Downsizing is hardly anybody’s first option. Whether it’s because your kids have grown up and moved out, or you simply need a more affordable house payment, downsizing can be stressful in more ways that one. Here are some tips to help make the transition from big to smaller as smooth as possible.

  • De-clutter. I always say, if you haven’t used it or worn it in the past 6 months, throw it out! Of course, you don’t always have to throw it away, you can donate or even sell your used clothes or items for extra cash, but you get what I mean.
  • Yard Sale!! Yard Sales are an excellent way to get rid of old junk that’s been lying around your home for years. I say get rid of anything that hasn’t been touched in 6 months or more. If it was really something you needed, you probably would’ve used it in the past six months. Plus, that extra money can go towards your new home!
  • Sell larger furniture and buy smaller pieces with the money you make. You can do this in a yard sale of course but another great option is through apps like LetGo, 5Miles, and even Facebook marketplace. If it’s a nicer piece of furniture with little wear and tear, you can usually get close to what you originally paid for it and that money can go toward buying a smaller piece that fits better in your new home.
  • Trade in bulky items (like headboards, sofas, and entertainment centers), for sleeker, smaller and more minimalistic designs. You’d be surprised the space difference when you trade in a bulky, tall wooden entertainment center for a smoother, wider one.
  • Use large plastic totes to store seasonal items such as Christmas ornaments, winter clothes, and pool supplies. They take up little space and are easy to label and sort through.
  • Try a different room and/or furniture setup. Feng Shui is a real thing y’all! Even just moving your bed to the other side of the room has the ability to completely open up the space making it appear bigger than it is.
  • Rent a storage unit for must haves that just don’t fit in your new home. Most storage units are reasonably priced and give you the option of holding onto those things that you simply don’t have room for in your new space. We are running a great special right now where if you choose us for your move, we are offering one free month of storage in our facility. Just something to think about 😉

We know downsizing is never fun, especially if it’s going from very large to very small. But hopefully these tips will help make the transition easier on everyone!

Moving to a new home can be exciting. However, you need to do a lot of preparation. From planning your relocation to boxing up your things, it’s very easy to forget a couple of things.

For your move to be successful, you need to make sure that you are ready for the movers well ahead of time. This will help avoid last-minute hiccups.
To make it simple, we’ve prepared the 9 most important things to do before the movers arrive.

1. Get rid of useless items.
Prior to moving, make sure your home is clutter free. To save on time required for professionally packing them and the money required for shipping, make sure you donate or sell items you no longer use.
According to experts, if you haven’t used an item for a period exceeding one year, it’s recommended that you consider parting with it.
2. Have a plan for your packing.

Who will be responsible for packing and unpacking on your moving day? If you’ll be doing it yourself, then you should make sure you use lots of padding. For this purpose, you may use items like blankets, bubble wrap or newspaper.
This is necessary to prevent items from breaking. If you are responsible for the packing and some things unfortunately break, the moving company will not be liable for any of the damages.
And to keep track of where it all needs to go, make sure you have labels on all boxes. Don’t forget to include your name, the name of the contents and the room destination.
3. Prepare and protect your house.
It’s entirely up to you to prepare and protect both your old and new home before the movers arrive. Keep your home free from water damage if the weather brings rain, snow, ice or sleet.
It’s advisable to place large tarps or blankets in the entryway, hallway, on the doorsteps, and in the doorways for added protection.
4. Consider getting insurance.
If you are moving items of great monetary or sentimental value, it’s highly recommended that you consider getting insurance. Before choosing one, make sure that you have understood all the specific conditions and differences of the different liability protection types.
5. Clean and organize.
Everything you intend to pack should be clean and organized. Do the following:
• Pack beddings separately.
• Drain the fuel out of your fuel-powered tools such as snow blower or lawn mower.
• Empty items like bookshelves, cupboards, and drawers.
• Remove the batteries from all devices.
• Unplug, empty, and clean all electrical appliances such as dishwasher and fridge.
6. Create an inventory.
Inventory your home room by room. This helps document your stuff should something get damaged or go missing. Creating separating sheets for each room is a good idea.
Your inventory list should contain the following items:
• Copies of important documents.
• A record of your belongings.
• Pictures of all your belongings. You can easily do this using your phone’s camera.
No so organizationally-inclined? Don’t worry. There are many apps to help you with your moving inventory. They include Sortly, MuStuff2, Moving Day, Moving Checklist Pro, and Moveline.
7. Have a plan for your pets.
It’s important to keep your pet contained in one area during the move. The last thing you want is for poor Fluffy or Fido to get lost in the shuffle of moving day. You have several options to keep your pet safe.
One, use a gate in the doorframe to confine them to one room. Two, have someone watch over them. Or three, utilize a crate – it’s simple and gets the job done.
8. Hire a babysitter for small children.

You will agree that moving boxes and juggling toddlers simultaneously isn’t a great idea. Whether it’s a friend, a family member, daycare, or babysitter, you’ll need someone reliable to watch over your child.
9. Measure doors and prepare furniture.
The idea here is to make sure that your furniture will pass through. Measure the doors and along steep staircases, sharp turns, and narrow corridors. If your furniture is particularly bulky and large and the doorways are particularly small, it’s best to notify your moving company.

Sure, moving can be a hassle. However, with proper planning and with the right moving company, the process can be smooth and painless.

Welcoming the Joneses.
Let’s get neighborly, shall we. Welcoming new neighbors into the community has been a tradition for centuries. So the question arises, what is the proper etiquette for welcoming a new neighbor into your neighborhood? Meeting new people can sometimes be awkward, however sometimes you get lucky and things just happen naturally. Either way, when greeting the newcomers, you don’t want to come off as pushy or weird. Your introduction of yourself can set the tone for the relationship that you have with your neighbors. Historically each culture has its own way of greeting the neighbors, most of the time a small gift is given. Here are some traditions from around the world, and some gift ideas for welcoming the neighbors.
In China, each welcoming gift signifies something different. Traditionally the Chinese give candles as a housewarming gift, in hopes that you will always have light in your life. Bread is also a traditional gift, it is given with the message that your neighbor hopes you will never go hungry or be without food. Wine however is given as a way to say we hope your life will be sweet. Salt is another gift that is given in China, in hopes that your life will always have spice and flare. Neighbors beware; in Chinese culture it is never appropriate to give a gift such as clocks, books, or umbrellas. These are considered bad luck in the Chinese culture and it would not be taken as a sign of welcome.
In Italy, a gift of olive oil would be appropriate. Olive oil is given with the wishes of good health, and is customarily given to newlywed wives, as it is believed to keep the husband faithful. A gift of rice might be given along with the olive oil to younger couples. This is meant to symbolize fertility and wishes for you to be blessed with many children. Italians also give the gift of a new broom, this is to sweep away any evil in the home, and to make sure the home stays clean of any negativity.
In Germany, ancient Norsemen felt that the great oak tree held a lot of significance. In older German culture they would collect acorns from the oak tree and place them in the windowsills to protect the home from evil spirits. In today’s culture it might seem a tad odd to give your neighbor an acorn for their home. So the culture has adapted, and now it is customary to give the newcomers a gift of cookware that is adorned with the image of an acorn. It was also believed that a rooster as a pet in the home would keep away unwanted trespassers. Just like the acorn, you wouldn’t want to give your neighbor an actual rooster as a gift in today’s society. Instead most settle for decorative items that have the rooster image on them.
In Kenya, as well as many other African countries, it is customary to welcome your new friends with a three legged stool and a traditional oxtail fly whisk. The three legged stool is used in Kenyan culture primarily by the women of the family for cooking and grinding. The three legs of the stool represent the balance in our life, and without one of the legs we would be out of balance and unsustainable. The oxtail however is given as a sign of power in the home, and generally signifies the man’s role in the household.
In Korea, toilet paper and cleaning supplies are the go to welcome gift. In Korea’s earlier days, it was a very poor country and toilet paper and detergent were very pricey items that not every home could afford. So it was a tradition to welcome new people, especially newlyweds, with the gift of toilet paper and detergent. The length of the sheets of toilet paper symbolically represents the prosperity wished upon your marriage and life. The bubbles of the detergent were well wishes in hopes that your life would “bubble over” and be abundant. Strange as it may seem, I think toilet paper is a great gift to give!
Lastly, in the United States we have a more simple culture. Traditionally in the US it is customary to gift a house plant to show wishes of growth in the new home. According to Martha Stewart it is becoming more popular to give a symbolic gift that other cultures have adapted to giving. Bread in hopes that you never go hungry, salt in hopes that your life always has flavor or spice, honey or wine for wishes of a sweet life, a broom for tidiness and to ward off evil spirits, or a candle to bring light into the home. Of course you can always go with a nice plate of cookies too, everyone likes cookies.
Regardless of the culture, the point is to wish your neighbors well. You should greet new homeowners with a smile and a pleasant introduction. Who knows, you might just meet your new best friend. Even if you don’t become BFF’s, you still want to be friendly and welcoming. The last thing you want is to make enemies with your new neighbor; after all, you do have to live right next door. I leave you with a quote from Mother Teresa… “I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor? “

Moving…

The definition of moving begins with that dreaded word, change. As humans, we all tend to be reluctant when it comes to change. Let’s face it; most of us fear the uncertainty of the changes that come about with moving. Did you know that the average American moves about 11 times within a lifetime? That is a lot of moving boxes! Recent studies have shown that moving is just as stressful as a death in the family. We here at Wise Moving want to make your transition as seamless as possible. Here are some helpful tips on how to cope with the stress of moving.

First, hire professional movers. This is the part where we fit in. Everyone hates to pack — it’s terrible! Our staff at Wise Moving takes packing seriously; after all it is our job. We take our time to insure that all of your valuables are packed away neatly and safely for the trip.

Second, have a positive attitude about the change. Try to think of all the new and exciting things that can come with a move. This will be an opportunity for you to grow, reach out and meet new people, try something new.

Third, plan ahead! Last minute decisions and changes cause more stress. Start planning as far ahead as you can and map out the things you need to accomplish with the move.

Fourth, do some research on the area you will be moving to. This is especially helpful for those that are moving a great distance away. As humans, we take comfort in knowing our surroundings and certainty. Take the time to look at new stores and restaurants in the area. This will give you something to look forward to in your new adventure.

Fifth, stay in touch with friends. Moving takes an emotional toll on all of us; it is easier when you have support. Make sure to keep in touch and plan things with old friends as well as new friends. Sometimes we all just need to call our bestie and talk things through.

Sixth, Exercise! Believe it or not, exercise is a great outlet for stress. For each individual, this will be different. You could find a new yoga class to help relieve the tension of moving. Some may enjoy a vigorous run on the treadmill while listening to our favorite tunes. Or maybe you would prefer a walk in the park with your furry friend. Others may want to unwind by getting a massage or meditating. Do whatever it is that suites your fancy and brings you the most joy.

Seventh, create new routines and patterns. Let’s face it, we are creatures of habit. Moving turns our routines upside down. Try to stay as close to normal as possible; this is your functioning comfort zone. At the same time allow some changes to happen and go with the flow. During this process, you might find a different way to do the things you already love doing.

Eighth, expect disruption. Make sure to set your expectations to a realistic level. Yes you can plan ahead, and yes you can hire professionals. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be disruption from what you are used to. You might find that your new route to work is not what you expected, or that your new schedule doesn’t allow you to do Tai Chi at 5 am. This is ok, you will be ok. Tackle each new task with open eyes, and know that there will be change.

Ninth, declutter! Use the move as an opportunity to clean out the old. We all have stuff laying around that we no longer use or need. Now is the time to let go. There are several options to getting rid of the things you no longer need. Look into selling some items, maybe a garage sale is in your future. Donations are a great option, and also a tax write-off.

Lastly, look at this as a new beginning. Unfortunately, in the world we live in, change is constant. We cannot expect to grow and succeed without change. Embrace the new and put your fears aside. It does no good to sit around wallowing in pity, it only makes you miserable. Look towards your future and all of the bright new things ahead.

We would love to help you start your new life. For over 16 years we have been helping people move and shift into new surroundings. Our skillful team is prepared to tackle even the most difficult moves. Call us today for your free estimate.

American families & single professionals seem to be on a downsizing mission across the States, which is interesting since, in 1950, the average house size for a larger number of family members was 1,000 square feet. This has changed over the years for the baby boomers, large homes being built in suburbs to attract growing families away from the city life to an area with great schools and parks, and child–friendly areas just to name a few.  Homes became, on average, of 2,700 square feet with fewer family members living in these large homes.  Wise Moving Company has suddenly had a surge of downsizing moves of all types, areas and age groups.

And questions are buzzing about as to why this has suddenly become a popular type move and, more than that, a popular, huge life-changing decision.

A large living space brings on shopping to decorate with, room for more gadgets to cook and clean.  So it’s easy to see how we gather items and actually need more storage over time and creating ongoing cleaning.

Fewer daily chores, less maintenance, and reduced energy costs also leave a smaller carbon footprint. That does sound like less stress. This fits the needs of singles and families. As removing some stress and adding some time to everyone’s schedule is more relaxing and more time for all vacation or day trip activities.

Moving is a personal experience and getting to know your movers is unexpected at first but, in the end, everyone in the company knows each customer. We have customers that have been in their home for 30 years and are now leaving behind memories. This move is never easy for anyone no matter their age.  Moves that are on hold or rescheduled waiting for a house closing to at last get this dream house that they have always wanted. Life always has an adventure in store for us and our job at Wise Moving Company is to get you where you want to be or need to be and when you need to be there.

First, you need to look at all the moving companies and decide which one best meets your needs. All it takes is a little research & asking a few questions. Licensed for your State is a Great starting point. Checking this yourself at txdmv.gov  or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration at https://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/hhg/search.asp  which is easy just searching the Company name. F.M.C.S.A. also shows how long the company has been licensed. We are actively Licensed & registered here at Wise Moving Company.

The second question tells a big story about this company and answers the third question as well, How Long Have You Been in Business & reviews? Ask or search reviews this should take you to places like the B.B.B., Facebook, a company website, and google reviews. On these sites, you can see the comments about this company and the comments will give you a good idea how long this company has been operating as well as how they are doing.  

Always get the details on charges. Hourly moves should mean X amount of dollars for just the labor for loading the truck to unloading truck. How much is the charged for the truck, gas and mileage (if any)? What are the extra charges and details of the extra charges. Some moves are a  Flat Rate Move also called Inventoried Move. An inventory of the items being moved gives a close idea of the number of trucks needed and labor that will be needed as well as the mileage. It can include items like packing materials needed as well. 

What type of liability is in place for damages that could occur? All moving companies are required to have 60 cents per pound liability for damaged and/or lost items. Do NOT let a moving company that they have no liability. This is a big red flag if the company tells you this.  Most moving companies will have an option to purchase a higher limit of carrier liability. Make sure the moving company you use offers additional carrier liability, like us here at Wise Moving. This will let you know that the company is serious about the work that they do.   Moving companies do not sell insurance. Only licensed insurance companies can do this. If you are wanting actual insurance for your belongings on move day it is a good idea to check with your existing insurance policy and add or buy coverage you would want before the move.

Last but not least, asking your movers if the moving crew is trained and have they had a background check is a great idea. Today being cautious is very important. A lot of moving companies do not do background checks and do very minimal training. That is a trainwreck waiting to happen.  Wise Moving Company runs a background check on everyone that applies to work here. Once the potential crew members have passed our screening process the training begins.   

These questions will narrow your company search down to the trusted & committed companies. Don’t forget ask lots of questions. There is no such thing as a “dumb” question. We at Wise Moving love to keep our customers informed even if they choose to use another mover. If your moving company choice cannot answer your questions then you shouldn’t be using them.

Wise Moving Company wishes you one great moving experience.

Attachment to our plants is very common for gardeners. Moving and starting over with a new garden plan can be exciting however at the same time we usually want to bring some of the old garden with us.  Below are a few different options on getting those plants that we all love so much to the new place safely.

One would be to water them really well, dig them up in the evening with as much soil attached to their roots as possible, put them into the biggest pots you can, water them well again and then leave the pots in the garden in some shade and for a few days afterward. Another way that works for all plant types would need to be done way in advance. Dig a 6′ trench around the base of the plant and go about 12′ to 18′ deep by making a smooth splice through the root system with a sharp shovel and fill this trench with compost. The root ball will then build up strong within a smaller diameter and will be easier to remove. This process is best done 1 to 3 months before the transplant. Plants like monkey grass and liriope can be dug up and the roots cut into sections and replanted right away with little to zero shock. All plants should be checked for damaged stems and removed with clean shears.

When your moving day comes to an end and you arrive at your new home, in the evening would be a good time to plant or keep them in the pots inside until winter is over. Sunlight and good drainage are important as always.

No matter if they adjust in a pot or you place them quickly in the ground the more shade the better during the removal and replanting. Set your plants where you want them and dig a hole twice the diameter and depth and add water and compost and the plant and you are set. Just keep a close eye during hot weather for frequent watering that may be needed. If you have clay soil work in some good soil as you go. Large plants and trees are best in early spring or Late Fall and should have a huge root ball and it’s best to wrap those in burlap to move. The larger the plant the larger the root system. But the planting is easy in a huge hole and water real well.

Transplanting to a near location is a risk and moving them far away to a different climate and soil is even a greater risk. Deciding if the risk and work is worth it, most of the time it is, to move your current garden or favorite plants is up to you. Over the years, people from all countries have moved cuttings and seeds with them — and so can you.

When most of us are thinking about hiring movers to do that back-breaking task of a move, we tend to overlook all the work involved in preparing for such a move or the fact that the mover, like Wise Moving Company, LLC, actually could take care of all or most of the entire move from planning to the actual move. In fact, moves fit first into different categories.

Categories of moves:

International Moves: That would be overseas moves that require packing, boxing, and belongings placed in sea freight containers. The importance of having a licensed moving company like Wise Moving Company, LLC,  for international ocean freight shipment is significant.  Contacting the destination Consulate or Embassy to inquire about restrictions, regulations, charges such as duty or taxes are significant. This is also a must if you’re planning to take an automobile. Professional packing is suggested due to how the freight containers are handled. The freight containers are lifted by cranes and can endure a lot of movement while in transit. Making sure everything is properly packed and stored for this trip is very important.

Interstate Moves: Long distance moving across the States which also can mean automobiles.

Local moves: Close to your area.

Household Moves: Residential moves.

Corporate Moves: All business moving.

Now the most common services offered by movers to make the moves as easy as pie would first be packing. Packing services, such as Wise Moving Company’s, remove hours of work for you, plus the fact that the packers are trained on how to pack nearly every type of belonging in order to protect them. The better the packing the safer your items are not to mention, less worry about breakage, less labor for you and more time for you to take care of everything else involved with the move.

Packing supplies are available at Wise Moving Company, LLC if you want to pack your own items and can be delivered. If you just really want to pack yourself the correct packing products will be a huge step in the right direction. Protecting your much-loved pieces with the correct packing products for each is a must during any move. The flat screen TV’s must be in a box made to protect them or they are highly likely to be damaged once moved. Hanging clothes are much easier to handle and protected inside a wardrobe box. Unpacking your boxes and then removing the packing materials will save you time also.

Wrapping furniture is one service that most movers offer to protect your items. Wise Moving Company, LLC offers this service free because we know how important it is to keep your belongings protected. The film wrap to keep drawers in place and the mover quilts that protect your furniture are excellent tools of the trade.

Disassembly and assembly for those bulky items such as the refrigerator that won’t fit thru the door, beds, dining tables and pool tables just to name a few. Having a professional mover like Wise Moving Company, LLC, to do this for you will take the stress and hassle out of this step of the move.
