5 Tips for a Successful Interstate Move

Choosing the moving company and services you want to use for your interstate move is just part of the picture. To make your move go more smoothly, use these tips:

  1. Declutter. It costs money to move things, so cut down on the number of things that need moving! Donate or sell items you no longer use, and consider using Craigslist for furniture and other large items you don’t want to take. This tip not only lowers your cost of moving, but might make you some cash that will come in handy during your interstate move.
  2. Itemize and organize. About 6-8 weeks before your interstate relocation, go ahead and pack up items you won’t need until after the move — such as photo albums, off-season clothes, books and decorative items. Label each box well with the room and contents. This activity will give you a better idea of which additional packing boxes and materials you’ll need, so go ahead and order them at this point.
  3. Prepare for your new home and clean the old one. 4 weeks or so before moving day, arrange to have the utilities and cable turned off at your old home and turned on at your new home. If you rent, do some deep cleaning as you pack so you have your best chance at getting your deposit back.
  4. Close accounts, transfer mail and service the car. A week or two before moving day is a good time to cancel your local gym membership and other local accounts and memberships. You can also go ahead and fill out the mail forwarding form at the post office or online. And if you’ll be driving your car during your interstate move, be sure it’s ready by getting it serviced and checked.
  5. Pack valuables and necessary items for the move. If an item is small, fragile or very valuable, we recommend that you transport it to your new home. Pack your jewelry and antiques and plan to take them in the car with you if possible, as well as suitcases packed with what your family will need while on the road.

An interstate move is no time to leave tasks until the last minute, and these tips will help you prepare for your move in a more manageable and systematic way. Need more help? Give us a call to get answers to your burning questions, including a free moving quote!
