Moving With Your Pets

May is National Pet Month. Daly Movers would like to take this opportunity to provide our Orange County movers with information on how to safely move your beloved pets with as little stress to them as possible.

Pets are members of the family and they too will feel the effects of moving to a new location. There is much to consider in preparing your pets for a move, transporting them and then getting them settled in their new space.

Pets cannot be moved on a moving van. The best way to transport your pets is to keep them with you as you travel to your new home. Easy when moving across town, but can be difficult if moving to a new state or internationally. If it is impossible to keep your pets with you while traveling to your new home, Daly can help our Orange County movers by providing the names of companies that specialize in moving your pets.

If you decide that you will move your pets yourself, you will want to consider their health, comfort, physical needs and the proper equipment needed to move them safely. Petswelcome.com is a fabulous resource for all the things you should consider in planning to move your pets whether they are dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses etc. On this site, Orange County movers can also find useful information such as finding pet friendly lodging if your move requires an overnight stay along the way, information about flying with you pets on commercial airlines, help with locating a vet in your new location and countless other informative tips.
We here at Daly Movers wish our Orange County movers and their furry, feathered and scaled pets a happy and safe move!

Future Orange County Move? Time to Sort and Purge!

Happy September! The summer is winding down. It is the squirrely time of year where we tend to feel like getting ready or getting back to normal or getting organized. For Daly Movers, the summer was and continues to be our busiest move season. But we are always looking ahead and preparing for the next one.

Many people in Orange County are just beginning the thought process about a future Orange County move and this time of year is perfect for planning and preparing. Future Orange County movers can take advantage of the change in the air and the fall clear out/clean out feeling and start sorting through the contents of their home.

We here at Daly Movers like to get our Orange County movers thinking ahead to make a future move as smooth as possible. It is a great time of year to prepare and purge! You might not be moving for a while, but it is never too early to think about what stays and what goes if you know a move is on the horizon. Sorting and purging contents of your home can seem like an overwhelming task if you leave it down to the weeks or even a month or two before a move. It could almost be a second job if you have collected a ton over the years.

Start now and start small. Begin with just one cabinet. If you know you are keeping some of the items you sort through but won’t be using them before you move, you can even begin boxing them up and labeling the contents.  One rule of thumb is: if you use it regularly, will use it in the next year, or enjoy it in anyway, then it should probably go with you. Best of all, purging the weight of the contents of your home can help lower the cost of your future move. Remember, your move costs will be calculated based on weight so why not get your home skinny well before actual move day. Be sure to recycle and donate what you will not be keeping. Check out Earth911 or Donationtown for countless resources for donating and recycling your unwanted items.

Like the squirrels, Daly Movers like to get ready for what may come. If you are one of the many future Orange County movers thinking of moving in the next year or so, prepare ahead and begin your move purge little by little over time. You will be so glad you do it come moving time and so will your wallet. Check back through this upcoming season for purging tips and resources.
