How to Move to a New City Alone


Moving to a new city alone? We understand how difficult it can be. Maybe you’re moving because of a new job or need a fresh start somewhere else. No matter the reason, Central Self Storage is here with tips for moving to a new city and how our storage units can help.

3 Tips for Moving to a New City

Start With a Plan

If you’re moving to shake things up a little, start by researching the new location. Find a home in an area that suits your lifestyle. Once you do, set a moving date. Organize your time appropriately and create a checklist not only to track your time but also to keep track of your belongings.

Make Sure Your Budget is in Check

Unless everything you own fits into a backpack, moving will be a complicated and costly venture. You can ease your stress by creating a moving budget ahead of time. Calculate the cost of having a professional moving company move your belongings, and consider the costs of doing it yourself. You’ll need to account for packing supplies, travel expenses, and extra money in the bank just in case you haven’t landed a job yet in your new city.

Get Organized

With all that out of the way, it’s time to get organized. If you can afford a professional moving company, set the date. Make sure to gather important documents, such as your birth certificate and medical records, and place them in a folder for safekeeping. Transfer the utilities to your new place, and fill out the USPS Change-of-Address form. Pack up everything and hit the road to your new location.
