Long distance moves involve a significant amount of planning and labor to carry out smoothly. The hard work is worth it in the end even without the use of professional long distance relocation services. However, full service long distance movers can sure make the process much easier. At Berger Allied Moving & Storage, we are your premier relocation service provider when you are planning to move to a new state.
Below are some helpful tips for moving out of state:
Book Your Move Early
Start your search for a moving company early – weeks in advance – especially if you plan to move during the summer months.
Establish Your Moving Budget
Before you contact full service long distance movers, determine your budget. With a budget in hand, you can determine the best moving service package that will meet your needs.
Create an Inventory
Moving is an ideal time to assess your belongings and produce an inventory of all the times your mover will be transporting to your new destination.
Perform Due Diligence When Choosing a Moving Provider
Find out if the mover is properly licensed and has important certifications. Full service long distance movers must obtain special licensing from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) that gives them permission to move household items from one state to another. It is also beneficial to look through the reviews submitted by past customers of the moving company when you are evaluating movers.
Prepare for Life at Your New Home
Before you make it to your new home, there are a number of tasks to accomplish, such as making sure the utilities are turned on, finding new doctors, etc. Taking care of these items early enough will ensure you and your family are unprepared when you arrive.
