Tips to Help You Successfully Carry Your Your Long Distance Move

Once you have chosen long distance movers in Washington,  DC, such as Suburban Solutions, you can begin to prepare for the big day. The following tips have been provided by our moving team. 

If you are packing your own belongings, label the boxes in a way that makes it easy for you and your movers to identify the room in which they should be placed. A color coding system tends to be one of the best ways to do this. 

  • Don’t forget to defrost your fridge and freezer ahead of time.

  • Be sure to drain your washing machine if you plan to move it. The same should be done with your dishwasher.

  • Remove any flammable items, including charcoal, gas, and liquids, from machinery, grills, ovens, vehicles, tools, lawn mowers, and so forth.

  • Make sure to turn off your gas line before you move your gas appliances (when applicable).

  • Unplug all of your electric appliances before the move.

  • Create a safe, wide path through your home, garage, and basement. This space should remain free of items and all the time, and be wide enough to allow any large furniture to pass through.

  • If you live in a housing association or community, confirm ahead of time that the truck can park in the designated area. 


Make sure the street is big enough for the truck, and be mindful of low hanging tree branches or wires.

  • Make sure your children and pets will be comfortable and occupued. You should also keep them away from the movers to prevent a trip and fall or other potential injury. 

Finally, be sure to book your long distance movers in Washington,  DC sooner rather than waiting until the last minute.
