How can I make my long distance move easier?

Preparing for the Long Haul

Long distance movers specialize in caring for your home possessions when you move from one state to another. You can help the movers -- and yourself -- by eliminating all unnecessary items from your home before the moving truck rental gets there. In every room of your house, ask yourself which items of furniture and other, smaller possessions are really going to be needed in your new home. Are there any items that it would be better to sell now and replace later? (For example, will it be more cost-effective to sell your bedroom set and buy a new one rather than add the cost of having it moved?)

Many of our possessions are simply things that have accumulated over the years and that may have outgrown their usefulness. By removing them from your moving inventory, you'll save time, money and effort for you and your long distance movers.
