Moving Ahead Services and Our Community

Moving Ahead Services believes in giving back to the community, customers, and friends.  After all, you are the reason we have grown over the last ten years! In January, our professionals donated time and resources to an Air Force veteran that was in need of a relocation to better receive the care he needed. The Sandusky Ohio Veteran’s Home opened its doors 125 years ago to provide care for veterans of the Civil War. Today, the Sandusky Veterans home has over 400 residents, and during our visit, we got to see the beautiful Memorial Walkway that was opened in 2002 to honor all men and women that have served our Country.

As a veteran owned business, Moving Ahead Services was honored to be able to provide for such important members of our community. We were able to provide much more than a moving truck and general moving companies’ services!

As a locally operated business moving company, we strive to provide a positive impact on our economy. Our employees are provided the best in training and support, and every dollar spent is kept in the U.S. In addition, our relationships with local businesses and service providers allow us to build upon our customer base and expand our services to meet each and every need.

 

10 Tips for Saving Money on Your Move

Jeff Collins, owner of Moving Ahead Services, will show you what you can do to save money on moving with these 10 tips for saving money on your move.

1)    Clear out one room on the first floor that you’ll use for packing your items. Make sure that the space is large enough to give you a nice work space as well as a space that can handle many different box sizes.

2)    Keep markers, tape, and scissors nearby. Also have your newspaper, bags, and other packaging supplies ready in this room.

3)    Pack one room at a time. This way it will be easier to unload and unpack when you arrive at the new place. You might even color code your boxes by using different Sharpie colors to label boxes for each room.

4)    Check the bottoms of each box before you pack anything. There’s nothing worse than getting a box all packed and seeing the bottom fall out when you pick it up.

5)    Mark each box with the room that it is going to go in. You can even label each box with its contents.

If you follow these 10 tips for saving money on your move, you’ll be thrilled with the financial results. We guarantee it.

Providence House Fundraiser

The holidays are a great time of the year, and every year, Moving Ahead Services spends time at the Providence House helping with their Deck the House fundraiser.   http://www.provhouse.org

This year, the Christmas trees were so beautiful! Our favorites were the Mickey Mouse tree and the silver and blue trees. We delivered them to winners of the auction after the Providence House gala.

We always enjoy participating in the Providence House Fundraiser, as it gives us another chance to give back.
