Moving to Wyoming: Save 55% on Moving Services
Wyoming Movers & Wyoming Moving Tips
Congratulations on deciding to move to Wyoming! Although Wyoming has long been thought of as a tourist state rather than a great place to live, I’m excited to see that you’ve chosen the “Equality State” as your new home, especially because there are some great ways to save in Wyoming, both on your moving expenses and on your everyday life. I can’t wait to help you find the right Wyoming movers and to give you the scoop on getting settled in Wyoming. From what I’ve heard, it’s bound to be an exciting adventure!
Finding the Right Wyoming Movers
There are several things to consider when choosing Wyoming movers, and chances are that price is among the most important. Make sure to interview at least three different moving companies to get a feel for what is a reasonable price. Inquire about prices for extra services including packing, shuttle service and supplemental insurance. You should also ask about the availability of all moving companies that you interview to make sure that they can assist when it’s convenient for you. Another important thing to consider is the impression that you get from your movers as it applies to their level of responsibility. Don’t hesitate to ask for referrals and to make a decision (at least partly) based on your gut feeling. There are enough Wyoming movers to choose from that you shouldn’t settle on a moving company that you don’t feel completely comfortable with.
Obtaining a Wyoming Driver’s License
Most states require that you transfer your driver’s license within one or two months which places a certain stress on people who are already adjusting to a new environment. Wyoming, however, requires that new residents convert to a Wyoming driver’s license any time within the first year of residency. This flexibility will allow you to settle in before rushing to the DMV. You will be required to surrender your out-of-state license and to provide one form of identification and a valid Social Security card upon request of a Wyoming license. Wyoming driver’s licenses are valid for 4 years. Teenagers aged 15 and older can apply for a learner’s permit in Wyoming.
Wyoming Tax Regulations
Wyoming has one of the most favorable tax policies of any state in the nation. As one of only seven states that have no formal income tax, Wyoming paves the way for straightforward budgeting and financial planning. In addition, Wyoming’s sales tax is a modest 4%. If you’re moving to Wyoming you can look forward to these tax breaks and plan your family budget accordingly.
Wyoming may not be the most popular state to live in but it offers unquestionable advantages both financially and geographically. With a location in the heart of the country and hundreds of gorgeous national parks within its borders, you’ll enjoy feeling simultaneously close to nature and (relatively) close to your friends and family. Good luck with your move to Wyoming!
