Congratulations on your decision to move to Las Vegas! Change Real Estate specializes in helping people who are relocating to Las Vegas. While we are certainly happy to help you find a rental to start your relocation process, many of our clients have been pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to find a home to purchase in the same amount of time and usually for much less than the equivalent home or condo will rent for! We have lender partners who can help you in parallel with our home searching efforts and we have numerous resources to help make your transition to Las Vegas a smooth one! We have successfully gotten clients into homes in as little as 1 day!
For everyone, the actual process of packing your stuff and moving from one home to another is always the least pleasant part of the relocation process. Some people prefer the “do-it-yourself” method of packing and moving while others prefer the full-service movers approach. Either way, it is always good to make a plan, understand your moving budget and bid out your move to a few moving companies. We always find that using Yelp and Google Maps a great way to search for moving companies in any given area because both services give access to reviews. Of course, you have to be a little skeptical of reviews and understand that there will always be some people who are impossible to please. Generally sticking with a mover who earns lots of reviews that earn 4-5 stars is better than finding a mover with 1 or 2 5-star reviews.
If you decide that you are going to hire a moving company to help you with relocating to Las Vegas, be sure to follow these simple tips:
If you are moving a smaller amount or if you just don't have the budget to hire movers, do-it-yourself (DIY) moving is always a solid option for relocating to Las Vegas. U-Haul and other moving truck companies will rent you all the equipment and sell you any moving supplies you might need. Be sure to check with your homeowners / renter's policies to ensure you have coverage for the items you are moving. Typically, the “safe move” insurance programs that the moving van rental places offer only cover the contents of the truck in the event that you are in a vehicular accident. If you do a poor job of packing / protecting your belongings and something breaks, that will likely come out of your pocket!
Please keep in mind that some of these services may take several days to process your request to start or stop service and some (like gas service) may require an in-person appointment.
