With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, the spring moving season can’t be far behind. As a 97 year-old moving company in Santa Barbara, Hazelwood Allied has everything you need to make your move safe, efficient, and affordable. We’ve got it all, from packing supplies to Santa Barbara self-storage units. Once you’ve selected your Santa Barbara moving company, here are some tips to make your move go as smoothly as possible:
Compare Prices: Since many people like to move in the summer, Santa Barbara movers might have more pricing and scheduling flexibility in the spring. If you’re moving an office, moving from an apartment, or moving your family within the same school district, there are a lot of advantages to the spring move. If you are looking for experienced movers with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, or seeking a full service moving solution, turn to the best movers Santa Barbara has to offer, Hazelwood Allied Moving & Storage.

Pack the Winter Gear First: You won’t need it for a long time, and it will help you get started on the packing process. Clearly label all the boxes with their contents, and get them out of the way so you can move on to the next area. If you want to get everything completely out of the house so you can see what you have left, consider renting one of our Santa Barbara storage units on a short-term basis.
Seal Your Boxes Tightly: Depending on where you are moving, spring can be a time of heavy pollen. Make sure all of your boxes are tightly sealed so that pollen can’t get in and damage your belongings.
Think About Your Garden: Before everything starts blooming, are there any bulbs or plants that you will want to take to your new location? Try and dig out what you can and store it in a cool, dry location until the move.
Downsize While You Pack: Spring is often a time of cleaning and reducing clutter, so why not accomplish several goals while packing? Carefully sort your items as you are packing, and make sure you move only the necessities. Take measurements in your new home and sell anything that won’t fit in your new space. Clean everything as you pack, and you will be able to move clean possessions into your new, uncluttered home.
Get ready to spring into action and have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
