    "The painting/repair team assigned to us was so professional, polite and efficient. The attention to small details made our house look really great. Tom, Bill and the team really listened to our concerns, whether small or large, and eliminated them all. It is so delightful to have had such a positive experience. We appreciate it very much."

  • 12 Useful Tips for Moving Homes

    [caption id="attachment_2869" align="alignleft" width="310" caption="Tips for Moving"]Tips[/caption]

     

    In the process of moving? Is that dreadful, hectic day approaching? If you don't know already, but moving is one of the most stressful things a person goes through. Let's change that. Here are some tips. 

    • Move on a weekday when banks, utilities and government offices are open. U-Haul locations also offer a lower per mile rate on weekdays.
    • If you're moving locally, leave the power and water on at your old address a few extra days so you can go back and clean up after your move
    • Purchase boxes and moving supplies 2-4 weeks before your move.
    • Choose a 'packing room' ahead of time and box up a few things each day.
    • Use moving labels to mark each box with its contents and destination room.
    • To save time, rent a carpet cleaner at the same time you rent your truck.
    • If moving locally, leave your pets with a friend on moving day. Animals can become confused and frightened during a move.
    • Allow for extra braking room when driving a moving truck. Anticipate stops and allow a 3-second gap between you and the vehicle in front of you.
    • U-Haul moving trucks require up to 12 feet of overhead clearance. Watch out for drive-thru restaurant and motel over-hangs.
