If you’re a pet owner, then you know that keeping your pet comfortable for a move is important. After all, they’re changing homes too! For over 20 years, All My Sons Columbus full-service movers have assisted families (and pets) with relocating to new cities and new homes. To assist you, we’ve outlined 5 of the most important things to pack for pet owners who are moving.

Keep a Small Box of Essential Items for Your Pet Handy
We all have things that we need to get by. Your pet does too. Make sure to pack a small cardboard box of items that your pet will need in the first couple of days as you all settle in. This may include a leash, a few cans of food, medicine, etc. Whatever your pet uses on a day to day basis should be considered for your pet essentials box. If you need a cardboard box, contact your Columbus movers and packers!

 
Your Pet’s Favorite Toy
Every pet’s personality is different. Take dogs for example. Some dogs can’t wait to get out on the open road and let their tongues fly in the wind. On the other hand, some dogs get extreme anxiety when in a moving vehicle. If your pet’s personality falls on the latter side, keeping their favorite toy nearby could be helpful.

 
Travel Water Bottle
Some animals overheat quickly. If you’re moving with pets, especially in a long-distance move, make sure to pack a travel water bottle for pets.

 

A Sweater
Contrarily, Columbus can get cold in the winter. This is a time where you may want to pack a sweater for your furry companion to keep them from getting sick.

 

Vaccinations Paperwork
You never know what can happen on the road. If for any reason you need to rush your pet to the vet, be sure to keep their paperwork on hand with their updated vaccinations.

Moving in general is tough, but moving due to a corporate relocation can be both an exciting and nerve-wracking situation. Most employees moving for work are relocating to a city that they’re unfamiliar with. This can be challenging when combined with an employee attempting to settle into their new position and adjust to a different atmosphere. If you find that you need to move your office into a new city, you may be in for a challenge. Fortunately, you have All My Sons Columbus corporate movers to turn to. Follow these steps to prepare your office for a corporate move:

Delegate Roles and Responsibilities 

Teamwork is going to make the relocation process much easier. Moving is difficult and the more people working together towards the common goal, the better. Assign someone the responsibility of finding packing products in Columbus. These will be extremely important. It may also be wise to have someone act as the liaison for the Columbus corporate movers. Sharing the burden will make for a smoother transition.

Make Sure That There’s Constant Communication

Moving an office is a big deal for everyone involved. Make sure that everyone is made aware of what’s going and what they need to do individually. If there are any changes to the timeline, then everyone needs to be informed. If there are any sudden changes whatsoever, this needs to be communicated. The same applies to the Columbus moving company you’ve hired. They need to be aware of any pertinent changes to the move.

Updated Listings and Services

If you’re using any sort of services such as internet, then you need to contact your provider and let them know that you’ll be changing locations. The same goes for your business listings. Make sure that your online and offline listings are updated so that you don’t lose business.

When you’re moving, it means that you can declutter and do a thorough inventory. If your current home is stuffed with things that you won’t necessarily use, or haven’t used in a long time, get rid of it! Go through all your belongings and decide what you’ll be taking with you. Everything else can be sold, donated, or thrown away.

Now that you’ve gone through all your items, you want to make sure you’re packing in the most efficient and safest way. To do this, you want to have the best packing materials- high-quality cardboard boxes, heavy duty packing tape, blankets and packing paper will be your best friends. You shouldn’t settle for used boxes that you got at the grocery, liquor or furniture stores. Generally, they aren’t sturdy enough, and they don’t load well into the moving truck.

Before your Columbus movers unload everything into your new home you should give it a thorough cleaning. You’ll be so happy when you can move into a clean home, and a clean home is the first step to making it feel like home. You should also decide where your furniture and belongings will be placed in advance. This makes the unloading and unpacking process go so much more smoothly.

Moving is both an important and exciting time in everyone’s life. Developing a game plan before you move, is the only way to ensure you aren’t pulling your hair out during your move. Being prepared is the easiest way to have a hassle-free move. The professional Columbus movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage know that moving isn’t always necessarily easy, and because of this, they have set up this mover’s guide to the perfect move just for you. If you follow this comprehensive guide closely, you’ll have no trouble having a perfect move.

Start preparing for your move by creating a realistic moving budget. Don’t forget- creating a budget won’t just suffice, you’ve got to stick to it! Once you’ve come up with a budget, you should start looking at the calendar. How much time do you have? Do you want to hire a moving company? Budgeting your money and your time is an effective strategy to having the perfect move.

If you do decide to hire a moving company, you want to make sure you find the right company. Ask for recommendations from family, friends and colleagues, and then do your research. Read reviews online and check out the Better Business Bureau. When you do get a couple of quotes, you should thoroughly check them and decide on the one you feel the most comfortable with. Now, you should start making copies of all of your important documents. Once you have made copies, you should keep all of them in a safe place. These documents may include: medical records, bank information, passports, identification, etc.

Moving into your first home is extremely exciting! At All My Sons Moving & Storage, we often deal with first-time homeowners who are moving into the first home, so our professional movers have tips for moving to Columbus for the first time.

The first thing you should do is change the locks on all the exterior doors. During the selling process, there are a lot of different people who are likely to have keys to your place. For peace of mind, get new locks installed.

If you can, you should try to get to the house before your movers do, so that you can get the entire house cleaned up. Most previous homeowners will clean the house for you, but some won’t. Washing everything down and cleaning all the floors and carpets will make you feel good about moving into the house.

You also want to check for any plumbing leaks. Most of the time, you’ll have a home inspector do this for you before closing, but it’s always good to double check. Keep an eye out for any dripping faucets and running toilets.

Another thing to keep in mind when you are moving to Columbus is that you don’t need to buy everything at once. You should take your time decorating and buying furniture, because you can. It’s your first home and you can finally do everything that you’ve always wanted!

Moving is stressful and you don’t want to add any stress to your move by putting stuff in the moving truck that isn’t supposed to go in there. The Columbus packers and movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have created this guide on what to pack in the moving truck, just for you!

What to Pack

You can pretty much pack all of your furniture, appliances, clothing and household items in the moving truck for your move to Columbus.

What Not to Pack

Photo Albums

These albums contain some of your most important memories and the last thing you want to happen is for these to get lost or damaged in the moving truck. If you’re moving during the summer you can also run the risk of them being damaged by the heat. To avoid any lost memories, keep these in the car with you!

Anything Flammable

To avoid fires during the moving process, our moving trucks will not carry alcohol, nail polish remover or lighter fluid. You should check all of your belongings for labels that say “keep away from open flame” and either dispose of them before moving, or keep them in your car.

Prescription Medicine

Any and all important prescription medications should be kept with you in a safe location. You don’t want to be without anything important in an emergency situation.

Perishable Foods

This seems pretty obvious, but sometimes people forget and pack any leftover food items. Packing food items can lead to messy spills and leaks and no one is going to want to clean up any messes in the back of a moving truck.

Fertilizers and Pesticides

Columbus packers and movers highly suggest keeping fertilizers and pesticides away from the moving truck. They are poisonous and if they are packed in the back of the moving truck, that can lead to accidental spills. If these things spill onto your belongings, you will have to throw them out, so do your best to keep them separate from all of your other stuff.

Important Paperwork

Keep your passports, IDs, insurance and tax info in your car. These documents are documents you really can’t afford to lose or replace.


Moving to a new place can come with a ton of emotions! There is excitement, nervousness and a lot of responsibility. The Columbus full service movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have been a part of the Columbus community for many years, and are here to help you find the best homes in Columbus. Columbus is ranked among America’s 50 best cities and is home to one of largest universities in the country. Keep reading to find out how to find the best homes!

First things first, you should research your new area and decide what factors will influence your decision, whether that be schools, churches, grocery stores, etc. When you are buying a house, you are also buying a neighborhood. Columbus has a wide variety of neighborhoods ranging from historical districts and contemporary communities. Think about where you can see you and your family creating a life and you will be so happy with your decision.

Once you have decided what neighborhood you want to be in, you should go for the best type of home that suits your needs. Even if you have your heart set on one type of home, or you want a specific number of rooms, you should be flexible and leave room to grow. A place that can adapt to your needs as your life changes, will truly become a home.

Finding the perfect home is no easy task, but when you decide on the best home for you, the Columbus movers and packers will get you settled into your new home in no time.


Stop Making These Common Packing Mistakes

The Columbus packers and movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage are here to help you stop making these common packing mistakes!

Using The Wrong Packing Materials

You should make sure that you are purchasing quality, sturdy packing materials from your Columbus full service movers. If you keep your variety of box sizes to a small quantity, your pack job in the truck will be more uniform. Quality packing tape is also just as important as sturdy boxes. The last thing you want is for your boxes to come open during your move.

Heavy Boxes

You might think that it’s more effective to fill each box to maximum capacity and have fewer boxes, but this is really counterintuitive. The boxes may break and even worse, you could cause injury to your Columbus packers and movers or even yourself. Try getting smaller boxes for heavy items such as books, files or canned goods.

Waiting Until the Last Minute

You will give yourself such a headache if you wait until the last minute to start packing. Spend a little bit of time each day to start packing room by room. You’ll thank yourself later. If you start early, you can also take time to declutter and organize everything.

Packing in a Disorganized Way

Our Columbus full service movers suggest packing room by room. If you pack room by room, you will be able to find everything so much easier when you get to your new place. Don’t start throwing random things in random boxes because you will never be able to find exactly what you are looking for. Packing room by room will make unpacking so much easier, because all you’ll have to do is drop the boxes in their respective rooms in your new house.
