    Default Question about moving

    I have been a member for a while and have been lurking for a long

    time, yet now I have a question for everyone.



    I may be moving here soon. I may be moving from Kansas to Nebraska.

    This may or may not happen I am not sure, yet if it does it will

    happen at tax time next year.



    My question is what is all consisted of moving from one state to

    another. What is the cost of it all and what is the least expensive

    way to make the transistion.



    I was wondering about like my car, tags, insurance, and just

    everything associated with it all.



    What do I have to look forward to, I don't want to have everything

    planned out and forget about something and then suddenly not have the

    money to do it with.



    I have Allstate Insurance for my car will that be affected, my car

    tags I will probably have to renew here, do I have to transfer when I

    get there, or can I wait till the renewall time there. When it comes

    to moving, do I have to have my car inspected in the new state to get

    the tags since I am moving from a different state.



    My daughter is on Healthwave medical insurance. Do I have to reapply

    there or does it just get transferred?



    I mean I have so much to think about and I wanted to know if there

    was anyone out there who has done it and have an idea of what I need

    to look forward to.



    Thank you all in advance

    Default Question about moving

    Check the DMV web site for the stateto which you may be moving. Also check the state website and/or the post office in that state to see if they have a new residents' guide.

    When we moved to Nevada, we had a very short time in which to transfer the registration over for our cars and get new drivers' licenses otherwise we would have been find VERY heavily. Nevada also charged a special one-time fee when we registered our cars here (above and beyond therather high annualregistration fees which along with our high sales tax help the state 'make up' for our lack of state income tax.) Hopefully your state will be better but it's better to check with official sources rather than rely on hearsay from well-meaning people like me!

    Default Question about moving



    My response will be in this color.
    My question is what is all consisted of moving from one state to another. What is the cost of it all and what is the least expensive way to make the transition. This depends on how many are moving, what you are taking, where you are going, time of year, etc. etc.
    I was wondering about like my car, tags, insurance, and just everything associated with it all.
    Varies from state to state. In Florida there is an automatic $100 tag fee, plus taxes, title, to transfer. DL are cheap here but since it is a no fault state insurance is higher. You should shop around for insurance rates.
    What do I have to look forward to, I don't want to have everything planned out and forget about something and then suddenly not have the money to do it with.
    Again, up to you but that is a long trip. When we moved to Florida a year and a half ago we had $1300 between us, an overloaded truck pulling a tiny trailer, a van, and our three year old daughter plus a ton of pets! We had no idea where we would live so it was like a roller coaster ride. I will never do that again and Florida is closer to Indiana where we moved from than you are to Nevada.
    I have Allstate Insurance for my car will that be affected, my car tags I will probably have to renew here, do I have to transfer when I get there, or can I wait till the renewall time there.
    DO NOT renew tags if you plan to move soon or you will pay double as other states will require you to change over tags, and DL within 30 days to 6 months. It varies by the state.
    When it comes to moving, do I have to have my car inspected in the new state to get the tags since I am moving from a different state. This varies according to states. California will not give you tags if your car will not pass an emissions test and you could face fines. Florida has no such testing except in the larger cities like Miami.
    My daughter is on Healthwave medical insurance. Do I have to reapply there or does it just get transferred? If you switch employers most likely you will need new insurance. Remember insurance is usually specific to that state and costs can vary.
    Check out these web sites.

    Also, research your area, look at the job market and housing market online, check out gas prices and schools. I would also consider weather, taxes, etc. These can be found on state websites and the Nevada motor vehicle website. We have wanted to move back home for over a year, but I refuse to go on a whim again and it takes time to build yourself up to make a safe move. We now have a motor home to live in (housing solved), we have a good truck and a good trailer and have lightened our load a lot. I also figure a dollar more for gas than it currently is and map quest the distance and estimate gas usage on the worst possible case (4mpg). Then set aside money to eat on as sandwiches are noble, but on the road McDonald's is pretty darn good! I also leave a cushion of $500 for emergencies, and $150 traveling money. We sleep in our motor home, but you will need to figure $50 a day for a motel. When you travel with kids or older cars
    you cannot go fast or you will burn your car up and lose your hair cos your kids are upset and tired. Also, give your self a realitic time frame, say four days to get there. In case you break down, inclimate weather, detours, etc you will still be ok. Make sure your car is in tip top shape, keep valuables and important papers in a safe in your trunk. Try to not carry cash, bank card, prepaid Visa or traveler's checks are better. Stay safe, keep hydrated, and carry a cell phone or a CB radio to call for help. Hope this helps.

    Default Question about moving

    I moved here over 9 years ago (From Louisiana to Georgia)

    It takes a good deal of planning.

    If you have children, you will need to find out what you need to transfer all records to the new schools.

    Transferring of driver's licenses and plates has to happen within a certain amount of time or you will get a ticket.

    If the health care you get for your daughter is through the state, you'll have to see if that can be transferred. You may need to reapply. See if you can do that early.

    I planned greately and things worked out fine.

    You have to get tags in the new state within thirty days. Allstate

    will recalculate your insurance based on your new zip code. Some

    states do not require a inspection. Ask at the DMV.

    Depends on the insurance and if there are doctors and hospitals that

    accept it in the new area.

    First and last months rent. Deposits for utilities. Deposits on a

    house or apartment. Don't forget to transfer all of your mail.

    Default Question about moving

    A lot of this stuff you have asked about will vary from one state to

    another. As to the insurances, ask your car insurance agent. At

    worst, you rate will go up, you should not have to change your

    policy, just change your location on the policy. The accident rate

    of the area you move to will affect the rate: if it goes up, down, or

    stays the same. Also, call your medical insurance company and ask

    them about transferring. I have never heard of Healthwave so I have

    no idea of what their policy is.



    Tags and inspection of car: I assume the new state would want

    *their* inspection tag to go with the plates. Wait on the

    inspection. Plus, not all states require an inspection. Arkansas

    does not, but the police can do an inspection as part of stopping the

    car. Tags will not "transfer" from one state to another. Contact

    the department of motor vehicles in the state you will be moving to

    and ask them how long you will have to change over your car tags. I

    assume that since your tags will expire before you move, you will

    still need to have your car inspected and tags renewed where you live

    now. You will also eventually have to have your drivers license

    changed, too. I have no idea of the time limit on that, and if you

    will have to take a test in the new state.



    Moving expenses: if you can get your stuff boxed up and get friends

    to help load the truck, then get help unloading the truck, that will

    be the least expensive way, even if you have to rent a large truck to

    move. If you need to, you can actually find moving companies that

    will allow you to load the truck, then drive the truck to the new

    location for you, then let you unload.

    Default Question about moving

    <div style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14pt;">
    I am printing off your response for future reference. I am planning on moving to the FingerLakes area of New York from Southern California about Feb. and am panicked a bit about the length of the trip and details.I have a ton of pets too and wondered how you managed. We will be dealing with a cockatoo, 2 dogs, too many cats and a rat and my three kids.I have been thinking of renting one of those Cruise America motor homes and keeping the kids and pets in that and that would lower our cost of hotels. Any ideas? I will be moving 'blind' so to speak and will not have a home to go to, so everything will have to be done after we get there and I am stumped about renting an apartment with so many pets.
    Thanks,
    Tammy

    I'd recommend doing a web search of the area, and locate the contact

    information for a rental realtor. Contact them, and see if they can

    help you locate a rental that will allow pets.
