Whether you are moving to San Antonio from in-state or out-of-state is going to make a huge impact on your moving and packing costs. All My Sons Moving & Storage of San Antonio has everything you need to know when it comes to moving long-distance. Taking the time to plan your move carefully and in advance will benefit you tremendously during the process. When you pack for a long-distance move, there are certain things you need to consider, and you can follow these tips on how to pack for your next move.
Packing your Items
During a long-distance move, your belongings will be handled by multiple movers riding in trucks for a long period of time. Because of this, you should place extra care on cushioning your items before securing boxes shut. Packing products that help with this include bubble wrap and packing peanuts. You should understand that your boxes can easily be turned on their side or upside down during the long journey. Invest in high-quality boxes that are sturdy and durable for a move of any size. You should consider packing your mattress in a box so it does not bend out of shape or become tarnished.
Make sure you keep your personal items with you and not with your boxes during a move. Any item that you will need upon arrival to your new home such as clothes, hygiene items, and sleeping materials should not be separated from you because you never know when your shipment will arrive.
Don’t pack any sealed containers of liquid or non-perishable food items to go on the moving truck. They run the risk of opening and causing your belongings to become wet, so our team of movers save you the hassle and don’t allow these products in our vehicles.
