Interstate moving tips

If you are planning to move across the country, 5 Star Moving and Storage is here to help you plan and prepare for your interstate move.

With any large project, it’s important to break the task up into smaller pieces, so it doesn’t overwhelm you.

  • Don’t Move Stuff You Don’t Use

This may seem obvious, but it is essential to a successful move. Take a good look at every room and see what hasn’t been used, anything that isn’t necessary or sentimental should go.

If you are moving across the country, your belongings will be subjected to bumps and twists and turns along the way. To protect your items properly, it’s important to pack them carefully in sturdy boxes with a lot of padding. You will also need Sharpie Markers and strong tape.

  • Inventory and Label

No matter where you are moving, it’s important to keep an inventory list of every item, and its location. The more complicated your move, the more likely your belongings can get lost.

  • Research and Pick a Mover

If you don’t have the time to pack up your things you can hire a moving company to do the work for you. If your budget allows, this will take a lot of the stress out of doing this on your own. There are a lot of perks to hiring a professional for your interstate move. They will do the heavy lifting, loading, and unloading when you reach your destination. We recommend you get several quotes and choose a company that is reputable and cost-effective.
