If you are planning on moving soon, you most likely are in the process of deciding on which long distance movers to hire. Choosing the right movers for your situation can be so stressful, especially if you have never made a big move before. If you are moving, one good way to get information about moving companies is to ask trusted friends and family members whether they have any recommendations on movers they have used before. Most people are thrilled to tell their loved ones about good moving companies. As a bonus, they should be able to pass along to you the name and phone number of the moving companies they recommend.
If you are making a big move, you may also want to think about renting pods to store your belongings. Pods, which are huge storage containers you keep on your property as you pack and empty out your current home, are so convenient and easy to use. They can help to keep your move organized so that you do not lose important items. Many movers offer deals on pod rentals. You can find out about these online by doing a web search or on social media sites.
If you are going to move soon, I would highly suggest that you have a garage sale beforehand in order to get rid of anything you do not actually want to take with you. Whatever you do not sell at the garage sale can be donated to charitable organizations or given away to friends. Do not be overly sentimental about what you are going to keep versus what you are going to get rid of when moving. If you do not actually have a use for an item, get rid of it, because if you keep it, it is only going to add to your moving costs and become a source of clutter in your new home.
