How to Prepare for a Long Distance Move
At Interwest, we are becoming one of the leading names in long distance moves. Besides our excellent service and rates, we know that a long distance move is a cooperative effort. But it shouldn’t be uninformed or slapdash, because of this we have compiled this list for you of ‘How to prepare for a long distance move!’
How to PREPARE for a Long Distance Move
Plan for the Date – The most important thing you can do is prepare for the period. Make sure you have your transfers in or your days off. You don’t want anything at all to get in the way of your move or possibly disrupt the flow of the moving process.
Separate Your Most Prized Possessions – The next, arguably most important thing about the whole ordeal is to pack your most valuable belongings. No matter how good a moving service is, there will always be the possibility of an accident and the best way to avoid that is to isolate the things that are most important and hold them in such regard.
Prepare for the Journey – The final thing you will need to do before your big day is to prepare for all the little things in your journey. When will you stop, where will you sleep? Basic Road Tripping 101. Find all of the things you won’t want to pay for on the road. You will want to buy anywhere from 24-32 bottles of water and keep them in the back of your car.
What to do the day of!
Relax – Once the day happens you need to relax. If you’ve hired a high-quality moving company, only rest as best as you can before the big move and just hang out with the people you’ll be sharing space with for several days. Relaxation is key because if you freak, other people will freak too.
Communicate – Remain in constant contact with your movers. For the most part, you will both be going your way, but if either of you gets lost or pulls over, you should know about it. Coordinate breaks together and just talk to each other.
Be Reasonable – There will be tons of unforeseen problems along the way. If a tire blows, if you run low on money, have engine problems, anything at all that can be a problem can be reasonably handled.
