A moving scrapbook keeps kids actively engaged with the process of moving.  This is a way to communicate moving in a fun, creative and educational way.  The scrapbook also serves as a security blanket if your children miss their old routine or their old house.  We have found that kids love this activity, especially if they are the project manager and get to make the creative decisions at the craft store.

Two Men and a Truck® likes to keep kids involved by being the boss on moving day.  Our goal is to ease the stress for you and your whole family.  If you’re planning on moving soon, one of our trained move consultants will come out to your home to give you a free estimate before scheduling your move.  This part could even be added to the scrapbook!  Check our website to learn more about our services http://www.twomensacramento.com
