Whenever you are faced with a situation that puts you moving across the country, it can be stressful. Not only is it a completely different part of the country, but there are also quite a few logistics that need to be figured out. Anytime you are relocating all of your belongings as well as your family, it takes quite a bit of planning. Good Time Moving & Storage is here to share some tips to help your long-distance move go as smoothly as possible.
Avoid Peak Moving Season
Did you know that there is a moving season? The summer months are by far, busier as far as moving is going. Many people want to get moving out of the way before a new school year gets started. If you can move during months outside of the summer, you will end up saving a considerable amount of money. The months between September and May are going to be your cheapest months to move.
Declutter & Purge Before a Big Move
As you start going through your things and get packing, this is a great time to get rid of the things that you don’t use. As a general rule, you can throw away or donate items that you haven’t used in the last year. If you aren’t wanting to donate or throw away, you can also have a garage sale to make a few extra dollars in the process.
Be Thorough when Packing to Move
As you pack your belongings, you may feel like you will be able to remember what you have placed in what box. However, for most people, they aren’t going to see those boxes for several days or even weeks before they are unloading them into their new place. This is why it is more important than ever to label your boxes very thoroughly. You will be glad you made a list of all the things that are in those boxes when you get them unpacked and into the rooms they need to be in.
Saying Goodbye to Good Neighbors when Moving
No matter how long you have been in your current location, it will be packed with memories good and bad. While moving can be exciting, take the time to soak in all the memories you have made in your current location. Don’t get too sad about saying goodbye, as this is a time to prepare for what’s to come.
