Planning Your Long-Distance Move

It will come as no surprise that your long-distance move differs greatly from a local move. There is more planning, more cost, and generally more stress. Your Denver moving company, Eden’s Moving, would like to help minimize the stress part as much as possible. Today we’ll tell you how to plan for your upcoming long-distance moving process properly. 

Get prepared for your long-distance move.

Whether you’re moving locally or moving long-distance, we’ll always advocate for preparation. Planning for your move will not only minimize your stress levels, but it will help ensure you don’t forget anything, which can cost you monetarily and emotionally.  

Downsize and declutter before your long-distance move

Getting rid of all those items in the garage or attic is a great start. But don’t forget about the espresso machine that’s still in the box or the baby clothes in the bin in your closet, or the bike with flat tires. 

The less you have to move, the better for your pocketbook, your new space, and overall mental well-being. Think about having a garage sale, installing some apps on your phone like let go and offerup, and heading to your local consignment shop to see if they can help you out. 

Don’t want to make money off your items? Donation is a big win all around. And if it’s broken or otherwise unusable, recycling and trash are your best bet. Who wants to lug a cracked TV screen across the country? No one.

Start packing ASAP for your long-distance move.

Packing is the most time-consuming part of moving, so get your packing supplies on hand after taking a quick inventory of what you think you’ll need. Having the boxes ready to go will help move the process along. Start packing up the guest bedroom or the basement. Get all the items you never use in boxes because it’s those things that you don’t think about that will sneak up on you in the end. 

The sooner you start your packing, the better. Grandma’s china dinnerware? You don’t want to rush-pack that. Get the appropriate packing materials to ensure the safe transport and arrival of your most valuable and sentimental belongings. They have a long trip to make, so you want to do this correctly. 

Beaches, golf courses, and historic districts make South Carlina so beautiful.

Find the best professional movers for your long-distance move

It’s important to find a Denver professional moving company that you can trust. This will take some work on your end, so the earlier you start, the better off you’ll be. 

First, get some recommendations from those you trust, then check out their online reviews, website, social media, etc. You want to know you’re working with movers you can rely on. And you’ll want to ensure that you’re only researching Denver local moving companies that have the proper insurance and licensing. 

If you feel confident in a handful of long-distance moving professionals, get your free quote from each. Remember, there’s a reason they say, “you get what you pay for,” cheaper doesn’t mean better. You want a company with exceptional moving services, as well as exceptional customer support. Arm yourself with enough information about your chosen moving companies to make an educated decision on which to use. 

Plan your long-distance trip and come home to a comfort

Once you’ve figured out how your belongings are getting to their new home, it’s time for you to route your trip. Are you stopping off to enjoy some sites? Say goodbye to some family? Taking a detour for a quick vacation? Plan your trip accordingly, so the movers know when they need to be at your new house, and the timing isn’t an issue.

Also, be sure you’ve done those nagging tasks like setting up your utilities and internet, changing your address, enrolling the kids in school, finding new doctors, etc. The more you have done before your arrival, the easier it will be to get comfortable and focus on the important things: learning the new city, meeting the neighbors, relaxing.

The takeaway 

Although you’ll undoubtedly experience some surprises that no amount of planning will help you avoid, getting through the items you can control promptly will give you fewer headaches. No one likes to feel rushed, especially when moving long-distance. Slow and steady will allow you the time to do it right.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
