Cross Country Moving: How to Use the Interstate to Your Advantage

June 29, 2020

Out of the approximate 35.1 million people in the United States that move each year, 3 million Americans are moving across the country. These people are moving thousands of miles away from their previous homes.

Moving across the country is not an easy feat, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Take the stress out of cross country moving with a company you can trust like Sterling Interstate!

Continue reading to learn some tips for a pain-free move across the country.

Choose the Right Moving Company

When you are moving cross country, you want to make sure you hire a reputable moving company. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates interstate moving companies to keep them accountable for covering damage. A legitimate moving company, especially an interstate moving company, will be able to provide a number corresponding to the FMCSA without an issue.

Make sure that the company that you choose offers insurance for any issues that might arise.

Downsize Your Belongings

If you do it now, you’ll thank us later. After a few years of living in one place, you’ll have acquired some things that you don’t need anymore. Decluttering and downsizing your home can save you a lot of hassle when it comes to unpacking in your new home on the other side of the country.

Having a yard sale before you donate can help you make some money to put towards the cost of moving. Sell your bulky furniture and buy new when you get to the new place. It’ll save some space in the truck for more things, and it’ll save you some time when it comes to packing and unpacking your entire lives to move cross country.

Drive on the Interstate

Save even more money and drive you and your family or your pets to the new house. This is a much cheaper alternative to having your vehicle shipped and getting on a plane.

Make it into an adventure! With Sterling Interstate, you have nothing to worry about but getting yourself to your new home.

Take your time in getting there. Stop along the interstate to see sights that you would normally pass right by. Take breaks to stretch your legs at local museums or state parks. Immerse yourself in the lifestyle that you might not usually have enough time for in your busy schedule.

Cross Country Moving Doesn’t Have to Be Overwhelming!

With a cross country moving company that you trust, you will be settling into your new home in no time at all. From the stages of packing up your current home to settling into your new home a thousand miles away, Sterling Interstate has got you covered.
