It might sound easier than it is, however with little preparation and planning you can handle all the stuff easily.

Checklists are mandatory
It is necessary to maintain checklists as they make packing and moving a lot easier. For business moving checklist should be prepared with care as it includes valuable office inventory. Checklist comes of great help when unpacking as well.
Pack essentials separately
If you moving over long distance then there is some stuff that you will necessarily be in need. List and pack that stuff separately. Usually such stuff includes extra kids wear, nightwear, necessarily supplies like tooth brush and water bottle. This will avoid unpacking of the boxes on the go which is really troublesome.
Pack expensive stuff separately
You need to make sure that you do not mix and pack your expensive stuff with other stuff. If possible carry expensive stuff on your own or look for the insurance policies of the movers to move such stuff.

Juts do not make use of grocery bags and ordinary boxes to pack your stuff. Make use of carton boxes which are specifically designed for packing and moving. They are sturdy and can easily handle rough handling protecting the stuff inside.

Simple as that if you make use of these tips you will have an easy moving experience for sure.
