Office Relocation

Your business is growing; so is your need for a larger office space. Moving your business from its existing location to new locations is not something that can just be done on the fly. Moving all of your office equipment, furniture, and everything else can be a huge hassle, take up a lot of time, and require a lot of your personnel to make it happen. But here’s the thing, your employees weren’t hired because of their packing and moving skills. They’ve got enough on their plate, as do you as a business owner.

Having to juggle tasks and important deadlines make work hard enough, so rather than adding ‘Come Up With A Plan For Office Relocation’ to your list, you can save yourself – and your employees – the headache of moving by letting a commercial moving company help you with your office relocation. Hiring licensed and insured commercial movers to assist in your relocation can take a great amount of stress off of your shoulders. At Friendly Movers, our team of experienced movers specialize in commercial moves for businesses large and small. Whether you’re moving your office...

From long-distance movers to local movers, there are a lot of companies to consider.

Whether you are moving down the street or to another neighborhood, local moving is no walk in the park — it takes a lot of planning, coordination, and streamlined execution. Long-distance moving is a completely different beast. Whether you’re moving a state away or across the country, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Therefore, you must know how to prepare for a long-distance move if you want the whole experience to go smoothly, free of stress, and easy!

If you are organized from the beginning, you won’t get as overwhelmed with all of the tasks you have to take care of before the moving date. Packing even one or two boxes a day will make a huge difference.

If you are having a tough time figuring out where to start, don’t worry; our professional movers are here to help! Below we have compiled a few long-distance moving tips to help you plan and get organized for your upcoming relocation expedition!

Man packing boxes for a move

There are many stages to the moving process, from the initial consultation with a moving company to the delivery of your belongings to your new home and everything in between. One of the most stressful parts of the moving process, though, is packing. As the moving day gets closer and closer, anxiety creeps in. Packing takes some serious skill and patience — especially when it comes to the fragile items. When preparing for a move, many people have a fear that their most valuable, delicate items will not make it to their new home in one piece. Some people choose not to bother with the worry and instead utilize professional packing services offered by the residential moving company they choose to work with.

If you are planning a move, chances are you own several fragile items, so determining risks and exercising safety precautions is necessary to ensure everything arrives at your new home safely and in one piece. Make sure you set aside an adequate amount of...

Family moving into their new home

When asked about their personal experience with moving houses, most people respond instinctively with a cringe. Memories of anxiety, fatigue, and financial malaise seem to make the majority of movers associate the transition with stress and lack of well-being.

However, most negative moving experiences are the result of a negative mindset, not a truly bad situation. The health burdens often blamed on moving — weight gain, insomnia, panic, bursts of anger, exhaustion, etc. — are really no more than products of a pessimistic outlook.

In actuality, moving is one of the best things you can do for your health, inside and out. This article just touches on a few but, chances are, once you take the leap of faith to pack those first few boxes, you’ll start to feel the stirrings of positive transformation.

Office space

Office moves, or really commercial moves of any kind, can be extra stressful if you are the one to take care of it. Granted, all moves present their own kind of stress. Whether it’s moving your family across the state or moving your business to a bigger office space across town, there are challenges you have to consider.

Friendly Movers provides commercial moving services, packing services, and storage services in the D.C. area and elsewhere throughout the country. If you are looking for friendly, professional movers for your business, we’ve got you covered, ensuring your move is stress-free and seamless. We’ll write more about this later, but we also offer office equipment storage options in the case that there is some lag-time between leaving your current location and moving into your new one. Hopefully, it’s not too long of a wait! But whether it’s a few days or a few months, we’ve got you covered at Friendly Movers.

In recent posts of the past, we’ve taken the opportunity to provide one and two month moving checklists. If you get the chance, we’d encourage you to go back and read through those blogs — even if the “doomsday clock” is closer than a month away.

However, if your timeline is getting tight and you aren’t sure how to prioritize the final set of tasks you need to accomplish before the big moving day, we’ve got you covered. Heck, we’ll even...

Moving in 30 days isn’t easy. Usually, homeowners start planning a good long while before the big move date and begin to execute said plan at least a few months out.

But, not everyone is the same, in terms of planning style or time available to do said planning in the first place! That’s exactly the reason we are writing today’s blog, just one month removed from composing a similar piece — the ultimate two-month moving checklist.

So if you find yourself sixty days away from your move, we’ve got the right blog for you and you are only a click away! If, however, you are starting to realize that “doomsday clock” is approaching midnight much more quickly than you anticipated, we’ve got you covered with some simple and effective tips. We’ll help you organize your thoughts so that you know where to start in terms of addressing the most important elements of your move.

Remember, not everything has to be perfect. But if you want a streamlined, stress-free local or long distance move, we are the professional...

Mover packing boxes

In recent blogs, we’ve taken the opportunity to highlight what separates us from other moving companies. While we’d love it if you went back and read each and every one of our blog posts (we put a lot of effort into them!), we understand that most of our readers are busy people and therefore don’t have an entire afternoon to devote to reading our comprehensive library of blog posts.

That’s why we’ll give you the Reader’s Digest version of what we’ve covered in said recent blog posts.

Friendly Movers is a local moving company that believes in being trusted, professional, and, as you could guess, friendly! We provide professional moving services for clients who are moving locally and for those who are planning a long-distance move. We also offer office moving services, short-term and long-term storage solutions, and beyond.

Part of that “beyond” is in the little things. It’s in our commitment to on-time pickup and delivery, packing services (we get that you are busy), and tailored home protection services so you can have a stress-free move.

You aren’t likely...

If you’ve made your way to this blog, it means you are preparing for a move of some kind. It might be across town, across the state, or perhaps even across the country. But whether you are moving from Boston to D.C., vice versa, or somewhere else between Northern Virginia and Massachusetts, we’ve got you covered with residential and commercial moving services you can count on. We are professional, affordable, punctual, and reputable.

We’d go as far as to say that we go above and beyond the expectations of our customers in as many ways as we are able. For example:

Very pleased with Friendly Movers. They came right on time and were very professional and accommodating. They even called in the morning to let me know that they could arrive earlier as they finished their previous job early. The price was very affordable compared to other moving services in the DMV area. Would definitely recommend this moving service!” – Delaney, D., Five Stars, Google Reviews.

We don’t think you should only have to take our word for it here at Friendly Movers, but we’ll...

Movers moving a large box down stairs

Moving is no fun. It’s stressful, complicated, confusing, involved, and rarely seems to go well when you try to do it on your own. This is especially the case, from what we have seen and heard anyway, when the moving party is a family.

It’s not difficult to comprehend why moving a family often presents an increase in stress and challenge — you’ve got to worry about the logistics of moving your entire life from one place to another, all the while making sure your little ones are doing okay!

Folks, that’s two full-time jobs. Take it from us at Friendly Movers: this is a time when you do not want to over-exert yourself. Even if you hire a high-quality moving company, such as Friendly Movers, you’ll still have plenty of other issues regarding your move that require your attention. Not only do you need to keep your kids at least mildly docile, but you also have to handle making sure your new home is ready to be lived in. This includes making sure the utilities are taken care of, among other things. You and your significant other, if you have one, might also have to think...

In our previous posts, we’ve talked about what our moving company’s loyal customers are saying about us, along with our inaugural post highlighting our moving services. We’d encourage you to take the opportunity to check both of those posts out if you get the chance, because we think you’ll be able to see how we treat our customers in addition to the wealth of practically beneficial services we offer.

That being said, it’s time to move on to today’s blog! As the title no doubt already gave away, today’s post is all about what you should (and shouldn’t!) look for...

What our moving company's customers are saying about us!

In our last post, we took the opportunity to highlight our three core moving services: long-distance moving; commercial moving; and local moving services. We also talked about what sets us apart from other professional movers. While we’d encourage you to back and read our inaugural blog post when you get the chance, the long and short of our process is as follows:

  1. We deliver moving bins
  2. We can pack your things (you can too, of course, if you so wish)
  3. We’ll move your home or business’ belongings and equipment
  4. We’ll store as needed and unpack your possessions when ready!

We don’t over-complicate things here at Friendly Movers; we make things easy on our customers by providing a streamlined, stress-free moving experience. We figure our customers are going through enough stress while coordinating a move, that we can handle the logistics of packing, moving, and unpacking. Our process includes coming to your home or business to provide you with a free estimate. After that, we can get a specific plan in place that you feel comfortable...
