4 of the Best Long Distance Moving Tips

July 14, 2021

Are you moving to a new city or province? This type of long-distance movecan become quite stressful if not managed correctly. That is why our team at Augusta Movers is here with the four best moving tips to make your move feel almost as if you were moving right across the street. 

Downsize & Donate When You Can 

Are you looking for a way to try and save some money when you move? The best way to do this is to try to downsize and declutter what you currently have in your home. Deciding on items you don’t need anymore can be difficult but if you can donate them to charity or give them to a friend, your mind can be at ease. As well, this can be a good idea if you want a new modern look or new colour scheme in your new home. 

Create an Organized List 

If you are trying to determine what the rate would be for your move, a list can come in handy to provide to your movers. This is because they will be able to use the list to give you a rough estimate of how much space your belongings will need and how much weight they would all be. Although moving companies understand you might happen to forget a few items on the list, the more accurate you can be the more precise they can give you a price. 

Make a Visit to Your New City 

Augusta Movers also wants to inform you to get to know the new city you are moving to before you move. This will make the overall transition of the move easier and it will help your new house feel more like home. Research the city and go sightseeing, visit local parks or museums, or check out some local restaurants. These types of activities will make your move much more enjoyable, we promise. 

Communicate With Your Moving Team 

A long-distance move can be overwhelming when you have a lot on your agenda to get ready and prepare. That’s why keeping an open line with your moving team is essential. Pick up and delivery dates are the most important dates to mark down on your calendar and confirm with your movers as lots can be happening at this time. Weather or mechanical issues can arise with the drivers so it’s always important to keep open communication so you know where your belongings are and when they will be picked up and dropped off.
