Virtual Move Preparation Now While You’re Home
Right now, we crave family and community. Our Changing Places team is truly a family of men and women in business for 27 years–offering moving and relocation help all over the Bay Area. Our focus is downsizing, moving, organizing, and staging at our clients’ homes. Our mission is to create order, peace of mind, and beauty.
Amid the pandemic, Changing Places and movers are deemed essential services. Just last month, we were honored to help a family who lost a home in the Sonoma County fires move into their dream home in Healdsburg. We are essential and we are here for you.
During this time of sheltering in place, our team offers our relocation services to clients virtually to orchestrate and plan every aspect of the move process.
This newfound time at home is the perfect opportunity clear the clutter and find peace of mind in your household. We’re all spending more time cooking, cleaning and baking with our kids.
It may be a happy occasion, but a move is still a disruption of your routine. And any disruption of your routine causes stress. Moving disrupts the entire family.
Moves are considered one of the top five biggest stressors in life (alongside job loss, divorce and major illness).
If moving is so stressful, why do we do it? According to Forbes Magazine we move for positive reasons: to start a family or a new job; to live on our own, be closer to work or retire; to have a yard for a dog.
When the tasks associated with the move start to seem unbearable, take a deep breath and remember why you’re moving. This alone will reduce stress.
A professional mover can help not only with the move, but can increase the sales value of your home by suggesting “refreshes,” such as staging or decorating ideas…keeping everything on time and budget….
