Washington, DC, Long Distance Movers

Moving cross-country marks an important transition in anyone’s life and moving long distance to the Washington, DC, area usually means your career is moving up. Here are a few tips to help you to fit in on The Hill:

  • Use the Metro: DC natives get around the problems of parking and traffic by using the Metro. Take time to understand its patterns and schedule. You might even think about storing your car, which may rarely get used.
  • Downsize: In order to be closer to your work, you might look for a smaller living space than you’re used to. If so, get rid of some of your things or put them in secure storage.
  • Plan for a Higher Cost of Living: The DC area can come with much higher prices than certain areas of the country—especially if you’re moving downtown. Carefully replan your budget to get ready.

One of our best tips is to use highly experienced cross country movers in the Washington, DC, area. Colonial Van Lines has a reputation for keeping our customers’ possessions safe. And we keep our promises.
