If you ever decided to call up a local Chesterfield VA moving company and move to state to state or across the country, just know that it will be a very different experience than moving down the street.  You're in for a big change of scenery as well as a different lifestyle potentially. All of that on top of the stress of actually moving can be overwhelming for most people. It pays to take stock of your situation sooner rather than later.


One sure way to make your long-distance move a strategic disaster is to misjudge which items are keepers and which ones aren't. From packing smart to knowing what to pitch, let's take a look at a few strategies for implementing a long distance move that won't make you wish you'd stayed put where life was dull but predictable. Don't cringe -- just yet. Moving is an adventure. All you need is a reliable plan.

Take Inventory


Chesterfield VA moving companies handling your long distance move will want to know how much stuff you have. The only way to truly know how much stuff you have is to make a list of all of it. An inventory list won’t just be helpful for getting accurate price estimates from Chesterfield VA movers; it will also help you stay organized while packing for your move.  Doing this will allow you to keep track of your items at all times during your long distance journey. If you check something off at the origin and destination, you won’t be worried about whether or not it safely made the trip.


Pack Properly


When planning for a long distance move, one of the most important things to think about is how you’re packing your goods. By making sure that everything is packed properly with the correct boxes, tape, and wrappings, you can be sure that your furniture and other cherished belongings will arrive to your new home safe and sound. Be sure to get boxes, tape, and newspaper ahead of time so you’re not feeling rushed closer to your move.


Also organize your belongings while you pack.  This is a great time-saver. When moving long distance, we especially recommend organizing at least one box of essential items that you will want to begin using immediately once they arrive at your home. This could include basic pots/pans, plates, everyday clothes, or other belongings; it’s up to your discretion. It’s also important to label boxes which contain fragile items.  We recommend grouping them together in “specialty boxes” which should be marked to indicate the care that is required when moving those items. You can organize the rest of your boxes by the rooms their contents belong in, or however else you think will speed up your move. Just make sure that you mark the boxes accordingly.
