The Batty Attic

Last week Daly Movers brought forward the topic of cleaning out the spooky basement to our future Orange County movers. In keeping with the spirit of this last week in October, we would like to turn your attention to the batty attic!

For those of you in the Orange County area that are planning a move in the next year, it is never too early to prepare for that move now when you have the time. It will save you money and time later. Daly Movers makes a point of sharing ideas and resources as well as offering our moving and storage services to make your Orange County move as smooth as possible. We have brought up the topics of sorting and purging all the areas of your home including closets, garage, shed, and basement. What about the batty attic?! Don't forget to go up there. Like the basement, the attic can be an area you want to put off and avoid but you will be so glad you dealt with it now and not when it is time to actually move.

Attics can be filled with spooky things like spiders and webs and THINGS that no longer serve you. Take this season to get up there and see what is what. It is another great project to get the family involved in as you sort through possible heirlooms and family history. Be sure to have a safe way to get into the attic. If you have a pull-down staircase, check to make sure it is working properly and remove all pets and children from the area when pulling it down. Go up and inspect the flooring and area to ensure your safety before proceeding.

As in other areas of your home, you will decide what stays and what goes. You can begin packing up many items for if they are in the attic, you probably will not be using them any time soon. In past posts, we offered ideas and resources for recycling, donating and yard sales. Another great way to lighten your move load and save you costs on your move is to sell items online. There are countless online stores where you can list your items for sale. There are companies you can hire to sell your stuff for you. There are also sites that allow you to build your own online store for selling anything you come across. Future Orange County movers may see this time (months before a move) as the time to sell online and put some cash in your pocket.

Daly Movers encourages our future Orange County movers to research the many options available for online selling. It is another great way to get rid of what you no longer need before your big move. Check back through our older posts for great resources and ideas for sorting through the contents of your home. Good luck clearing out the Spooky areas of your home and Happy Halloween!
