If you’re planning a move in the near future, chances are you’re also planning to downsize, even if you don’t know it yet. Most people, when it comes time to start packing for a move, realize that they have a lot more stuff than they thought they did. In addition to this, they realize they have a lot of stuff they don’t use, need, or want anymore.
Minimalism: you’ve probably heard the term being used a lot these days, but do you really know what it means, and could you ever do it?
There are a variety of reasons why more and more people are moving towards a minimalistic lifestyle. It can have to do with sustainability and environmentalism, budgets and housing prices, eschewing materialism, or even just a want to have (a lot) less clutter. Whatever the reason, minimalism is a popular choice for many.
Everyone has trouble adjusting after a move to a new city. Even adults can have difficulty feeling like they’re a true part of their new community or workplace. For children, fitting in at school can be a difficult task even when it’s the same school they have attended their whole lives, never mind a brand new school.
Not every move is 100% happy. Whether it’s due to leaving behind friends/family, having a quit a beloved job, or leaving a house full of memories, most moves have some element of sadness attached to them. Even for adults, these aspects of moving to a new city are often scary and stressful. For children, the process can be even more taxing.
Moving is stressful, that's why most people choose to hire a professional moving company to do it for them. If you want to make your moving day even easier for everyone involved (of course you do), you'll want to allow your movers to do their best work. To do that, you have to understand what they need or want from you. We've compiled a list of things moving companies wish all of their clients would understand below:
When you’re faced with having to move without much notice, the first thing you might think is “how will I find a reliable moving company?” You need to find a company that can fit your move into their schedule on short notice, yet you may be (understandably) weary of a company that isn’t booked up.
We get it; sometimes you need to move in a hurry. Whether it’s for a sudden job change, a family emergency, the sale of a home that happened faster than you expected, or something else, you don’t always have months to plan your move.
At Two Small Men with Big Hearts we believe that one of the most important things for a business to do is give back to the communities in which we operate. We’re dedicated to not only giving our moving customers the best possible moving service, but also to contributing positively to the cities and towns they, and we, live and work in.
Moving Long Distance is different from moving within the same city in a lot of ways. Not only does the actual process take a lot longer, but it requires a lot more planning, organization, and communication. That’s why your best option when choosing a moving company for your long distance move is one that has the experience and expertise to complete your move safely and efficiently.
At Two Small Men, we’ve completed a lot of long distance moves over our more than 30 years in the business. One thing we often notice about our long distance moving clients is their apprehension or uncertainty about a new city. Most people are, understandably, at least a little bit scared to move to a brand new city far away from the things and the people they’re used to.
