It is National Truck Driver’s Appreciating Week and McGuire Moving & Storage would like to honor this week by saying thank you to our St Louis moving company drivers. Our drivers work tirelessly to ensure that your goods are delivered safely and on time. They are dedicated with a work ethic second to none and we are proud of their safety record.
National Truck Driver’s Appreciation Week began in 1988 by the American Trucking Associations. This year it is celebrated from September 14-20. It is a week where Americans recognize and honor professional truck drivers for their hard work in delivering just about everything we need and use. According to America Trucking Associations, there are 3.2 million professional truck drivers driving 400 billion miles a year all while keeping our highways safe in the process.
McGuire Moving & Storage say THANK YOU to our St Louis moving company drivers! We appreciate all that you do to ensure a smooth move for our customers. Nothing moves without you.
Why not thank your St Louis moving company driver this week and while you are at it, wherever you are, give a wave and a word of thanks to all the drivers you see out and about delivering America’s goods. The smiles you share will go a long long way.
September is National Preparedness Month sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the US Department of Homeland Security. The month serves to educate Americans on how to prepare for all types of emergencies, including natural disasters and possible terrorist attacks. Whether you are St Louis movers about to move or have moved recently, McGuire Moving & Storage wants to bring National Preparedness information to your front door.
Moving to a new area will present many unknowns that will be understood in time as you settle in and adjust. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we think understanding the risk of certain disasters occurring in your new community is one unknown St Louis movers will want to understand before or shortly after a move so that you can be prepared as soon as possible.
We encourage St Louis movers to join us for this eleventh annual National Preparedness Month by knowing the risks for disasters in your new area and preparing for them. We have compiled this list of informative internet articles to educate our St Louis movers and help them take the steps necessary to be prepared. We hope you take some time to read over the many resources for protecting yourself, your family and your home in case of an emergency.
Stay informed and be prepared in case of a disaster. National Preparedness Month reminds us to and shows us how. McGuire Moving & Storage wish all of our St Louis movers the very best in your new homes and communites!
Well what do you know? September is National Piano Month as celebrated by The National Piano Foundation. The piano has been around for over 300 years. It is indeed a beautiful instrument and also one of the largest and heaviest of instruments. The words large and heavy always grab our attention at McGuire Moving & Storage because when it comes to moving, large and heavy items are the reasons you should hire a St Louis mover.
Ideally, if you own a beautiful piano and enjoy it, you will want to move it with you wherever you go and certainly a St Louis mover can help with that. But what if you no longer want a piano that has been taking up space or hidden in the basement? What can you do with it to avoid the cost of moving an unwanted piano to your new home?
Of course selling it is always an option but that will depend on the condition of the piano. If in good condition, you could list it in the classified section of the newspaper or on Craig’s list. If it is in ok condition, you could even list it as “Free” with pick-up. A free piano might appeal to a family with young children just starting piano lessons. You might also consider listing your free piano on pianoadoption.com. This is a great source for finding someone that may want to adopt your piano. You create a listing on the site by state with information and a photo of your piano. Someone just might want to give it a good home.
If you would like to donate your piano to a qualified non-profit organization, you could possibly get a tax deduction for the value of the piano as well as your costs to move it. For more information on donating your piano, check out Pianofinders.com
For the St Louis mover who happens to be crafty or artistic and may want to keep an unused piano that has sentimental value, we got a kick out of this article-26 DIY Inventive Ideas how to Repurpose Old Pianos. Here are some brilliant and fun ideas to consider or perhaps the article may spark a creative idea of your own.
Maybe your children took lessons on your piano, but they are grown and it sits alone in silence. According to The National Piano Foundation, the fastest growing group of aspiring pianists in the U.S. today is not children, but adults aged 25-75+ years. It is never too late to learn. Maybe you decide to move that piano along with you after-all so you can explore a whole new learning experience with music.
If you definitely have a piano to move, McGuire Moving & Storage is your St Louis mover with the experience needed to carefully move your piano and deliver it safely to your new home. And certainly if you can play it, we wouldn’t mind being treated to a song or two while we finish our work!
