Your Cross Country Moving Checklist
Planning is of the utmost importance when it comes to moving and the earlier you’re able to start, the better. To make the planning stages easier, Liberty Movers offers the following helpful tips for moving cross country:
- Determine What Type of Move You Want: DIY moving cross country is certainly not easy, but it can be done. Before you decide between professional movers and doing it yourself, make sure to consider all the costs associated with a DIY move, some of which include fuel, lodging during the move, wear and tear on your vehicle, and truck rental prices.
- Hire a Moving Company: If you want to make your move as hassle-free as possible, choose a professional moving company with experience. Get in contact with potential movers as early as you’re able to make sure they are available on the date or dates you need them.
- Sort Through Your Items: Even with full-service moving options where you don’t have to lift a finger, you still don’t want to move items you know you won’t need at your new home. Before your relocation, take a full inventory of your belongings and decide what to keep, what to donate or sell, and what to throw away.
- Pack Properly: While it’s always important to make sure you’re using strong, sturdy boxes when moving, it’s crucial when you’re traveling a long distance. Be sure to invest in quality moving supplies so you know your items will be safe during transport.
