Autumn Garage and Shed Cleanouts

Happy Autumn from Daly Movers! We know that many Orange County moving companies are beginning to slow down after the moving industry’s busiest time of the year. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Orange County movers for the opportunity to serve them and move them into their new homes.

Daly Movers never thinks about slowing down. Moving is an all yearlong industry. We know that many future Orange County movers are just beginning the entire process and thinking about their needs before their big move. Earlier this month, we provided tips for sorting and purging the contents of your home as you anticipate a move down the line. We hope that our future Orange County movers enjoyed our tips and resources for doing that.

Fall makes us think about areas like the garage and shed when the daytime temperatures are perfect for the jobs. In fact, National Clean Out Your Garage Day is observed as the Saturday after Labor Day. No worries if you missed that or even purposely avoided it. For many, the garage and shed are places they would prefer not to have to deal with. But deal with it you must so let us motivate you to get started! Not only will you want to sort and purge those contents to lessen the weight of your move load and save you money, but if you are getting ready to sell your home soon, you will want these areas to be neat and accessible for showings.

It will be a lot easier to organize these areas and make them accessible after removing what you will not need or want to take with you when you move. We found this article on realtor.com Don’t Neglect the Garage to be particularly helpful to get you started. This article has great ideas for getting your garage in shipshape and ready for a showing.

Don’t forget to keep a sense of humor. Play some motivating music while you move through the task. Get the family involved and helping. Most people can get the job done in one day or a weekend. Just think how good you will feel when the job is behind you. Daly Movers are here as your Orange County Movers with all the right resources to take the stress out of your move. Good Luck!

The Benefits of Using Temporary Storage

How are you doing with your fall sorting and purging? Autumn is flying by. The busy holiday season will be upon us in a flash. This is the best time of year to take stock of what you have and what you will keep before a move. Your move costs will be based partly on the weight of your move load. You will surely save money on your move by purging unwanted items now. Throughout this fall season we have been sharing ideas and resources for sorting through the contents of the home with our future Orange County movers. There are still a couple of weeks left before the bustle of the holidays takes front stage. Time to move more stuff!

As you looked through closets, attic, basement, garage, shed, you got a true sense of what you need and want and what you will be leaving behind. Daly Movers shared resources and ideas for recycling, donations, on-line selling, etc. And do not forget the possibility of holding a yard sale.

So now you are left with everything you will definitely be taking with you on your move. Some Orange County movers may have used the sorting exercise as a time to start packing up items they will not be needing before moving day. Do you have furniture and boxes that are in the way of home showings? It is always best to show a home on the market that is free of clutter, personal items and abundant storage items. This helps the buyers themselves living in your home. A great way to clear the way is to use temporary storage space. As your trusted Orange County mover, Daly Movers offers temporary storage space. Our facilities are clean, climate controlled, and secure. Come moving day, we can load your storage items along with the rest of your household contents and move everything to your new residence.

Also, keep our storage space in mind if you will be moving to temporary housing before you can move into your permanent home. We offer many solutions for short and long term storage. Daly Movers can provide for all your moving and storage needs. Good luck to Orange County movers with all pre-move preparations!

Donate Food Before You Move

Daly Movers would like to remind our Orange County Movers that as they are preparing for their upcoming move, food storage items can weigh a lot and increase the cost of your move. Why not lighten your move load and donate your excess food items to your local food bank?

This time of year it is easy for Orange County movers to find places to donate food. There are donation drop-offs in many area stores, churches, school etc. Also you can check out Feeding America to find a local food bank that may accept your food donation or direct you on where you can drop it off.

So why not pack up your food and drop it where it is most needed instead of loading it onto the move truck? Lighten your move load to save moving costs and help feed those in need. It’s a perfect match. We here at Daly Movers wish all of our Orange County movers a warm and bountiful Thanksgiving.
