How to Prepare for a Long-Distance Move

Ann Arbor MoversAnn Arbor MoversFor many people, moving is a long, often challenging process that creates a lot of stress. Long-distance moves pose their own unique set of challenges. Whether you’re moving to a neighboring state or across the country, there’s plenty to do before the Ann Arbor movers from Glass City Movers show up. Here are just a few things to cross off your to-do list when you’re preparing:

  • Cleaning – Leaving your old home better than you found it is an excellent way to make its next residents feel welcome. Not only that, it gives you a chance to inspect each part of your home’s interior. This way, you can check for minor cosmetic damage, as well as make sure you haven’t overlooked packing anything.
  • Packing – While it’s a given that you’ll be packing before your move, have you given thought to your packing strategy? Certain items, such as cleaning supplies, dishes, and legal documents should be packed after everything else for quick, convenient access.
  • Document Gathering – Take time to hunt down and gather all the documents that are essential to your move, such as your lease paperwork, inspection forms, and personal identification. If you experience any miscommunications during your move, you’ll be glad to have these papers readily available.
