Tips for a Successful Long-Distance Move
Generally, a long-distance move is a move over 300 miles away. Moving 300 miles is a very complicated task if you have not fully prepared. It is incredibly important to make sure that you take the time to thoroughly plan your move.
Make a Plan
It is important to know your plan as soon as you know you’re moving. Creating a checklist of everything you need to get done prior to your move allows you to prepare more efficiently while making sure everything is completed on time.
Create a List of your Belongings
Creating a checklist of your belongings not only allows you to make sure you packed everything, but it also allows you to make sure everything arrives at your new home. Keeping a list of everything you own in one place saves you the stress of figuring out if everything has arrived in your new home.
Don’t Keep Everything
When packing for a long-distance move, prioritizing your items allows you to save money, reduce stress, and keep only what is necessary. Environmentally-friendly options for the belongings you choose not to bring include selling your items, recycling or donating.
Pack an “Open First” box
An open-first box should include items that you’ll need in your first few days or weeks, such as bedding, dishes and kitchen supplies, towels, and some clothes.
