Go on a Day-Trip. Especially if you are living near a lake or campgrounds, plan a day trip to enjoy nature. Who’s to say that you have to go on a weeklong vacation to enjoy the hot summer sun and fresh air? Simply jump into your car, grab some friends, and go on an adventure!

 

Have a Bonfire. You aren’t a college kid if you haven’t been to a bonfire party. In case you haven’t, make sure to have a bonfire with your friends on a little get together.

 

Visit a National Park. This might not sound as a fun activity, but visiting a national park, a national zoo or even a museum, can be an educational and fun experience. Make sure to try it out this summer with a few of your friends.

 

Attend a Summer Festival. Okay, you probably have this on your checklist already, but we have to say it! One of the best summertime activities for college students is attending a summer festival.

 


To prepare for your packing, you should first declutter your home. Not only will this make the packing process easier, but it will make the unpacking process quicker as well. Having your home ready for packing means that you’ll ultimately be able to save time. What’s more, you’ll ensure that you won’t forget anything of importance in the hassle of packing. Here are a few great decluttering tips from our packing experts:

 
1. Prepare Decluttering Supplies

Before you start with the decluttering, make sure that you have a few decluttering supplies by your side – garbage bags, labels, boxes.

2. Declutter One Room at a Time

According to our packing product experts, the best way to go about decluttering your home is doing so one room at a time. That way, you’ll not only be able to organize your items better, but you’ll also be able to allocate your time, focus and energy just the right way.

3. Declutter Your Bathroom First

The first room you should start with is your bathroom. Quick and easy to declutter, the bathroom is also the most tedious to do. That’s why you should first start with it. What’s more, that way you’ll ensure you won’t get all nostalgic looking at old photos, even before beginning to declutter.

4. Set Your Eyes Towards Your New Home

While decluttering you’ll come about a lot of items from your past. Make sure to avoid nostalgia and rather focus on all the positive emotions that come with packing. Ask yourself if you’ve used the item within the last year. If not, throw it out.

 

 

Once you’ve decluttered, consider using All My Sons packing products in Kansas City to make your transition quick and seamless.

 


If you’re a homeowner, “going green” poses many benefits. You will not only be able to enjoy the comfort of knowing that you are doing your part to save the plant, but you’ll also be able to save up some cash from energy savings.With that in mind, our packing service experts at All My Sons of Kansas City have decided to share a few tips on what you can do this summer to make your home a little bit greener. Without further adieu, let’s get started!
1. Change Your HVAC Filters

If the HVAC filters of your air conditioning unit haven’t been changed in a long time, now is the time to do so. Going for MERV filters, you’ll be able to go just a tiny bit greener.

2. Install e-Glass Windows

If changing your air-conditioning filter seems like too small of a change, try installing e-Glass windows. These windows are used to control the heat transfer, ultimately insulating your home from the hot summer sun.

3. Switch Your Light Bulbs

If you haven’t already, make sure that you switch the light bulbs in your home. Fluorescent bulbs use as much as 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and last eight to ten times longer.

4. Install Environmentally Friendly Cabinets

If you weren’t aware, the cabinets in your home emit vikatuke organic compounds, similarly to VOC Paints. That’s why you should switch them up. Go for environmentally friendly cabinets instead. Known as Greenguard Environmental Cabinets, green cabinets are known for their low chemical emission.


If you are a basketball person, you probably have a hoop in your backyard. Just because you’re moving houses doesn’t mean you must say goodbye to your old friend just yet. The packing experts at All My Sons Moving & Storage have created this helpful guide, and have some great tips and packing products in Kansas City to help you move your basketball hoop safely. Let’s get you shooting the ball towards your new home.

 
1. Check the Anchoring of your Basketball Hoop

Basketball Hoops come in all shapes and sizes. To be able to properly dismantle it, make sure that you understand how it is anchored. Usually, all you must do is move the rocks that hold the base of your hoop. However, some hoops are cemented into the ground. If this is the case, dig around the base. If the pole starts budging in about half an hour of digging, you’d be good to go. If not, you might need to rent a track loader to help you dig even deeper.

 
2. Break the Pole Down

Take out your gear box and start breaking your basketball hoop down. Start by taking the pole, the backboard, and the rim. Next, break down the adjustment mechanisms and the extension arm. Finally, remove the base from the pole.

 
3. Pack it Up and Transport to your New Home

The parts to a basketball hoop could be difficult to pack. Fortunately, All My Sons offers packing products in Kansas City that can work perfectly with any size or shaped item. The last step is transporting your hoop to your new home.

History of the Overland Park Farmers Market

The Overland Park farmers market is filled with 30 years of history. The market was originally started to showcase community produce and it slowly evolved into a place for thelocals to show their pride! It’s a great place for families and people of all ages, and the number one recommended place according to local movers in Overland Park!

The festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. and end around 9:00 p.m.

The event is filled with food, drinks, music and a good time for all. If you are moving to Overland Park this spring, then you’re in for a whole summer of fun activities.

Tips for Third Friday Event Newcomers

Overland Park movers have a few tips to ensure that you get the most out of your time at the third Friday’s event.

All My Sons Moving & Storage is more than just an Overland Park moving company, we are a family business that understands the importance of honesty. We believe that it’s important for everyone who is moving to be completely informed and protected when you move to Overland Park, Kansas, which is why we have created this short list of three things that Overland Park moving companies must have in order to ensure they are the right moving company for you.

License and Insurance

Though it sounds like something a police officer will say after pulling you over, it’s essential that you ask each of the Overland Park moving companies you are considering for their license and insurance information so you can check it online. Moving companies who move items across state lines must have a Department of Transportation (DOT) number. Also, no Overland Park moving company without moving insurance should even be considered! Protect yourself first.

Bill of Lading

A bill of lading is an official, legal document that lists all the goods that a shipper (you the mover) and the carrier of goods (the moving company) have selected. Treat this like a receipt that will account for all the items that the Overland Park movers are taking into their care to transport for you. It is very important that you review the bill of lading from the movers you have hired; make sure that all details and pricing is accurate and what you originally agreed on and close to what you were quoted.

Reputation

Reputation is something that cannot be bought, which makes it one of the most valuable assets to all Overland Park moving companies. Run searches online, check the Better Business Bureau, and ask friends and family for recommendations. Be sure to do your homework and find Overland Park movers that have the reputation to back up their word!


It’s that time of year again; the time of year when everyone from Kansas City to Cleveland and beyond is a little bit Irish; including our Overland Park movers. St Patrick’s Day in Overland Park is set to be another day of memorable, fun filled adventures!

There are props for kids and adults, and enough temporary green spray paint to ensure that everyone’s hair is as green as our great state!

The St Patrick’s Day Parade in Overland Park

Overland Park movers agree that the St Patrick’s Day Parade is the best place to be this Saint Patrick’s Day! The parade starts at 11:00 a.m. and lasts about two hours.
