How to Get Organized for a Long Distance Move

Moving is stressful enough when you are moving across town. But if you are moving across the state, that can sometimes add even more complications to the process. 1st Choice Movers offers moving services in the Twin Cities, and we can even help you with your move from one side of the state to the other. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while you are getting organized and ready for your moving day.

One of the best things you can do is start going through your belongings as soon as you figure out where you are moving to and as soon as you have a timeline in mind. A lot of moving services charge by weight, so the less you have to move, the more budget-friendly your move will be. You should sort everything into three piles: keep, throw away or donate. Go through room by room and take some time to tackle this time-consuming task. While it will definitely involve a lot of work on your part, it will pay off in the long run.

Speaking of timelines, you should sit down and think about your moving schedule and when certain chores need to be completed. Write all of this out on a calendar so you can keep track of what you have done and what needs to be done. For example, one of your first tasks should be booking moving services like 1st Choice Movers. The sooner you call us to book us, the more likely it is we can help with your move.

When it comes to packing your valuable and fragile items, be sure to use plenty of packing paper and bubble wrap. Moving services like 1st Choice Movers can move these items for you, but we often recommend that you move them yourself if possible.

Finally, consider where you are moving from vs. where you are moving to. Make sure there is plenty of room for our moving truck and our moving services team to park and move your items. We will provide protection for flooring and other parts of your home. And we will always do our best to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible.
