When you move to an entirely different state rather than to another neighborhood in your current city or town, the moving process isn’t exactly the same. Actually, the further you move, the more stressful your move might seem. This isn’t necessarily the case, and we’re here to help ensure your relocation process is easy, efficient and safe.

Don’t Procrastinate

All right, this might seem like an obvious tip — but it’s a tip that is honestly easier said than done. You might keep thinking a task can “get done tomorrow,” until one day it’s the day before your move and you’ve done nothing you said you were going to ahead of time.

Don’t procrastinate when it comes to the following tips below or in general when it comes to your residential move. Set dates of when you want certain tasks accomplished, and ensure you do whatever it takes to get those tasks completed by those dates (within reason, of course).

General Tips From Your Columbus Moving Company

Here are a few general, basic tips you should follow when moving to another state:

  • Determine a moving budget (and stick to it).
  • Get rid of anything you don’t want or need.
  • Pack up the rooms you use the least first, then make your way to packing the rooms you use daily.
  • Purchase all necessary moving gear and supplies to ensure your items are safe when driving across state lines.

Pack Whatever You Can Yourself (Then Let The Professionals Do The Rest)

There are a few things you pack up solo (i.e. your clothes, hygiene items, photo frames, etc.), but when it comes to the larger, more valuable items in your home, we suggest hiring a moving company in Columbus. Make sure the moving company you choose has the necessary resources or are willing to help with an out-of-state move (we do and are).
