Movers Share Important Things to Keep in Mind When Moving

For many people in the greater Denver area, leases follow the academic year and that means many people will be moving out of their apartments and into new units. However, if you’re still living in your first home away from your childhood house, you may not know what to expect during the move-out process. Though an experienced Colorado moving company will help you relocate quickly and easily, there are still a few things you need to do to prepare for the move. Here’s what you need to know about moving out of your first home.

Cleaning Is Your Responsibility

When you move out, you’re required to clean out your apartment for the landlord. In most situations, this includes wiping down all surfaces, vacuuming, fixing minor damage like holes or scratches in the paint, and washing the windows. However, it’s important that you read and understand the move-out terms of your lease agreement before turning in the keys. You may be expected to have the carpets professionally cleaned or the floors refinished in order to get your security deposit back. Failure to adhere to the exact terms of the lease agreement may result in the security deposit being withheld. Keep in mind, you can always hire a professional cleaning company to get rid of the gunk.

Go Through Belongings Before You Pack

Even if you’ve only lived in an apartment for a year, you’ll still have a lot of excess stuff that you don’t need to move with you. Take the time to go through your belongings before packing them up and donate what you don’t want to keep. The fewer items you need to move to your new place, the more affordable your move will be. If you have items that are still in great condition, consider hosting a garage or yard sale and make a bit of money back on your belongings. It might not be much, but every cent helps when you’re planning a move.

Hiring Pros Saves You Time

When you’re moving from your first apartment, pinching pennies is still incredibly important. However, contrary to popular belief, hiring professional movers often saves you money compared to handling the transition yourself. When you rent a truck, you have to pay additional insurance costs, cover the cost of fuel and mileage, find friends willing to help you load the heavy stuff, and pay the rental fee itself. On top of all that, you’re responsible for driving that large truck on high-traffic roads. Instead, save yourself the trouble and contact a professional moving company to handle the packing and driving for you.

Moving out of your first apartment can be an emotional and stressful time. Spare yourself the hassle of moving out on your own and let the professional movers at Eden’s Moving and Services help you move your belongings to your new home quickly and painlessly. Our dedicated staff will take care of your belongings the entire way, whether you’re moving across town or across the country.

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!

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.
