What Long-Distance Movers Need to Know

by | Sep 3, 2023

If you are moving across the country, or even across state lines, there are complications that can take place.  In knowing how to prevent and handle the situations that arise during a long-distance move, you can ensure that you have a smoother experience.  Here are some little-known facts that long-distance movers need to know.

Long-Distance Movers Should Know These Facts

An Inventory is Essential

Having an inventory of the items you are moving is especially important in a long-distance move.  Knowing what you have will make it easier to identify if something is missing, and will help you to stay organized.  If something does happen, your moving insurance will cover items you have an inventory of.

Label All of Your Boxes

Labeling your boxes will make unpacking so much easier.  After a long-distance move, you will likely have trouble remembering which box you put necessary items in.  Labeling will help you to prioritize so that you can unpack the essentials first and unpack the rest over time.

You May Need to Ship Your Car

Prepare for shipping your car in your moving budget, especially if you have more than one vehicle.  Driving long distances during your move is not the most enjoyable experience, and can be difficult if you are transporting multiple cars.  

Map Your Journey

Make sure you figure out how you are traveling in advance.  Mapping your journey will make everything much easier!  Are you planning on flying to your destination and having professional long-distance movers take care of the rest?  If so, make sure you pack your suitcase with clothing for the week, beauty supplies and appliances, and hygiene necessities so you can go about your routine.  Are you planning on driving?  Make sure you map your trip out in advance so you can plan any rest stops or overnight stays.  Also, try not to pack your car too heavily.  A cramped trip is a stressful one!

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.
