Moving across the country or even across the state is quite stressful. However, there are a few things you can do to make long-distance moves significantly easier. Prepare accordingly and your move really will be that much quicker and easier. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Prepare
Prepare for your upcoming move at least a couple weeks before the transition and you will find this challenge isn’t as difficult as you originally assumed. Preparing for long distance moves starts with researching moving companies. Do some digging and you’ll find that Winter Moving & Storage, an Atlas Van Lines Agent, is the best around. We have fantastic reviews on all the online review directories. Our team embraces the challenge of long-distance moves, regardless of the distance in question. Our moving crew has the muscle, massive trucks and work ethic necessary to complete your move in surprisingly little time.
There is no sense moving items you won’t use in your new home or place of business – whittle down your belongings to those you actually need and use. Once you have downsized your possessions to eliminate the unnecessary clutter, you’ll rest easy knowing you won’t waste time nor money moving items that are likely to collect dust at your new digs. Don’t throw out all the items you downsize. If the items you no longer need are in working condition, donate them to a local charity or religious organization. Items that have considerable value can be sold at a garage sale or handed down to nieces, nephews, children, grandkids, etc.
Step 2: Label Every Single Box
Don’t make the common mistake of loading up all your items into boxes and leaving them unmarked. Make a list of the items in your boxes. Tape these lists to each respective box. The logic in labeling your moving boxes is that knowledge of box contents makes it that much easier to unpack once you arrive at your destination. If you don’t want to take the time necessary to list every single item in your boxes, mark them with the specific room they will be unloaded into. As an example, put “master bedroom” or “living room” on boxes containing the items that belong in those respective rooms. Labeling in this manner will dramatically facilitate the unpacking process so you’re not left flustered when looking for specific items.
Step 3: Ask for Help!
