You’ve made the move to St. Louis and it’s time to decorate for Halloween! If you want to add some spooky to your neighborhood, All My Sons Moving & Storage St. Louis has some tips for you to decorate your new home.

Pumpkins are all the rage in October. When you head out to your local St. Louis pumpkin patch with your family, grab a bunch of smaller pumpkins to decorate. You can keep them orange or spray paint these pumpkins white or black and place on the doorstep or on your mantel. And don’t forget to carve your big pumpkins with your family and place them on your doorstep for all to see!

Hang a haunted wreath outside your door. Wreaths featuring deep reds, oranges and yellows are staple decorations for the fall season. Switch it up and create a spooky wreath for Halloween. Spray paint the wreath gray or black. Tie a bow with black ribbon and glue on some felt ghosts. Add some ripped pieces of cotton for a cobweb feel.

If you love flowers in your home, decorate for Halloween with some candy corn vases. Find a couple empty bottles and spray paint them in candy corn style with yellow, orange, and white spray paint. You can place these on tables, windowsills, mantels or anywhere else you choose around the home.

Trash bags can make the perfect spiderwebs. A great tutorial is offered here on how to create them. These are the perfect decorations for your kid’s bedrooms, the living room and more.

There are hundreds of different ways to decorate for Halloween. Our team hopes your move to St. Louis was easy and hassle free, and wishes you and your family a Happy Halloween!

Packing may be the worst part of moving. Our St. Louis movers understand the stress that goes into packing up all your belongings to relocate to your new home. We offer top quality packing supplies to help you keep your belongings safe. We have learned a lot of best practices in our decades of experience both with moving and packing services. Here are five packing secrets you probably never thought of to make your move that much easier.

  1. Garbage Bags are your friend.

You can use garbage bags to save time and money in your move. No need to pay for expensive wardrobe boxes when you have garbage bags on hand! Simply group hanging items of clothing together and pull a garbage bag over them from the bottom. Tie it at the top and voila! You are done packing your closet.

  1. Save those toilet paper rolls

Everything you own has its own plug, charger, and other cords. Keep them organized during your move with… you guessed it! Toilet paper rolls. Instead of recycling them right away, hold on to them for your move to keep your cords wrapped up and save you time when you start unpacking at your new home. Tape them to their appliance for easy set up as well.

  1. Stock up on plastic wrap

Plastic wrap can be used to prevent spills from your cleaning supplies and toiletries. Uncap them, cover the top with clear plastic wrap and then reseal the cap tight. This will keep your boxes of toiletries safe and spill free during your move. You can also keep your clothes in your dresser and wrap your drawers in plastic wrap to save time in your move.

  1. Use Your Suitcases!

Don’t waste your space packing those bulky suitcases. Fill those suitcases with household belongings that are heavy. You can roll the suitcases where they need to go instead of lifting a heavy box and hurting your back.

  1. Use your blankets and clothes as packing paper

Don’t spend money on packing paper when you have items in your house that you can use to protect your fragile items. Wrap up dishes, glasses and other fragile items in your blankets and clothing to conserve space!

Our team of St. Louis movers hope these tips were helpful! If you still need packing supplies for your upcoming move, just give us a call.

 

 


Moving to a new home is always a daunting task. Preparing for all the changes, getting your house all packed up, and ensuring your belongings are safely delivered to your new home can be a really stressful process.

Our St. Louis movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage know that moving can be a hassle. We offer moving and packing services in St. Louis so you can relax and focus on the important aspects of your move. The most important part of the moving process is being prepared. Here are a few scary moving stories we’ve heard that we hope will convince you to take your moving needs seriously.

There are many people who feel that they will save money if they move on their own. In theory, this may be true, but many times items get damaged and injuries occur. One person recounts the time they tried to move on their own, but their couch was stuck in a stairwell, so they had to call movers to come help them move it out. Calling St. Louis movers at the last minute or for an emergency will be much more expensive than creating a moving plan, so make sure you measure all your exits and entryways and plan before moving on your own.

Be sure you get a binding quote in person from your reputable St. Louis movers. Some movers will quote you one price on the phone and then add on to that once they arrive at your home. One recent mover recounts how he was given an estimate over the phone that wasn’t binding, and they increased his quote more than 50% when they arrived at his home. Make sure you get this quote in person so your St. Louis movers can see your belongings and give a fair estimate.

Another recent mover recounts how her belongings were delayed for months because the company had lied to her about how long it would take to deliver her items. Make sure you talk to your moving company and get an exact date of estimated arrival. Give yourself a couple of days in case of unanticipated delays. Ultimately, make sure your St. Louis movers are reputable and check out online reviews before you confirm your decision.

Take special care of your valuables. One recent mover remembers during a long distance move that her box of family Christmas ornaments went missing and was never recovered. Make sure your valuables are safe with reputable St. Louis movers!

All My Sons Moving & Storage St. Louis offers moving and packing services that are customizable to your needs. We ensure timely delivery and quality service while saving you and your family time, money, and stress. Avoid the horror stories and call us today!

 

 


Downsizing can be wonderful. Whether you’re moving out of a big house to live on your own, or if the kids went off to college and you and your sweetheart no longer need 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a smaller house brings a more quaint and relaxing feel. Additionally, it means less rooms to clean, and less opportunities to create useless clutter.

There is, however, a challenge with moving into a smaller home: the packing process. Trying to decide how and where to fit all the items from a large home into a small home is a unique challenge.

First things first – Assess your new home. Determine how much room you have to bring your items with you. It is likely that you’ll have to get rid of a lot of stuff lying around your house. Take an inventory of everything you have, and determine what needs to go to your new house, and what isn’t-so-necessary anymore. Ask yourself if you’ve used the item within the last year, and if someone else could get better use out of it than you. Consider our climate controlled storage facilities in St. Louis to hold those extra antiques or other items you don’t have room for, but don’t want to get rid of just yet. We recommend donating or selling items that you have no use for, rather than throwing them out.

Tip: Be conscious of what you let into your home, as your environment shapes you. Not every room needs to be filled with items – try to keep some spaces clear and free of clutter. You’ll enjoy living in a smaller home with less items to worry about.

 

 


Regardless of how big or small your house is, the garage is undoubtedly the last room you want to tackle during the packing process. After years of piling up old junk, half-broken sports gear, dirty garden tools, and other forgotten items, it can be an overwhelming room to take-on.

Not to worry! All My Sons Moving & Storage offers garage packing solutions in St. Louis to make your move smooth and stress free. Our team of pro movers will pack up every item in your garage for you. That’s right – every item.

Storage units are helpful for storing holiday decorations, out of season clothing, antiques, and other items you can’t seem to find room for in your home. But overall, storage units are especially helpful during a move. Think about it: A move requires a lot of work in a small amount of time, so why not prioritize what you really need to take with you, and what you can leave in a safely locked unit for a while? Instead of rushing to pack and move all sorts of unnecessary items, our St. Louis moving company suggests using climate controlled storage facilities from All My Sons Moving & Storage.

When you opt for climate controlled storage, you’re choosing to keep your items protected from the elements: no pests, no dust, no warping heat, or freezing cold will come in contact with your family photos or your grandfather clock.

Will you need packing supplies for your storage unit? The answer is simple: it helps.

Sure, you don’t NEED to put your family photos into a safe, sturdy box, or protect your fine china with bubble wrap and protective padding, but why not take the extra measure to ensure your items stay in perfect condition while you’re out completing other steps of your move?

All My Sons St. Louis packing company can provide you with anything and everything you need for each step of your move, including packing products for storage units. Call our moving coordinators today, and we’ll help you get set up.

When preparing for a move, one of the biggest tasks is how to safely protect your furniture from potential damages. You should always make sure to handle your furniture items with care when going through the moving process. There are basic packing products you should purchase to ensure your fragile items remain damage free after transit. Our St. Louis movers provide you with a guide on how to properly pack your furniture items to avoid headaches for your next move.

Packing Products

You will need to invest in specific packing products for the safety and protection of your furniture items. These supplies include basic packing products such as bubble wrap, plastic stretch wrap, and packaging tape. In addition to these items, you will need furniture pads and moving blankets. The thick layer of a furniture pad works great for protecting your belongings from damages and scratches. Our St. Louis movers suggest that you once you dismantle your furniture, you should individually wrap up each piece. Before you use the furniture pads and blankets, it’s important to clean your items to prevent dust from accumulating. You can either use plastic stretch wrap or packaging tape to secure the moving pad to the furniture item, which will completely cover any exposed areas.

You can purchase any of these basic packing products at your local hardware store or for a better price from a professional moving company such as All My Sons Moving & Storage. Contact our St. Louis movers today to learn more about our packing services and how we can handle your entire move!


Moving executives and their families during a corporate relocation still requires the same preparation that a residential move calls for.

By having a strategic plan and staying organized throughout the entire process, you can guarantee to make your corporate moving experience a positive one. Here are fast packing tips to think about during your next corporate relocation from our St. Louis Corporate movers.

Pack Strategically

With a corporate move coming up, you may find that you won’t have a lot of time to pack up your entire house before starting a new job in another city. You should plan to pack an essentials box that includes items you will need on day one. When you arrive in your new home, you won’t have to search through all your items to find what you are looking for once the moving truck has unloaded all boxes. You will also be able to start to focus on transitioning into your new job right away. It’s important to stay organized with packing checklists to save you from stress when it comes to unpacking. Don’t forget to use labels! Try packing tips like throwing away or donating most items, so your items are easier to pack up, and unpack. Make sure to use our packing tips, like keeping all your clothes on hangers and tying trash bags around 15-20 hangers at a time for easy transit.
