Long distance moving is often a daunting, complicated and fairy expensive affair. Following are some helpful tips that can help to completely change your relocation experience and make it much less stressful.

The Importance of Starting Your Process Early

This may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised to learn how many people wait until the last minute to begin their long distance moving preparations. By starting your preparations early, at least four-to-six weeks in advance, you will lower both the stress levels and the price of the move. Especially during the highly busy summer months, last minute moves will be more expensive. Contacting your movers early will also allow you enough time to do some self-packing, helping you in further reducing moving costs.

Packing and Packing-Related Issues

As mentioned above, self-packing can help in reducing the moving costs. Ask your moving and relocation service if you can purchase packing materials and have them delivered to your doorstep. Pack a few boxes each day and start your packing preparations at least two weeks prior to the moving date.

Utilizing your Relocation Service Provider to Lower Costs

Keep in constant contact with your moving and relocation service provider. Providing timely updates can help you in avoiding price increases. If you are purchasing additional items, especially if a long distance move is involved, be sure to update your relocation consultant immediately. To try and further lower your moving costs, try to hold a garage sale, or donate some of your unwanted items to a charity organization.
