Dallas cross country moving FAQs

Although different cross country moving companies may define them slightly differently, in general, a cross country move is one that is, at a minimum, four to five hundred miles in distance. While a long distance move is one where your destination is more than 50 miles from your origin, to be considered “cross country” the distance is greater. It can be significantly longer, of course, if you’re moving from one coast to the other; as an example, a move from Portland, Maine to Los Angeles, California is about 3,200 miles.

You’ll want to choose your Dallas cross country moving company a couple of months before you plan to relocate. If you’ll be moving during the peak season (May through September) or on weekends, you will want to select your Dallas cross country movers even earlier: as early as possible. Here’s a breakdown from there:

  • Six weeks before: Get records from doctors, dentists, schools, accountants, lawyers, veterinarians, and more. Talk to your insurance agent about transferring your property, fire, and auto policies to your new location.
  • Four to five weeks before: Inventory your possessions to decide what you want to take with you and what you want to sell or donate. This is an important step because more weight means more cost in your cross country move. Talk to your relocation coordinator about high-value possessions and, if you’ll be doing your own packing, gather appropriate supplies. Also focus on a plan for transporting pets. Here’s some helpful information on what not to pack.
  • Three weeks: Make travel plans for your family, which can include flights, rental cars, and hotels. Contact utility companies and related services about disconnections at your current home and connections at your new ones as well as banks to close and open accounts. Make sure change of address forms are complete and continue to declutter and pack. Stay in contact with your move coordinator about any changes in scheduling and needs.
  • Two weeks: Ensure that packing-related decisions are complete and determine if you need storage services. Get your car serviced if you’ll be driving to your new home; if Daryl Flood is moving it, make sure you’re clear about the process. Use up perishable food, transfer prescriptions to a new pharmacy, and make arrangements for child supervision on moving day.
  • One week: Tie up loose ends, which can include a vet appointment for pets, returning library books, draining oil from power equipment, and defrosting your refrigerator and freezer, ensuring that the doors will not close on children or pets. Pack a box of what you’ll take with you on moving day.

There are several strategies to consider, and one of them involves strategically choosing your move date. It’s typically cheaper to move when it’s not the peak moving season (May through September); so, booking your Dallas cross country moving company in October through April (avoiding Christmas time, which can also see peak demand) can help to save money. Pick a moving date during the week (Monday through Thursday) rather than the weekends for a more cost-effective move.

Before you get your quote, it’s time to declutter, getting rid of some of the possessions you’ve accumulated over the years to get a lower moving estimate. This involves tossing what no longer has value to anyone and, for items you don’t need but others would, hold a rummage sale, give belongings to friends and family, or donate them to worthwhile charities. One wonderful charity is Move For Hunger. When you choose Dallas cross country movers that partner with them, as Daryl Flood does, movers can pack up your unopened, non-perishable canned and boxed food and deliver it for use at a local food pantry—at no cost to you.

As another tip: not all cross country moving companies provide accurate quotes, so choose one that does. That way, you won’t be startled by tacked-on fees that aren’t in your budget. Here’s one more strategy. If you’ll be doing your own packing, stop by stores in your area to see if you can obtain used boxes (that they’d otherwise throw away or recycle) for free or for a small charge that would be less than what new boxes would cost.
