What to consider when relocating to the suburbs

April 14, 2019

Even though there are so many advantages of living in a big urban city which has so much to offer, suburban areas might be just as convenient, if not even more, especially when you want to move with your family. However, before you take this step and start your life over in a suburb, you should consider a couple of things, including the following:

1. Does your chosen suburb fit your needs?

First of all, you should do some research about several suburban areas and weigh the pros and cons of moving to each of them. Changing your place of residence is a huge step, so you need to make sure that you have made the right choice. Think about all your and your family members’ needs don’t stop until you find the suburb that meets all those needs and your lifestyle.

What to consider when relocating to the suburbs

2. The quality of healthcare

Before you make your final decision, it is of utmost importance that you check the quality of healthcare in the suburb you are considering moving to. In addition to quality, you should also check how far away the closest hospital is.

3. Take commute into account

In case you want to keep your job in the city but move to a suburb, you need to think about the length of your commute. Even if your job is not the main reason for your frequent visits to the city, it’s still worth considering how long it will take you to get there when needed. Just remember that spending too much time stuck in traffic will inevitably make you more stressed-out, so before you commit yourself to a long commute, think carefully whether it’s worth it.

4. Talk to local real estate agents

As previously mentioned, you should do some online research yourself, but it is also advisable to get in touch with local realtors and ask them to recommend the best neighborhood depending on your needs and your budget. Once you make this choice, they can also help you decide which house is perfect for you and your family. In case you can’t seem to find the house of your dreams that you would be ready to buy, consider renting one, at least for a start.

5. Check school districts

Finally, if you’re moving with children, don’t forget to learn more about the suburb’s school district ratings. It is a well-known fact that suburbs have more top-rated public school systems than large cities, so educational opportunities are a common reason why people choose to leave the city and move to a suburban area. Nonetheless, make sure you do some research about that particular suburb and its school district before the actual move.

So, before you find a moving company that will help you relocate to a suburban area, think about the previously listed so as to make sure your move does not become a nightmare, but a pleasant experience. Make a good plan, and you have nothing to worry about.

What not to pack when moving

May 21, 2019

The whole moving process can be very exciting but it is also quite stressful and tiresome. And during the whole chaos of moving and organizing everyone and everything, you need to pack. But what to pack? You can’t move your entire home, all of your belongings, from a fancy picture you never put anywhere to your kids smallest toys. You need take a moment and re-organize everything in your head, as there are certainly items that you can set aside, some to be left behind or thrown away, some special items, to be packed by the movers you hired.

When you’ve planned your move, hired a moving company, organized a moving day, discussed all of the moving services you’ll be needing, don’t forget to ask about them what items they cannot or will not transport. Because most, if not all, moving companies have a list of items they will not touch, ranging from dangerous goods to some household items that are known to break easily, no matter how hard one tries. Even though you should check for yourself, here’s a list of the most common items that moving companies won’t touch:

Acid

Gasoline

Lighter Fluid

Car batteries

Ammunition

Nail polish and Remover

Fireworks

Bleach

Pesticides

Loaded weapons

Some items you might find too valuable and should keep them close, some are too dangerous, and others are should just be left behind for obvious reasons. Here are a few tips to help in your decision-making process.

Flammables

Though obvious it needs to be said, items such as paints, gasoline, lighter fluid, paints etc. are highly flammable and should be left behind or even better, disposed of. If you don’t how, asking your local fire department is a good call.

Plants or flowers

You should always ask your moving company if they will move them for you. It is also wise to check if you can bring them to another country as some have laws against it. If you’re afraid for your green friend’s future, you can always donate them to a hospital or a school. Even better you can just gift them to a friend or a neighbor.

Perishables

Even though they aren’t dangerous at first thought, perishable foods and produce attract pests, such as rats, that can damage other property. Which a reason why they’re also found on moving companies’ ‘non-allowable’ lists. You don’t have to throw all of your food away though, you should consider donating it to a local shelter or a soup kitchen.

Valuables

This ranges from money, to jewelry, to important papers, notes and identification. All of these ‘treasures’ you should keep with you at all times during the moving process. It is highly advisable to make a photocopy of all your important documentation before the actual move. These things get lost most often during a move, as people usually pack them ‘somewhere’ in the moving boxes, or just forget them thinking they’re already packed.

Lastly, if you have any doubts and/or questions about what to move what not to move, don’t be afraid to ask your moving company, as they will surely be glad to help you out.

4 easy ways to pack a china cabinet

May 27, 2019

China cabinets are elegant and beautiful pieces of furniture that introduce unrivaled levels of charm and coziness into our homes. In addition to their captivating look and design, such cabinets often display one of the most fragile and exquisite pieces of furniture we own, from magnificent fine chinaware and crystal glassware to priceless heirlooms and expensive collector's items. Still, all of the prized items found on display inside a china cabinet have one thing in common, they are incredibly fragile and might break unless handled with the utmost care. And that is why, when the time comes for you to relocate your household belongings to a new home, one of the more challenging tasks you will need to complete before moving day will be to safely pack your china cabinet for the upcoming long distance move. The 4 easy ways to pack a china cabinet is to use the best packing practices of protecting the highly fragile chinaware, heirlooms, and collectibles inside it, and then wrapping up the furniture piece itself when you are getting ready to move to your new home.


Before packing a china cabinet

Before you begin packing your china cabinet for the move, there are just a few simple steps to follow to prepare for the difficult packing task ahead of you. Failure in completing these preliminary steps will result in losing time and unpleasant interruptions during the packing, which in turn will lead to even more lost time.

The first step is to inspect the content of your china cabinet. Empty your china cabinet of all items on display or in storage inside the piece of furniture, and arrange those breakables carefully on a table. It is time to take a closer look at what your china cabinet holds and to decide if all the fragile items are worth packing and moving. After all, some of these pieces may have lost their sentimental or monetary value over the years, which is not likely to happen but it is still a possibility.

The second step is to get hold of quality china packing supplies. It is important to prepare the required packing materials in advance so that you do not end up losing valuable time when you find yourself in the middle of packing your china cabinet for a move. Of course, you are going to need plenty of soft packing paper and a few rolls of bubble wrap but the cardboard boxes you plan to use will make a difference as well. If possible, get yourself dish boxes, which are cardboard containers that provide better overall protection thanks to their thicker double walls.

How to pack the china cabinet

Once you have set aside the items in the china cabinet, you are not going to pack and take with you, and the moment you have managed to gather the necessary packing materials, it is time to go through the main steps of packing china and crystal when moving. And the best way to pack your china for moving is to use quality tape to strengthen the bottom of each cardboard box, and this is a precautionary measure regardless of the condition of your moving boxes. Put one or two layers of bubble wrap on the inside bottom of each container to serve as effective cushions while your breakables are on the road. Put each fragile piece from the china cabinet, whether its a fine china plate, a cup or a bowl, crystal glassware or other valuable yet delicate items, onto the stack of packing paper, and cover it completely with at least a couple of paper sheets. Secure each bundle with tape but make sure no part of the tape comes into contact with the fragile items. For extra protection, put a final layer of bubble wrap over the paper bundle and secure it in place with tape, again. To pack all your pieces of fine china and glassware, repeat the packing steps above and remember the rule ''the more valuable and fragile a piece is, the more padding it will need''. Arrange the wrapped fragile pieces carefully into the dish packs by placing the heavier ones first. China plates should be packed on their sides and if you have to pack the second row, separate the two rows with a few thick layers of bubble wrap to prevent highly unwanted direct contact between the breakables.

When ready with one box, fill in any remaining space inside with wads of newspapers until the box content is 100% immobile. Shake the box gently to determine if anything inside may still be moving or not. Remember to label all boxes properly as fragile, handle with care, etc. Use a marker to draw the attention of whoever is going to handle it later, even if it is only you.

How to wrap your china cabinet

Once you have emptied the china cabinet and packed its content, it is time to protect the furniture piece. The following steps will show you how to pack a china cabinet when moving:

Standard china cabinets are two-piece furniture pieces with two distinctive sections, the display section with all the glass elements and the storage section underneath it. If your china cabinet can be disassembled, then do not hesitate to disassemble it, either by doing it yourself or by hiring professional assistance.

Cautiously, remove the glass shelves from the cabinet one by one, then place each glass shelf directly onto a thick blanket, remember to use protective gloves. Place sheets of bubble wrap or large pieces of thick cardboard over the glass parts and wrap them up in protective blankets. Then remove and protect the glass doors of your china cabinet too. If you choose not to disassemble the doors, then use tape or rope to secure them in place and prevent them from accidentally opening during transport.

Finally, use as many professional furniture blankets as you need to cover the entire surface of the 1-piece furniture, or the two disassembled furniture pieces. Remember to use packing tape to secure the blankets in place.

Moving the china cabinet

Once you are completely ready with the delicate task of packing your china cabinet for shipping, it is essential to know the best way to move a china cabinet is to hire professional movers to do it for you. A china cabinet is usually a very fragile piece of furniture that is made of mostly glass or glass and expensive wood that can easily be damaged. Surely, you do not want your beautiful piece of furniture to be damaged during transportation, and you surely do not want to see any of its valuable and expensive contents ruined. Professional movers are your best and safest option, so you should contact them to get a price estimate for the task.

3 things to do with your moving boxes after moving

May 27, 2019

After all the effort you have put into finding cardboard boxes to pack up and move all of your things, it will not make much sense to throw all of the boxes away without considering some effective ways to dispose of your used moving boxes after your move is completed. Even if you managed to acquire your moving boxes for free before packing up your things, selecting the laziest option to get rid of your boxes, such as dumping them in the nearest trash bin, is viewed as a huge waste. And, if you had to pay good money for them, then throwing them away is an even bigger waste.

Do you know that you have better options to deal with your cardboard boxes in a timely and environmentally-friendly way? Read these 3 ways to recycle your moving boxes after moving to get a better understanding of why recycling cardboard boxes will prove to be beneficial to you, your friends, and your community in general.


Why not just keep the boxes?

The moment you begin the task of unpacking the recently delivered moving boxes, you will soon find out that it is a bit of a struggle to keep all the empty cardboard boxes as there won't be enough space for all of them. It boils down to making quick decisions about each one as soon as you have emptied its contents. This will help you keep things organized by preventing the accumulation of cardboard boxes even before the unpacking process is at its midway point. Recycling cardboard boxes is about extending their life cycle by choosing to re-use, re-purpose, give away, or even sell them. Any of these recycling choices are better than just throwing them away, letting the trash collecting company do its job. Remember that you might not be allowed to do that in certain cities or states, so you would better ask about the regulations about the curbside collection of household waste in your neighborhood before choosing the easiest and quickest way to get rid of cardboard boxes.

Before you decide to throw the boxes away, think about whether you will be doing yourself a favor by discarding their enhanced versatility. You never know what might happen tomorrow, even if you are completely certain that you will not be moving any time soon, it can be a mistake not to keep a number of boxes that will easily survive another relocation or two. Put aside the boxes that are still in good condition, carefully break them apart, flatten them and store them in a dry place that has good air circulation. It is no secret that cardboard boxes are very good for storing and organizing household items of all kinds. Fill some containers with items you will not need, tape them well and label them appropriately. Make sure that the storage area where you plan to put the boxes, usually a basement or a garage, is dry because water will completely ruin them. Sometimes it takes a little imagination to re-purpose good packing boxes for home use. If you have small kids, it is amazing how much creative fun cardboard boxes can provide both you and your kids, build cardboard castles, robots, puzzles, you name it. They are a great way of speeding up the post acclimatization period through many hours of play.

Recycling moving boxes

If you have made the decision not to keep some or all of your moving boxes, then it is time to recycle them. Take advantage of one of the following excellent ways to recycle moving boxes:

1) Give them away

What better way to get rid of your unwanted cardboard boxes than to give them away to friends, colleagues or even strangers who will be able to use them to help with their move. When you meet your friends, tell them you have a few cardboard boxes to spare. Also, a brief Facebook or Twitter post can also do a good job in spreading the news around that you have boxes for them. It is super easy to let your coworkers know that you have just moved and you are willing to give away good quality packing boxes to anyone who is asking. There are several popular websites where you can list that you are offering free moving boxes. Be sure to check out Craigslist, Freecycle, U-Haul Box Exchange, etc. Charities are always looking for all kinds of unused or little-used donations. Each charitable organization has their needs, including storage needs, so your boxes might find a good new home. Get in touch with a few charities in your area and see if they want your surplus cardboard boxes.

2) Sell them

There is always the option of making a small profit out of your unneeded boxes. If you are willing to try to pocket some cash, here are a few good places to start Craigslist, eBay, local newspaper ads, etc. Another option is to check whether any of the local moving companies near you may be interested in buying some of your boxes, especially the ones that still look brand new. Remember that some of the boxes made out of thick cardboard can survive up to three to four moves.

3) Recycle your boxes

You will need to recycle all of your cardboard boxes that have been damaged during the move. Most cities provide special recycling bins for recyclable materials. Sometimes, the receptacle for paper is the one for thick cardboard too, but that is not always the case. If there are no such recycling bin near where you live, look around the neighborhood for them, chances are you will find one close to your home. Call the recycling centers in your area and ask them if they have any specific requirements for accepting cardboard for recycling. Some recycling centers require that all the boxes be flattened out, stacked and shaped into a pre-set size while others will refuse cardboard boxes with tape or staples. Some recycling centers might even require you to have a minimum number of boxes to qualify for a pick-up service. If you are not sure how to recycle the cardboard boxes you have or any of the packaging materials left after you have taken care of the unpacking job, then it is a good idea to call the movers you used and ask them for some advice. Most moving companies will provide the additional service of removing your unneeded packaging materials so that you will not have to worry about how to recycle cardboard boxes by yourself.

Now that you have read these 3 ways to recycle your moving boxes, you should have a few ideas on what to do with your no longer needed cardboard boxes. If you are yet to move and are looking for a moving company to help you with your relocation, then you have just found Cross Country Moving which is one of the best moving companies in the country.
