People Moving Across The Country

Why do we move at all?

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the average person in the United States moves residences more than 11 times in their lifetime. Europeans, on the contrary, move only four times throughout their lives. So where do Americans go? How do they manage?

Life stage

Naturally, people’s paths evolve over time. Sometimes the next stage in life requires a new location. Moving to college, pursuing career advancement, getting married, retiring. All these events are big steps in everyone’s life. And very often the decision to move is driven by internal motivation rather than by factors in the environment.

How to handle the hustle of moving

 

Budget your move

Budgeting is always an important aspect of any new adventure. It is an important part of your moving and settling period, so don’t overlook it. Depending on your financial allocation and goals, you can easily sit down and put a few numbers together. You should already be familiar with the cost of living in the new region you are moving to. Think about who you want to involve in the moving process, too. Would you like to hire a moving company? What time of the year are you moving in? Would you invite friends to help you pack and move or would you hire professional movers?

Plan your packing

This is always the first step. And the step everyone wants to skip. The number one priority on your list should be to get rid of everything you will not need. Or you are not sure whether you will need. In most cases, this is a no. You could organize a donation pick up to help you free space. Then, sort everything else by category.

Think about your car

Whatever your reason for relocation is, you would most likely want to take your car with you. One option would be to drive to the new destination. However, this could be an exhausting choice. Especially if you are driving across the country. It could take you several days and you will get to your new home completely used up from all the travel. But let’s say this is not a problem because you are only moving to the neighboring state and you really want to drive. Which car will you be driving, though? With households that have more than one vehicle, it may get tricky. Even trickier if you are single with more than one car. You need to take your daily sedan but you want to take your sports car or your classic, too. Should you ask a friend to drive your vehicle? Would you pay for his trip back? In case you don’t want to deal with too much hustle and planning, ship your car with an auto transport company.

Shipping your car when moving

The main benefit of shipping your car instead of driving is that you will have one less task to worry about. Hiring a professional company to transport your car is the best and safest option. Transporting your car also proves to be the most cost-effective option when relocating. The price always depends on your vehicle's make and model, the distance, and the availability of carriers. Read more about the cost of shipping a car to understand the process fully.

First time shipping a car

If this is your first time shipping a car, make sure you choose a reliable and trust-worthy partner! Keep in mind that smaller companies are the ones who will treat you with care and respect. To them, every customer is important. Quite often bigger auto transport companies will give you a higher price. Just because they can. Smaller ones will give you the attitude of someone important. They want to make you a loyal client

Safety first

Enclosed carrier guarantees the protection of your vehicle against all weather and road elements. If you are a classic car owner, this is the way to go. Enclosed auto transport offers your car a safe journey and gives you peace of mind. This service comes with a higher price because of the extra training drivers need to be able to give to your car. You want to know your car is in good hands while you prepare for everything else that awaits you in your new adventure!

    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!

    Cay Liptak

    High five's all around! 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 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.

    Kelly Torres

    Excellent Organization 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.

    Amy Nelson

    Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

    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!

    Moving Trends

    A study conducted by Lending Tree found out that there’s a new wave of home-buyers heading south. The company analyzed all purchase mortgage loan requests in all 50 states in the period between October 2016 and October 2017. The trend of people moving South has been going on for several years now. Only between 2014 and 2015 the southern states saw an increase of almost 1.4 million people.

    According to the Lending Tree’s study, the top three destination states are Florida, Texas, and California. Washington holds the fourth position. And Massachusetts, Minnesota, and North Carolina share the fifth place. Most people looking to move outside of the state don’t want to go too far. More than half of the most popular new destination states border the current state.  South Carolina leads the out-of-state popularity, followed by four more states in the South.

    Moving to Florida

    It is no surprise that Florida is a top destination for many Americans. The Sunshine State has a history of attracting visitors from all over the country. If you consider yourself young and hip, move to Miami. Ocean Drive, the Art Deco district, and Coconut Grove are full of inspiration of all kinds. Most of the other movers are adults close to retirement age or elderly people. Baby boomers now feel more secure economically in picking up and moving to traditional retirement oases. The state attracts them with its warm climate and affordable cost of living.

    Unlike people looking for a permanent place to stay, snowbirds are only looking for a short-term change of home. This is why their moving patterns are slightly different. They would rather look for social and vacation opportunities rather than the most economically reasonable destination. Many think that the snowbird lifestyle is for the rich and famous. But today, a variety of accommodations in every price bracket allows many people to live the snowbird dream.

    Moving to Texas

    If rodeos are your thing, y’all are more than welcome to move to Texas! The State has now become popular not only because of its cowboys, rodeos, and barbeque but also because of its young vibe. Cities like Austin are now among millennials’ top destinations. Once known as a crowded college town, today Austin is the fastest growing city in the US. It has a great music scene, wonderful parks, and outdoor activities. Moving to Austin may be an amazing experience if you are a festival person, too. Just mind the festival times – traffic around these dates can be horrible.

    Economists say that Texas has a more stable economy than California and offers great opportunities. It is said that North Texas has a thriving job market with great salaries and a variety of great companies to work for.

    Moving to California

    California is the most populous and one of the largest states in the US. The Silicon Valley has made Los Angeles and San Francisco some of the most expensive cities to live in. Finding an apartment or a house could prove a bit difficult, especially if you have specific preferences about the neighborhood and the type of housing. If you are moving to L.A., budgeting your move will be of crucial importance.

    Yet, the actual best part about California is not the big city life. Its nature and a myriad of exciting opportunities when it comes to art and culture. One good outdoor place is Runyon Canyon. If you are lucky, you might even run into a celebrity or two. If you are a true nature lover though, you should move to San Francisco! San Francisco is noticeably eco-conscious. There are numerous practices in the city that make people think about a more sustainable life. The recycling and compost are a way of life and both people and businesses take them seriously.

    The California region is the heart of all-American love for classic cars! SoCal is where you will find the highest number of museums and auto shows for classic cars. You can meet celebrities who have whole collections of classics! You might meet them traveling around the shows with their polished babes.
