Avoiding Mistakes For Cross-Country Moving

Moving a short distance is one thing, but moving long distance is a completely different ballpark. This type of move requires a lot more preparation, planning and organization in order for everything to go off without a hitch (even more so by hiring a long distance moving company). So you can be certain your items are being moved safely, all while enjoying your new home. Since mistakes can be made more with long distance moves, we here at Augusta Movers want to discuss the common ones and how they can be avoided.

Pack Early 

When it comes to any sort of preparation, “the earlier the better” is always the way to go. When you plan things for last minute because you haven’t organized your time effectively or booked moving services too early, you are at a much higher risk to run into complications that can either A. Interfere with your move or B. Completely delay it altogether. This, consequently, adds more stress and effort onto your plate that you otherwise do not need during this time. To avoid all of this chaos, be sure to pack all of your belongings early. This way, you can have all of your non-necessities ready to move and you can spend little time packing the last bits that you’ve had to use in your home before you leave. 

Plan Your New Homes’ Layout  

We understand that this isn’t always possible, but when it is we highly recommend it. Figuring out the overall blueprint of your new space and planning item placements accordingly will make your move that much quicker and easier. After all, there’s nothing quite more confusing and stressful than entering a new home with a bunch of stuff and no initial plan to put it anywhere. Things can get messy and unorganized quite quick, so making a layout plan beforehand is highly advised.  

This will not just help with your peace of mind, but will also benefit your movers as well. Being able to point and direct team members to certain sections of your home with items and furniture makes it less of a tiring and physically straining job for you.  

Always Have a Box With Essentials 

Moving into a new home with a planned layout structure is great, but what about having a hold of your home necessities? If you forget this step, it often ends up in you tearing all of your boxes apart to find the things you need to use for the days you’re finalizing your move. To avoid this, we suggest you pack a box with things such as: 

  • Linen for your bed 
  • Toilet paper 
  • Paper towels 
  • Disposable plates & utensils (plastic/paper) 
  • Toiletries (such as shampoo, face wash, deodorant, etc.) 
  • Soap 
  • Garbage bags 
  • Towels 

In many ways, you can look at it as a “going away” list; kind of like a list you’d use when you’re going away to a cottage. Packing all of these necessities into one box that you bring with you to the home will ensure that you’re covered for the few days you will be setting up your new place. It also saves you money that you’d otherwise spend buying all of these items if you can’t find them in your moving boxes.
