The COVID-19 crisis is fluid and there are many uncertainties and factors outside of our control that may, with little or no advance notice, impact our delivery of moving & storage services.

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. Staff members that experience symptoms and/or aware of exposure when not at work have been directed to stay home and notify their supervisor.
  • 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.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being provided with appropriate hand sanitizer and surface disinfecting supplies. 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.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with work gloves to be worn during the moving process and disinfected both during their work and between customers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with appropriate masks (when available) to be worn during the moving process as circumstances require.

  • Peasley Moving & Storage is offering Virtual Estimate Appointments! For more information, please visit our Virtual Estimate Appointment page or ask about this terrific option when speaking with one of our professional relocation consultants.

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.

Prepare for the extreme weather

If you are thinking about moving from California to Idaho, let’s just say you are in for quite a ride! Weather in Idaho can be extreme, and by can we mean it usually always is. With frigid and snowy winters and hot summers, those unaccustomed can face a lot of problems. So how extreme are we talking about? The average temperature for December is 24 degrees, while the average temperature in July is 91 degrees.

They will fight off the bad effects that the extreme weather can have on your items by keeping the temperature nice and cool. Certainly, something that will be a good investment, right?

You can become a homeowner by relocating to Idaho

If you are tired of being a renter and would love to have something of your own, you should know that Idaho is the perfect place for turning your homeownership dreams into reality. Homeownership rates in Idaho are very high and they rank as the 12th highest in the nation. As much as 69.6% of people own their homes, which is quite a staggering number.

That’s why when you do find your dream house and gather the funds, you will want to hire the best residential movers in Idaho.

You will enjoy natural beauty after relocating to Idaho

Idaho is a state with a picture-perfect natural setting. The vast swathes of preserved wilderness give Idaho a unique charm and appeal that differentiates it from many other states. That’s why it comes as no surprise that Idaho’s residents love to spend their time outdoors. From camping, fishing, rafting, hiking, and hunting, you will certainly have many fun outdoor activities at your disposal. And the best part is that you will be in good company! This is the way people here choose to spend their weekend – when the weather allows it, of course.

Moving to Idaho will enable you to live the American dream

By a lot of standards, Idaho is actually the perfect place to live out the American dream and fulfill your full potential. Idaho is one of the best states in the US for the middle class and, as previously mentioned, it’s also one of the best states for homeowners. That’s only on the state level because different cities in Idaho are just as impressive. Besides Boise, which we have already established is a great city on so many different levels, Pocatello in Idaho is also one of the best cities for career opportunities. But you don’t have to take our word for it when you can simply move to Idaho and experience everything it has to offer. And we’ve just mentioned the tip of the iceberg here.

The fulfillment of your American dream is certainly a good reason for you to move to Idaho.

DIY relocation vs. moving professionals?

You’ve decided that Idaho has everything you could ever ask for. Great! But now comes the hard part. Once you decide to move, you only have two options – choosing to have a DIY relocation or opting for professional help. Now we can’t tell you what’s the right solution for you as that depends on many different things. But what we can tell you is that you have to be really careful! 

A lot of times, a DIY relocation actually turns out to be more expensive than a move conducted by professionals. That’s because people usually have no idea what they are doing, so they end up making mistakes every second. It would be good to take into consideration your past moving experiences as well as take a good look at your budget.

It would be ideal if you could hire professionals when relocating to Idaho. But if you simply don’t have sufficient funds, educate yourself about DIY moves. There are certain pitfalls you must avoid and the good news is that they are easily preventable. If you properly prepare, of course! Good luck!
