WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN MOVING TO A NEW OFFICE:

Image
If your business has started to grow and expand, you may be ready to start thinking about moving into a new office building. With services from a company that offers office moving services, you can seamlessly transition into your new workplace. In order to determine whether a prospective commercial building will meet the needs of your company, you will need to carefully inspect the office space before you make the decision to move. Here is a look at three factors to consider when you are moving into a new office. Energy Efficiency When you move into a new office, you will need to make sure that your upgraded space is equipped with energy efficient windows, lighting, and HVAC technology. An energy efficient office will help you reduce your monthly utilities, while also improving the environmental impact of your business. Workspace Capacity One of the main reasons why companies choose to move into new office buildings is that they are in need of expanded workspace for their employees. To…

Should You Move Your Car via Open-Air Transport?

Image
For those embarking on a long distance move, the decision over howto move one’s car is an all too common dilemma. While some are able to drive it themselves, many don’t have the time (or patience) to drive thousands of miles across the country. And with all of the other demands that moving to a new place requires, it can quickly turn into a very big hassle. To make things easier on yourself, I highly recommend hiring a professional car shipping company to move your car. Many, if not most, car shipping companies will place vehicles on open-air carriers to transport cars from one place to another. These open-air carriers are typically 80 or so feet wide with a two-level trailer on the back that hauls all cars. You’ve most likely seen these auto transporters while driving on the highway. However, given the carriers’ lack of siding and roof protection, they do present a few challenges to potential customers. If you’re struggling over the decision of whether or not to move your car via open-…

Make Sure Your Company Is Insured and Competent:

Using a moving service can cut down on time and energy you need to pack and unpack boxes, and get settled in. There are also certain protections you have when you use a moving service. Your property is covered if it is damaged during the move in this very important occasion. In San Francisco and all the surrounding areas, it is incredibly mountainous with steep hills and multiple steps. Many of the buildings also have very narrow doorways. It’s not only can be a hassle, but it can also be dangerous and costly if you don’t know what you are doing. Professional movers have insurance. Their insurance typically covers your items if anything gets broken during the move. For many people, some of the items that are being moved are extremely valuable and irreplaceable. Even though that is the case, it is better to have some type of coverage on it, where as if you move it yourself, there is no coverage on it unless you have insured those items individually. You want to use movers who are fami…

How to Keep Your House Cool (Without Cranking the A/C):

Image
As noted in our article about weather proverbs, what the skies and winds are doing outside dictates a lot about our lives and daily actions. When it’s hot outside, and that heat seeps into your home, it’s hard to muster up the motivation to do just about anything. You’re damp, sticky, sweaty — it’s just plain uncomfortable. So are you supposed to languish in the summer months and blankly stare at the boob tube while sweat drips down your forehead? Of course not! If you have air conditioning (70% of U.S. homes do), you can always blast it and create a nice wintry environment for yourself. But that uses a ton of energy and jacks up your bills. Plus, the artificial chill just feels wrong when it’s so warm outside. Isn’t there a way to find a happy medium and be comfortable while still feeling like it’s summer out there? Darn right there is! Below you’ll find tips to keep your house cooler when the thermometer creeps up and up, ways to make your A/C use more efficient, as well as what yo…
