Long Distance Moving

Moving out of Oklahoma?

If you are moving somewhere that is another city, county or state, there are some things you should do beforehand to make everything go smoothly. Start by planning everything way in advance, even 2-3 months before you move. This way, you can have everything such as your address change, moving company arranged, and time taken off from work to move. You will need to give yourself several days for the entire move and maybe longer depending on how far you are moving. You will want to research everything in the area you are moving to such as the location of the grocery stores, utilities, police departments, and hospitals, among many others so that you can be sure to know where everything is for when you need them.

Packing Personal Or Valuable Items

We will help you pack

When moving, it is always best to personally pack and transport your personal and valuable items such as jewelry or previous heirlooms if possible. This can help ensure that they will safely arrive to the new location without any problems. Small jewelry pieces can be placed in a small plastic bag before packing so they will not be lost. Carrying these items yourself and in your own vehicle during moving can help you rest in knowing they will not be lost within the many different boxes, bags and furniture being moved. A fully insured moving company is one you know you can trust with your items if you are not able to carry larger items in your vehicle. Doing some research and finding the best companies with the best reviews is very important when it comes to moving your precious items.

Pre-Packing Checklist For Moving

Get ready to pack

If you are about to move you want to prepare of list of things you need to do to make everything go as smooth as possible. Having a pre-packing checklist can help you get organized and ready for your packing experience. First, you want to make a list of everything you need such as boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, labels, and markers for writing on labels. Keeping one bag for overnight essentials is very important as the first night in your new place you will want to have access to all of your personal items without having to search for them. Even packing a plastic bin full of items you will need immediately at the new place will help in this regard.

How To Prepare To Move

Planning out your move

Moving your home or business takes some preparation. You want all of your items to packed appropriately before they are moved to the new location, along with making sure you use a moving company that is dependable. Doing your research on moving companies is extremely important. You want to choose one that is fully insured, and one that has the experience to move your items. Preparing for your move in advance is important also, so be sure to check with the moving company on their availability. Stock up on all necessary items for moving such as boxes, packing supplies, and cleaning supplies. Before you move, you will need to put in a change of address so that your mail will not be delayed at the new place. Formulating a plan for moving helps to make things go smoother, and being prepared can help reduce the stress of the move.

Moving And The Weather

Check your local weather

The weather in Oklahoma can change rapidly, so when you are deciding on a time to move you want to do this at a time of year when the weather is pretty stable. Usually, the summer months are better to move weather-wise. These months are usually the busiest times of the year for moving companies, however. You will have to plan in advance to move so that you can be sure they are available. The weather can be pretty unpredictable in the spring and fall, but if you must move during these seasons then keeping a close eye on weather systems can help you determine the best days to move.
