Safely Using a Ladder

Safely Using a Ladder

There are 164,000 emergency room visits each year due to ladder-related injuries, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. When moving (or decorating for Christmas this time of year), it is inevitable that you will need to use a ladder. Maybe you are painting your new home, taking down artwork to pack it up, or installing light fixtures…but what you do on the ladder isn’t nearly as important as safely using the ladder.

Cross Country Movers
I recently bought a new comforter set for my bedroom (exciting, I know). After spending way too much time comparing my options, I found the one I liked best and purchased it. But then when I got it home and put it on the bed, it didn’t look anything like I expected. Despite my disappointment, I was able to return it to the store the next day for a full refund.

Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack Moving

November 27th, 2012 - 10:35 AM

If you’re moving long distance and searching for an economical yet easy way to move across the country, Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack is a great comparison. It’s good to note at the get-go that while Budget and U-Pack prices are comparable (for long-distance moves), the services do differ. Budget is a “do-it-yourself” service—you pick it up, load it, drive it, unload it, and return it. U-Pack is a “you pack, we drive” service—U-Pack delivers it, you load it, U-Pack drives it, you unload it, U-Pack picks it up.
