While you may be able to keep your stuff together and your sanity intact for a move across the state, going through an out-of-state move is a totally different ballgame. This is not a time to suck it up and do it yourself. Rather, this situation calls for the kind of planning, organization and expertise you can only get through a professional moving company.
You will find that you will save oodles of time and likely even money because professional movers know exactly what needs to take place and in what order it should happen. When hiring a company, check their references and customer testimonials to ensure they have extensive experience in out-of-state moves.

If you are getting ready for a residential move in 2019, you may be feeling just a little stressed. There’s so much to think about and do that it can be difficult to know where to begin. When you are feeling short on time, it becomes even more overwhelming.
Our team of moving experts at Nilson Van & Storge has you covered. Take a look at two of our best time- and sanity-saving moving tips:
Recycle. Donate. Trash. Those are three words you need to keep in mind early in the moving process. The idea is to significantly pair down your belongings, so you have less to move. A popular decluttering expert suggests to hold something in your hand, and if it doesn’t bring you joy—toss it! This may be a good simplification strategy. Whatever method you choose to get rid of stuff, understand that the less you have to move, the quicker the entire process will go for you.
Create a packing plan and stick to it! Winging it when it comes to packing is a recipe for extreme frustration, not to mention a big time-waster. One smart way to get organized is to develop a color coding system for your boxes and living spaces, including a floor plan for where the boxes will go at your new place. Assign each space a color, mark the boxes with a magic maker, and you will save time figuring out where everything will need to go.

Developing and adhering to a moving budget is a smart way to manage the costs of moving, but what about those hidden costs? It’s the unexpected and last minute costs that tend to drain your bank account (and/or savings) and leave you feeling frazzled. Here are some of the potential hidden costs to consider as you plan out your moving budget:
If you use a professional moving company, they will provide the insurance coverage for you; however, the standard rate typically isn’t enough to cover replacement of many items. Additional coverage is often necessary for valuable and delicate items.
Whether you are selling or renting out your old home, repairing and cleaning it will be tasks to make sure are on your to-do list and included in your budget. You may be handling the tasks on your own or planning to hire them out—either way, there will be expenses to build into your moving costs.
Your boxes aren’t the only items moving to your new place—so are you, your family members and any automobiles you have. You may need to pay for tune-ups and or repairs for your vehicles before you leave, and you will definitely need to pay for plenty of gas to get you there. If the distance long, you may need plane tickets and/or hotel stays as well.
