Planning a long distance move isn’t easy. It takes time, effort, and patience to get everything organized and ready for the move. But most people, no matter how organized they are, end up frantic and stressed out during the day of the move. After all, there’s nothing relaxing about packing up your entire home and hauling everything across state lines.
At EZ Movers,
we are long distance movers who often have to assure our clients that everything is going smoothly and their possessions will reach the destination without problems. If you plan your move carefully, you can fully expect it to run smoothly. Here are some suggestions from our moving experts.
Understand Where You’re Going - Before you even hire a mover, take time to study your destination and the likely routes. A simple search on Google Maps will give you a clear roadmap of your journey. You can also read the rules and regulations of moving across state lines to understand just what’s required during the move. You should also look into estimated time and distance. If you do this, you have enough information to negotiate the right deal with the movers.
Plan in Advance
- Long distance moves are difficult to arrange so it pays to plan in advance. That’s especially true if you want to move in summer. Movers are usually busy during this time and won’t be able to easily schedule your move. It’s a good idea to contact them about 3 months in advance. That would allow you to schedule the move according to your convenience.
- While most moving companies have their own insurance cover, you should insure your possessions to avoid problems. Moving without sufficient coverage can prove to be very expensive if your possessions are damaged en route. Insurance might seem like an added expense, but it can save you considerable amount of money and trouble. You can discuss the merits of full-value coverage and basic coverage with your mover to before you hire them.
Keep Essential Items with You
- During a long distance move, you need to have all your documentation with you. You’ll reach your new home before your shipment arrives and will need essentials like driver’s license, passports, social security cards, birth certificates, bank statements, and tax returns. You will also need your toiletries, clothes, medication, mobile phones, laptops, etc.
If you follow these steps, you’re all set. All you need to do is pack your shipment securely and double-check everything before signing off the move.
