Interstate Home Relocation Checklist That Won’t Fail

Interstate relocation can be tedious and tiring, especially when you are moving out with plenty of household goods, appliances and with your family members. At one end, you have to look out for affordable and competent packing moving service providers, and at the other end, you have to make all the travel arrangements for your family. The entire process can be even more tiring when you are running out of time, or if you are moving in a hurry.

Sounds familiar? Thankfully, there are ways to tackle the situation much more effectively and conveniently using a quick interstate home relocation checklist. I have been around in the relocation industry for over a decade now, and I am happy to share this easily yet effective checklist that’ll help you to tackle an upcoming interstate home relocation issue much more conveniently.

First thing first, so start with a basic relocation plan.

#1 Interstate home relocation planning

Interstate relocation should be done with adequate planning, because no plan can be worse. So think through and figure out the dates and the process. Some of the important dates that you should work out are the dates of moving your goods and the family.

The second thing that you have to think and plan for is to finalize the inventory that you wish to move. Having a tentative list of major items that needs proper packing and moving can be of great help in assessing the situation as well as in negotiating the price with the moving companies.

When you have the list of major items at hand, you can simply eliminate the guess work and assumptions and therefore eliminate a lot of confusion about the cost of packing, moving and transit insurance.

The next thing to decide is to whether to do it yourself or book the packing and moving service. Do-It-Yourself packing and moving is always an option, but consider this only if you have prior moving experience and you have plenty of time at hand, and you are willing to spend time arranging and doing everything that it takes to pack and move your own.

Using professional mover packer service is always recommended for long distance household relocation needs.

#2 Screening movers for long distance move

This is one of the biggest tasks, and if you want to do it right (which I am sure you want), you got to spend some time in finding, screening and choosing a moving service company that is proficient, reliable and affordable.

Usually, removal companies are available locally these days, and therefore the best way to get started is to look out for a few of the well known local removal companies available near you.

 Share the list of goods, tentative dates when you want to move and ask for a tentative quotation. You may also like to ask them to do a survey (which they do for free) and then quote a price. Allowing them to survey the goods will help them assess the efforts and costs much accurately.

Once you have the moving quotations at hand, you can quickly compare and negotiate as needed and then finally choose a mover that you like the most.

When choosing a moving company, you should always pay attention to

  • The company and its credentials
  • Packing quality and handling process
  • Policies and payment terms
  • Pre and post move support
  • Other value added services
  • Overall packing and moving charges

At the time of hiring moving services, we often fall for lower costs and cheaper services and then end up with surprises. And therefore, it is important to be double sure about the credentials of the company you are considering for your upcoming interstate home relocation.

Now that the planning is done and the movers are on board, it’s time to prepare and move, and we’ll talk about that in the next step.

#3 Preparing for interstate move

The next important task at hand is to arrange the tickets or make travel arrangements for the family members. If you don’t want to drive or there is no way to drive through, then make suitable travel arrangements for your family members.

Once that is sorted, you have to do some preparations before the movers arrive for packing everything. Usually the packing and loading is done the same day, so you should be prepared.

There are certain things that you should always keep in mind and the movers may advise you, such as:

  • Switch off all the home appliances a day before, especially fridge and washing machine
  • Stop using home and kitchen appliances one day prior to the scheduled move day
  • Mop and dry all the appliances
  • Collect and group loose items together that needs to be packed and moved
  • Pack a first aid kit and carry it with yourself
  • Keep all the medicines etc that may be required by your family members
  • Pack all the valuables and documents that you should carry with yourself
  • Print out the tickets etc and keep it at a safe place
  • Keep the quotations, bills, payment receipts etc safely

And add other tasks as per the situation and based on your needs in the list above.

Remember, the key to safe and hassle-free home relocating is detailed planning. With detailed advanced planning not only you can manage the entire relocating process easily, but it helps you get your goods relocated safely and without any hassles.

How to Compare Moving Companies Rates, Reviews and Credentials

What I like most about shopping online is that I can quickly compare the product, its MRP, offers and discounts, user reviews and exact technical specification before buying. And once I am done with the comparing and researching about the product I intend to buy, I can order it from the site that gives me the best value for the money I am spending. You can’t really distinguish between a good product and a bad product, unless you compare its specification, prices, reviews etc. Similarly, when you want to relocate your house or require storage services, unless you compare moving companies, you can’t really be sure that you have hired the best moving company, that’ll deliver the best service and at best price.
