Planning your interstate move and don’t know where to start?
Moving interstate can be overwhelming. Luckily, tips abound.
Here are 4 of the most crucial tips for moving interstate from San Francisco moving company, Cummings Moving Co.
OK, moving interstate can be very stressful and difficult and expensive — but it doesn’t have to be.
There are professionals that will make your interstate move easy breezy and stress-free.
#1 Plan your move meticulously
Before you plan your move, you’ve got to sort out what you’ve got to move. You’ve got a lot of sorting, packing, and disposing of items to do.
You will also need to make some arrangements with any subscriptions you may have and call to schedule for their disconnection. It’s best to do this months prior to your move.
To make things easier, have a moving checklist for the things you’ve got to do and work your way down until you get to the part where you have to hire an interstate moving company.
#2 Hire an interstate moving company
Moving interstate is just not one of those things that you cannot do yourself. There are big risks involved moving interstate and the last thing you need is an injury which will delay your move.
There’s also the costs of moving interstate if you do it yourself. Consider the price of the rented moving van, the cost of fuel, insurance, moving equipment, packing supplies, road tolls, parking, food and lodgings on the road.
Make sure to hire a trustworthy and reputable San Francisco moving company. The best San Francisco moving companies usually have excellent word-of-mouth recommendations.
#3 Find out how much your move will cost
Interstate moving companies do not charge by the hour. The cost will be calculated according to the total shipment weight, the distance of the move, and additional services you sign up for.
Total shipment weight– more items to move means a heavier weight and a higher cost. For this reason, it makes sense to bring only the essential items with you if you want to save on costs. This is why decluttering, sorting, and disposing of items no longer needed is the first step in this guide.
Total distance of move – You couldn’t change the distance between your present home and your new home, therefore this factor remains constant.
Added services – May include professional packing, disassembling and reassembling of furniture, etc.
#4 Get your new place ready before your move
Do you like your new place? Good. Does it need renovations or sprucing and cleaning up? If yes, then you’ve got to take care of renovations before your move-in date.
Any upgrades will prove to be challenging once all your stuff has been dropped off inside your new home or apartment.
