5 Challenges Of An Interstate House or office Move

If you ask removalists what distances they have travelled to move a client from their old home or office to their new home (or office), the answers will range from one street to the next to thousands of miles where a client has moved from one state to another. It is the latter of these two scenarios that we want to focus on here, as it simply throws up more challenges than a move that is so short a distance that it barely allows the drivers of the removal vans to get above second gear.

Moving interstate can occur for many reasons, such as to be closer to family, a new job that requires relocating, or simply the decision being made to start life anew in another part of the country. Whichever the reason, moving interstate is a significant event and one we highly recommend you organise with the help of experienced removalists, especially those for whom interstate moves are a regular occurrence.

Those removalists will tell you that there are some challenges to be addressed with an interstate move, and we thought it would be useful to highlight five of the most common, along with solutions to them.

Poor Planning

Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge faced by both the person moving and their immediate family is a lack of proper planning and preparation. This is bad enough when the home move is local, but when moving to another state, it can make the entire experience nightmarish if you have not planned properly.
