Tips for a long-distance move

Moving across the country (or in Texas across the state) can present some major hurdles. Here are some tips to make your long-distance move a success.

Quick tip: How to make a long distance move

First thing is to plan ahead. Contact moving companies 3 months ahead of time. Do your research and pick a reputable company.

Next, downsize as much as possible. You don’t want to move something across the country just to throw it away when you get there.

Third, pack efficiently and label boxes to make sure you will be able to find things when they show up at the other end.

Finally, know your rights. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates long-distance moves. Their website provides information on your rights and responsibilities. You can get their checklist here.
