It may not be as difficult as wrangling a herd of cattle, but figuring out the logistics of making a move in one long haul isn’t easy. When you’re moving across town you have the luxury of making as many trips as you need to get everything into your new home. But if you’re moving to another state or even just out of town, you’ll want to get everything loaded up and moved at once whenever possible.

Let’s take a look at the three P’s of getting everything moved in one trip.

Purge First

First things first – purge, purge, purge! The name of the game is to minimize what you have to move. It’s the best way to ensure you’ll get everything in one haul.

Plan Accordingly – An Absolute Must for Single Haul Moves

College students that have little more than a closet of clothes may be able to throw things in boxes, load up a pickup truck and get moved in one fail swoop without much forethought. For the rest of us with apartments and houses full of items that have accumulated over the years, a lot more planning is involved in pulling off a single haul move.

Pack Efficiently

Once a box is taped up the wasted space will go unused. Packing is an art, and when you know what you’re doing you’ll be amazed at how much can fit in a single box.

Moving everything in one trip may be necessary for people that are doing a long distance move, but it’s also a great idea for people that are just going across town. Getting everything in one haul is more economical and eco-friendly since it requires less gas to get the job done.

So purge, plan accordingly and pack efficiently if you want a one and done move.
