Tips For Moving Day

moving

Whether you’re moving into a condo, apartment, house, or dorm room, moving day can be an extremely stressful and taxing experience.  There’s so much to do, packing, labeling, hauling, unpacking, there’s a lot of room for error which is why we thought we’d pull together some helpful tips!

  • Be ready to start early!  Moving day will probably feel like one of the longest of your life, but it’s important to get up early and make sure everything is packed and good to go.  You’ll want to make sure everything is ready once the movers or family and friends arrive.
  • Map out your route and make sure that you, as well as any movers know how to get there all well.  You’ll also want to make sure there’s room for everyone to park and unload.
  • If possible, try and pre-clean your home before you move in.  That way everything will be ready to use such as the shower, toilet, etc.  You’ll still have to do some cleaning after you unpack everything, there’s sure to be a bit of a mess but at least you’ll already have a head start!
  • Enlist the help of friends and family if possible.  Not only will this save money, but it may also make the process more fun! Just make sure you have everyone’s tasks figured out so the process can be as seamless as possible, and that you’re ready to go as soon as they arrive!
  • Arrange for a charity organization to come pick up any goods you’re willing to donate about a week or two before the move.  Many charities will haul away furniture and other items free of charge as long as they have use for them.
  • Minimize the use of cardboard boxes by packing with items you already have such as suitcases, duffel bags, backpacks, etc.
  • Avoid packing in trash bags, they could be mistaken for trash and accidentally thrown out, and if you’re using a moving service some movers have rules against moving belongings in trash bags.
  • When labeling boxes, label which room they’re going to go in to make unpacking easier.  You’ll know where to put them when you initially bring them in, and can unpack by room, which may help the whole process seem less overwhelming.  You’ll also want to make sure you label boxes on the side instead of on top, that way you can still read them if the boxes are stacked.
  • Pack all of your valuables such as jewelry and important paperwork in a separate bag and bring them with you.  If you’re using a moving service or even getting help from friends, you won’t want to entrust those things to anyone but yourself.
  • Take an inventory of boxes and their contents, especially if you’re using a moving company.  It’ll come in handy if something goes missing.
  • Pack an overnight bag with all of the necessities you will need easy access to, such as toiletries, phone chargers, and an extra change of clothes.  You won’t want to have to dig through boxes to try and find your toothbrush after a long day of moving.
  • If you’re renting, take pictures of your cleaned out apartment when moving in and when moving out, this will make it much easier when trying to get your security deposit back and when you’re dealing with landlords who want to charge you for cleaning and repair fees that may be totally unnecessary.
  • If you have young children or pets, arrange for a family member or babysitter to watch them during moving day, otherwise they will more than likely get in the way and be an additional stress factor.
  • Make sure your utilities are in order and have been set up.  You’ll want your gas, electricity, and water to be working when you move in.
  • Reward your movers!  After a long day of hauling boxes and furniture, your movers are bound to be tired, and whether they’re hired or friends and family, it’s a nice gesture to have some food and drinks available.
  • Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that your new home and all of your property is properly insured, and that’s where we come in!  Whether you’re renting or own a home, we can help you find the policy that’s right for you, so call us today for a free quote!

We know moving will be stressful no matter how many tips you read, but hopefully these will help to minimize that and will make the day run a little bit more smoothly!

Lightning Safety Tips

lightning

Hurricane season is here, and it seems like we’ve been having thunder and lightning storms every week.  While these storms can sometimes be fun to watch, they can also be extremely dangerous.  People are injured by lightning every year, but these simple tips will ensure that you stay safe!

  • It’s important to stay alert and aware of local weather forecasts, whether you’re staying local or going somewhere on vacation, make sure you look up local weather forecasts so you can avoid being outside if a thunder and lightning storm is expected.
  • It is not safe to be outside during a thunder and lightning storm.  Seek shelter immediately, being indoors is the best option but if not stay inside an enclosed metal vehicle.  Even if it is not raining, as soon as you hear thunder or see lightning, immediately stop your activities and head inside.
  • Once you’re inside, stay off porches, away from windows and doors, avoid appliances, sinks, toilets, showers, and tubs.  Lightning can flow through these objects and strike a person.
  • Avoid using corded telephones.  If telephone wires are struck the charge could flow to the phone, Cordless phones and cell phones are still safe to use though.
  • If you are outside and cannot seek shelter, stay away from trees and other tall objects.  If these are struck and fall over, you could be seriously injured.  Avoid high places such as hills, and get to the lowest spot possible.  Crouch down with your feet close together, keep your hands and knees off the ground and never lie down.
  • If you are swimming or boating, get to land immediately and take shelter.  If you are on a boat and cannot get to land, get below deck if possible or crouch as low as you possibly can.
  • Stay away from objects that conduct electricity such as power lines and metal fences.
  • Stay inside for at least 30 minutes after you hear the last boom of thunder just to be sure the storm has completely passed.
  • If someone nearby is struck by lightning, call 911 immediately and if the person is unconscious, begin CPR if you are qualified.  People struck by lightning do not carry an electric charge so it is perfectly safe to assist them.

Although thunder and lightning storms can happen year-round, hurricane season is the busiest season for these storms, and by keeping these tips in mind, you will greatly reduce your risk of being struck by lightning.

Tips To Stay Cool In The Summer Heat

fan

It’s that time of year when the sun is shining and temperatures are on the rise.  Being outside can not only be unpleasant, it can also be dangerous if you’re not careful as heat exhaustion and heat stroke are real dangers.  Here are some tips that will keep you staying cool as a cucumber, some of them may be reminders but they’re still important to keep in mind!

  • Drink plenty of water.  It’s important to stay hydrated during the warmer months because when your body is hot it dehydrates more quickly.  Try to keep a water bottle on you at all times and if you’re going outside, put the water in the freezer first and as the ice melts you’ll still have cold water.
  • Dress appropriately.  Dark colors draw sunlight to you, so try and wear lighter colors if you’re going to be outside during peak heat hours.  It’s also a good idea to opt for cotton clothing because it’s lighter and more breathable than other fabrics such as silk or polyester.
  • Get a fan.  Even if your house has air conditioning, a fan can help circulate the cool air and keep the temperature down.  If you’re going outside consider getting a small portable fan to bring with you, it will keep you cool in crowded spaces and you may even want to consider getting a portable fan with a spray bottle attached to it, so you can give yourself a quick spray of water to cool off.
  • Stay shaded.  This is hard to do if you have to be outside, but try to either wear a hat to cover your head and neck or pull your collar up.  If you’re wearing a hat, you can also pour some cold water in it and then put it back on your head for a quick cool down.
  • Take advantage of public air conditioning.  If you don’t have air conditioning in your home, make plans to go to public places with AC like the mall, a restaurant, or the movies.  You could also always ask a friend who has air conditioning if you can crash at their place for a bit until it cools down.
  • Avoid hot and heavy foods.  These will make you feel hot and slow you down, it’s better to opt for cooler, lighter foods like fruit, vegetables, or popsicles.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol.  These will speed up the process of dehydration.
  • Don’t over do it with exercising.  If you plan on working out, try to do it indoors or in the early morning or evening, that way you’ll avoid the hottest times of day.  You may want to also cut down the time and or intensity of your workout.
  • Take cold showers.  These will help cool you down quickly and stay cool for a while, if this isn’t an option though you can always submerge your feet in a bucket of cool water or run your wrists under cold water for a few seconds.  Most of the heat from your body comes from those areas so keeping them cool will cool down the rest of your body.
  • Limit sun exposure.  This is the easiest way to stay cool, by avoiding direct sunlight, especially during the hours of 10 AM until 6 PM, when the sun is at its hottest.

With these tips, it’ll be easy to beat the heat and stay nice and cool this summer!

Tips To Deter Burglars From Your Home

DSC01558

Home invasion is a very real danger and can put both your home and family at risk.  There are certain things burglars look for when choosing a house to break in to, but luckily there are precautions that you can take to deter burglars from targeting your home.

  • Invest in an alarm system.  They can monitor your home 24/7 and there’s no better feeling than knowing you and your family are safe.  At the very least find an alarm company sign to put up on your lawn, even if you do not have an actual alarm system, the sign may be enough to ward off any potential burglars and convince them that your home is not an easy target.
  • Lock all doors and windows.  This should go without saying, but people leave doors and windows unlocked all the time because they think they live in a safe neighborhood.  Regardless of how safe your neighborhood may be, you still need to lock your doors and windows every night and whenever you leave the house.  Leaving them unlocked makes your home a very easy target, if thieves try to break in and your doors are locked, they’re most likely going to move on.
  • Use light sensors.  These are a huge deterrent for burglars because they don’t want to have a light shining down on them and risk being seen.  Having light sensors at all doors and even along walkways is a great defense against these prowlers.
  • Secure your garage.  Garage doors without windows are ideal, but if you have a garage with windows, make sure they are covered with newspaper.  You don’t want burglars to be able to tell whether you’re home or not or see any valuables you may have inside.
  • Keep valuables out of sight.  Having valuables outside such as bikes, or expensive items such as a big screen TV or expensive computer visible through the window makes your home a target.  Take all toys inside or put them in the garage, and consider rearranging expensive items so they are not visible through the windows, or at least make sure the blinds are drawn.
  • Make it seem like you’re home.  Did you know that break-ins are most common during the day when people are at work?  Leave on a light or two and maybe even the TV so it appears as if someone is home even if you’re not.
  • Don’t leave a spare key outside.  Burglars know typical hiding spots such as under the mat or under a flower pot, and even if you think you’ve put the key in a secure spot, burglars often case areas they are interested in and may see you retrieve it.  Your best bet is to give a spare key to a trusted neighbor or friend who lives near by.
  • Trim trees and shrubs.  Tall trees or thick shrubs are perfect spots for burglars to hide without being seen.  Keep them trimmed so that it’s not easy for them to hide behind, and try to leave walkways and driveways free of shrubs and trees so that they are completely visible and you can see anyone who approaches.
  • Get to know your neighbors.  If you’re friendly with your neighbors, they may be more likely to notice any unfamiliar visitors outside.  Strangers will stick out to them and if they notice anything suspicious, they can alert you or the police.

These tips can make all the difference when it comes to protecting your home.  These easy adjustments can save you a lot of potential trouble and will set your mind at ease so keep them in mind and stay alert!

Swimming Safety Tips

swimming 4

Who doesn’t love taking a swim on a hot summer day?  Whether you’re at the pool, the beach, or a lake, fun is sure to be had, but it can quickly turn into a dangerous situation if parents and children don’t know proper swimming safety.  We’ve listed a few tips below that everyone should keep in mind whether they’re in or around the water.

  • The best thing to do for your family when it comes to water safety is to make sure that everyone knows how to swim and respects the water.  Signing children up for swimming classes at a young age will ensure that they learn proper swimming techniques and learn water safety at a young age.
  • Teach children to always ask for permission before going in the water.  You should always know when they’re swimming so that you can be there to supervise.
  • Make sure swimmers are ALWAYS supervised.  Children should never be left alone in the water for any reason, and whether it’s by you, another adult, or a lifeguard, there should always be someone nearby to jump into action if they’re needed.
  • Even if there is supervision, children should not swim alone.  Make sure they use the “buddy system” and have a friend with them at all times, but do not trust their safety to another child alone, the buddy system should be used in addition to adult supervision.
  •  Children that are still learning to swim should always wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket when in or around water.
  • There should always be an adult in the water with non-swimmers, and children should always be within an arms reach of them.
  • Make sure all pools are completely enclosed by fences that are at least five feet tall.  The gates should be self-closing and self-latching, and there should not be anything nearby for children to climb on that can enable them to climb over the fence, such as outdoor furniture, toys, etc.
  • Always keep rescue equipment nearby, such as a life preserver, rope, or solid pole.  In an emergency you don’t want to be searching for something to use, it’s best to make sure they are always in the same place and immediately put back when not in use.  It’s also a good idea to keep a first kit nearby for minor cuts and bumps.
  • Make sure children understand not to run, push, or horse around near water.  Not only can they endanger themselves, they can also cause harm to others if they were to slip and fall.
  • If you’re swimming in open water, only swim in approved areas.  Check the depth of the water, and make sure there isn’t an undertow, which can be extremely dangerous and potentially fatal for even the most experienced swimmers.
  • If you’re swimming at a public place, such as a beach or public pool, use a brightly colored towel or umbrella so that children can easily spot you.
  • If your child goes missing, check the water first.  If they are struggling in the water, seconds can make all the difference in this life or death situation.
  • In case of an emergency, make sure there is always a phone and emergency numbers nearby.
  • It’s a good idea for all parents, but especially those that own a pool to be trained in CPR.
  • Avoid drinks with alcohol in them when you’re swimming yourself or supervising others.
  • Make sure that children take breaks from swimming to rehydrate and reapply sunscreen.

With these tips, you and your family will be having fun in the sun and water all summer long!

Safety Tips For Hurricane Preparedness Week

hurricane

It’s National Hurricane Preparedness Week!  Hurricane season officially begins on June 1st and ends November 30th, and as we’ve seen over the past few years, hurricanes are a very real danger even in New England.  It’s important for all families to have a plan of action should a hurricane hit, so we’ve listed some important safety tips that everyone should know.

  • Know the difference between a “Hurricane Watch” and a “Hurricane Warning”.  A hurricane watch will be issued when a potential threat is less than 48 hours away, at this point you’ll want to review your emergency procedures.  A hurricane warning is issued when the threat is less than 36 hours away and that’s when you will want to begin your preparations.
  • It is very important to know where to go in case of an evacuation in your area.  Know the evacuation routes you will need to take if an evacuation order is issued.  Make sure you are listening to the news or a radio for the most updated information, as storms progress evacuation routes may close.
  • If you do need to evacuate, make sure you have a plan for your whole family, including pets! Pets are members of the family and if it’s not safe for you to stay in your home, it’s not safe for them either.
  • Know how to turn off utilities such as gas and water if you have to.
  • Fill up sinks and bath tubs with water for sanitary purposes, such as cleaning.
  • Makes sure you have prepared emergency kits for your car and home, they should include enough bottled food and water to last your entire family 3 days, a flashlight, radio, batteries, important documents, first aid kit, road maps, and a full tank of gas.
  • If you live in a mobile home or do not live on higher-ground, find the nearest shelter to go to.
  • If a storm is coming, board up your windows with plywood if you don’t have permanent storm shutters.  Close and brace any storm doors you may have.  Take your outdoor decorations, furniture, trash cans, and anything else that’s not tied down inside.
  • Once the storm begins, take refuge on the bottom floor of your home, and stay away from windows and doors.
  •   If there is a lull in the storm that may be the eye, it will pick up again so make sure you have a radio to listen to for the most updated information.  Wait until you hear from officials that the storm has ended before going outside.
  • Stay alert even after the storm has ended, there may be subsequent flooding that can still cause damage.
  • If you must drive, avoid low-lying areas, flooded roads and bridges.  You’ll also want to look out for downed electrical wires, weakened walls, bridges, and sidewalks.

Hurricanes are extremely dangerous and can result in severe damage to property, or even death if you’re not cautious.  Even if you are not located on the coast, a hurricane can still affect you and cause severe damage, so keep these tips in mind and stay safe this hurricane season!

Emergency Preparedness For Pets

pet evacuation

Hurricane season is coming our way, but emergencies can happen at any time of year, and it’s best to be prepared for them.  Every family should have a plan should disaster strike, and that plan should also include your furry friends!  To help you and your pets be prepared for anything, we’ve listed some tips to keep in mind should disaster strike.

  • Make an emergency kit for your pet.  Make sure it is easily accessible and travel-ready if you need to move quickly.  Your kit should include leashes, harnesses, carriers, and anything else you need to safely and securely transport your pet.
  • You also want to make sure you have a first aid kit, any medication your pet needs, 7 days worth of food and clean water, bowls, and kitty litter/box for cats.
  • If you have room and can easily carry them, bring toys and a bed so that your pet can have some comforts of home, times of disaster can be as frightening for them as it is for you.
  • Make sure your pet’s ID tags are up to date with your contact information.  It’s also a good idea to list your contact info on any pet carriers you may have, and consider a microchip for your pet if it doesn’t have one already.
  • Know where to bring your pet.  Unfortunately, most emergency disaster shelters are not permitted to take pets, due to safety and health regulations, so you’ll want to know where you and your pets can seek shelter in case of an evacuation.  If it’s not safe for you to stay behind, it’s not safe for your pets either!
  • Ask friends or family outside of the disaster area if they would be able to shelter you and your pets.
  • If that’s not an option, call motels and hotels outside of your area and see if they are pet friendly, if so ask about any type of restrictions they may have when it comes to size or number of pets.  Even if some hotels aren’t pet friendly, they may make an exception during an emergency.
  • You can also ask boarding facilities, vet offices, and animal shelters if they are able to care for pets during an emergency.  Once you know what your options are, keep a list of them along with phone numbers and email addresses with your emergency kit.
  • Make sure you have all important documents such as medical records stored in a waterproof container.  You should also keep a list of any and all medications, special routines, and important phone numbers on hand.
  • It’s also a good idea to keep recent photos of your pet on hand should they get separated from you during a crisis and you need to create lost posters.

With these tips, you and your furry friends will be prepared for anything!  Although we always hope that we won’t be nearby when disaster strikes, it’s good to be ready just in case.  We always hope for the best, but need to be prepared for the worst!

Get Your Yard Ready For Spring

garden

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house and car, it’s also for your yard too!  The weather will soon be warm enough to make being outdoors enjoyable again.  That means it’s time to get your yard ready!  We know you’ll want to have your yard looking ship shape for barbeques, bonfires, and any other parties you may have planned, so we’ve listed these tips to make the process easier.

  • Do a walk through.  It’s a good idea to check out your yard after the long winter we’ve just had.  Look for any branches that need to be cut and take a general survey of any work that needs to be done so you know exactly what areas you need to focus on.
  • Break out the rake.  After a walk through you need to clear out all of the debris that may have accumulated over winter, and a rake is the best way to do that.  Once you’ve cleared out all of the leaves, twigs, and other debris, you’ll be ready to get started!
  • Re-seed the lawn.  If you find any bare patches you’ll want to fill those in so your lawn is in tip-top shape.  First you need to loosen and level the soil before you spread grass seed and fertilizer over the area.  Tap the soil down to secure the seeds and make sure to water it.
  • Mulch.  Applying a layer of mulch to the base of trees, shrubs, plants, and flowers will not only make your yard look better, it also deters weeds and maintains soil moisture.  Killing two birds with one stone!
  • Fertilize.  If you want your plants to be looking their best, fertilizer is a must.  It provides added nutrients to plants that they wouldn’t get from soil alone.
  • Prune.  Pruning existing plants and trees will prevent them from being smothered and allow them to grow to their full potential without dead limbs getting in their way.  Plus plants look much better once you’ve gotten rid of the dead stuff from last year.
  • Compost.  Creating a compost pile is easy and has many benefits including being used as fertilizer.  You can dump leaves, cuttings, dead foliage, old mulch, and even old produce that you’re not going to eat into a compost pile.  Make sure you aerate it every two weeks and keep it moist.
  • Update fences.  If you have wooden fences you’ll want to replace any rotted wood or wobbly fence posts and sand and paint any areas that need to be touched up.  If you have pets, make sure you look for any holes or areas that they could dig out under and get that taken care of ASAP.
  • Get ready to plant.  One thing you need to do before you start planting is to test the pH of the soil.  Soil test kits are available at home improvement stores and they’re important because plants grown in the proper pH are much healthier and more vibrant.  Different plants require different pH levels so you’ll want to do your research before you actually begin to plant.  It’s also a good idea to examine the sunlight patterns in your yard so you can choose a spot where your plants will be getting enough light.
  • Plant. Once you’ve cleaned up everything it’s time for the fun part!  Pick out the plants that you want and soak the soil with water before you plant them.  If you’re planting container plants, make sure you loosen the roots so that they can spread out more easily.

If you keep these tips in mind, your yard will be looking as beautiful as ever, so get out there and get to gardening!

Join Us In Supporting A Great Cause!

final featured image

We are very excited to announce that we will be a Milestone Sponsor in this year’s Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) signature walk event!  “Walk Like MADD” is a non-competitive, family and pet friendly 5K Walk and also a MADD Dash, certified 5K Run which seek to raise awareness and funds for MADD.  This organization has a simple mission; they seek to stop drunk driving, support the victims of it, and prevent underage drinking.

Drunk driving not only risks the life of the driver and any passengers in their car, it also risks the lives of everyone else on the road.  The scary thing about that is that drunk driving and underage drinking are more common than you would think.  For example, did you know:

  •  If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in the past year had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S.
  • On average, one in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
  • Every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.
  • Every day in America, 30 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes.
  • Teen alcohol use kills about 6,000 people each year, more than all illegal drugs combined.
  • An average drunk driver has driven drunk 87 times before a first arrest.
  • One in three 8th graders has tried alcohol.
  • Drunk driving remains the primary cause of deaths on our highway.

If these statistics surprised you as much as they surprised us, you’ll understand why Mothers Against Drunk Driving is such a worthy cause to support.  Victims of drunk driving are more common than you think, they could be your neighbor down the street, a friend’s parent, or perhaps someone in your own family or group of friends.

We at MassDrive are proud to sponsor MADD’s event this year because their mission of keeping families and communities safe is one that we support as well.  We want everyone to drive responsibly, and if you plan on drinking alcohol make sure that you have a designated driver to get you home safely.  That’s a mission we can all support right?  If you want to join this year’s event, there are a few ways you can do it.  You can either register to walk, donate to MADD’s team, or volunteer!

The walk will take place on Sunday, April 26th at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield.  Registration begins at 10 AM and the opening ceremony will take place at 10:45 after a warm-up with Fitness Together.  Runners will take off at 11 AM followed by the walkers, and everyone is invited to join in on the fun and entertainment taking place after the 5K.
