Even though moving long distances can be difficult, and crossing state boundaries can seem completely unattainable, Zenith Moving is here to help you!

One of the most stressful things you can go through in life is moving, particularly if it involves a long distance. There shouldn’t be anything stopping you from picking up and moving cross-country, but for the majority of people, there is, whether you’re traveling for employment or just want a change of scenery.

No, the move itself is what makes it worthwhile to step outside of your comfort zone and establish a new life with new people. Fortunately, there is a method for making relocations of any length as simple and stress-free as possible. Here’s where we get involved.

Zenith Moving has been providing full-service long distance moves that are reasonably priced and supported by a reliable brand for years. No matter where you’re going, we can get you home since we are the biggest transportation network in the world.

This long-distance moving manual will answer all of your concerns and make you feel more prepared.

Make a Long-Distance Moving Plan

In contrast to local or intrastate moves, long-distance moving falls under federal regulation for transporting items from state to state. Companies that perform long-distance, or interstate, moves must also have insurance policies that help to protect the items transported and the customer.

Your long-distance move will be easier the more planning you do. It is impossible to put off organizing such an important move.

Get to work and make a schedule as soon as you are aware that you are moving. Don’t put it off until the last moment.

Determine the time you must arrive at your new place first. Do you have to be there on a specific day to start a new job or make sure your kids are at school on time? Also, determine how much time you have to prepare, travel, and settle in by working backward from the time you need to arrive.

Set due dates for important tasks and break the moving process up into smaller, more manageable portions. Give yourself deadlines for things like hiring movers, packing particular spaces, and connecting utilities in your new house.

  • Update Your Important Records, Utilities, and Mail – Moving to a new location and being unable to access important papers because you neglected to update your address is one of the most unpleasant experiences (or updating your address too late). Instead of waiting until you’ve moved, it’s simpler to tackle these activities while you’re still in your current residence.
  • Make arrangements with the post office to have your mail forwarded to your new address. Typically, you can choose the day you want to begin receiving mail at the new address online.
  • Get the utilities for your home or flat switched to your name by contacting utility companies as well. You won’t show up at a house or apartment that is frigid or without an internet connection by updating utility information.

How to Prepare Your Home for a Long-Distance Moving Process

Starting your long-distance moving packing can be intimidating. It requires a lot more preparation than a local move. However, by using these packing suggestions, you can simplify and take on this challenging project:

  • Make a “Do Not Pack” & “Pack” List

When you start packing, making lists might help you feel more in control. Take a walk-through of your home or apartment using a notepad or the Notes app on your phone. Make two lists, one for things you want to pack and the other for things you don’t, for each room.

This may initially appear to be a time-consuming operation. In reality, starting to pack ahead of time can save you a ton of time. Making “pack” and “do not pack” lists helps you avoid bringing a ton of extra clutter with you when you move into a new house. In a new setting, you’re starting over. Why would you bring along a ton of outdated items that you don’t need anymore?

  • Donate clutter and unwanted items. Decide what you want to do with the things you won’t be bringing with you after you’ve finalized your “do not pack” lists. Do you want to hold a yard sale to sell your unwanted items and earn some additional money? Would you be willing to give them to a nearby shelter or secondhand shop? The majority of your stuff can probably be used again. Some, though, will have to be disposed of immediately. Give purging, decluttering, and donating a day or two of your time (or more) so you have time to organize and reduce your possessions before packing.
  • Packaging materials. You can purchase packing boxes in a variety of sizes if you’re willing to spend more money. You can also get in touch with nearby companies and request their extra boxes. Especially if you want to reduce the cost of moving.
    Check social media to see if anyone nearby has any boxes they’d like to give to you. Many people also give moving boxes away after they move. Make sure you have plenty of tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper in addition to boxes. Additionally, purchase many markers so you can properly label boxes.

Long-distance moving requires a list of priorities

Of course, it isn’t sufficient to merely guarantee that we will relocate your belongings. If you’re moving across town or a long distance, you want to be sure that the team of movers you’re selecting consists of professionals with the knowledge and know-how to assure security during your trip.

Every time we have a long-distance move, we draw years of combined experience in the nationwide moving business. We can move your goods to your destination with ease because we are familiar with the key transport routes from Florida to Maine, New York to California, and all points in between. This gives you peace of mind that you won’t get from other movers.

Pack your remaining possessions in order of importance once you have a stack of boxes, a stack of tape, and rolls of bubble wrap available. Examine your remaining possessions to determine which can be packed now and which you’ll need to keep using up until the long-distance moving day.

You can pack your winter coat and snow boots now, for instance. Especially if your move takes place in the summer. However, have warm-weather attire close at hand to ensure that you are comfortable before your move. Try your best to rationally arrange your items while you pack. Put all of your office materials, for instance, in a box marked “Office.”

In another moving container, label it “Winter clothing,” and then place all of your winter clothing inside.

How Our Entire Moving Process Works

Arranging a long-distance move? It’s crucial to keep in mind not to worry about it. Even though moving is a necessary part of life, it’s not always easy. We can help make the process of moving your belongings from point A to point B as easy as we can, even if there is a significant distance between them. This is how it operates:

You don’t need to organize the move alone. Give us a call, and one of our friendly customer service representatives will help you schedule our services. Since we provide full-service moving, all you have to do is sign a contract, and we’ll take care of the packing, loading, moving, unloading, and unpacking of your belongings. Need moving supplies? Let us know beforehand, and we’ll provide them.

Our team will help you schedule a date for your big long distance move and give you a quote that includes everything up front. When that day rolls around, we’ll be there right on time to get started.

Make The Call And Book Your Long-Distance Moving Crew ASAP

Moving across a country takes time and is quite stressful. But try not to let your nerves get the better of you.
You can set yourself and your loved ones up for a (mostly) stress-free moving experience with careful planning and preparation. To begin, have long-distance movers perform labor-intensive tasks for you.

While Zenith did come highly recommended, I thought they were overpromising. I now bite my tongue, not only did they deliver as promised but went far and beyond the expectations. Kiko makes the planning process seamless. He accommodated every request I had and put up with all my questions at all times of day, never saying no. I initially booked 1 move but ended up doing 4. His team, led by Paco and Hassan were outstanding. So efficient, funny and easy to work with. They deserve every star!

We were recommended Zenith when we were quote hunting for our move. The quote process was easy and straight forward. Our move from NYC to Connecticut was fuss-free thanks to Zenith. They do a video call to assess the items you have and provide a quote that covers everything (excl. tips) so you don’t have to worry about additional/hidden fees. Though they arrived 1 hour late, they were efficient in moving and wrapping our big items. I love that they provided us with extra boxes on the day of move as we ended up needing quite a few. They arrived 30 min earlier than us in the new apartment and waited for us with things ready to be moved. No damage to the apartment and friendly team. Thanks Kiko, Emma, Paco and team.

Where do I start? After doing extensive research we went with Zenith Moving As they came in highly recommended. Kiko communicated everything to us from the first minute and made move a lot less stressful.We have a lot of stuff of value, and also things that are not top dollar value but huge value to us. These guys took care of every single item in the house! Everything was double or triple wrapped and not a single item broke or got damaged. These guys are fast and focused so make sure you stay out of their way while they are working lol. I’m so happy I listened to Kiko and took packing service. Trust me you can never pack like these guys would do it for you.Also, our move was local in the midst of Hurricane Ian here in Fort Lauderdale, FL and I was afraid they would cancel but that didn’t happen so I’m very grateful.All in all just an amazing experience with these group of guys, would definitely highly recommend to anyone!

My experience with Zenith Moving was exceptional! They were extremely professional and responsive. Throughout the week leading up to my move, they were proactive in coordinating details. Moving can be a stressful process but they always made me feel like they had everything under control. On the day of the move, their team was efficient and did a great job with everything, and checked in throughout to make sure that I was happy with how things were going. I had a great experience couldn’t recommend them more, and definitely will work with them again in the future!

We had a 3 part move, from Brooklyn to Long Island and 20% of the boxes/furniture going into storage. Kiko came and had a very thorough meeting with me looking over and taking inventory of all the items and gave me a good competitive price. It was full pack and full move, partly into storage and rest moved into a house in Long Island. The day of the move, the packing went smoothly and way quicker and all seamless, boxes were properly tagged and all things went into storage with labels. The actual move to the house was also quick and professional. Beds taken apart and properly assembled back together and one of their crew even helped me unpack my entire kitchen which went quicker than I can ever do myself.All in all a wonderful experience and I truly value Kiko’s and his crews incredible work ethnic. So much so that I now became a repeat customer.Had another move to decorate our new house and had him move pieces from an apt from the city last week! Kiko even picked me up, drove me to the city and dropped me off back at my house, total catered service!If you are looking for a great moving company who takes cares in their work, look no further! Call Zenith!
