Long Distance Moving

I have a few tips that will help you move from a Northern State to Florida. Moving long distance offers many chances to become discouraged and overwhelmed. One of the first things you should be sure to do is change your address. You will want to contact the post office where you are and where you are going and make sure you have everything filled out and filed in the correct way. This will take several weeks to become permanent. All of your friends and family will want to know your new address to. Do not leave them out of this exciting time. Now is a great time to purge all items that you do not use. A good rule of thumb if you have not used it in three months you should get rid of it. Donate it, sell it, or give it away. Not only does this eliminate having to pack these items but It might lower your shipping costs. Do not forget to plan for the needs of your pets. It is best to make them an appointment with their vet before you leave. If you are flying, you will have to purchase a ticket for your furry friend.

If you are driving plan plenty of stops along the way. A long distance move from Northern States to Florida is probably going to be very stressful of them too. Plan a visit to the new vet once you get to Florida, just to make sure they do not require additional immunizations. Be very well organized. It will be easier to know where to put the boxes if you know what room they came from. Make sure to use a bold marker. Label each box in the same spot so that you know exactly where to look on the box for the label. One major benefit to moving long distance from up North to Florida is the weather.

Florida generally has favorable weather conditions. Just make sure you plan for rain. You do not want to be caught in a hurricane and not expect it. It is wise to verify that your bank has branches not only where you are going but also for stops along the way. You may have to transfer banks or open a new account ahead of time. If you choose to hire a moving company you need to make sure to transfer valuables yourself. Anything that would be difficult or hard to replace should be moved in your vehicle. Birth, wedding, or divorce papers should be kept safe with you. You will also want to make sure you carry your social security card, passports, checkbooks, identification, and insurance within reach in case of an emergency. Make sure you service your vehicle, rotate your tires, and have extra fluids handy. As you load you vehicle for the trip, you will want to make sure you have your jack and spare tires accessible. Plan your route, mark reasonable distances to stop and rest. Be sure to book your hotels for your overnight stays.



The Free Estimate

The estimate is a written list of requested moving services and the associated charges, and will display all items in detail . An estimate should state what will determine the final pricing for the move – whether it’s a firm bid, guaranteed not to exceed by more than 10%, based on the actual scaled weight, or actual time taken


Packaging Service

Whether it’s pillows and teddy bears, or the delicate porcelain you inherited from your great-grandmother, we can pack your household items safely in boxes to ensure they survive the trip to your new home. Packing includes wrapping items in packing paper and placing them snugly into moving boxes. Extra paper is crumpled and placed in empty spaces to ensure there is no room for items in a box to shift or move around. Clicking Here


Special Packaging

We have all the packaging setups to transport motorcyles, pianos and various other special circumstances items. We have all the latest packaging technologies that protect your items and ensure no damage. No damage means problem free and another satisfied client. If you see your mover trying to move your piano without a piano board that straps it down, stop everything because chances they are not professional and dont really care for your items.


Loading

This process differs based on the type of move in one aspect. For long distance moves (and for moves going into local storage), our movers prepare a full listing of the items being moved, as well as any pre-existing damage on them. Wood furniture is wrapped in padded blankets, and upholstered furniture and mattresses are put in large bags to prevent soiling. Some larger items like desks or treadmills may need to be disassembled to facilitate moving them (anything our movers take apart will be reassembled). Problem Free Moving Experience


The Haul

The haul is pretty much the breath span. Everything is loaded and on its way so its time to take a deep breath and relax. Depending on where the load is going this gives you time to get things setup at the new location if you havent already (electric, water, gas,etc.) Within a couple of days the truck should arrive at the location and begin the delivery and unloading process.


Delivery

When we move your things into your new home, we will place furniture and boxes into the rooms under your direction. Our movers will reassemble anything they needed to disassemble in your old home.


Unloading

So now you’re in your new home and you have dozens, maybe hundreds, of moving boxes. Some people prefer to take their time to unpack them and find places for the contents at a leisurely rate. Others want all the help they can get unpacking so they can get settled in as quickly as possible. We can handle the unpacking for you, but we won’t know where to put things.

Our unpack service includes opening the boxes, removing the packing paper, and putting the contents on your tables, countertops, beds, (basically any flat surface) so you can put things in their proper place. At the end of the day, we will take away all the empty moving boxes and packing paper. Note that if you unpack yourself, you’ll be left with a pile of boxes that is too big for your local recycling. We can arrange for somebody to come by and pick them up.
