How to Plan an Organized Cross Country Move

Moving is a downright stressful job, regardless of whether you are moving to the next block or cross country. The later no doubt involves more time, cost, and hard work. If you are not organized during your move, it can turn into a total mess. For cross country movers, there’s no option to take things slow because you can’t move in chunks or in priority basis. In this guide, you will find some simple and useful tips to make your move a painless one.

Start Early

Whether your cross country move is induced due to a job shift or personal preference, chances are you will know about it several weeks before.Don’t wait for the last week to start looking for a moving company to get things moving.

The moment you realize that you are step up for a long distance move, you need to start analysing and planning it in advance. First thing you need to do is to create a master to-do list and write down everything that needs to be done.

Begin with de-cluttering your home and try to get rid of anything that you consider as not worthy enough to move. Be practical while decluttering because a lot of unnecessary things will end up increasing your overall moving cost.



Cross-Off the Tasks That Are Done

As soon as you complete a task, cross it from the list so that you get an update on what is left to be done. Some important tasks include cancelling the utilities and setting up new ones to the city where you’re are moving. You may also set-up a forwarding address using USPS.

If you are in doubt regarding any task, ask a friend or search on Google and get it done. The goal is to make sure that you don’t have any tasks pending for the last moment. Cancel them from the list as you complete them so that the list becomes smaller.

Pack Smart

The last thing you would want is to forget which box has the medicine in it. It is important to keep a track of things that you would pack last and open first in your new home. So, at least have two boxes that say ‘pack last and open first’ and keep all the essentials like toilet paper, diapers, scissors, and all medicine in that box.

While packing, you may also color code each room to know which items belong to which room. So, when you arrive at your new home, you may just unpack the bedroom and kitchen boxes, and leave the rest for the weekend.

You must also keep a few bags that you will carry with you in your car and make sure it’s kept in a separate room so that the cross country movers don’t take them accidentally.


Get As Much Help You Can

Cross country moving is a hectic task so try to get as much help as you can. Don’t shy away from asking friends, family and neighbours for help. Even a small amount of help will matter and lessen your load so make sure you ask.

You may also ask your partner or someone in the family to be in the new house when the cross country movers arrive. This way you will be more organized and the person who stays behind will not have to rush in order to reach the destination before the movers.

Cannabis Markets Spreading into Mexico and South America

According to a recent snapshot representing how CBD gains momentum in the United States, companies are eyeing the next big markets which are essentially the south of the border in South America and Mexico. It was back in November 2018 that Mexico declared its approval for the acquisition and purchase of cannabis products at retail stores and dispensaries across the country to serve the population.

The potential market of Mexico was a major entry in the market which was less publicized than North America. Sixty licenses for cannabis products have been currently approved by the regulators and decision about the availability of hemp-derived products like CBD on general retailer shelves is expected soon.

One of the companies that benefit from Mexico’s changing legal laws is CannaOne Technologies Inc., a company engaged in the development of technological tools to serve different segments of the cannabis industry. It has introduced the flagship product named BloomKit that presently takes advantage of the new southern market potential. CannaOne has recently announced its plans to enter into a formal collaboration with Manna Health Services to develop, launch and run an online cannabis marketplace for the country. Manna Health is based in Mexico City and is permitted to buy, sell, import, export and distribute anything related to health and wellness.

Solomon Riby-WilliamsThe CEO of CannaOne Technologies, Solomon Riby-Williams said, “BloomKit, our enterprise digital solution will provide Manna the ability to offer a fully-functional online cannabis marketplace after Mexico gets final regulations about the sale and use of CBD products. The software will, for example, allow monitoring and tracking delivery and pick-up services, recording current and historical analytics and more. All these will be available with the benefit of a simple to use e-commerce platform.

The BloomKit software is designed to give the clients the capability to operate according to the regulatory laws imposed by bodies across the world. It is the first product in the suite and a turn-key enterprise solution which any B2C company can utilize. The functionalities of BloomKit make sure the users can provide the highest levels of continuous customer satisfaction.
