With Earth Day coming up on April 22, we at Daly Movers would like to get our movers in Orange County thinking about what to do with your outdoor potted plants and houseplants before you move.
As a general rule, we do not move plants as the inconsistent temperatures, inadequate light and lack of water on a moving van can prove lethal to the plants. So what to do with your houseplants?
If you will be driving your own vehicle to your new home, you could consider transporting your plants yourself. You can personally tend to their needs and keep a close watch during transportation. However, be aware that there may be federal regulations when crossing state or country lines with living plants. You need to check ahead to see what regulations there are for the state or country you are moving to. You can contact your new state’s Department of Natural Resources with your questions about moving your plants across a state or country border. Once you have that information, you can begin planning to transport your plants.
There are many great tips for our movers in Orange County to help with transporting your houseplants at About.com-Moving.
If transporting plants is not an option for our movers in Orange County, consider gifting them to friends and family to ensure they go to a good home. It’s the next best thing to taking them with you.
Earth Day is also a great reminder for gardeners to begin dreaming about what you can grow in and around your new home. Consider subscribing to local nurseries email newsletters in what will be your new community before you move. You can get to know the companies that serve your area and begin dreaming about gardening inside and outside of your new home.
As an Arpin agent, we here at Daly Movers like to reduce waste, conserve resources and remind our movers in Orange County to do the same. Read up about our move recycling tips on our last blog post-April is National Recycling Month
Happy Earth Day from all of us here at Daly Movers
This month, we shared ideas for lowering your move costs by lightening your load before moving by taking only what you will need and want in your new home. We also shared resources with Orange County movers for holding a yard sale and for recycling household items to also help lower move costs.
As National Recycling month draws to a close, we here at Daly Movers would like to get our Orange County movers thinking about donating their used books. Most of us accumulate piles of books over years and years in our homes. When it comes time to move, we realize there are just too many and they are very heavy. A large (and heavy) book collection can add significant cost to a long distance move — so donating books can save you money and simplify the settling process at your new home.
If you are considering book donations, there are organizations such as charities, schools and libraries that would benefit from taking heavy books off the hands of our Orange County movers and putting them into the hands of people from all over the world. DonationTown.org is an organization available to help you find homes for your books. This is a fabulous resource for donating books as well as many other household items. They will match you up with a local organization that will pick up your donation right from your home.
Donate your books! It’s simple and rewarding. You will lighten up your Orange County moving load, save in moving costs, and feel great about putting your books in the hands of those who will love them. At Daly Movers, we like to help make your move as smooth and easy as possible.
