Premire Atlanta Moving Company – 770-667-5023

Summer is coming to an end! If you have recently moved to Atlanta with your family and your local Atlanta moving company has already finished unpacking all of your belongings, try throwing a barbecue for a fun and casual way to meet your neighbors.

Atlanta chef Tony Mann recently gave Atlanta Magazine tips for grilling ribeye steaks this summer. According to Mann, ribeye steaks are one of the best, if not the best, cuts of meat out there. A ribeye has the perfect combination of meat and fat to add rich flavor and tenderness; however, if prepped poorly, they do not live up to their potential.

Mann’s prepping and ribeye grilling tips are as follows:

  • Unwrap the meat and let it sit out on the counter at room temperature for at least 10 minutes
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Grill with a charcoal and wood combo
  • Don’t press down on the steaks while grilling
  • Finish the steak with garlic-thyme butter

Some may question why they should let the ribeye sit out for 10 minutes – a process that Mann calls “breathing.” The Atlanta top chef explains that unwrapping ribeye steaks is “like opening a fine wine, you need to let it breathe.”

Atlanta movers suggest grilling your steaks to the texture of your liking, but Mann says that a total of 10 minutes is ideal. He suggests grilling the ribeye at 45 degrees for 2 ½ minutes, then rotating to 90 degrees for 2 ½ minutes, then rotating to 45 degrees again for another 2 ½ minutes, and finally rotating to 45 degrees again, for another 2 ½ minutes.

Needless to say, once everyone gets a whiff of the delicious steaks being grilled, you will not be able to keep your neighbors away!


Although soccer fans may be rejoicing in Georgia, not everyone is necessarily thrilled about the new Atlanta soccer complex proposal that was passed.

Earlier this month, the DeKalb County Commission voted 4-3 to pass a proposal by Atlanta United FC to construct a $30 million soccer complex. The complex will be located along Interstate 285 just behind the jail. It will include a 3,500-seat stadium, three practice fields, a large team headquarters, and 6,000 square feet of office space.

Interim DeKalb CEO, Lee May, explained that the deal would promote economic growth for the county, stating that, “It’s not about a sports facility. It’s about having a financial investment in a corridor that’s desperately in need. I’m talking about the public good that will be generated because of this public investment.”

Atlanta movers are excited that the soccer complex will be used for youth soccer tournaments, school graduations, and for hosting professional soccer matches starting in 2017. However, there were other commissioners who felt as if the proposal was not a good investment of public money, and a lot of public residents agree. In fact, the meeting denied public comments before the vote, leaving many residents disgruntled and shouting their oppositions.

Hopefully, the soccer stadium will be beneficial to the county’s economy and prove to be a good investment, as promised. If you are moving to Atlanta and have children who love soccer, be sure to stay up-to-date with the stadium’s completion and youth programs that will be offered in 2017.


If you are moving to Atlanta, there is an important aspect of the housing market to make sure that you are aware of; in Atlanta, housing costs can vary depending on the sale of distressed properties. Although many metro areas follow this real estate rule, Atlanta increases the average price of homes more than any other metro in the United States.

Not sure what all of this means? Let’s say that you have been looking for homes in Atlanta throughout the past year. When the time comes to decide upon a home to purchase and to make the move to Atlanta, you may notice that the prices of homes have risen – without any explanation why. If the city is not selling distressed properties at a decent pace, they will raise housing prices a certain percentage in order to compensate for the mortgage costs from said properties.

Over the past year, the average sticker price for an Atlanta home rose six percent. California based research and analysis company, CoreLogic, says that the numbers are expected to continue to steadily increase, reaching a 4.5 percent increase within the next 12 months. Atlanta movers urge house hunters to buy while prices are slightly lower, as CoreLogic does not foresee a decrease in Atlanta housing costs anytime soon.

When people think of the best sub-cities for food near downtown Atlanta, they typically think of Roswell, Alpharetta, and Woodstock. However, Atlanta movers urge new residents to check out the foodie venues of College Park. Located just 13 minutes from downtown Atlanta (according to Google Maps), why would you not venture away from the city for a wider variety of cuisines? Local moving companies, such as All My Sons Moving & Storage, could not have made moving any easier; if you are moving to Atlanta, check out these five restaurant hot spots in College Park and you’ll fit in like a local in no time!

1. The Pecan – If you missed The Pecan on your flight into the International Terminal at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, you can still find it down the road at the Southside staple. For the southern welcome you deserve when moving to Atlanta, try some of The Pecan’s signature dishes, such as shrimp and grits made with pepper jack cheese, crab cakes and fried catfish. And, of course you have to try the pecan pie!

2. Brake Pad Restaurant and Bar – Sister to Universal Joint, Oakhurst Market, Moe’s & Joe’s, 97 Estoria and Steinbecks Bar, Brake Pad is the perfect place to grab a couple of friends and relax while sipping on some beer. This rehabilitated gas station serves up American cuisine on a casual patio atmosphere.

3. The Manchester Arms – Offering a menu that has something to offer everyone, The Manchester Arms features some not-so-authentic British pub food, such as fish and chips, Shepard’s pie, and bangers and mash. You can also order a traditional pub beer like Boddingtons, the beloved cousin to your bangers and mash.

4.The Corner Grille – Moving to Atlanta from Louisiana and missin’ that Cajun cuisine? Get your fix with The Corner Grille’s blackened salmon, Cajun pasta, catfish po’boy, and chicken and waffles.

5.Bole Ethiopian Restaurant – Venture far from the foodie norm and try the best, and perhaps the only authentic Ethiopian cuisine around Atlanta. However, newcomers beware – when the menu says “spicy,” they are not kidding!

 


Are you moving to Atlanta and have a passion for reading, writing, poems, and even storytelling? The number one thing that Atlanta movers tell new residents about the city is that there truly is something to do for everyone – even storytelling enthusiasts. Since moving to a new city can seem overwhelming, local movers have come up with a list of the top three social hangouts in Atlanta for storytellers, or anyone who is looking to meet fellow literature enthusiasts.

  1. LIT- Known as the place in Atlanta for “books, booze, and beats,” on the last Thursday of every month you can find LIT in the Old Fourth Ward behind Pizzeria Vesuvius. This Edgewood Speakeasy features 10 readers that must read a selection according to that month’s particular theme. If you just moved to Atlanta and are interested in reading at the next gathering, be sure to jump on reserving a slot as they fill up quickly. There is no entrance fee, but attendees are encouraged to bring a book to donate.
  2. 10 Days Before - Every two weeks, events for 10 Days Before, a writers’ group, take place throughout Atlanta. You can RSVP for these events via their com page, as well as attend critiquing sessions every other Thursday for the opportunity to have your work analyzed by others.
  3. Atlanta Screenwriters Anonymous- Moving to Atlanta and are a huge movie fanatic? Do you love to write your own screenplays? Atlanta Screenwriters Anonymous, founded in 1998, is the perfect social gathering to network yourself and learn more about the screenwriting process.

May is National Moving Month, and although it may be over, the moving season is not and there are things that you and your family should keep in mind this moving season. From April of 2014 to April of 2015, the Better Business Bureau received 30,149 inquires related to moving companies located in Washington alone. During that timeframe, 120 consumers filed reports and even lawsuits against moving companies; the majority of the issue being damaged or missing items.

All My Sons Moving & Storage Atlanta along with the BBB, have tips to make sure that your summer move goes as smoothly as possible:

  1. Double check that the Atlanta mover you hire has the proper licensing and insurance. You can check the MDOT and US DOT number online at the S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration: Licensing and Insurance Public website.
  2. Reach out to as many moving companies as you can, receiving at least three estimates.
  3. Get everything in writing
  4. Check with BBB to see the mover’s rating and if there are any complaints filed against them.
  5. Download the free Moving Fraud Prevention Guide. Interstate moving companies are required to comply with federal rules and regulations, which includes registering with FMCSA. Go to the FMCSA website and search to see if the movers you received quotes from are registered movers and view their complaint history. Knowing your rights when it comes to moving your belongings is important, so you can take the appropriate course of action if anything does occur, and this site will give you all of the information you need, but All My Sons hopes you won’t have to go this far. If you do not need to move out-of-state, you may still want to hire a mover who is FMCSA registered, so that your move will be properly taken care of.

If you are planning on moving this year, know that you are doing a huge favor for local moving companies. Ever since the economic collapse of 2008, caused by faulty mortgage loans and resulting in many people losing their homes and losing faith in the home buying process, moving companies took a big hit. In just the past two years, the housing market has taken a turn for the better, and moving companies are too.

Atlanta movers are seeing more and more families move into neighborhoods and suburbs that have everything to offer – in the long term. Now, home buyers are being smarter about the process of moving, looking specifically for areas that have a history and future prediction of always doing economically well.

Josh Bloomer, president of Pony Express Moving Services in Jamaica Plain, says that the booming real estate market and boost in the moving industry, as well as the increased demand for homes, can be attributed to Google and online tools. He explains that over the past ten years, consumers have become more knowledgeable about doing their research before making any major, costly decisions – like buying a home or hiring a moving company.

After many years in the moving industry and seeing the fall and rise of moving companies since 2008, Bloomer’s tip to moving: get a recommendation from your friends, “Old-fashioned word of mouth is still the best way.”
