Daly Movers Provide Happy Ending to Moving Nightmare

A couple moving from Florida were scammed by imposter movers who were supposed to move their items to Everett, Washington. Those thieves took their money and never delivered. A Florida detective was able to locate their belongings in Florida, but the couple could not afford to transport them to Washington after spending all they had on the scam move.

Chip Martin, President of Daly Movers in Garden Grove, CA caught the story on the news and reached out to help them offering to move their belongings to Everett for one dollar.

Catch the story here from K5 news in Seattle.

Daly Movers restored the couple’s faith in moving companies and delivered their belongings where they belonged-with their owners. A happy ending to a moving nightmare.

Orange County Moving Company Provides Information on What to Leave Behind

You are all packed up and ready to leave your home. Your Orange County moving company will arrive to load everything up and move you to your new home. What should you leave behind?

What do you have to leave behind? Typically anything that is a fixture stays behind when selling your home. A fixture is defined as anything that is affixed or fastened to your property. A fixture becomes part of the property and therefore part of the sale. Each state has its own guidelines for defining fixtures so check with your real estate agent for specifics involving your home in your state. Some examples of fixtures:

  • Mounted light fixtures and their shades
  • Ceiling fans
  • Mirrors that are fastened rather than hung on walls
  • Curtain rods
  • Shades/blinds
  • Built-in bookshelves
  • All cabinet and door hardware
  • Built-in appliances such as dishwasher and oven/range
  • Anything planted and rooted in the landscaping-shrubs, perennials, etc.

If you are really attached to a particular fixture in your home and do not want to leave it behind, remove it and replace it before a buyer ever sees it. For instance, if you hand-crafted a crystal chandelier and you do not want to part with it, take it down before you show your home and replace it with another light fixture.

Other items to leave behind:

  • All keys to doors, windows, gates, mailbox etc.
  • All remotes for garage doors, ceiling fans, security systems, etc.
  • Appliance manuals, warranties and necessary receipts should be neatly left in one place
  • Touch-up paint to match the current wall color
  • Pertinent flooring material or roof tiles can be neatly left and stacked in the garage if new owner wants it

Some items may be expected to sell with the house but aren’t required to be. To avoid any complications on closing day or after, have anything expected to sell with the house to be included in the purchase agreement between you and the buyer. Examples could be curtains/drapes, appliances that are not built in like refrigerators, washers and dryers. Be clear ahead of time about what you are offering to leave behind so it can be included in your purchase agreement. Make sure your Orange County moving company is aware of what stays or goes according to the agreement.

Once your Orange County moving company loads the van with your belongings, your home and property should be empty of all debris, trash and personal belongings. Check back next week when Daly Movers, your local Orange County Moving Company will discuss cleaning your house before sale and other final sale day details.

Is an Orange County Moving Company Needed for Your College Move?

Welcome back to your Orange County moving company moving tips blog! Last time Daly Movers provided our local college freshmen with tips for moving into their dorm. This week we consider students moving back to college to live off-campus.

Students decide to move off-campus for any number of reasons. Popular reasons are to save money and take the next step toward living more independently as young adults. Whatever the reasons, parents will most likely have concerns and questions. We suggest this article on College Parents of America-Tips to Make College Move-In Day A Success The whole site is a fabulous resource covering a myriad of topics for parents of college students.

So here you are in August ready to move off-campus. Off-campus housing brings unique moving needs and can be more complicated than moving into a dorm. There are so many different factors involved depending on the type of housing you choose. Are you moving into an apartment or house? First floor or higher? Are you renting the space furnished or will you need to furnish it? Whether it is furnished or not, you will certainly be bringing more along with you than you could bring to a dorm. Will you need to hire an Orange County Moving Company?

Most college moves are fairly easily handled without hiring movers. Usually a few friends and small truck will suffice. If you are moving yourself, be sure to check out our packing tips for information on packing supplies and packing methods.

If your off-campus move involves more than you want to handle on your own, Daly Movers is the Orange County Moving Company with affordable small move solutions. Contact us for information about handling your college move. There are a number of ways we can help. Have a wonderful year in your new college town dwelling and Good Luck!
