Tips For Moving Long Distance - packing

There are numerous clever tricks you can use to pack your belongings efficiently. Wrap your clothes in dresser drawers if that makes sense in your situation. There should be no empty space in boxes.

Items should be packed inside of each other. Place your silverware, for example, inside your Tupperware. Wrap linens and towels in black trash bags and use them to pad boxes.

It may not be glamorous, but it is a great way to be efficient, and efficiency is essential when preparing for a big move.

3) Take heed when hiring movers:

If at all possible, keep sentimental items and valuables, such as jewelry, with you. Have valuable items insured if you aren’t moving them yourself.

Remember to label boxes with your name and address, as many large moving companies will transport several families’ belongings on a single large truck.

4) If possible, drive your car:

Make a trip to the county (or state). Shipping a car can be costly and time-consuming. Many shipping companies wait until they have a large number of cars to move before loading and transporting your vehicle. Being in a new city without transportation will quickly become extremely frustrating.

5) Be prepared to buy some new things:

When moving into a new home, as with every relocation, there are always things you will unavoidably require. Consider a fresh dish drainer, a silverware caddy, a paper towel holder, and other comparable products.

Be prepared and set aside some money for these purchases. You don’t want to make the relocation more stressful by stressing about buying the tiny items you’ll need to furnish your home.

6) Be patient and give it a week or two:

There is more to settling into a new community than only moving into your new home. You need to emotionally settle in as well. To truly feel at home in your new community, it will take a few weeks.

Learn about the area and go exploring. If you have patience, you’ll quickly feel at home.
