Highly Recommended Movies To Watch Before You Move
Moving The Family Across The Country
Based on our years of experience, there are a few movies related to long distance moving guaranteed to make the process more enjoyable. If you are moving with your family and the kids are worried about starting a new school, get everyone together for a family movie night and enjoy any of the following:
Karate Kid: Both the 1984 and the 2012 versions of the Karate Kid are uplifting tales about a kid trying to get by at a new school, when he couldn’t feel more different.
Toy Story: Just try to watch any of the Toy Story movies without smiling. Go ahead, we dare you. It’s just not possible. And to avoid losing any of your kids precious toys during the big move (like in the first Toy Story film released in 1995) be sure to take advantage of our packing services.
Cheaper by the Dozen: Whether you children are still in diapers or moody teenagers, moving with kids is no easy task. But after watching all the silly antics in this movie, you’re sure to feel a bit more at ease knowing your move won’t be that crazy.
Classic Movies To Watch If You Need To Move Heavy Furniture
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again:
Don’t attempt to move heavy furniture on your own, and don’t trust just any moving company. Leave it to the licensed professionals at Jake’s! And if you need some reminders why, check out some of these classics.
Happy Gilmore: Remember the hilarious scene in this Adam Sandler classic where Happy discovers he can really drive a ball? Well, you’ll never catch our movers slacking off like the movers in this scene. We work hard for you!
Beetlejuice: Unlike the moving company in this movie, we take extra care with your valuables. And if you are worried you may be going a bit overboard with the redecorating ideas, you’re still more together than Delia.
Even Moving Down The Street Can Be A Huge Hassle
Most of our local moving services are for couples that live in the same area and are taking that next step in the relationship. If you’re nervous about moving in together, then enjoy these rom coms and laugh about it together.
Annie Hall: Things may not have ended happily ever after for this couple, but the hilarious scenes throughout this move are sure to bring any couple closer together.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding: No matter how crazy you think your fiance’s family is, you’ll feel better after watching this romantic favorite. Unless of course you are also moving in next door to your new inlaws. If that’s the case, at least you’ll have great movers from Jake’s helping you out.
Student Moving Made Funny
Some of our favorite movies on this list are about student moving. It doesn’t matter if you are a parent with mixed feelings about having an empty nest, or if you are getting ready to move out of your parent’s house for the first time, everyone will enjoy these movies.
Revenge Of The Nerds: If you’re a parent, you will be able to relate to the earlier scenes in the film where Lewis and Gilbert get dropped off on campus for the first time. And for any of you students out there that are thinking about renovating your first apartment, watch this movie first.
Harry Potter: Who can forget the excitement of the first time that Harry arrived at Hogwarts! But unless you have magical powers, you may need some help moving. We’ve got you covered for all your student moving needs, plus we provide complete storage solutions as well.
Legally Blond: Even if you don’t have as much stuff as Elle Woods, relying on an experienced moving company like ours is a great way to enjoy a hassle-free move when you go off to school.
Commercial Moving Movies
Moving your business can be one of the most stressful experiences. So, get the team together to enjoy one of these movies.
Ghostbusters: Talk about moving special office equipment!
Silicon Valley: Ok, we realize this is a TV show and not a movie. But, it is still highly recommended. These guys move in and out of new offices so many times, your big move will seem like a walk in the park by comparison.
