Planning a long distance move? If you’re like many homeowners making a move this fall, preparing a long distance move can be a stressful time.
This month, Tucson Moving Service gathered the three best tips for making a smooth long distance move from start to finish. Here’s what you can do to make a successful move to a new city.
Tip #1: Consult Neighborhood Databases
Thanks to today’s advancements in technology, there are numerous online databases dedicated to collecting and analyzing important information on U.S. cities.
Neighborhood databases provide full descriptions on area demographics and characteristics. Websites such as City-Data.com and NeighborhoodScout.com offer comprehensive profiles of cities with relevant statistics such as cost of living and income level. StreetAdvisor.com is hyperlocal, focusing on ranking neighborhoods and streets for popularity.
For those interested in walkability, WalkScore.com rates neighborhoods based on their proximity to stores, schools, parks, and more.
Tip #2: Contact City Hall
One of the best ways to get the scoop on a brand new city is to contact the city itself. Call city hall and request new resident resources, or visit the official city website to get familiar with what’s happening around town.
Many city websites offer downloadable online guides for visitors and residents, and officials can also provide information on utilities or find a local Internet provider in your area.
Tip #3: Check Out User Forums
Browsing through user forums is a great way to learn about a city through a local’s point of view. Online forums typically provide honest feedback from current or former residents, and allow users to ask specific questions about an area.
User forums like City-Data.com, Reddit, and Nextdoor are popular resources for new residents, as local forums cover a wide range of different topics of interest, such as crime rate, affordability, neighborhood activities, and more. In fact, you might even find a friend who shares your interests!
