6 tips for moving long-distance

If you are relocating to a new country, or hundreds of miles away within the UK, you may find these six essential tips useful to ensure that your move is less stressful.

1. Plan early and strategically

Moving to a distant location necessitates meticulous planning. Start devising plans as soon as you can, and create checklists or spreadsheets which outline details that require your attention.

2. Keep to your schedule

Incorporate deadlines into your plan and adhere to them where possible. Time-sensitive tasks, such as enrolling children in their new school, and ensuring final meter readings are recorded with energy suppliers, should be listed in order of priority.

3. Hire an Experienced Removal Company

When searching for a Merseyside removal company that specialises in long-distance moving, look no further than Merseyside Movers. Our team have a wealth of experience on handling challenges associated with long-distance moves.

4. Purchase adequate insurance cover

No matter how careful you or your chosen removal company may be, unforeseen circumstances beyond anyone’s control can sometimes cause mishaps during transit. Purchase appropriate insurance coverage and familiarise yourself with the policy.

5. Downsize

Before moving long distance, consider downsizing. Decide on where you can scale down your items, and sell or donate those you no longer need.

6. Prepare your journey

The removal company can handle relocating your possessions, but ensure you have planned ahead by booking any onward journey you may be required to take, be that a car ferry, train or airfare. If travelling by car, have it serviced, or check it thoroughly before heading to your new home.
