Moving from one place to another is a very strenuous activity. You have to pack then unpack your stuff, not to mention adjusting to the new environment. Think about the long drive or shipping your whole stuff from one state to another. If you are moving, especially out of state, I suggest you get help. There are a lot of long distance moving company that can help you with your moving needs. They rent trailers that you can use to load up your stuff and they deliver it to your state of destination as well. It means they will do door to door service. They also offer moving supplies such as boxes, pads, tapes, etc. and moving advice in case you need one.
Don't stress out yourself too much, let the moving company do the job. You have more important things to do, like making sure that your kids or your pets will adjust into their new home.
