Mark’s Southern Adventure

“Alabama is a blend of history, charm, and hospitality!”

My name is Mark, I’m 40, and I moved to Birmingham, Alabama from Chicago two years ago. It was a significant change, but I’ve found a new home here. I hope my story inspires you to consider Alabama for your next move.

First, a big thanks to ReloAdvisor for their outstanding service. They provided multiple quotes quickly and answered all my questions. The moving companies they recommended were professional and made the process smooth. I highly recommend using ReloAdvisor.

I spent most of my life in the windy city, working in the finance sector. The stories about the warm climate and friendly people of Alabama intrigued me. After some research, I decided to take the plunge.

Moving Process

I chose Birmingham for its rich history and growing job market. Finding a job was straightforward, thanks to the city’s expanding industries. My new employer helped with the legalities and healthcare requirements for the move.

Housing in Birmingham is quite affordable. I found a beautiful home in a historic district. The next step was moving our belongings. ReloAdvisor connected us with reliable movers who handled everything from packing to unpacking. The move was seamless.

A Tip

Plan your move during the spring or fall to avoid the summer heat. Also, ensure your moving company provides comprehensive services, including insurance. My movers offered great insurance options, which gave me peace of mind.



Alabama is charming with its rich culture and history. From the civil rights landmarks to the beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, there’s always something to explore. I’m thrilled with my decision to move here and look forward to many more adventures.
