What you need to know about long distance moving companies

People adapt to their environment, thus the reason why moving to another state is not always an easy transition. But one thing that is for sure, the earlier you prepare and plan for your interstate relocation, the better off you will be. Last minute moving companies (24/7 moving companies) are more expensive because and stressful. This is why planning ahead of time (with months ahead) for your move is the best you can do since waiting until the last minute creates a lot of headaches, especially during the packing process.

Find and Hire Reputable Movers

Once you have your new home ready to go and you’ve set your move in dates, it’s time to do some research on your movers. This is really important – quality long-distance movers can make or break your move. Start with an internet search; read reviews on Yelp, Facebook, Google, etc. to find those that look good. Narrow it down to 3-4 options and call each of those companies for a quote. A quality company will give you the best level of attention and customer service on the phone as they will during your move. If they can’t answer all your questions and make you feel comfortable about your move, then you should opt for a different company.

    Clean Out Your Stuff

    The real stressful process is packing all your stuff. But there is an important first step before you start packing all your belongings – you need to clean out your home. Our long-distance movers have seen too many instances of people paying to move items they don’t really want or need. Save your money and declutter your home first! Go room by room or organize similar items to decide what you want to keep, toss, or donate.

    Label Your Boxes

    Now that you have cleaned out your home, it’s time to organize and pack your belongings. Do yourself a favor and make an inventory list of your items, and LABEL YOUR BOXES. Not a joke. It is the worst feeling knowing that you need something and can’t remember what box you put it in. Save yourself time when you get to your new home. Write the box label number or name on the inventory list so you know exactly where everything is.

    Get Moving Insurance

    Many people don’t quite understand how moving insurance works. A company that offers long distance relocation services is required to offer a basic level of moving insurance, but this moving insurance only covers $0.60 per pound. Make sure you ask your moving company if they offer any full-coverage insurance; otherwise, it’s a smart idea to purchase your own policy.

    Long-distance moving doesn’t have to be a pain. Our team at State to State Move is here to help you make a successful move no matter where you go. Relax. We got this.
