Job offers, family, friends, or a change of scenery are all reasons to move a long distance. No matter the reason, one fact remains clear about long-distance moving: it’s often more stressful than a local move. With a long-distance move, there is one main thing to think about—logistics. In our other posts about moving, we give you tips about how to prepare, pack, and plan your move. So, in this post, we’re going to cover 3 steps on how to move long distance the right way.
How To Move Long Distance Easily: 3 Steps
Have A Yard Sale And Declutter
One reason long-distance moves are more expensive than local moves is because of weight and space. If you go through all your belongings and have a few yard sales, you’d be surprised how much you can get rid of. Another great option, aside from yard sales, is Facebook Marketplace. Craigslist isn’t as efficient as it used to be, and you can communicate with potential buyers quicker on the Marketplace.
So, you’ve cut down on all your clutter and unnecessary items. It’s time to think about how you and your things are getting to wherever it is you’re moving.
How Will You Get There?
Firstly, how are you going to get there? Are you driving your car, towing it behind, or using some other mode of transportation? Oftentimes, this is one of the most difficult parts of the long-distance move to figure out. You may be considering renting a U-Haul or container.
We often hear that full-service moving companies are more expensive than DIY moving. Well, that may be true, but consider a few things. When you hire a company like Busy Beez Movers, you’re getting the white-glove service that makes us a top-rated mover. We handle it all. So, when you choose us as your mover, we load, transport, and unload everything for you. When we handle your belongings, we use a level of care that’s unmatched in the industry.
Activate Your Utilities
Finally, you’re almost to the big day. But, there’s often something that residents forget to do before they make the move. To ensure a stress-free moving day(s), you need to be sure to schedule all your utilities to be activated before you arrive. As a result, you won’t have to worry about not having electricity or running water. This will save you time and a big headache during one of the most stressful life events you can go through. Moving shouldn’t be all stress. There’s so much change coming that it’s easy to forget about the exciting things to come.
