Moving Tips & Guides
Reasons for Moving
There are many reasons why a person or a family might choose to move. These reasons can range from personal and financial reasons to employment reasons and even a simple lifestyle change or change of scenery. Getting a better grasp and understanding of these reasons might help you better prepare for your move.
Private vs. Chain Moving Companies
Consider these things when trying to decide between a privately-owned moving company and a large chain: Price, customer service, reputation, equipment, services offered and experience. Whatever aspects matter more to you, keep those at the top of your list.
Saving Money While Moving
Moving can be expensive, but with some tricks up your sleeve you might save a few bucks. Reuse packing material or use alternative materials that you already have like towels and t-shirts for packing up fragile items. Move during the off-seasons of fall and winter. Write off some of your relocating expenses. Pack your own stuff – you won’t spend money on a service and you’ll be sure you packed everything. Downsizing your stuff will also help save you money. Most shipping companies charge by weig
Make a Moving Budget
Knowing what you can afford ahead of your move will make it go that much smoother. Use a gas calculator to make sure you budget enough for gas, don’t assume you’ll find enough free boxes for your entire move. You may even need to rent special tools or equipment. It’s better to be proactive than reactive, you’ll stress less and probably save more.
Tips for Moving in the Summer
Typically the most popular season of the year to move, the summer is when most moving companies get inundated with appointments from people looking to relocate during a laid-back time of the year when schools are out and the weather is nice. Of course, as with any move, moving during the summer can have its challenges and difficulties, so familiarizing yourself with them can help you become better prepared.

First Class Moving
Erik and First Class Moving originally moved us to Shreveport from Roanoke, TX in December. As fate would have it, four months later, we needed to move back to Texas. My very first call was to Erik. Why do I continue to use his moving company? Well because there is no one I would trust as much as I do him. Erik will sit down with you to discuss the bid and also to find out about you personally. With me, he could sense I was a little stressed. He actually prayed with me. In a society that wants to put God and faith on a backburner, it is refreshing to know that someone with a deep faith could sense my turmoil and help turn my thoughts in the right direction. Will I always use First Class Moving? Absolutely! I recommend this company to anyone moving in-state, out-of-state or just around the corner. There is no other moving company that will take care of your property and provide some of God's love into your move!

United Movers Group
We had a lot of stuff that was broken and we're still going through for our claim. It started when they didn't send enough packers and they didn't bring a big enough truck so they had to do two different loads and the left some of my belongings behind and they had to be shipped. And everything in that crate was broken. They delivered us during a blizzard and couldn't get in the driveway. It was not very good customer service. I don't blame the driver, I just think there was really poor communication between the company and the employees. And we are still going through boxes and finding broken things. And all of our wood furniture was scratched.

Moving to Louisiana?


One of the most culturally diverse and unique southern states, Louisiana seems to be a whole different country all on its own. Those who have lived in Louisiana or even visited for just a few days can tell you how enchanting of a place it is. From the allure of great food, the colorful Creole and Cajun culture, the uplifting sound of jazz music and the vibrant nightlife in New Orleans that attracts millions of people every year, to the comforting sense of community that you get from the people who live there, Louisiana is truly a hidden gem.

The resiliency of the state and the city of New Orleans to rebound from the disaster of Hurricane Katrina even stronger is a true sign of the strength of the people from Louisiana. It is a place where one can experience an array of different sights, sounds, smells and tastes, and still never fully experience it all.

If you’re moving to Louisiana, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to Louisiana

Louisiana Climate

  • Located in the southern United States on the Gulf of Mexico, the state of Louisiana features a subtropical climate that is relatively mild, albeit humid during the summer months. At that time of year, temperatures can hit the upper 80s and low 90s, although the humidity can often add to that in terms of how hot it feels. During the rest of the year though, the temperature tends to stay mild, with fall and winter temperatures rarely dropping below freezing and spring temperatures hovering in the 60s and 70s.

Moving Specifics

  • Registering your Car: Upon your arrival in Louisiana after moving to the state permanently, you have a total of 30 days to update your registration and have your vehicle registered in the state before you may be required to pay a penalty. (Helpful Link: Louisiana DMV)

  • Obtaining a Louisiana Driver’s License: A Louisiana Driver’s License can be obtained at any Louisiana OMV (Office of Motor Vehicles) location. The state requires new Louisiana residents to update their license from their previous state to a Louisiana driver’s license by providing proof of insurance and registration of the vehicle in the state of Louisiana. If you fail to update your driver’s license you may have to pay a fine.

  • Real Estate: The average listing price for homes in Louisiana is $209,391, while the median sales price is just over $165,000. The Louisiana Association of Realtors is the official real estate resource for the state of Louisiana.

(Helpful Link: Louisiana State Moving Resource Page)

Schools

  • The state of Louisiana is broken into different areas called parishes. Each parish, which would be comparable to a county or township in most other states, has its own individual school district. There are hundreds of different school districts spread throughout the state, each containing varying levels of education ranging from elementary school to middle and junior high school to the high school level. In addition, there are a number of well-known colleges and universities located within the state such as Louisiana State University, Grambling State University, Louisiana Tech University, the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, the University of Louisiana-Monroe, McNeese State University, and Southeastern Louisiana University.
