Livability: Moving: 11 lessons from 5 moves to 5 different states

East Coast. West Coast. Midwest. Big cities. Suburbs. Small towns.

During the 15+ years since graduating college and joining the workforce, our family has moved five times to five different states, encompassing nearly every region of the country and all kinds of living situations.

We’ve also done it all when it comes to how we moved: we’ve been professionally moved, had part of our moving expenses covered by our jobs, and we’ve done it completely on our own a few times. Truth be told, during our first move to New York we accidentally took out part of a building in the Bronx with our rental truck (thankfully, we’d opted for the insurance coverage).
