Congratulations! You've made the exciting decision to move to Las Vegas, one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation and a great place to live, work and play. As you prepare for relocation, the stress of planning and the daunting task of making the move might become overwhelming. This section of the Las Vegas Relocation Guide is designed to make your move a relatively effortless and enjoyable undertaking.
Below you'll find information about everything needed for relocation, from selecting a moving company and packing your belongings, to transferring your medical records and hooking up utilities at your new home.
(Note: While this section is designed to help you develop a comprehensive, step-by-step process, to ensure a stress-free move, you may find additional information related to settling into the community in the "Living in Las Vegas," and "Neighborhoods + Communities" sections of this guide.)
movingA number of options are available when it comes to planning the big move. You can do it yourself by renting a moving truck and packing and loading your own belongings, or you can hire a moving company to do the work for you. It's important to consider how far you're moving, how much you're bringing with you, and the time and costs associated with each option.
Hiring a Moving Company
If you plan to interview moving companies, ask questions, request references and get everything in writing.
Information to have on-hand when interviewing moving companies:
binding and nonbinding estimatesA binding estimate details, in writing, any and all services the moving company is agreeing to provide for you. This type of estimate ensures you will only be billed for the prestated amount. A nonbinding estimate is simply an approximation of your total moving costs and will vary based on the total packed weight of your belonging, movers' ease-of-access to your property and your packing needs.
Make sure you interview at least three companies and get everything in writing before you sign an agreement or make a deposit. Many companies allow you to estimate your moving costs online by completing inventory lists and selecting "add on" services.
utilitiesWhether you're moving into a brand-new home or a short-term rental, chances are you'll have to establish utility service. While it may seem like a hassle to turn on service for a short-term location, all services are easily transferred once you find permanent housing.
Most local utility service providers allow online bill pay and specialized payment plans. Before you begin hook-up, make sure you have the following information on hand:
