Moving from Boston to Florida

Moving from Boston to Florida

Sometimes relocating from one state to another does not take much getting used to. However, in certain cases, the change in place can be somewhat overwhelming. It depends on several factors, such as weather, culture, and a few others.

Here we have a perfect illustration for that. If you consider moving from Boston to Miami, for example, be prepared to face some changes. For the snowbirds going south, this will not come as a surprise. Then again, even if you are going for a permanent move to Florida, you have probably started your research by now. Because of that, we have something different for you today.

Together we are going to look at some lesser-known things about both places. Instead of comparing all the obvious factors, we will have a bit of fun. After all, it always helps to know a special thing or two about any place.

The overlooked differences between Boston and Florida

We all know that Boston has gained quite the fame with its college and university culture. Yet many people don’t realize just how deep that goes. It gives a competitive edge to pretty much everything there. From the academy to the workplace, many people feel obligated to blast at full speed all the time. The medical and IT fields have it the roughest in that regard.

While you can see a bit of that in Florida, it’s just not the same. And many people actually prefer that. The laidback feel of places like Miami offers a good way to take it easy for a while. In fact, it’s not rare for Boston IT graduates to become digital nomads, choosing the Sunshine State as their residence.

Another less obvious thing is traffic. Few people would think that Boston offers a good driving environment. Traffic congestion continues to be a problem there with long-lasting rush hours. To battle that Florida has taken a different approach. Do you want to avoid getting stuck? You can pay to use the fast lane.

The Sunshine State also has its oddities – most notably the general behavior of drivers. Many consider them to be fairly undisciplined and often unpredictable.

Aside from that, other notable differences also exist. Here are a few:

  • Population trends: Though many like to joke about life in Florida, its population continues to increase at a good pace, unlike Massachusetts. On the other hand, both Boston and Miami have fairly steady populations over time.
  • Tourism: People don’t usually think of the rate of tourism as something important. However, it can be bothersome for many. Being the cruise capital of the world, Miami often sees more tourists than Boston. Even when you look at the whole of Florida, tourism is much more prominent than in Massachusetts.
  • Commuting: A point for Boston goes to commuting. You can easily get by without a car. Or you can at least not use it all the time. On the other hand, a vehicle for Florida is pretty much a necessity. Miami has also been known for terrible commute times.

Those are some of the factors that people don’t always consider when switching locations. With that said, if you are decided on moving to Florida, you should know a bit more about the process!

A few tips on moving from Boston to Florida

shipping a car

Like we have already pointed out, having a vehicle there is a must. But driving over a thousand miles from Boston to Miami or Orlando is not a pleasant experience. Fortunately, you don’t have to. You can take a look into the process of shipping a car from Boston to Florida. That can save you a lot of headaches, plus it will make your moving less stressful overall.

Another important thing to talk about is the weather. You have probably read all about it, but things are different when you are moving. Don’t underestimate how hot Florida gets. Since physical exertion during relocations is expected, you should be prepared with all the health precautions.

Also, make sure to inform yourself about the various critters and animal life there. Though you don’t need to stress about them, you are likely to encounter bugs on a regular basis.

Final notes on relocating to Florida

The great thing about the Sunshine State is that everyone can fit there. Even though it’s famous for its many retiree communities, young people are also welcome. Orlando, for instance, is known to be a great city for young professionals. Many places around it offer good salaries for college graduates.

Another thing that we should point out is Florida’s nature. Yes, it may be flat through and through, but it offers more than endless beaches. In fact, the government there has been trying to popularize other great locations. With the recent focus on healthy lifestyles, the variety in outdoor activities has become even more of a priority.

By now, you should have a good idea of what to expect of your moving experience. We from Corsia Logistics wish you a smooth transition through it. Don’t forget that we are always here to give you a hand with your auto transport needs!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
