Moving out of state can be both fun and intimidating at the same time. Since you will likely be living in your new state for awhile, it is best to make sure the area you plan to relocate to is a good fit for you and your family. As a full service moving company, 3 Guys Moving has provided services to hundreds of families re-locating to a different state. We’ve compiled a list of suggestions and tips you may want to consider if you are planning a long distance move.
Visit The Area
We live in an online world where you can buy, sell, and rent property over the internet. As a result, more and more people who relocate to a new area do not actually visit before they make the move. This can be a huge pitfall because what sounds great online may not turn out to be a good fit. Consider planning a visit to explore the area, becoming familiar with nearby shopping, entertainment, schools and other amenities.
Explore Employment Options
Consider exploring all of the nearby employment options before making a move. It is recommended that you have a job secured before moving. Many employers will be flexible with the starting date if you inform them that you are moving from out of state. If you are unable to land a job prior to your move, then consider lining up some interviews.
Learn About Schooling Options
If you have school aged children, it is a good idea to explore schooling options before committing to moving to a new area, especially out of state. Some families choose public schools while others prefer private options. You want to make sure that the options available fit your family and educational objectives of your children.
