Moving can already be a challenging task, but making that move long-distance can present additional challenges. Established Moving Jacksonville has some of the best long-distance movers to help make that move a little easier. We want to share some of our best tips for moving long-distance.
Long-Distance Moving Tips
Make a Plan As Soon as You Know You Are Moving
Once you know that you are moving long-distance, it is crucial to make a plan. You are about to move hundreds or thousands of miles away, so it’s better to be organized and ready for the move. Whether you are a laid-back person or the type of person who creates a moving spreadsheet and to-do list, having a plan for such a big move will help you through every step of your relocation.
Hire a Reputable Moving Company
When moving, you’ll want to do your research and hire a full-service moving company, like Established Moving and Storage, to help you stay on schedule and help with the move. Established Moving and Storage is registered with both the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), meaning we are certified for any intrastate (within state boundaries) or interstate (between different states) moves. Having a trusted and reputable company helping you through your move will allow you to have peace of mind knowing your belongings are being properly taken care of during the move.
Packing for a Long-Distance Move
Make an Inventory List
Packing is easy to get lost in. Making an itemized list of which boxes are holding which items will make a move with you and unpacking is a little less stressful on you. On top of hiring a trusted company, it’s also helpful to find a company like Established Moving and Storage that has packing services and can help with packing up your house, apartment, condo, or wherever you reside.
Plan Unpacking Ahead of Time
Before the move even happens, think of where everything will go in your new home. Make sure all the belongings you want to bring will have a spot in your new place. Lugging big furniture across the country just to find out there is no room for it isn’t an ideal situation.
