Long distance relocation requires a lot of forethought. These types of moves may have delayed arrivals, long or short term storage necessities, professional and familial obligations, road conditions or a multitude of other trying scenarios. Relocating over a long distance also means that you’re without a home— away from most your belongings for a longer period of time that you might prefer. Because long distance relocation is trying of your family, organization and time, we’ve supplied you with a few tips to help you relocate successfully and return to normalcy in no time.

  1. Appliances. Clean out the refrigerator and other appliances thoroughly before you move. Even if you think your fridge is clean, it probably could use an extra cleaning. When you repack your fridge you can put food right inside without spending time during the move in for example.

  2. Organize The Cords. Your television, cable box, speakers and gaming console may be connected in a complex ways.Take a photographs of your wiring chaos and save time when setting up your devices again. Surely you’ll forget how they were with so much time in between relocation.

  3. Screws and Bolts. Purchase some plastic bags if you have to unscrew a number of items in your household. Keep the screws and bolts in these plastic bags so you can put together beds, desks and the like without missing a screw or trying to locate a new hardware store.

  4. Label All Boxes. This is common sense, but marking your boxes with clear words might help you recognize where certain boxes go to be unloaded faster. In this way things won’t need to be moved twice. That will save you a lot of time.

  5. Pack Efficiently. Fit everything in organized boxes. Fill them to capacity (be careful of weight) the fewer boxes the better and the less time it will take bring them inside.

  6. Pack An Overnight box. The first night in your new home can be stressful. Think of this first night box as your rescue kit. Pack the essentials that you’ll need after a long move. When you arrive at your new place you’ll have everything you need and will stress less knowing you won’t have to search for these things crazily when you need them most.

  7. Try To Move during the week. Although this isn’t absolutely necessary, moving during the week means that the majority of mechanic and tow services (in case of an accident) are open to help in an emergency. When the weekend comes, you’ll have time to settle into your new home and wash off the long relocation time.

  8. Unpack the Television Last. Unless Superbowl Sunday is on, don’t bring that tub out. Relax your mind body and soul with a complete moving job the sooner you finish the important things the sooner you can decompress after the long relocation.

  9. To-do List. Make a to-do list, just be certain that all your goals are achieved and you didn’t forget anything along the way. Setting small goals and checking them off as you go is a great way to stay on top of a chaotic time.

  10. Helping Hand. After you move in, you may need more than a person or two for help. If you have friends that like giving a helping hand, ask them. Long distance relocation requires you to be cognizant of address and billing changes. You can worry about those things more clearly if someone gives you a hand to do the heavy lifting.
