10 Easy Tips for Long Distance Moving

Posted by: admin

Long distance moving requires extensive planning in order to be successful. Luckily, here at Hollander Storage & Moving we have collected up the best tips for you in order to keep you on track with the planning and preparation process.

 

  1. Start planning early – Long distance moving can be complicated, so start your research as soon as you know you are moving. Research your new town as well as moving companies.
  2. Get several moving quotes – take your time finding the best rate for the highest quality service. Don’t fall for a scam company.
  3. Hire a reliable moving company – stay away from companies with bad reputations or ones that are lacking credentials and positive reviews.
  4. Stay on schedule – packing won’t be as stressful if you do it little by little rather than waiting until the very end.
  5. Pack smart – Make sure all of your items are secure and protected. Remember that your belongings are going on a long journey across many miles.
  6. Sort, organize, and get rid of things – moving is a great opportunity to sort belongings and get rid of things that you no longer want. Donate, sell, or throw away items that you no longer wish to keep.
  7. Don’t pack essentials too early – don’t pack away anything that you will need in the days before moving day, or items that you will want to keep with you on hand. Pack a travel essential bag to keep along with you.
  8. Stay organized, and label as you go – label each box by clearly writing your name and the contents found in each. Also, label which room of the new house they will be going to.
  9. Let the movers handle it– don’t attempt to move heavy furniture before moving day. That’s what the professionals are for!
  10. Get excited –You can look forward to exploring your new community and settling into your new home.
