When moving there are usually important reasons why, for your job, family or to save money. There are always some important steps to keep in mind when you are planning the perfect move. Steps such as setting down roots for your move. What we mean by this is getting familiar with the area you are moving to. You might have visited your new job location, but what about the surrounding areas? Do you know where the schools are? How about the local hospitals or banks?
You may think you have everything covered when it comes to moving. You have it all planned and hired the right movers, such as Men on the Move! But unfortunately, there is always a few things that may get overlooked. Throughout the process, and setting down roots is usually one of them. Making new friends may be a good step to getting to know your new area. Doing things you enjoy such as bowling, yoga or volunteer work, helps you meet new and interesting people.
A common mistake people make is expecting too much too quick, everything takes time, and building a proper community relationship with friends and neighbors will take some time. Of course, once you are finally moved in you should familiarize yourself with everything around you, grocery stores and local entertainment maybe some tings you want to learn quick and of course the internet can always help you!
The most important thing about your new move and feeling comfortable with your new area is not to stress out. Relax and enjoy your new city, before long you will be settled in and welcoming other new residents to the area. Always remember, no matter where you move hiring a professional moving company like Men on the Move, makes moving stress-free and an enjoyable experience.
The moving process has a lot of factors and things to consider. Different moves require different amounts of thought and energy. Moving within the same town or city can be very different from moving across the country. We wanted to help you with your next move, no matter how far or how big. We’ve compiled this list of things that you should consider even if you’re moving across town, or into a new a home.
Securing Your New Place (2-6 months before move)-
Down payments made, leases signed, and keys in hand. No unwanted surprises when you get to your new place, this is the goal.
“Setting Down Roots” (1-2 months before move)
If you are currently on any boards, or participate in any religious groups, look into connecting with these circles before the move. That way you can stay connected with activities that you had in your previous location. Making connections early will help you with settling into your new place faster.
Transfers (2 weeks – 2 Months before move)-
There are a lot of things that you will want to transfer before you move, and here is a list from furthest out to closer to moving day.

Our last winner for taking a picture of our moving trucks is from South Lyon Michigan, though she saw our truck moving in Westland. We want to thank Sandy from South Lyon and the great city’s near her like New Hudson. We have been moving people all around the area of our Great Lakes. Last week we were in Commerce Twp. Michigan moving a customer to New Hudson (Lyon Twp). When you don’t live or work in the not so far cities that surround you here in Michigan you don’t always realize what this great state has to offer. While we were in New Hudson our customers were telling us how great their realtor was and what they are excited for around their new home. Just a bit away from the city with lots of trees and golf greens, that’s what they are looking forward to.

Our movers are going to where the people are moving, and Royal Oak, MI seems to be the place to move recently! Upon moving many customers from other cities in Southeast Michigan like; Livonia, Dearborn, and Ann Arbor to the city of Royal Oak, we decided to see what all the hype was about.
Downtown Royal Oak has more to offer than the average downtown it has over 5 miles of downtown to walk around. Over 70 restaurants like; Andiamo, Bostone Brewery and Red Fox English Pub with an outside patio and fireplaces to enjoy.
Along with amazing restaurants, our movers have told us people are moving there for much more; They enjoy Royal Oak’s great meeting places like Goldfish Tea or some wide branded coffee places like Starbucks and Caribou coffee or for some frozen yogurt at Sweet Earth. There’s not much to miss in this city; Brewery’s, Clubs and Bars, Comedy Clubs, Theatres, Study spots, Parks, Pet friendly patios, stores and much more.
We have been moving singles and families to this area, featuring over 85 boutiques, salons, and retail shops, the downtown never ends. Not to mention the fun concerts, festivals, and events the Downtown Royal Oak holds.
When moving into the neighborhoods in the City of Royal Oak, home buyers or renters look at many other aspects the city has to offer. It is extremely pet-friendly, with 50 parks for the community to enjoy. It is conveniently located around many freeways; the population shows a very diverse mix of people, age groups, incomes and homes that attract all types of home buyers.
With all these amenities people that are already living in Royal Oak don’t want to move out of it, but maybe their lease is over or they want to move closer to a downtown loft or farther for more of a neighborhood feel and bigger house to accommodate them. But all are still close enough to walk downtown. We move it all even if you’re in the city and want to move to another location in the city. We are experienced with people moving within cities or from very large cities and very small hometowns to popular downtown areas like Royal Oak. Please contact us and see how we can help you during your move to a downtown area like this!
