Make Your Interstate Move Simple with These Tips

Short-distance moves may seem incredibly simple. After all, you’re just moving a few miles down the road, so the process of getting everything you own to your new home will be far easier, right? Though short-distance moves are easier in some ways, they still present challenges that your local Denver movers want to help eliminate. Here are a few tips to make sure your short-distance move goes as smoothly as possible.

Double-Check Measurements

When you’re moving down the road, you’ll be able to start moving small items over on your own before the movers pick up your heavy furniture and boxes. This is the perfect time to plan your layout, double-check measurements for furniture placement and artwork, and figure out how to best settle into your new space. When you know where you want your furniture placed, you’ll be able to direct the moving team better, sparing you the backache of having to move furniture on your own once the truck leaves.

Move Things in the Right Order

When moving items on your own, you’ll want to start by moving things you won’t need immediately. Items like out-of-season clothes, small holiday decorations, and extra bedding can easily be transferred to your new home. No matter what you decide to pack up first, make sure you won’t need the items until you’re all moved in at your new place. The last thing you want is to search for an item right before you head to work, only to discover that it has already made a move. While you’ll be able to grab the item later in the day, it’s still an inconvenience.

Start Downsizing

Getting rid of junk and clutter is just as important for a short movie as a long-distance move. As you pack, identify items that you haven’t used in a long time or no longer wish to keep and separate them from the rest of your belongings. Then pack up these items and donate them to a local charity. If you get a head start on downsizing, you may even be able to use smartphone apps to sell your stuff.

Contact a Moving Company Early

Just because you’re moving to town doesn’t mean you should wait to contact a moving company. In fact, you’ll want to start looking for movers as soon as you have a new place lined up. Some seasons are busier than others, and finding a team of movers in Denver that have the availability to move your stuff can be difficult. The sooner you make the reservation, the better.

Show Care to Fragile Items

Though you may think that your fragile items will be safe in a box on a short-distance move, they’re at just as high a risk of breaking. If your movers offer a packing service, you may want to let the pros pack your breakable items. However, if you’re handling your own packing, take care of the pad, wrap, and protect your breakable items properly.

At Eden’s Moving, we believe that moving should be as simple as possible. Our experienced team can handle everything from packing up your old house to unloading the moving truck at your new home. Spare yourself the struggle of moving on your own, and contact us today for your free no-obligation moving 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.
