Moving Long Distance with Children

Traveling long distance with children can be a stressful task. Trying to keep everyone happy along the route, making sure they’re occupied and hoping you all get there one peace is often done on a wing and a prayer. Well, fear not! Download your playlists and hop in the car, we’ve got the tips to get you there!

Comfort:

Everyone being comfortable in the car, especially during a long drive, can go a long way to making the ride enjoyable. If you are going on a particularly long trip, bringing a fresh change of clothes is a way to make your halfway point a complete refresh for everyone. Keep a box in the car with toothbrushes, toothpaste, wipes and hand sanitizer for easy use. This way everyone can freshen up when they need it.

Entertainment:

Kids get bored easily, add a long trip with no room for movement, and you can already hear the age old question coming “are we there yet?” Pack a box in the car with books, DVD’s (if you have a portable DVD player), toys, pillows, blankets, coloring books and crayons to keep everyone occupied. Make sure the iPod and iPad are loaded up with plenty of music and apps and don’t forget a few sets of headphones!

Pack Snacks:

Since you’ve hired College Grads to pack and haul all of your belongings, there is plenty of space in the car. Pack a cooler of fresh foods, plenty of water, and easy to eat snacks for the road. Keep kids in a good mood with mood bosting fresh fruits and stay away from things like candy and messy chips that can get all over the seats. Save yourself the cleanup later!

When you hire a professional moving company to take care of the packing and transportation of your household items, you have plenty of time to pack the car and gear up the family for a successful drive to your new home.  Happy travels!
