If you’re preparing for a long-distance move, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First and foremost, you need to make sure that you take the time to thoroughly plan your move. Here are some other tips to assist with your long-distance move and help simplify things:
- Do not pack food items or liquid — doing so could potentially damage your belongings
- Use proper packing supplies and materials (the higher quality, the better!)
- Always take the time to mark your belongings with labels that identify the item and its owner (you!)
- Keep all your items as organized as possible
- Determine your moving details ahead of time
Don’t Forget About Scheduling!
It can be tricky to know when to schedule your long-distance move. If possible, try to buy a home and move during the winter. There will be less competition when it comes to moving long distance, since home buying always decreases during the wintertime. If you cannot make the winter work, try to move any other month except June or July. This part of the summer is “moving season,” so you can expect to see an increase in moving costs. And, take the weather into consideration. If you know a certain time of year is known for its heavy rains in your area, you might want to avoid those weeks. This could have a serious effect on the logistics of your long-distance move.
