Moving to a new apartment across the street is one thing, moving long-distance across the state line is an entirely different story. Especially now, when two factors put together: a pandemic and an upcoming peak of the summer moves are threatening to turn your move into a disaster. No panic, though! With our professional guidance, and carefully organized long-distance moving checklist, you will be better prepared for your move and minimize possible costly mistakes. The better informed you are, the greater the chance to avoid stress and eliminate moving expenses. You better:
Keeping in mind the date of your move will help to plan the entire move, set deadlines, and avoid a stressful, last-minute rush. Once you set the date, start planning. Try to leave yourself at least 6 to 7 weeks before the Big Moving Day to get your moving quote, negotiate with the movers, declutter, pack, change your postal address, research the new neighborhood, community, and amenities including school, shopping, transportation, medical facilities, and successfully relocate on the set date.
Remember, a successful move is a well-organized move! While the COVID-19 restrictions are still in force, it is very important to keep important documents and information safe and accessible. Do not hesitate to ask your mover if the NO-contact move can be performed by their team. Download the checklist and prepare your list of items to be packed. The checklist will make it so much easier to control what still needs to get done before The Big Moving Day.
Packing your old set of plates that you have not used for ages might not seem such a big deal if you relocate across the street. Getting rid of it (and other things of such matter) for a long-distance move may cut the transportation costs in half. And add up some sash, which cannot be underestimated during the move. The fewer items you have to transport, the easier. Before you start packing, take a look around your house and consider what items you can say goodbye to. Be ruthless when deciding what to take and what to leave behind: donate, recycle, and if you hesitate – toss.
Celebrate the time you’ve downsized wisely, start packing. Remember, that packing for a long-distance move requires double care. Keep any items you still use every day on the surface of the chaos to easily find them. Label each box with the contents. Before the packing task, make sure you have enough soft packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape, and of course – enough cardboard boxes of various sizes.

Before moving, contact your utility company and confirm that they will be able to set these up before or shortly after you arrive. Remember to shut off the utilities after you move out, too.

Alright! You seem to be fully prepared for your relocation. Surprisingly, the most depressing part of a moving process is unpacking and settling down at your new home after the move. It is mostly due to the unpacking procrastination that keeps holding you somewhere in between the I-still-miss-my-old-place and I-feel-like-this-is-a-home-of-my-dream. We know unpacking can make people go crazy with just the thought of having to find a place for every piece of belongings you moved into a new home with.
If you are the lucky one to fit your move not only in the middle of the world’s pandemic but also into the hottest spot of the hot moving season which is just about to start, you will appreciate some ideas of NO-Contact Move that is becoming a nice option for those who relocate in the pandemic.
If you ever thought packing is insane, check out some tips on packing and you’ll see that it is unpacking that can turn into an overwhelming process. How to stay calm while you are unpacking, in order to be organized? Here are our few tips to help you stay sane while unpacking.
Sure, you already labeled each box with its room of destination when packing, now ask your movers to unload accordingly. It will save you time and effort to unpack the numerous boxes with their destination room.
To get the best result try to plan the order for unpacking for each room. What keeps your entire apartment from becoming cluttered all at once is its full unpacking from the beginning to the very end. Remember the things you couldn’t pack until the very last moment in each room, those are usually the most important things to unpack first. Set a small housewarming party 10-14 days after your Moving date. That will not let you procrastinate too long and will keep you busy enough to stay tuned.
As soon as a box is emptied of all its stuff, put it aside and then recycle it. This will clear up much-needed space in your new home. Decide if you want your used boxes to be reused, recycled, or tossed away. Unfold the boxes and pile them either right in front of your place or in the garage if you have already arranged to have them picked up. That might not sound ecological at all, but getting rid of your used boxes is the best idea these days because the virus can stay up to 24 hours on the surface of the cardboard. Make sure you care about your health first.
A handy tip to note before you unpack is to think about what things you want in each room and how you want each room in your home to look like. If you have a clear picture in your mind about what you want, it will help you unpack with better accuracy and save yourself the tiredness of having to fit things unnaturally in a room.
When finishing the unpacking process buy some extra shelves or organizers if necessary. They are available in different sizes or shapes, so you can pick any based on your need and taste. After you’re done with unpacking, look around, and try to understand what you need to make your life more comfortable. Here are some ideas on what you might need right before your very first step into a new home.
