Moving from one part of your own city to another part can be a stressful experience. Moving to another part of the country—maybe even all the way from once coast to the other—can, if not handled correctly, be one of the greatest ordeals a person can endure. It’s not just a matter of a new home, but new cities, unfamiliar restaurants, street layouts and stores, and entirely different “vibe” and way of doing things. And while all of these things can be great once you’re adjusted, dealing with them all at once can be too much to handle, and that’s on top of handling the actual move itself.
That’s why, as unusual as it may be to think of it at first, it may be time to ask, “Should I even bring my car along?”
The Long Haul For Long Distance Movers
So you’ve picked your long distance movers, you know what you have to box up, and you know that using the car is going to cost you several days of driving and staying in hotels or motels as you make your way to your final destination.
There is simply no way this is going to be easy. There’s going to be hours of sitting during this marathon drive, no time to really stop and appreciate the entire country that you’re driving past because you’re on a schedule, and you’ll have to take your food, sleep and bathroom breaks wherever you can get them while you’re on the road.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
If you’ve got an older car, it’s been completely paid off, and you’re starting a new life anyway, this may be the time to think about getting a new automobile. Depending on your financial situation, you can think about selling your car, hopping on a plane, and enjoying a leisurely flight of only a few hours, ready to settle down and begin a new life on a new coast. Your cross country movers are being paid to take good care of your things. You should take care of yourself and your family.
If the finances allow it, you should think about more ways to make your new start truly new. A comfortable flight will give you and your family more time to prepare for the move, and less stress when the time comes. Think about saying goodbye to the faithful car and hello to an easier transition to help start you on this new life in a new part of the country.
