If you are making a move from one state to another, it pays to hire the right interstate moving company. Rather than looking to hire local Rhode Island residential movers that might not be able to go across state lines or even consider transferring your things to Connecticut residential movers once you get across state lines is absolutely ridiculous and a waste of time and money. If you are planning to make household moves in Rhode Island and you are moving to another state within the New England area or outside of the northeastern region all together, contact Conlon Moving & Storage.
As an agent for United Van Lines, Conlon Moving & Storage offers our clients the best of both worlds: a local moving company with years of experience working with area commercial and residential moves, as well as a global moving company that can help you move anywhere in the world. So no matter where you are – and where you need to go – Conlon Moving & Storage has the solutions and services available to make it happen.
How to Pack Your Home into a Box
It can be difficult to think about making a move – especially to another state. Packing up all of your things can be overwhelming. Think about it: you need to pack your clothes, your household goods, your tools, your furniture, your life – and put it into a box to transport to a new location. That is a lot of work and it can be difficult if you haven’t made a move in a very long time. People tend to collect things, and if you are coming from a home with lots of closets and storage, you might have more things than you realize.
Step One – Create a To-Do List
The best way to get started on any type of move is to make a to-do list of all the things that need to be done. Schedule a FREE in-home estimate with the interstate moving company ahead of time to ensure that you secure the date you want to move. Do this as soon as you know you are moving, because there can be conflicts with Rhode Island residential movers depending on the time of year. Some months, weeks and dates are more hectic than others with regard to moving, such as weekends, holiday weekends and summer vacation.
Don’t forget to include a list of all the utility companies you will need to contact at your current location and at the new location. Work with local real estate agents or apartment managers to get the names and numbers of the local utilities at your new place. Remember to put in a change of address with the post office and consider having your mail held for a few days if you will be traveling a great distance for your move. They can hold it for you until you get settled in at the new location.
Step Two – Start Packing
You can either take care of the packing yourself or hire the movers to do it for you. Household moves in Rhode Island do not have to be complicated. An interstate moving company doesn’t just have all of the boxes and packing supplies you need to make a successful move, they also have the knowledge and experience in how things should be packed and arranged to prevent anything from shifting or breaking during the move. If you are making a large interstate move, know that you can count on the professional moving company to take care of all the important details with regard to packing, safeguarding, loading, transporting, unloading and unpacking.
Step Three – Consider Moving Some Things into Storage
Did you know that you can start preparing for your move ahead of time by packing and moving some things into storage? One way to make your interstate move a lot easier is to move the things that you aren’t using between the time you start planning your move and the day you actually move. Temporary storage solutions are available through Conlon Moving & Storage. Your things can be stored and then loaded onto the truck when it is time to make your household moves in Rhode Island, Massachusetts or Connecticut.
This is a great time-saver and it can also be useful in other ways. For example, if you are selling your home, reducing the amount of clutter and furniture can make rooms appear to be larger or help prospective buyers picture their own things in the house much easier. It is a technique that is used by real estate agents nationwide. You can also pack a little bit at a time and move at your own pace, going from room to room and take time to toss out the things you no longer want or need. Sometimes taking your time can be extremely advantageous.
Step Four – Let Conlon Moving & Storage Do the Rest
