So you’re looking to move to or from Kansas? Moving can be a challenging ordeal to take on, especially if you are not familiar with the place you are moving to. Many questions may come up like: which moving company can I trust? Or maybe you are asking: where can I buy moving supplies? No matter what your questions may be, doing research is always your best option. This article will answer several questions that you might encounter when considering a move to or from Kansas, but not every question can be answered, so make sure that you do your research. Whether this article answers your specific question or not, it is a great place to get started with your move.
What Moving Company Should I Use And Trust?
There are so many different moving companies who you can trust to move your belongings. If you are making a long distance move, I would recommend a national company such as Allied Van Lines. If you are moving locally, then a local company would do the trick and might be cheaper in the end. If this is the case, do some research about local moving companies depending on where you are moving from.
Where Can I Buy Supplies For My Move?
When looking at where to buy supplies for moving, the sky is the limit. With more and more people moving all around the United States, a lot of stores now sell moving supplies. Stores like Home Depot and Target both sell moving boxes and packing tape along with packing peanuts and other various items. If you are looking for more specific moving boxes of sizes that might be harder to find, then check with a local storage company. Oftentimes storage companies also offer services that might be helpful in your move such as paper shredding, storage space, shipping, and van rental.
What Do I Need To Do Once I Have Moved?
Once you relocate to the state of Kansas, it is very important that you switch your driver’s license and your vehicle registration. Many states require you to do this within a few months of moving. In Kansas, you will need to bring some items with you to the DMV in order to get a new driver’s license. The first thing you will need with you is your present proof of your identity. This can be your other driver’s license. You will also have to pass a vision-screening test to pay any applicable fees. While you are at the DMV, it would be a good idea to take the time to register to vote and decide if you want to be an organ donor. With only one trip you can accomplish three vital things.
The next thing you want to make sure to do once you have moved is to transfer the title and registration for any vehicles you may have. You first have to take your car to a Kansas Highway Patrol inspection station to get your car inspected. Once your car has passed its inspection, you can take the paperwork given to you by the inspection station to a county treasurer’s office. When you are there you can also pick unique license plates that are just for your car. One of the many joys of driving a car in Kansas.
