Winter Movers

It is still officially autumn, but tell that to Mother Nature. She seems to have a different schedule for most of us this year. With over 63% of the country currently covered by snow, it seems that winter has indeed arrived despite the calendar.

Traveling has been treacherous across much of the nation with yet another large storm predicted for this weekend to affect a huge area. How does this affect the moving industry? Well luckily it is not our busiest time of year, however, we still have Orange County movers on the go who need to get their household contents to their new destinations and sometimes these destinations are where the winter weather is falling.

Daly Movers is a long distance moving company serving Orange County movers and the greater Southern California area. In addition we are a Prime Arpin Van Lines agent. Arpin has been providing long distance move services for over 100 years. Arpin has recognized by Consumer Reports Magazine as being #1 in customer satisfaction, and by Logistics Management magazine as being #1 in customer service, value, and on-time performance. As a Prime Arpin agent, Daly Movers is prepared and experienced when it comes to harsh weather and long distance moves, and has the nationwide resources to move you in any weather conditions. No matter what the weather, and how many states we need to cross, we will bring your goods home.

Just a reminder to our long distance Orange County movers- please be safe along your own move journey. Whether you are flying to your new destination or driving, be prepared if you are moving to or from a winter weather affected area. Be sure to pack the essentials in case of a weather emergency. Keep an eye on the weather reports and airport closings/cancellations etc. You could be stuck at an airport or on an interstate. Airports aren’t the best place to be stuck but they are warm and have pretty much what you would need for a longer than planned stay. Stuck in a storm on the road is another story.

We highly recommend that our Orange County movers planning a winter area move, read the Winterize Your Vehicle Checklist on FEMA’s ready.gov website for preparing your vehicle for long distance winter travel and what to have on hand in your vehicle in case of a winter emergency. Also check out the Winter Driving segment at disastercenter.com. You will want to know these life saving tips in an emergency.

And to prepare further for any type of storm or disaster, CouponChief.com’s Ultimate Savings Guide To Disaster Preparation talks about how to save money and still get quality supplies and equipment you and your family need to weather out the storm. It includes recommendations that are in line with those suggested by the American Red Cross, so you’ll be truly ready if a news alert says severe weather is headed your way.

Daly Movers wish our Orange County movers a safe journey home this winter. Always check ahead and plan to avoid weather affected areas along your travel route. Stop ahead of a storm and wait it out in a hotel. Arrive safe and sound at your new destination.

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.
