We are continuing our series on ways to help make your long distance move go smooth. Our previous article discussed decluttering, deciding on which items to keep with you during your travels and organizing and inventorying your belongings before the packers and movers arrive. Below are more long distance moving tips.
Select a Packing and Moving Company
If you are not going the moving truck rental / DIY route, selecting a reliable and dependable packing and moving company is the single most important aspect of a long distance move. Fly-by-night moving companies that are here today and gone tomorrow are everywhere. You want to select a moving and storage company with longevity, experience and a good reputation for handling long distance moves. 3 Guys Moving is a full service moving company that has been in business for more than three decades. Our movers and packers are experienced and we are licensed and insured. Not all moving companies have the track record and reputation we’ve worked hard to earn!
Be Ready When the Movers and Packers Arrive
Know ahead of time which items the movers and packers will be dealing with when they arrive. Have an inventory sheet and check off list ready so you can be sure nothing is overlooked.
Double Check Your Inventory Before the Movers and Packers Leave
It is a good idea to double check your inventory list before the movers and packers leave to make sure they have everything. This is especially important if you are leaving some items behind and/or taking some items with you as you travel to your new location.
