If you’re planning a long distance residential move this fall or winter, advance planning and hiring the right long distance moving company can make the difference between a safe move that goes smoothly and a disaster. Experience matters tremendously when it comes to long distance moving companies. The fact that a company is willing to drive where you need to go doesn’t always make them the best choice. Sound logistics and route-planning are mission-critical, so be sure you ask plenty of questions. Make sure you’re satisfied that your potential long distance moving company knows how to get the job done right, on-time and on-budget.
Plan For Your Family’s Needs On The Road
Once you’ve chosen the right long distance moving company for your move, think about what your family (including pets!) will need during your move. Start by considering whether you’ll need a hotel room or pet boarding and where it would be most convenient for you to use those services. If it’s likely to take all day to load your old house, you may want to book a local hotel and reserve local boarding for your pets. Will you need a hotel room on the road? Make reservations in advance, and ask about cancellation policies, in case you need to change plans at the last minute. You don’t want to be stuck driving around looking for accommodations, but you also want as much flexibility in your plans as possible!
Don’t forget to set aside any clothing, blankets, or pet gear you may need, and pack plenty of water and snacks for everyone to enjoy along the way.
Get Your New Home Utilities Turned On Early
When you set up water, power, and gas service for your new home, ask for them to be turned on a couple of days before you plan to arrive. These utilities typically don’t require that someone be home, and having them up and running from the moment you arrive will prevent any delays.
