Moving from state to
state is difficult especially due to the logistics needed, as well as the sheer
distance involved in the move. It’s important for your own piece of mind that
you be able to achieve a smooth and efficient move to minimize extra payments
and fees as well as any damages or any other form of inconvenience that might
put a wrinkle in your already stressful move.
1. Make concrete plans
well before moving date
You need to make sure
that you have a plan before you start packing and looking for movers. Establish
a timetable for all the tasks that need to be done (as well as accounting for
any trouble you might run into) and stick to it.
2. Research your moving
Make a short list of
possible companies whose policies and fees work for you. Be sure as well, to
look out for companies with good feedback and adequate experience moving state
to state, especially moving to the new state your new home will be in. Evaluate
insurance policies and make sure that any damages sustain during transit will
be covered by the insurance policy.
3. Inventory your
It’s always important to
make a good and accurate inventory of your things so you can keep track of all
of them, including their conditions, so should they sustain any damage during
transport, you know. Making inventory will also help you unpack things faster
at your new home.
