5-Reasons-To-Relocate-Now-1200x750.jpg

Are you currently at a point in your life when you don’t actually know if you should do something? Moving is commonly such a concern for people, who think that moving may be advantageous, but are not actually confident about it. So they are not doing a thing about it.

In this article we will offer you our top 5 arguments for why moving to a new place is fantastic for you! Do not forget that if you would like to move, professional Chicago movers are prepared to help you with it!

  1. You Don’t Live Close To Your Workplace Anymore

One of the top causes people relocate to a new place is due to the fact it is closer to their workplace. Minimizing transportation costs pays off over time.

So you are going to be significantly better if you find a place closer to your job. Nonetheless, if you have a family, this can be a problem. That’s because choosing an apartment for your family is more complicated. But if that is not your case – do it!

  1. It Will Not Suit Your Family Any Further

As we hinted, having a family calls for you to take more things into consideration when trying to find a new place. But if your current one is on the small side, while there is a baby along the way or kids who would like their own rooms… Things can get challenging. So this is yet again an excellent reason to look for a new place.

  1. The Elephant In The Room

One of the more widespread reasons people choose to relocate is because their living space is insufficient. It relates to some extent to having a bigger family, but it doesn’t need to.

Lots of people transition to working from home, and soon realize that they don’t have a spacious enough home office for their business interests. The alternative? Another place.

  1. It Really Seems Reasonable

Do you feel your current home to be a little too restrictive? Like, you do not have anywhere to put that cabinet you have been eyeing for the past number of months? Perhaps you just want a more open living room, where you can invite your buddies and have a great evening? And along with everything, you know you can easily afford it!

What typically happens is that folks know they need to move, but they are somewhat anxious about the process. They sense that it’s an excessive amount of work and they basically don’t take that step. But while that’s possible, it does not need to be. You can try to find a moving company that will suit your needs and do everything for you. They can even organize everything for you, if that’s what you want!

  1. You!

The fifth reason is about you! You’ve changed, you’ve grown, you have definitely gone through things. Perhaps it is the moment for a change of place and another adventure. A change of your surroundings, possibly even a different kind of apartment. Occasionally we just need new experiences to be able to feel full of life. Actually, scratch that! We constantly need these things! And what better than a new house?

Conclusion

What do you believe will work for you? Do you see some benefit in a move? If you can see a small one, put it to paper. Then an additional one. Because a bunch of minor reasons equal a great one.

Basic Moving Tips

If you are about to move and it is your first time doing it on your own, you may feel overwhelmed. Even if you have some moving experience, that doesn’t mean that you know all the basics either. So in this article, we from Vosco Moving are going to tell you a bit about the entire thing and how you can make your move much easier and less stressful.

Remember that it all starts with research. There is no way to become better if you don’t spend some time looking at the best practices. What we will give you in this article is by no means comprehensive, but it is a good foundation, from which to start. So let’s go!

Basic Tip #1: Don’t Wait Around

Many people think that you don’t need to schedule your move super strictly. They wait until the last week or so and then start calling movers. This is irresponsible and will only get you into trouble. There are not many reputable movers that will be able to book you in just on a week’s notice. Their weekends will likely be filled and then you will have to resort to moving companies that charge more or don’t provide nearly as good of a service. So schedule your move in advance and stick to your plan!

Basic Tip #2: Your Movers Can Pack…

If you don’t know much about packing, you can leave your movers to do it for you. It doesn’t cost all that much, considering the amount of time that this is going to save you. Plus, your items will be packed safely, efficiently and will take up less space in the truck. Which is great, since less boxes full of things also means you will pay less in the end.

But note that you don’t necessarily have to approach your movers for that job, because…

Basic Tip #3: …or You Can Do It

Learning how to pack your items is one of the best ways to save money on your move. Plus the skill comes in handy throughout your life. You will become more organized and you won’t have to depend on others to handle tidying for you. And who doesn’t want a tidy place, right?

While this is easily said, it is not so easily done. The thing is that packing is not a simple job. It is good to do your research beforehand and learn more about what the best packing practices are. For example, you have to know why there are different size of boxes and which is suitable for what kind of things. Or the fact that some things must never be packed for one reason or another.

Conclusion

Moving does not need to be hard, but it can be challenging for sure. Don’t let it that discourage you though. You can do it, just take some time to learn more about the whole thing!

How To Become Good At Packing

If you ask people which thing about moving they dislike the most, the majority would say “packing”. This is not without reason. The truth is that packing seems simple only when you have not tried it. When you actually get to doing it, you see how frustrating it can be. Plus, it just soaks up your time, especially when you don’t have a packing plan.

The thing is that you can call your favorite Sacramento movers and they can do the packing for you. But then your move will cost a little bit more, which is not that big of a deal, considering how much time you end up saving. However, we know that some of you cannot give up on a challenge and want to show to everyone that packing is not going to get the best of them. So in this article we will tell you more about it, and namely – some important things, to which to pay attention.

Tip #1: Not All Boxes Are Created Equal

You may think that packing is as easy as sticking things into boxes, but it’s more than that. However, we will first take a look at the second part of that statement. Boxes. Yes, they are these big (or small) square-looking things, in which you put your stuff. But that’s not all.

In fact, boxes are different altogether. Just because you can go to your local liquor store and ask for their spare cardboard boxes, doesn’t mean that you should use them. Because they are likely not as sturdy and are probably beaten up a bit as well.

If you want your items to be safe, it is best to find yourself some plastic packing boxes. You can rent these through various services, so you don’t have them lying around when you don’t need them.

Tip #2: Packing Supplies Matter

“You get what you pay for” applies with full force here as well. If you cheap out on the packing supplies you may end up covered in stretch wrap that doesn’t even work. And it doesn’t protect anything. Oh, and a bubble wrap that is as good as nothing. That’s the thing – really cheap packing supplies won’t last through the move. So spend a little more and get much more in quality.

Tip #3: Weight Hierarchy

There is a simple principle – heavy items go in small boxes, light items in big boxes. And there is another one, which complements it as well – heavy goes to the bottom, light goes to the top. This applies to stacking the boxes, but also – if you have to mix items together, you always put the light on top. Otherwise, you risk the heavy thing damaging the lighter one.

Conclusion

With these simple packing tips you are on your way to become much more proficient in moving. Not that you will be a true professional, but you’ll be much better than most people. So go there and do your best!

How To Spot A Reputable Moving Company?

If you are on the hunt to find yourself some reputable Sacramento movers, then you must know what you should be looking for. Luckily, good moving companies aren’t mythical creatures. They exist and in fact, they are not that hard to find. You just need to know some dead giveaways that should make it clear when a moving company is good.

Keep in mind that we from Vosco Moving pride ourselves to be among the best Sacramento moving companies. But it is only natural that we are going to say that. However, with more than 10 years of experience in the moving niche, we have proven to be reliable, trustworthy and professional. So let’s look at what are the factors that make moving companies worth it.

Sign #1: Packing & Unpacking

If a moving company offers you packing and unpacking services, that means they are at least a little bit ahead of the curve. Companies without much experience may also offer packing, but this is where you should ask about whether their movers are trained in efficient packing. If they give you a clear answer without sounding surprised by the question, it is more likely for the company to actually have packing training setup for their new movers.

Sign #2: Furniture Disassembling & Assembling

While even inexperienced movers may offer you packing and unpacking, there are few such companies that will present you with furniture disassembling services, if they are not confident in their skills. That is because furniture disassembling and assembling requires a particular set of skills, so you can’t just “wing it”. There is no such thing as “bad disassembling”. If it’s bad, it’s broken, and that will be on the company.

Sing #3: Personal Packing Supplies

Professional Sacramento moving companies should have access to high grade packing supplies. They get them at preferential prices and don’t charge for them when they use them to pack your things. If they offer these, it means they are somewhat established in the niche and work directly with companies that provide them with such materials. So it is a much safer bet to go with such a moving company.

However, it is possible for the company to bring their own packing supplies, which are still low quality. If you want to be completely sure that you are not being ripped off, you may ask their employees more about these things. Pick up the phone, give them a call and ask more about the move. If they can guide you through it and explain everything, then the company cares about its clients enough to train their customer care staff. That is usually a good sign.

Conclusion

Reading online reviews only goes so far in helping you with judging if a company is right for you or not. But with our three signs it is going to be much easier for you to make that decision.
