Relocation with a moving company

So part of my deal was relocation... the company showed up when expected packed everything my wife asked them too and asked about things we didn't even want to take. They showed up today, when they said they would, and loaded the semi with all our stuff. Seemingly too really good care of everything, making sure it was packed well and shrink wrapped. The head guy apologized that he would not be there at the end of the trip as he was taking another load some place different.

We are also having a car shipped to and the guy called before he showed up and was right on time.

It was really nice not to really lift a finger and have these guys bust their butts helping us out. The say they do the same on the other end.

I was not completely impressed with the other part of the relocation company but the household goods part was great.

Now only a 14-15 hour drive with the wife, 2 dogs and a cat to go before Austin in our home.

I like it when everything works as planned, I moved from Dallas TX to Norcross 30 yrs ago.

the Co. that moved us did a great job They even had our clothes in the right rooms. Save all your paper work, We got hit with the moving expense as unearned income. Some one at my office filed the wrong tax forms :angry:

I went through one of those events once. It was great. A guy showed up with a station wagon full of flattened boxes, packing material and tape. He said to make a pile of the things I didn't want to go on the truck.

A one point I went to get another doughnut from the box my neighbors brought over that morning and they were gone. I had neglected to put them in the "don't pack" pile and we went through 7-8 boxes before we found them.

When the truck arrived they grabbed two hand trucks and had my stuff loaded in a flash.

Painless...

These movers are hit or miss. I relocated a few times with the government and have had the full spectrum of guys showing up reeking of booze, to people who packed it better than I wouldve.  Most were somewhere in the middle and wood furniture never made it unscathed any time.

That's nice to able to get everything down in one fell swoop. We moved and a had a car shipped last year and it was somewhat of a pain to find a moving company that could do both (shout out to Three Men and A Truck). Austin seems like a hot place to move right now and it's not a bad place to settle in my estimation - taxes alone make it financially worth it in my opinion. I don't envy a 15 hour drive with a dog and two cats though. Not sure I could manage that.

Texas has a lot of hidden taxes, especially county property taxes. Depending on how much you plan to put into a house and your salary it can be a higher tax burden than states with income taxes.

 

I moved from Harris County Texas to Pima County Arizona recently for a slight pay raise. We gained a ~2% state income tax burden but lost ~2% of our property tax burden and since I make less than our house is worth, we have more to save every month. We also don't have to worry about power outages caused by a stubborn legislature with poor foresight, hopefully.

I used to live in Texas before moving in California in 2015. Rn Idk actually on how much taxes were raised there. However, couple of days ago I talked to my grandmother and she said that "I think that taxes are raising by gov. each week jesus christ". xD

I think that I will move recently back to Texas to see my grandparents. Maybe we will think about the plan of how to relocate to another place of living. In this case, I will definitely call to <my favorite moving company> so they can help us. All these COVID restrictions we all tired off is actually another nightmare apart from taxes...
