Moving & Relocation Guide
When you're moving, you're also relocating. An inseparable part of every moving process, relocation can take you to another continent, to a neighboring state or even to an adjacent NYC borough.
But relocation is not just about distance.
As with moving, the success of every relocation process depends on the services rendered by your New York company and on your own organization and careful planning.
Moving costs are calculated according to one of two factors: hourly rate charges or the actual weight of the property moved. Whereas the former usually applies to local moves, the latter is used for long distance moves. Location, and the total distance traveled by your mover, are additional factors which are taken into account when the overall relocation price is calculated.
When you plan your move to or from New York, a moving checklist is a vital asset. Specifying the various tasks that need to be completed prior to the move will make this event much easier to handle. Reminding yourself to find a mover on time, to make necessary storage arrangements, and to notify all relevant institutions of your upcoming departure - are all items that should be included in your checklist.
Yet your checklist is not just about moving, but also about relocating. Rather than just helping you move out of your old home, an organized list will also enable you to quickly settle down in your new location. Officially changing your address and notifying proper authorities, preparing all required documents in advance (particularly if you are moving overseas), registering your children in schools and finding out what the requirements are for moving with pets, are but some examples of imperative relocation tasks.
Before you relocate, it might be useful for you to find out some pertinent facts and figures about your new destination. Significant parameters like cost of living, insurance rates, taxes and salaries may differ considerably between states and cities, and you want to prepare yourself for any forthcoming lifestyle changes. Online tools comparing between American cities and calculating the various costs entailed in relocation, may come in handy if you're moving between states within the USA.
To help facilitate the process, sign up to an online move and relocation planner. Detailing the various tasks that are involved with moving and relocation, online planners can even send you relevant 'To-Do' reminders at the appropriate time.
