As you get older, planning a complex move may seem more and more daunting. Fortunately, you don’t have to handle the heavy lifting on your own. There are plenty of situations that arise that lead up to you needing to move, including retirement, a need to be closer to family, and downsizing.

No matter the reason, it’s important to have a team on your side that understands your wants and needs for your move. At Reliable Van & Storage, our New Jersey long-distance movers know how to handle every part of your relocation, including all the planning. Before you start, check out some of these tips that will make your move a breeze.

Good Communication is Key

First and foremost, make sure you choose a moving company you can count on. In addition to having all the services you need for your move, that means making sure your movers are easy to get a hold of whenever you need them. 

Nowadays, there are countless ways people can reach each other, including phone calls, texts, email, video chats, and more. Discuss with your moving providers beforehand which works best for you, so you can have an open line of communication throughout every step of your move.

Don’t Rush—Give Yourself Time

Over time, people will collect many possessions, which means there will be more to move—or sell or donate—when it comes time to relocate. If you or a family member is moving to a smaller household, make sure to give yourself enough time to sift through all the belongings, so you know exactly what to do with them. This is especially important because many items are bound to have sentimental value.

Take Advantage of All Your Moving Provider’s Services

The best way to make your move as easy as possible is to fully utilize the benefits of your moving company. Most movers offer full-service care that will make every step of your relocation a breeze. At Reliable Van & Storage, we will ensure all your belongings are properly packed for transportation and reduce the amount of time and hassle it takes to pack and unpack your possessions.

Think About Your Medical Equipment

When it comes to moving in your older years, you often must deal with moving large and bulky medical equipment. That makes it even more important to have a moving team on your side that knows how best to move everything. Our experts at Reliable Van & Storage will be by your side from start to finish to ensure you get the best services for your belongings.

Coordinate for Actual Moving Day

After all the planning and preparations have been made, it’s time to handle the actual move itself. To minimize stress on the people—and pets—involved, make sure to arrange comfortable transportation to the new home.

Pets should always be with their owner, and everyone should be kept as comfortable as possible—especially for long-distance moves. If you’re helping a relative move, be sure to accompany them for the journey and be there to smooth out any bumps in the road along the way.
