LONG DISTANCE MOVING TIMELINE;:

Image
Nothing about moving long distance is easy. The tasks can pile up and overwhelm just about anyone going through the time-consuming task of planning a cross country moving job. Even taking time to plan out each part of the move weeks in advance, the process still creates stress and trepidation for even the most prepared of moving families. Use this timeline to plan your long distance move for the days ahead.
2 MONTHS BEFORE MOVING DAYTake inventory of all the stuff in your house. Create 3 categories: Keep, Donate, Sell. Tip:  Get rid of everything you can. The less stuff you have to move, the easier it is to move, especially across long distances. Map out where your furniture will fit with the floor plan for your new residence. The excitement will help you stay energized as the dregs of moving continues. Collect important family documents, including passports, birth certificates, insurance cards, financial records, legal documents, including for your pets and school records for your kids. …

What questions to ask neighbors when moving house?

Image
When moving house, you have the unique chance to create the home of your dreams – find the perfect place to live, set up your living space in a way that matches your practical needs and aesthetic preferences, decorate it to reflect your personal style, and turn it into a happy haven.

Before you can make your new place feel like home, however, you have to find that ideal place where you’ll be able to live happily and comfortably for years to come. And that’s not a simple task – not only do you need to get the right type and size of dwelling for you and your family, but you also need it to be located in the right neighborhood (a safe and prosperous area of the town, close to your workplace, with plenty of local amenities and entertainment options, etc.).

So, even when you find an affordable property that seems to suit your requirements, you still can’t make your final decision – not until you have learnt a bit more about the surroundings. The best way to do so is to walk through the neigh…

Choosing the Right Kitchen Counter Tops:

Image
When it comes to buying a home to start anew, there may be some big obstacles that get in the way. Most people tend to buy a fixer-upper house, and start from scratch. However, when it comes to renovating the kitchen, and you’re looking to get the right feel for the counter-tops, I have you covered. Many counter-tops come in various styles that may be pleasing to the eye. However, they can require severe maintenance when it comes to cooking and cleaning on them.

Getting the Right Look
When it comes to finding the right counter-tops for that new, pleasing look, you have a wide variety of options. For example, if you’re looking for a modern feel, keep it simple. By that, I mean with a solid color and a solid surface. Solid surface is usually built with Corian material and considered the go-to for affordability, and appeal. They’re also easily repaired when it comes to the wear and tear over time, making it inexpensive to the average income family.

If you’re looking for a step up from soli…

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.

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-…
