Moving can be a stressful time for everyone in the household, including your pets. At Advance Moving and Storage, we can help you humans with the move so that you can focus on helping your four-legged friends. Here are some tips for moving with pets from the ASPCA: When you’re packing and preparing for your move, you can help your pets get used the idea by bringing in moving boxes early. Cats especially have a hard time adjusting to change, so try to give them some extra attention and care during the whole process. On the day of your move, place animals in a room where they can be comfortable. Keep the door closed so that they won’t be in the way of the movers or get scared and try to run away. If your animal needs to be put in a crate for your move, set their carrier out for them to inspect a few days before the actual move. While on the road, be sure to make frequent stops to walk your dogs and check on your feline friends. When you arrive at your new home, again secure your animals in a comfortable room while the movers bring in your belongings. Your cats...

Storing Heat-Sensitive Items ǀ Movers New Bern, NC

At Advance Moving and Storage, INC. we are movers who are here to help you have the best move possible in Greenville, NC, New Bern, NC, Kinston, NC, and surrounding areas. We’re dedicated to making sure you get everything you need on your next move. Large and small moves welcome, whether you’re local, intrastate, or interstate, our courteous, experienced personnel are ready to help. As you prepare to move, you’ll probably pack and unpack over a span of time. Very rarely does anyone do either all in one day. So, that means that some items will be set aside, perhaps in a storage unit or your attic, until you need them or you’ve got time to unpack them. Unless you’re using a climate-controlled unit or your attic is insulated and air-conditioned, your belongings will likely get exposed to some high temperatures over the summer months. This won’t affect some items, but others can be especially sensitive to extreme temperatures and can be damaged by the heat of storage. If you plan to put away some of your belongings, be aware of the items that could be damaged by the heat. You’ll probably want to opt to store these items in an air-conditioned space instead, like a spare room in your home. Here’s a list of these types of items: Wooden and/or leather furniture can expand and warp when exposed to extreme heat. Photographs are especially sensitive to heat, so you’ll want to keep them in a cool area. Appliances can get damaged when stored in a overly warm area. Wine should not be stored anywhere that gets above room...

Packing for Vacation ǀ Movers Greenville, NC

We’re dedicated to making sure you get everything you need on your next move. Large and small moves welcome, whether you’re local, intrastate, or interstate, our courteous, experienced personnel are ready to help. As professional movers, we’ve gotten pretty good at packing things. Instead of talking about packing boxes and homes like we usually do, we thought we’d focus on summer fun and talk about packing for your next vacation. When it comes to packing bags for a trip, there are two types of people. The first type is the person is the under-prepared packer who always forgets to pack something important. The second type of person is the over-prepared packer who packs everything they could ever possibly need, leaving them with a lot of bags to carry. Ideally, you want to be somewhere in the middle where you pack just enough for your trip. In order to pack everything you need without overdoing it or leaving something out, it’s smart to make a list of all the things you will need. Think about the activities you will be participating in (e.g. swimming, fancy dinners, hiking, etc.), the weather where you’re going, and how many days you will be gone. As you pack, check off everything on your list to make sure you’ve packed what you’ll need for your vacation. Rolling your clothes is another great packing trick that will save you space when you pack. This trick...

Local vs. Long-Distance Moves ǀ Moving Company Kinston, NC

We’re dedicated to making sure you get everything you need on your next move. Large and small moves welcome, whether you’re local, intrastate, or interstate, our courteous, experienced personnel are ready to help. As a moving company, we are here to move you whether it’s across the street, across the state, or across the country. Local moves are typically less than 50-60 miles away and within the state you’re already living; these are also sometimes called intrastate moves. Long-distance moves are longer than 50-60 miles and if they’re across state lines, they are called interstate moves. Whether you are moving locally or long distance, fuel costs are commonly a factor in the price of your move. So, that means that the longer the distance you’re moving, the more expensive the move will be. Whether you’re moving locally or long distance, one factor of the cost of your move will be the amount of stuff you are moving. The more you move, the bigger the truck you will need and the more of a moving crew you will need as well. If you are moving locally, you can cut down on this cost by moving some smaller items yourself. If you’re moving long-distance, you can store some smaller items in your own vehicle as you relocate, or you can sell or donate items that you don’t need anymore. When it comes to a long-distance move, you will...
