3 Tips To Make Your Move as Easy, Simple, and Stress-Free
Physician relocation carries a number of unique challenges, and if you’re looking to make your move as hassle-free as possible, it’s important to be adequately prepared.
In this post, we’re going to look at three ways you can ease the burden of relocation, ensuring your move is as fluid, stress-free, and fast.
#1: Don’t Rush Into A Decision
Planning the big move is an exciting part of the process, and while it can be tempting to dive right in and decide where you want to move… live… and work, it’s vital that you don’t rush, and take your time to consider all of the possibilities.
For example, the area itself; you’ve found your dream home, the neighborhood seems friendly, but what about the transport? Are you able to drive to your new practice, or will you need to take public transport? If the latter – what does the time schedule look like?
The move itself; will there be any crossover time, between leaving your current home and moving into your new one? If so – where will you stay? Will this fit in with the start date at your new practice?
How about tax affairs? Especially important if you’re moving to a new state, you should always consult with a trained professional when you’re relocation, as tax laws differ greatly from state to state. Your entitlement to various pension, insurance, and healthcare schemes are also likely to change.
It may seem as though this level of thought – especially the first two points – is over the top…
But if you want to relocate without running into obstacles, it’s crucial you plan and prepare.
This will ensure the move goes off as smoothly as possible and will help you avoid any obstacles or pitfalls along the way.
#2: Give Yourself Time
There’s nothing worse than leaving things to the last minute, only to find problems that can’t be quickly resolved.
Being realistic about time-frames is also important to make your move a successful one. While it can – of course – be tempting to try and get the move going as soon as possible, the more time you leave yourself to plan and prepare, the better you’ll be able to get ready, and the better the eventual relocation will be.
Tip: A great way to ‘suss’ out the area you’re thinking of relocating to, and determining whether it’s suitable for you and your family, is to plan a short trip, and stay there for a few days.
This will give you a great idea of what life there is like, and it will allow you to look around, explore, and check out the surroundings.
#3: Use a Reputable Physician Relocation Service
Perhaps the best way to ensure your move goes as smooth as possible is to work with a Physician Relocation service.
Your most precious resource is time – and while you could dedicate weeks to interviewing realtors and searching for your new home, this is, in itself, a gamble more than anything else.
