    Moving is never easy, especially long distance ones. There are so many things to do that often people miss something. Unfortunately, a single mistake can end up costing us a lot of money. Not to mention the huge emotional toll it will leave feeling stressed all the time. That is why it is important to always plan and be prepared for every eventuality. Our movers Boise would like to share with you tips that will turn moving from Miami to Boise into a pleasant experience. With these steps, you will be ready to enjoy the comfort of your new home in no time.

    Declutter your home before moving from Miami to Boise

    If you lived for a while in your Miami home, then you probably accumulated a lot of belongings over the years. Therefore, the first thing you should do before the long distance movers Boise arrive is to declutter. With fewer items to pack, it will take less time and you will be done in no item. Also, the price of relocation will be cheaper because movers will have less to transport to your new home.

    Start by making two piles, one of the items you wish to keep and the other of unwanted ones. Once you are done, the time comes to decide what to do with everything. You can

    • throw them away;
    • donate them;
    • sell them.

    If you wish to make some money, then organize a yard sale. Invite your family, friends, and neighbors, and have a fun day selling everything.

    Gather all the packing materials for your move from Miami to Boise

    For a long distance move, you will need all the necessary packing materials. However, it might take some time to find everything so do not leave this step for the last minute. You will need several cardboard boxes, duct tape, bubble wraps, and plastic sheets. If you wish to save money on your move you can use second-hand ones.

    Ask your friends and neighbors if they have some leftovers from their previous move. However, if you wish to have quality packing materials, you don’t have to buy them. You can also rent portable storage Boise as you would packing supplies. It is another great and cheap option that will save you a lot of time.

    Pack all your belongings for relocation to Boise

    Once you have finished decluttering, the time comes to start packing all your belongings. This process will take a few days, depending on the size of your home. So it is best to start early so you can finish everything on time especially if you are planning a commercial move. Start by packing nonessential rooms first and then slowly progress to the more important ones.

    For example, start with an office and finish with a bathroom. Once you start putting things into boxes you mustn’t overpack the boxes. Doing so will make the boxes harder to carry and you might also get injured in the process. Likewise, all the fragile items wrap with bubble wrap and tape with duct tape. Once you place them into boxes, do not leave any room between the items. Always make sure to stuff it with old newspaper or Styrofoam peanuts. They will help keep everything from moving during transportation.

    Disassemble all the furniture

    Even if you have help, it is not easy to carry a large sofa. Also, once you manage to load it into a moving truck, it will take up a lot of space, so you will not be able to put all your stuff inside. Therefore, the first thing you want to do is disassemble everything before moving to Boise from Miami. However, you will need an instruction manual that comes with all these pieces so you can see the right order in which to do it. Firstly gather all the tools you will need like a screwdriver, hammer, and pliers. Likewise, make sure you have enough help because a lot of them are not easy to handle alone. Once you have them in pieces, make sure to put all the nuts and bolts into a bag and label it. That way, you won’t lose important parts of the furniture.

    Find a reliable moving company for your move from Miami

    For a long distance move, it is always better to have professional help. However, it is not always easy recognizing which ones are legitimate and which are amateurs. You will need to spend some time on the internet searching for a trustworthy moving company.

    Start by going through their customer reviews and testimonials. Next, once you have found a few movers that you like, ask them for moving quotes and compare the prices. This is the best way to find affordable movers and skillful enough to help you relocate. Also, a good sign that you are working with professionals is that they will send a representative to conduct an in-home estimate or offer you the option of receiving a virtual estimate. Only when they finish will you receive a moving estimate.

    Moving from Miami to Boise is easy so long as you have a proper plan
