What to Do When Moving Out of State

Are you getting ready to move to another state? From getting all of your belongings together to finding an affordable way to move, moving to a new place can sound like a daunting task. Luckily, we’re here to help. Follow these tips for a smooth move:

1. Visit Your New State or City

Before you move to your new state or city, it’s a good idea to make at least one trip to new location to get a feel for the area. Check out of the various neighborhoods and explore the surrounding areas, tourist attractions, or simply drive and walk around and check out the scenery. It’s important to feel at home before you move into your new home.

2. Budget. Budget. Budget.

Moving out of state won’t be cheap. You need to consider hiring professionals and other expenses. Start with how much you’re willing to spend on the move and list out all the extra expenses you might need along the way. Remember to put aside a little more than you think you might need just in case anything unexpected comes up. If you are moving for a job, be sure to check whether your employer can cover part of your moving costs.

3. Research Moving Companies

If you decide to hire a moving company, make sure they are reliable and trustworthy. Check out company reviews and see if you can get a transparent flat-rate quote. With City Moving, you can ensure a flat-rate quote and have all of your move handled from start to finish. Our team goes the extra mile to make sure you’re getting the best deal for your dollar.

4. Schedule and Transfer Your Utilities

Before you move, be sure to contact your utility companies to give them the heads up that you are moving. Check on your cable and internet, water, gas, security systems and more. Schedule an installation in your new location as well to make sure everything is setup before you move in. Scheduling a transfer ahead of time will be one thing you can check out your list and one less thing to worry about on moving day.
