Long Distance Movers

If you are moving across the state or even the country, long distance movers can help ease the process. Instead of feeling extra stressed trying to pack everything into your vehicles or borrowing cars from friends and family, hire long distance movers to do the hard work for you. We can free up your time so you can focus on the details of your move— like labeling items accurately, determining what order you would like your belongings packed in, and getting everything settled as far as school, work, and bills go at your new home. We hope these packing tips will make your experience even quicker and more enjoyable.

Pack Several Light Items in a Large Box

From our experience as long distance movers, we have learned that many people waste a lot of space with small boxes filled with light items. If you combine several light boxes or light items in one large tub or box, it will stack more easily into the truck, and you will have fewer items to keep track of. Don’t waste valuable space with knickknacks, but label a large box full of items instead.

Keep Prized Possessions With You

While we have plenty of experience keeping your belongings safe, we always recommend that our customers keep their most prized possessions in their personal vehicle. If items like old family photographs and videos, precious jewelry, and expensive technology are with you, you can better keep an eye on them and keep them out of the elements more successfully. You can also ensure that no one breaks into your vehicle to steal them.

Remove Breakables From Larger Pieces of Furniture

If you are moving a china cabinet or even a lamp, you may want to consider removing glass cabinets and light bulbs before packing the furniture in tightly. You can keep more fragile items like glass or fine wood in a designated area so it won’t get mixed in with more sturdy furniture like couches and fridges that could harm it.

Secure Your Pets

Pets get excited about moving too. As long distance movers, we have become accustomed to making new furry friends when we help our customers pack. We want your pets to be safe, so instead of allowing your dogs (or cats) to run around excitedly, risking getting hit by the moving truck or tripping someone who is carrying a heavy object, tie them up or take them in a room where the door can be closed to protect them.
