How To Prepare For A Long Distance Move

January 25, 2021

Are you planning to move into another home? If your answer is yes, then there are some important things to take into consideration before starting the move that will make the process that much easier. When it comes to long distance moves, there are specific things you should know about, and we here at Augusta Movers will be explaining them below. 

Plan in Advance 

In order to have a successful and fully organized move, proper planning is extremely important prior to starting a move. Talk to the family, roommates or significant other you are moving in with about how it is going to be executed. Also make sure to put together a proper list of things to get done so you can stay on track. You can make the workload easier on yourself by ensuring that each member who is moving out along with you is getting an equal amount of tasks. 

Get Rid Of What You Do Not Need 

We understand that it can be hard to let certain items go, but it really helps to get rid of the insignificant items before moving. Any furniture, clothes or items that are getting old can be taken to a thrift store or put to the garbage to open up opportunities for newer, cleaner items that add style to your new place. Getting rid of things you don’t need is also a great opportunity to give your home a good, proper clean. At the end of the day, this step will help you in many aspects including budgeting, convenience, efficiency and cleanliness. 

Keep Important Items With You 

Adding onto the previous point, it is crucial that you keep the items deemed as important with you. Forgetting items such as medical documents, banking info, or any type of private information is never a good time, as these can not be easily replaced. If you make sure to keep these things close to you during the move, you’ll be aware of their location at all times, ensuring you that they are safe and not being left anywhere they shouldn’t be. 

Colour Code and Mark Your Boxes Accordingly 

When you organize your boxes in this way, it makes the moving process much easier than normal. It will not only make the moving out process easier, but it will also make the moving in process easier as well. Finding things will not be seen as a hassle, and more importantly you will be able to find specifically what you are looking for and what takes priority when unpacking. 

Sleep Well The Night Before 

The moving process can be extremely exhausting on both the body and mind. That is why it is important to get a good night’s sleep before the move-in/move-out day. This way, you will be completely energized to start the moving process with ease and excitement.  


Set A Budget 

This tip seems quite obvious, but you may be surprised to know that many people either skip this step, or not do it properly. Before you start a move, you need to budget in order to make sure you’re not overspending when it comes to your move. Move-in’s can be a pain in the back, but they can also become a pain in your wallet if you don’t be careful.
