    Factors to Consider for Cross-Country Moves

    Before you decide to relocate across the country, there are a few important elements to consider. Wondering what you should factor into your decision? Keep reading to learn more…

    • Budget: First and foremost, it is crucial to assess whether this relocation fits into your budget. Moving alone can be expensive, as all the costs can add up quickly, but depending on where you move, the cost of living may be higher. Consider what your budget looks like, and then research more about your desired area to understand the cost of living in this region. Having your finances figured out in advance will make the move a lot easier.
    • Housing Market: Ahead of relocation, be sure to assess what the housing market is like in your current city and the city you want to move to. It is important to gauge how difficult it will be to sell your current home and find a home in a new place.
    • Career and Education: If you are planning to find a new job when you move, look into the companies hiring in the area, and understand what the job market looks like in your industry. Additionally, try to gain understanding about the cost of living in the area versus what the salary for most of these jobs is. If you are looking to attend university there (or if you have school-aged children), learn more about the quality of the schools in the region as well.
    • Lifestyle: Will this area suit my interests and my daily life? This is the type of question you should ask yourself when you are planning on a major relocation. Knowing the culture of the area will help you learn more about whether it will suit your lifestyle.
    • Community: If you do not have existing social support in the region you want to move to, try to learn about the community in the area to see how easy it will be for you to make friends. Look for activities in the city and see what the neighborhood is like to discover if you will be able to find a sense of community there.

    Planning a Successful Cross-Country Move

    • Create a schedule: To stay on task and get everything done in a timely manner for your relocation, create a schedule before you do anything else. This will serve as a guide to finish your tasks and prevent you from forgetting anything from your to-do list.
    • Declutter and organize: Declutter the items you no longer want or need before you even start to pack. This will eliminate the number of items you need to pack and unpack, and it will set your new space off to a clean, organized start. Keeping everything neat and tidy throughout this process will vastly improve your move.
    • Pack strategically: As you pack your belongings, be strategic about the task. Keep items from the same room in the same box and prioritize protection for your fragile belongings. Arrange the contents of your boxes to minimize movement as much as possible.
    • Update your address: Be sure to notify all the necessary parties about your change of address. This includes the postal service, your bank, your insurance provider, your workplace, and more. Do this in a timely manner so you do not miss any important mail in the transition from one home to another.
    • Keep your essentials with you: Since a cross-country move requires a lot of travel, it’s important that you have an essentials bag with you during the trip. Anything you need daily should be kept with you, along with valuable items such as laptops or important documents.
