Tips from Our Santa Clarita Long-Distance Movers
It's important to plan ahead before you embark on your moving adventure, whether you are moving out of state or somewhere far away from your current home. We have compiled a list of things to help you get everything coordinated.
Downsize your possessions.
Before you begin to pack everything up, try getting rid of anything you can live without or that you have been meaning to toss. The less you have to move long distances, the better.
Find a reliable moving company with good reviews.
You are placing your belongings in the hands of movers. You want to make sure that they will get the job done and get it done right. We make it our aim to provide the best in customer service!
Book your moving company at least three months before moving day.
It is wise to plan ahead, especially if you are looking to move during the summer, which is a busy season.
Determine which furniture is going with you.
If your new home is smaller, it is a good idea to figure out a general layout of your furniture before you move. You don't want to pay extra to move furniture that you ultimately are not going to be able to keep in your new place.
Label everything properly.
Keep all of your belongings more organized by packing them by room. On the outside of each box, label what room they will go to in your new home and list what is inside.
These are just a few pieces of advice that we have found to be helpful in preparation for a long-distance move. Call our Santa Clarita team at Affordable Quality Moving and Storage if you have any questions or want to request a quote.
How Does a Long-Distance Move Work?
Now more than ever, individuals, families, and businesses are relocating to other areas and states. This means long-distance moves are on the rise, and these can present certain challenges that are best addressed with careful planning and an early start on decluttering and packing. Most involve hiring a Santa Clarita long-distance moving company that can transport your belongings across state lines or however far they need to go. This typically means that there is a delay of one or more days to get your items to their final destination, depending on your needs, the exact distance of the move, and other factors. You’ll also have to think about how your car or other vehicles will get to your new home.
Many homeowners choose to drive their own vehicles to their new homes while the movers transport all of their furniture and other belongings. By packing luggage with a few days’ worth of clothing, toiletries, medication, and other necessities, you can be sure you’ll have what you need from the time the moving company picks up and then delivers your belongings.
How Can I Mentally Prepare for My Long-Distance Move?
Part of getting ready for your long-distance move is mental preparation. You can make moving a much less stressful and far more enjoyable process by protecting your mental health. Early preparation, taking time for yourself and your family, reminding yourself of the benefits of moving, and being open with and communicating about your feelings can help you get through your long-distance move. And the added benefit of choosing our SCV long-distance movers is that we can handle the heavy lifting (and even the packing and unpacking) to free up your time and reduce your stress!
