Steps Peasley Moving & Storage is Taking:

  • Company-wide Implementation of all precautionary measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Office staff and moving crews are being monitored daily for symptoms and/or known exposure by management and asked to go home, contact their healthcare provider, and self-quarantine as directed.

  • Office staff and moving crews are receiving daily briefings on precautionary measures and have been directed to follow them on and off the job.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being instructed to maintain appropriate “social distance” of 6 feet minimum between one another, customers, and all other people.

They have been directed to disinfect truck cabs and moving equipment between each move to the best of their ability. These supplies will continue to be replenished as we are able, based on availability from retailers.

Steps We’re Asking Customers To Take Prior To Our Arrival At Your Residence:

  • Please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.
  • Please use disinfectant/cleaner to wipe down commonly touched surfaces, objects, door handles, etc. at your residence.
  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

We are all in this together.  The team at Peasley Moving & Storage is proud to continue offering our wide range of services in accordance with the necessary precautions outlined above. Whether you or your business will be moving down the street, across the country, or around the world, we are here to make the process seamless & safe for you, just as we’ve done for well over a century.

    So, you’ve just decided to leave Idaho and start a new chapter in Texas? Although moving to another state isn’t the simplest thing to do, we’re here to help you overcome any obstacle you could encounter on your way to the Lone Star State. If you keep reading this guide, you will learn everything you need to know about moving from Idaho to Texas and how to go through this process with ease. A simple and swift relocation is guaranteed if you follow the tips we prepared for you.

    The main differences between Idaho and Texas

    Every relocation is different. No matter where you’re moving or how many times you’ve moved before, you will still have to prepare for your upcoming relocation. Sure, Idaho moving companies can help you greatly during this process, but there are some things you will need to do on your own. Don’t be scared because of this. If you prepare yourself well enough, your relocation will be a breeze. That’s why you should do your best and learn about moving from Idaho to Texas as much as you can.

    When it comes to interstate moves, one of the first things you will need to research is the difference between the state you’re currently living in and where you plan to move. By doing this before the move, there will be no unpleasant surprises later. To help you out, we’ve pointed out some similarities and differences between Idaho and Texas that we believe will be of use to you. Here they are.

    • If you’re a fan of warmer temperatures, you’ll like Texas. But beware, temperatures can go up really fast here.
    • Salaries are higher in Texas than in Idaho, but the same goes for the unemployment rate.
    • Home prices are almost identical, they are just a bit higher in Texas.
    • Both Idaho and Texas are perfect for outdoorsy types as they are filled with natural beauties.

    Things you will need to do before moving to Texas

    No matter where you’re planning to move, you’ll need to do your best and organize every step of the process. And no, gathering packing supplies Boise and leaving everything to movers aren’t the only things you will have to do. You will need to take care of some other tasks as well.

    Planning the move

    Do you want to avoid problems during your move? Then, you need to plan every step of it. And, you will have to do it in advance in order to do it properly. Things you will need to plan are:

    • Moving budget – If you want to avoid spending more than your wallet can handle, stick to your budget.
    • Moving services you need – Whether you need to hire piano movers, labor-only movers, or get business storage, that’s something you’ll need to write down and see whether you can afford it.
    • Decluttering – There’s no point in moving everything you own… especially when moving over long distances. Instead, get rid of the items you don’t need anymore and give them to someone in need.
    • Dealing with paperwork – This is probably one of the most boring parts of every move. Plan it properly and you won’t have to spend more time than necessary on it.
    • Organizing a goodbye party – It’s up to you whether you are going to host one. This can be a great way to say goodbye to your loved ones before moving from Idaho to Texas.

    Finding help

    Handling an entire interstate move on your own is almost an impossible mission. So, you shouldn’t try to do everything by yourself. Instead, find help. If you have young kids, consider asking some of your relatives to keep an eye on them. You should do the same thing if you own pets. Keep in mind that you can always hire a babysitter (or a petsitter) if your loved ones are busy on the day of your relocation.

    Also, you need to decide whether you are going to hire a moving company or not. Professionals can help you in many ways and that’s why you should opt for hiring them. In case you need to transport expensive or very delicate items, move your company, or transport heavy equipment, hiring movers is a must. Some moving companies even offer high-value product shipping and medical equipment shipping services to make the transportation of these goods easier and safer.

    Going on a house and job hunt

    Another thing you will need to do before your interstate family move from Idaho to Texas is to find a new home and a new job. This can be tricky since you’re not living in Texas. But, if some of your relatives are in Texas, consider asking them to help you with these tasks. For example, you can find a couple of homes online and your relatives can check them in person. Even better if your budget allows you to go on a  trip to Texas before your move to find a new place.

    Finding a business will probably be much easier for you since you can have tests and interviews online. Also, because of the current COVID-19 situation, most companies have stopped organizing in-person interviews.
