Moving from Maine to Texas

Moving from Maine to Texas

Did you know that the population of Texas is expected to surpass 29 million this year? Texas has been the second most populous state in the US for many years in a row. With thousands of people relocating from California, Illinois, and New York every year, it will not be a big surprise if Texas manages to become the most populous state and surpass California one day.

If you are contemplating moving from Maine to Texas, but not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we will review the main reasons why people choose to call Texas home, how to plan your move, and how to ship your car from Maine to Texas.

Why do people relocate to Texas?

There is a gamut of reasons why people decide to pack up their whole lives and create a new home in Texas. In the Lone Star state, you will find steady job growth and affordable housing and living costs. But that’s not all. Prepare to soak up the famous southern hospitality, while exploring the state’s rich culture and enjoying a warm welcome (pun intended) as a new transplant.

Talking about all things warm, moving from the northeasternmost state in the US to The Lone Star state means that you will have to get used to the warm climate most of the year. Forget about cold winters or snow in Texas.

Unless you move to the Panhandle or the mountain parts of West Texas, you should not worry about preparing for snowy winters. High temperatures and dry heat characterize most parts of the state.

Another important reason why people enjoy Texas is its delicious cuisine and music vibes. Oh, and did we mention that there is no state income tax in Texas? You can use that extra savings for a project of your choosing.

And if one day you grow weary of the Texas landscape, you can hop in your car and drive to any of the four bordering states. In contrast, Maine has only one bordering state.

How would you prepare to move to Texas?

It is always wise to prepare and plan in advance, even if you are moving across town. So moving from Maine to Texas can be quite a challenge if you do not do your homework. And by homework we mean looking for housing, researching the cities and neighborhoods well in advance. Maybe even take a trip to Texas and explore the state before you commit to it long-term.

In general, good organization is key to a successful move. Make a to-do list and start checking off those tasks as you complete them. You may not be able to completely eliminate the stress from your move, but keeping things well organized will help ensure a smooth transition.

If you also plan to look for employment in Texas, start the job hunt in advance, explore your opportunities to find what works best for you. Do not worry about in-person interviews. Online interviews have become quite the norm lately – don’t let the distance stop you from getting that job.

If you have one or more cars, consider shipping them to Texas. Public transportation in Texas is far from perfect, so a personal vehicle is not a luxury but a necessity.

How to ship my car from Maine to Texas?

Shipping a car is easy when you learn how it works. When you start researching housing, jobs, and the best neighborhoods, spend some time researching car shipping companies. Your car is one of your most valuable possession, and you want to put it in the hands of one of the most reliable and trustworthy auto shipping companies in the US.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
