Long distance moving with 7Moving
1. Plan your move in advance:
Start planning your move as early as possible. Research moving companies, book your move date, and arrange for any necessary permits or paperwork.
2. Choose a reputable moving company:
Research moving companies in your area, and has experience with long-distance moves. Get a written estimate and check for any hidden fees.
3. Declutter and pack carefully:
Declutter your home before you move and pack your belongings carefully to avoid damage during transport. Use sturdy boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper. Label each box with the room it belongs in and a brief description of its contents.
4. Consider storage options:
If you are not able to move into your new home immediately, consider using a storage unit. Many moving companies offer storage options, or you can rent a storage unit separately.
5. Take care of paperwork:
Make sure you have all necessary permits and paperwork for your move. If you are moving to a different province, research the specific requirements for that province.
6. Arrange for transportation of your vehicle:
If you are moving a long distance, you may need to arrange for transportation of your vehicle. Many moving companies offer this service, or you can use a separate auto transport company.
7. Notify your utility companies:
Notify your utility companies, such as electricity, gas, water, and internet, and arrange to have them disconnected or transferred to your new home.
8. Prepare your new home:
Clean your new home before you move in, and make sure all utilities are turned on. Consider arranging for any necessary repairs or upgrades before you move in.
9. Stay in touch with your moving company:
Stay in touch with your moving company and make sure everything is going smoothly during the move. Be sure to communicate any changes in your plans or concerns you may have.
