Fun for all members of the family and people of all ages and sizes, bubble wrap ensures a fun time for the kids by popping some bubbles. Despite its popularity, a lot of people don’t actually know how to properly use bubble wrap. In order to reveal the true use of the popular packing product, Salt Lake City movers and packers have two things you should know about bubble wrap.

1. The different Types of Bubble Wrap

There are six prime different types of bubble wrap available. They include temperature controlled bubble wrap, FDA Grade bubble wrap, Anti-Static Bubble Wrap, Limited or Low Grade Bubble Wrap, General Bubble Wrap and High Grade Bubble Wrap.

When moving to a new city, you should be able to fully enjoy the positive rollercoaster of emotion that comes with owning a new home. However, the moving experience often gets quite negative and filled with frustration and stress due to the time-consuming hassle of packing everything you own. Luckily, you can avoid packing altogether by investing in packing services in Salt Lake City when you book moving services with All My Sons Moving & Storage. Our movers share some tips for hiring packing services:

1. Declutter Everything

The first thing you should do before the help arrives is to declutter everything. Start with the bathroom and build your way from there. Make sure to do this one or two weeks before the day of the move to avoid the last minute hassle. By decluttering room-by-room a week or two out, you have plenty of time to throw a garage sale and use the money towards hiring packing services.

2. Clean Everything Up

Once you’ve decluttered, you should also make sure that everything is clean and ready to be packed. Make sure to clean all of your larger appliances, including your stove and refrigerator. Also, be sure to turn them off the night before your mover and packers arrive.

3. Prepare an Essentials Box

You don’t want to leave everything in the moving truck. Make sure that you prepare an essentials box with all of the items you will need the first few days in your new home. Especially if you are moving with a family, you might want to consider preparing more than a few essential boxes.

Buying a new home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make in your life. You’ll not only have to consider the proper location, your budget, and your most basic needs, but you’ll also be surrounded with dozens upon dozens of different options that meet your requirements. While there is a lot to consider, our Salt Lake City movers can help give you guidance in choosing between a move-in ready home or a fixer upper. Here are the pros and cons of each of the two options.

1. Fixer Upper – Pros and Cons

A fixer upper is a great option for those with a smaller budget, primarily due to the fact that it comes at a cheaper initial cost. By investing money in fixing the place up, you’ll be essentially adding value to your purchase. Furthermore, you’ll be free to let your designed imagination run wild. Nevertheless, a fixer upper does require a lot of work and time put into it to be a proper place for you to live in. You may also find that there are a ton of hidden costs that you didn’t expect when purchasing, and that the renovation costs are actually more expensive than you initially expected. Salt Lake City movers say another con to buying a fixer upper is having to pay lump sums of money up-front to pay for home renovations. Renovating a bathroom can cost an upwards of $20,000 depending on the look you are going for. If you will not have that large sum of money to renovate, purchasing a home that needs work may not be the best option for you.

2. Move-In Ready – Pros and Cons

With a move-in ready home, you will be able to simply go in and start living in your new home. It’s easy and simple. A freshly-finished home, you will be able to enjoy the smell of a brand-new house every time you walk in the door. Move-in ready places often have newer technology and appliances, and are far more energy efficient. Nevertheless, they are far more expensive than fixer-uppers and you’ll have a lot of restriction when it comes to design.

Did you know that simply throwing your skis and boots into a closet or storage unit is not the proper way to store ski gear? Although it is the easier option, the West Valley City movers are experts when it comes to packing, storing and moving items. That is why we have developed the following tips to ensure you properly clean, pack and store your ski gear until next season!

The main items to store carefully are of course your skis or snowboards. Since skis and snowboards are used in a wet and cold environment, they are easily prone to rust and corrosion. To avoid this, it is important to ensure that your skis are completely dry before putting them away in storage. We highly recommend putting a coat of wax on the bottom if possible. Also, if your skis or snowboard need a bit of work done, have them sent to be repaired during the off season. This way, the next time snow hits the mountain, your skis are ready to go! After adding an extra layer of protective wax to the base of your skis, store your ski gear in a safe and dry location. Minimizing the humidity will help keep your expensive equipment intact.

Ski boots need their own version of TLC before going away for the season. Ski boots need to be completely cleaned and dried before storing them. This helps to keep your boots in pristine condition. There are several ways to dry your boots. Regardless of the manner you choose, make sure they are free of any moisture before storage.

Finally, to store ski gear safely, make sure your clothing and all other accessories are completely dry. Humidity can ruin perfectly good clothing and equipment. Fold or hang your ski clothing with a few dryer sheets to keep any rats or moths away.

The spring season is one of the favorite times of the year for West Valley City movers. Spring is when the weather begins to warm up and the flowers start to blossom. There are several beautiful botanical gardens to visit in Utah, but what if you could have your very own garden this spring. Gardening can be an expensive hobby, but it is possible to garden on a budget. Your local West Valley City movers has provided a list of tips to help you garden on a budget this spring!

Tips to garden on a budget:

  1. The first step in getting your budget garden going is to know what your actual budget is. Not taking the time to set a budget may cause you to overspend. Even if most items are initially low in cost, spending a little here and a little there can really add up and before you know it, you can potentially go over your budget by hundreds of dollars. Dedicate yourself to spending a certain amount of money for your garden and stick to it. The price of your “garden on a budget” will heavily depend on the size of the garden you are hoping to have, as well as, what you can spend on your garden.
  2. Don’t bother purchasing seedlings. Save money and go for the seeds. Seeds growing in a garden bed will grow just as well as seedlings and are much cheaper.
  3. Use your own seeds! Gathering seeds from plants and produce or from a friend’s garden will do wonders for saving on your budget garden. To preserve seeds, the West Valley City movers suggest allowing the seeds to thoroughly dry until you need them. If you are saving seeds from a previous season, be sure to store them in a dry and warm area.
  4. Use clippings from a friend’s garden or a botanical garden to start the process of growing of your own flowers or veggies.
  5. Have a garden plan in place and follow it thoroughly! When you know the size of your garden and how many plants will fit in it without overcrowding, you will be able to purchase exactly what you need without over buying. You’ll also be able to better maintain your crops in the long run.

The West Valley City movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage announce that members of the House Economic Development and Workforce Services Committee approved of a bill that would start a pilot program, providing a student housing program for low-income students.

The bill that goes by HB312 is meant to match private funding to assist low-income and first-generation college students, allowing them to have housing at an affordable price close to their university.

The push for this bill came from recent statistics showing that only 5 percent of low-income high school graduates go on to complete their bachelor’s. HB312 is here to help break the cycle of low-income students falling into the social and economic abyss of not being able to afford housing or education.

West Valley City movers say that the bill helps move student to houses closer to the campus, while taking them out of lower-income areas. Being close to a university while you are in school after moving to West Valley City is crucial, so students can experience what it is like to almost live on campus.

Fortunately, passing and moving forward with HB312 is another positive step towards education goals.

All My Sons top West Valley City movers are available for students moving to West Valley City, close to the university, or any other moving commute to and from Salt Lake City.
