My family moved cross country and it was one of the most stressful things I have ever seen. Honestly, there are so many moving parts when it comes to moving in your own city. Throw in moving across the country and things have the potential to definitely get chaotic! There are a few steps that you can take to limit that stress, though, and I want everyone to know about them because it will make your move and your life much, much easier.
Don’t Play Around With Your Finances
First of all, do not play around with your finances. When you buy a home and move across the country, it is not cheap. Moving, in general, is relatively expensive, but when you are having to travel in addition to just moving, it can really increase the amount of change that you need. Hopefully your company is taking care of some of the bill! When buying a home in general, you need to make sure that you do not play around with your finances. Your loan officer is watching your credit cards and other debt. Please do not let that increase while waiting to close on your home or you risk the chance of not being able to qualify for your loan. Nothing is set in stone until you sign your name on the closing papers.
Have Someone Watch The Kids
When you are packing, unpacking, and cleaning, have someone watch the kids. Also, when the movers are there, have someone watch them. This is important because most of the time, when you are moving, you want it to go by as quickly and painlessly as possible. Kids have a tendency to slow you down or get in the way (bless them!), so having a babysitter, or taking advantage of family moving with you/helping you move is absolutely essential.
Have A Moving Team Tackle The Hard Work
I’m not sure about you, but if you have not moved cross-country before (or have seen others do it), you do not know how stressful and time consuming it can be. This is why I recommend just hiring a professional moving team to do the heavy lifting (no pun intended) for you. For example, Atlanta Peach Movers specializes in many moving services, but just one service offered is long distance moving Atlanta. If you are moving out of Georgia, don’t worry - with Atlanta Peach Movers, they do not have to broker your move to an interstate or international affiliate. The same people and company that you trusted to pack and load your belongings are the same people to unload and deliver them to your new place.
They say, “Because your property is going to travel a good distance out of the metro Atlanta area within Georgia or outside of it, Atlanta Peach Movers shrink wraps and pads all delicate property such as furniture, to avoid damaging your house when leaving, or your assets. As a fully licensed and insured moving company, we take every precaution to ensure 100% consistency and safe, effective, timely transport and setup. We even offer packing services if you want to remain hands-off the entire process. Our employees must pass rigorous training in tight-spaces, 2-story moving, and unique situations to assess, test, and develop them into the experts which will arrive at your residence.” Atlanta Peach Movers has over 30 years of proven experience and should be your first choice for local, regional, national, or even international moves.
