Long-distance and Short-distance Moving Tips
Growing up with a military dad, we moved all over the country. I went to 12 different schools before I went to college! It is easy to see how I learned a lot about moving throughout my life, and now that I am semi-retired, I decided to make a blog to share moving tips with anyone who needs them to fill my free time. I actually really miss moving around, because I always felt like after moving to every new area, I had the chance to become whoever I wanted to be. I also never had to worry about doing something embarrassing in school and being made fun of it for years! I hope you can learn from my moving experience stories and tips I plan to post here. Check back often!
Before you hire a moving company, you should always get an estimate. This way, there are no surprises when it comes time to pay for the service. The complexity of the estimate will vary by company. Some moving companies will give you one simple page with a few numbers on it, and others will give you a five-page estimate with a lot of text and explanation. Regardless, it's important to read and understand the estimate before you hire the moving company.
If you have an unfinished basement in your house, you may grow interested in finishing it when you know that your family could use the extra space and functionality. But, you may not be ready to get started with this kind of project when you are using the basement to store belongings.
Trying to find storage space throughout the rest of your home without creating clutter or overcrowding your items may not be possible.
