Moving to a new state checklist


Are you moving to Minnesota or moving to another state?

We have recently partnered with Global Vanlines to provide both interstate and international moves! This means that in addition to moving local moves, we can also book larger and further moves!

When moving to a different state, there are many things you need to make sure you do.

We have some checklists and request that you backup your computer before the move!

We’ve curated a list of top tips to remember before, during and after your move!
