When is the Best Time to Move in Seattle

When is the Best Time to Move?
There is a lot to think about when moving, and at Seattle Select we understand this. That’s why we like to provide you with consistent moving tips to help make your next move your best move. It’s funny…but sometimes the simple tips are the tips that make all the difference! Some as simple as moving at the proper time can make your move a easy move vs. a frustrating move.

Here are some Tips to consider in regards to timing on your next move:

What Time of the Year is It –
Even the time of year plays big part in the quality of your move. Take winter for example in Seattle, rain… rain… rain. And as we all know how much it rains in Seattle, we also know what a drag it can be sitting out in the rain while moving. Not to mention the potential damage that can occur to your things while they are getting hit by rain. This is why it may be better for you to consider a move during summer or late spring when possible.

What Time of the Month is It –
Believe it or not this can be a huge factor in moving. Consider this, most leases change over at the end of the month or the beginning of the month. This means that a move at either of these times can be drastically more expensive than a move during the midpoint of the month. This is something you will definitely want to take into account, especially if you are on a tight budget.

What Time of the Week is It-
It should come to of no surprise that most people move on the weekends, because of this it will always cost more to move on the weekends. Whenever possible, always try to schedule a move during the week to avoid the elevated price of a weekend move.

What Time of the Day is It-
Believe it or not even the time of day can have dramatic effects on your next move. Take for instance moving during rush hour traffic, this can cause short moves to become long drawn out processes. Also something to consider is heat: moving mid-day in the summer is going to be a lot tougher to deal with vs. early morning or evening.

All of these tips are something to think about in your next move. Of course if you are looking to completely simplify the entire process than Seattle Select Moving Services is here to help make your next move a move of ease and simplicity. Simply contact us for more information or fill out a contact form on this website for further assistance. Thanks for your consideration in using Seattle Select Moving Services to schedule your next move!

Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work (Part Two)

Five (more) Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work 

Bag your clothes –
I know we mentioned this before, but that’s because it really works. Something as simple as a black trash bag is great for keeping your clothes clean and dry as well as on the hangers. Simply pull the whole bag up around a cluster of clothes, tie around the top of the hangers and seal with some tape…And voilà, your clothes are safe and sound.

Take Pictures –
Putting back together your home after a move can be a lot like solving a jigsaw puzzle, and who has time for that in the beginning? Instead, try taking pictures of different areas of the house: living room, dining room and bedrooms just to start. You can also take pictures of dishes to make sure you can fit all the items back into the cupboards.

Keep The Fish Alive –
Many people will just flush the aquatic pets’ home down the drain, this is a bad idea. Why? Because fish are a great way to add familiarity to your new home, and a fish tank is its own tiny ecosystem complete with bacteria that is important to your fish. Instead, save some of the water and the fish to add a sense of “home” to your new home. And the existing water will help ensure your fish endure the move.

Don’t Clutter Up the New Garage –
Avoid the tendency to put boxes in the garage. Instead take the extra minute to carry the box to its appropriate place in the house. This will help you dodge the pitfall of filling up the garage with boxes and never getting them unpacked.

Leave the Television in the Box –
Moving can get hectic and tiresome, so the key is to keep the comforts at bay. You can guarantee that if you unpack the T.V. and set it up early your move is going to take a lot longer. If you keep it tucked away while unpacking, you will get everything done in your new home and can use the big screen as a reward for finishing the set-up of your new home.

Seattle Moving tips

Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work (Part One)
Moving can be a hassle, and sometimes a tip or two can change it all… So today here at Seattle Select Moving Services we’re gonna share with you a few tips that may be a little “different” but will greatly improve your next big move.
Ten Weird Tips for Moving That Really Work
Whine with Socks Please –
Typically whine goes well with cheese, but you can have that combo to celebrate the finishing of your new move. Instead try using your socks to keep your favorite stem wear safe.
Stack Plates on Plates –
Instead of painstakingly wrapping each plate separately from one another a great tip for this is to wrap an entire stack nice in tight in plastic wrap. Make sure to place some form of padding between each plate, newspaper can work as well as bubble wrap or even other Styrofoam plates.
Sheet Can be Used for More than Making Ghost Costumes –
Your extra sheets can be used to protect any piece of furniture in your home as well as a cover for your bed to keep it clean. Using sheets also helps in freeing up packaging space.
You Can Pack By Color –
Of course you can label every box, but this can get time consuming and the letters may become illegible to read. Instead try getting some colored stickers and using those to color codes the boxes, of course you will want to create a legend on a note pad of some type. This can help eliminate confusion and make unpacking a snap.
Use wheeled Luggage for Books –
If you own one of those cool little carry-ons with the wheels and a handle you can use it for moving your books. Whatever you do avoid using heavy duffle bags as they can get way too heavy to carry and a hurt back never helped anyone move. Instead get your smaller pieces of luggage and try using those for books.
These tips are just some ideas to help make your next move a snap

Five Moving Tips from Seattle Select Movers

As always your satisfaction is of great importance to us. Today we want to give you some more tips to make your move a great one. Always remember that Seattle Select Moving Services is just a phone call away.

Tips to help make your move better from Seattle Select Movers

Always Pack Ahead
It’s always best to avoid packing on the last day; there are certain things you can pack ahead of time to make your move less stressful. For example if you’re moving in the height of summer you can pack your winter clothes. To make things easier you can box up all your extra hygiene products and live out of a travel case for the last week.

Another tip: the last few days avoid buying excessive groceries as well as preparing meals that take massive time and utensils. Also clean your trash cans and waste baskets ahead of time, they are perfect for storing items while moving.

Maximize Your Wardrobe Box Use
Getting your wardrobe organized early helps make things much easier for you. It’s best to layer your wardrobe boxes, you can start with sturdier items such as shoes and boots on the bottom of the boxes, place them in bags to avoid dirtying your other clothes. Next pack your hanging items and make sure they’re tight to avoid them falling off the hangers. You can finish it off with some sweaters and purses to create a tight fit. This will make it easier when unpacking; if you need boxes don’t forget to ask about the durable easy to manage storage containers we rent at Seattle Select Moving.

Consolidate Cleaning Supplies
If cleaning your old house is a must, put together a simple kit of cleaning supplies, paper towels and sponges. Clean everything as soon as possible, (don’t forget cupboards, drawers,and windows!) Vacuuming can be done as the movers empty each room. Don’t forget the oven!

Use Your Luggage
Luggage and duffle bags are a great way to store bulky fabrics like towels, bed sheets and blankets. You can also put our favorite outfits in a suitcase or duffle bag for easy access for the next week while you’re unpacking.

Keep Important Papers With You
These important papers could include: records, diplomas, birth certificates, your moving estimates and new job contacts, as well as utility companies, bank records, current bills, closing papers, and phone numbers. It’s best to keep these with you for easy access in case you need them.

Thank You
As always we just want to say thanks for taking the time to read this article and using Seattle Select Moving Services. We appreciate you and guarantee 100% satisfaction.
