Moving Tips

Sometimes the best time to move is not always the most convenient time. If you are one of the lucky movers that will be moving around Valentine’s Day, no need to fret! You can still have a very romantic day, you will just have to get a little more creative in your romantic shenanigans. But all in all, it just adds to the excitement of your sentimental day.

Date Night Package
When you first move into a new place it takes a minute for it to really feel like home. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it is the perfect excuse to take a break from packing and break in your new place. Create a gift basket for your significant other that has your guys’ favorite snacks, movies, drinks, and knick-knacks. Then you can even go get your favorite take out and enjoy a relaxing Valentine’s in your new home. You don’t have to go and do anything on Valentine’s Day to make it special, just putting in some effort to show you care will go a long way.

At-Home Massage
A massage is the perfect Valentine’s gift, and chances are it is exactly what your partner needs. After days of packing, moving, and unpacking your muscles will definitely be tight and sore. Help ease your significant others stress and tension by giving them a massage a home. It doesn’t cost anything, and it will mean the world to them. If you are feeling extra romantic then set up the room with candles and music to set the mood.

Explore Your New City
There isn’t a better time to go explore what your new destination has to offer! Book a romantic dinner at a local restaurant, or just go on a romantic walk through the downtown areas. You will most likely be in need of a break from unpacking, and so getting out the house to distract you for a moment can be much needed.

Leave Notes
People always say it’s the little things that count, and this can come in handy for you. The day before Valentine’s day leave little love notes tucked in the top of boxes that your partner will unpack. Your partner will love the surprise of finding the notes and will appreciate your creativity and effort. Sometimes you forget to tell your significant other the little things you admire and appreciate about them, but this is the perfect opportunity to do it.

If you’ve just moved to a new house, you know how overwhelming it feels to be faced with the task of unpacking at the end. Moving is exhausting, so unpacking is probably the last thing you want to do. However, you’ll need to unpack at least the essentials if you want your home to be livable. Keep in mind that you don’t have to unpack everything in one day or even one week, you can spread the process out over a few days. You can make unpacking less stressful by prioritizing rooms, starting with the biggest items and using a packing checklist ahead of time.

From the moving experts at Crown Moving in St. George, Utah, here are a few more tips to make unpacking a little less painful:

  1. Be aware of what you’re unpacking
  2. You can do this by creating an inventory list before you move, so you’re aware of what is in each box. This way you don’t end up with a haphazard pile of useless items.

  3. Unpack the essentials first
  4. Bedding, appliances, and electronic devices are just a few examples of essentials. Anything you need to feel comfortable and get you through the first few days is essential.

  5. Start with the kitchen and bathrooms
  6. Your kitchen and bathroom should be functional before anything else, as a good meal and a refreshing shower are necessary for most people to feel normal and comfortable. When your kitchen is more or less “set up” it can serve as a neat, organized place for your whole family to congregate in and take a break from the disorganized mess that is moving in.

  7. Assemble your furniture
  8. No one likes building furniture, but it has to be done at some point. You might as well get it over with right away instead of leaving boxes of un-assembled furniture lying around for weeks or even months.

  9. Leave the garage and outdoors for last
  10. These are the items you’re not going to need for a while, so don’t worry about them during the first few days or even weeks at your new house.

  11. Don’t procrastinate
  12. You’ll never fully feel at home until you’re unpacked. Living with boxes around you creates unnecessary clutter, and it doesn’t look pretty either. Moving in gives you the chance to start fresh and create a beautiful, organized space that makes you feel safe and at ease.

Moving is never a walk in the park, but by general consensus, the kitchen is the most difficult room to pack up for even the most seasoned mover. Kitchens contain everything from expensive gadgets and sharp tools to perishable food and sundries. The key to the kitchen is to start packing up as early as possible because there are some items you can pack up in the beginning and some (like food) that you need to leave until the end.

Kitchen Packing Tips and Tricks

Here are some more useful tips on packing up your kitchen for a move:

Start Eating!

To avoid hauling excessive amounts of food and dealing with frozen items, prepare and eat as much of it as possible. If there’s edible food you don’t want, donate it to a food bank or shelter. If you take food with you seal open containers or transfer the contents to another container before transporting them. Make sure to evenly disperse cans into several boxes so they aren’t too heavy. Limit spending on groceries and kitchen supplies until you move and ensure that you leave behind enough daily supplies.

Declutter the kitchen

The first step in packing up your kitchen is to clean and sort through everything. Take everything out of cabinets and drawers and assess what is worth keeping. Rusty kitchen tools and pointless kitschy items really don’t need to go with you into your new house. Now is a chance to start fresh. Decluttering will reduce the number of items you need to pack and by creating designated piles to pack, donate and trash you’ll eliminate stress.

Pack Away the Seasons

Holiday dishes, glassware and utensils, summertime barbecue amenities and birthday cake plates are all items that can be packed up or placed in storage immediately. These are items you don’t need all the time, so packing those up won’t disrupt your daily routine.

Use Specific Moving Boxes and Techniques

There are unique, fragile items in the kitchen that you need to pack with proper boxes. Specially designed dish boxes and bubble wrap will protect your breakables, but you can also use dish towels, old newspapers or plastic bags. Stack containers inside one another to save space, avoid making boxes too heavy and pack cookbooks separately. You can also wrap knives in cardboard and tape to protect yourself from the blades. New moving boxes should always be used for kitchen items, as they are sturdier and less likely to break through.

Even if you’re only moving across town, moving house is a stressful experience. Crown Moving is here to make your moving experience easy and stress-free. You can prepare yourself for the big day and eliminate extra stress by reading the following tips:

Measure ahead of time

The advantage of a short-distance move is that you can easily measure your new space. This will save you significant time on moving day because you’ll know exactly where to place furniture, how much closet space is available and how your décor is going to play in.

Evaluate your belongings

You may not think you own that much “stuff”– that is until you start packing up for a move. We accumulate a lot of things, whether it’s mugs, board games, shoes, old papers or random knick-knacks. The smartest way to evaluate what you own is to take a mental inventory of your possessions and then triple it because you probably own more than you think.

Appreciate cardboard boxes

Maybe you think it’s a pain to track down large cardboard boxes but they will be lifesavers in the end. A large, sturdy cardboard box is still the easiest, quickest way to pack a lot of stuff all at once. Just make sure to pad and wrap breakable items before placing them in the box.

Prioritize items

Deciding what to move first is essential if you want to be efficient and reduce the overall stress of moving house. Things you will need immediately at the new house include scissors, box cutters, trash bags, utensils, cookware, toiletries, toilet paper, chargers, power strips, and tools. Put all of these things in a clear bin so you can see them and differentiate the items from the myriad of cardboard boxes. Labeling boxes by room will make unpacking much more manageable, as it allows you to take one room at a time without being overwhelmed.

If it goes in first, it comes out last

Whatever you put in first will come out last, so don’t put chargers, your toothbrush, essential toiletries or any other must-have items at the bottom of a box. Strategically think about what you use the most and what you don’t need right away and pack accordingly.

Remember the necessities

You need to be able to use the bathroom, shower, eat and sleep in your new place on the first night. Moving is tiring and stressful and being able to have a semi-normal routine will keep you sane and refresh you for the next day. Focusing on organizing your whole kitchen in lieu of setting up your bed will leave you exhausted and unhappy when it’s time to finally get some sleep.

Moving makes us anxious, but it is even more stressful for our furry family members. Dogs and cats are easily stressed out when there’s unexpected activity in the home or when they’re placed in a new environment. No matter what kind of pet you’re moving, it isn’t going to be easy. However, we have some tips to make the experience a little less nerve-wracking for our animal friends.

Make a kit

Prepare an easy-to-access overnight kit with enough food, litter, toys and grooming tools for your pet to be comfortable and calm during the first few days of unpacking.

Talk to the vet

If you’re leaving the area, inform your vet so you can take records and prescription medications with you. Also, ask your vet if they recommend another in the new neighborhood.

Keep the pet in a quiet space

To make sure your pet is not stressed out, keep them in the quietest area possible. You can leave them with a friend or at a kennel for the day, but if you’d rather not at least remove them from the noise and action. Put them in a quiet room on another floor with a closed door or inside their carrier or kennel. Check in on them regularly and make sure to feed, walk and play with them like you normally do.

Use your own vehicle

Cats and small dogs should be put in a carrier in the back seat and then secured with a seatbelt. Bigger dogs can be moved in a kennel in the back of the car, though you might need to put the seats down. Sometimes animals feel more comfortable if you put a blanket over the carrier so they can’t see the changing environment.

Let them adjust

If your pet escapes before adjusting to the new neighborhood, they can easily get lost. Keep them inside for a while so they can adjust. More and more people are keeping cats indoors for safety reasons, so moving is a good opportunity to get them used to only being inside.

Buying or renting a new place is expensive no matter how you go about it. When you’re house hunting, you’re probably not thinking about moving expenses because all you want is to find the best place, at the right price in a decent neighborhood. Once you purchase a home or sign a lease and pick a moving date, costs start piling up. Not all of these expenses are anticipated, so read our blog post below to learn more about costs that can sneak up on you.

Insurance Rates and Coverage

Insurance rates, including car, health or renter’s insurance, are subject to change when you move. Car insurance often changes based on population, income and accident rates in the area. Coverage for car and health insurance can differ on a state-to-state basis. Renter’s insurance also depends on where you live, so investigate rate and/or coverage changes as soon as possible.

Storage Costs

Self-storage units are a great option, but the costs can increase quickly, particularly if you need to keep belongings there for an extended period of time. Constant traveling to the unit can also raise your gas expenses and wear and tear on your car. Make sure to only store things that are absolutely necessary and try to find a unit near your new house.

Replacement Appliances and Supplies

You might want to replace old or broken appliances in your new home. You might also notice that your supplies are old and broken, but you now require them for the new house. It’s possible you may even need items that you did not in the previous house.

Change in Utilities

Utilities like gas, electricity, and water are necessary, but there are also hidden costs that can pop up. If you buy a larger house, you might be charged more for your utilities. To initiate utility service, you may need to provide a deposit. Cancelling or transferring services might also require payment. Keep careful records of utility bills and any that overlap to confirm you aren’t overcharged.

Mailing Address Change

Make sure you change your address and have your mail forwarded to your new address before you’ve completely moved in. You will receive all correspondence in a timely fashion and be able to pay bills without incurring late fees or losing documents. Even when the new resident is kind enough to return your mail to the post office so it can be forwarded, it still might arrive too late.

Moving can be a very stressful time. There are so many things that worry about in the current house you are living in and in the new house, you are moving into. Many things that you should do involving your new house are actually easier to get done before you move in. Here are a few quick tips on the things you should get done before you move into your new house to make the transition a lot smoother.

Utilities
A couple weeks before you move into your new house you should call and have your utilities set up. Sometimes the different utilities are separate companies so you want to make sure that you call each one. A lot of the time your realtor can be helpful here and provide you will the information for the area. Forgetting to have one of the utilities set up can make it so you get to your new house and do not have hot water for example, which is not the way you want to start off in your new house. There are also usually fees associated with setting up your utilities late, which you will definitely want to avoid. So take the time to have them set up to save yourself stress and money.
Aside from the regular utilities you also want to look into having your wifi and cable set up. If you research the provider you want ahead of time, you can schedule for the technicians to come set it all up either right before you move in, or the day you move in. This will help your house feel like a home from the get-go.

Address Change
Before you move you want to make sure you have your address changed. You can schedule the post office to start forwarding your mail on a certain date so that you can ensure not missing any of your mail. Also, make sure that your friends and family have your new address. This tip may not seem as important, but if don’t do it at the beginning while you are thinking about it, then you will most likely forget and have to send it out periodically to your relatives once you’ve moved in. You will definitely get annoyed having to give it out all the time, so save yourself some time and just get it done all at once. Also don’t forget to change your address with your credit card company, bank and anywhere that will be affected.

Plan A Party
A party may seem like the last thing that you want to worry about when moving into a house. But a party may actually be just the thing to keep you sane while moving. If you plan a housewarming party a couple weeks to a month after moving in then you will have the incentive to have everything unpacked by then. It is sometimes hard to motivate yourself to unpack all of the items that you just barely packed up, but having a deadline will help you get the unpacking out of the way. A party is also a way to make your house feel like your home. It will also make the adjustment easier, especially if you have kids.

Moving to a new home is an exciting fresh start, and everyone loves the chance to use their creativity to take a fresh step forward. A new home feels like a blank slate, but sometimes it can be overwhelming when it comes time to decorate. How can you make your new house look as beautiful as all the pictures you’ve seen? You can! With just a few simple tips, you can have the home decor you’ve always dreamed of.

Choose a color palette.

You’d be surprised how easy it is to create a cohesive, clean look in your home by following a color palette. Having a set of matching colors gives the room a united feel, whereas having randomly chosen colors for furniture and walls can cause a room to feel messy or disjointed. By keeping a color theme with the decorations, walls, and furniture, you will feel as if you hired a professional to do your decorating for you. You can find example color palettes or design your own here.

Learn to love the accent.

Sometimes finding colored furniture or repainting walls can be overwhelming. For people who are more conservative and enjoy their white walls or earthy colors, that can work well too! In that case, all you need to take the whites, blacks, and browns from boring to beautiful is a little accenting. Rather than worrying about a total makeover, find a few small places to add a color. This can be centerpieces, frames, drapes, or pillows. By adding just a small splash of color, suddenly the entire room looks sophisticated and intentional.

Celebrate your weathered furniture.

Moving into a new home doesn’t mean you have to toss out the old furniture. With just a touch-up, old, weathered furniture can become the most beautiful part of your living room. Give your old wooden chairs a new accenting pillow, and suddenly the entire chair has become a fashionably vintage piece. Let the natural wood texture of a worn table show under a fresh, white centerpiece of flowers and vases. Worn furniture can look intentional and classy by adding just a touch of new.
Embrace your DIY creativity with centerpieces and decorations.

This really is a lot easier than it sounds. Classy centerpieces and decorations can be made from random objects that you otherwise wouldn’t imagine using. This can be painting old jars white and using them as centerpieces, using old plates as wall decorations, or using old book pages to decorate vases. You can create a unique, stylish look by taking simple things and making them beautiful, and by extension making the entire room look carefully decorated. Look here for a variety of different easy, stylish DIY projects you can use to spruce up your new home.

Be consistent with your themes.

Consistency is key in decorating your new home. Just as you need to be consistent with colors, you need to also be consistent with the style. If one room is modern, keep it modern. If one room is meant to be vintage, keep it vintage. If one room is meant to be minimalist, keep it minimalist. Doing so will keep it looking clean without confusion and clashing.

Moving is a great chance for you to have the house you have always wanted. While Crown Moving takes care of the moving, you can focus your energy on the beautiful home you are ready to create. Decorating no longer has to be stressful, and you can begin your new home feeling fresh and confident.

Sometimes home moving can be stressful and tedious. You have to juggle all the details, pack an entire home, and move to a new, unfamiliar place. You may struggle to reign in kids and pets while trying to pack, and you may momentarily double-think moving altogether. However, we at Crown Moving of St. George want to see you succeed. Here are a few tips for how to turn this new chapter into an exciting adventure.

1. Draw out a plan – There’s no need to wait until you have boxes stacked up in your new house to figure out how you want to arrange it all. Take some time to let your creativity flow with your new home! Draw out a plan for your house, where you want that piano to go, how you want to arrange those couches. Instead of being overwhelmed with trying to figure it all out last minute while boxes fill up your living room, you can have a plan, move in smoothly, and have a relaxing moving experience. Have a plan beforehand of any changes you wish to make to the house itself, such as painting walls. That way, you are not forced to unpack unnecessarily before needing to move it all out of the way again. Doing so will mitigate stress and help you get excited to turn your new house into your home.

2. Pack with a Plan – You’ll be more excited to move in when things have been packed well so it just works naturally. If you know certain things will remain together in your new home, pack them that way. If you want your books to go in your living room, pack them in boxes meant for your living room. Label your boxes so you and your movers know where each should be taken. You shouldn’t have to be wondering why the silverware is now in the basement with old family photos. Save yourself from running around trying to locate your belongings because of lazy packing. If you pack smart now, you’ll be excited to unpack later. For more smart packing ideas, click here.

3. Hire a trustworthy moving company – Moving on your own will often lead to damages, stress, and a negative feeling towards the move in general. Instead of risking your happiness, call in professional movers that are recommended, trustworthy, and hard-working. Hire a home moving company who has experienced and respectful movers. For those moving in the western states, St. George’s Crown Moving can help with the packing, hauling, crating, and loading. On moving day, be friendly and kind to your movers–they want to do their best work for you.

4. Locate local areas of interest for you – Find places that you look forward to visiting, like amusement parks or museums. Also locate places that you will consistently need, like grocery stores. By becoming familiar with the city in which you will soon live, you will quickly feel like a local. The new life ahead will seem less daunting, and you’ll feel more like you belong there.

Let moving be a fresh start for you. Rather than starting it on a stressful, unhappy note, begin with excitement and planning for your new home. Most of all, take a deep breath and enjoy the moment. This is a big step! Good things are ahead! So take this chance to make the most of it.
