Welcome Back to McGuire Moving & Storage, your go to St Louis mover for resources, tips, and services to make your entire move process a smooth success!
With a grand portion of the United States under weather-watch from a string of continuous snow storms, we thought we’d take the time to check in about winter home maintenance. Are you a future St Louis mover? Planning an upcoming move? A good way to make sure that your home is ready for market is to take inventory. We touched on this in the last article, concerning personal items, but it is also important to take inventory of the condition of your dwelling. Does anything need to be replaced or repaired in order to sell the house for its maximum value?
If there is a repair that needs to be done, an appliance replacement, or painting, winter is the time to get it sorted so that come market time, your home sticks out on the housing market as a great buy. Take some time this winter to walk around your home and property with a notepad and note repairs and touch-ups that need attention. Prepare your action plan for taking care of any noticeable issues. As a future St Louis mover, we thought you might find it helpful to read this great article on About.com-“Repairs Before Home Selling Return Rewards”. Click Here to read about the quick fixes that make all the difference in selling your home for top dollar.
Whether you fix the repairs on your own, find somebody to do it for you, or start putting a little money aside so that you can hire a company sometime soon, now is the time for an action plan. Come market time, your home will be a shining star. So get painting, caulking and touching up. It can really go a long way in terms of the value and appeal of your home.
Wishing you all the best this winter,
McGuire Moving and Storage, your St Louis mover for all your moving & storage needs
Here we are in the middle of the warmest month of the year. It’s a hot July. Movers in St Louis are looking for ways to keep cool and calm as they prepare and carry out their St Louis move. We here at McGuire Moving & Storage do not have control of the weather, but we would like to offer a time out from the heat of the day to offer some COOL moving facts with our movers in St Louis.
Fact #1-The moving industry took hold in the 1800s surrounding the expansion of the railroad system. The first specialized horse drawn moving wagons were introduced at the turn of the century.
Fact #2-Hiring a local moving company to handle your move can cost less than renting a truck and moving yourself. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we cover labor, packing, insurance and transportation including gas and tolls. It really adds up when you cover the entire moving process yourself.
Fact #3-According to the US Census Bureau, the average American will move 11.7 times over a life-time. We are proud to report that many of our customers choose us again and again for their moving and storage needs.
Fact #4-43 million Americans move each year. That is the same number of people that enjoyed camping in 2011. That is a lot of movers and campers! Are you camping this summer to stay cool?
Fact #5 According to the Employee Relocation Council, moving is the third most stressful life event following death of a loved one and divorce. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we feel that it doesn’t have to be. We pride ourselves on delivering a stress-free move.
Fact #6-Ok, this one is not a moving fact but we just had to include it! In 1984 President Reagan announced July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. Movers in St Louis, why not take a cool break from all things moving and enjoy an ice cream?
At McGuire Moving & Storage we are dedicated to providing all the support and resources our movers in St Louis need to ensure you keep your cool during your move. Enjoy that ice cream!
