Long-Distance Moving Tips for the Whole Family

If long-distance moving by yourself wasn’t enough of an undertaking, pulling it off with children and pets in the home introduces its own unique set of challenges. As commercial office movers in Bucks County, PA, Dan The Mover has learned some packing tips and tricks along the way; let’s take a look at some pointers for the whole family’s next big move.

Plan Ahead

If you’re moving across state lines, take the opportunity to create some lasting memories for you and your family. By pivoting your relocation drive into an exciting road trip, you can help reduce the stress of moving as well as give your kids something to remember for years to come. Determine if there are any family-friendly attractions along the way to your new home, and visit them along the way if possible.

Keep The Family Occupied

It’s no secret that moving day can be stressful, but that will only compound if your children and pets continue to get under movers’ feet or otherwise in the way.  We recommend you arrange an activity for your kids that takes them out of the house for an extended period and consider having someone look after your pets if they tend to be excited or friendly to a fault when it comes to visitors! This precaution ensures your family’s safety as well as our professional movers’ safety as well.

Pack a Moving Day Survival Kit

As an adult making arrangements for a long-distance move, you probably have a good sense of the essentials you need to gather after all the big stuff is packed up and loaded on a truck. But depending on their age, your children may be up to the task to pack up important things for themselves! Have entertainment like games, books, and toys readily available. If you have a pet, consider investing in a portable food and water dishes to keep your pet happy and healthy on the go.
