Default school me on moving out of state?

Anyone familiar with the Mooresville/ Charlotte/ Lake Norman area of North Carolina? Aside from the obvious like moving all my crap down there what else do I have to worry about? Any hidden hassles? Do I have to re-title/license all my toys right away?

I know when I moved I was suppose to re-plate everything in 30 days. That was FL, I think every state is different. I didn't register mine for over 90 days.

I'd check out www.google.com

There is quite a bit of information there. ON ANYTHING YOU FUCKING WANT TO KNOW.

I lived in Charlotte around the Waxhaw area about 10 years ago for a total of 2 years. Unfortunately I was pretty young so I can't really help you out a lot other than to tell you that it is certainly a nice area with a lot of offer. I'm pretty sure Hacksaw is correct about the re-titling being a state to state thing. I've been in NM for almost 7 months and haven't retitled my Jeep yet, but I also haven't claimed residency here yet.

Move across the border to SC, no vehicle inspections and less taxes.

Doesn't NC require personally property taxes each year on your vehicles in addition to your registration fee? I never registered a vehicle in NC when I lived there but seem to remember my friends had to do that.

Just move already, then leave all your shit register to an address here. I got a buddy that lives here and all his shit is registered in Alaska, why IDK, but he is lazy as hell so it probably wont get registered here any time soon.

I'm familliar with the area. As we were leaving there I told my wife to take lots of pictures because we're never going back ever again. Really.

Like any metro area Charlotte is hit or miss for serious crime depending on the burg you live in. It's getting worse, my brother just moved out of Pineville up to Harrisburg because it was going down hill.

Keep your trailers registered here, they don't have the perminant plate there.

Be aware that places with personal property tax are more aggressive at seeing that you register your junk. In IN I went to grad school - it was cheaper than plates...

How is it north of charlotte? It soulds like my company may be looking at a building right down the road from hendricks and jgr in concord nc. I would like to have a nice little place in country with acerage like I do now but im afraid its going to be double the money or its going to be a shack.

Harrisburg, Concord, Kannapolis area is better than the south end. Given that a "nice" house is a subjective term; Lake Norman 'area' starts at about $300k for 2.3k sq ft. If you actually want to see Lake Norman plan on $700k and up. And either way you'll have neighbors within spittin' distance until you break into the $1 mil + zone. When my brother got his place in Harrisburg, a few acres & nice home were around $600k. Anything in the 150-200 range will have neighbors close enough to smell your farts. Empty land is kinda pricey there too. There's always exceptions, just do a lot of looking. Best bet is to check forclosures and do a good inspection.

Plan on spending half your life in traffic down there. I don't think there's a straight road in that state and anywhere near a town they're all packed with traffic.

Just moved up from NC (about 1 hour north of Charlotte.)

1) Jobs are scarce, it is almost as bad as MI for unemployment
2) cost of living is much more (housing is double...)
3) vehicle inspections, safety and smog, your vehicle may not be legal there if it is modded (light mods are ok)
4) I think you have to retitle within 30 days, they also tax vehicles like MI.
