Throw the Ultimate Housewarming Party

So you’ve finally moved into your new place and are all settled in. What better way to celebrate your new home ownership than with a housewarming party! Having a housewarming party is a great way to introduce yourself to the neighborhood and show off your new residence to friends and family. Need a few good housewarming party ideas that won’t break the bank? We here at Men on the Move have a few ideas for your housewarming party ideas on a budget! Here are a few tips and tricks that’ll make your housewarming party amazing.

Tips and Tricks For Throwing A Housewarming

Different types of parties-
Some people like to have an open house style party, others like to do a dinner party style. The number guests you want to host will determine what type of housewarming party you’ll have. For a large number of guests, we recommend an open house style.

Keep Track Of Who Came
cookies for housewarming partiesHaving a guest book is not only a great way to know who showed up, but also gives you a chance to collect names and addresses of friends and family members. If you have gifts it’ll also help you when mailing thank you cards.

Feeding Your guests-
The best food for a housewarming party is easy to make, low maintenance, and food you like yourself. The classic appetizers, finger foods, and premade items will make your day less stressful and more fun! For the main dish consider what can feed more at a low cost. Foods like hamburgers and hotdogs, build your own sandwich or taco bar, or make your party a potluck!

Giant Jenga for outdoor house warming giftsEntertaining Your Guests

Nothing says “new home fun” like outdoor yard games set up a good old-fashioned corn hole or giant Jenga. Board games, card games, and even video games will make a nice way to entertain your guests!

Ultimately having a housewarming party is about having a good time. Remember not to stress out too much about it, because friends and family will understand.

Going to where people are moving, Royal Oak Michigan!

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.downtown_RO

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!

SAVING MONEY ON YOUR MOVE!

What is the difference between an affordable move and pricey move? In most cases the difference is all in how you plan for your moving day. Your movers here at men on the move are just like any Michigan moving company is more than capable of providing a full-service move; if you’d rather not lift a finger your moving crew can surely pack your entire household up boxing up smaller items, wrapping furniture and provide every bit of labor and supplies necessary to complete your move. However; the cost of a truly full service move is naturally going to be more expensive than a not as labor intensive move. Most people prefer to pay as little as possible when hiring movers, and if this describes you then you should do your part to ensure the least costly bill at the end of your moving day.
For a local move, the relocation service provider you hire is most likely charging you by the hour. Therefore; the cost of your move is directly related to how long your movers spend on the job. There are plenty of tasks that you can do prior to your moving day which will enable your local area professional movers to quickly complete the job you need them to do. If you pack all of your moving boxes on your own, the time your movers spend on the job can easily be cut in half. You can even streamline the job by consolidating furniture and anything else going on the moving truck to a designated room close to the front door of your home. If your movers need only collect items from one room in the house, the path between your household items and their truck is short and simple which makes for extremely quick execution of the task at hand.
Saving money on your move is sure to be a goal when you need relocation services. Unfortunately, many people go about achieving this goal the wrong way, and suffer the consequences. There are many differences between a professional moving company like men on the move, and a “rogue mover.” Professional movers like men on the move with skilled full time employees will always charge more per hour than a rogue company which hires temps or day laborers to work your move. However; by going with the cheapest per hour rates, you’ll receive service which is low in quality and often very costly when all is said and done. The unprofessional workers that a rogue mover will dispatch to your home are not capable of keeping your furniture safe, nor are they motivated to finish your move quickly. Accident prone workers who drag their feet to charge you as much as possible are not ideal for an individual who wants to save money on his or her move!
Adequate preparation for your moving day is best complimented by hiring licensed professional area movers. Professional movers may charge more per hour than rogue moving companies, but at the end of the day your move will have been completed quickly and carefully. Quickness in a moving company ensures that your cost won’t increase due to time spent on the job, and carefulness ensures that you won’t have to pay to replace any broken furniture after your movers have finished the job! men on the move is licensed and accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
