Long Distance Moving Tips
Over the years we’ve seen a handful of the same challenges arise when our clients are planning a long-distance move.
They move everything. When you’re moving, especially moving long-distance, this is a great opportunity to go through your belongings and make sure you’re only taking the things you really want in your new home.
They don’t consider storage. It’s common for families moving long-distances to need to utilize some form of storage during the process. Temporary storage can be a great option if you don’t have time to get everything settled right away or if you’re trying to downsize and need time to get rid of a few things.
They pack like they’re moving locally. You’ll want to make sure you pack your belongings in sturdy packing materials for a long-distance move. If you have specialty items or antiques that make require crating, give us a call.
What are some common challenges with long-distance moving?
As we mentioned above, it’s common for people moving long-distances to face similar issues. These include trying to move too many things or too many things all at once. That’s why temporary or permanent storage can be helpful during a long-distance move. Also it’s important to make sure your belongings are packed appropriately and it packing materials that will travel well over long distances.
When is the best time of year for a long-distance move?
If you have the opportunity to select an ideal move date, you should feel fortunate. Not everyone has this chance! To save time and money, plan your long-distance move for the off-season: fall or winter. During these seasons, your movers will have an easier time packing, loading, and unloading. The cool air allows people to work efficiently; it doesn’t sap energy like the summer heat does. In addition, the holiday season keeps everyone busy. This means that there will be less competition for excellent moving companies. If you can’t schedule your move for fall or winter, consider moving any month besides June or July. These are the two busiest months of the year for professional moving companies, and the rush will drive up their prices. Finally, most people move on either the first or the last day of any month. Consider moving in the middle of the month for increased savings.
