Welcome to the Bellhops Moving Tips blog page. Every week we update our blog with tips for moving, packing hacks, and some of the best pointers you can use as you prepare for moving day—hopefully a day Bellhops gets to share with you!
While we give you ideas about how to make your actual moving experience smoother, we also draw the lens out on our Moving Tips page, examining life around your move. What does that mean? We’re glad you asked.
Sure, you’ll need to know what should be included on your moving checklist and how to pack a moving box. But what about getting along with your new landlord? Have you considered the best way to make that happen? And how do you calculate the true cost of your upcoming move? Historically, that’s been a tough thing to figure. Moving is also a great time to purge stuff. Have you thought about places you can donate your unneeded belongings? Do you know best practices for moving with kids, and what steps you need to take when moving with pets?
If you answered “no” to any of those questions, you’re not alone, and we hope you find value in our moving tips. We even dive into some weightier matters, like what topics you need to discuss as soon as possible with your new roommate; how to make the most of moving in with a family member; and how to combine belongings when you move in with a significant other. Whew, that’s some big stuff! No, at Bellhops we’re not a substitute for your therapist, but after helping thousands of people move, we have learned a thing or two. And, of course, we’re happy to share this information with you.
All this said, the most important of all the moving tips out there is to (you’re going to want to write this down) get excited about your pending move! At Bellhops we truly believe that a move—any move—is a move forward in life. Whether you got a huge promotion and you’re moving into that deluxe apartment in the sky, or you’re moving back home after college to pay off some student loan debt (a popular thing these days, no doubt), those are steps to be celebrated as you position yourself for greater things in the future.
Bellhops was founded to alleviate many of the unpleasantries associated with the moving process. In the past, moving has been a royal pain, an annoying hurdle to jump. We want to shoulder that burden for you so you can focus on what matters: life. If you’ve got a move coming up, check to see if you’re moving to, from, or across a Bellhops city. If you are, give us a call. We’d love to move you. After you’ve booked Bellhops, read through our Moving Tips page regularly to get some great ideas for your upcoming move. We’d be thrilled to help you out leading up to, and during, your moving day.
Moving gets heavy. Allow us.
