Planning a long distance move? While the thought of packing, loading, transporting, unloading, and unpacking your entire home may be stressful, the process itself doesn’t have to be. When you work with the experienced long distance movers at Mont-Rose Moving Systems, moving your home will never be easier. We want to be sure our customers have all of the information they need for a successful relocation, so we’ve rounded up tips on how best to prepare for a long distance move. 

Plan Ahead

Proper planning and preparation are essential to any relocation, but they become particularly important when you’re moving a long distance. If you’re moving during the summer months, the busiest time of year for professional moving companies, you’ll want to secure your move date as far in advance as possible to ensure you don’t end up struggling to find reputable movers at the last second.

Choose Experienced Movers

The best way to guarantee a smooth, stress-free relocation is to choose a reputable and reliable long distance moving company with plenty of experience.  The long distance movers at Mont-Rose Moving Systems have been providing professional moving services to residential and commercial customers for 30 years, making sure your move is easy and efficient.

Declutter Your Home

One of the most helpful ways to prepare for a long distance move is to declutter your home. Go through your home room by room and identify any items that are broken or that you no longer use or want. Separate these items into three categories:  toss, keep, and donate/sell. Removing all of the unwanted belongings from your home helps you avoid packing things that you won’t use in your new home, saving you time and money in the long run.

Pack an Essentials Box

While most of your home will be packed into boxes and left in the hands of your moving professionals, there are some items that you should keep near you during your relocation. Your essentials box should consist of items that you know you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new home and may include:

  • Clothing

  • Paper Towels

  • Toilet Paper

  • Toiletries

  • Utensils

  • Cups

  • Plates

  • OTC and Prescription Medications
