A common moving question asked: "When should I start planning a Long Island move?" Whether you are moving in the same general area, moving to Long Island from out of state, or even moving away from Long Island, the key to a successful move is planning. 

How soon should you start planning this Long Island move? The real answer to this is: the sooner the better! The more time that you plan this move, the better the move is going to go. However, we truly understand that sometimes a move is not something you can spend months planning. There are cases in which you only have a week or more to plan your move and get this move underway.

When this is the case, here are some tips to plan this as efficiently as possible:

  1. Schedule your move with the professionals as soon as you know you are moving. Be sure that you call us here at Quality Moving & Storage when you know that you will need professional movers to handle your Long Island move. The sooner you call, the better the chances of getting a moving date that fits your needs.
  2. You may find that you do not have enough time to really declutter like you would have if you were planning this move months in advance. When this is the case, be sure that you are getting rid of those large items you will not need so you can avoid moving this extra weight.
  3. Start packing immediately if you have limited time before this move needs to happen. If you know you are not going to get this all done, then you can hire professional packers as well. Here at Quality Moving & Storage, we offer full-service moves which do include sending out a team to help you pack up your home. This is often a great option for those who need to move in a hurry or limited time frame on Long Island!
  4. Try to be as organized as possible. Whether you are packing for a move that will happen in four months or one that needs to happen in the next week, the more organized you are, the better the end results. This means labeling boxes, as well as keeping a master list of what you are packing.

Ultimately, when you know that a Long Island move is in your future, you need to plan for this move as soon as you know that you are going to be moving. The more time you have to plan, the better!
