Visit Your New City

While you can get a lot of information about anywhere in the US on the internet, nothing comes close to seeing things yourself. So take a trip to the city and the specific areas and neighborhoods you plan to live and explore the places a bit. This physical exploration might open your eyes to things you can’t see online and that will help you decide on the area and neighborhood that best suit you.

Take Into Consideration the Difference In Living Costs

You also want to be sure on how your new state compares to your current one in terms of cost of buying or renting a house, transportation costs, food, clothing, and other living costs. Is it more or less, is there an advantage in terms of wage/living costs ratio? What about state taxes?

If you are moving from Florida to San Francisco for example, you know taxes and living costs will become higher though wages are higher in San Francisco. Therefore, make decisions that you can easily accommodate the changes that comes with it.

Secure A Job and Housing

Secure a job before moving to your new state or at least have certainty that you will find an employment that suit you within three months of relocating. You can leverage your existing network and social media to get a new job over there. Once you’ve decided to move, you can place an “open for job” notification on your profile on Linkedin and annouce to your online network that you are looking for opportunities in the new state. Be sure that the state has considerable opportunities for people with your kind of education. 

While sorting the employment, lock down your housing so you will have a home to move to in the first place. If you are still raising school-age kids, you also need to narrow down your search to specific schools and begin contacting them.

Begin Early With Your Moving Plans

Start by researching what are the moving costs from your current state to your new state. Use the information you gather to draw up a moving budget. An interstate move is a long distance move as well. Therefore, you will need to contact a long distance mover that provide interstate moving services. Contact about three companies for free estimates.

Only deal with long distance moving companies that are licensed and registered with the FMCSA. Under the regulation of FMCSA, moving companies are obligated to visit your apartment for inspection and to quantify your items so they can provide you free estimates. So begin contacting companies at least six weeks ahead of your move. By four weeks to your planned moved date you should have contracted a moving company and have your interstate move sheduled by the company.

License and Insurance Coverage

A state to state moving company must be first of all be licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and have a USDOT number. The FMCSA ensures that the companies comply with relevant federal regulations including having insurance coverage. Every professional moving company will have their USDOT number displayed on their website. You can use the number to obtain their license, safety, and compliance information on FMCSA website.

Physical Office and Local Presence

You know a moving company is legit when there is a brick and mortal office somewhere. While online presence and responsiveness is another thing to look out for, a physical office is very important. In addition, you also want to deal with a company that has local presence in your state. National moving companies have branches or representatives nationwide. There should be a contact person locally that you can walk up to if you have any challenge.

Full Service Company

Work with full service companies, even if you don’t require a full service move. The advantage of using a full service mover is because they are versatile and can help with almost anything your moving requires including full service packing, provision of packing supplies, moving and storage, loading and unloading, and more to provide a stress free moving experience for you.  

Recognitions and Certifications by Relevant Business Organizations and Associations

The company must also be a recognized business by relevant business organizations and associations in the moving industry such as the American Trucking Associations (ATA) or Better Business Bureau. These associations sometimes conduct background checks and yearly reviews on moving companies who are their members to maintain membership status.

 

Standard Practice

Professional movers will follow professional standards and ethics when delaing with their customers. Some of these standards includes home visitation/survey which can be done either physically or virtually. Provision of free in-home estimates, bill of lading and other important documents associated with your move. Any company that promise to give you an online quote without requesting to survey your home is not reliable. 

Customer Reviews

Deal with a moving companies that have excellent track record. A company can manage to have all the paper works and yet not deliver excellent customer service. That’s why reading customer reviews are important. Go to websites like Yelp and Nextdoor to read what customers say about the company’s service. If there are complaints that are common to a specific company, you know that’s a red flag already. The least thing you want is a very positive experience with movers so look before you leap.
