Tops Tips for Planning a Long-Distance Move

There are many tips that can be useful to you while you are moving, whether across town or across the world. When planning a long-distance move, however, these tips should be used as soon as possible to prepare yourself and your family for an exciting time in your lives.

Make Decluttering a Priority

Before any move, you should make it a priority to declutter the entire house. However, a long-distance move may require even more decluttering than if you were moving across town. Moving long-distance can quickly become expensive, especially if you are moving an entire household. Go room by room and start making piles of items to donate, sell, trash, and keep. If there are any clothes, shoes, or accessories that haven’t been worn in a year, then get rid of them. Damaged or unused appliances and furniture should also be recycled, donated, or sold. Use this opportunity to furnish your new home instead of dragging along old furniture and items you will soon replace.

Find a Professional Moving Company

Moving across town is stressful enough, so it will be significantly more stressful moving long-distance, especially without the help of a professional moving company. Ask family, friends, and coworkers for suggestions to hire a dependable and respectable long-distance moving company.

Plan Ahead of Time

For efficient and stress-free long-distance moving, the key is to plan as much as you can well ahead of the moving day. Keep a binder full of all moving company documents, pertinent medical records for the family, and other documents you will need immediate access to during the move. Fill out a calendar with important dates, such as when to cancel utilities, put in a change of address, and notify children’s old and new schools of the move.
