Create a Plan (as Soon as You Can!)

Once the decision has been set in stone, it’s time to get started with your moving project. Begin by creating an organized moving plan, filled with dates for starting and finishing the various tasks before it’s time to move.

If you’re unsure of what needs to be done, and how long each task might take to complete, reach out to a local, reputable moving company like Quality Moving & Storage for assistanceOur team provides our customers with free, in-home evaluations and pricing estimates for moving services, along with a detailed moving timeline and calendar that’s personalized to meet your requirements.

Take Inventory of Your Belongings

While you’re packing and preparing for your long-distance move, it is advisable to make an inventory list of all your belongings. Once you’re moved in, you can use this checklist to make sure that all of your belongings are accounted for—especially if you’re using a moving company to assist you with the transition.

Make Detailed Travel Plans in Advance

It’s important to know exactly what the plan is on moving day—whether you’re driving long-distance, flying to your new home, or making other arrangements. Have hotel reservations, plane tickets, and all other important plans ready to go well before moving day, in order to create a solid moving budget that accounts for all aspects of the trip.If you’re moving with other members of the family, like children or pets, make sure you know what their travel plans are as well. Some families prefer to leave their children with trusted family members on the day of the move or to enlist the service of a pet shipping company to help with pets. In either case, it’s important to organize these details with a carefully coordinated and well-planned strategy long before moving day arrives.

Obtain Multiple Estimates from Moving Companies

Long-distance moving is not an easy task, so make sure that you do everything to find the most suitable moving company you can hire. To be able to obtain quality service at the best price, you should get in-home estimates from at least three companies and compare. Do this at least a month before your planned date of moving, but keep in mind that even earlier is betterMake sure that the company you hire provides in-home estimates that are personalized to suit your needs, rather than one-size-fits-all prices and solutions that are not tailored to each customer. While many inefficient or unprofessional companies lure customers in by offering cheap prices and impossibly low, flat rates, keep in mind that these are often scams designed to charge unassuming customers even more money in the long-run, through added fees and overly complicated contracts. 

HirReliable Long Island Long-Distance Movers

After obtaining in-home estimates from different nationwide movers, compare rates and the range of potential services they can provide. It’s important to note that you should consider the quality of service the company provides by evaluating their online profiles, web pages, and customer reviews on third-party websites like Yelp, Angie’s List, and othersThis will allow you to understand what the company provides, whether it’s a real, established company, and more about its local reputation—which will help you to avoid getting caught up in a scam.
