Moving and Packing Tips for a Long-Distance Move

If you're moving long-distance, this blog post is for you. We'll be covering everything from how to pack your clothes and what to do with your furniture in the coming weeks. We'll also tackle common questions that come up in a long-distance move like whether or not it's worth getting new furniture in the new city, how much stuff should you bring when moving cross country, and if it's better to rent a moving service or drive across country ourselves.

Hire Full-Service Movers
Hiring a full-service mover is one of the easiest ways to make your long-distance move go smoothly. When you hire professionals using - cross country moving companies are available for budget friendly prices and with the full service move which includes packing, loading, transport, and unpacking your goods, you are guaranteed peace of mind. All you have to do is show up on moving day, sit back, relax, and know that everything is taken care of. Movers can also provide quotes before they arrive at your home or office, which will help give you an idea of the cost of the move.

Keep a list of all the items you need to pack
It's a pain to keep track of everything you need for your cross-country move, so make this list especially with those pesky details in mind. The easiest way to pack for a trip is by keeping an itemized list. If you’re moving for the first time, don’t hesitate to reach out to a dumpster rental company and begin to declutter everything that you are no longer in need of in your new home. In order not to have any extra stress on your day, make sure you print out each of these items and put them all in one place, so there are no surprises when it comes time to leave! While it's tempting to start throwing your belongings into boxes, this is not the best approach. If you have a lot of stuff to pack, prepare yourself by making sure you have plenty of boxes and packing materials on hand before you begin. Make sure the items are clearly labelled, so you know which box they correspond with when it comes time to unpack in your new home.

Pack your clothes in suitcases and boxes, not garbage bags
It might seem like the easiest option to pack your clothes in garbage bags, but it will end up getting all wrinkled and lumpy if you don't put it properly once it's time to unpack. The best way to pack your clothes is by using suitcases and boxes. Suitcases are an excellent place for delicate items like silk or wool that don't want to be crushed or bulky items like shoes. They also make it easy to keep together all the outfits you've planned for your new destination.

Use bubble wrap for fragile items like dishes and glassware
When packing dishes, be sure to use bubble wrap or some other material that will cushion them during the move. This way, they won't get scraped or chipped during transit, which can happen if they are just packed in boxes. If you have any dishes with sentimental value, it's worth taking the time to find a good quality box to pack them in. Glassware is best kept in their original box for packaging- most likely, they will not fit into any standard-sized boxes due to their size and weight. Be sure that the items are labelled for easy unpacking once you arrive at your destination! Bubble wrap is excellent for keeping fragile items safe during the move. If you don't want to go out and buy bubble wrap, grocery store bags are an affordable alternative that can act as makeshift packaging for your dishes, vases, and other breakable items along the way.

Label each box with a big, bold letter or number to make unpacking easier
When you start packing, keep in mind that it's going to be nearly impossible to know which box contains the plunger and which one has your favourite cookbook. Unpacking can feel like an endless chore, so you don't want it to become a guessing game. Instead of hoping for the best and haphazardly labelling your boxes after they're full, write down the contents of every box as you fill them up. This way, if there is any confusion about what goes into each room of your new house, you'll know exactly where all your essentials are waiting. It's a lot easier to unpack when you know where everything goes because you can label the boxes with a big, bold letter or number. That way, once you start unpacking, it will be as easy as finding your box and putting it in its place! This may take some time, but it will make unpacking so much easier and quicker to do.

Moving from one place to another is always tricky, but it's not impossible. When you're moving long-distance, your life will change in many ways--from the new people and places that surround you to how much stuff of yours has to be packed up into a truck or airplane. There are tons of things about this process that can feel overwhelming. But don't worry! We have given some tips for packing smarter, so everything goes smoothly on move day.
