Moving across state lines requires a good amount of planning. Between coordinating moving timelines, packaging delicate items, and finding storage for household furniture—it can be easy to get overwhelmed! 

Avoid the stress and hassle that comes with a typical long-distance move by planning your relocation in advance. Several moving companies are booked to capacity during the summer, so it’s best to get started as early as possible. 

Choosing a Reliable Moving Company 

It’s also a good idea to choose a moving company that meets all licensing requirements needed to transport household items across state lines. Moving providers that are associated with a van line are sure to have all necessary licensing.

You should also look into customer reviews and any rewards or designations earned by the company. 

Making Your Move Efficient 

To save money on your move, try to combine the dates of leaving your current place of residence and arriving at your new home. 

By moving out and moving in on the same day, you'll guarantee your belongings won’t need to pass through storage. In case you do need storage services, make sure you ask your moving provider what kind of storage solutions they offer. 

Protecting Your Belongings 

All moving companies are required to provide free basic valuation coverage by law. Released value protection provides damage reimbursement to the customer based on the item’s weight—not an item’s worth! 

This is important to keep in mind, especially if you’re transporting antiques, fine jewelry, or art pieces. Consider getting full-value protection from your provider for your more expensive items. If your belongings are small enough, you can also transport them yourself to make sure they never leave your sight.

Choosing What to Transport

Moving is a great time to clean house. You don’t know just how much stuff you own until you have to move all of it! 

Consider giving away old clothes and selling unwanted furniture. Down-sizing before you move to your new place will alleviate some of the stress that comes with relocating—not to mention help you save on moving expenses.
