Are you moving out of Utah? Long-distance moves are an exciting new adventure to embark on, but they can lead to all sorts of stress. That’s why we have you covered with a quick guide to making your long-distance move more manageable.
Keep reading to learn how you can prepare for an easy-breezy moving experience.
Set a Schedule and Stick to It!
What’s the absolute best way to ensure that everything gets done promptly? Setting a schedule! Before you start, think about anything you have to do before packing up and moving out of your home. As you create your checklist, start with the small things, like acquiring packing materials, going through seasonal decor, and making a list of everything that will be moved with you versus what will be thrown out. Schedule more significant things like packing up the kitchen and the master bedroom until later in the move, so you’re still able to access all your necessities. You know what’s best for your schedule, so make sure to time it out wisely and, more than anything, don’t over-stress yourself out by attempting to get everything done in a matter of just a few days.
Junk and Donate Your Stuff
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, purge your things before you pack! You don’t want to waste your time packing and moving things that don’t have a place in your new house. Take a few hours to take inventory of all your belongings and what needs to be donated, repurposed, or thrown away. Check your local thrift shop for donation times, and don’t be afraid to take multiple trips if needed. Some thrift stores and charities will even come to pick up large items for you!
We’ve suggested the KonMarie method before, but we also highly recommend the one-year method. If you haven’t used the item in an entire year (with the exception of some seasonal items), it might be time to consider giving it away.
Bring on Some Help
Especially if you’re moving out of Utah, a long-distance move can bring up some unexpected complications. That’s why it’s important to hire some trusty help. Whether you hire a full-service team or a team to assist you during the long haul between your Utah home and your next home, a moving company will be well worth the investment to make sure all your belongings get to their next destination safe and sound.
