Expert, David Gregg, Offers Tips to Close Loopholes in your Summer Moving Hotlist.
Each year 40 million Americans move, with half of all moves occurring during the summer months. Given that the average American has over 60 separate tasks to complete in order to prepare for a move, it’s no surprise that some important decisions slip through the cracks in the moving crate.
With July as one of the busiest months of moving season, there are thousands of consumers dealing with the common headaches that to go hand in hand with the process. David Gregg, senior editor, Behindthebuy.com, offers consumers advice on how to limit the bumps along the way.
“Nobody likes to move-- it's a complete upheaval of your life,” says Gregg. “One simple thing consumers forget to do to ease this transition is to get all their creature comforts, like digital cable, high-speed Internet and phone services connected in advance. In fact when you call your cable company to disconnect your services, you can ask them right then to connect you with a representative at your new cable company. All in a single call. If you forget to schedule your new services or you’re not a cable customer to start with, you can still connect your new services in advance by going to a free website (http://www.cablemover.com ) or calling toll-free to 855-MOVETV2 (668-3882).”
In addition, Gregg says moving is a great time to update and upgrade your home based technology.
“Reconnecting your home electronics can be a headache of wires—especially if you forgot to label the wires before you unhooked them at your former home,” said Gregg. “And don’t forget there are wireless options to surround sound speakers, single wire connections to hook-up an HDTV, simple to set-up wireless modems to securely connect to the internet and smart universal remotes that can take the place of up to 15 remotes that will even allow you to operate your equipment through audio furniture with the doors closed!”
On today’s edition of the ‘myHome' series, The Balancing Act on Lifetime TV welcomed Gregg, who offered viewers advice on how to rid themselves of all of their wires and affordably upgrade their outdated technology.
Gregg also introduced viewers to new devices designed to seamlessly meld all of their tech devices and home theater equipment into their home décor.
