If you’re searching for a long distance mover, then you’ll probably have at least a few days worth of contact with the company, in which case it’s very important that the mover is responsive and helpful, because your things will be in the company’s storage, or on their tractor trailers traveling cross-country for several days.
Proper prior planning will reduce your stress before, during, and after your move, because you’ll have a timeline with a list of events that you can cross off in order as they are executed one by one. This will make your moving experience easy and enjoyable. You may also want to divide your inventory into 3 categories: items that the mover will handle, items you plan to handle yourself, and items you plan to give away. This will help your movers be more effective on the day of the move, because everything will be sorted and ready for them to pack, label, and load onto the truck. You can save money by doing the bulk of the packing yourself, and if you have any questions about how to go about packing and protecting your belongings, we are always glad to assist you with questions such as how to properly pack various items, how long it can take to pack your things, and what kind of packing materials you need in order to safeguard your belongings.

Ideally, you can make a one-day move, which involves packing your things, labeling them for inventory purposes, moving them to your new location, unloading at your destination, and unpacking everything into your new place.
