Premire Baton Rouge Moving Company – 225-292-2424

Did you procrastinate or decide to make a last-minute move? Don’t worry, our Baton Rouge movers are here to help make sure your move is a success! We know that moving is stressful, especially when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare. Here are some tips on how to pull off a local move in one weekend.
First, go through all your belongings and clean out what you no longer want or need. Clean up and go through each room in your house to pull out items you are willing to part with. If you borrowed items from friends and family, have them pick up the items before you finish packing. Donate your items you don’t need to a local Goodwill or Salvation Army. You can get a tax credit and you also will save money by having less items to pack and move.

Use items you have in your house as packing supplies. Don’t go out and spend tons of money and time looking for packing supplies when you have a lot of what you need already in your home. Trash bags can make perfect wardrobe boxes for your hanging clothes. Extra blankets and sweatshirts can go in boxes with fragile items to keep them from bouncing and breaking during your move. Suitcases can be used to pack heavy items that you’d rather roll than carry. Take advantage of all the items in your home to save time and money during your move.

Pulling off a local moving in one weekend takes a lot of creativity. Declutter, donate items and be creative about the items you use. And make sure you get help, whether you reach out to friends and family or hire our Baton Rouge moving team at All My Sons Moving & Storage. We are ready to help you get your local move done quickly and easily.

 

 


Corporate moving can be an expensive process, especially when you are moving an entire business. Many companies are eligible for a moving tax right off and can justify moving expenses. Employees have many regulations they must jump through when they relocate for job related reasons. Our Baton Rouge movers can help you learn what you can deduct and what you can’t.
If you are a corporation or limited liability corporation that is relocating, you can deduct the full cost of your move from company taxes. You can even deduct brokerage commissions you paid to find your new office space. If you are a sole proprietorship or partnership, you must meet two criteria to deduct your moving expenses. First, you must move at least 50 miles from your current location and you must work at least 39 weeks in your new office during the year after you make the move.

Companies can pay any employee moving expenses that it wants to. The company can deduct those payments from company income. The employee that is relocating cannot deduct any moving expenses that were paid for by the company. Employees must abide by the 50 miles and 39 weeks rule as well, but they have limits on what can be deducted at the end of the moving process.

The following moving expenses are deductible: cost of packing and transporting your belongings (whether you move on your own or hire movers), costs to connect or disconnect utilities, cost of transporting vehicles and pets, and cost of storing your belongings for no more than 30 consecutive days.

Remember you can always consult your tax professional to ensure you aren’t missing valuable moving tax write off opportunities. Take advantage of the deductions that your company and your employees can take on their taxes.

 

 


Our Baton Rouge Movers know that moving can be expensive. The process of packing up all your belongings and moving them across town or across the country adds up and can make a major dent in your bank account. There are several things you can do to ensure that you find the most affordable mover rate with the Baton Rouge mover you choose.
Make sure you start early to make sure that your preferred date is available. You want to give yourself enough time to contact multiple moving companies for quotes and estimates. You may want to go ahead and schedule site visits with several movers if there is no fee to get your quote and compare the service you receive. Your friends and family are a great source of information. Ask around and see who has moved recently in your area and if they have a recommendation. Your friend may have used a company you didn’t come across in your search.

Research the companies that you get from recommendations and that you come across in your search and read reviews from others. You should always use movers with three stars or above but do your research. Look for articles about the company, check their social media, and other due diligence on the company to make sure that you will get quality service and the price you are quoted is what you will pay.

When you are on the phone with a Baton Rouge mover, ask the right questions. Find out what they won’t move, if they use subcontractors or have their own staff, what their payment process is, liability coverage, estimated time for the move, if you can pack yourself, what services are included in their quote and more.

If you are looking for the most affordable mover rate, it is important you do significant research to find a moving company that will offer quality service at an affordable price. Don’t get fooled by other local Baton Rouge movers- give yourself enough time to prepare for your move, do your research and you’re sure to find a quality mover to get the job done!

 

 


According to a recent study down by RealtyTrac, foreclosure rates in Baton Rouge occur with 1 in every 2730 housing units. In September 2017, a little more than half of the foreclosed homes in Louisiana were in auction, while a little under 25% were bank owned. No one wants to be involved with a foreclosure on their property, but they do offer a unique opportunity for buyers to purchase a home or property at a quality price.
How do you find houses up for foreclosure in Baton Rouge? The best place to start would be at a foreclosure auction. Sites like RealtyTrac and Auction.com allow you to check out different properties, their status and the date and time of the auction. Just make sure to check with your local East Baton Rouge County office to find out how the sales are handled and ask about any necessary paperwork needed.

Another way to find foreclosures is to look at those homes that were seized by the bank. Most banks do not sell homes directly to investors or home buyers, but go through a real estate agent or company. Sites like Zillow, ForeclosureListings.com, Redfin, Foreclosure.com and more allow you to check out local properties in the Baton Rouge area. But remember to still contact the county office to ensure you know how to properly purchase a foreclosed home.

There are many ways to find houses up for foreclosure in Baton Rouge. Our local Baton Rouge movers hope that you will find the home for you- and if you need help relocating, remember to give us a call!

 

 


Everyone has a different take on packing for a move. Some people love it, and some…not so much. However, it doesn’t matter if you love it or hate it, what really counts is the quality of the supplies you use. Anytime you use professional Baton Rouge movers for your packing needs, the movers will arrive at your home with high quality packing supplies, ready and anxious to get you settled into your new home.

For a DIY mover, the packing products used may vary. In fact, there are some movers who would prefer not to use single-use packing materials such as cardboard moving boxes and packing peanuts. Here are some examples of reusable packing supplies that can be used in any move.


Plastic Containers

As an alternative to cardboard boxes, plastic containers can be used in a move. These can be found in most homes and are often sturdier than cardboard boxes. These can be reused for storage upon arriving at the new home as well. Consider using these to pack appliances and other light/medium weight items.

 

Bungee Cords/Rope

These packing materials aren’t used in every move, but they are perfect for securing furniture in the moving truck. After the move, they are useful for several purposes.

 

Scissors

Rarely does a home not need a pair of scissors in it. Scissors are ideal to have when moving, because they allow the mover to cut tape off cardboard boxes among other things. Whenever you finish up a move, store the scissors somewhere safe and bring them whenever you feel the need to cut something else.

One of the most unique challenges of moving to Baton Rouge is figuring out how to move a fish tank to your new home. Some fish aquariums can be quite large and fragile, making it a tricky task to complete. Even figuring out what packing supplies in Baton Rouge to use to get it done can be tough. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve outlined steps to take and which packing products for moving fish you need to be aware of.

 

Preparing your fish and the tank for the move

 

You will want to change about 1/5 of the water every day for a week before the move-in day. Additionally, try not to feed them the day before moving. This will help to keep the fish happy, clean, and comfortable until you’re able to establish their home again.

Most of the packing products for moving fish are going to be in your home already. Plastic sandwich bags are perfect for this, depending on the size of your fish. You’ll want to fill the bags 2/3 of the way with some of the water from the fish tank and then transfer your fish individually to each bag. Make sure the bag has enough air for your fish as well.

If your fish tank or aquarium has plants, you’ll want to put them in large, water filled bags and put them in a safe place for transport. Once again, it’s best to use water from the tank so that the environment is consistent once the fish and the tank are established in the new home. Pack pumps, heaters, and other accessories like you would with any other fragile item into cardboard moving boxes, secured with bubble wrap and/or packing peanuts. The same process applies to your empty fish tank/aquarium. Make sure there are no unattached items inside that could cause damage during transport.

While different people have different reasons for hiring a moving company in Baton Rouge, there are several common themes and benefits of hiring local movers in Baton Rouge.

Movers in Baton Rouge offer better organization and packing

If you have any experience with moving, you are aware of how time consuming it can be to get things in order. It’s not that easy to do either. When you hire local movers in Baton Rouge, you do so because you know that they’re going to get the job done better than you could do yourself. The idea of hiring professional Baton Rouge movers is that they will work with a level of speed and accuracy that is hard to match.

All My Sons Baton Rouge movers are equipped to handle any job

Using the correct moving and packing supplies makes the entire moving process that much easier to complete. In fact, not having the proper packing products will slow things down tremendously. When you book moving and packing services, you can expect professionals to show up with every tool needed to get the job done. High quality cardboard boxes for packing, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap to secure the items inside those boxes, and moving dollies to quickly load those boxes for transport are some of the equipment at a professional mover’s disposal.

The moment you decide to move into a new home, you need to have a moving plan in place. Part of that is hiring a professional moving and packing service to make sure that you can get to where you need to go without worry. The experience and expertise they provide will ensure that relocating to a new home goes smoothly and leave you stress-free.

If you’re anything like most pet owners, you want to make sure that your pets are happy, safe, and comfortable always. After all, they are members of the family and you love them! Moving to a new home is just as much of an adjustment on them as it is for you. This is especially true for pets that have grown up in one home. As part of your moving checklist, you will be contacting professional packing services in Baton Rouge way ahead of your move in date to make sure that you’re as stress-free as possible. However, it’s also important to make sure the same goes for your pet. Here are some ideal packing products for pet care that you will need to include in your essentials moving box on moving day.

 

Pet’s Medicine
If you needed an inhaler to breathe, chances are you’re going to make sure to keep it nearby in case of an emergency. It’s important to take the same approach with your pet’s medicine. Before moving, be sure to refill any prescriptions your pet needs for the road, and keep it close by.

 

Pet Comfort Toys
Some dogs and cats tend to have anxiety when traveling in a vehicle. It’s a good idea to include one of their favorite toys in their traveling crate when moving. This will help to keep them calm by providing them with something to focus on besides the moving vehicle.

 

Food and Treats

 

Although it should be a given, don’t forget to pack some food and your pet’s favorite treats on moving day. It’s going to be difficult to unpack your boxes in your new home. Although All My Sons professional packing services in Baton Rouge will happily assist you with this, you want to be sure that you have access to your pet’s supplies as much as possible.

If you’re a new parent either for the first time or all over again, then congratulations from the All My Sons Baton Rouge movers! We know how challenging it can be to go through the process of raising a child. Additionally, we understand the obstacles that come with moving into a new home, let alone doing so with a baby to care for. From obtaining packing supplies, to getting utilities transferred, it’s tough! That’s why we’ve made it easier for you. Below, we’ve outlined the things that you need to know to pack for a move with a newborn child.

 Pack Your Newborn’s Non-Essential Items

Your child’s non-essential items include the toys and clothes that they can live without for a few days. You’ll want to take a small or medium sized cardboard box (obtained at roughly any location that sells packing supplies in Baton Rouge) and pack it up with anything that isn’t critical to your baby’s day to day. Don’t forget to label it. While these are the “non-essential” items, that doesn’t mean that you want to go hunting for them later.

Move on to the Essentials

With every move, you’re going to want to pack an overnight box composed of the most important items that you’ll be needing for the first day or two in your new home. When moving with a baby, you’ll want to pack a separate essentials box for them. As a parent, you know what this includes, but just in case, here are the things you need to pack:

Diapers, pacifier, pajamas, baby’s favorite toy (whatever makes them stop crying,) formula/food, breast feeding equipment, bottles, blanket, baby wipes, medical supplies.

Anytime you need to move with a child, especially a newborn, you need to call All My Sons Baton Rouge movers as soon as possible! Let us take care of the moving and packing, so that you can focus on the more important things.
