Planning a long distance move? At Olsen & Fielding, we understand how overwhelming interstate moving can be, and our goal is to simplify the process. From complimentary in-home estimates to providing our clients with helpful tips, we work hard to ensure a hassle-free relocation. Below, check out our top three suggestions to help you execute a successful long distance move.
Research Long Distance Movers
For the easiest, most efficient relocation, it’s important to choose Sacramento long distance movers with experience. Ask friends and family for recommendations, gather a list of names, then start doing your due diligence.
When researching a potential interstate moving company, look for things like BBB accreditation, van line affiliations, and membership with the American Moving and Storage Association. Olsen & Fielding is proud to be a California ProMover, a member of the American Moving & Storage Association, and an A+ rated, accredited member of the Better Business Bureau.
Put Together a Master To-Do List
Interstate moves are no easy feat. Between organizing, packing, and cleaning your new and old houses, it can be easy to forget important to-dos. Prior to your move, sit down and write a comprehensive list of everything you’ll need to do before, during, and immediately after your move. Some to-dos to add to your list include:
- Hiring professional movers
- Sorting through belongings and
deciding what to toss, keep, or donate before packing
- Obtaining important paperwork like
school and medical records
- Switching utilities so you have
power when you arrive
Pack an Essentials Box
When packing, set aside a box or two that will be kept with you at all times during your move. This box should contain everything you need on a daily basis and things you’ll need immediately after your move. Items to pack include:
- Prescription and over-the-counter medications
- Snacks and drinks for a long drive
- Paper and plastic products like
toilet paper, paper towels, plates, cups, and utensils
- Valuable jewelry
- Important documents like bank
books, passports, and birth certificates
