fbpx Moving Out of State Packing Tips - Legacy Moving - Expert Local & Long Distance Movers


Moving out of state is not an easy feat, but with our top packing and moving tips, you’ll be prepared to take as much stress out of your move as possible.


Start Early


The more time you have to prepare for your move, the better. Start by packing items you won’t readily need and label the boxes in detail. As an added measure, you can take pictures of what items are in which package.


Plan Your Moving Strategy


Whether you’re planning to pack and move or hire a moving company, get clear on your plan. Many truck rental companies and movers book out months in advance. Having your move scheduled will ensure you aren’t left scrambling at the last minute.


Minimalize Your Things


It’s easy to hold on to things we never even use, which will become apparent during your move. Get rid of as much as you can before moving. Use the time beforehand to donate items or hold a garage sale.


Packing Clothes


Leave your clothes in your dresser drawers and use plastic wrap to keep the drawers from opening. For clothing on hangers, leave them on their hangers and use a wardrobe box to transport them. Garbage bags will also work.


Use What You Have


An excellent use for towels and linens is to use them to pack your breakables. This way, you aren’t wasting packing materials, and you’ll need fewer boxes than if you use bubble wrap or packing paper.


Use any suitcases you have to pack clothes or toiletries. Make sure to label them with their contents.


We hope these moving tips will be of use to you, and we wish you a happy, stress-free moving experience.
