If you are doing a long distance move, you may not want to do it all yourself. Trying to drive a moving van across the country while dealing with pets or kids or pulling a car can be difficult. There are other ways that you can handle your cross-country move. That's to hire a moving company to do it for you. If you are going to use a moving company, there are things that you can do to make your move easier.
Pack Your Fragiles
If you are going to have the moving company pack up your house for you, then you may want to pack up your fragile items before the moving company gets there. That way you can pack them up the way that you want so that you can do everything you can to make sure that they don't break while you are moving. If you are going to do that, you need to make sure that you have plenty of protection for your breakable item by using a lot of packing material, like bubble wrap.
List the Boxes
When your stuff is being packed, you want to know what things are in what boxes. That will make it easier for you to unpack and organize your new house. There are ways that you can do that. One is to make sure that your boxes are marked correctly. For example, you can mark each box as what room it is for and then mark what it's full of. You can mark a box as kitchen and then as plates, so you know what the box is and where it goes. Another way that you can do it is to create a master list. In this method, you could number the boxes and then write on your list what it is. Instead of marking your box is kitchen and glasses, you would put K1 on your box. Then, on your master list, you would list K1 as a box that goes into your kitchen and that it's full of your glasses. That way you don't have to worry about where the movers put the box when they get to your new house, you can just look at the number and your list and then move it to where it goes.
Moving across the country comes with its own issues. If you are going to do that, you may want to hire a moving company, like United Moving and Storage, to make your life easier. There are things that you can do that will make it easier.
