Did you recently get a job in another city or another state? Want to move back to where you’re from to be near family as you raise your kids? Or, are you just looking for a new adventure, and that means relocating to somewhere exciting or fresh?
Whatever the reason, planning for a long-distance move can be exciting and inspiring. However, there are also many logistics to consider along the way, and creating a solid moving plan can help to mitigate stress and ensure that things go smoothly on moving day. As such, here are some tips for planning for a long-distance move:
One of the most important things that you should plan for when thinking about a long-distance move is that of securing housing early. There is nothing worse than picking a moving date only to be scrambling to find a place to live as the date approached. Pinning down housing early will also provide benefits in other ways, too, namely that you can start planning for how much space you’ll have for all of your personal belongings.
You may be thinking, “But I have months until I move!” and therefore not stress about packing in advance. But time flies, and before you know it, your move date will be upon you. Get ahead of the move by starting to get organized and get packed now. Put items that you don’t use every day in boxes now, and make sure they are properly labeled. Also, start making piles of things that you want to donate, bring with you, or trash/recycle.
If you’re planning to move, you’ll need a truck rental. Just like securing housing, renting a moving truck isn’t something you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to do. Waiting until the last moment to reserve your rental truck could result in a dearth of truck rental availability.
