How to Find the Perfect Storage Unit for Your Belongings


December 12, 2018

The end of the year is a great time to start your lease on a new storage unit, with the vast number of deals and promotions going on. However, how do you find the ideal storage unit for you? To get started finding the perfect storage unit that will fit all your belongings year-round, follow the steps below, begin your lease for the new year, and hire a local mover to transport your belongings to the unit following the holiday season. 

Determine Your Spending Limits

Unfortunately, storage unit rentals don’t come cheap. Due to this, it’s essential you determine what your spending limits are, whether you figure this out on your own looking at your monthly budgets or with the help from a local financial institution. Once you’ve found your spending limits, you can begin figuring out how large you want your storage unit to be, which will mostly reflect how much you can spend on your budget. 

Figure Out How Large Your Unit Should Be

If you own a lot of belongings, you’re going to need a storage unit that has a significant amount of space. However, that’s going to run you quite a bit of money, which can be challenging if you’re on a tight budget. The best way to go about figuring out what size storage unit you should rent is figuring out how much stuff you want to put into your unit.  To do this, consider how large your budget is, and rent out a unit that’s somewhere in the middle. Although you might not be able to put everything you want into your storage unit, you can get as close to a packed unit away from your home as much as you are possible.  

Compare Different Storage Unit Providers

There should be plenty of local storage unit providers that you can begin comparing. After all, you don’t want to go with the first storage company you see. Start by creating a small list of local storage companies and comparing them based on affordability, dependability, customer reviews, among other factors. Make sure to take your time during this step; you don’t want to rush hiring a storage company that will be carrying all your most precious belongings. 

Get Local Estimates and Book Walkthroughs

With your list of local storage unit providers, you should start getting local estimates and book walkthroughs. This is single-handedly the best way to determine which storage company you should begin renting from. Although this can be the most tedious step, it’s crucial you take the time to do so. 

Without a doubt, there’s a lot of work that goes into finding the perfect storage unit for your belongings. However, with help from this short guide, you should have a much easier finding an affordable and reputable storage company to begin using for the new year. Once you can start renting out your unit, make sure you call Eden’s Moving Services at (877) 887-8248 to begin transporting your belongings over to their new dedicated space. You’ll be glad to have some much extra room in your house now!

How to Move Into a New Home Safely This Winter


December 5, 2018

Are you planning on moving into a new home this winter? Unfortunately, moving in the winter time is the most burdensome and dangerous time to transition into a new house. However, that certainly doesn’t make it impossible to do. Here are a few ways you can safely move into a new home this winter, from making a complete list of all your belongings to hiring a local mover in Denver. 

Make a List of All Your Belongings

If you have a lot of belongings to move into your new home (over a studio’s worth), you should make a list of everything you have to move. This will help you organize your move a little better and generally making the moving process a lot easier. Now, when you prepare to pack all your belongings, you can swiftly cross them out, and when you arrive at your new place, you know everything you’ve packed to prevent leaving anything out. After all, the last thing you want to do is accidentally leave a precious belonging at your old apartment. 

Hire a Professional Pet Moving Service

It’s not always the best option to move your pets to your new home on your own, especially if it’s out of town. Instead, you should hire a professional pet moving service. Although this may cost you a little extra, it’s well worth having a professional pet mover transport your dog or cat to your new place. 

Hire Local Movers to Transport Your Belongings

When it comes to moving your belongings, you should consider comparing different moving companies in Denver. Although it may be tempting to save money by making a few trips and moving your belongings on your own, it’s not recommendable, especially in the winter. You should instead consider the advantages of hiring local movers, such as their experience in handling valuables and substantial moving van support to transport all your belongings in one swift ride to your new home. 

Transition Your Utilities Beforehand

An excellent idea when moving into a new house is to transition all of your utilities beforehand. Although this may seem like something you can push off until the last second, you don’t exactly want to move into a house without heat or electricity in the winter. However, that doesn’t mean you have to start paying your new utility bills weeks in advance, just call the utility companies and let them know your move-in date, so that they can turn on the power to your place by the time you’re moved in. 

Moving into a new house during the winter season can be incredibly nerve-racking, but it certainly isn’t the hardest thing you’ll have to do. With some careful consideration and hiring a few reputable movers, you’ll be moved into a beautiful new home that you can show off to your friends and family this Christmas. So, what are you waiting for? Give Eden’s Moving Services a call today at  (877) 887-8248 to get a free estimate and book early for your move this winter!

How to Avoid Stress During Your Holiday Move


November 28, 2018

Moving during the holidays can be incredibly stressful. From needing to hire local movers in Denver during the busiest time of the year to get your family ready for the holiday season, there’s bound to be a lot on your mind during this move. However, even though moving during the holidays can put a lot on your mind, here are a few ways you can take the stress off this year. 

Keep Yourself Well Organized

To keep yourself less stressed this holiday season, you should do your best to keep yourself as organized as possible. You can do this by preparing a moving list or transferring all your utilities a few weeks before your move. Especially if you’re not a very organized person, now is the time to change. By being more organized for your move, you can feel less stressed over whether or not you have everything packed in moving boxes, have a finalized lease, etc. 

Hire Professional Movers

Although you can move belongings on your own, especially if you don’t own a lot of stuff, it’s always a load off your shoulders to hire moving companies in Denver. Not only will they have a large truck to transport all of your valuables safely, but they will also have the workforce to ensure your furniture makes it to your new house all in one piece. This will take some work off your plate and give you more time to focus on more important tasks for your big moving day. Just make sure you compare quotes from plenty of local moving companies in your area to get the best rate possible. Although a moving company is a well-worth expense, you don't want to empty your entire bank account for a professional moving service; you still need funds for other costs that go into moving. 

Get a Good Night’s Sleep Before Moving Day

With so much to do for your moving day, it’s easy to forget how important sleep is. A great way to lower your stress levels while moving this holiday season is to ensure you get a good night’s sleep before moving day. Unfortunately, not being well-rested can lead to panic attacks and migraines, which is the last thing you will want to deal with on this eventful time in your life. So get mentally and physically prepared for moving into your new home by catching up on sleep before your big day.  If you're having a hard time falling asleep, due to the stress, consider booking an appointment with your doctor to prescribe you medication to help you fall asleep a little quicker. 

Although moving into a new home during the holiday season can be super stressful, there are a few tips you can keep in mind to stay sane. Hopefully, the suggestions above are helpful enough for your big move and lower your stress levels during the holiday season. Now, it's time you get started moving into your new home, give Eden’s Moving Services a call at (877) 887-8248 for the most affordable quotes in Denver.

6 Tools Your Denver Movers Want You to Have on Hand During a Move


November 21, 2018

When you’re moving, it’s tempting to pack up all of your belongings and let your moving company take care of moving them to your new home. While this is fine for the majority of your items, some things need to be left out and brought to your new home in the trunk of your car. Believe it or not, your tools are some of the most important things to keep handy during a move, but you don’t have to bring the entire toolbox. Here are a few of the most useful items to set aside and keep handy during the packing and moving process.

Scissors

Last-minute labels and tape strips are much easier to use when you have a pair of scissors on hand to cut them down to size. You don’t need heavy-duty blades, either. Your standard household or craft scissors will do the trick. 

Hammers

One of the easiest ways to make a new house feel like home is to hang your artwork. Doing this while hunting for a hammer hiding somewhere in one of the boxes your moving company unloaded can only drag out the process. Pull the hammer out and set it aside. This way, you’ll know where it is the minute you need it. 

Screwdriver

Loose screws have a way of popping up when you’re moving furniture around the house. Leaving them loose while you pack up puts your furniture at risk for damage both on the truck and at your new home. Leave your screwdriver out and take care of loose screws as soon as you find them. This may seem like work, but you’ll thank yourself for it once you reach your new house. 

Leather Gloves

If you do much work outside or with rough materials, you know that leather gloves can mean the difference between getting cuts and leaving your hands undamaged. When you’re moving, your leather gloves can help make lifting heavy loads easier while also keeping the back of your hands from getting scraped against the wall or doorframe. Pull your gloves out of the toolbox and tuck them in your back pocket while moving boxes around. 

Allen Wrench

If you’ve ever put furniture together, you know just how important an Allen wrench can be. When moving, you’ll have to disassemble and reassemble multiple pieces of furniture and keeping that Allen wrench out and close at hand can make it that much easier to get settled into your new space.  

Reusable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do when working on your house or moving out of it. Instead of using disposable water bottles that you have to find a way to toss away in the chaos of the move, keep your reusable water bottle on hand. You can refill it as needed throughout the day.

Planning an upcoming move is stressful no matter how prepared you feel, but you don’t have to handle the packing and unpacking on your own. Contact us today for a free no-obligation moving estimate.

Denver Movers Share Tips for Moving with Pets During the Winter


November 14, 2018

Moving in winter can be tough. There’s ice on the roads, inclement weather to worry about, and cold temperatures to insulate against. However, when you move with pets, making sure they stay safe and comfortable throughout the process can be even more difficult. Though your Colorado moving company will do their best to make sure their activities don’t impact your animals negatively, there are still some things you can do to keep your pet happy and safe during a winter-time move. Here are a few tips to make it as simple as possible.

Give Them a Warm and Cozy Shelter

During periods of stress, pets do best when they have a place to retreat to. This can be a bed in the corner of the room, a dark corner of the closet, or a favorite patch of carpet next to the fireplace. Wherever your pet likes to curl up and spend their time when everyone else is busy running around is the best place to set up a temporary retreat. Make the space comfortable and accessible to them when you’re packing up. Make sure to include their favorite toys so they have something constructive to do with their time. When animals get stressed and don’t have an outlet, they often become destructive.

Keep Them Away from the Action

During the summer, your pets are best left outside with water and shade. However, during the winter, the cold temperatures can make it hard to leave your furry family members in the yard. Instead, find a place indoors to keep them away from the dollies, heavy boxes, and moving team. The laundry room after the machines have been removed or a bathroom where the movers won’t need to go are wonderful options. Your pets will be out of the way and out of the weather so you can focus on the move rather than worrying about their safety and wellbeing. 

Consider a Boarding Facility

Moving can take a toll on your pet’s emotional state and stress level. Rather than leaving them to face the stress head-on, consider separating them from the situation entirely. Board them for a few days at the vet’s office or a designated boarding facility. There, they’ll receive plenty of care, attention, and playtime without having to watch the house get packed up around them. This can make the move go more quickly and helps reduce the amount of stress you feel during the move. Instead of splitting your attention between the movers and your pets, you’ll be able to focus on directing the crew, finding the perfect place for your furniture, and get the basics set up before bringing your furry best friend home. 

We know that moving with pets can be a challenge, but as long as you’re prepared, handling a winter-time move with your furry family members doesn’t have to be stressful. If you’re planning on moving this winter, contact Eden’s Moving & Storage to schedule an estimate today. Our experienced and insured movers will take care of your belongings and we’ll do our best to make sure the move is as simple and fast as possible.
