When you are moving long distance you know that all your belongings will be packed in boxes and taken to a truck. The moving truck will be packed with all your belongings and then trucked to your new location. This means that you need to get you and your vehicle there and that is why you want to start with your own box. There is always a box that should be packed with the things that you know you will need to have access to when you arrive or along the way. This box should be planned out and a list made so you don’t forget anything. This should have things like your toothbrush, medication, clothes that you want to use and any personal effects that are needed on a daily basis.
The items that are being packed and boxed up should be labeled so that you know where they go when they get to your new house. The truck may or may not show up on the same day as you and you may not have time to go through boxes when you arrive. That is why you want to make sure that you label a few boxes that you want to have placed in your own vehicle for the journey. They can be items that you want to keep with you so that you can get to them when you arrive and over the first few days.
Moving is something that takes a lot of planning and effort. That is why you want to make sure that you don’t take things with you that you are not going to use. A long distance move is a great time to reduce and donate items that you have not seen or know you will not have space for. This will help to ensure that what you do need is loaded on the truck.
