 16 years, owner and CEO Jeff Collins has built a firm that focuses daily on its mission: sustaining high employee morale, providing competitive pricing and one-stop-shop relocation solutions, at the highest levels of customer service.  Hear from Jeff directly here and find out more about our team.
  • Moving Ahead Services is locally-owned and operated, not beholden to distant corporate interests, and is transparent about their process and operations.  With a strong emphasis on culture and team unity, Moving Ahead Services’s employee successes translate into customer success.
  • Every Moving Ahead Services employee is carefully trained and has been background checked.  Training occurs quarterly, and includes best-in-industry packing, carrying, loading and unloading instruction. Moving Ahead Service also conducts random truck checks to ensure the crews are packing safely. 
  • Many of Moving Ahead Services movers are CPR certified.  Crew leaders generally have over three years of experience, and some of the movers have been with the firm for over seven years.  As the industry is known for high employee turn-over, the staff at Moving Ahead Services has unusual longevity, is dedicated, and enjoys their work.  “Shady movers” can not say the same.

In the moving industry, the old adage is true: you get what you pay for.  Don’t make a decision based on price alone. Look for a competitively-priced company that stands behind their work.  Are you ready to start your moving process with a company that models integrity beyond reproach?  Contact Moving Ahead Services today!

Planning Your Move

Getting Organized for Your Upcoming Move

Moving is a stressful situation! With that in mind, it’s important to be as organized as possible! Organizing for your move will save a ton of additional headaches, and prepare you for your upcoming move. No matter if you are planning a simple local move, or a huge long-distance move, you’ll want to make sure you are prepared, and ready for the move.

6 Weeks Prior to Your Move

Prior to scheduling your move, you should put together a checklist of items that you plan to move. Along with items you want to keep, you’ll also want to make a list of items that you plan on throwing away, selling, or otherwise not moving with you. If you plan to pack all of your items yourself, you’ll want to buy enough packing supplies to handle all of your moveable items. If you know the setup of your new home, you may also want to plan on where you’ll put all of your items during the move. This will create less work for yourself as your movers can place your items exactly where you want them. At this time, you’ll want to start researching the neighborhood! You can look up banks, schools, parks and other important day-to-day locations you may use. Finally, you can also update your information with the IRS, and notify USPS of your address change to start forwarding mail and important documents.

3 Weeks Before Your Move

About 3 weeks before your move, you should plan to return any items that you have borrowed. This includes library books, tools from friends, or anything else that you may not be able to easily get back to the owner after your move. You will also want to start devising a plan for your hazardous materials. Most moving companies are not legally allowed to carry hazardous materials, and it’s best to take care of these prior to your move date. Now is also a great time to start reaching out to your utility services. It’ll be important to call your electric, telephone, cable, and gas company to update them on your moving situation. Don’t forget to call the new utility companies to let them know about your move-in date!

1 Week Before Your Move

By now you should have a checklist ready, your utilities prepared, and all items returned to their original owner, with most of your items packed. Now we recommend planning for your post-move clean-up. We recommend cleaning rooms now to save time on your move day. Many apartments and rentals will charge you a cleaning fee, and trying to do this during your move can be problematic and not very time efficient.

1 Day Before Your Move

We experience the most amount of issues on the move date. This is why we recommend planning for your move day. Prior to your move day, you should ensure that your movers will be available and on time as promised. You should also plan to have your payment method handy, and an actual game plan on how you want to move. Knowing where your items will be going on the unloading part will allow the movers to properly plan and pack for your unload. You’ll want to do one final walk-through of your items prior to your move day, and ensure that all items are ready to go and labeled properly.

Moving Day

If you followed the above advice, moving day should be an absolute breeze! On moving day, you’ll want to make sure the movers have easy access to your home and are able to park closer to your doors. This will save time and back pain! Make sure you review the plan of action with your movers and be sure to give them any special instructions or accommodations you may need. Once at your unload address, you can start to unpack your daily used items, while the movers finish unloading.

Getting ready for a successful move is not a small task! However, if you plan, organize, and schedule you should have a very easy move! Using checklists, and planning ahead will save you tons of time, and in some cases, tons of money! Last, and not least, make sure your movers are licensed, bonded and insured!

Long Distance Moving Tips

How to Avoid Stress on Your Long Distance Move

Moving, in general, is very stressful. Whether its moving down the street or moving across the country, stress and moving will coincide. However, there’s something about moving all of your worldly possessions from East Coast to West Coast in a 26 foot box truck that may keep you up at night. While the stress cannot be fully removed, here are some tips that can make your long distance move a little less stressful.

Give yourself time:

One of the most important factors to moving across the country is time. Giving yourself time to plan accordingly, find an acceptable place to live in your new state, find where the best schools are for your children, or even finding the best route from your new house to your new job to avoid that dreaded morning traffic. One month should be the appropriate amount of time to get this research done and start planning your next steps. 

Movers for hire:

The next step would be to figure out the most cost effective option for your long distance move.  You may decide to rent a UHaul, pay someone to load your items or just load them yourself, drive it yourself, and again either pay someone to unload your items or unload yourself.  

Another option would be to hire a mover to drive your truck for you. You would still be responsible for renting the truck as well as the loading and unloading of the truck.

A third option could be PODS. Using PODS is one of the more cost effective options but it has its downfalls as well. There is no real guaranteed delivery date and once the doors of the PODS are closed the items could get damaged during transport if not loaded correctly. 

The last option is hiring a full service moving company to load, drive, and unload your materials with a guaranteed delivery date. While this option may seem a bit more pricey, it is also the most effective. With a good, reliable company, you will get your items on the agreed upon date.

Fortunately for you, the reader, Moving Ahead Services would be able to help you with any of the above options. We can help you load your rental truck or POD, or even help you unload it if it’s in the area of one of our four locations. We also have capable drivers to drive your rental truck for you. Lastly, our full service long distance moves speaks for itself, check our reviews online if you don’t believe us. 

So now that you have decided to move across the country, and have figured out the best cost effective option for you, whats next?

This or that?:

The next thing you need to do to make your cross country move less stressful is to decide what you actually want to move. Some people prefer to buy all new furniture in their new state and only move their essentials, such as clothes, dishes and glasses, electronics among other things. Other people may decide to empty their current home and take everything they have to their new home. Whichever person you are we, at Moving Ahead Services, can help accommodate your needs. 

Now that you have decided what you are moving, whats next?

Packing:

Packing is one of the most tedious things to do, especially when moving. Putting all of your loose or fragile items into cardboard boxes and shipping across the country is enough to wake up anyone from a deep sleep. Packing is something that needs thought and time. If this process is rushed it may end up in damaged items. Packing is one of the most important parts of the moving process. If it is not done correctly or rushed, then a disaster could happen. Well, some good news is that Moving Ahead Services offer professional packing services. Our packers are trained to ensure the safe transport of your valuable items. If you decide not to go with professional packers then there are plenty of resources online in order to protect your items during your packing and moving process. 

Inventory, inventory:

So, maybe we lied, packing may not be the most tedious part of moving. Depending on who you ask, inventories can be the most tedious part of the moving process. If you are moving by yourself, keeping an inventory as you go is the best way to keep yourself from forgetting anything. Inventory sheets are available online and there are several stickers that could be used to help you keep your accurate inventory.  If you are using the moving company route, any professional and reliable company will make sure to take an inventory of your items. The inventory is for your record as well as the companies. Many companies will have customers sign the inventory to ensure both parties agree that the inventory is accurate. Moving Ahead Services ensures that any large local job or any long distance job, large or small, has an inventory. We try our best to relieve the stress that moving causes, and we hope that we can do that for you as well.

Bring your car, without the added miles:

Some people are moving at a reasonable distance where they can drive their own cars. However, if someone is moving from Virginia to Oregon, then that might be a different story. There are some options when it comes to moving your car across America. One option is to find a bulk auto transporter. They will pick up your car and they will give you a time frame in which your car should arrive. Notice we said should. Sometimes, with these transporters, some of their communication is not the best and you may get your car at the latter end of that date range. Another option is certain moving companies may be able to tow your car for you. At Moving Ahead Services, we offer to have your car towed behind your moving truck and your car will be delivered at the same time as your items. All four wheels would be off of the ground and your car would be safely secured on a car trailer. We suggest that this is the best possible way to transport your car. 

All said and done:

After you have decided on what you want to do at each step and completed each step, the next thing to do is to enjoy your new home. Once your moving process is over, all you have to do is kick back, relax, and unpack your boxes. Enjoy some of the things you researched to do in your new city. Whether it’s to try that restaurant with great reviews, a hike in the state park, taking a stroll downtown. Take the time to enjoy the start of your new chapter. 

Tips for Moving Kitchen Items

Tips for Packing Your Kitchen

Packing your kitchen can be one of the most daunting tasks to complete during your relocation. We plan to cover some general kitchen packing tips to help eliminate some of the stress. Packing your kitchen can be time-consuming due to the number of items generally hidden away within your cabinets and drawers. Not to mention, many of these items are very fragile and sometimes expensive. 

Packing Your Food

In general, packing storing and moving your food items is generally not a great idea. Most professional movers will refuse to load any perishable food items into their trucks. (It’s the law) Perishable food items will spoil during transportation and can attract pests and rodents that could potentially damage your other belongings. 

Packing non-perishable food items is not a problem! However, you may want to consider the cost of moving these food items. Often it’s cheaper to re-stock these items new than it is to move your entire pantry. 

We are proud to partner with Move For Hunger, which takes non-perishable food donations for those in need. Learn more about helping Move For Hunger today! 

Packing Your Kitchen Dishware 

Your kitchen dishware is fragile and generally hard to move on its own. We highly recommend utilizing dish pack boxes, and paper pads to help prevent your dishware from breaking and moving around during your move. We recommend sorting all of your dishes first, so you can properly plan for which boxes each item will fit nicely into. Now is the time to toss out any damaged dishware! You can quickly wrap your dishware by placing your dish wrapping material on your kitchen table and wrapping each item individually. You may want to use packing tape to secure your protective wrapping. Finally, make sure that you label your boxes to make it easier to unpack once you arrive at your new home. 

Packing Your Glassware

Packing your glassware will be similar to packing your dishware with a few minor adjustments to ensure safe transport. You’ll want to go through your glassware and throw out any cracked or partially damaged items. You should also plan on padding each box that you intend to house your crystal glassware within. You will need to spread your packing paper out on a flat surface, and wrap each glassware in the packing paper by folding the excess packing paper within the open-end of the glassware. Doing so will help prevent the packing paper from coming loose during transit. We highly recommend filling any empty box space with bubble wrap or additional packing paper. 

Packing pots and pans

If you’ve made it here, you are almost finished packing your kitchen! Packing your pots and pans should be a relatively simple process! First, you’ll want to sort your pots and pans and ensure that any fragile items are separated. Much like your glassware, you’ll want to take two paper pads and wrap the item while packing the excess paper into the opening. Another tip is to pack your smaller pans into your larger ones to save on space. 

If you are overwhelmed or have time constraints on packing your kitchen, you can hire a professional packing and moving company such as Moving Ahead Services. We would be happy to help you pack, move and answer any questions along the way. Feel free to reach out to our office at (877) 643-4044.

Packing Heavy Furniture

Tips for Packing Heavy Furniture

When you’re ready to start packing heavy furniture, you will want to think ahead by following a few simple tips. If you follow these four essential tips, you’ll save yourself a ton of strain and headaches.

Disassemble the items

For large items such as bookshelves, beds, cabinets, dressers, and tables, you’ll want to start by disassembling the prominent large pieces. Doing this will make your moving process much lighter. You may wish to consult manuals to help you properly disconnect the main parts of your furniture.

Protect your items

You should review your furniture items and look for any areas that may be weaker, or may be prone to damage during your relocation. Locate these areas, and try to protect them with paper pads, or bubble wrap. Use packing tape to secure protection and help ease the moving situation.

Wrap it all

You should consider wrapping all your large furniture pieces with quilted moving blankets. Doing so will add an extra cushion of protection for your possessions.

Cover it all

We cannot stress enough the importance of covering all of your high-end possessions with moving blankets and paper pads. Your items will move during transit, and the extra layer of protection will be crucial in preventing your belongings from being damaged.

Finally, you should never attempt to move cumbersome furniture on your own. You should consider hiring a reputable moving company to prevent any damage or injury occurring during your move!

If you have questions surrounding moving unique are large items, do not hesitate to reach out to our professional moving consultants at (877) 643-4044.

Packing Supplies

Packing: Start with the right supplies

If you’d like your move to be stress-free, it’s essential to start with the correct packing supplies. Using industry-standard packing supplies will ensure that your move is safe and successful. 

Moving Boxes

Finding and using proper boxes will save you time and back-strain. We recommend finding strong and durable cardboard boxes that will be able to stand up to the weight of your items. If your items are too heavy to lift on your own, you may want to consider wooden crates and a professional moving company. 

Wrapping Materials

To prevent damage to your items, we suggest investing in durable wrapping material such as bubble wrap, shrink wrap, and quilted moving blankets. These items will keep your things safe while in the moving truck, or during hauling. The quilted moving blankets also serve as additional cushion and safety in case of accidents. 

Packing Paper

Paper pads and newsprint will ve useful when packing smaller items into larger boxes. These paper products will help you keep things safe during relocation and are quite light-weight. Newsprint will help keep dishware and other fragile items safe while loading them into bigger boxes. 

Packing Tape

Using industry-standard packing tape rolls will help you save time and money versus traditional tape. Packing tape will allow you to seal boxes safely, but will also come in handy when wrapping items in packing paper, and quilted moving blankets. Having a few extra rolls of great packing tape is never a bad idea! 

Mattress Bags

We highly recommend investing in a mattress bag during your move. A mattress bag will make your mattress more natural to move while keeping it spotless in the process. Mattress bags are incredibly cheap in comparison to a new quality mattress. 

The above items are the most basic moving supplies. We offer a wide variety of moving supplies for your next relocation project. Check out our store, or give our move consultants a call at (877) 643-4044.

Packing Your Bathroom

5 Tips for Packing your Bathroom

Packing your bathroom doesn’t have to be a complicated task when you’re moving. It’s often one of the last rooms to consider when you’re preparing to relocate. With this in mind, we created a quick list of items to think about when packing your bathroom. 

#1 Pack your must-have bag

The first step to packing your bathroom is to have each family member pack a must-have bag for themselves. This bag is essential for getting through the first and last days of your move. This must-have bag should include all of your day-to-day bathroom items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, body and shower soaps, make-up, deodorant, shaving accessories, and medicine. 

#2 Separate fragile items

Be sure to put extra effort into protecting your delicate items. Be sure to double wrap your mirrors in packing paper! Also, separate things and containers that may be prone to breaking during the move. Proper packing will prevent wet boxes and other items fro becoming damaged or ruined. 

#3 Pack liquids separately

The last thing you want to deal with in your new home is cleaning up a mess. You need to pack your liquids in a safe and leak-proof container! It’ll be in your best interest to avoid spills and leaks, and this can be completed by putting your half-empty bottles into zip-lock bags and making sure they are properly sealed. 

#4 Don’t forget your medicine 

It’ll be essential to pack your daily medication in your must-have pack. However, you may want to consider keeping other drugs close by during your move. You may want to consider including pain medicine and a first-aid kit close-by. 

#5 – Label your boxes

Properly labeling your boxes will help you find your must-have bathroom items easily after your move. Generally, your bathroom and bedroom items will be the first boxes to un-pack. You should plan on writing the contents of each box on the outside, and include whether the items are fragile or not.
