what your movers wish you knew - aspen homes for sale
We aren’t going to sugarcoat it: moving is stressful. Many people choose to hire professionals – but even then, it’s still a difficult experience.
If you hire movers, know that they will be professional and polite… but here’s what they really want you to know.

What Your Movers Want You to Know

  1. You can help by preparing for the move ahead of time. Make sure your movers know ahead of time if they’ll be moving a large, oddly shaped or heavy item.
  2. Decide whether you’ll pack yourself or your movers will pack for you – and if you choose to do your own packing, make sure you’re done by moving day. Stack your boxes against the walls so your movers have ample space to navigate your home as they pack the truck.
  3. Make note of what’s valuable. Communicate with your movers about things that are exceptionally valuable (even sentimental value counts) so they can take extra care with your precious items.
  4. Label everything you can. Make sure the movers know which room your belongings should go in at your new home.
  5. Don’t help while the movers are on-site. Your movers are very experienced, and well you may feel as if you are helping by lifting boxes, carrying things out to the truck, or sorting through your packed items… but you aren’t. Worse, you could be an insurance liability.

Typically, it’s acceptable to tip your movers. Remember, they are in the service business, and they’re working very hard. If it’s a long day, provide drinks and snacks – or even lunch.

19 Little Cloud Trail Aspen, Colorado

7 Beds 11 Baths 10,644 SqFt 0.370 Acres

Introducing our elegant, European inspired 9000+ square foot Villa in one of the most private areas of Aspen near the Aspen Institute and minutes from Aspen's Core.  Situated on over half an acres in a wooded setting, privacy is ensured.  A gracious circular snow melt driveway leads to the beautiful wood double doors which open to a high ceiled entry.  The exterior stone flows into the interior through the stone staircase that curves gracefully up the stairs to the main level which encompasses the office, primary bedroom and ensuite, and the main living area.  Soaring ceilings of honey colored wood contrast beautifully with white walls and the elegant black columns that support the vaulted, beamed ceiling add a beautiful accent to the honeyed tones.  Huge windows accented in the same honey wood give the feeling of being outdoors.  The furnishings echo the sophistication of the architecture with warm wood tones, neutrals, and texture.  The stone woodburning fireplace carries on the theme.  Around the corner is the 'wet' bar with glass cabinets, mini fridge and seating for 4.  The dining room has a beautiful honey wood table which matches the beams and seats 12.
The kitchen is the sought after 'white kitchen' with accents of black.  It has a gas cooktop with 6 burners and a griddle, double refrigerators, double sinks and banquet seating for breakfast dining.
Turning left from the front stairs is the office which features stone floors, soaring windows, built-in cabinets and bookshelves, a beautiful black desk and large screen TV.  Next door is the primary suite with a king bed, multiple windows which allow the light to shimmer over the neutral shades and knubby texture of the furnishings, built-ins and two closets.  More closets can be found in the ensuite which has an enormous, jetted tub, a steam shower and double vanities. 
One level down is a great surprise, a large indoor pool and hot tub with a cascading water feature at one end and an atrium ceiling that opens.  A large media/game room looks out over the pool through a wall of glass doors.  A large screen TV on the far wall and an elegant copper bar at the other end of the room make this a perfect entertainment space.
Four of the guest rooms are on the lower level, all are private, all have ensuites, and all have steam showers.  The fifth guest room is off the media/game room and has access to a bath down the hallway.
A full gym in the garage, large laundry room with two washers and two dryers, AC throughout, radiant heat, grassy backyard area, numerous decks, an outside grill put the icing on the cake.
