Moving from New York to Colorado

Moving from New York to Colorado

Two decades ago, moving from New York to Colorado wasn’t an obvious choice. However, investments in cities such as Denver have attracted many new residents, making Colorado’s population growth among the highest in the nation during the last few years.

Therefore, moving to the Centennial State today can be a great idea. Yet, moving is definitely not a trivial process, unless you plan it through carefully. In this post, we will offer some useful information and moving tips to make it all easier.

What should I know before moving to Colorado?

Wonderful picturesque nature

Colorado has some of the tallest mountains in the country – some peaks reach over 14,000 feet. The state itself is positioned at an average altitude of 6,800 feet above sea level. It is something to keep in mind, as your body may need some time to adapt. The colorful state is not all about mountains though, as there are also canyons, plains, and even deserts, – all the more reasons to enjoy the great outdoors.

Friendly culture

Moving to Colorado will give you the chance to engage in many outdoor activities and experience a slower pace of life, unlike the hustle and bustle of New York City. Embrace yourself for friendly small or long talks with the locals. Also, consider it a perfect time to enjoy each moment with your friends and loved ones.

Lower cost of living

The average cost of living in Colorado is almost 40% lower than in New York. Of course, this will vary depending on where you relocate. In Denver, for instance, it might be more expensive than in rural areas. However, on average you would need to earn a minimum salary of around $40,000 annually to maintain a decent standard of living, which is completely possible if you have a stable job.

How would you prepare to move from New York to Colorado?

Step 1: Choose the city you would like to relocate to. Denver can be a good option in terms of the labor market. However, you may find other interesting options in other areas such as Colorado Springs, Boulder, or Fort Collins. The Colorado government page can be a very useful source to get you started.

Step 2: Set up a budget plan for moving costs and initial living expenses in Colorado.

Step 3: Research moving and auto-shipping companies. The more thoroughly you research the reliability, prices, and services of these companies, the more successful your overall experience will be. As you check reviews and learn about your options, keep in mind to balance the quality of the service with the offered price.

Step 4: After choosing the moving companies, it is time to start packing. Update your information – recurring bills, student or car loans, as well as credit cards and bank accounts – as soon as you secure a new address.

Enjoy the move! One of the best parts of moving to another state is enjoying the “honeymoon” period of exploring and getting acquainted with the excitement that awaits, before diving into work.

How to ship a car from New York to Colorado?

It is a fact that, unlike in New York City, public transportation in Colorado is far from being efficient.

This is why shipping your car from New York to Colorado will make your life easier.

To ship your car with peace of mind you need the right auto transport partner. Research and read customer reviews. Then call the companies to discover their competence and customer service level. Ask questions about how auto transport works and what is the real cost to ship a car. A trustworthy company will give you all the answers.

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!

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!

Truly positive experience

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.
