Long-distance moving can be a challenge if you’re doing it alone. Unlike a local move, you need to get all your possessions and affairs wrapped up before embarking on a one-way trip somewhere new and distant. At Robb & Messer Moving and Storage, we understand that you need access to a full selection of moving services to complete the job with a single moving provider.
As a long-distance moving company, we proudly offer comprehensive long-distance moving services, including packing, logistics, and storage options, to ensure your relocation experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
What is Considered a Long Distance Move?
A long-distance move is any move that takes you more than two days’ travel away from your original destination. Not all moving companies offer long-distance services; some only provide local moves where multiple trips and smaller trucks are needed. However, at Robb & Messer Moving and Storage, we have the trucks, expertise, and services you need to make a successful long-distance move without stress or hassle.
What Is the Best Way to Prepare for a Long-Distance Move?
The best way to make sure your long-distance move is a success is to plan ahead and make sure everything is covered before moving day comes.
- Make a Master Checklist
Make a checklist for everything. First, check off all your major tasks, like forwarding your address and booking the truck. Then go through the smaller checklists to ensure you have packed everything, cleaned out your old location completely, finished all local business, and accounted for any transitional storage you may need.
- Plan and Pack Far in Advance
Plan as far ahead as possible. Start packing early, book your moving team far in advance, and give yourself plenty of time for last-minute tasks before you take a long-distance one-way trip.
- Work with a Full-Service Moving Company
The more services offered by your moving company, the better. This way, we can help you get all the packing materials you need, pack difficult items, store what may need to be stored, and handle last-minute setbacks without looking for additional service teams to solve each challenge.
- Prepare Your Destination
Make sure your new home or office is ready for your arrival. Have the paperwork finished, the utilities turned on, and the keys waiting for you to complete your relocation in style successfully.
Why Hire Professionals for a Long-Distance Move
Tackling a long-distance move by yourself is not just challenging; it can be dangerous. An experienced long-distance moving company has the expertise, resources, and network to ensure that all your possessions get safely to your distant destination. Then you can worry just about your own transportation by car, train, or plane while your items are taken care of by pros who can handle anything a long, heavily laden trip might bring.
Professionals can also help you foresee common challenges in a long-distance move and offer the best solutions before you realize you need them.
How Long Will It Take for My Items to Arrive?
Typically, you can move faster than a moving truck, especially over long distances. Give your moving truck an extra few days to a week to arrive if you both leave at the same time. You may want to book a hotel room, stay with friends, or pack enough to camp out in the new location before your truck arrives.
Fortunately, you don’t have to guess. Our movers will give you an accurate quote within one or two days of when to expect the truck to arrive, and we’ll keep in touch with updates so you never have to worry about where your items are or when they will be dropped off.
