Orange County Movers Welcome Spring!

It has finally arrived, if only by date, but winter is in fact fading away and most places in the country this year can say, Good Riddance! Major cities nearly everywhere dealt with more snow than usual and colder than average temperatures. And according to most long range forecasts, winter is not finished with the US just yet with below normal temperatures forecast next week and the possibility for another major snow event for the mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

One thing is clear, winter is losing, so face the bright future and begin thinking about your spring plans. Many Orange County movers will be choosing to list their homes on the market to take advantage of the busiest upcoming home selling season. Are you ready? We are. At Daly Movers, we stand by our Orange County movers ready to handle local, long distance and international movers.

Perhaps you are getting ready to list your house. Here is our short list of reminders for things to do outdoors now that the weather is breaking, to prepare your home for the market:

  • Spring yard clean up-time to remove the dead debris of winter. Clean out your garden beds, add fresh mulch and some ornamental annuals to cheer everything up.
  • House washing-renting or hiring a power washer to make your home sparkle and look its best.
  • Paint your front door with a fresh coat and maybe even the shutters and porch trim etc.
  • Purchase a new doormat-any little touch to present a clear and welcoming space is helpful.
  • Clean your outdoor light fixtures so that the glass shines and the light glows beautifully.
  • Look for any winter damage to trees and shrubs and remove what is unsightly.
  • Place a pot of flowers by your front door.
  • Clean up any outdoor furniture to make your patios and decks look their best.
  • Give lampposts a fresh coat of spray paint.
  • Consider any driveway repair or a fresh asphalt coat if needed.
  • And do not forget to do that final walk around your yard. Stand back on the street and look at the overall appearance of you home. What did you miss? Take a photo for a different perspective.

Of course your realtor will also give you all kinds of tips too and be most helpful in deciding what you need to do. There are so many little inexpensive things you can do to make your house look like the perfect home to a buyer. Good Luck Orange County movers! And when it is time to get moving, Daly Movers is here to help!

Orange County Movers Take Inventory This Winter

With the new year in full swing, it’s easy to get bogged down with the January blues and boredom. But there is plenty to do for Orange County movers who will be relocating in the upcoming months. Winter is a great time for evaluating what you have, organizing, and purging to prepare for a spring move in Orange County. The quiet darker days of winter are perfect for an inventory of our possessions. Take advantage of this time this January to get ahead on your future move preparations.

See what you can clear out of your house from the holiday season. Sift through that attic. Go through each room and see what you can get rid of or consolidate. You can even begin to pack up the things you know you will not be using before your move. Check out the packing tips we provide for our Orange County movers.

Getting the whole family involved is a fun way to get rid of unwanted clutter.
