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.
