Moving is a unique experience, no matter where you’re moving to. However, it’s fair to say that moving down the street and moving to a new state pose two very different scenarios to think through. There are many particular considerations when it comes to an interstate move, and it’s important to really dedicate time to organizing yourself before attempting to accomplish such a huge task. One thing is certain: an interstate move can be very difficult without some basic help and guidelines. In this article, we’ll go over some basic tips to help you handle the unique challenges associated with an interstate move so that you can be set up for success. Nailing down your new location One of the first initial challenges in any interstate move is nailing down a location. If you don’t have the luxury of seeing the place you’re moving to, it can present quite an issue. You’ll want to know more about the location you’re re-locating to, including details about the space you’re going to try to fit your belongings in. Here’s some food for thought: Take measurements if you can. Think about particular logistics of moving furniture into the space. Make sure you have somewhere to load/unload belongings. Become familiar with the location, including nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations. Making necessary changes to personal information Changing your mailing address isn’t the only thing you’ll need to do: Forward mail to new address in case changes don’t update right away. Inform your loved ones and important people in your life of your new address and phone number. Update your drivers’ license and...
Whether you’re being forced to move because of a change in employment, family needs, and other circumstances, or it was simply time for a change, moving is a hassle for everyone who attempts it. Furthermore, if you’re moving out of state, it can be quite the project; moving out of state requires careful planning and consideration in order to be done smoothly, and it’s almost never without a few hiccups. However, there are things you can do that will help you better prepare for the big day. Moving out-of-state is a lot easier with the help of a professional moving company, as they might know more about the regulations of moving certain items out of your state, such as outdoor furniture that must be inspected for bugs and cleaned before traveling out of the area. Little things like that can sneak up on movers, leaving them having to deal with a crisis situation in the middle of their move. This article will focus on how you can make your out-of-state move more efficient and simple, reducing the size of the headache it will inevitably create. Choose the Right Time You might be thinking, “there’s never a right time to move!” and you would be wrong; the moving industry has its own predictably busier times of years, months, and days that make scheduling your move an important step beforehand. Usually the middle of the month, rather than the beginning or end, include cheaper dates to move, as a flood of individuals move based on rent payments due at the beginning or end of a month. Furthermore, weekends are obviously the...
These people are by far the most respectful, on time, personally attentive & accountable. They took care the extra mile. There was not one thing that wasnt done with precision and determination to succeed in the end result in a orderly manor and fashion. I have never seen such a great team and the owner of company made a special appearance to assess and make sure things were at the best quality. These people came prepared, were communicative, addressed any situation and did it faster then who knows what. These are professionals not day laborers. They take pride in officiant work and prompt delivery. I would recommend them in a heart beat. Thank you. I'm sure Archer travel will be making there comment as well. Totally impressed.
Watford Moving & Storage were excellent to work with and came thru at the last minute for me for the storage and moving needs at an event. I loved how diligent they were with packing up the items. Recording it throughly and taking photos of all items. Nice, polite staff. Hardworking. I will without a doubt use them again and refer them to friends when people ask me. If you're looking for any moving or storage, give them a call!!!
Moving is a lot like the Dentist - you just don't want any part of it. Watford Moving and Storage made the process a lot nicer and way faster. With a day at 100 plus degrees, Steve, along with Alan and Ron worked quickly to pack and load the truck. When we arrived at our new home they continued to work quickly and carefully. They laid runners, protected the walls and showed great care in placing the furniture. Thirteen hours in very hot weather and no one complained, used unpleasant language or slacked off. I felt that our belongings were well cared for arriving safe and sound. Steve is outstanding as the head of the crew and went way beyond to keep us informed and updated. Thank you.
Steven and his team were amazing. They were friendly, courteous, and fast. We really appreciated the way they handled our multi location move, and we're completely satisfied with the care they took to protect our house and our belongings. We will be calling Watford when our next move comes!
Watford Moving & Storage has moved me at least 4 times and has always done a fantastic job! The movers are not only prompt, clean, and professional, but they wear uniforms and always take special care to protect from damaging my home and belongings. The most recent time they moved me, the owner Daniel sent Spencer W. to do an appraisal of the moving costs. Spencer was not only on-time and courteous, but he also took the time to deliver extra boxes to me when I ran out on the day before the move. Spencer quoted me a fair price for moving and storage and I was pleasantly surprised when he came in under budget! You can't go wrong when you choose Watford Moving!
We had a very professional moving experience with Watford they were on time, wore uniforms, and were super friendly. Prices were very fair and I feel like we got a great deal for the quality of service they gave us including free moving boxes. I will highly recommend them and use them again when the time comes. I met with several other moving companies and definitely felt the most comfortable with Watford.
I have used Watford Moving & Storage for the last ten years. I move every 2 - 3 years and call these guys. They arrive on time and are very professional. They are very careful with all my furniture and fragile possessions.Highly recommend Daniel and his team!!!
The reason we chose Watford Moving & Storage was in one word - Daniel O'Brien - well maybe that's 2 or 3 words. If you'd like to deal with a moving dealer or representative, then call another firm. If you'd like your move handled by the owner of the moving company, then call Daniel O'Brien. Daniel was prompt, professional, personal and really did a near-perfect job in moving my wife and me from Calabasas to The Villages, Florida. In addition, Daniel coordinated the move of my parents larger home in the same moving van to Florida as well - all without a hitch. The Watford moving men were were hard working and honest, telling us when they made a mistake. As important, the same men who gathered our belongings on one end delivered them on them on the other . . . helps with pride of ownership of the job. Anyway, if you must move from beautiful Southern California then you need look no further . . . these are your guys.
Morgan Isidro and Juan, you guys rock!
I never liked moving, I find it always hard and difficult.
You guys went out of your way to make this one very plesent and easy, besides you were a great help.
Thank you so much guys, you are super hard workers!
Watford should be very proud to have you three in their team! Thank you for making this move a easy one!
There is nothing bad to say about this company. Thanks to Cesar & driver Richard from Stevens. Everyone very professional & everything arrived safely. All the Packers & helpers were efficient & willing to help. It really made the experience pretty painless. Thanks again to everyone!
Moving sucks unless you have these guys. Seriously, Ceaser has been a blessing to work with. He constantly checked in through out the day. His 4 man team was awesome and very efficient and quick. I highly recommend this company.
