Are you gearing up for a long distance relocation? Do you feel overwhelmed deciding where to even begin with the planning process? Metropolitan Van is here to help! At Metro Van, we know that any size relocation is a big undertaking, and that’s even truer when you are moving a long distance.
It’s the top priority of our Bay Area long distance movers to help you transition to your new home as easily as possible, and that all begins by making a plan for tackling the task of moving! Check out the following tips to get a head start on the process:
Make a Pre-Move Checklist
Whether you are typically a “list maker” or not, having a checklist for everything you need to accomplish during the moving process is a necessity. As soon as you know that you’ll be making a move, start writing down a master list of everything that needs to be accomplished and check it off as you go along!
Hire Experienced Bay Area Movers
While saving costs by planning a DIY move can sound appealing, it inevitably leads to a lot of avoidable stress and frustration. Instead of taking on the project yourself, choose a professional team of San Francisco Bay movers to handle the in-depth coordination (and even packing!) for your upcoming relocation.
Gather Quality Materials or Request Packing Services
What you pack your belongings in makes a big difference—especially when they are being transported a long distance. Don’t skimp on quality moving materials! Choose sturdy, stackable boxes, plastic totes, and bubble wrap to ensure that your items arrive safely at your home in one piece.
Set-up Services at Your New Home
The logistics of planning a household move go beyond just packing and loading a moving van. You also need to handle setting up schools, doctors, insurance, and utilities at your new location. Use your moving checklist to keep track of who you need to call, and get an early start to cut down on the risk of a last-minute scramble.
Get Your Family and Friends Involved in Your Move!
There’s no doubt about it—everything is easier with some extra hands on board! In addition to your hired Bay Area movers, enlist your loved ones to give you a hand with the tough job of moving. From packing and cleaning to watching the kids on moving day, there are countless tasks that your friends and family can help with to ease the process.
