Essential Long Distance Moving Tips In Los Angeles

A long distance move is a big event that has to be approached with an action plan to make sure everything goes smoothly. Moving is often viewed as a stressful event, but this checklist is a tool to help remove any concerns.

One of the first things to do when planning a long distance move is to clear time in your schedule to handle the move. Once the dates are set, it is important to start thinking about how the move will actually happen. Most of the time, a moving company is needed to help transport all belongings and valuables to the new destination safely. It is important to talk to moving companies in advance so that everyone can be filled in on what items are being moved and how they are being moved. Belongings like pianos, safes, and delicate items like art pieces will need special care which is better arranged in advance. Starting in advance will ensure that there are no hiccups in the moving process.

When the planning phase has passed, it is a good idea to start preparing belongings for the move. Packing things that are not often used is a good start so there is not an overwhelming amount of work closer to moving day. Things like books, most clothes, and kitchenware can be packed well in advance. If the process is gradual, it will not seem to be as difficult as it is made out to be. Another option in regards to packing is having a moving company do the packing for you. Moving companies have a lot of experience packaging things well so they stay safe during transit. They will have the materials necessary and their work will be insured, giving you peace of mind. If you do the packing yourself, there is the potential for things to break with no way to recover the damages.

The final and most important tip is to clean and dispose of unnecessary items as you pack. This is something that will work better if you start to prepare for your move in advance. As the packing and cleaning happens, you may find items in the deepest crevices of your home that you have never used and have forgotten you have. It may be a good idea to get rid of these items. Some options are having a yard sale to make a little extra profit, donating items to goodwill, or simply throwing unusable items away. This will clear up a lot of space and translate to a lower cost for the move and you will have less packing and unpacking to do.

These steps are basic, but if they are followed, the move will be stress free and easy. The key is to start in advance and take care of the key aspects of setting up transportation and packing and your long distance moving experience will be far removed from the horror stories we often hear.
