Whether you are moving across the country because you want to try out a new adventure, or because you just got a new job and had things all set up to start a new life, long distance moving is never all that easy. While it can be plenty exciting, there are all kinds of things you need to make sure to do to make the move as painless as possible.
1. Hire a professional to move you
Moving out of state is never going to be all that easy. You are likely moving to a place you don’t know that well. You may not even know how to get there. You aren’t going to want also to have to worry about how you get all your stuff from one place to the other. This is why you need to hire a professional moving service. You can do the packing, you can do the preparing, but let them do the actual moving. Not only will this take a load off your mind when it comes to prepping, but you will be able to enjoy the move more because you can just take in the scenery of the move.
The thing you need to make sure, when you are looking for a moving company, is that you get one that is both licensed and insured. This could seem like a no-brainer, but there are plenty of companies out there that are going to put themselves forward as though they are licensed or insured. You are going to find out quickly if something goes wrong that they were neither.
2. Make a list and check it twice
Double checking a list should be done by more people than just Santa. You are going to want to put together a checklist of everything in your house as you are packing up. Go room by room with boxes, pack something up carefully and write down what you put in the box. You should also think about numbering the boxes so that when you are going to unpack you will be able to find what you are looking for easily. Keep in mind the main reason for this list isn’t expediency, it’s making sure that everything that is supposed to make the trip, does.
3. Get everything ready to go to your destination
The last thing you want to do when you are moving across the country is getting to your destination and not have any power or water or Internet. You’re going to want to make sure these companies know when they are coming and when their services are supposed to be active. You should have someone ready to meet these people if at all possible, because they will be able to let anyone into your apartment or house if they need to get in. You’re going to want to make sure the arrival dates are known by the mail service as well. You don’t want to have to be off the grid at all.
