Thinking About the Pros and Cons of a Move

Learn More About National Moving Companies in Seattle Wa! screenshotTo start with I am single, but I have a girlfriend and it is fairly serious. I have a really good job at a research park here in North Carolina, where I work in a field related to Biotechnology. That is the company that I work for builds very specialized machinery and components needed for the fields of bio engineering and bio tech. I have been offered an even better position in California. I also have a lot of stuff and it would be complicated for me to move it without one of the nationwide moving companies doing most of the work for me. The usual stuff would be child’s play for one of those companies, but I have a lot of antiques that I inherited from my family.

My grandmother and her sister were both seriously involved in buying and selling antiques and they have left me a house full of really nice stuff. I could try to sell a lot of it, but I like it a lot and the truth is that selling it would probably cost me a good deal in tax liability. When I inherited the stuff it does not appear that the government understood how valuable it really is and since I was quite young I really did not know either. So selling it would probably result in me paying a good bit of money in taxes from whatever I made off of it. That of course is not something that makes a ton of sense, especially if you talk about selling all of it. I have thought about trying to give away some of the largest things, like an antique Steinway grand piano. It is a beautiful piano, but I do not play extremely well and I could donate it to some organization for a take break.
