The Great Escape


#prepareforyourmove #nouvelleview

My mother still loves to tell the story about the elaborate plan I had to run away with my two girlfriends when I was 8 years old.  We were determined to take my fabulous blue and yellow striped raft down a nearby lake and float way onto new horizons.

What my mother found most entertaining was my “Great Escape Checklist” that she found in my bedroom.

The list consisted of the following:

  • Blow-up raft with oars
  • Air Pump
  • Clothing for a few days
  • Bathing suit
  • Towel
  • Plastic Baggies
  • Flashlight
  • Chocolate Pop Tarts (essential)
  • Watermelon
  • Pen, paper, and a bottle to create a message in a bottle.

Unfortunately, our voyage did not last very long.  Shortly after we set off into the sunset, our vessel started to deflate. There was a slow leak in the raft and we started to sink, along with our personal belongings. Good Times.

Not to worry, as the primary moving consultant for NouvelleView, my packing lists have become much more logical and I understand how proper planning and preparation is essential for any relocation. I am also well equipped to handle any unexpected events that might occur during the process.

Some important pre-move steps our staff takes for our clients:

Declutter and Organize – We break down all of our client’s belongings by category in a concise manner. Once the fate of each item has been determined, we manage everything; whether it needs to be discarded, donated, sold, or packed up for the big move.

Take Inventory- we photograph and document everything-including specs, current condition, and location of all possessions. A home inventory will not only help our client assess the actual size of their forthcoming move, but also provide peace of mind by knowing we acquire a digital inventory for future reference.

Create a Timeline- during the consultation we determine how long it will take to accomplish the necessary pre-move tasks. Without the proper time, a client will not be able to adequately assess the value of their possessions and correctly determine their destinations.

Hire Quality Movers- We are extremely selective about the moving companies we will work with during any relocation. We manage a handful of seasoned professionals that we trust and know we can stand behind.

From blow-up rafts ( without holes) to your most valuable treasures, NouvelleView can manage every detail and plan your great escape!
