Expediting a Domestic Relocation

Monday, February 20th, 2012

In most moving situations people have the time to carefully plan out and organize their domestic move for months in advance. These are situations in which we move voluntarily with a lot of advanced notice. Some moves, however, are a result of extensive external pressure. This can be due to financial reasons, medical issues, employment or disaster. Circumstances like these don’t allow much if any time to plan for a move, making it almost impossible for an individual to finish a relocation on their own successfully.

Getting professional help is a crucial component of successfully completing a domestic move on extremely short notice. The first step should be to contact a global relocation service, as they have the tools and expertise necessary to coordinate the door-to-door delivery of all your household goods on short notice. They can arrange to have your things delivered to whatever place the situation calls for. They can also help you figure out how to get help with any other aspect of your expedited relocation that you need help with.

Minimalism and Moving: A Perfect Match

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Have you ever been in some one’s house and wondered they could have ever moved all of that stuff in there? They have huge wooden cabinetry, large and expensive entertainment systems, expansive stoves and other large items that look almost impossible to move. Hopefully, people who have homes like this don’t move often, but if they do, it must be a nightmare. For the frequent mover, having a lot of heavy and hard to move items would be suicide, not just physically, but financially as well. Hiring movers and trucks can get very expensive.

It’s these reasons why being a minimalist is a huge advantage for people who move frequently. When it comes to moving in and out of apartments and homes, the less the better. Having only a few essential items saves time, money and the huge headache that comes from having to worry about the safety of all your things. Living the minimalist lifestyle isn’t for everyone though. Some people really appreciate and love having certain things in their lives and don’t want to give them up for the mere convenience of having a faster and cheaper move every once in awhile. For people who do want to become more minimalist, however, there are a few things you can do to start the process.

Minimalism at its core is about need over want. The first step in reducing the amount of clutter in the home is to go through each item and determine how important it is. There are two main questions to ask about each item. How often do I use this item, and how much do I need this item? If you find yourself looking at things you haven’t used in more than a year and they take up a good amount of space, it’s probably a good idea to get rid of it. Do this with every item in your home until you find yourself surrounded by the things you always use and find most important. The feeling can be liberating, especially when you are moving.

Saving Money When Moving Your Household Goods

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Movers are all too aware of how costs can pile up when going through a domestic relocation. From trucks to hotels, meals and boxes, tape and time, moving can be a really expensive endeavor. For most people, reducing costs as much as possible is just as important as getting all of their goods to their new home safely. There is one major thing that movers can do to save the most amount of money, and that is planning. Creating a plan allows comparison shopping, which can drastically reduce the costs of things like moving materials and trucks.

Properly creating a moving plan of action requires at least a few months. This will allow time to compare and contrast a large variety of moving companies and obtain quotes from all of them. It also allows time for the gathering of supplies. Things like boxes can usually be obtained for free either from work or when they are discarded by others. The time will also allow you to pounce on sales and get all of your other supplies at the cheapest time possible.

Domestic movers can also save money by consulting with a global relocation service. These kinds of moving companies can arrange the transportation of your household goods in the most cost efficient way possible. Most people outside of the moving industry simply don’t have the knowledge or connections to arrange multiple modes of transportation, which is required for moving to certain remote locations. A relocation service can arrange for door-to-door transportation of all your household goods at prices much more affordable than you would be able to find on your own.
