Moving to a new home, in a new state? It’s an exciting activity but also a lot of work. Don’t let the tedious task of packing up drain you out, however. Here are three services that can help make moving a seamless effort from beginning to end.
Always check with moving companies how they bill an interstate or long distance move. Long distance moving quotes indicate the billing method and any labor cost difference based on labor rates at the starting and end points of the journey. And as long distance moves are billed by total weight of the cargo and how far the distance is, it would be wise to let go of stuff you won’t really need and bring only the essentials with you. This will reduce the weight of your cargo and the cost of the service.
Availing of this service may sound like a luxury, but the truth is you need it. All you need to is trim down your belongings, and the rest will be taken care of by the movers. You don’t need to source for packaging materials, which actually takes a lot more work than the actual packing itself. Get a head start by picking the items you need to pack yourself by doing a room a day. This gives you enough time to round up the things you no longer need and sort them into items for donation and disposal, so these don’t have to count towards your bill.
If you have items assigned for re-homing with friends or family, renting a storage facility is the best way to hold your belongings until they’re ready to be picked up by their new owners within the rental period. This way, you can have everything boxed up and labeled accordingly in a central pick-up hub.
Relocating doesn’t have to be stressful. By hiring a trustworthy team of professional movers, you get the job done in a timely manner. You also get the assurance that your move is done efficiently and hassle-free.
