Top 10 Forgotten Items During a Move

How many times have you moved and forgotten something important – it seems to happen to all of us at some point. Well next time around you can refer to this list as a reminder. Here are the top 10 most forgotten items by people planning a move:


What Should A Moving Company Do To Protect Your Home

Hiring a professional Minneapolis moving company should mean that you are investing in a higher level of protection for your home and possessions. Professional residential movers have been trained and equipped to leave no trace of their presence behind — other than your things where they should be.


Moving Day Will Be Hectic: Movers Are Here to Help

If you’re relocating a business with many employees, moving day can be hectic. There’s no doubt that when you have to organize and coordinate teams of people, things can go wrong. You can greatly reduce the stress of moving by hiring professional movers. Maple Grove business owners can be at ease on the day of the big move with a team of professionals on their side.

Keep Walkways Clear

It may seem logical to get boxes out of offices and into the hallway, to be accessed easier by the team of movers that have been hired. We advise you to instead keep walkways clear. We have a very particular way of systematically packing your possessions into our moving vehicles. Objects in hallways, entryways, stairwells and other walkways can hinder the packing process. Allow us to determine what order boxes are placed out to be picked up.

Take Care of Your Employees

You take care of your employees, we’ll take care of your belongings. All of them should have a directive to help the moving process go smoothly. If you have non-essential employees, it may be wise to give them the day off. Sometimes too many people can cause more confusion. Have a meeting with everyone before the moving date to coordinate efforts and make sure everyone knows what they’re supposed to be doing.

Label, Label, Label

Make sure everything is labeled. Every box, every set of keys, everything! You’ll thank yourself later if you are diligent with labeling. Everything will make its way to its proper place if it’s labeled correctly. It will make distributing items to their proper place, and to the proper people easier. We want things to be simple for you, even after we leave.

Moving With Pets? Tips to Follow

Moving can be hard on people. But, it can be even harder on your pets. For a beloved pet dog or cat, the moving process can be very stressful. As a Minneapolis moving company, the RJ Moving team has seen our share of pets being impacted by moving. Here are some ways you can make your move easier on your furry friends:

Get veterinary records

Are you moving far from Minneapolis or wherever you live currently? Then you’ll need to get a new vet, so it’s best to obtain their records to pass along to whoever will be your new vet. Depending on where you are moving to, your pet may need more vaccinations, medications and health certificates. Keep your current veterinarian’s phone number handy in case of an emergency or if your new vet would like to speak to your old one.

Keep your pets away from the packing and loading/unloading

Your dog, cat or other pet may feel vulnerable on moving day, so it’s best to quarantine them off to an area with ventilation that is safe and quiet. The bathroom is usually a good place. Make sure to make the area with a sign indicating where the pets are. Even if your pet isn’t feeling vulnerable, it’s best to do this as the loading and unloading process involves open doors, which can lead your pet to escape.

Prep your new home

Your new home might confused or frighten your pet. Therefore, it’s imperative that upon arrival at your new home, you put out all the things it will need, like food, water, a litter box, toys, etc. That way, your pet can feel a little bit of comfort and normalcy during this tough transition.

Minneapolis Movers: 4 Things on Your Moving List to Think About Now

Are you moving in a few weeks? You have fallen in love with your new home and you have your Minneapolis movers booked, now all you have to do is start the packing process. Though moving day may seem so far away, there are some things you should start thinking about now. By beginning preparations a substantial amount of time in advance, you have a better chance of getting it all done. Don’t wait until the last minute and stress about what’s going where. Here are four things you should start thinking about now:

1. Food: Food is tricky because if you’re not careful, it can spoil. Be sure to eat up all food that could potential cause a problem. Plan to defrost your fridge the day before you move. It will be important to have a clean, dry fridge on moving day.

2. Cable/ Internet: Be sure to arrange to have your cable and Internet transferred to your new home. This is one thing that tends to slip through the cracks. While a couple days without Internet aren’t the end of the world, it sure is inconvenient.

3. Disassemble: Disassemble anything that needs to be disassembled. When your Minneapolis movers show up, they will be ready to get started right away. By having things disassembled and packed, you can ensure a timelier move.

4. Manage Fragile Items: Start collecting anything fragile and make sure you pack them separately in boxes labeled “fragile.” By taking extra considerations ahead of time to have them packed away, you’ll avoid them getting broken in the shuffle.

Movers Help Envision the Other End of Things

When you’re moving, it’s understandable you are focused on the home in which you’re currently living. You have a lot to think about. Boxes need packed and furniture needs wrapped. But, you can’t forget completely about the end location. It is easier for our team of Twin Cities movers to help if you have a plan in place. Utilize our capabilities while you have us there. It would be a shame if you had to rearrange your entire home after we left because you didn’t know where you wanted things. In this blog, we’re going to cover some simple steps you can take to have at least a basic plan in place.

Room Assignment
Go through your new home and figure out what you’re going to use each room for. Assign a name to each room because it will help you get your thoughts organized. If you have children, let them choose their rooms prior to moving day. It may be a good idea to even label each room with a sticky note, so it’s easier for the movers to place your belongings in the correct location.

It will be important to get all the furniture close to where you want it. We want to make sure the dinner table makes it to the dining room and each bed set makes it to the correct bedroom. Have a clear plan of which room you would like each piece of furniture placed in. If you want to reorganize from there, go for it. But, take advantage of our crew while you have them at your home!

Be Present
Plan on being present the day you have scheduled the movers to come. The best laid plan is only as good as the person with the plan. If we can’t communicate with you during the moving process, it will make our job harder. We want to help you to the best of our ability, but that requires your input.
