 Moving Without The Mayhem

You never know when you will have to sell your house and move to a new place, but unfortunately, that was what I was faced with a few years back. I realized that I was really having a difficult time making ends meet, and so I started evaluating my options. Moving and relocating was simple, and I was really focused on saving cash. I found a cheaper apartment that worked well for my needs, and I began cutting out extra expenses to pare down the spending. I wanted to start a new website all about moving without the mayhem, so I made this little blog.

3 Critical Tips For An Easier Long Distance Move

by Erika Bell

Have you been offered a job in another state? Are you thinking about turning the job down because you'll have to deal with packing up and moving to a new state? There are many good reasons for turning down a job offer but the actual move itself shouldn't have to be one. There are a number of things that you can do to help make the move easier on yourself and any family that will be moving along with you. Some of the most important things to do when planning your move include:

Find a moving company: It's possible to move on your own but this possibility is what makes so many people wary of moving. With a long distance moving company, you can have them do everything for you, from packing up your current home to unpacking when you've arrived. You can also choose to pack everything yourself if you need a little more control over your move. Regardless of which way you choose, you'll still be doing significantly less work than if you were to attempt to do the entire move on your own.

Make a checklist: It seems obvious but a lot of people forget to do this before they move. Make a checklist of everything that needs to be done in order for your move to be a success. This should include obvious things like contacting the long distance moving company but will also include things that are easily forgotten in the heat of the moment, like canceling a newspaper subscription or updating your mailing address with your bank. To make sure that you don't lose the list, you should make multiple copies. This may mean emailing it to yourself, writing or printing out a copy on paper, using an app, or whatever else you can think of doing. The more copies there are of the list the easier it will be on you in the future.

Buy extra boxes: Unless the long distance moving company you hire is going to provide boxes, you'll need to supply your own. This can be trickier than it sounds, however. Looking at your belongings, you might think that you'll need 3 boxes for a particular room. But due to miscalculations or oddly-shaped items, you could wind up needing 4 or 5 boxes. Because of this, it's always a good idea to buy more boxes than you need. Doing this is better than risking running out of boxes at the last minute and being unable to get more.
