How to Create a Detailed Budget for Your Move from NYC to Denver

Completing a cross-country move is doubtlessly one of the most complicated tasks a person can take on. From when you first start packing to the moment you arrive at your new home, there’s rarely a relaxed moment throughout the entire process.
At nearly 1,800 miles, the trek from NYC to Denver is no joke, particularly with your entire life in tow. To avoid unexpected surprises that could place additional stress on the move, here are a few things to consider that will help you create a detailed budget as your prepare for your big move to the Mile High City.

Prepare for Inclement Weather

You’ve probably heard that you should always ‘expect the worst, hope for the best’ and that phrase couldn’t hold more true for planning a moving budget. Though some weather concerns are variable depending on the season, a cross-country move like that from NYC to Denver is bound to run into its fair share of weather hiccups.
Because of the fact that it may be snowing and icy in Colorado, or severely storming in the Midwest, assume that interstate moving will take longer than you think. Account for extra gas and food money should you need to duck out of bad weather during your journey to Denver.

Create a Schedule and Stick to It

Establishing a clear schedule will give you a firm figure in terms of how much you’ll have to spend on lodging throughout the journey, and how much gas you’ll be using each day. This will also allow you to hit certain areas at a pre-planned time if you want to make dinner reservations, or plan any outings to break up the drive.
Taking into account the tip mentioned above, pad this schedule with some extra time in case of an emergency or impediment. Even if you don’t wind up needing that additional time, it will allow you a few extra hours to relax and unwind amidst the stress of your move.

Hire a Reputable Moving Company

The only way to budget for long distance movers is to know how much you’ll have to pay them. Do business with a company who offers a free quote up front, and see how that quote fits in with your ideal budget. Receiving a free quote won’t be an issue if you’re in contact with a quality company.
Additionally, remember that there’s a significant distance between New York and Denver, so do your due diligence if a deal that sounds too good to be true. Make sure the moving company you choose is both affordable and trustworthy so you’re not stuck with a budget-busting bill once the move is over due to surreptitious fees that weren’t mentioned in the first place.

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…
