Long Distance Move: During & After
If you’re reading this, I’m assuming you read our last post about what to do before you call the long distance residential movers. If not, here’s a quick recap:
- One: Car or Plane?
- Two: Pick a Season to Travel
- Three: Hire a Mover
In this article, the professionals here at Movers on the Go weigh in on what to do next. Once your bags are packed and that moving truck is ready, you’re on your way to a new home!
Talk About Insurance
Before packing up the truck, however, there are some things you should discuss with your long distance residential movers. One of the most essential topics should be the mover’s insurance. Even if you hire the most careful movers around, there is still a chance for damage. You don’t want to be forced to pay for a brand new item if it gets damaged. If you decide the mover’s policy is lacking the coverage you need, consider taking that item with you.
Unpack & Settle In
Once you arrive at your destination, you’ll want to unpack and set up your new home in the most efficient way possible. Hopefully, you labeled your boxes by room, so the movers know exactly where to put everything. Marking off where in the room you’d like large furniture also makes it easier for you to unpack in the future, and you won’t have to move around any heavy furniture. It’s also a good idea to make sure all utilities are turned on and available upon your arrival – you don’t want to wait until you’re in your towel to learn you don’t have any hot water!
In conclusion, long distance moving is no easy task. You’ll feel a strong sense of accomplishment once you climb into bed on that first night in your new home – even if you still have two dozen boxes to unpack. Utilizing the services of a long distance residential mover, like the professionals here at Movers On the Go, can make your experience a lot easier and less stressful.
