To keep you on the right track when you beginning dreaming of moving your household to a far-away destination, keep the following pro tips in mind:  

1. Choose a Company You Can Trust

You need a company that you can count on with state to state moving, and that comes from doing your research when selecting a provider. Look for a company that has several awards, recognition, positive reviews, and industry affiliations—like Frisbie Moving & Storage that has been an award-winning agent of United Van Lines and an expert long-distance moving company since 1930.

2. Take Precautions With Long-Distance Packing

Above all, you want your items to arrive safe and undamaged after a long-distance move. If you are DIY-packing, using an organizational system and labeling boxes is important—while you also need to ensure you’re using quality, heavy-duty materials. 

For help with this monumental task, it can be wise to hire a team of professional long distance movers and packers. The packing crew at Frisbie Moving has 230 hours of training with a mastery of 80 different packing skills to guarantee that your items are packed to perfection. 

3. Protect Your Items With Insurance Coverage

Frisbie Moving operates Sanitized®-treated, air-ride vans to help ensure the safety of your items during transport, but we also know the value of planning ahead for the unexpected. To ensure that you’re protected in the event of damage, we offer two separate insurance options, including basic Released Rate Liability insurance at no extra charge. 

4. Keep Valuable & Personal Items Close-By

While the majority of your household items will be packed and loaded right into the moving van, there are a few exceptions. Personal care items, a few changes of clothing, medication, and important documents should all go with you in your personal vehicle. There are also certain specialized items that a moving company will not handle, so be sure to double-check your contract before the big day arrives!
