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 a holiday season 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.
