Interstate moving can often be a more difficult process than transferring to a new home within your state. Below are a few things you should prepare for in an interstate move to make it easier on you and your family.
Safety of your belongings
The source of most stress for those who have experienced an interstate move is the safety of their belongings. The distance it has to travel can cause owners to worry about their things. Proper packing of your belongings and having a professional removalist team can ensure their safety.
Traffic is another factor which makes an interstate move a pain. For some people, what should only take a few hours of travel time slowly turns into 15 agonising hours. The best way to avoid traffic is to know right time to move. Visit your new home address and ask your future neighbours there as to when are the roads less congested. You can also ask your removalists for an appropriate date to avoid traffic.
The first night
Imagine spending your first night in your new home. It can be an unsettling and uncomfortable transition for many people. To help ease your family into their new home, break out their usual entertainment items such as their laptop, books or TV on the first night. Another good way to ease them in is to have dinner in a good restaurant near your new house. This is also a good opportunity for you to take a tour of the new neighbourhood.
By knowing what to expect in an interstate move, you should be able to prepare and help make the move as stress free as possible.
