Tips for Your Cheyenne Move

 

  1. Get everything you need for packing in one trip

 

Packing can be overwhelming on its own, but throw in constantly running out of tape or boxes and it becomes worse. Avoid this by sitting down and making a list of everything you’ll need for packing. Then go to the hardware store and get every single thing on that list. By setting aside a few minutes, you can

 

  1. Maintain organization

 

Don’t try to pack your entire house at once. Try to pack one room at a time, not starting another until the entire room is complete. By focusing on one room at a time, you’ll be able to keep the packing process under control.

 

  1. Purge

 

Take the opportunity to get rid of things around the house you haven’t touched in years. Those boxes that have been sitting in the garage, basement, and attic since the last move probably don’t need to come with you on your next one. Any clothes you can’t fit anymore or are no longer a part of your style can be donated or sold. Moving is a great time to do a bit of spring cleaning.

 

  1. Pack an essentials kit

 

Be prepared for the first week of your move by packing a box that has everything you need in case unpacking doesn’t happen as expected. Maybe work is more stressful than it should be or you are busy wrapping up other projects that need your attention. In any case, this box will help you get through the initial week of your move.

 

  1. Pack liquids together

 

By keeping all your liquids in one box, any spills stay contained. You won’t have to worry about clothes, furniture or fabrics possible being ruined. To keep the chances of your liquids leaking low, wrap plastic around the openings of each container before putting the lid back on. 

 

What to Know about Cheyenne, WY

 

Beware of those Greenies

 

Moving to Cheyenne welcomes you to a friendly feud between states. Their rivals? The people of Colorado, jokingly given the name “Greenies” due to their license plates. Apparently, you can spot those things a mile away.

 

Great Nightlife Scene for Young People

 

Cheyenne has grown into a bit of a hotspot for the younger residents of Wyoming. It has some great bars you’ll want to visit including The Outlaw Saloon.

 

Frontier Days

 

Cheyenne boasts the largest outdoor rodeo in the world. Get ready for 10 days celebrating the American West. You’ll see some of the biggest names in country music, get to attend a rodeo or two and witness a grand parade that features original floats from 1926. It’s not every day you can see American’s past come to life.

 

Wyoming State Museum

 

The history of the state is preserved at this museum. You’ll learn the history of the state’s mining industry and examine how the presence of humans has affected wildlife. The museum is family friendly, offering hands-on activities for children to dress up in costumes or participate in scavenger hunts.

 

Paul Smith Children’s Village

 

Take your kids to here to learn about sustainability in a fun, yet educational way. They can wade in ponds, build sandcastles, sit for story time or find the secret garden that houses a puppet theatre. Every space is interactive and teaches them about gardens.

 

Cheyenne Botanic Gardens

 

The cactus and rock gardens are a bit expected in a windswept state like Cheyenne, but it offers more than that. The botanic gardens also showcase plants and events from the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s in three separate plazas. You’ll find an antique tractor and old steam locomotive and there are also community gardens where volunteers grow food, giving the surprise to senior citizens.

 

With everything waiting for you in Cheyenne, let iMoving help get you there as smoothly as possible in order to start enjoying it all.

 

Movers Are Worth Every Penny - iMoving

How much can you get done in an hour? Now, how much moving can you get done in an hour?

 

The answer is, probably not much by yourself, but when you hire movers for an hour, that extra set of hands can do a lot of good.

 

Moving is one of the few chores that should not be handled alone. The more help you can enlist, or in this case, hire, the better. Some people are intimidated by the idea of hiring professional movers, but you shouldn’t be.

 

Whether you need movers for the entire move, or just an hour, you will be amazed by how much they can accomplish. If you’re having trouble deciding how much help you need or for how long, it is helpful to use a moving cost calculator.

 

This takes into account where you’re moving to and from (the distance of your move), how large of a place you are moving (studio vs. 4 bedroom house), and the date you plan to move.

 

All of these factors determine the overall time and cost it will take to complete your move. Once you’ve got that nailed down, it’s time to bring in the professionals.

 

How much do movers charge per hour?

 

Movers do charge per hour. However, keep in mind that what might take you six hours to complete, should only take the professionals three or so.

 

Typically at least two movers will be assigned to your job at a time. Just imagine one mover trying to lift up your sectional couch, and then it will make sense why you need at least two. Although, this doesn’t mean that you’re paying for both their hourly wage. When researching what moving company to choose, be sure to read the fine print whether you are paying one flat rate hourly, or paying per hour, per mover.

 

Another factor to consider when it comes to hourly rate is whether you are paying with or without the moving truck. Without the moving truck means you are paying for labor alone which might be cheaper. Two movers with a truck might be $90 to $120 per hour, while two movers for labor only might be $60 to $80 per hour.

 

These rates will also vary depending on what city you live in. They can also be negotiated. The only thing that won’t change is that whether the movers are driving, wrapping, or unloading, the same hourly rate applies.

 

And don’t forget the hourly tip. It is important to tip your movers at least $5 per mover, per hour, which equals approximately 10 to 15%.

 

If this still sounds like a lot, here’s the national average on how your professional movers break it down:

 

  • 2 movers with 1 truck: $100 per hour
  • 3 movers with 1 truck: $145 per hour
  • 4 movers with 1 truck: $190 per hour
  • 4 movers with 2 trucks: $200 per hour

 

Remember- $200 for one hour might seem like a lot, but with 4 movers, it might only take them one hour.

 

Can you hire movers to move one item?

 

There’s moving and then there’s moving. Whether you’re transporting just one item or several, it’s still just called moving.

 

Several people assume that movers are only hired when there are several items to be moved, but the truth is, movers are hired all the time to simply move one item. Not to mention, this will significantly cut down on your cost per hour. Just think: how else are you going to be able to move that family heirloom grand piano without a little help?

 

The important thing to remember is that movers are there for your leisure. Just need help loading? A mover can do that. Only need help packing? A mover can do that.  Only got one item to move? A mover can do that too.

 

Movers are available for your every need, even if you only have one. Just keep in mind that there are certain items that movers just can’t move; whether singular, plural or otherwise.

 

These forbidden items include hazardous material, perishable foods, pets and plants, and irreplaceable items overall. It makes sense why movers are unable to move even these singular items.

 

Some can be a danger to the movers themselves, such as hazardous materials. While others, like prized possessions and other irreplaceable items, could be a detriment to you if anything happens to them. For these types of items, just handle it yourself.

 

No matter the quantity or size of what you need moved, just remember that movers are there to get whatever job you need, done.

 

How much should I pay someone to help move?

 

When it comes to moving, it’s important to define what you mean by ‘someone’. If you’re paying your friend to help you move, the answer is pizza. If you’re paying a professional, then there are several different ways that you may pay.

 

  • Family: You know your family better than anyone, so knowing what they expect to be paid is all based on you. Some family members might expect nothing, others a favor in return, or some, maybe just a family dinner.

 

  • Friends: Like family, your friends should be mostly easy to please. When it comes to paying friends, consider less money and more food. Friends are always down to help for pizza and beer, and maybe even just a little gas money.

 

  • Personal ad/services: If you have come across a personal ad, on Facebook, on Craigslist, or just in the newspaper, this might be a very cost-effective and reliable method for you. Just make sure you can perform some sort of background check to make sure their trustworthy. Typically you can pay these personal ads around $20 to $25 an hour, which saves you quite a bit of cash.

 

  • Professional moving company: Of course your safest and most effective bet is always to hire a professional moving company. These companies will charge anywhere from $60 to $120 per hour, but you’ll be more than satisfied with the way you and your stuff are treated; with professionalism and care.

 

Now that you know some of the ways to pay to help you move, just make sure you’re paying the right way. Any professional or ad service workers deserve to be tipped, so never take advantage of their help and professionalism.

 

Is it worth it to hire movers?

 

If you’re still wondering whether or not it’s worth your time and money to hire movers, the answer is yes, it is worth it.

 

Here are the cons to moving your stuff yourself: it’s a lot of work, it can take a LOT longer than expected, and if you thought just ‘renting a truck’ was easy, the costs of renting a truck can quickly add up.

 

On the other hand, these are the top reasons why people hire professional movers.

 

  1. Increase efficiency- If you’re not a packing professional, moving is like navigating a maze, in the dark, with no idea where the final destination is. It’s difficult to decide where to start? How to fit everything? And not to mention loading the truck is like playing the ultimate game of Tetris. Professional movers, however, are significantly more efficient because they’re pros. Let them do the heavy lifting and tedious packing, while you can focus on other things.

 

  1. Provide safety- Whereas if you move, you might be the only one responsible for your things, hiring professional movers might actually increase the safety and security of your belongings. You may purchase liability and other coverage, which is like having a backup plan for when things go wrong.

 

  1. Ease the process- Moving yourself can take weeks, months, and then when it’s finally moving day, you’re still not ready. Hiring professional movers can seriously ease your mind and ease the process. They will think of everything from the inventory list to the fastest route from point A to point B.

 

  1. Save time- Time is money, right? So why waste your time and therefore your money, by packing inefficiently yourself? With the help of professional movers you will feel like you’re saving money by how much you’re saving time. You can even get more things done at once since they’ll be packing and you can do well- everything else.

 

  1. And hey, the estimate is free- The best part about using professional movers is that the estimate is free. Get as many movers as you would like to come to see what you have inside your home, estimate how far you have to travel, and give you the best quote. You can compare quotes and even negotiate them, all before ever spending a dime.

    Moving Tips

    Equal parts exciting, nerve-wracking, stress-inducing, as well as being physically and mentally exhausting all at the same time, moving is no picnic. This is especially true when you begin to take into account all the things you have to take with you.

     

    Furniture, clothing, beds, personal belongings, knick-knacks, we all gather a lot of stuff as we live our lives. We don’t think too much about it until the time comes to assess exactly how much stuff we actually have. If you’re looking at your stuff for the first time, you might be realizing just how many things we actually accumulate.

     

    One very important thing you may plan on taking with you is your appliances - your refrigerator, dishwasher, and the like. Moving appliances is no small undertaking, and unless you have a lot of help, you may need to call in the professionals. Depending on your moving situation, calling in the help of local or cross country movers will be the first thing you should do.

     

    If this is your first time moving, you may be wondering how you go about actually finding the best moving companies to help you get your appliances moved. To make sure you’re up to speed, let’s walk you through a few tips that you can use to help you find the best movers for you.

     

    Think About the Distance of Your Planned Move

     

    When moving, the first thing to think about when it comes to choosing companies to help you move your appliances is the overall distance of your move.

     

    1. Are you moving locally?

     

    Is your move going to be in the same town, a few towns over, or in the same state? If so, you will want to choose between local moving companies.

     

    1. Are you moving long distance?

     

    If you’re moving out of state, you’re going to want to look at long distance moving companies to help you facilitate your move.

     

    Think About Other Services You May Require

     

    Are there any other services you might need help with? If you’re planning to use a moving company to help you move your appliances, then one of the main services you should be looking for in moving companies is loading and unloading services. These services are for people who may need help getting heavier equipment on the moving truck, since they may not be able to do it themselves.

     

    The biggest majority of moving companies offer a host of other services that you could take advantage of during your move, too. These include services like:

     

    • Whole home packing: This is a service to help you pack up the contents of your home, without you having to even lift a finger.

     

    • Special handling services: This service is for the safe handling of unique items like family heirlooms or antique furniture.

     

    • Storage services: Many moving companies also offer storage facilities to use anytime during or even after your move. This can come in handy for people who are moving a lot of things and need to make more than one trip.

     

    Sort Through Movers

     

    When you’re ready to begin sorting through potential movers, then you’ll have a few different things to keep in mind. Here are some ways you can easily identify the best moving companies:

     

    • Read as much as you can about the company online

     

    The internet is going to be your best friend when it comes to finding moving companies. Read about them on their website, make sure you check out any online reviews from previous customers, and more. Companies with plenty of great reviews on business review websites or on social media pages are usually good bets to work with.

     

    • Ensure the moving company is properly licensed

     

    Don’t be afraid to ask a moving company for proof of licensing and proper insurance if it isn’t readily available online. If a moving company doesn’t want to provide this information, then they may not even have it.

     

    • Always get more than one quote

     

    When getting price estimates from different moving companies, always try your best to get more than one quote from different movers in your area. If you have more than one estimate to work with, you will be able to choose the best price for your budget when the time to move finally rolls around.

     

    Make Sure You’re Aware of Additional Fees

     

    Moving your furniture takes a lot of labor and tools. When you are getting in touch with moving companies, make sure you inquire about any potential additional fees when you get your projected estimate. You want to make sure every penny and fee is accounted for so you know which moving company will work best with your budget.

     

    Frequently Asked Questions

     

    Moving your appliances isn’t just any small feat. It can especially be a confusing undertaking for someone who has never done it before, and you may have a few questions on your mind. Check out some of these common appliance moving questions and see if yours has already been answered.

     

    1. How do I get my appliances ready for moving?

     

    To make sure your appliances are ready to be moved, make sure they are cleaned thoroughly prior to the move, and unplugged. Refrigerators will need to be defrosted before being moved. Loose parts should be disassembled and stored away.

     

    1. Should I get a separate moving company for my appliances?

     

    It’s not necessary to get multiple movers. If you’re already hiring a full service moving company anyway, then they would be able to help you move your appliances, along with the rest of your stuff.

     

    1. Do I need to purchase extra insurance before moving appliances?

     

    Not usually, as most moving services already have their own insurance policies, and your homeowner’s insurance may even cover your appliances during the move, too. If you aren’t sure on some of the particulars, then you can always check before your move.

     

    Moving Your Appliances Can Be Easy

     

    Moving your appliances doesn’t have to be difficult. With the help of a great moving company, you can have your appliances and all of your other stuff moved for you, without you ever even having to lift a finger, if you so choose.

     

    When you choose the right moving company for the job, the rest of your move seems to just fall right into place.

    That Element of Control: Avoid Moving Scams By Knowing Just What to Expect

     

    Finding a reputable moving company means you’re looking for individuals and businesses that have your best interest at heart. No one wants to be taken advantage of, especially when prized and personal possessions are at stake. 

     

    When you’re able to minimize hassle and trust those who are helping you get to where you need to go, moving can feel stress-free. 

     

    1. Know the inside scoop. You’re not a professional mover, so when it comes to trusting those who are helping you out, you need to know what to expect. Do your research.

     

    The best way to safeguard your family and your valuables from “hostage-like” situations is to hire movers who have positive reviews and a number of “thumbs-ups” ratings.  

     

    2. Avoid paying large down payments, be suspicious of rates that seem especially low, and don’t shake hands on a deal if an individual won’t provide you an estimate on-site. 

     

    3. Be suspicious if the movers won’t take credit card.

     

    4. Make sure the moving trucks are marked and branded. Those companies that can’t afford marking their vehicles may not be in business for the long haul.

     

    5. Can you meet them in-person? When you’re looking to find out just what kind of movers you’ll be working with, meeting in-person can be the best way to size them up. Plus, in-home estimators can be more accurate than those who take estimations over the phone.
