Moving after the loss of a loved one

Whenever someone experiences the loss of a loved one, it is a very difficult time. Along with grieving, those left behind are often lost in mounds of paperwork as they try to settle the affairs of their departed loved one. Because we have no control over when people pass away, those close to them may have already had a move planned prior to the loss of their loved one. What does that look like?

Cross Country Moves

Whether you are making a move for the military, to change jobs or careers, to be closer to family, or to settle down for retirement, we know that moving is a big task. When that move is not local and includes crossing multiple state lines, we understand that the big task just got even bigger. So, where do you start? Your first step should be to call your local movers at Florida Moving Systems. We can explain all the services we offer including packing, moving, and storage. We will do all that we can to work with your budget and make your big task feel at least a little smaller!

We have partnered with the Updater app which is a great tool to use when making your cross-country move. It decreases the task of making tons of phone calls or being online for hours. These are hours you can spend doing other things to expedite your move or simply sitting down with your family to take a break from the business of moving.

The Updater app allows you to do things like get your utilities connected and have your mail forwarded to your new address. It is a one-stop “shop” for what would otherwise require multiple phone calls, websites, and possibly even errands to the locations. What a timesaver!

When making a cross-country move, there are many things to be considered. Although our Updater app can help with a lot, there are some things you will need to do that it can’t help you do. If you have children, you will need to find out what school district your house is in and get them registered for school. You will also need to register your vehicles in your new home state, but this probably cannot be done until you have arrived there. Some states require the vehicle to be present before they will register it or issue a new license plate. Additionally, you will need to obtain a driver’s license for your new state.

You will want to keep some kind of folder containing important documents with you during the move where you have easy access to it, such as in your suitcase. You should have your documents showing the address of the house you are renting or purchasing. This is usually required for school registration. It may also be required when registering your vehicle. You should keep birth certificates and immunization records with you, as well. If you own passports, even though you are not moving out of the country, it is a good idea to have them with you, as most places accept them as a form of identification when they want you to have more than just a driver’s license.

While all of this has to be done by you, the customer, Florida Moving Systems of Melbourne, FL can handle the packing and long-distance moving of all your household goods. Additionally, if you need to store your items for a period of time for any reason, we offer state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled storage facilities in Brevard County. Please give us a call today and let us get you moving!

What are HOA’s?

What are HOA’s? Whether you rent your home, are purchasing it, or are in the market to rent or purchase for the first time, you will come across the term “HOA.” The abbreviation stands for Home Owners Association. An HOA usually means that you will have to pay a fee for living there. Yes, even if you own the home. HOA’s cover a variety of costs, but they also come with limitations.

Stay Healthy While Traveling

If you ever travel, be it for work or pleasure, you will probably find yourself on a plane at some point in your life.  Yes, there are people who make it through their whole life without ever flying, but that isn’t the norm.  Some of you may find yourselves taking other modes of transportation, such as trains or buses.  And, some of you may find yourself aboard a cruise ship!  In all of these situations, you are surrounded by strangers and their accompanying germs.

It’s Everywhere…The Battle With Laundry

The Battle with Laundry

Does it ever feel like doing laundry is a losing battle? You look at that beautiful, empty laundry basket and feel such a sense of accomplishment. Then, everyone gets ready for bed that evening. You walk past the laundry basket and it’s already at least half full again. You want to raise your fist in the air and cry out, “WHY???” Why does it reappear so quickly? Why does it never seem to end? And, why doesn’t a laundry fairy show up and help? OK, the last one is outside of the realm of possibility, but wouldn’t it be awesome?
