Moving by plane: a simple guide

Free Moving Estimate

When you think about relocation, odds are that the first things to pop into your head are big moving trucks filled with boxes. And in most cases, this is exactly how you will move, especially when you’re moving locally. But if you need Idaho movers for a relocation to a longer distance, across the country perhaps or maybe even to another continent, then you might end up moving by plane instead. And that is a bit different from moving using a moving truck. So how can you ensure that your plane relocation is successful? Here are the most important things to know if you’re flying to your new home.

The challenges of moving by plane

When you need to move somewhere by plane, you’ll experience certain difficulties that aren’t usually present when moving on top of all the challenges that moving always brings with it. In fact, relocation by plane pretty much combines the worst problems of moving and the worst problems of traveling by plane. While arriving at your new home will be easier, faster and more comfortable if you do it by plane, taking all your stuff with you will definitely be much harder. Airlines put strict restrictions on both what you can bring on a plane and how much you can bring on a plane. And if you have pets, you’ll definitely want to look into whether they can fly with you and how. Finally, if you plan on taking furniture with you, you’ll definitely need to ship it separately.

How to move by plane successfully?

Moving by plane won’t be easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. People move to other states, countries and even continents every day. Plenty of them fly there. You can do it too. All you need is a few tips.

Join forces with professional movers

Getting yourself somewhere by plane is easy. Getting some of your most important belongings somewhere by plane is also easy as long as those things fit in a suitcase. But if you want to move furniture or even just move a lot of stuff with you, you’ll need help. This is where freight companies Idaho become your best friend. Since you won’t be able to bring much on a plane with you, you’ll want to hire a moving and shipping company to deliver your belongings to you instead. Contact international movers in your area – they can help you with packing and preparing for the relocation as well as getting your stuff to your new home.

Ship most of your things ahead of time

Even if you’re moving somewhere within the country and driving there, your belongings will usually be delivered a few days after you arrive. When you’re moving somewhere you need to fly, this is always how it works. The reason for this is that the majority of your belongings cannot fly on the same passenger flights that you take. Instead, moving companies will usually ship them on commercial flights or, more commonly, by sea. Even though this takes some time, door to door shipping international is the best way to move your things if you’re flying to your new home. But if you want to have your stuff as soon as possible after you land, talk to your movers about when you should ship them. If you send them a few days before you leave, you won’t have to wait for a delivery long!

Get rid of as many things as you can

Regardless of whether you’re shipping your things separately or hoping to fit everything you really need in a suitcase, decluttering before a long-distance move is a must. Not only will it make packing easier but it’ll also lower the weight of your shipment. This will in turn make it cheaper to send. Besides, it’s always a good idea to refresh your wardrobe, replace old furniture and upgrade your electronics. You can sell off what you no longer need or just throw it away. But if you want to do a good deed for others as well as yourself, organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill accept all sorts of donations.

Planning ahead is a must when moving by plane

Planning is important whenever and wherever you’re moving. But when it comes to international moving, it is absolutely essential. So start looking into your options early. You’ll need to buy plane tickets, potentially from more than one airline if you’re transferring. The sooner you do that, the less expensive it’ll be. And let’s not forget that plane tickets sometimes sell out – you want to get yours before that happens.

Pack smart

Packing is the worst part of both moving and traveling. So packing for relocation by plane will definitely test your abilities. If you want to bring as much stuff as possible with you, here are some tips:

  • read the airline instructions on luggage very carefully – you might be able to bring more stuff than you think
  • use vacuum bags to seal your clothes in and save space in your luggage
  • pack in both your checked bags and your hand luggage
  • if you’re moving with a family, use everyone’s luggage allowance to the max
  • always weigh your bags before going to the airport to make sure they’re not over the limit
  • compare the prices of weight overage and extra bags – which pays off more?
  • give some thought in advance to what you can get rid of in case your bags are too heavy

Moving by plane is different every time – be sure to adjust to the situation

How exactly your relocation goes will depend on where and when you’re moving. Different countries have different regulations on what you can bring in or take out on a plane. And different airlines definitely have different rules on luggage. So when you’re moving by plane, make sure to look into the specifics that concern your trip. You can usually find all the information you need on government or state websites as well as airline websites. Read these carefully while planning your move.
