Long Distance Moving Companies

There are many things to include in planning such as; your desired move date, drop off date at the new location, any transportation means or accommodations along the way or at the new destination, new address change, additional paperwork to be completed, belongings that will travel with you, packing/boxing + unpacking your items, etc. Write everything down the planning and organizing everything you will need to do before, during, and after the move. That being side take a step back, create a plan, and organize everything to execute your move across the country.
#2 Packing Up
Another one of the best tips for long distance moving is packing your belongings or let the moving company facilitate the packing of your belongings. Either way is fine but different time constraints on each, however, just be sure to keep an inventory list of all of your belongings, number of boxes, including keepsake and expensive items, etc. If you are packing yourself, be sure to pack everything in the same size boxes and not to leave small, random, or miscellaneous items all over the place. Packing everything in an organized fashion with same size boxes will ensure the loading onto the truck goes fast and smooth. Try to get all of the packing down a couple days before the move so you are not packing last-minute boxes and scrambling. Plus, to help your move go even faster, be sure to disassemble furniture or larger items that need to be taken apart.
