How to Handle Short-Term Moves With Help From a Moving Company

Not all moves are long-distance or permanent. In fact, many people end up moving for a short period of time. Often, this is the result of selling a home faster than expected or being offered a temporary position with a company away from your hometown. No matter what the reason is, short-term moves are just as complicated as permanent relocations. Here are a few simple tips from your trusted Denver movers to help make handling that short-term relocation a breeze.

Decide What to Do With Your Belongings

When you’re moving for a few months at a time, it’s important to have a plan in place for your belongings. Larger items like furniture will likely need to be sold or kept in storage, while smaller items like books, personal effects, and clothing will need to go with you. If you’re planning on keeping your existing home and are only relocating for a month or two, consider leaving the furniture where it is. However, if you’re moving out of your home, let a professional mover pack and prepare your belongings for a storage unit.

Many companies even offer their own storage solutions to keep your items safe in between properties. This way, you’ll avoid having to sign a long-term storage unit contract and will have peace of mind knowing that your items are safe and packed securely until you’re ready to have them delivered to your new house. This will make moving to your final home much simpler and keeps your belongings safe while they’re in storage.

Hire The Same Moving Team for Both Moves

Moving between moves can be stressful, especially when you think about working with different moving companies to coordinate the delivery of your items. While it is possible to handle the move on your own, it’s best to hire the same moving company to transport your belongings to the temporary home or storage unit and the final property. This allows you to keep the same point of contact with a staff you already trust. After all, if they moved your belongings safely the first time, you can count on them to do the same quality job when you’re ready to move to your new home.

Consider Your Expenses

Short-term rentals can get expensive, especially if you’re relocating to a city. However, with short-term relocation, it’s important to stay focused on the broader picture. Consider how much you’ll need to pay for a storage facility, any closing costs on your new home, upcoming repair costs, and the total price of the move when establishing a budget. This way, you’ll be prepared for your entire short-term living situation without worrying about overdrawing your budget because you overlooked a few key expenses.

Short-term moves are often necessary, but they don’t have to be stressful. Let the team at Eden’s Moving Services help streamline the moving and storage of your belongings both to your temporary home and your permanent house. Our friendly staff will keep your belongings safe until you’re ready to take delivery so that you can look forward to your upcoming move. Contact us today for a free estimate.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
