Happy Halloween from McGuire Moving & Storage! It is the time of year for ghost stories, bats in the night, jack o’lanterns, and all things spooky and scary. All good and fun for Halloween, but if you are nearing the time for a move, we are sure that scary is the last thing you want from the experience of choosing a St Louis moving company.
Moving does not have to be scary at all. Sure all change comes with a bit of anxiety, but anxiety can usually be lessened when you do your research. Doing your homework will help you get closer to a stress-free moving experience. Any reputable St Louis moving company should have plenty of information on their website as well as connections to other sites that prove their trusted status in the moving industry. We suggest you look to answer the following questions in your search:
- Do they offer free and accurate on-site estimates?
- Are they an AMSA (American Moving and Storage Association) certified ProMover?
- Are they Better Business Bureau accredited?
- How long have they been in business?
- Will they manage your move from beginning to end?
- Are they recognized and involved in their community?
- Do they have good reviews?
- What other important affiliations do they have?
- And of course, do they offer the service you are looking for?
At McGuire Moving & Storage, we provide the answers to your questions, putting your mind at ease and helping you to feel confident in your choice in us. We wouldn’t have it any other way. We work hard to give you a happy ending to your moving story, not a scary one. Instead of tricks, you are left with the treat of having your goods delivered safely and in a timely manner.
Leave the St Louis moving company mysteries in the dark. Go with the company that has nothing to hide. Enjoy this spooky time of year for what it should be-fun! BOO!
October is National Crime Prevention Week. Since 1984, the National Crime Prevention Council has designated October as the month to promote awareness and education surrounding crime prevention. McGuire Moving & Storage would like to take this opportunity to discuss this topic with our recent St Louis movers. Being aware and proactive is your best defense against crime.
Moving to a new area is a huge undertaking and probably the busiest time of your life. It can be all too easy to put off thinking about all kinds of things that have to do with your new home as you tackle the tasks in front of you. Recent St Louis movers certainly have plenty to do. October is here and speaking loud and clear about National Crime Prevention. We hope you are listening.
It is important after moving to take the time to know your home, surroundings, your neighbors and the resources available to you about safety in your unique community. Certainly home security merits your immediate attention. We suggest our recent St Louis movers use this Checklist for Home Security provided by the National Crime Prevention Council. When your mind is flooded with post moving details, this is a really simple way to organize and stay on top of home security in your new residence.
After you have seen to home security issues, you will want to turn your attention to your community. Perhaps October is a great time to visit your new local police department to inquire about Crime Prevention events in your town and gather information about safety issues and concerns in your new community. If you have school age children, schools often acknowledge Crime Prevention Week with activities at school and/or delivering communications about community events. There may be opportunities to volunteer and get involved in community safety activities and events and what a great way to meet new people and feel a strong part of your new community. Check out this list of articles provided by the National Crime Prevention Council that are all related to Neighborhood Safety.
There are so many issues involved in crime prevention we want to be sure you are aware of them. We encourage our recent St Louis movers to connect with all the crime prevention programs offered through NCPC. Their entire site shares a wealth of information surrounding this important topic.
McGuire Moving & Storage wish all of our recent St Louis movers a happy and safe new home experience. Celebrate National Crime Prevention Month along with us. Be safe!
Happy Autumn! It is a great time of year to take stock of what we have. It may be time to put away the lawn furniture and lawn ornaments. A time to change the clothes in our closets to reflect the cooler temperatures. Certainly it is a time for change.
