Planning your move is crucial and DZ Moving is the company that will help ensure that the move goes exactly as planned. Below we listed out helpful hints on how to prepare yourself for the long distance move:

Know where your moving:

Well the first tip is a given, once you have your destination picked, house or apartment settled and a area that you will love you can then plan out the move.

Confirm Your Move Date:

Once the ink is dry on your new place plan your move date accordingly.  It is common to move 1-3 days before your closing. If you are renting be sure to confirm your move in date with your landlord.

Book with DZ Moving:

When booking with DZ Moving you can be stress free!  We can help take all the pressure off your back by providing advice and helpful hands!

Create a Schedule:

Having an established timeline of your move is a great guideline to make sure all tasks are finished beforehand.


Decluttering your home will not only make the packing and moving process easier, it will also lower the cost of the entire move. Consider having a garage sale or donating items you no longer want or need.


Once you have decluttered, you can begin the packing process. Whether you are packing yourself, or DZ Moving is packing for you make sure all items are organized and in the correct spot to make packing easier and more efficient.

Label Boxes:

Labeling is one of the most important steps in the packing process. Labeling allows you and DZ Moving to know what items go where upon arrival at destination.

Plan Your Mode of Transportation:

It is important to determine whether you will be flying or driving to your destination. This allows you to budget your time and money, and to plan accordingly around your move date. If you are moving with pets, it is best to drive to your destination if possible.

Confirm Move Date:

Call us at DZ Moving to make sure your move date is confirmed. Be sure to read over your estimate and all necessary paperwork involving your move carefully. Please ask us any necessary questions you may have regarding your estimate and other paperwork.


Once you have finally arrived at your new home, you can begin the unpacking process.
