If you’re new to Minnesota, there are many new sights and experiences in store for you. Numerous guidebooks and online sites supply an almost endless inventory of information about every conceivable benefit that the state offers.
Among your first decisions will be selecting the best places to live in Minnesota. Do you prefer life in the city, a small town or in the country? You can find a variety of options that will fit the kind of environment that suits you best. The next step is to choose several different locations that fit your preferences, and then look at the advantages that each provides. If you have friends or relatives you’d like to be near, that can help you narrow down the options. They can also probably help you make a good decision by providing advice and inside information.
Once you’ve considered the many advantages and opportunities the state offers, you’ll probably be asking yourself, should I move to Minnesota, to another state that’s also interesting, or should I stay in my current state? It all depends on your reasons for moving. Sometimes your circumstance can help to make your choices clear. If you’re relocating for a new job, for instance, that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, you must weigh the benefits that you’ll reap by making the move.
Economic decisions always play a role when it comes to making a move, so you’ll of course want to consider the cost of living in Minnesota. Taxes, fees, the price of real estate and many other factors determine how far your money will go in any geographic location. You can look at the cost of food, utilities and other day-to-day or year-to-year expenses and make your own calculations. Or, find an online cost-of-living calculator and let it do the work for you.
There’s a great deal of information that you’ll want to consider if you’d like to move to Minnesota, and that may take a bit or research on your part. The time you invest in finding the facts will be worthwhile, most likely. Should you decide to make the move you’ll feel more confident about your decision, and you’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect in your new home.
Registering a Car in Minnesota and Getting a Minnesota Driver’s License
It can be challenging to get around almost everywhere without your own source of transportation, so it’s a good idea to ensure that you know the rules of the road and any new regulations that you’ll be obliged to follow. When you’re moving to Minnesota, the DMV will likely be among the many stops you’ll want to make as soon as you begin to get settled. Start out by looking at the Minnesota.gov DMV website. It supplies a lot of the information you’ll need to know and can save you a lot of time.
You’re probably most interested in finding out the facts about transferring your car registration, such as how much it will cost and how soon you must make a transfer after becoming a resident of the state. Fortunately, you can find all of that information online.
Another top question for motorists taking up residence in the state is what do I have to do about my driver’s license? Again, you’ll find all of the facts that you need to know on the government site. In addition, you can learn about all of the rules associated with registering a car in Minnesota.
Moving to Minnesota with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to Minnesota with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
The county sheriff must either issue or deny a permit within 30 days of the application date.
New and renewal permits are valid for five years from the date of issuance. Emergency permits are valid for 30 days. Landlords may not restrict the lawful carry or possession of firearms by tenants or their guests. Private establishments can ban any firearms and must post a legal notice banning guns on their premises or personally notify patrons that guns are not allowed. Sheriff’s departments that wrongfully deny an applicant, as determined by the courts, are responsible for reimbursing legal fees incurred by the applicant.
Permits to carry come with the following restrictions: You must be at least 21 years of age and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, complete an application and you must not be prohibited from possessing a firearm under Minnesota Statute 624.714 (Criminal background & mental health history check).
You must not be listed in the criminal gang investigation system, you must be a resident of the county to which one is applying for a permit, if you reside in Minnesota. Non-residents may apply to any Minnesota county sheriff.
You must present evidence of training in the safe use of a pistol. Training must be completed within one year of an original or renewal application.
You may find that the gun laws in Minnesota are more lenient or more restrictive than the laws in the state that you are moving from. In either case, it’s a good idea to contact your local law enforcement agency to ensure that you’re getting the most up-to-date rules and regulations, whether you’re moving to Minnesota with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to Minnesota
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to Minnesota a little easier and choosing the right Colorado movers. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- Minnesotans have a tendency to speak their mind, while saying it in the nicest way possible. Some call it passive aggressive. Natives prefer “Minnesota nice.”
- Minnesota is full of Wisconsin-born residents, so most Minnesota dwellers fall into two categories: Minnesota Vikings or Green Bay Packers football fans.
- Minnesotans are known for their iconic accent, (think “Fargo”) which is similar to that of their Canadian neighbors up north.
- They’ve been deep frying food for years, from fruit (yes fruit) to candy bars and everything in between. Deep fried cheese curds are a local favorite.
- Once you embrace a Minnesota winter, you can enjoy all the fantastic things it has to offer, like sledding, ice fishing and warming up with a cup of hot chocolate.
It’s never exactly easy to make such an important decision as moving, especially if you plan to move to another part of the country that is far away. But you are probably taking the time to think about all of the pros and cons that you might encounter. Contact Trico Long Distance Movers for an estimate to see how much the move will cost you and if you’ve got any questions regarding your move. Our professional Colorado movers are ready to make your move a stress-free experience.
