Should You Ask For Help Moving? Peachtree Movers Say Absolutely!

Moving can be an overwhelmingly stressful time, there are just so many small details. Did you pick up your dry cleaning, return those Redbox movies, cancel your gym membership, grab the mail, change your address, and transfer your utilities? The list of things to do when moving goes on and on. Our goal at Peachtree Movers is to be the least stressful move possible, so take a tip from us and remember when moving that sometimes you need to delegate and ask for help.

Hiring reputable movers will certainly take the stress out of moving day, but the stress that builds up during the moving process before moving day is where friends and family can really help out.
Let your movers do the heavy lifting and your friends help with the packing, cleaning, etc.  One idea is to have a packing party. You can make quick work of the hard work and have fun at the same time.

  • Let people know what time the party is, and let them know that you would be happy to have their help for however long they can stay. Fifteen minutes, an hour, it's all good. And, even if they don't help, sometimes it's just nice to have the company.
  • Provide plenty of newspaper, boxes, markers and tape.
  • Even kids can join in; they can pack books, non-breakables and soft goods.
  • Pizza is a traditional moving food but anything you can eat quickly and out of hand is good. Beer is nice and Champagne makes it festive.
  • Upbeat music keeps the energy up. (Time for a playlist!)
  • Don't forget the pump soap. Dust can make some folks itchy and newspaper quickly dirties your hands. Also good to have on hand: hairbands, bobby pins and elastics for people with long hair, books that haven't been moved in a while — and other items may be unexpectedly dusty, wet wipes can help.
  • Be clear about what you need packed; have stuff separated before people come and set them to specific tasks.

Even if you can do it all, sometimes a little help goes a long way! Call us for a free quote at 404-355-8877 or visit us at for more helpful tips.

Need More Storage? You May Have More Space Then You Know.

First things first, get rid of your clutter. Now that you have, do you still need extra storage? If you do, here are a few tips:

  • Get creative with your space, and set it up for what you really need. Most rooms can have double uses, using a dish cabinet with extra drawers for your office supplies, for example.

  • Make use of your walls. Hooks can be just right for hanging up coats and purses taking up space. Another idea is to hang tote bags on the wall to organize your loose papers.

  • Utilize the space you have. Dressers can be for more than clothes, and use the age old extra space trick and raise up your bed to slide storage boxes under it.

  • Shelves can be your best friend. Install shelving units high above entry ways for a great way to display your books or trophies while keeping them out of the way.

  • Opt for furniture with storage space. An ottoman or a coffee table that opens up for storage is a great way to find extra space.

We hope these tips help you find some extra storage in your home. If you've run out of space, consider choosing a storage company. Peachtree Movers in Atlanta can give you all the extra space you need and keep your belongings safe. Call us for a free quote today at 404-355-8877 or visit us online at
