Moving from Florida to New Jersey

Moving from Florida to New Jersey

Moving from Florida to New Jersey may be an exciting opportunity for a fresh start, but without a good plan, it can turn into a stressful affair.

In this short guide, I will cover a few questions to help you better prepare for your move to The Garden State. What are the pros and cons of moving to New Jersey? Is it expensive to move from Florida to New Jersey? How do I ship my car? How to prepare for my move? and What is a livable salary in New Jersey?

What are the pros and cons of moving to New Jersey?

New Jersey is a culturally rich state, with a long history. You can see the European and African-American cultural heritage reflected in the food, local dialects, and architectural sites. You can also experience it first-hand, at annual festivals like the Hoboken Italian Festival, the Greek Fest, and the African-American Heritage Parade among others.

In New Jersey, you will get to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of all four seasons. And if you ever want to take a break from the Jersey Shore beaches, New York City and Philadephia are just a short train or car ride away.

Moving to New Jersey has its drawbacks too. The Garden State is crowded with locals and tourists alike. This often leads to heavy traffic jams. Proximity to New York City can be nice, but if you are caught in traffic, then be ready to spend hours on the road.

Another disadvantage of living in New Jersey is the high cost of living, especially housing expenses. Also, the state has the highest property taxes in the whole country. This leads us to the next question.

What is a livable salary in New Jersey?

The answer to this question depends on the area you move in and your living standards. However, according to the Economic Policy Institute Family Budget Calculator, two adults living in the Jersey Metro Area, both need to make around $4000 – $5000 a month to cover the basic expenses such as food, housing, and healthcare. In Jacksonville, Florida, for example, this figure would be $1000-$2000 lower.

How can I ship my car from Florida to New Jersey?

If you are moving to New Jersey with a vehicle, you may naturally wonder how shipping your car from Florida to New Jersey works.

Although many people approach the auto transport process with confusion, it is a simple and safe endeavor. You need to find a reliable car shipping company that will offer you a current market price, transparency, and knowledge when it comes to vehicle relocation.

The cost of shipping your car will depend on the season, type of carrier and services you select, as well as your vehicle’s make and model, and exact pick-up and drop off locations of your car.

If you are shipping your vehicle in winter, then an enclosed carrier will protect it from weather conditions. But for summer shipping an open carrier would do just fine and may save you some extra money. Although, if you own a rare or luxury model, make sure you are aware of specifics of shipping an expensive car.

Is it expensive to move from Florida to New Jersey?

The most convenient way to move is to hire a professional moving company. Your moving costs will mostly depend on your current apartment or house size, moving season, distance, volume, and sometimes the weight of your furniture and other belongings. Additional moving services and products may also add to the cost of relocation.

For instance, an average price to move a 2-bedroom apartment from Orlando to Jersey City in April, without any additional packing services, on average will cost you $3,000 – $4,000. Don’t book your movers based on the lowest quote you receive. Check your potential moving company’s certifications and insurance. And don’t forget to read reviews to learn about other customers’ experiences.

How to prepare for moving from Florida to New Jersey?

Many Americans consider moving to be among the most stressful situations. There are lots of ways to reduce the stress of moving, but the most essential of all is having a good plan.

  • Research – learn about your new destination, moving and car shipping companies.
  • Budget your move – allocate a specific amount for each part of the moving process.
  • Request moving and car shipping quotes – ask questions and finalize bookings.
  • Make all the necessary arrangements – prepare important documents and sort through your belongings.
  • Book your own travel to New Jersey and enjoy the ride.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

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!

Truly positive experience

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.
