Graduation season will soon be here. If you’re student who’s thinking about getting an apartment to start out and you’ve never rented a place on your own, this will be an exciting time for you. It’s also one that’s guaranteed to be full of headaches, though, especially when it comes to dealing with all the paperwork that goes along with renting – the rental agreement.
You’ve talked to representatives from your moving company and they told you that they can offer you storage services. Better still, those services can be bundled together with your moving costs. It seems like a good deal, but is it really?
Take apart all pieces of wooden furniture that allow for disassembly. Then clean and wax each piece so as to provide extra moisture in the storage unit. Store any screws, nuts and/or bolts in clearly labeled containers. Be sure to put all wood furnishings away from the storage unit door in case of rain seepage. If the items are especially valuable, cover them with padded blankets. Avoid stacking too many items on wood surfaces even if they are covered.
Every move that you make impacts the environment. All of your belongings go into boxes that probably contain some form of insulation. When you unpack, those boxes and all that insulation eventually find their way into the trash. Then there’s the gas that gets used in the vehicle that actually transports your items.
Are you a high school or college senior getting ready to move out on your own for the first time? You’ll definitely be in for an exciting ride. But with your new-found freedom will come responsibilities.
You’ve decided that you want to move in with a roommate to save on rent and other bills. But before you make a commitment, there are a number of things you need to know about any person you might decide to move in with. After all, your choice will determine how happy–or not–you’ll be in your new house or apartment.
Moving can be an exciting adventure but also a giant headache. While you may be looking forward to the changes, organizing your belongings efficiently and trying to figure out where everything will go can be quite overwhelming.
Imagine this: you’re in the middle of the moving process and have nowhere to keep your belongings. Or you are moving into a house with less space than you had before. What do you do?
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could always assume that all the businesses you deal with are equally honest? Unfortunately, you always need to be on the lookout for hidden costs and possible scams.
If you are, and if your home office includes such items as a computer, printer, photocopier, and other work essentials, you’ll need to take special care to ensure that everything arrives at your new home safely so that you’ll minimize any possible losses, including precious work time.
