How to Make Your Commercial Moving Job a Breeze

A commercial moving job is a huge undertaking that needs months and sometimes years of preparation to execute. The more organized and prepared you are for the move, the easier the transition will be and the fewer working and operating hours will be lost to the move. At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we want your business operations to have as few interruptions as possible. We understand that time equals money in the business world. So here are a few of our tips to help prepare your company for the big move and get your business operations back to full capacity as quickly as possible.

  • Know What You’re Up Against– Get in touch with the building manager for both the building you are moving out of and the building you are moving into. Many office buildings have rules about how long a moving truck can be in the parking lot and reserving elevators. Some don’t allow moves during business hours, so you would need to coordinate your move on the weekend. If you move on the weekend, it’s likely that the A/C would be turned off for the building and you may want to request to have it kept on. When you know all the specifics of your office building requirements, you can better plan for the logistics of your move.
  • Get Electronics Up & Running First– Have IT equipment packed last and unloaded at the new location first. The IT team can then get to work on getting your network up and running as quickly as possible, so your business can continue operations quickly.
  • Plan the Layout– Come up with a sketch of the layout you want at your new office. Our movers will be able to place furniture quickly and efficiently. To coordinate the move, it will help to have an office manager at your old and new location to answer questions and oversee operations.

At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we are an efficient and professional commercial moving company. We can get your business packed and moved quickly, so you can be up and operating again in no time. When you’re looking for a commercial moving company, be sure to call us for a quote!

3 Tips for a Smooth Residential Moving Experience

Moving is hard work, no matter how organized you are, but preparation and organization will make your move a whole lot easier if you start early and approach your move with a plan. Our team at Glaser & Sons Mooving can help with your residential moving experience and help you get from point A to point B with the least disruption possible. Here are a few of our tips to help your residential moving experience go more smoothly.

  1. Get Organized. Weeks before you move, it’s helpful to sort through your possessions and see if there is anything you would like to sell or donate before you move. Often people have things in storage boxes that they haven’t seen for years, and when they pull them out to move, they realize they don’t want to take them to their new place. If you do this before you start packing up to move, you won’t have to make the decision while you’re busy packing. Once you’ve sorted your belongings, you’ll know that everything still in your home must be packed, and you won’t have to make tough decisions in the midst of crazy moving day. If you have any furniture you’d like to donate, we are happy to transport the furniture to Goodwill for you or donate it to a family in need.
  1. Pack Non-Essentials First. You can get a big jump on your packing by boxing up items that you don’t use as frequently, such as camping gear, sports equipment, Christmas decorations, etc. Anything you don’t use on a daily or weekly basis can be packed weeks in advance to make your moving day go faster. If you prefer to not do any of your packing, that’s okay too. At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we can handle your entire move from start to finish.
  1. Keep a Box or Suitcase of Your Essentials. There’s nothing more frustrating than sorting through hundreds of boxes looking for soap and a toothbrush so you can take a shower on your first day in your new home. Pack a suitcase for everything you will need for a few days while everything is still packed. That way, you’ll have all of your necessities within reach.

At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we are experts in residential moving. We look forward to helping you with your upcoming move!

Relocation with Pets: What You Need to Know

RelocationRelocation, while it can be exciting, can be hard on your pets. If you’re getting ready to move in the next few weeks, make things easier on your pets during the relocation process by:

  • Keeping them in a quiet area—When our movers at Glaser & Sons Mooving are going in and out of your house with furniture and boxes, your pet may start to feel a little bit overwhelmed. During the actual move, consider keeping your pet in a safe and quiet place and checking on them regularly. Or, you may want to take them over to a friend’s house for the day.
  • Introducing them to your new place—Once you move into your new place, set up an area with your pet’s food, water, toys, and bedding as soon as possible. This will help them feel more at home and also provide them with a sense of familiarity.
  • Making sure you have enough food and toys—During the relocation process, it’s easy to forget to do certain things. However, make sure you set aside some of your pet’s food before the day of the move and some of their favorite toys to keep them entertained.

Remember, after you move into your new house, your pet may feel a little bit disoriented and may require a little bit more attention than normal right at first. However, once you get back into your routine, chances are that your pet will start to feel right at home.

Advice from Your Movers: How to Clean Out Your Closet Before Moving

MoversAs movers, we realize that moving usually isn’t very much fun. However, with a little preparation, you can make a smooth transition to your next home. If you’ve been getting ready to move, but still need to clean out your closet, here are a few things we recommend doing:

  • Take everything out—Although this may seem counterproductive, taking everything out of your closet and laying out in your bedroom will make things much easier. After you have everything out of your closet, you’ll be able to get a better feel for what’s in your closet and what you should pack.
  • Make a donation pile—As movers, we recognize that moving is a great time to clear out your things and make donations. As you sort through what’s in your closet, decide what you want to donate and what you want to take with you to your new home.
  • Use the one-year rule—While you go through your clothes, it can be hard to get rid of old pieces because you never know when you might need them again. However, if you haven’t worn something in over a year, chances are you won’t ever wear it again.

How to Make the Residential Moving Process Less Stressful

Residential MovingIt’s no secret that residential moving is a pain, regardless of whether you’re simply moving up the street or to a different state. At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we want your upcoming move to be as stress-free as possible, so we have a few tips to offer that might help.

  • Plan in Advance- When it comes to residential moving, having a plan of attack is key. A few weeks before your move, decide what day you will actually complete the move, when you need to start packing, and everything that needs to go into the moving process. Then, stick with this plan until you’re in your new place!
  • Sell or Donate Unused Items- Moving is a great time to decide what you really use and don’t use. Use your move as an opportunity to go through your belongings and determine which ones you can either sell or donate to those in need.
  • Pack an Overnight Bag- When you’re in the middle of moving, it’s easy to forget where you put your toothbrush or wonder if you have enough clean clothes for the next day. Make things easier on yourself by packing an overnight bag for the day of your move that has all of your basic toiletries, as well as a change of clothes.
  • Let Us Help- If you really want to make the residential moving process a breeze, let our professional, friendly team help. We can pack up your belongings, carefully load them into one of our trucks, and get them to your new home safe and sound.

Keep Your Operations Flowing Smoothly with These Commercial Moving Tips

Commercial MovingWhen your business moves from one location to another, you probably worry about how your operations will be interrupted during the process. To make sure your business keeps on going, despite the moving process, here are some commercial moving tips you might want to try.

  • Keep Your Employees Updated- It’s never a good idea to spring a move on your employees the day, or even the week, before it happens. To make the commercial moving process easier, give your employees at least a couple of weeks to prepare for the move, and let them know what your expectations will be when the actual move arrives.
  • Update All of Your Documents- To keep your business going, it’s critical that you update your new address on everything. This means that around the same time of your move, your business cards, website, stationery, and anything else with your address on it should reflect the new and correct information.
  • Stay Organized- During the commercial moving process, it’s tempting just to dump all your documents in a box and hope they all get to your new office. Although this may work to some extent, it’s a recipe for disaster. Stay organized during your move by labelling everything, sticking to your moving checklist, and communicating with anyone involved in the move.
  • Work with the Right Movers- The most important commercial moving tip out there is to work with the right team of movers. If you’re planning to relocate your business, make sure you let our professional, friendly team at Glaser & Sons Mooving help.
