iMoving Tips for an Easier Move

 

One key to an easy move is to measure. This is one of the things which is so easy to forget. Movers have all sorts of horror stories about carrying the canopy bed across the country only to find they can’t get it through the door. Moving companies will do all they can to get your things into the new house; they will take off doors in seconds, but as they say, you can’t put a quart into a pint pot. If it is not going to fit you have a crisis. It is not an exaggeration –you will have to make a decision in moments.

 

Avoid the horrors by measuring. Often when you have made an offer on a house the owners will let you measure. Take advantage of their kindness. Here are some other things to help:

 

  • Pack a room at a time, that way you will get a sense of accomplishment which will help you to keep at the job. You also have some order when you get to the new place and hopefully, you won’t have to spend time looking for the coffee maker which was packed into the hamper for the baby’s room.

 

  • Decide what you need to carry with you well in advance. These might be your valuables or things that are essential like insulin or asthma drugs. There are some things you will just want to do for yourself. Plan well in advance.

 

  • The only exception to the above are things that will help in other places. Using T-shirts as padding for the bottom of the box which will have glasses in it is always a good idea. Use towels to protect plates and dishes. Use socks or the oven mitts for sharp knives. Be smart and safe too.

 

Things to Know About Aurora, CO

 

Aurora is 5,000 – 6,000 feet above sea level. You will need time to adjust to the altitude. People often forget to think about it, but actually, it is something you need to think about especially if you are a runner – you’ll wonder at first where all the oxygen went. Also, remember to hydrate. The climate is semi-arid, and you can leave a box of cereal open and it will not go stale, that’s how dry the climate is, so imagine what it is doing to you.

 

Talking of climate, you can expect 250 days of sunshine on average which makes it brilliant for the average 50 inches of snow that falls. Not surprisingly skiing and winter sports are huge and most people take advantage of the opportunity to get out there as much as they can.

 

If golf is your thing you almost can’t turn around without coming across a local course, but if you just want a really good walk away from it all, try exploring the 7,000 acres of parkland close by. In the summer you can find a walking trail and mountain bike trails easily. You can spend every spare moment outdoors.

 

On the practical side, you have only 30 days to get a Colorado Driving License so that is a task you need to get onto right away. Luckily you have 90 days to register an out of state vehicle, so there’s a little less pressure there. If you don’t drive, there is a light rail system to help you get around.

 

Oh, one final reminder, you will get every season in Aurora; you need winter clothing and flip-flops so make sure you do have some storage, you’re going to need it.

 

How To Find The Best Truck Rental Companies For Your Move

If you’re doing a move on your own, it’s likely that you’re going to be trying to figure out exactly what you need to use in order to haul everything. How can you be sure that you accomplish your goals? Are there ways to get a vehicle that can take care of everything that needs to be moved?

 

The fact is, getting a moving truck rental can be a really helpful option for both long distance and local moves.  You can find a lot of different types and sizes, which can help you to stay ahead of problems and make sure that you get it all accomplished. So, how do you find the best company for your purposes? Here’s a guide that can help.

 

How far are you going?

 

First, the distance of your move should be considered. Local moves are going to be much easier to find trucks for than long-distance ones. It’ll also cost much less for you in the long run (which we’ll explore more later in this post).

 

Long distance moves are not as complex as they used to be, so it’s important to check out what companies allow you to use their trucks for long distance moves in the first place. But, as soon as you have a distance in place, you’ll find it much easier to get other things planned out as you need.

 

Do they have a good reputation?

 

As you start to look at local moving companies and moving truck rental options, you’re going to need to start looking into their backgrounds. You don’t want to go with a company that is known for having dirty trucks or that their employees are rude to everyone that is going to come into the business in the first place.

 

Thankfully, the internet has a lot of great information that you can utilize in order to discover the information that you need in order to get everything worked out. You can connect with others in your local area via social media, or you can use forums or aggregator websites that work to provide you with reviews of these websites with ease.

 

Just be sure that you do some comparisons, and that you take a critical look at all of the information that you are provided during your search. Not only does it help you to get a better, fuller understanding of what you’re looking at, but it makes it a lot easier to know who you should listen to and what reviews you may want to ignore.

 

How big are their trucks?

 

The size of the trucks is an essential consideration when you start shopping around for which truck company that you’d like to choose from. In some instances, you’ll only need a small van in order to get everything where it needs to go, and so having smaller options available can save you both time and money.

 

But, not all companies have the smallest and largest sizes available. The most common size for a moving truck is 22 feet, with 24 and 26 feet coming close behind. These trucks have a lot of space and make it easy for you to get pretty much everything that you may want to take with you.

 

Beware of the larger end of the trucks that you may want to rent, however. A 26 foot truck is going to be the longest truck rental that you can get without having some sort of CDL in order to drive it. Typically, you can fit a 3 or 4 bedroom home’s items into something of this size.  If you feel like you’re going to need a truck that is larger than that, you may want to look into hiring local movers so that they can legally drive a larger vehicle for you.

 

How do they calculate the cost of your move?

 

The cost of renting a truck is going to be different than if you hire local moving companies to take care of your move. Since you don’t really need to hire anyone to load up, unload, and/or drive the vehicle, you’re going to be saving a bit of cash on the labor.

 

Typically, if you’re staying within a certain distance of your original home, you will just have to pay a flat rate for the vehicle that you’re renting, and then you’ll pay minimal rates for the mileage that you accrue. As a result, you could end up spending around $100 or less in order to rent your vehicle and get things moved into your new place.

 

For one way, long distance moves, it’s typically all based on mileage, but the mileage rate is a bit higher than what you’d see for those in-town or in-county moves. You may also have to pay extra for things like insurance, fees for blankets and other moving supplies, and other such things that you may need in order to complete your move safely and effectively.

 

Do they have other services and rentals available?

 

In some instances, you are going to need some additional rentals in order to get everything worked out as it should be. For example, if you know that there’s going to be a delay between the time that you move out of your current home and when you move into your new home, you will likely want to get storage services. Thankfully, some companies offer them for affordable prices.

 

Another rental you may need is a car trailer. Car trailers are trailers that connect to the back of the moving van and haul your vehicle along with it. These are great if you are by yourself or it’s only you and your spouse, but you need to take your vehicle with you on your long-distance move. It holds your car securely and it ensures that very little wear and tear happens to your car on the trip.

 

Are they affiliated with a national moving truck company?

 

In some cases, you may want to choose long distance options over local movers and their trucks. Why? Because national companies have full networks of other companies that they can help you to connect with and to ensure that you don’t have to find a way to get your truck back to the starting point after a long distance move.

 

National moving truck companies may also have multiple places where you can pick up a truck, so if you go to schedule a truck from the rental option in your town, you aren’t stuck. You may be able to get the correctly sized truck from the next town over and not pay any extra for your efforts. This saves a lot of time and money in the long run.

 

Are their vehicles licensed and bonded?

 

You don’t want to rent from a company that doesn’t have all of their paperwork in place as it should be. In short, you want to be able to check out the licenses that they have for their vehicles, and whatever type of insurance that they have for them as well.

 

The best companies will make this available for you, or tell you that you can ask without any sort of problem. Just see what it is that they have to offer and be sure that you talk with them about what you need to know in order to make a decision as to whether or not they’re the right company for you.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. Will I need to rent a truck if I’m hiring a moving company?

 

Likely not. On the whole, most moving companies have their own vehicles, which they will use in order to take care of their moves. In very rare cases, you may have to pay an additional fee if you need a truck that is larger and smaller than what they have in their fleet.

 

  1. What do I do with the truck when I’m done using it?

 

If it’s a long distance move, you’ll work out exactly where you need to drop it off when you put in your reservation for the truck in the first place. For local moves, you’ll likely just drop it off where you picked it up from. Either way, you want to have that all in order before you pick up your truck on moving day.

 

  1. What if I’m in an accident while driving the moving truck?

 

You will have to have some sort of insurance in order to drive a moving truck. It’s typically an additional fee, but it’s relatively minimal and covers everything. You may also want to check with your car insurance agency to see if they cover you while you’re driving other vehicles, like moving vans.

 

On the Road Again

 

Finding your moving truck is a big first step, and you want to be sure that you are doing your best to get ahead of problems. Planning everything out carefully will make it a lot easier and, in the long run, you’ll have more in order and ready to go than you probably realized was possible.

    Moving...just the thought of it can give you a headache, but, remember when the idea of starting over again, somewhere else, somewhere new offered you a sense of excitement? Let’s get back to feeling like that!

     

    Keep these 5 items in mind when you’re looking for the right team for your move. You might be able to find that (calmer) sense of adventure once you’ve found the right candidate. 

     

    1. Look for the professionalism you can trust.

     

    Ethics, respect, confidentiality, and a positive attitude should be non-negotiable elements when it comes to individuals and businesses that consider themselves to be moving professionals.

     

    2. From pricing to reviews and ratings, transparency matters.

     

    Look for teams and individuals who are transparent in all aspects of their business. Nothing should be masked.

     

    3. Respect for others directly translates to how belongings will be handled.

     

    This is a no-brainer, but an easy one to forget. 

     

    4. Expect a thorough walk-through.

     

    A moving estimator who skirts through a home tour may not quite understand the scope of the job. Someone who takes their job seriously will ask a number of questions to make sure they understand the inventory that will be making its way across the country or across town borders. 

     

    5. Don’t forget to do your homework, too.

     

    Often, movers estimate the total cost of the move by how much weight will be moved by truck. If you’re thinking about donating certain heavy bookcases or beds, give it away, donate it, sell it, or offer it to the new owners of your space before you tell the movers it is part of your inventory.

  • 8 Things to Look For When Trying to Avoid Moving Scams
    Before Your Move

    The whole process of moving to a new place can seem overwhelming and stressful, especially when you’re picking up your life and moving it elsewhere. When you’re getting ready for a big move, you are going to find that there are a lot of different things that you need to think about.

     

    One of the biggest concerns is that, now with the internet, there are a lot of ways that you can get scammed by “moving companies” that are not legitimate. These scammers come in a number of varieties, so how are you supposed to know who is actually going to take care of your move and who is just looking for your money?

     

    While there’s no absolute, surefire way to know what companies are legitimate and which ones are not, there are definitely some indicators that can give you a heads up.

     

    Here are 8 of the things that you’re going to want to consider when you’re trying to determine whether or not you’re dealing with a scam company.

     

    Smart Tips for Avoiding Moving Scams:

     

    1. Keep an Eye Out for Fake Credentials

     

    There are not a lot of credentials out there when you start looking at moving and storage options for your big move. Many times, scam companies will make up credentials to make themselves sound legitimate.

     

    In short, there are two credentials that you want to look for when you’re looking for legit companies: the American Moving and Storage Association and Better Business Bureau. If the company has high ratings and/or certifications from these entities, then they are definitely legitimate and you can go with them for your move.

     

    2. Talk with Friends and Family Members About Who They’ve Used

     

    One of the best ways to avoid scams is to talk to others about what companies that they have used for moving services in the past. Many people will tell you about their thoughts regarding the moving companies that they have used, chatting with you about what they liked, what they didn’t like and how they wanted to try and accomplish their goals. You can hear about the options that will work best and help you to make some solid choices.

     

    3. Use a Reputable Website to Connect with Moving Professionals

     

    When you use a reputable site like iMoving.com, you will find that there are a lot of pluses to the whole thing. One of the best things is that these reputable sites put a lot of time and effort into ensuring that the companies that they recommend are legitimate companies that do what they say that they are going to do.

     

    There is so much that needs to be done during a move, and everyone has different needs. So, if you use a reputable website, you can actually look at everything that is available, seek out what you need to get and make sure that, in the long run, you’re going to get some solid value and that you’re with a good company. 

     

    4. Be Concerned If the Cost of Moving is Way Off of the Mark

     

    Moving is a pretty pricey thing. Local moves can be relatively cheap – a couple of hundred dollars will usually cover everything that needs to be taken care of. But, long-distance moves definitely cost a lot more – estimates average somewhere between $1200 and $1800 depending on where you are moving, what you’re moving and how long it’s going to take to deal with everything.

     

    If a company lowballs the cost –for example, saying that a cross country move is only going to cost a couple of hundred dollars – you definitely want to avoid them because they’re likely just looking to get some money out of you without doing the work. Also, keep an eye out for overestimates as well.

     

    5. Don’t Agree to an Unusually Large Deposit for Your Move

     

    While many moving companies will require some sort of deposit, it’s usually no more than 5% of the initial move estimate – almost all of the companies that we at iMoving.com work with only require a small deposit in order to hold your date and do what they need in order to get you scheduled as needed.

     

    Talk with the company about your deposit and make sure that it seems like a fair number. You should be especially concerned if you see that they want the entire move as a deposit, or even half of the estimate – steer clear and go with a more reputable company in order to get everything worked out.

     

    6. Watch Out If The Contract is Incomplete or Doesn’t Make Sense

     

    Many times, moving companies that are not legitimate will send you a blank document, or one that doesn’t make a lot of sense in relation to the move that you have been considering. If so, then you may be looking at just another scam - they probably threw it together hoping that people wouldn’t read it and wouldn’t pay attention. Be sure that you look the entire thing over and see what they’re saying in the contract before making any sort of decision.

     

    7. Does the Company Have a Name or Do They Go By a Generic Name?

     

    What’s in a name? A lot, especially if you’re looking at a moving company. If they only appear to be called “movers” or “moving company” without any other sort of name, it’s likely that they are a scam.

     

    You want to be sure that you are able to look the company up, by name, so that you can see ratings and such. If you can’t find them on the web or via any other fashion, then they should also be something that you are going to want to avoid. It makes more sense and you can know that you aren’t going to lose money on whatever you’re trying to do.

     

    8. If They Don’t Offer to do an In-House Estimate, Steer Clear

     

    Moving companies will, more often than not, offer to do an in-home estimate for your move, especially if it’s a long-distance move. If they don’t offer at first, be sure that you say something. If they refuse, say it’s not necessary, or just tell you that it’ll be a number or flat rate, then you may want to avoid hiring them. Not only could it be a scam, but you don’t want to get low-balled (like we mentioned above) or end up paying too much after you were told a certain estimate.

     

    Be sure to have a mover them come in and take a look, especially with a long distance move, so that you can get a true estimate of how much that you’re going to have to spend in order to make sure that your move goes as you plan it to.

     

    Above all else, do your research. We have plenty of suggestions here at iMoving.com, and we can help you to find the legitimate, trustworthy moving companies that can assist you with everything that you may need here.

     

    Look around as much as you can so that you can learn as much as possible and, when you work out what is necessary here, you can figure out the details and know that you’ve got some options that will make sense for what you need to do and how you want to get ahead of everything.
