Moving Tips: Saving Time When Moving Inter-State
People relocate for a variety of reasons, and whatever these reasons are, you should always be one step ahead of all the moving-related tasks that need to be done. However, time is of the essence when it comes to moving interstate. It takes a lot of effort and patience to get things done efficiently.
To make the transition as easy and less-consuming as possible, here are a few tips for saving time when relocating interstate.
- Get started early
Conducting the last minute move can be a nightmare. First of all, an inter-state move can be one of the most challenging things you can do in your entire life. That said, you may need more time to plan, prepare, and organize every aspect of your relocation. If you don’t want to get overly stressed with moving, give yourself time and get started early as much as you can.
- Set a moving budget
Preparing a budget beforehand can save yourself time and energy. Before doing anything, decide whether to move by yourself or hire a professional moving company. Once you’ve decided, start calculating all potential expenses that come with moving inter-state. If you relocate with the help of professionals, include the amounts for moving fees, insurance, damage costs, and other extra charges.
However, if you move on your own, don’t forget to include expenses for truck rental, mileage/gas, or additional equipment rental. Having a budget allows you to determine how much money you can afford and by that, you don’t have to look for more money all over again.
- Only bring what you need
Moving inter-state gives you the opportunity to sort through your things ahead of time. This can be the right time to ask yourself what you should bring to your new place. If you get rid of the belongings you don’t want anymore, you’ll be able to reduce your moving costs while you save time from having to pack up all your possessions.
For any unnecessary item, you can opt to dispose of them through a garage sale or donation. By this, you’ll be able to relocate with a few boxes and make your move less tedious and time-consuming.
- Have a guide when hiring a mover
If you want to save significant time when moving inter-state, you should have a reliable guide in place. This guide should contain a few but essential questions to quickly narrow down your options and choose the best moving company. Using a list of questions, you can compare professionals like Movers NYC when it comes to moving services, professionalism, and pricing.
- Gather adequate packing supplies
Packing doesn’t have to be tedious as long as you prepare sufficient materials ahead of time. Getting hold of packing supplies as early as possible will definitely save time. That’s because you don’t have to run back and forth to the grocery stores to buy these things all over again.
- Pack smart
Packing is a time-consuming task. With all the things that need to be packed, you may run out of time if you just throw everything in boxes. Thus, it’s important to stay organized throughout the packing process to save time when you have to unpack at your new home. Make sure to pack items by room and label the boxes appropriately. By this, you’ll know where to place these things once you arrive in your new home.
- Have your new address ready
Your new dwelling place should be ready by the time you and your belongings arrive. Thus, it’s best to have your new address ready and organized to save a lot of time. Call utility companies for the transfer of water, electricity, gas, or cable. Take measurements of your new home to make sure your furniture pieces and other stuff will fit upon your arrival. Also, get your new house deeply cleaned a few days before the moving day. By doing all of these, you can surely save time when it comes to your moving tasks.
- Have a necessity bin
To save time immediately upon your move in, you should make a necessity bin. This should include some towels, cleaning supplies, blanket, chargers, clothes, and other essential documents. Having this bin can help you survive a first few days in your new place.
By keeping these tips for moving inter-state, you can ensure not just a smooth and time-efficient transition to your new home but also a moving experience that’s memorable and according to plan.

GIBSON SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY LAUNCHES
GIBSON GOES RED CAMPAIGN
TO RAISE AWARENESS OF WOMEN’S HEART HEALTH
Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty is honoring the federally-designated American Heart Month this February by drawing attention to heart disease, the number one cause of death of women and men in the United States. The top-ranking Boston-based real estate company, which operates in seventeen locations across Eastern Massachusetts, has partnered with The American Heart Association and will host Gibson Goes Red Day at its office in Cohasset on Thursday, February 28th. On this date, residents across Massachusetts are encouraged to wear red clothing and visit Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty at 1 South Main Street in Cohasset to receive an opportunity to register for a free pop-up portrait session. On February 14th, associates kicked off the Gibson Goes Red campaign by donning red clothing in the firm’s Cohasset offices
“The agents at Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, in particular, our South Shore-based associates, are major advocates of heart health and promoting healthy living in the fight against heart disease,” said Don Minchello, Managing Broker of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty in Cohasset. “We are proud to support awareness of heart disease, the leading cause of death in our country, and encourage healthy and active lifestyles for the community in which we work. We hope our community members will wear red and join us in our office to support this initiative.”
Since 1962, Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty has cultivated a people-centric and technology-driven culture. The mantra of family has been woven into the leadership of Co-Owners Larry Rideout and Paul McGann for over a decade, providing a business platform that prioritizes community engagement and constantly strives to make a positive impact on society.
The American Heart Association, a nonprofit dedicated to heart health, launches the Wear Red campaign annually—a nationwide effort that typically begins with Wear Red Day on February 1. With nearly a century of lifesaving work, the Dallas-based company has continued to empower people to improve their heart health and well-being, collaborating with numerous organizations and millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, advocate for stronger public health policies, and share lifesaving resources and information.
Join me this Sunday February 17th from 2-4 PM (and not 1-3 as initially planned) for an Open House at 24 Arrowood Street in Cohasset MA.
Don’t judge a book by the cover. This deceptively large expanded cape hosts five bedrooms. This three bedrooms up on the second floor and two beds on the first floor sits nicely on an oversized .36 acre lot. The opportunity for a first-floor master suite is clearly in place. Expansion potential in the lower level is yet another opportunity. This home has been well loved and awaits a buyer who may wish to add their finishes to a home that could require some attention. Located in a convenient location close to Cohasset’s highly rated schools, the village and all that Cohasset has to offer.
Anybody who knows me well knows that I love food. I love to cook, I love to entertain. For me, it is fun to fill my house with friends, and share a meal around a big table. Lots of laughter, spirited debate and camaraderie typically follow. The centerpiece of this Norman Rockwell picture is the food. And I like food, all kinds of food. I like to prepare it, I like to eat it, I just like it!
The root of all good meals is its ingredients. The fresher the ingredients, the better the meal. I did not make this up, this is an age-old adage. And if I am going to make you dinner, a good, satisfying meal, you can bet it is going to be made with the best, the freshest ingredients I can find. (Heck, they will cover up for my cooking inadequacies.)
So while it is January and many of us are trying to eat better, and be better, where does one go to get good, fresh, organic foods? One more responsible choice would be to attend The South Shore Winter Farmers and Artisans Market which opens this Saturday and runs every Saturday through the first weekend in April. Some of my favorite vendors will be there such as Holly Hill Farm, Stephanie’s Sour Dough, and Brown Boar Farm to name a few. There will be dozens of other vendors present on the upcoming Saturdays where you can hand select good, fresh, organic, locally sourced foods to fulfill your healthy living New Year’s resolutions.

The Winter Farmers and Artisans Market will be held at 465 First Parish Road, Scituate, Massachusetts 02066.
