Household Moving to New Orleans, Louisiana
As you likely know, New Orleans is a city located in the U.S. city of Louisiana. It’s borders are coterminous with Orleans Parish, meaning that New Orleans is, in effect, a consolidated city-county, as the term “parish” is used in Louisiana to describe the same political subdivision as a county in most other states. New Orleans is the largest city by population in Louisiana and is also the anchor of the larger New Orleans, Louisiana Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 1.1 million residents. The city proper is home to over 343,800 residents. New Orleans has long been a bustling trading port and port of entry for the United States, as it sits on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. After Hurricane Katrina hit the city in 2005, many people fled and many areas were damaged. Cleanup efforts are still ongoing, though the population is booming as a result and New Orleans is becoming an increasingly-popular household moving location.
Household moving to New Orleans is made easier by its size in that it should not be difficult finding a household moving company that can provide transportation services for you. While auto transporters prefer to run routes to and from major cities and metro areas to stick close to their customers, household movers tend to go more where they’re needed. The industry is more localized as a result, and nationwide moving companies can be more difficult to find if you’re shipping to or from smaller towns. New Orleans is a fairly large city, and has seen an influx in people moving there, particularly after cleanup efforts restored much of the city’s downtown business areas. As the economy booms, more people want in on the action.
There are likely to be areas of the city that will be inaccessible to auto transporters due to the size of their trucks – well, interstate movers, anyway, as interstate household moving trucks are often akin to the big 53-foot haulers that you see working for companies like Walmart. These trucks are massive, and often cannot squeeze into narrow entrances to neighborhoods in big cities. This is why they will often contract with smaller local movers with smaller trucks, so they can get directly to your door. If this service is required your household moving company will inform you prior to your goods being moved to a separate truck, so you can prepare. It should also be included in your total cost, but you’ll want to speak to your agent about that to learn more.
