  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.

    If you are planning to move to the Golden State, you are certainly not alone. Plenty of people move to California each year, as this is one of the most popular and well-known states in the United States. However, just because many people are doing it doesn’t mean that moving from Idaho to California will be any easier. Not only will you have to tackle the relocation-related tasks, such as finding some of the best long distance movers Boise has to offer, but you’ll also need to prepare for the new lifestyle that awaits. At Peasley Moving & Storage, we have decided to rely on our experience as well as plenty of research in order to bring to you a comprehensive moving guide. We will do our best to prepare you for the process that’s ahead.

    Deciding which part of California you want to move to

    Which part of California do you think would be the one for you?

    There are many misconceptions related to life in California. A big percentage of people associate Los Angeles and warm weather with a typical life in California. But there are many people who don’t realize that you don’t have to be met by 24-hour sunshine after deciding to move to the Golden State. In general, there are five climate regions in California:

    • South Coast
    • North Coast
    • Central Valley
    • California Desert
    • Sierra Nevada

    If work isn’t taking you to a particular region and you want to move to California from Idaho because you think a whole new world will open up, then you need to decide which climate would work best for you. Some people would thrive in a colder area such as San Francisco, while others will find San Diego to be just the right place for them. Only after you make this decision can you get in touch with the right Idaho movers for your upcoming relocation.

    Some relocation-related tasks to handle when moving from Idaho to California

    Relocation, whether local or long-distance, is an event that is always accompanied by a plethora of different tasks. Of course, which tasks you’ll have to deal with will depend on many things. It’s safe to say that every relocation is a completely unique event, yet there are some tasks that are a part of more than 90% of moving endeavors. Those tasks include:

    • Hiring the right moving company
    • Shopping for packing supplies
    • Transferring medical records
    • Packing your belongings
    • Notifying people that you are moving
    • Switching utilities to the new address

    We can bet that you had to deal with these tasks when moving to Idaho in the first place. If that’s the case, then it should be easier to deal with them this time around. Of course, there’s always a first for everything, so you shouldn’t be worried if you are entering the process with zero experience. Just make sure to plan your move and create a moving checklist, and we are sure you won’t have any problems with this part of the process.

    How much does it cost to live in California?

    Hopefully, you’ll be able to afford a nice life after moving from Idaho to California.

    The cost of living in California is a problematic area for many people. We are sure that the Golden State would have many more residents if the prices were more affordable. Unfortunately, California is one of the most expensive states to live in, with San Francisco and Los Angeles topping the charts of the most expensive cities in the USA. To give you an idea of how costly it is to live in California, you should know that a typical resident here might have to spend nearly half of his/her paycheck just to pay rent. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule.

    Every state has areas that are more expensive and those that are more affordable. So if the price will be the deciding factor in your decision-making process, we suggest you do your research. As much as you want to live in LA after moving from Idaho to California, you have to understand it might not be possible at times. The good news is that the Golden State will provide you with almost endless job opportunities. So after your residential movers from Boise drop you off at your new location, you can start saving up money. We are sure you’ll move to your favorite California city in the foreseeable future.

    What to do with your car after moving to California from Idaho?

    California is a beautiful state, so you’ll be able to make many road trips.

    Do you plan to drive your car after moving to the Golden State? Then you’ll have one very important task on your to-do list – registering your vehicle. You’ll need to report to the California DMV within 20 days of the day you enter the state. However, you can’t just go, register your car, and be done with it. In order to successfully complete the procedure, you’ll need to have the following documents with you:

    • Proof of insurance
    • Previous title and registration
    • An emissions certificate

    An employee will then perform an inspection and verify your documents, you’ll be asked to complete some forms and pay some fees, and voila – you’ll be issued California license plates and registration. With the full liberty to drive wherever you want, you’ll truly be able to start enjoying your new life in the Golden State.

    Will you be able to adjust after relocating from Idaho to California?

    It’s really hard to say, as that depends on what you are like as a person. Most people go through an adjustment period that might last for some months. Usually, things settle down and go back to normal after a few months have passed and people start enjoying their new lives. However, if you feel like you can’t get used to moving from Idaho to California, you can always hire good interstate movers and move back to your Idaho home. Nobody can force you to live somewhere you are not happy, although the chances for that are minimal.
