How to Prepare for an Interstate Moving? Many first-time movers underestimate the time and effort needed for the moving. You can choose not to be one of them by following these preparation guides: Disconnect the cords of electronic devices and tie the cords to get rid of the tripping. Prepare kitchen appliances like draining the water from the washing machine hoses or defrosting the refrigerator. Make sure to wipe the fridge and washing machine before packing them. Disassemble bulky furniture like beds, cabinets, and shelves. Make sure to save the screws, washers, and bolts and keep them together. Empty the gas in containers. The movers will not be willing to move flammable items like this. Furniture and appliances are ideally packed in their original boxes. If their boxes are unavailable, better get another box for them. Make sure that the box is durable enough to keep these big items. Secure the bottom of each box too. Put special instructions on each box like “this side up” and “fragile.” Check the moving guidelines of your state and the state you're moving to so that there will be no problem along the way. Pack things as early as possible. You may not know how much time you will need to pack. The best way for this is to pack things little by little during weekend or holidays. You can only be insured of a trouble-free moving if you did a good preparation before the awaited day arrives. Better follow these guides and you can experience lesser or no stress at all.
