How to Plan a Move When You Have Kids

When you have a family that includes a kid or two (or three… or four… or even more!), moving can become an even more complicated process than what it usually is. It is definitely in your best interest to hire a professional moving company for your St Paul move! We here at RJ Moving have a few suggestions on how to make moving day easier on your kids, on yourself and on your professional moving company!

First of all, getting the kids as involved in the moving process as much as possible is a great way to make sure they are excited about moving and not overly scared. Some fear is normal, but you want your kids to feel positive about the moving experience. So get their help de-cluttering your home before your professional moving company arrives. Kids can also help pack items that aren’t too fragile, like linens, clothing and books. Also, make sure they get a chance to see your new home if that’s possible. The more they know, the more prepared everyone will feel.

On the day the professional moving company arrives, make sure your kids have plenty to do so they don’t get in the way. For example, ask the kids to stay in a room that’s already been cleared out of everything except a table and some chairs. Set up a craft project or set out some coloring books so your kids stay occupied while your professional moving company is doing its work. Or keep a TV and DVD player set up and have a movie day. Keeping the kids occupied and distracted will make the day go a lot more smoothly for everyone involved.

How to Pack Fragile Items

When you hire a moving company in Plymouth, that’s one of the most important steps in any moving process. Another important step is making sure all of your fragile items are securely packed. RJ Moving, a trusted moving company, has a few tips on how to make sure all of your items get to your new house in one piece.

Fill any hollow items, like vases, with Styrofoam peanuts. Then roll it up in bubble wrap. Plates should be packed individually. Never stack plates on top of one another and then pack them! If you stack them, there is a chance that if one plate breaks, the others will too. Plates should also be packed vertically. Use small or medium boxes. That way, the boxes won’t be overly heavy and your moving company will have an easier time moving them from one location to another.

Glasses should also be individually wrapped. Wrap them in packing paper and crumble up some paper to stuff inside of them too. Make sure to layer paper in any empty spaces in the box too. This will also make things easier on your moving company.

Any pictures and frames you want to pack up should also be packed in small to medium boxes. Wrap each frame in packing paper, and stuff the boxes with extra paper as well. For larger pictures and frames, wrap a moving blanket around them and then wrap plastic wrap around the blanket. Be sure to let the moving company know what’s in there so they know to take extra special care of it.

For any items that are an unusual shape, wrap them in bubble wrap, then make sure to tape the loose ends of the bubble wrap. Then wrap it securely in some pliable cardboard. Again, tell your moving company what is in there and make sure they know to take extra care with that item.

Moving Day: The Aftermath

Lots of moving blogs focus on the days leading up to a move and then moving day itself. Today, RJ Moving, residential movers in Plymouth, want to give you a few tips on what to do after your residential movers leave and you are fully moved into your new home. As one of the best residential movers in the area, we feel like we’ve learned a thing or two and would love to share our knowledge with you!

One of the first things you should do is hang up some curtains. This applies especially in areas where privacy is a must, like in bedrooms and in bathrooms (if there are any windows in the bathrooms).

The next thing you should do is remember to feed yourself and your family! Even if you just order in some pizza after your residential movers leave, making sure everyone is well-fed and hydrated is a must.

Then, it’s time to unpack your bedding and your pajamas. It was probably a very busy moving day – from the moment your residential movers arrived until they departed, we’re pretty sure you and your family were going non-stop. Taking the time to make your bed and change into comfy clothes can help everyone relax and start to settle into your new home. If you have one, put up a shower curtain so everyone can take a bath. That definitely helps with relaxation!

Finally, if you’re feeling up to it, hook up your DVD player and watch a movie or two. This is another way to unwind, bond together as a family, and start getting used to your new home. Don’t worry about unpacking right away! That will happen eventually, as will cleaning. The main thing you should focus on after your residential movers leave is unpacking some basic stuff, ensuring your family’s privacy, making sure everyone had enough to eat and drink, and unwinding.

When you are ready to make a move in or around Plymouth and you need reliable residential movers, call RJ Moving at 612-384-2028 or Get A Free Quote.

Moving Day Will Be Hectic: Movers Are Here to Help

If you’re relocating a business with many employees, moving day can be hectic. There’s no doubt that when you have to organize and coordinate teams of people, things can go wrong. You can greatly reduce the stress of moving by hiring professional movers. Maple Grove business owners can be at ease on the day of the big move with a team of professionals on their side.

Keep Walkways Clear

It may seem logical to get boxes out of offices and into the hallway, to be accessed easier by the team of movers that have been hired. We advise you to instead keep walkways clear. We have a very particular way of systematically packing your possessions into our moving vehicles. Objects in hallways, entryways, stairwells and other walkways can hinder the packing process. Allow us to determine what order boxes are placed out to be picked up.

Take Care of Your Employees

You take care of your employees, we’ll take care of your belongings. All of them should have a directive to help the moving process go smoothly. If you have non-essential employees, it may be wise to give them the day off. Sometimes too many people can cause more confusion. Have a meeting with everyone before the moving date to coordinate efforts and make sure everyone knows what they’re supposed to be doing.

Label, Label, Label

Make sure everything is labeled. Every box, every set of keys, everything! You’ll thank yourself later if you are diligent with labeling. Everything will make its way to its proper place if it’s labeled correctly. It will make distributing items to their proper place, and to the proper people easier. We want things to be simple for you, even after we leave.

Spring into Action: Moving Tips

Why is spring one of the most popular times of year for moving and hiring professional movers? It’s pretty easy to see why! The first advantage is the milder weather. It’s perfect: not too hot (like in the summer) and not too cold (like in the winter). So how can you ensure that you and your professional movers have the easiest and most stress-free move possible? RJ Moving has a few suggestions for you.

Take the time to do some research on the best professional movers in your area. For example, RJ Moving is one of the best professional movers in the Maple Grove area. Then start thinking about packing your belongings. The best place to start is with your cold-weather items, like jackets, scarves, winter clothes, sleds, snow shovels, etc. Be sure to keep an eye on the weather for your moving day, and make sure to have any necessary supplies for your moving day. Professional movers like RJ Moving should have all of the equipment needed to make the move smooth and hassle-free. You can keep a cooler with drinks and snacks available for hungry workers. And be sure to leave out a few toys if you have small children. That way, they will stay entertained and out of the way of the busy professional movers.

And be sure you and your family are dressed appropriately for your moving day. Wear sunglasses if it’s going to be sunny and make sure you are dressed for the outdoor air temperatures. If you and your family are comfortable, it will make your moving day easier on you and even your professional movers! Tuck aside any necessities that you might need right after you’re moved into your new home – a change of clothes, pajamas, toiletries, toilet paper, etc.

Why Hiring a Minneapolis Professional Moving Company is to Your Advantage

Moving can be a long drawn-out process that strains both the body and the bank account. However, each of these ailments can be avoided when you hire a Minneapolis professional moving company. Rather than spending days, or perhaps weeks, locating and packing boxes, when you choose to hire a professional moving company you will be able to focus on your day to day responsibilities and leave the moving to the professionals.

Remember that statement, “Time is money”? When it comes to moving that statement can truly hit home. This is because getting boxes packed, labeled, loaded, relocated and then unloaded can take an exorbitant amount of time –especially if you are a novice mover! But more time is not the only advantage of hiring a professional Minneapolis moving company. Here are several other reasons people opt to let the professionals do the moving.

  • A professional moving company will maximize the amount of time you have to get moved. They will provide a schedule for arrival, the departure time and manage all the details involved for moving.
  • Should you find yourself in need of warehousing or carrier services for household items or even your vehicle, professional moving companies can typically meet this need for you.
  • A Minneapolis professional moving company has crews that know how to pack efficiently and effectively. They will ensure that your items are packed safely then placed in boxes that are labeled according to type of items or, in many cases, based on the room where they would belong.
  • The movers in Minneapolis are accustomed to the physical and mental stress of moving. Hiring professionals will prevent the headaches and backaches of moving.
  • Professional movers know how to move those awkward pieces of furniture without damaging the walls or the item.
  • Professional movers in Minneapolis come fully prepared for every element of moving. Rather than needing to use your towels and blankets as packing materials, the professional movers will provide packing peanuts (or a similar product), as well as the boxes, tape and equipment such as handcarts and ramps for loading the truck.
  • Professional moving companies will have insurance that covers any loss or damage to your belongings. This insurance is especially nice if you have expensive or large items to be moved.
  • In the majority of moves, one must take time off from work in order to get the household boxed up and moved. Hiring a professional moving company means less time away from work, thus saving your vacation days for something more pleasurable.

There are many other advantages to hiring a Minneapolis professional moving company. But perhaps the most important is the peace of mind in knowing that you don’t have to spend days packing, labeling and moving the boxes in your “spare” time. At RJ Moving company in Minneapolis, you can rest assured that we will take care of all your moving needs so you can focus on what matters most—you and yours!

 Moving on a Budget

Then take into consideration if you’re going to have a roommate or not. Does it make sense for you to rent an apartment in St Paul, or will you need more space? Do your research before you hire a professional moving company.

Don’t Forget the Small Stuff

A moving company can help you move what you have and what you buy. After you move you’ll need to submit a change of address form with the post office and update your voting information to your St Paul address. Some of these tasks can produce additional costs, so don’t forget to take them into consideration as well!

Planning for Your St Paul Commercial Movers

When it’s time for your St Paul commercial business to make a change and move locations, there is a lot to think about! It’s a stressful time, for sure. St Paul commercial movers, RJ Moving, know how it goes, and we are here to help alleviate some of that stress. We have some great tips on what to do in the weeks and months leading up to your move.

The first thing you want to do to prepare for your commercial movers is take a long look at your St Paul business’ files. Do you really need all of them? Be sure to make sure you’re following state regulations and IRS regulations in regards to file retention, but get rid of any that you don’t need. But don’t just throw them out! Make sure they are shredded or disposed of properly.

Also, make sure your employees are all on the same page and get plenty of notice that the office is moving and that the commercial movers are coming at a specific date and time. Make sure they know what is expected of them. Are they supposed to help the commercial movers? Should they stay home that day and consider it a bonus day off? Are they expected to work from home? Make your expectations clear so there is no confusion.

Space planning is also key. Check out your new St Paul office space as much as you can and make sure all of the furniture and supplies will fit. See where the phone lines are, electrical lines, Internet, etc. and plan around them. Make sure your commercial movers know where every item is supposed to go. Even if you draw up a floor plan, that’s a good way to figure out where everything will end up.

Also, send around a flier or some type of notification to your St Paul customers so they know when and where you’ve moved!

For all of your moving needs, you can trust RJ Moving. Give us a call today at (612) 384-2028 or contact us online for a free quote. We can answer any questions you have about our commercial movers and how they can help your St Paul business.

Minneapolis Commercial Movers – How to Make a Smooth Move

When you are moving your Minneapolis commercial business, we know there is a lot on your mind! Not only are you worried about the move itself, you’re also probably worried about how long your business will have to stay closed and how much money you might lose in lost revenue and income. Thankfully, RJ Moving, one of the best Minneapolis commercial movers, has a few suggestions to help your move go smoothly.

First of all, make sure you ask for help and delegate tasks to your employees. Consider appointing a “move team” and give each person on the team specific tasks or jobs to handle. For example, one person should be in charge of finding the best Minneapolis commercial movers. Another person should handle coordinating the boxes and other packing supplies. (If you hire RJ Moving, we can help make sure you and your team have plenty of moving materials!) Don’t try to take on all of the work by yourself!

Make sure you start early! As soon as you know you’re going to move, delegate your moving team, be sure you’ve got the best Minneapolis commercial movers you can find and start packing. Your employees should all chip in with getting everything packed and organized. Be sure to label every box so your commercial movers know where to put things when the time comes. Also, don’t forget about clearing out all the spaces in your business, like crawl spaces, basements, etc.

Budgeting is another good idea. Your Minneapolis commercial movers should know what services you want and you should know how much those services are going to cost. Minneapolis commercial movers should be willing to give you a written estimate, and they should not deviate from that estimate unless both parties are in agreement.

When you need trustworthy and responsible commercial movers in Minneapolis or the surrounding areas, call RJ Moving at (612) 384-2028 or contact us online for a free estimate.

St Paul Residential Movers – How to Make Your Move as Organized as Possible

When you’re moving your St Paul home or commercial business, it can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Thankfully, St Paul residential moversRJ Moving – has some tips on how to make your St Paul move more organized so you’re ready when your residential movers arrive.

One of the best things you can do to keep your St Paul move coordinated is to keep all of your important documents in a folder. That way, when your residential movers come to your St Paul home to start the moving process, if you need a document, you can easily find it without worrying that it’s been lost or accidentally thrown away.

Keep a running list of appointments, things you need to do and important phone numbers and other information. Again, this way you know where everything is and you don’t have to worry that anything has been misplaced, so there is no need to panic when your residential movers arrive.

About a month or two before you move, make sure your change-of-address notification has been done. This is a pretty easy process, and it’s important to get it situated before your residential movers begin the moving process. All you have to do is visit the United States Postal Service’s website and fill out a form online. Also, remember to update your address at your job and with your bank, credit card company, etc.

On the day your St Paul residential movers arrive, try to have child care arranged (if needed) and try to have someone to watch your pets too. If you can’t find someone to watch over your dog or cat, clean out a room so they have somewhere comfortable to stay. Attach a sign to the door asking people to keep it closed. And make sure your pets have plenty of water, food, some toys to distract them and a comfortable place to lie down. Be sure to check on them every once in awhile and take them for walks as needed. (For cats, make sure they have a clean litter box in there!)

We hope these tips help ease some of the stress of moving. And when you need St Paul residential movers, don’t hesitate to call RJ Moving at (612) 384-2028 or contact us online for a free quote!
