More moving tips

Seattle Select Moving Tips Part Two – Making Your Move Even Easier

Hi friends this is the second installment of more moving tips from Seattle Select Moving Services. Once again the importance of knowing the simple rules of moving, can make all of the difference in your next move. Of course letting the professionals of our Movers handle all of your Seattle Moving needs are the best bet around. Enjoy this second post, as we are sure you will learn some aspects of moving that will make your moving day much easier.

Don’t Forget to Arrange and Transfer School Records Two Weeks in Advance – Your children’s school records can take time to shift, so it’s important to start the transfer process a couple of weeks prior to the move. This will ensure a smooth transition, and that your children will miss as little of school as possible.

Don’t Forget to Get Snacks for Moving Day – Moves are tiring, and as such you will need energy, it’s important to have plenty of snacks and drinks so that you don’t have to make frequent stops to feed your family. The more you can focus on the move, the faster and more effective you will be, and the easier the move will be. Of course if you have Seattle Select Moving Services, your move will be as easy as pie.

Don’t Forget to Mail Your Change of Address Forms Two Weeks in Advance – The last thing you want is to have to be making a bunch of trips back to your old home. Instead it’s best to stay ahead of the game by changing your address before you even get into your new home.

Make sure and Cancel All Your Cable, Landscapers, Pest Control, and Newspaper Subscriptions – Don’t forget to cancel all of your previous services, or to inform the companies that you will be moving and then provide them with the new address. Otherwise you may end up paying for another family’s service, or that of an empty home.

Clean Your Stove Before You Move Out – Never forget to clean out your stove ahead of time, this is one of the worst things to walk into. You don’t want to leave someone else with a dirty, grimy stove on their first night in their new home.

Defrost your Fridge the Day of the Move – Make sure to unplug and clean out your fridge by the last day, as it will save on electricity before its turned off, and allow it to air out for the next tenants. If you are moving the fridge to your new home, it will give you a fresh start, and keep ice from melting during the move and making a big mess. Seattle Select Movers want to see your move go as smooth as possible.

Make Sure You Have Enough Cash the Day of the Move – Having the right amount of cash on moving day is important, in many cases you may be moving on a weekend and the banks could be closed, or may just be out of the way. And any time spent off route is going to add to an already exhaustingly long day of moving in Seattle.

Remember that a Moving Company Will Not Transfer Hazardous Materials – Moving companies will bot transfer your hazardous materials like gasoline, acids, and other harmful chemicals, so this is something to think about when preparing for your next move.

All in all Seattle Select Movers want to see you have the best move of your life into your new home. We are here to make the moving days painless, and the transition as enjoyable as possible.

We give a lot of moving tips

Seattle Select Moving Tips Part One – Making Your Move Easy

Moving is quite the chore at times, and Seattle Select understands this, as such we are here to make your move as easy as possible. And with our years of quality and professional service, we are able to give you tips that most people just don’t know. While many of these tips may seem like common sense, it’s easy in the rush of a move to forget these tips, and by doing so you can make your move a whole lot harder than is needed.

Here are the First Round of Tips from Seattle Select Moving Services

Use Small Boxes for Books – Smaller boxes always work best for books, that and bags, but the key is that you want to use smaller boxes as books add up in weight fast, and this case you do not want to risk injury. So a use smaller box when packing books, Seattle Select wants to see your move as painless as can be.

Always Stack Dishes Upwards – Avoid stacking boxes on top of each other, as they will often break and leave you with a mess when you go to unpack your kitchenware. Instead you can wrap dishes in towels or t-shirts and place in boxes vertically to avoid any breaks.

Use Smaller Boxes for Heavier Items – In many cases you may try to put heavier items in a larger box, and then fill it with smaller items. This is a bad idea as the larger boxes will tend to get off balanced, and because of the weight there is potential for back and knee injury.

Avoid Using Super Market Boxes – These boxes are a bad idea, as they can have rotten food stuffs. And even worst you never know what sort of creepy crawly critter could be looking in the corner. There have been several instances of pets being introduced to a home from the likes of a dank and dark super market box.

Avoid Used Boxes – Used boxes are a bad choice as they tend to ware, and because of this ware there is always the possibility of the bottoms falling out and injuring feet. Instead use fresh boxes, or better yet use some deluxe and durable moving totes from Seattle Select Moving Services.

Avoid Using Duct Tape – Always use packaging tape as duct tape tends to get messy and is hard to peel off. There is nothing worst then getting gummy tape residue all over a new carpet as soon as you move in to your new home. Packaging tape always is cleaner, and easier to remove, and leaves no risk of damaging the home.

Label the Top and Side of a Box – To make it easier on you, make sure you label the tops and side of the box. You’ll appreciate this as you begin to stack boxes; this can give you a much easier time when unpacking so you can plan ahead as to where your next box will go.

Don’t Mix Items from Different Rooms in the Same Box – Mixing items in different boxes just tends to add confusion and as such it’s a bad idea all the way around. If you have items in several boxes, you will either be forced to move boxes from room to room, or move the items themselves. In either case this adds a lot of time to an already long day.

After following these tips, the easiest thing to do is to hire Seattle Select Moving Services for all of your moving needs. Our professional and polite crew of movers can get the job done fast, and make it painless and easy for you and your family.

When is the Best Time to Move in Seattle

When is the Best Time to Move?
There is an l lot to think about when moving, and at Seattle Select we understand this. That’s why we like to provide you with consistent moving tips to help make your next move your best move. It’s funny …. But sometimes the simple tips are the tips that make all the difference. Some as simple as moving at the proper time can make your move a easy move vs. a frustrating move.
Here are some Tips to consider in regards to timing on your next move
What Time of the Year is It –
Even the time of year plays big part in the quality of your move. Take winter for example in Seattle, rain… rain… rain. And as we all know how much it rains in Seattle, we also know what a drag it can be sitting out in the rain while moving. Not to mention the potential damage that can occur to your things while they are getting hit by rain. This is why it may be better for you to consider a move during summer or late spring when possible.
What Time of the Month is It –
Believe it or not this can be a huge factor in moving. Consider this, most leases are up or begin at the end of the month or the beginning of the month, this means that a move at either of these times can be drastically more expensive than a move during the midpoint of the month. This is something you will definitely want to take into account, especially if you are on a tight budget.
What Time of the Week is It-
It should come to of no surprise that most people move on the weekends, because of this it will always cost more to move on the weekends. Whenever possible if at all, always try to schedule a move during the week to avoid the elevated price of a weekend move.
What Time of the Day is It-
Believe it or not even the time of day can have dramatic effects on your next move. Take for instance moving during rush hour traffic, this can cause short moves to become long drawn out processes. Also something to consider is heat, moving mid-day in say Arizona in the summer is going to be a lot tougher to deal with vs. early morning or say evening.
All of these tips are something to think about in your next move. Of course if you are looking to completely simplify the entire process than Seattle Select Moving Services is here to help make your next move a move of ease and simplicity. Simply contact us for more information or fill out a contact form on this website for further assistance. And once again thank you for your time and consideration in using Seattle Select Moving Services to schedule your next move.

Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work (Part Two)

Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work (Part Two)
Hey friends, hope you read the first part of this series in which we offer you some off the wall tips that most don’t think of. In the second part of this post we will continue on with five more tips that will complete the list of ten odd moving tips to help make your life easier… because here at Seattle Select Moving Services that’s what we are all about.
Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work 5-10
Bag your clothes –
I know we mentioned this before, but that’s because it really works something as simple as a black trash bag is great for keeping your clothes clean and dry as well as on the hangers. Simply pull the whole bag up around a cluster of clothes, tie around the top of the hangers and seal with some tape… And voilà, your clothes are safe and sound.
Take Pictures –
Putting back together your home after a move can be a lot like solving a jigsaw puzzle and who has time for that in the beginning? Instead try taking pictures of different areas of the house, living room, dining room and bedrooms just to start. You can also take pictures of dishes to make sure you can fit all the items back into the cupboards.
Keep The Fish Alive –
Many people will just flush the aquatic pets’ home down the drain, this is a bad idea. Why? Because fish are a great way to add familiarity to your new home, and a fish tank is its own tiny ecosystem complete with bacteria that is important to your fish. Instead save some of the water and the fish to add a sense of “home” to your new home. And the existing water will help ensure your fish endure the move.
Don’t Clutter Up the New Garage –
Avoid the tendency to put boxes in the garage. Instead take the extra minute to carry the box to its appropriate place in the house. This will help you dodge the pitfall of filling up the garage with boxes and never getting them unpacked.
Leave the Television in the Box –
Moving can get hectic and tiresome, so the key is to keep the comforts at bay. You can guarantee that if you unpack the T.V. and set it up early your move is going to take a lot longer. If you keep it tucked away for last you will get everything done in your new home and can use the big screen as a reward for finishing the set-up of your new home.

Seattle Moving tips

Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work (Part One)
Moving can be a hassle, and sometimes a tip or two can change it all… So today here at Seattle Select Moving Services we’re gonna share with you a few tips that may be a little “different” but will greatly improve your next big move.
Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work
Whine with Socks Please –
Typically whine goes well with cheese, but you can have that combo to celebrate the finishing of your new move. Instead try using your socks to keep your favorite stem wear safe.
Stack Plates on Plates –
Instead of painstakingly wrapping each plate separately from one another a great tip for this is to wrap an entire stack nice in tight in plastic wrap. Make sure to place some form of padding between each plate, newspaper can work as well as bubble wrap or even other Styrofoam plates.
Sheet Can be Used for More than Making Ghost Costumes –
Your extra sheets can be used to protect any piece of furniture in your home as well as a cover for your bed to keep it clean. Using sheets also helps in freeing up packaging space.
You Can Pack By Color –
Of course you can label every box, but this can get time consuming and the letters may become illegible to read. Instead try getting some colored stickers and using those to color codes the boxes, of course you will want to create a legend on a note pad of some type. This can help eliminate confusion and make unpacking a snap.
Use wheeled Luggage for Books –
If you own one of those cool little carry-ons with the wheels and a handle you can use it for moving your books. Whatever you do avoid using heavy duffle bags as they can get way too heavy to carry and a hurt back never helped anyone move. Instead get your smaller pieces of luggage and try using those for books.
These tips are just some ideas to help make your next move a snap

Tips to help make your move better from Seattle Select Movers

Always Pack Ahead
It’s always best to avoid packing on the last day; there are certain things you can pack ahead of time to make your move less stressful. For example if you’re moving in the height of summer you can pack your winter clothes. To make things easier you can box up all your extra hygiene products and live out of a travel case for the last week.
Another tip: the last few days avoid buying excessive groceries as well as preparing meals that take massive time and utensils. Also clean your trash cans and waste baskets ahead of time, they are perfect for storing items while moving.
Maximize Your Wardrobe Box Use
Getting your wardrobe organized early helps make things much easier for you. It’s best to layer your wardrobe boxes, you can start with sturdier items such as shoes and boots on the bottom of the boxes, place them in bags to avoid dirtying your other clothes. Next pack your hanging items and make sure they’re tight to avoid them falling off the hangers. You can finish it off with some sweaters and purses to create a tight fit. This will make it easier when unpacking; if you need boxes don’t forget to ask about the durable easy to manage storage containers we rent at Seattle Select Moving.
Consolidate Cleaning Supplies
If cleaning your old house is a must put together a simple kit of cleaning supplies, paper towels and sponges. Clean everything as soon as possible, cupboards drawers and windows. Vacuuming can be done as the movers empty each room. Don’t forget the oven!
Use Your Luggage
Luggage and duffle bags are a great way to store bulky fabrics like towels, bed sheets and blankets. You can also put our favorite outfits in a suitcase or duffle bag for easy access for the next week while you’re unpacking.
Keep Important Papers With You
These important papers could include: records, diplomas, birth certificates, your moving estimates and new job contacts, as well as utility companies, bank records, current bills, closing papers, and phone numbers. It’s best to keep these with you for easy access in case you need them.
