Changing Your Address

Moving can be a lot of work, but if you plan ahead and spread out the tasks that need to be completed, it will make things go much more smoothly.

Changing Your Address

One thing you should do is call your banks, credit card companies, friends, and family to let them know your new address.  The post office suggests doing this 2-4 weeks before you move.   It’s easy to forget or leave someone out, so it’s a good idea to fill out a change of address form at the post office.  You can do it in person (for free) or do it online here: https://moversguide.usps.com.  An advantage of doing this is that you will get a welcome kit in the mail with coupons for stores and restaurants in your new town!

Magazines will be forwarded for 60 days, and most other mail will be forwarded for 12 months.  This will give you enough time to notify everyone about your new address.

 

 

 

Winter Moving Tips

Winter Moving Tips

Moving during the winter presents a unique set of challenges, but our winter moving tips can help make sure you and your belongings arrive at your new home safely:

  1. Hire A Moving Company.
    Hiring a professional moving company will minimize your time in the cold and relieve the stress associated with moving day. Get An Estimate!
  2. Weather Changes
    The temperature can change quickly in the winter. What starts as slush can turn to ice within a few hours. It also gets dark earlier in the winter, so plan trips to and from the new location accordingly.
  3. Wear Additional Layers
    It’s important wear multiple layers, even though you will be working hard on moving day. Consider wearing layers you can peel off as necessary. It’s better to start with too many clothes on than to deal with being cold all day. Make sure your ensemble includes a hat and warm gloves.
  4. Stay Hydrated
    Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you won’t sweat. Stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the moving process. It’s also a nice gesture to provide warm drinks or water for your crew to enjoy during or after the move (coffee, tea, or hot chocolate are inexpensive and will be much appreciated by your friends, neighbors, or professional movers).

With a few extra precautions, moving during the winter can be easy and safe. Be sure to contact Brown Box Movers for your next move!

How To Organize Items During Your Move

How To Organize Items During Your Move

If you stop, take a step back, take a deep breath and think realistically about your move, there’s a lot you can do to minimize loss. You can also reduce some of the stress associated with moving. It’s all about being organized.

Pack one room at a time

Sounds like a pain, right? And maybe it is, but you’ll appreciate your diligence once you’re in your new place.

Put a few empty boxes and packing materials in each room of the home you’re vacating. Start at one point in the room and work your way around the room until everything is packed.

You can also tape a piece of paper to the inside top flap of each box. Each time you put something in the box, make a note of it on the paper. When it’s time to unpack, you’ll know exactly what’s in each box.

Keep electronics and accessories together

With all the electronics and gadgets in our lives—laptops, TVs, game systems, music-streaming devices and more—there are many ways to lose the power cords and accessories that go along with them during a move.

We recommend putting all cords in a bag! For each item, get a zip-lock bag and load it with the corresponding cords. Then tape the bag directly to your TV, stereo, or what-have-you. This way, when you set up the items on the other end of your move, you’ll know exactly where everything is.

Make a master list of what’s in all the boxes and which room each box goes into, so you have control over what’s where and where it’ll go in your new place.

Label your boxes

On each box, clearly mark the name of the room where it’s to go in your new home—do this on the top and the sides of the box. Also, mark the box with “this end up” (arrows will help, too) or “fragile,” so proper care can be taken, reducing the likelihood your stuff will get broken.

Is going to all this trouble adding extra work? Probably. But we promise that once you’ve made the move and start unpacking, you’ll thank yourself for your hard work over and over and over again.

Benefits of Using Packing Services

Benefits of Using Packing ServicesProper packing, padding and boxing procedures are vital to protecting your belongings. Brown Box Movers can pack and unpack your belongings to make your moving experience easier. While packing & unpacking services are an additional expense, there are many benefits:

Save Time During Your Move
When moving, you are thinking about many things that must be accomplished to ensure a smooth move. Packing is a stressful, boring and annoying job that not all of us are willing to do. Brown Box Movers can free you of some moving burdens such as acquiring boxes and packing up every room in your house including the kitchen, bathroom and attic.

Packing Expertise
Packing services ensure that all items regardless of their fragility are packed safely and securely. Our packers also have immediate access to high quality packaging materials that you may not even consider when deciding to do the packing or not. Hiring packing services is the most important decision you’ll make when moving.

Quality Packing Services
One of the greatest stresses you will have to deal with when preparing to move is packing your stuff. In as much as it may seem all that easy, getting all that stuff into packing boxes is not the easiest thing to deal with. Again, you need to be more careful and cautious when it comes to packing and moving breakables like kitchenware. Hiring will ensure access to quality professional services which in turn guarantee protection of your investments.
