Moving between states can be a complicated process, with many steps which are required, but not necessarily obvious to individuals who have not relocated their homes across state lines before. This new report from Movers.com aims to simplify the process, using step-by-step instructions, and an easy-to-follow timeline.

While Movers.com suggests that moves should be planned up to six months in advance whenever possible, the new report has guidelines for planning a move with as little as eight weeks’ notice. The first step in the report focuses on finding a local moving company with experience in interstate jobs and suggests several methods for finding the right company.
Using a simple tool on the Movers.com website, it is possible to get up to 7 no-cost, no-obligation moving estimates from local specialists, by completing a single form. This allows clients to narrow down their options and allows them to see reviews for popular moving companies in their area.
The report suggests several questions to ask a moving company, which will help to clarify any important regulations or considerations that need to be dealt with in advance. It also provides suggestions for crafting a moving budget, such as including 10% more than estimated to deal with any last-minute costs or complications.
Though the report primarily explores the requirements for planning, scheduling, and completing the moving process, it also covers several other areas that often require advance planning, such as choosing new schools. It also includes a section detailing the steps required to change a mailing address, close accounts with utility companies, and set up utilities at the new house.
One important suggestion in the report covers several types of potential complications by having users pack a separate bag of essential items in case there are any delays with the moving truck. Having a bag with all the items required for at least 24 hours in a new state allows clients to be fully prepared in case a truck is delayed for any reason, or in case of complications at the new address.
An excerpt from the report explains, “Relocating to a new state can be very overwhelming and tedious, especially if not done right. Whether you are a recent graduate, a working professional, or moving with a family, you want things to go as smoothly as possible. We put together the ultimate checklist to assist you in moving to another state.”
