4. Budget for the big city cost of living

If you are moving to a big city, it can be rally challenging. Living in a big city is more expensive than living in a small city. The housing, schooling, transportation, services and even taxes will be costlier than the you used to pay earlier. The higher the cost, the more carefully you have to manage the finances.

But with big cities, come better opportunities. Big cities have more scope of earning than the small towns. If you are smart enough, you will be able to earn more there. Estimate the cost of the living of the big city and prepare accordingly.

5. Get moving boxes from grocery stores or liquor shops

How will you pack everything? Of course you will need big boxes to pack everything for the move. Pay a visit to your nearby local grocery store or liquor shops to see if they have any old used boxes. Generally, such stores keep big boxes in spare and you can ask them if you can grab some boxes. This way, you will also save paper while your moving. Just make sure that the boxes are in good condition and not ripped or broken.

6. Dealing with important documents and paperwork

Make sure to take good care of all the important documents and papers such as passports, house deeds, wills, ID cards, insurance papers etc. collect them and put them in a safe file and carry these documents personally with you as long as possible. This file should then be placed at a safe place where you will not lose it. Nobody can afford to lose or misplace these important documents and therefore it is really important to take utmost care of these papers while moving.

7. Search for the job in the new city

Okay, one of the most important things is having a job in the new city as soon as you settle there. If you will spend days and weeks for job interviews, how will you bare the initial expenses? If your company already has a branch in the new city, well and good but if it doesn’t, you will have to start from the scratch so it is advisable to apply for the jobs in that area even before you move. This way you will have a job in your hand as soon as you shift and settle at the new place.

8. Explore the new city

moving to a new big city might feel lonely and gloomy at first, but the way to get adjust to the new world around you is by getting to know it better. In the very beginning, the unfamiliar surroundings and new people and faces might confuse you but with time, it will get better. All you have to do is explore. Get to know your surroundings, your neighbors, the cafes and restaurants nearby, general stores etc. use google maps on your smartphones to get a city map and start exploring!

9. Change your old address to the new one

This is one such step which most of the people completely forget to do until they’ve already shifted to the new house. This is an important step because if you don’t change your address, your shipments, parcels, couriers etc. will be delivered at the old place and you will then have to make several calls to get it delivered to the new address which can be a pain. So it is important to change your address ahead of time so that your bills, credit card statements, parcels and packages can arrive on time at the right place without any delay.
