Relocating out of state can be a stressful experience especially if you are moving across the country. Staying organized and preserving your sanity is not as hard as you think if you follow some fool proof tips to keeping your relocation smooth and efficient. One of the most important things to consider when traveling and relocating out of state is that you will have many more things to tackle than when moving locally. Organization is your best friend as well as planning ahead along with a backup plan in case something goes wrong.
Yaacovzon Movers has provided the following long distance moving tips to get you started on the road to a successful move!
Understanding your moving space: If you are moving to a one bedroom apartment in the city, the extra furniture you have piled in your spare bedroom probably isn’t high on your list of priority items. Why pay to move something that you can’t use? Think about the size of the space you are moving to, your new life and the weather before deciding which items are necessities and which you need to leave behind or sell.
Developing an organized moving system: Organize your belongings into four categories. These categories should include; items that you definitely want to keep, items that you plan to sell, the items that you want to give away to family and friends, and the items that you intend to throw out.
Use the one-year rule when packing: If you have some items that you haven’t used in a year, consider giving it away to someone who will use it. Don’t pay to move something that will end up in another box collecting dust.
Write down a moving schedule: Time can easily get away from you when you are in the middle of a long distance move. Put together a moving calendar and organizer to keep you on track. Keep in mind that some items are time sensitive while others can be planned in advance.
Moving Cost: Like most things in life, the cost for a professional moving service varies. The lowest prices do not always work out to be the cheapest options. Some movers apply extra charges even with a quote. The knowledgeable experts at Yaacovzon Movers will arrange an in-home visit to inventory your items and completely organize your packing and planning so you can be sure you are receiving exactly what you pay for without the worry of unexpected expenses.
