Planning a Long Distance Move

Moving is stressful and a lot of work. All of this is multiplied when your move is out of town. If you are moving to a new city, my advice to you is to prepare yourself ahead of time. Take a look at the information below in order to ready yourself for a long distance move.
Long Distance Moves:
  1. The first thing to do is to look up local moving companies and get moving estimates. I recommend looking at their reviews and websites to make sure that they are a reputable moving company. Gather quotes and don’t be afraid to price shop.
  2. Ask the mover if they can come to your house for a visual estimate.  Over the phone quotes may seem simple but you should meet the movers and make sure that they know all of the details. Are stairs involved? How many boxes are needed for packing? All of these questions can be answered by professional movers.
  3. Packing Time!  If you want your long distance move to be “all inclusive”, simply ask your mover. Whether you are packing yourself or you have hired your movers to help, be sure to organize everything. I also recommend setting anything extremely fragile aside. Point it out to your mover or even bring it in the car with you for the drive. I know it’s hard but throw things away that you don’t need. Donate to a local organization! This will help you to clear clutter and will help your new home to be organized as well.
  4. Don’t forget to change your moving address. Forward all mail and be sure to contact any banks or credit card companies so that the statements are routed to the new location. Cancel any magazine or newspaper subscriptions and make a list of utilities that need to be cancelled as well. Make a list of phone numbers and companies and just go down the list to update each one.  
 
In the midst of all of this hectic moving stress, take a breather and get to know your new town! Take a weekend trip to check out your new town, ask around to find some new great shops or restaurants. Moving doesn’t have to be so stressful, especially if you leave it up to the professional movers!

I would be very stressed out if I had to move across the country! I can't imagine what that would be like. I'm glad there are companies to help people who have to do that! But maybe it could help you simplify your life and be more organized!

The gatherings who are moving get or lease a truck or trailer sufficiently extensive to convey their family unit products and, if important, get moving hardware, for example, dollies, furniture cushions, and payload belts to secure the furniture or to encourage the moving procedure itself. www.accuratemovers.ca

I agree with this article that packing time is very important! I think that we often underestimate the time that we need to pack. But if we want to be organized and have it go smoothly, it's better to plan more packing time than less!

Wow1 the cake look amazing, it’s simple and yet elegant and really the worthy of 50 the anniversary and I wish I can do that for my parents as will when they will be 50 years from their wedding. It will be so much fun to do that and I am waiting for that day to come.

I like that you talked about having the mover come give you a visual estimate. I have been looking for someone to help me move, and I was wondering how to prepare for it. I can see how it would be nice to get a visual inspection, so it ends up being more accurate.
