    10 Tips for Moving Cross Country

    Big long distance move in your future? Moving cross country can feel like an extremely daunting task. It can also be very exciting! Here are some things to consider as you prepare for your big move: 10 tips for moving cross country.

    1. Start planning right away – as soon as you know you’re moving you are going to want to start doing your planning homework. Cross country moves can be complicated, so start researching everything you can think of, from applying to new jobs, to reading moving company reviews.
    2. Get multiple moving estimates – never settle on the first moving quote you receive. Shop around and make sure you’re getting the best rate for the quality of service that you are seeking.
    3. Hire a reputable moving company – be sure not to choose a scam company or one with a bad reputation.
    4. Stay on a strict packing schedule – packing won’t be as overwhelming if you do it bit by bit.
    5. Pack smart – remember that your belongings are going on a long journey. Make sure all of your items are secure in the box.
    6. Sort belongings – moving is a great opportunity to get rid of unwanted belongings. Donate what you are no longer using.
    7. Prioritize items that you will need – don’t pack away anything that you will need in the days before moving day, or items that you will want to keep with you on hand.
    8. Clearly label all boxes – put your name on each box and label what is in each for easy organization and access on the other end.
    9. Let the professionals take care of it – don’t attempt to move or rearrange heavy furniture. Moving teams have the necessary expertise and equipment.
    10. Have fun! Whether you are driving your own car cross country or taking a plane and meeting the movers on the other side – moving to the other side of the country is an exciting endeavor!
