5 Things To Consider Before Moving Cross-Country

5 Things To Consider Before Moving Cross-Country

Any move is a big decision, but deciding to move yourself, your family, and your belongings to another state is major. There are many things to consider before moving cross-country, including finances and how well you’ll acclimate to the environment. Whether you’re moving for a job or a change of scenery, let this guide help you make the transition easier.

Start Packing as Soon as Possible

Begin packing before you think you’ll need to. The sooner you begin the process, the less stress you’ll feel as you approach your moving date. Further, your movers will appreciate it if you have all your boxes taped up and ready to go before they arrive.

Upgrading vs. Downsizing

As you pack for your new place, decide which items from your current home you’ll need in your new one. If you’re moving to a smaller space, you’ll need to downsize and get rid of bulky items and clutter. At the same time, upgrading to a larger space may mean you’ll need larger items. Get rid of items that aren’t worth paying someone to move.

Career Opportunities

Before you decide where to move, consider the opportunities that will be available for you wherever you go. Consider your career—or the one you want—and choose a city or area that will accommodate your dreams.

Move in the Off-Season

Most people move during the summer, so you can save money by moving during the off-season. Though winter is not ideal, moving rates may be the most economical then. Fall and spring are good times to move if you schedule around colleges.

Hire a Reputable Moving Company

Many long-distance moving companies in New York book up fast. If you want to hire a reputable moving company, you should call to schedule your move as soon as you know you’re moving. Don’t wait until the last minute and expect companies to have your preferred date and time available.

The main things to consider before moving cross-country are the amount of time it takes and how much help you’ll need. Get in contact with the professionals at Simply Moving as soon as you start making plans to relocate.

On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

Great group of MOVERS.

The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
