Long distance moving tips
- Packing. Pack and sort out all your items room by room. It is advisable to downsize on what you don’t need to reduce your moving costs. You can plan to donate, sell or trash what you will not need in your new house. Ensure that you keep your fragile items together and label the boxes so that the movers can plan to handle them with care. Pack your mattress in a box so that it is not damaged or dirtied by the moving crew.
- Label your boxes. If you are not using the moving truck exclusively, it is advisable to label all your boxes with your name. Long distance movers consolidate items going along one route, which makes it cheaper for your move. However, this increases the possibility of your items being mixed up with another client’s items thus all your boxes must carry your name or a very unique identifier.
- Essential. Ensure that you don’t load any items that you will need at your new place before your shipment arrives to the moving truck. Prepare an essentials box for the items that you will need within the first one week of your move such as clothes, hand wash, body wash, cooking pots and cutlery.
- Inspect outdoor items. There are statutory regulations that have been set to ensure that you don’t transport contaminants across state lines. You are required to rid your furniture of any larvae, pests or moths.
- Insurance. Moving is a process that poses high risks to your property and yourself. It is thus important to plan for any eventualities that could befall your move. You can decide if you want to take the full value coverage or the basic coverage at only $ 0.60 per pound. You should ask your moving company to explain the difference between the two and based on the information you get, you can then make a decision.
- Delivery window. Long distance movers do not commit to a specific date so you need to ascertain the delivery window of your mover. Look at your contract to ensure that your delivery timelines are not more than 10 business days. Take adequate clothing and other things that you might need that can sustain you until the delivery window expires.
- Building move-in requirements. If you are moving into a rental, find out if they have any restrictions for movers. Where and when possible reserve parking spots or elevators in advance. Contact your building manager to find out if your building will be accessible on your preferred delivery dates.
- Non-allowable items. Movers have a list of non-allowable items as prescribed by the FMCSA. Many movers will not carry perishable items because they could go bad, spill onto your other property or attract pests that might damage other items.
