Movers in Tampa FloridaBrother’s EZ Moving Company, professional movers in Tampa Florida, are expert long-distance movers.  We have moved many people cross country.  

With our services, you can enjoy the trip. As a result, many people opt to drive across the country to their new home rather than fly.  

Every aspect of your trip should be worry free.  Here are some top tips for driving cross country.

Cross Country Moving Tips From Our Movers in Tampa Florida

The first thing you should do is give yourself enough time.  Make sure you plan not only your trip, but extra time in case you want to linger.  

Take a couple weeks to explore and enjoy your trip.  After you’ve gotten the time, plan your route.  Sit down with your traveling companions and each pick something you absolutely must see.  

Then, try to plan a route accordingly.  Be careful to allow each person only one or two must-haves, or you’ll get frustrated with the trip.

Make reservations, if possible.  Once you’ve planned your route, advance reservations will save you time and money.

After a long stretch of driving, the last thing you want to do is take three hours looking for vacancy- especially if you had planned to experience some of the local nightlife.  

In order to determine where you want to stay, try looking up attractions in advance.  Even if you don’t end up seeing everything, your knowledge will help you to find nearby lodging. This will increase your chances of getting to do everything you planned.

Pack only what you need.  Since your trusted movers in Tampa Florida will be professionally transporting your belongings for you, you can pack lightly.  

Try to limit yourself to a couple suitcases. Plan to stop at a laundromat if necessary during your trip.  Saving space will enable you to fit more in your car.  As a result, there will be more space for any spontaneous purchases along the way.  

Work Smart Not Hard

Remember, you’re going to be in your car for a long time.  The more room you have, the better!

Take frequent breaks while driving.  Make sure you have enough rest and are in great driving condition.  

Make sure that you have enough to eat, are well rested, and that you don’t cramp up.  Taking breaks to stretch or walk around for a while will help you to keep yourself ready for responsible driving.

Make sure you check the cell phone laws in each state.  During a long drive, it may be tempting to call or text your family and friends to pass the time.  

Knowing what you are allowed to do is important. 

You do not want a serious ticket from out of state.  However, if you usually are not permitted to use your cell phone, we strongly suggest you practice this cross country.  Using your cell phone while driving can be incredibly dangerous, especially if you are not used to do so.

Moving cross country is an exciting experience. It’s especially exciting if you are going to add a cross country road trip.  Follow our tips to ensure yourself a safe and fun-filled journey.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
