Tips for Long Distance Moving
Select a Reputable Company
This is particularly important for a long distance move. Choosing trusted movers that will be with your stuff out on the road is essential! From proper packing and loading to safely driving and protecting your belongings from point A to point B – to great communication and proper licensing and insurance. Don’t get fooled by a fly by night or by improperly licensed companies.
Moving long distance takes quite a bit more work to facilitate than a local move. From the actual distance and travel logistics to planning home, work and other essentials from afar – Planning goes a long way in a long distance relocation. Give yourself plenty of time and ask your moving company for tips!
Get to Know Your New Town
Put technology to work and scope out your new town from afar! From neighborhood safety and attractions to employment and housing opportunities.. Social tools and the internet can go a long way!
Plan for Surprises
Moving long distance is known for the unexpected popping up. From delays in closing or real estate transactions to weather issues or job related items – Plan for the unexpected. Allow ample time, get a company lined up with flexible scheduling and consider other additional services like packing, storage and junk removal to help facilitate a smooth transition.
Organize and Purge
The less you move, the less to deal with! If you have things you can purge and donate, we recommend handling that before you move. Get organized and pack accordingly to ensure things are safe in transit and easy to unpack at your destination
