Online Resources To Help Plan Your Move

Published on 2023-03-06

Moving is a long process and requires a lot of planning and yes, even some research if you’re going to hit the ground running, especially if you’re moving to a new city. Luckily, there are a ton of online resources you can take advantage of to help make the process run smoother. In this post, we’ll provide some of the most helpful online resources to help with your move, as well as what they can do for you.

City Data

The City Data forums are a tremendous resource if you’re moving to an area that you’re unfamiliar with. Every state and major city has its own dedicated forum where you can find years of information based on questions and answers provided by people who live there. As with any forum, you can also create new posts to ask specific questions of people in that area and the community is very friendly and open to helping others. If you have any questions that you can’t answered elsewhere, the City Data forums are a great place to turn to.

City Subreddits

Reddit is another good resource for learning about a city and what’s going on there. It’s an open forum that is generally less focused on moving issues, but like City Data you can ask about anything and get answers from people in the know. The user base of Reddit skews younger, but it’s a good place to find out about events and news from a specific area. Once on the site, simply search for the name of the city you want to know more about, and you’ll find years of posts and discussions that cover just about anything you can imagine.

Moving Checklists

A good moving checklist is highly recommended to help keep you organized and on task during the process of moving. Ideally, a checklist would be very thorough and include a timeframe of when certain tasks should be completed. To give you an idea of what this looks like, our moving checklist does just that and you can view it by clicking here. It’s easy to overlook certain things you need to do before moving and a good checklist will help make sure that you don’t miss any of the details during the hustle and bustle and getting ready to move.

Google Maps

If you’re unfamiliar with the city or neighborhood you’re moving to, Google Maps can be very helpful. You can virtually walk the streets and see what the neighborhood looks like, or take a bigger picture view to find local businesses such as gas stations, grocery stores, bars, restaurants, gyms, or anything else that you may be interested in.

The Best  Online Tools to Help You Move

Spot Crime

Safety is a concern no matter where you live and there’s few better resources to find specific information about crime in a certain area than the Spot Crime website. Not only will you find how much crime has occurred recently, but also what type of crime and the location where it happened. It can be disheartening to see that crimes have been committed in an area you plan to move, but it’s information that’s important to know before you make it your home.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
