Long Distant Moving

Most people just assume you can drive to their destination and only worry about things like where their new apartment is and what the commute will be like. They completely ignore these simple things that make their move a lot harder. There are a lot of companies that won’t give you any out of state moving tips but Able Moving & Storage is not like other moving companies. Just come to one of our offices or call to get handy tips like these.

Make Sure Your Car Can Safely Make the Trip

The first tip for long distance moving is to get your car checked out. If you are making the move during the winter then you will need to make sure your car has appropriate tires. If you’re moving to say, the Pacific Northwest, you need good wiper blades. You should take your car to your local mechanic after you meet with an employee at Able Moving & Storage. It’s not just the tires and wipers that need to be checked. Your car will probably need a full battery of tests before it can safely make it out of state. You’re going to need new tires, new brakes and definitely a change in oil to say the least.

Plan Plenty Of Stops

The second tip for long distance moving is to plan plenty of stops. No matter where you’re going, it will still be there so there’s no need to rush. Out of state speeding tickets can be expensive and you don’t want that stress on top of everything else. Make sure to drink plenty of water and coffee to keep you alert and focused on the trip. Plan plenty of restroom breaks and make sure to eat healthy meals that will keep you awake at the wheel.

Make Sure Your Insurance Works Out Of State
