Human beings are a pretty mistake-prone and forgetful lot. But don’t lose sleep over it–it comes with the territory. In fact, you should be thankful you don’t remember everything because it helps to lessen the cognitive load that would otherwise lead to serious confusion. Unfortunately, you are not likely to share that sentiment once you end up losing precious time and money, courtesy of forgetting to complete an important task prior to your move. Relocating from your present home to a new residence is one of life’s more stressful events simply because it involves so many moving parts and requires meticulous planning. Staying on top of things is important for a successful move.
Congratulations, you got a new job! This is a breathtaking opportunity, but before you gleefully say, “Yes!”, you should talk to your new employer about a moving package. After all, you must pick up and move to a new city. If they really want you and the skills you have to offer, most large companies will easily accept the negotiations you put on the table.
Despite its challenges, New Orleans is gradually becoming a place where locals and outsiders want to live, maybe due to its unique culture, including the world-famous Mardi Gras. Census Bureau data shows that nearly 50K people moved into the New Orleans metro area between 2010-2014. For most people, moving is already a huge task logistically. Planning for it financially can become an even bigger task, especially when you need to enlist the services of a moving company in New Orleans but have no idea how the company will determine what to charge you.
