Tips for an Interstate Move

People move for all types of reasons, whether you’ve just bought your first house, got a new job that requires you to relocate, or just need a change of scenery. While it can often be exciting and adventurous, moving is hardly a simple task no matter who you are. This is especially true for moving across state lines, or even across the county. Longer distances not only cause the whole move to take longer, but they are also usually more expensive.

Commit to Paring Down

While this is a great thing to do for all moves, it’s especially important for long distance moving. The amount of things you own will feel like more and more the longer you have to transport it for. This is especially true if you’re on the verge of being able to fit your belongings into a smaller sized vehicle, it’s usually worth it to let go of the things that matter least to you or would be easiest to purchase somewhere else in the future.

Start Packing Early

While this definitely goes hand in hand with minimizing your belongings, depending on how much you have it’s a good idea to start prepping and packing earlier than a move within your area. Because long distance moves have much more logistical details to cover, it’s best to start planning and packing early so that you have plenty of time to spare just in case your plans need to change at the last minute.

Hire an Inter-State Expert Moving Company

Not all moving companies are created equal, and not all moving companies specialize in long-distance relocation services. Do your research and make sure you are working with professionals who you can trust with your most important belongings. Interstate moves are definitely different because they might require multiple “legs” to the trip.

Utilize a Storage Center

Storage centers are great for longer moves because they give you a midway point between your old location and your new location. If your long distance move is put on a tight timeframe and you don’t have time to sort through your belongings to decide what should stay and what should go, it’s a great idea to use a storage center for the items you aren’t sure about while you focus on getting the essentials to your destination on time.
