If you’re considering living in Connecticut you’ll find that there are a number of good reasons for moving to that state. You’ve probably already realized the advantages of making the move. But it sometimes takes a long time to decide if relocating is the right thing to do, so it’s a good idea to take a while to think about the details before you decide if it’s right for you.
Each year, a lot of people move to new homes in the United States. Around 12 percent of the population, or about 35 million people, leave their current residence for a new domicile. A number of families and individuals from across the country relocate to Connecticut, and they often find that it can be an exciting adventure.
If you’re new to Connecticut, 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 Connecticut. 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 Connecticut, 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 Connecticut. 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.
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 Connecticut, 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 Connecticut.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 Connecticut.
Moving to Connecticut with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to Connecticut with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
Connecticut issues a permit to carry pistols and revolvers to both residents and non-residents, which allows both open and concealed carry by the permit-holder. By law, Connecticut is a May-Issue state, but court precedence has established that issuing authorities must grant permits on a Shall-Issue basis for the vast majority of applicants who meet the state’s statutory qualifications. State statutes specify that the issuing authority must determine the applicant is a “suitable person” before approving the application for a pistol permit, although no such definition exists in state law. However, the state’s courts have established that a “suitable person” is one who generally meets all of the statutory criteria to qualify for a state pistol permit. Additionally, unlike other May-Issue states, Connecticut law does not require the applicant to provide a “necessary and proper reason” (or in other words, show “good cause”) for needing a pistol permit.
You may find that the gun laws in Connecticut 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 Connecticut with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to Connecticut
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to Connecticut a little easier. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- If you like outdoor sports, Connecticut does have a lot to offer. You can bike from Southington to downtown New Haven. Many people lock up their bikes at Union Station and take the train into New York.
- Check with your new town’s website to see if there is a local Newcomer’s Club. These groups are a great way to meet new friends, and they often offer playgroups and other organized events that provide the kids a great way to make friends as well.
- If you’ve got pre-school age kids, start looking at the schools – even if you’re looking for the year ahead. Many schools offer social events for kids and parents – and often prospective parents are encouraged to attend.
- Some popular playgrounds in Fairfield County include Cherry Lawn in Darien and Mead Park in New Canaan. Greenwich’s Bruce Park and Stamford’s Twin Meadow Park are also very popular.
- Send out an email to all your friends – you never know who might have a cousin, sister or friend living in your new town.
It’s never exactly easy to make such a big decision as moving, particularly if you plan to move to another part of the country that’s far away. If you’re searching for the right Minnesota movers to help you out, you’ve come to the right place. Trico Long Distance Movers will make sure all of your belongings are safely transported to your new home, so feel free to contact us the moment you decide to relocate.
