Preparing For A Temporary Move With the Help of A Moving Company

Many people have to move temporarily, whether for a short-term job assignment or a semester at college. Moving temporarily is much different than leaving your current home behind to move into a new house permanently. To ensure it goes as smoothly as possible follows these tips provided by Eden’s Moving Company:

Find out what’s provided.

You will need to determine what will be provided to you in your temporary home. For example, most colleges provide students with a bed frame, mattress, and desk. College dorms may also have common areas with small kitchen appliances, such as blenders, toasters, and microwaves. If you don’t know what’s already in your temporary home, you may end up bringing items that you don’t necessarily need. This should be the first thing you do to start making a list of items that you need that are not provided.

Look at the forecast.

If you’re moving to a different state, don’t forget to look at the forecast to determine what the weather will be like when you’re there. Most weather forecasts will only tell you what the weather will be for the next 10-15 days. However, you can use Google to look at historical data that shows you the average temperature by month. Find this information to know what type of clothing you should pack and what you should leave behind. If you’re temporarily moving from Colorado to Florida, for example, it’s safe to say that you can leave most of your winter clothes behind.

Bring the bare necessities.

As you begin to pack, keep in mind that this is only a temporary move. You may be tempted to bring all of your belongings to make you feel more at home, but the more you bring now, the more you will have to pack up when it’s time to move back home. Make it easier on yourself by only bringing the items you will definitely need while away from home. Not only will this make it easier to pack and unpack, but it also means you can rent a smaller moving truck, which will be less expensive than a larger one.

Rent a storage unit.

Will you be keeping your home in Denver while you temporarily move to another location? If not, then you will need to find a place to keep all of your belongings that you’re not bringing with you. It’s best to work with a moving company that offers storage services so they can transport your stuff to a facility at the same time they’re moving the rest of your items to your new, temporary home. Follow these 8 tips for using rental storage units.

Now that you know how to prepare for your temporary move, it’s time to get in touch with the professionals. Contact Eden’s Moving Company to discuss local and long-distance moving services with our team of professionals. Call us today to learn more about our services and request a quote.

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.
