The holidays can be a stressful time, so the last thing that most people want to do during this time of year is move to another home. But unfortunately, sometimes people don't get to choose when they have to move. If you have no other choice but to move during the hectic holiday season, follow these tips from our movers in Denver: Keep the Holiday Spirit Alive If you're moving with kids, they may be upset that the holidays are being overshadowed by the move. Lift their spirits by staying festive throughout the move! Play holiday music as everyone starts to pack their belongings and make seasonal treats to snack on when you need a break. Doing this will show your kids that moving will not stop you from celebrating the holidays as a family. Move After Christmas The week between Christmas and New Year's is the slowest week of the year for moving businesses, so this is the perfect time to plan your move. Rates may be lower since moving services are not in demand during this time of the year. Plus, a lot of people take this week off of work so they can spend more time with their loved ones. This means that many of your friends and family members should be available to help with your move! Keep the Holiday Decorations Up At some point, the holiday decorations will need to come down so they can be packed away in boxes. But if possible, keep some of them up until everything else in your home has been packed away. If the holidays haven't already passed by the time you get to your new home, put the decorations back up as soon as possible so you can celebrate your first holiday season in your new home. Make Donations Don't start packing until you have sorted through all of your belongings to decide what you need and don't need. Any items that fall in the "don't need" category should be donated to a non-profit organization. These organizations are usually happy to accept donations of all kinds during the holiday season, so find time in your schedule to stop by and make a donation before you move. Watch the Weather The weather may not cooperate if you are trying to move during the holidays, so keep an eye on the forecast. If it is going to be snowy or icy, be careful when moving boxes into the truck since the ground will be more slippery than usual. If movers are helping, clear the walkways before they arrive to make it easier for them to transport boxes to the truck. Learn more about the hidden costs of moving during the holidays. Follow these helpful tips to make the process of moving into your home less stressful during the holiday season. For more advice, get in touch with the experts.

Before packing your belongings or reserving a Colorado moving truck, it's important to set a budget for your move. But if you've never moved before, calculating how much you will need to make it to your new home can be challenging. Most people remember to include the cost of packing supplies and transportation, but there are other expenses that are often forgotten. Here's a look at some of the lesser-known expenses that need to be included in your Colorado moving budget: Moving Insurance Moving companies often provide insurance to customers, but many people will need to purchase additional coverage to ensure their valuable belongings are covered. Therefore, it's important to make room in your budget for additional insurance coverage. Talk to the moving company and your home insurance agent to learn about the various types of insurance and find the best deal. Should you purchase more moving insurance to cover your move? Cleaning Costs Are you renting the home that you're currently living in? If so, it's recommended that you clean it prior to moving out so the landlord does not deduct cleaning expenses from your security deposit. This is another expense that many people forget to factor in when calculating a budget for their move. If you plan on cleaning it yourself, calculate the cost of cleaning supplies. Otherwise, add the cost of a maid service to your moving budget. Child or Pet Care Moving with small children or pets can be difficult, which is why it's best to pay a little extra to have someone watch your kids or pets on the day of the move. This will allow you to focus solely on the move so it goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. Packing Services Moving on a tight schedule can be tough, so you may end up needing a professional to help pack all of your belongings. Most moving companies offer these services, but it will cost you extra. Even if you don't plan on using packing services, it may be a good idea to factor them into your budget anyways. This way, you will be prepared for the worst-case scenario. Lodging People who are moving far away may need to stay in a hotel overnight if they can't make it to their new home within one day. Make sure that you figure out how long it will take you to get to your new house so you know whether you will need a hotel room for the evening. Remember that you will most likely be tired on moving day due to the stress of moving, so you may not be able to travel as far as you normally would. Now that you know the expenses that need to be factored into your moving budget, it's time to get in touch with the professionals to plan your move.

Are you planning to move to a new home? Deciding when to move can be tricky. Instead of just picking a random date on the calendar, think about how much time you will need to prepare for the move. According to Eden's Moving Services in Denver, here's how much time you will need to prepare and execute a move to a new home: Eight to Twelve Weeks Most moving companies suggest giving yourself eight weeks to pack all of your belongings, transfer utilities to your new home, and make the move. Giving yourself eight weeks should be enough, but if you can stretch it to twelve weeks, that's even better. A family shouldn't have any trouble packing up and moving in eight weeks, but the extra time will allow you to get more done before the move. For example, it may not be possible to sort through all of your belongings and host a yard sale to get rid of items you no longer need if you only have eight weeks. But, with four additional weeks, this is a possibility. Families who are only given eight weeks to move may not spend as much time calling different moving companies to find the best price, either. When time is limited, these are the tasks that are often skipped over even though they are so important. For this reason, it's best to give yourself twelve weeks so you can do everything on your checklist instead of cutting corners to save time. Minimum of Four Weeks Many people are forced to move in a hurry if they are reassigned to a new job or transferring to a different school. If you don't have the luxury of taking eight to twelve weeks to plan your move, don't panic. In this situation, it's recommended that you give yourself a minimum of four weeks for a move, although this is not ideal. Packing all of your belongings and moving to a new home in four weeks will be stressful, but it's doable. If you have four weeks or less to plan the move, it's best to hire professionals to help with every step of the packing and moving process to ensure it is done as quickly as possible. Learn how to decide your move out date when moving house. Giving yourself at least four weeks is also important if you are currently renting a home. Most landlords must be notified at least four weeks in advance if you plan on breaking your lease. If you give your landlord less than four weeks of notice, it's possible that you will be charged a fee for breaking the lease at the last minute. Moving can be expensive, so try to avoid incurring any additional expenses. Now that you know how to choose a moving date, it's time to get in touch with the professionals.

Moving can be a pain, which is why many people decide to hire a Colorado moving company instead of doing it on their own. This is a decision that you definitely will not regret since professional movers make this process so much easier. However, if you are adamant about moving without any professional help, the least that you can do is learn how to load a moving truck like the pros. Follow these tips: Load Boxes From Heaviest to Lightest It's recommended that you always use standard cardboard moving boxes instead of alternatives such as plastic bins. Once you have purchased the boxes, start to pack up the belongings in your home. Begin to separate your boxes into three different groups as you pack: heavy, average, and lightweight boxes. This will make it easier to find what you're looking for when you're ready to load the boxes onto the truck. The heavier boxes should always be on the floor with average and lightweight boxes stacked on top. Of course, the lightest boxes should always be at the top where the stack is closest to the ceiling. Balance the Weight It's not a good idea to line up heavy furniture items on one side of the truck, and then reserve the other side of the truck for your bedding and pillows. Why? The weight of your belongings needs to be evenly distributed. If it's not, the driver may have a hard time controlling the truck. Pay close attention to where you are placing your items and make sure that everything is balanced to prevent accidents on the road. A good way to ensure the weight is distributed evenly is by thinking of the capital letter "I". Try to place heavy items inside the truck so that they form the shape of this letter. This means heavy items should be placed against the back wall, down the middle of the truck, and against the door. Read more tips to help you pack a moving truck. Bring Fragile Items With You Wrapping fragile items such as paintings, vases, and lamps in padding may be enough to protect them until you arrive at your final destination. But, if you don't want to take any chances, it's best to keep fragile items with you in your vehicle or in the driver's cabin of the truck instead of loading them in the back. Fill Empty Spaces The last items that you should load onto a truck are those that can be stuffed into empty spaces. This includes bags of clothing, bedding, towels, and any other items that can squeeze into small spaces without being damaged. Once everything else has been loaded onto your truck, peek around for holes and fill them with these items. Loading your belongings into a moving truck can be a hassle, so it's best to leave this task to the professionals. Contact Eden's Moving Company to discuss local and long distance moving services.

Moving into a new home can be expensive. To keep costs as low as possible, it's important to accurately estimate the size of the moving truck you need to rent from a moving company. Renting a moving truck that is larger than necessary means you will be paying more for a larger truck for no reason. On the other hand, renting a truck that is too small means you will need to take multiple trips in order to transport your belongings. How can you make sure you choose the right size? Follow these tips:   Look at the Moving Company's Guidelines Most moving companies will post guidelines that customers can use to get a better idea of what size truck to rent. These guidelines typically will tell you what size truck you need based on the number of rooms you are moving. For example, a moving company may tell you to rent a 10-foot truck if you have a studio apartment and a 14-foot truck if you have a one or two bedroom home. Learn how to estimate moving truck size. Make A List of Large Items The moving company's guidelines may not always be accurate. For example, a person with a studio apartment that is packed with bulky pieces of furniture may not be able to fit all of her belongings into a 10-foot truck. To be safe, make a list of all of the large items that you plan on taking with you. Then, talk to the moving company and explain that you are not sure if you should follow their guidelines based on the amount of stuff you have. Let them review your list and ask for their recommendation based on the number of large items you have and the size of your home. Consider the Clutter You may be surprised by how much stuff you have in your home that you no longer need or want. Getting rid of these items could mean that all of your belongings will now fit inside a smaller truck. Keep this in mind when looking at the company's guidelines. If a lot of your stuff is being donated to charity or sold before the move, it may be wise to choose a smaller sized truck than what the guidelines suggest. Don't Forget Outdoor Items Many people have grills, patio furniture, bicycles, and other items that they need to transport during their move. If you go strictly by the moving company's guidelines, it's possible that the items inside your garage or outdoor shed won't fit inside the truck with your other belongings. Therefore, people with a lot of outdoor belongings may want to choose a truck that is one size larger than what the guidelines suggest. Now that you know how to choose the right truck for your move, it's time to get in touch with the professionals.

Many people spend months researching local moving companies until narrowing down their options and hiring Eden's Moving Company to pack and transport their belongings. Once you've scheduled your moving day, it's important to learn what you need to get done before the Denver movers arrive. Here's a list of tasks that should be complete: Get rid of unwanted items. It's pointless to ask the movers to pack up and transport items that you no longer need, so go through your belongings prior to moving day to get rid of these unwanted items. How can you decide what you should get rid of? Most industry experts recommend parting ways with anything that you haven't used within the last year. Learn how to sort and get rid of stuff before you move. Determine what to do with hazardous and perishable items. Many professional packers will not transport perishable or hazardous items. Talk to the moving company that you have hired to determine if the movers will be able to pack these items. If not, take the time to make other arrangements for these items before the movers arrive. Donate the perishable items to a local non-profit that supplies food to the needy. If you have hazardous items that you no longer need, research how you can safely dispose of them. Take inventory. Before the movers arrive, make sure you have a good idea of exactly what you are asking them to pack and bring to your new home. You don't have to grab a pen and paper to create this list—it's best to either use an Excel spreadsheet or an app such as MoveAdvisor that is designed for this purpose. Pack a bag of important items. Moving can be exhausting, so by the time you arrive at your new home, you probably won't have much energy left to unpack. Don't spend the first night at your new home digging through boxes looking for a phone charger, medications, or toiletries. Keep all of these important items in a small bag that you can carry with with you throughout the move. Don't put this bag inside the moving truck—bring it with you in your vehicle so you can easily find the items that you need without having to ask the movers for help. Create a "do not pack" space. Are there certain items that you would like to pack yourself? If you don't want the movers handling certain belongings because they are valuable or fragile, make sure that you keep these in a "do not pack" zone. It's a good idea to move all of these items into a room by themselves and then tell the movers that they don't need to pack anything inside that room. Now that you know how to prepare, it's time to get in touch with the professionals to schedule your move.

Packing everything you own and moving into a new home can be incredibly stressful—especially if you're not an experienced packer. Fortunately, there is a way to take the stress out of packing. How? According to movers in Denver CO, all you have to do is avoid these common mistakes: Mistake: Procrastinating Packing is probably not your idea of fun, so you may find yourself putting it off over and over again until moving day is right around the corner. But, this is not a good idea. Putting this off will make it more stressful since you will have to rush to get everything done in time. It's also more likely that you will break something since you will be doing everything in a hurry. Prevent this problem by starting a few weeks before your big move. Start off small by taking artwork off of your walls and wrapping up fragile vases and picture frames. If you pace yourself and do a little bit at a time, it won't seem so bad. Learn more about the top 5 moving mistakes and how to avoid them. Mistake: Packing Everything You Own Don't make the assumption that everything in your current home needs to be brought with you to your new one. There are bound to be things that you no longer need or use, so there's no point in packing these items up and bringing them with you. This will create more work for you when you arrive at your new home and have to waste energy unpacking items that you don't need. Before you start putting your belongings in boxes, sort through everything and take out anything that you don't need to bring with you. Mistake: Using Alternative Packing Materials Moving can be expensive, so it's understandable that some people try to cut costs by not buying packing materials. But, you should never try to use alternative packing materials that you find around your house instead of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, and other supplies. Packing materials are designed to keep your belongings as safe as possible during the move. Other items, such as blankets, newspaper, and garbage bags, are not. If you care about keeping your items in good condition, stick to traditional packing materials instead of trying to cut corners. Mistake: Using Vague Labels Be specific when labeling the outside of each box that you pack. You may think that you will remember what you meant by "miscellaneous kitchen" when you get to your new home, but you probably won't. Don't spend the first night in your new home digging through boxes looking for something. Plan ahead by using labels that clearly describe what is inside each box. Now that you know how to avoid these packing mistakes, are you ready to plan your move? If so, it's time to get in touch with the professionals.

Businesses often need to relocate in order to move closer to their customers or find a space that will fit their growing company. But before you go, there are certain parties that you need to notify. Denver movers from Eden's Moving Company recommend notifying everyone on this list before moving your business: Customers Of course, businesses must notify customers of their upcoming move. Even if your customers don't have to visit your physical location in order to do business with you, they may need to know where you are moving so they know where to send payments or how to find you. Service Providers You will also need to notify all of your service providers of your future move so your business can continue to operate without interruption. For example, if you don't let your internet service or office supply provider know about the move, it may be hard to do business with no supplies or Wi-Fi. Make a list of the service providers that bill you every month so you can keep track of whom you need to inform. Insurance Companies At the very minimum, your business should have liability insurance, which means you will need to notify the insurance company that you are moving to a new location. The insurance company will need to see your new location so they can send you an updated estimate if the cost of your coverage has changed. Don't wait until the day before the move to let your insurance company know. It's best to get this out of the way as soon as possible so you don't have to worry about whether you are covered or not once you arrive at your new location. What kind of business insurance do you need? Banks Another party that will need to be notified in advance is the bank. Let your contact at the bank know that you will be moving so they can update the information on your account and send you blank checks with the new address. It may take a few weeks for them to have the new checks printed, so give them as much time as possible so you have everything you need before the move. How to Notify These Parties Some parties—such as banks, insurance companies, and service providers—should be notified directly via phone or email so you know they got the message. However, it would be difficult to call every single one of your customers to notify them of the move. Instead of contacting each customer directly, simply update your website, social media accounts, and email signature with your new address. This is a quick and easy way to ensure that anyone who interacts with you on a regular basis sees that you are moving. Have you notified everyone on this list? If so, it's time to get in touch with the professionals. Contact Eden's Moving Company to discuss local and long distance moving services with our team of professionals.

Have you ever wondered why so many people hire professional movers in Denver CO instead of trying to move on their own? Hiring movers is more convenient, but that's not the only reason. Moving can be dangerous if you don't have a professional's help. Here are some of the injuries that you can sustain if you try to move your belongings without the pros: Back Injuries The boxes that are filled with all of your belongings will be much heavier than anything that you life on a regular basis. Even if you're strong, it's possible to seriously injure yourself while moving boxes if you don't use the right lifting technique.To prevent injuries, it's important to keep your back straight and bend at the hips and knees only when squatting down to pick up a box. Once you have a good grip on the box, begin to stand up by slowly straightening your legs. Make sure to keep your back straight at all times so you don't accidentally injure the soft tissue in your lower back. Unfortunately, many people aren't familiar with the proper lifting technique, so they end up injuring themselves by moving everything on their own. Learn the proper lifting technique here. Foot Injuries Getting a good grip on a cardboard box can be difficult--especially if it's heavy and you're struggling to hold the weight. As a result, many people who choose to move without the help of a professional are at risk of dropping these heavy boxes onto their feet. Depending on the weight of the box, it's possible that you could break a bone in your toes or feet, which is a painful injury that can make it difficult to finish moving on your own. This is especially common among people who choose to wear flip flops or open-toed shoes while moving since their feet are not protected in these shoes. But unfortunately, injuries can happen even if you are wearing the right type of shoe if the box is heavy enough. Other Injuries Some boxes are bigger than others, and if you attempt to move a fairly large box, its size could make it hard for you to see the path in front of you. This means if there is an obstacle in your way or a sudden change in elevation, you may lose your footing and fall to the ground. People who slip and fall can suffer serious injuries--especially if they hit their head or land on their back. Depending on how you land, you may sustain head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, or soft tissue damage. To prevent these traumatic injuries, work with a professional who knows how to safely move boxes. Now that you know why you need to hire movers to protect yourself, it's time to get in touch with the professionals.

Moving can be stressful and hectic—not just for you, but for your neighbors, too. As you move out of your current home and into a new one, it's important to keep your neighbors in mind so you don't disturb them during your transition. Here are some tips to keep your neighbors happy provided by the best movers in Denver: Move during work hours Stay out of your neighbors' way by planning your move during normal work hours, which are on weekdays between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you move when most of your neighbors are at work, you won't have to worry about making too much noise or disturbing them with all of the commotion. Plan for parking Do you have a driveway for the moving truck to park in? If not, then you will need to plan where the truck will go in advance. Neighbors may get annoyed if you block half of the street with a large moving truck or if you take one of the few parking spots that are available in front of your building. If this is the only option, then try to notify your neighbors ahead of time so they know that you will need a spot or will be parked in the street on moving day. Say hello and goodbye Before you leave your current home, try to find time to say goodbye to the neighbors that you've connected with over the years. Even if you don't have a close relationship with your neighbors, it's still polite to say goodbye to the ones that you have been friendly with. Remember, moving day will be fairly hectic, so you should probably get your goodbyes out of the way a few days in advance. You should also make an effort to introduce yourself to your neighbors at your new house. This doesn't mean you have to go up and down the street knocking on people's doors, but you should stop by your next-door neighbors' houses to say hello. Learn how to greet new neighbors here. Clean up Neighbors don't like when someone in the neighborhood makes a mess because it makes the entire community look bad. Before you leave your home for good, make sure that the yard looks tidy and your trash has been taken to the curb. Do the same at your new home and don't leave any moving materials such as boxes, bubble wrap, or moving blankets scattered outside.   Control your pets The front door to your home may be left open as movers come in and out, so you will need to make sure your pets don't run outside. Loose pets could run into the neighbors' yards or even worse, the streets, which is an annoyance to everyone in the neighborhood. Now that you know how to move without disturbing the rest of the neighborhood, it's time to get in touch with the professionals.
