Frequently Asked Questions About Long Distance Moving
Visit the post office to complete a Change of Address Form. Call your doctors, credit card companies, bank and any other institutions that have your address on file to notify them of your move. When you arrive in your new state, head to the DMV to register for a new driver’s license and register your vehicle
Take a look at our moving checklist to get an idea of when you should start packing specific items. As a general rule, it’s best to pack the items you rarely use first. Begin this process a 6–8 weeks before your moving day. Go through your basement, attic or closets to find the things you forgot existed. Don’t get too attached to your items, as a lighter move is a more manageable move — especially when you’re relocating across the country. Move onto more commonly used items as your moving day gets closer.
We offer affordable boxes at AAA Movers through our Budget Box Program so you’re sure to have enough storage for your move. When you’re requesting boxes, don’t be afraid to overestimate the amount you need. It’s much easier to move with too many boxes than too few.
