How to Plan a Move to Another State
Moving across the country involves a myriad of additional responsibilities compared to moving across town. What’s more: it’s kind of scary leaving the familiar neighborhood and friends to set off to a new city and state. Moving long distance can also be expensive, especially if you plan your trip around a traditional moving company. Fortunately, portable storage from SMARTBOX allows you to completely customize your move to make moving to a new state simple.

Three Tips for Moving to Another State
- Invest in the right long-distance moving company. When you’re planning a move to another state, there are few things that are important as picking the right long-distance moving company for you. Don’t waste your time or money on a traditional moving company that’s going to rush you to pack all your belongings into a moving truck all in one day. At SMARTBOX, not only do we provide excellent moving services and give you all the time you need to pack and load our portable storage containers in advance, we seamlessly integrate moving and storage so you’ll only have to make one call.
- 2. Plan (and pack) ahead. Planning and packing ahead are crucial to the success of your long-distance move! The last thing you want is a last-minute scramble out the door! Pack your home ahead of time, keep it organized, and have your new home ready for when you arrive.
- 3. Organize, organize, organize. Did we mention you need to stay organized? The easiest moves are the organized moves—trust us, we’ve seen it all! Label, color code, number—do whatever works for you so that you can keep your belongings organized for your move. Have a list of emergency contact numbers (such as a local doctor at your new home, utility company phone numbers, etc.) so that you’re prepared for whatever your move throws at you.

What Is Portable Storage?
Portable storage containers are boxes that can be delivered directly to your property so you can fill them at your convenience before you move. In fact, you can pack as much as a month in advance because our storage containers come equipped with an all-seasons weather-resistant cover to protect your belongings from the elements. The doors on our portable storage containers are fitted so that you can add a padlock to the entrance for added security.
