Moving Resources During Your Transition Period
When moving to a new home and/or planning on moving to a new home, it often requires between 10-20 solid moving resources and a lot of research. For example, researching the schools, crime statistics, cost of living, demographics, earning tables, weather, finding a rental, renting out your home, buying or renting a new home, finding a roommate, finding an apartment/home, and finding a new job....the work doesn't seem to end.
The following moving resources are a series of helpful moving tips and moving resources that will hopefully help make moving easier.
How to Recycle Various Items in Your Home
One of the most helpful moving resources to have is information about how to sell, donate or recycle belongings both in your old home and in your new home.
People accumulate so many things. Many of these items are not items that will be useful at your new home. Therefore, before moving it is a very good idea to go through your belongings and sort through what you want to keep, what you want to donate, what you want to recycle and what is just pure trash. Many items that you may be tempted to throw out can actually be recycled to help our environment. Items such as the moving boxes you use after you move!

How to Find a Quality Mover
Finding a good moving company is an important decision. Many people don't know where to start, or how they should look for a moving company. We suggest always starting in the BBB. This is a great moving resource to make sure that the moving company has a good rating, a long history and is licensed, insured and bonded.

Should You Buy Moving Insurance or Not?
Many people don't know what moving insurance is, nor understand when and/or why they should purchase it. Moving companies are not legally able to sell moving insurance, which is full replacement insurance. If you are interested in this type of coverage, make sure your moving company is pre-approved with the moving insurance company. (This is also a good sign if they are that they don't have a long history of claims.)
Then contact the moving insurance company and purchase this well before your move. There are many rules and regulations about when the moving insurance needs to be purchased. Make sure to research this before you schedule your move. As a priority of moving resources, these are important to know about.
