Safely Using a Ladder

December 6th, 2012 - 2:01 PM

Safely Using a Ladder

There are 164,000 emergency room visits each year due to ladder-related injuries, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. When moving (or decorating for Christmas this time of year), it is inevitable that you will need to use a ladder. Maybe you are painting your new home, taking down artwork to pack it up, or installing light fixtures…but what you do on the ladder isn’t nearly as important as safely using the ladder.

Cross Country Movers
I recently bought a new comforter set for my bedroom (exciting, I know). After spending way too much time comparing my options, I found the one I liked best and purchased it. But then when I got it home and put it on the bed, it didn’t look anything like I expected. Despite my disappointment, I was able to return it to the store the next day for a full refund.

What Do You Look For When Buying A House?

November 28th, 2012 - 9:27 AM

Are you home shopping? With thousands of homes for sale, looking through endless real estate listings can be a tiring process. You'll normally find that the process is much more manageable if you narrow your focus to houses that fit your criteria (and pretend you don't even know the others exist). What does that house look like for you? What features and amenities are must-haves and what are like-to-haves? Do you need a big backyard for your dogs? How many bedrooms do you need? Is your new neighborhood safe? What about the commute? Once you've narrowed it down, the search becomes much less overwhelming.

Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack Moving

November 27th, 2012 - 10:35 AM

If you’re moving long distance and searching for an economical yet easy way to move across the country, Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack is a great comparison. It’s good to note at the get-go that while Budget and U-Pack prices are comparable (for long-distance moves), the services do differ. Budget is a “do-it-yourself” service—you pick it up, load it, drive it, unload it, and return it. U-Pack is a “you pack, we drive” service—U-Pack delivers it, you load it, U-Pack drives it, you unload it, U-Pack picks it up.
