Getting Ready to Move to Maine
Maine is rich in history and natural scenic beauty, known for the rugged splendor of its rocky coast and rolling mountains. The state shares a longer border with Canada than it does with the rest of the United States and is known as much for its most famous son—Stephen King—as it is for the quality of its lobsters and seafood. Whether you are planning to move to its biggest city, Portland, to the Down East area along the coast, or a more northern destination near Aroostook State Park, SmartMove is here to help you plan and execute the perfect move—especially when it comes to securing broadband Internet service, cable TV service, and/or phone service.
Moving to Maine requires careful planning and advance preparation, regardless of whether you’re moving to a home you’ve purchased or you are moving into a rental. SmartMove is ready to help you save on all your moving-related expenses, while also helping you transfer cable and Internet service or find great deals with reliable providers.

Support and Services for Moving to Maine
Using a Moving Company
These days, you have many options when it comes to moving to Maine. Begin your preparations by searching for moving companies in your current area that offer moving services to Maine. If you’re planning to hire movers though, make sure that you get at least three estimates for the complete cost of the move before you pick a company, so you can rest assured that you’ve gotten a terrific deal before you sign a moving contract. There are also some tried and true strategies you can use to make sure you’re getting the best price possible.
Choosing to Move Yourself
Of course, moving yourself is always an option, too. Besides saving money, moving yourself also gives you more control over the moving process, and there are likely companies in your current area that rent trailers, moving trucks, and shippable storage containers. All you’ll need to round up is the help of friends and family.
Whether you hire professionals or choose to make the move yourself, be sure to save all moving-related receipts for your taxes. You should also find out if your new employer offers any relocation reimbursement to help cover some of the costs you incur with your move to Maine.
