Neighbors and socializing tips

When you first hire your Colorado moving team, you’re focused on getting your old home packed up and ready to go. This is normal—it’s the most stressful part of any move. But what happens once the movers drop off your stuff at the new house? It would help if you started getting familiar with the neighborhood and the people you live next to. If you’re like most people, introducing yourself to the neighbors can be a bit daunting. But it doesn’t have to be. Use these simple tips to make getting to know your new neighbors as easy as possible.

When In Doubt, Knock

Your neighbors won’t always welcome you with fresh-baked cookies. Sometimes, you’ll have to go to them. Take the lead and introduce yourself. If you’re comfortable with it, knock on their door and make the introductions that way. But if you’re a bit on the shy side, wait until you’re both at the mailbox or doing lawn chores.

Participate

A lot of neighborhoods host events, potlucks, and gatherings. The best way to meet your neighbors is to get involved and participate in these events. Ask your homeowners association if there are any upcoming gatherings. Look around the neighborhood for advertisements and fliers. If you don’t see any, you could always consider hosting an event. Backyard barbeques are a great way to meet others on your block.

Hang Out Outside

If you have relatively shy neighbors, they might not be comfortable going up and knocking on your door. But if you’re outside, they’ll usually stop by and say high. Make a point to spend some time outdoors. Get your hands dirty with a gardening project, play with the dog, or enjoy the weather and the view from your front porch. If you’re outside, neighbors will likely make an effort to say hello and introduce themselves.

Offer to Help

Nothing makes a great impression, like being willing to help out. If you see one of your neighbors struggling with something, offer to lend a helping hand if you can. This gives you a chance to introduce yourself and shows others just how nice and friendly you are.

In Washington State, you can visit places like Olympic National Park or Seattle Center or the San Juan Islands or all of the above and a lot more. Ready to move?

Get Advice

If you strike up a conversation with your neighbors and aren’t sure what to say, ask for their recommendations on things to do in the area. People love sharing their favorite restaurants, bars, museums, movie theaters, and other recommendations. Once they do, you’ll have something in common to discuss in the future and may even discover a few shared passions and hobbies in the process.

At Eden’s Moving and Storage, we can’t help you introduce yourself to your neighbors. But we can take the stress out of your upcoming move. Our fully licensed and insured team will take care of the heavy lifting so you can focus on getting to know your new neighborhood. We’re here to help whether you’re moving across town or out of state. Contact us today to schedule a free estimate and see how a professional moving company can streamline your move.

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!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

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.
