Preparing for a cross country move? Unlike a local move, moving across the country can be a bit more involved, and can have yo separated from your household goods for quite some time. Hopefully, you’ve given yourself plenty of time to prepare and plan for your upcoming cross country move. While a cross country relocation is a big move with a lot to consider and coordinate, we’ve got some tips to keep you sane and organized so you can handle your big move like a pro!
Now Is The Time To Start
When should you prepare for your cross country move? The answer to that is now! The key to a successful cross country move is a lot of careful planning and foresight. With so many tasks to be checked off your moving to-do list, it’s never too early to begin the process of moving. Take plenty of time, and use an open mind while you walk through your entire home to decide exactly what you want to be moved with you, and what will be discarded or donated. Keep in mind that your moving company will charge you by the weight of your household items being moved, for many of us, that’s enough motivation to purge unnecessary items. The things you won’t be needing immediately after your move are the ideal items for your first few boxes to be packed.
Bring Important Items With You
While your household items are traveling across the country, you won’t want certain important documents and items travelling across the country without having immediate access to them. Make a list of documents that you would not want to lose, and/or that you think you’d need during and immediately after your move. Examples of such items are passport, birth certificate, insurance papers, auto registration, and valuable jewelry.
