Are you moving into a retirement community or a smaller home? We understand it’s not an easy transition to make, and we want to be sure we give you good tips, and are there for you every step of the way.

Moving isn’t just hard physically, it’s hard emotionally as well. Before you begin packing up your home take pictures of each room. Then, years down the road you can look at the pictures and treasure the memories you made in that home.

Once you do begin packing up your home don’t feel the need to get rid of everything – keep the things that are important to you! For example, if you have a favorite dish set keep four settings, instead of eight. If you have old bulky furniture consider donating it, and keeping your smaller items. Then go on a shopping spree for new furniture. That way your new home will be fresh and new with the special elements of your old home.

Are there items you cherish, but don’t have room for in your new home? No problem – give the items to family members and close friends. That way the items will remain close and in good hands!

To ensure your move day is more of a joy than a job follow the tips listed below:

  • Plan for a successful move day.
  • Select someone you trust to help you – two is always better than one!
  • Walk through your home to make sure you’ve packed every last item.
  • Pack essentials
  • Pack a bed linen box
  • Set a reasonable pace
  • Have some fun & don’t forget to eat!

Top Rated, Highly Recommended

I used Beltway Movers for an office/corporate move. Bill was extremely helpful, easy to work with, and was quick to respond to my calls/texts. The group of guys that moved us were awesome! They came in and got the job done quickly and efficiently! We'll be using them again when we move to our permanent office space. Thanks Beltway and Bill!

Beltway Movers were fantastic. They treated my belongings and furniture with respect and care, and the move was extraordinarily efficient. My team was Andre, Trevon, and Alonzo, and they were all incredibly friendly and even made the move fun. They were professional and clearly knew what they were doing. Hopefully I won’t be moving for a long time, but if I have to—I’m calling Beltway Movers. I’m so pleased I went with them for my move. I would recommend them a hundred times over—especially Andre’s team.

Overall really satisfied with the level of care and cooperation from the move team. The process to obtain a quote was very thorough and honest and the expertise was very much appreciated as we needed to know a precise estimate of how much inventory would be moved in order to schedule the appropriate amount and size of self storage units. The sales director kept in contact with us leading up to the move day, answering our questions and updating the move plan as we learned more about our storage needs. Will definitely use them for our next move and highly recommend.
