The east and west coasts of the United States provide two completely different ways of living. Those curious enough to experience both lifestyles will lead them to pick up and move across the country, which can present many challenges. Moving across country isn’t your typical moving process, and a detailed approach to this move is crucial. Preparing well in advance is essential when moving from coast to coast. So whether you’re moving from New York to San Diego, Boston to San Francisco or Los Angeles to Boston, below are some tips on what you need to know about planning your move to the opposite coast.
DIY Moves Are Almost Impossible
Do it yourself moving is a good option for those you want to lower moving costs, especially if your family is moving a short distance away. However, when moving from coast to coast, a DIY move is nearly impossible. Driving a U-Haul truck across country yourself isn’t very cost or time effective, and hiring a moving company like Isaac’s Moving is guaranteed to remove the stress attached to moving across the country. Isaac’s drivers, movers, and long-distance moving experts are dedicated to helping your next long distance move go as smoothly as possible.
Bring the Basics
Going through your boxes to check for belongings you don’t need anymore can result in a significant price drop, so check to make sure you’re only bringing the basics. Starting your life on a different coast means bringing what you need in the foreseeable future and building a new life, leaving the old behind. Moving across country can add up, so any opportunity to lower the price is worth it.
When moving across the country, moving insurance is a must. Though rare, it is possible your items could get damaged during the move. Isaac’s offers different options for local/long distance and international to insure your belongings, such as Released Value Coverage, Full Replacement Value Protection and more.
Don’t forget to factor in transporting vehicles when moving from the east to west coast or the west to east coast. We can arrange full-service automobile shipping throughout the country and around the world. Isaac’s Storage facilities can also accommodate your vehicles for short or long term care in climate controlled warehouses that are licensed, bonded, and insured, and has state of the art 24-hour surveillance cameras.
