Moving from Florida to Connecticut

Moving from Florida to Connecticut

When moving from Florida to Connecticut timely planning is key. Getting acquainted with the Constitution State beforehand and outlining the details of your relocation will make the moving process easier. In this post, we will tackle a few commonly asked questions and offer practical information, including tips on shipping your vehicle from Florida to Connecticut.

What is it like to live in Connecticut?

Diverse Nature

Connecticut is a beautiful state that offers a wide range of sights, history, and activities. If you are a nature lover, you will find the beaches, parks, and mountains delightful. Hiking at the Bear Mountain in Salisbury, exploring the Ocean Beach, and enjoying some fresh lobsters are only a fraction of all the outdoor recreational activities that you can do. You will definitely need your car in order to dwell in the state’s natural jewels, so you might already want to consider bringing your vehicle to Connecticut.

Brilliant history

The state has a historical legacy as one of the original 13 colonies. Did you know that they call it the Constitution State because the US Constitution is based on the 1639 “Fundamental Orders of Connecticut”? Exploring local museums can teach you a lot about the historical “secrets” of the state.

Delectable cuisine

I mentioned lobsters earlier, but another Connecticut signature is the hamburger. Connecticut is its birthplace. Yes! You read it right. We wouldn’t be enjoying hamburgers today if Louis’ Lunch didn’t invent this recipe back in 1900 in New Haven. So, thank you for that, Connecticut!

How to plan my move from Florida to Connecticut?

While there’s no perfect recipe for an easy move, the more you plan – the easier the transition to your new home will be. So first things first, you need a comprehensive relocation plan that will guide you through the physical move and help keep everything in check.

  • Prepare a budget based on your savings and expected income.
  • Research moving and car shipping companies. Check customer reviews, compare quotes, and call companies with questions.
  • Arrange moving details with your movers and car shipping company.
  • Pack your belongings and prepare your car for shipping.
  • Double-check you have your most important documents in order, close any local bank accounts in case you won’t be using them, and change your mailing address.

Finally, book your plane ticket to Connecticut and enjoy the moving adventure!

What is the cheapest way to ship my car from Florida to Connecticut?

Car shipping prices depend on several factors such as the make and model of your vehicle, distance, and type of service you choose among others. But ultimately, it all boils down to supply and demand influencing truckers’ availability. If there is a higher demand to ship cars, then the prices will go up, as there will be fewer available truckers to transport them.

Thus, the cheapest way to ship a car, in your case, would be to avoid the back-to-school or end-of-year holiday season. Moreover, unless you are shipping an expensive or classic car, the more affordable option is to go with an open carrier.

Another money-saving tip is to plan in advance and be flexible with delivery timing. The sooner you will want your car to be delivered, the more you will pay. For example, if you are in a rush and request expedited shipping, you will have to pay the premium price.

What is the cost of living in Connecticut?

Living in Connecticut will be more expensive than in Florida, but definitely not as expensive as living in New York. The average living costs in Connecticut will depend on the size of your family as well as the exact city.

According to some estimates, a family of four will need to earn around $95,000 yearly, if they live in New Haven and $110,000 if they live in Fairfield county.

No worries though, the average salaries in Connecticut are also higher than the national average, which means that you should be able to afford living expenses and maintain a good living standard.

Is it worth moving from Florida to Connecticut?

Connecticut is a great place to call home, thanks to its high standard of living as well as rich history and beautiful landscape. However, moving may not be an easy process at first, as it implies change. But now that you know a bit more about Connecticut, you can weigh the benefits against the drawbacks and make the transition easier.

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.

Excellent Organization

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.
