Prepare for Long Distance Moving With These 3 Tips, Cincinnati, Ohio

Planning the arduous task of long distance moving? Be prepared—you’re in it for the long haul! It’s not a simple swap down the block or a new spot across town—your new home could be thousands of miles across the country.

Thankfully, Cincinnati area residents have quality moving help ready and waiting. For over 30 years, Wayne and Family Moving has been the area’s go-to source for commercial and residential moving services, helping businesses and families establish their new lives with peace of mind, no matter how far they go to start them.

Here, these experienced professionals share their three top tips for long distance moving:

  • Pack Belongings Carefully: If you’re traveling long distances, your belongings are bound to get jostled around. Ensure that you have the proper moving help to pack your precious possessions before they hit the road. They’ll be handled by multiple workers and in a moving truck for days, so take pains to secure each and every box. Fill every box to the brim so that nothing gets loose during the journey, and pack delicate items with the appropriate wrapping. This is especially important for fragile items like TVs, radios, speakers, and delicate plate and glassware.
  • long distance movingInsure Everything: If it’s worth bringing, then it’s worth having insured. Thousands of miles in a moving truck raise scenarios you might not have considered—such as antique glassware trekking up a mountain road or sliding on a hard turn. Since so much can occur over thousands of miles, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Assume the worst and insure all of your belongings for the highest level of protection. No matter how far they may wander, if they’re insured, your investments will always be safe.
  • Organize Beforehand: If you’re in a rush to leave, you might consider piling items in no particular order, forgetting that they will eventually have to be unpacked. The easiest way to avoid the “where are all my things” dilemma? Organize in advance. Place essential items in the same place so that you can start using them right away—including pots and pans, toiletries, and your favorite clothing. Don’t forget to label each box by room or category so that you know where each item is located upon arrival. There’s no denying this process is time-consuming, so don’t take on the task alone! A little moving help will make a world of difference.  

Whether you’re tackling long distance moving or a quick move down the street, the professionals at Wayne and Family Moving have you covered. Visit them online for more information, or call (513) 542-5436 to receive your free estimate today!
