Colorado Springs is an amazing place to live so if you’ve decided to live there then congratulations. However, that doesn’t make the moving process any easier. Here then are some tips to help make your relocation to Colorado Springs a lot smoother and the transition process faster.

Use the Internet

The internet is an amazing tool that you can use to make your life a lot simpler. You can conduct searches online whether you plan on renting or purchasing a home. There are a lot of real estate websites where you can do MLS searches. You can even do virtual tours to really get the idea of where you’ll be moving to. No longer are the days when you would have to drive around in search of the ideal place to live as you can do a complete search online or at least narrow down the search.


Colorado Springs has an altitude of 6035 feet. Sure the air is purer but for some it’s hard to breathe. For this reason, I would suggest hiring a moving company to help you unpack. Altitude sickness is a problem for some people who aren’t used to this kind of altitude. Add to that the stress of moving and you may end up gasping for air. Drink lots of water and take it easy and you should be fine. In addition, keep an eye on your pets as this change in altitude could affect them as well. Altitude even has an affect on the cooking process. So, you will have to make water boil longer and keep things in the oven longer too.


Moving is not only stressful on you but your pets too. They may get discombobulated for a couple of days as they are in a new environment. It is your responsibility to watch them carefully and make sure they are kept inside or find a way to keep them from running away. They are most likely to do this as they are getting used to the new situation. Not to mention that the wild life in Colorado Springs such as foxes, mountain lions, large birds and bears would love to spot your pet alone. On the lighter side of things, Colorado Springs is not only a top rated place to live for humans but for pets as well. It was rated the number 1 Pet Friendly City in the country. You’ll find there are many parks and trails for your pet’s exercise needs and lots of vets as well for their health needs.

There Are Others Like You

A lot of people living in Colorado Springs are “newbies”. Whether it’s because they moved there because of the positive ratings or they are expatriates working for some of the large companies situated there or because they have been assigned at one of the military posts there, a lot of them aren’t natives. This is a great way to meet people and acquire friends. And yes, relocation to Colorado Springs is full of “friendlies”.
