Use a black marker to add teeth, and silver paint to add details to the tires. Once paint is dried and each piece is cut out, use hot glue to attach each to your boxtume. Use hot glue to place googly-eyes on front windshield.

Finish the boxtume off with a “IM SPEED” license plate, and you’re good to go!

A first-hand look at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving experience

DSC_0399.JPG

-Written by Erik Sargent

With more than 7 million moves completed as a brand and locations all across the United States, and even internationally in Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, it’s safe to say we’ve got the hang of this moving thing.

Our 96% customer referral rating speaks for itself, but sometimes, numbers just don’t tell the whole story. Why not hear it directly from the source?

Customer Rob Derderian of Pasadena, California, was kind enough to let us get a sneak peek into his home move last month, and was able to shed some insight on what it was like to have TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s help with a home move.

Here’s what he had to say!

Why are you moving?

“We are moving because we sold this house, a friend of mine bought it. I already live in another location, so this was a second house, so we are liquidating it and we’re getting out. We’re taking the things out of it and moving them to a couple different places and just getting everything out of here.”

How did you learn about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK?

“A few years ago my son and wife were referred to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and that’s how we got hooked up this time. My son moved around during college a few times and my wife contacted TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, I guess after contacting a few other movers, and were satisfied with what they heard from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. So, they did a couple of moves a few years ago and this time around when we decided we had to find a mover again, we just went right back to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.”

What was your initial impression of the movers?

“These guys are good guys – young, strong, healthy specimens, so that’s a good thing because it’s a lot more than I can lift or pack or move. They’re very polite, nice, and clean, doing a good job and wrapping things up as I would expect or any customer would expect, and I’m happy with it.”

Talk about the moving experience with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.

“The moving experience is going well. I haven’t done this for over 30 years, so I didn’t really know what to expect. Planning is really important, planning in advance is important, and contacting the movers in advance is important. In my line of work I’m a project manager, so I tried to line things up with the way you’re supposed to when you have a big project, so it’s going according to plan. I didn’t expect anything different, so I think we’re OK.”

What advice would you give to customers about to complete a home move?

“I would say that if you cross the line where you know you’re going to move, you make plans immediately. You contact your movers, you come up with a checklist. [This checklist] can be found on the website of the mover. You start going down the checklist, you start to plan everything in advance as best as possible, you decide where everything is going to go. We actually color-tagged everything in the house as far as exactly where we want it to go. We did a walk-through with the movers when they got here, so I think the early planning is really important. It’s important to not have any surprises later.”

Why would you recommend the services of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to someone looking to move?

“Because I would share a good experience. If I have a good experience, I’m happy to make referrals, if it’s not a good experience I’m probably not going to make good referrals. I have no problem with referring TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.”

How to effectively combine two living spaces into one in a new home

pexels-photo-189333 - 61818 2

Moving in with a significant other is an exciting milestone for any couple, but if it’s a new experience, it can seem a little overwhelming. Before getting caught in the excitement, there are a few steps that can help to make the transition into your new shared space a little easier.

Combining two interior styles into one can be a challenge and may spark some frustration between you and your partner. But, luckily for you, we have some tips on how to avoid the arguments, and create the perfectly styled home of your dreams that features both of your unique tastes.

Sorting through the old

Packing can be a headache, and it might seem like a daunting task, but it’s also a great opportunity to sort through some old items. When packing up two spaces, there’s bound to be duplicate appliances and furnishings, so this is a great time to make a list of the items you don’t need, items you can take with you to the new space, and items you are lacking. Before throwing away any items you don’t want to move to your new place, consider donating, selling, or even refurbishing to make the old, new.

Donating items is an effortless and quick solution to unloading old furnishings you no longer need or want. Try researching local thrift shops or charitable organizations that would accept furniture and electronics to create an affordable option for others looking to cost effectively furnish their homes.

The Salvation Army is another option that comes right to your door to pick up your gently used items, quite literally taking the weight off your shoulders of carrying and bringing said items to a nearby location yourself.

Selling your old items is another option that will put a little extra money in your pocket to purchase new home furnishings. With warm summer months approaching, keep an eye out for local flea markets and antique shows to request becoming a vendor for a small fee, to showcase those older items that may have historical value. Or, just set up a garage sale in your own front lawn to save money on the vending cost.

Refurbishing old furniture is another creative way to give your old pieces new life, while saving some money. All you need to do is take a trip to your local hardware or craft store for some sand paper, paint, and brushes.

Make it a fun creative experience for you and your partner, and spend some time in front of a variety of paint swatches to determine which accent colors you would like to bring into your new space. Having a creative project to focus on is a great way to add some fun within the stressful process of moving, and keep you and your partner focused on the excitement of your new transition.

In with the new, and combining styles

When you’re packed and ready to move into your new shared space, it’s time to reference that packing list one more time, to determine what you both are lacking in terms of furnishings. After settling in and establishing what rooms need what, it’s time to hit the showrooms or online shops and find the perfect pieces that fit both your interior design standards.

Maybe it’s time for some new living room seating, and your partner likes simplicity and clean lines, and you like versatile colored family room furnishings, easily accented with pops of color. Or maybe it’s time for a new bedroom set, but you can’t decide on a color scheme to match your partner’s desire for dark oak pieces and your love of minimalist inspired design. Don’t get frustrated.

Sit down with your partner and talk about ways to combine your styles in a way that compliments each individual taste. A great way to get started is to browse Pinterest or Instagram accounts of your favorite brands and designers. You might come across combinations that you hadn’t thought of and be inspired.

Designing a space should be a fun way to get to know your partner, so don’t get flustered or overwhelmed by indecisiveness. Be open to new styles and communicate openly with your partner, and you just might find new designs you both like to make your new home the perfect reflection and combination of both of your interior tastes!

 

Home safety checklist for new home owners

kitchen-stove-sink-kitchen-counter-349749

This is a guest blog post by Reviews.com

Becoming a homeowner is an incredible and rewarding experience. However, as quickly as the excitement rushes over you, the reality of the responsibilities that accompany homeownership become apparent. To ease this process and avoid finding a costly hazard down the line, it’s important to take a moment to get acquainted with your home, run over a few safety precautions, and make an emergency plan. This checklist will help get you started!

Electrical system 

While you’re still getting to know your home, this is a crucial part to pay attention to. If anything looks odd, it’s best to check it out ASAP to avoid what could become a potentially dangerous fire hazard. Get to know where important features like your meter and fuse box are, and watch them for anything that looks unusual.

Make sure you know how to shut them off in an emergency, although it’s highly recommended you reach out to a professional when dealing with your electrical system. If you don’t know where to start or what to look for, this article can help you identify important features to be watching for and can help you assess fire hazards and risks.

Pipes and water

Know where the shut off is! You almost never think of this until it is an emergency but when your toilet is suddenly flooding or a pipe under your sink bursts late at night, you’ll be grateful you took the extra time to identify where your water shut off is. While you’re giving your new home a good look over, also check for things like rust, corrosion, and visible leakage. It’s good to identify these potential problems and deal with them as soon as possible.

Detectors

This one is simple – make sure you have them, test them, and monitor them! Both smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are crucial for a safe home. Make sure they are evenly dispersed throughout the entire home and always in working order. While on that note, it also doesn’t hurt to keep a fire extinguisher handy.

Protocol for emergencies

Make a plan! If an emergency occurs, it helps to have important paperwork and other valuables in a fire safe/waterproof locked box. They’ll be safe if the house is on fire or if there is flooding, and will be all kept together and easy to grab in the case of an emergency evacuation. Make a plan with your family of what an emergency evacuation would look like. This might mean installing escape ladders to any window not on ground level and establishing a meeting place. Additionally, if it’s applicable for where you live, it’s important to identify a severe weather shelter.

Make a kit! The basics are a first aid kit, radio, and food and water for each person for three days. The Red Cross has a comprehensive list of what to get together for your emergency kit as well the option to purchase emergency supplies and kits directly from their site.

Protect your home against break-ins and burglary

Two million home burglaries are reported each year in the United States. To help protect your family and your new home, there are simple measures to take. Buy and install an alarm system or a home security system. Install new locks and bolts, especially if your home has had many previous owners or people that might have had access to the home. Use caution leaving spare keys outside and rather leave them with a family member or a trusted neighbor. Lock things like sheds, gates, and garages and don’t leave valuables in cars. Lastly, do not publicize vacations or other times your home will be empty; have a neighbor or friend watch the house, and collect newspaper or mail create the illusion that someone is home. The best way to protect your home is to be proactive.

Miscellaneous hazards

  • If applicable, watch for tripping hazards (loose flooring, poorly lit staircases, etc.) Consider a medical alert system if applicable for those in your home.
  • Know how to turn it off. We touched briefly on knowing where the water shut off is but you should know how to turn off all your major utilities in the case of an emergency https://blog.allstate.com/20-days-to-ready-utility-shutoffs/

Be thorough, be proactive and be cautious. Being a new homeowner is an incredible and exciting thing, don’t let anything put that in jeopardy.

Four apartment-friendly smart home devices you don’t need landlord approval to install

ESurance

This is a guest blog post from the content team at Esurance.

Smart home tech is in high demand and for good reason — it makes life a bit simpler, safer, and more convenient. There are smartphone apps and connected devices that can control just about everything in a home, from the outdoor watering system to the kitchen appliances to the garage door. But if you rent your place, it’s easy to feel left out of the smart home movement, since you often need landlord approval before installing anything.

But renters, take heart! You can still have smart home technology in your apartment — you just have to know which devices to get. The key is to stick to gadgets that don’t require installation and can be brought with you when you move out. Here, we explore some of the best smart home devices for renters.

  1. Smart Security

Chances are, you’re not permitted to change permanent fixtures like locks and electrical wiring if you’re renting your home (unless you have landlord approval). Luckily, there are many affordable, smart plug-and-play security devices that can provide increased security for your rental.

The best news for renters? Smart locks are getting, well, smarter. Look for products that install over your pre-existing deadbolt so you can avoid having to get landlord approval to use them. The locks should also allow you to use your regular landlord-issued key to enter the apartment.

Additionally, monitoring devices like smart security cameras and motion sensors can be set up in windows to detect (and deter) potential intruders. While they’ll send you a smartphone alert if they notice unusual activity, keep in mind that those alerts aren’t monitored by the authorities. If you receive a phone notification, it’s up to you to call the police.

  1. Smart Switches

Though you may not be able to re-wire smart switches into your apartment, you can purchase a smart switch and avoid the hassle. These plug into your existing outlets and offer Wi-Fi connectivity. You can plug anything from your appliances to your lamps into a smart switch and control them from your smartphone. This is not only convenient, but can also help improve the safety of your place. Forgot to turn off the oven? Now you can switch it off from wherever you are with a tap to your smartphone

  1. Smart Lightbulbs

Yep, even lightbulbs can be smart these days. Smart LED lightbulbs are as easy to install as any old run-of-the-mill bulbs, but they can be set to turn on when your doorbell rings or your security alarm goes off. Some can even function as Bluetooth speakers and can be voice-controlled through a smart home hub or virtual assistant. Many are even equipped with batteries so they stay on during a power outage. Who thought lightbulbs could have so many functions?

  1. Smart Vents

Thought things couldn’t get any techier than smart lightbulbs? Think again! Portable smart devices are taking over the market, so much so that you can now purchase technology that attaches to often-overlooked areas of your apartment like your vents. A removable smart device helps regulate the air flow in your rental by allowing all the vents to “talk” to one another.

Is your bedroom always freezing while the rest of your place is perfectly comfortable? Smart vents will communicate with each other to optimize your heating and cooling settings depending on which room you’re in. Plus, they can save you some money on your utility bill. How’s that for a win-win?

 

No matter what changes you’re looking to make to your apartment, it’s a good idea to read through your rental agreement before installing anything, just to be safe. And in the ever-changing market of smart home devices, it’s also beneficial to do your research to see what kinds of devices are available and compatible with your place. Now that there are so many renter-friendly options, you can use smart home technology to make apartment life simpler, safer and less expensive.

Four DIY Valentine’s Day crafts in four steps or less!

ValentinesDay-4.jpg

-Written by Jessy Herman

We’re always up for a good DIY day, especially when it comes to holiday crafts. This Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing the love with four super-easy, low-budget projects! When we say inexpensive, we really mean it. Each of these four DIY’s were made from one small, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving box!

Here’s a detailed video to use as a reference point when making the DIY crafts!

Be Mine Tags

ValentinesDay-1Supplies:

1 small TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving box
Scissors or box cutter
Ruler
Ribbon
Stickers or marker
Step 1: Cut the two all-white box flaps using scissors or a box cutter.

Step 2: Use your ruler to mark triangle shapes on the top left and right of each panel, cut them off.

Step 3: Place alphabet stickers or use a marker to say “Be” on one tag and “Mine” on the other.

Step 4: Carefully use your scissors to poke a hole in the top of your tags. Tie the ribbon in a bow at the top! TIP! We decided to keep the tags in place by hot gluing them to one another. However, this isn’t a must if you’d prefer they hang.

Candy Name Hearts

ValentinesDay-2Celebrate the little loves of your life – your kids!

Supplies:
1 small box
Scissors or box cutter
Ribbon
Paint and paintbrush
Stickers or marker
Hot glue gun

Step 1: Cut out the number of hearts needed for your banner. TIP! Use a heart stencil for evenly shaped hearts.

Step 2: Paint each heart with your desired colors. Be sure to let them fully dry!

Step 3: Use stickers or markers to spell out the names on your candy hearts. For extra fun, include your kids on this project and let them decorate their name heart however they’d like!

Step 4: Use a hot glue gun to secure hearts to the ribbon. Tie a bow at the top and you’re done!

Twine Heart Garland

ValentinesDay-8Supplies:
1 Small box
Scissors or box cutter
Jute and yarn
Hot glue gun

Step 1: Cut small heart shapes from your cardboard box.

Step 2: Use jute, twine, or yarn to wrap around your heart. We secured ours with a hot glue gun.

Step 3: In between the hearts, we created yarn pom-poms for variety. To make a pom-pom, use your palm to wrap the yarn in a circle. After you wrap (we recommend at least 30 times!), use a separate piece of yarn to tie a knot around the center, almost like a belt. You will then want to use your scissors to cut the loop ends on each side of the center tie. Fluff it up and you have a pom-pom! TIP! Watch our video tutorial to see how this is done.

Step 4. Thread the twine through your hearts and pom-poms and you’re garland is complete!

Pom-pom wreath

ValentinesDay-6Supplies:
1 small box
Scissors or box cutter
Yarn
Hot glue gun

Step 1: Begin by drawing one large heart on the side of your box. Then, draw a slightly smaller one inside of that. Cut along each heart outline.

Step 2: Using the method above, create several pom-poms to cover your heart. We used 17 larger pom-poms to cover our wreath.

Step 3: Secure the poms-poms down using a hot glue gun.

Step 4: Use a piece of yarn at the top of your wreath to create a hook to hang it.

We hope these DIY’s get you in the spirit of Valentine’s Day! Show us your DIY crafts by tagging us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving and storage solutions to prepare for the holiday season!

TMAT464.jpg

December is in full swing, the snow is falling (for some of us), and the holiday cheer is abundant which can only mean one thing – Christmas is near!

If you haven’t already, it’s time to get a jump on your Christmas preparation! Get those decorations out of storage, get your furniture ready and arranged for your holiday parties, and make sure you are ready to spread that Christmas spirit. While TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is known for our outstanding local moving services, we also specialize in home moving, and can help assist you with anything you may need as you prepare for Christmas.

Having your home looking festive and ready for the holidays is a must, and there’s a lot more into decorating than you might think. From getting the lights and trees out of the attic to making sure you have your furniture in the right place – and enough furniture for everyone – there’s a lot of moving involved, and it’s important to maximize the space in your home.

What better way to prepare for all of this than with a special, Christmas-themed TWO MEN AND A TRUCK song on how to prepare for holiday moving?

We’ve also put together an expert list of moving tips for you to follow to make sure everything is on track and ready to go. If you need help with your home moving during the holiday, be sure to reach out to your local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise and see how they can help move you forward this Christmas!

Rearranging your furniture

This comes as no surprise, but your Christmas tree and other holiday decorations can take up additional space you don’t normally have to account for during the rest of the year, which can lead to your furniture needing to be shuffled around to make room.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s professionally trained moving teams can come to your house and help get that large couch or table in exactly the right spot so you’re able to properly accommodate your guests.

Have extra furniture available!

Christmas parties can include a lot of extended family and extra guests, and making sure everyone has a place to sit is important. If you have extra furniture in an attic, storage facility, or out in the garage, our movers would be more than willingly to help bring it inside and place it accordingly.

Make sure to have extra boxes

Storage is at a premium during the holidays, and you want to make sure you have enough boxes to safely put everything away. It’s better to have the boxes and not need them then to need them and not have them, so make sure you’re prepared to put away all of your lights, ornaments, and other Christmas decorations.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK offers a wide variety of moving and specialty boxes, and we can deliver these right to your home at your convenience!

Gift delivery

Did you make a special gift purchase for someone this year such as a large piece of furniture, appliance, or other heavy object that you aren’t sure how you’ll transport? You’ve come to the right place!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK now offers a pickup and delivery service to handle this very problem. We can pick up the large object you’ve bought, deliver it right to your home (or wherever needed), and help bring it inside and set it up.

This eliminates the hassle – and potential danger – of trying to do it yourself, allowing you to shift your focus elsewhere!
