Moving from Florida to New York?

Moving from Florida to New York?

Moving to one of the most popular states in the US must be exciting. In this short guide, I will give you answers to some important questions. The more prepared and informed you are, the easier it will be for you to adapt to the new life. How much will it cost to move from Florida to New York? How can I get to New York? What about shipping my car from Florida to New York? Is moving to New York a good idea after all?

How much does it cost to move from Florida to New York?

The cost to move will be based on the size of your house or apartment. There are no fixed rates set by moving companies. Just like with shipping a car, you need to request a few quotes and compare. The prices will vary based on the distance, the moving time, the volume, and, in some cases, the weight of the furniture being moved. Some additional moving services and products may increase the price as well.

For example, the average price for moving from a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, from Florida to New York City, can range somewhere between $3000 and $5000. It is important to choose a good moving company that offers professional services, not just to book the lowest quote received. Checking their certification and insurance is also very important. Check their customer reviews to learn more about how they treat their customers and how they perform their duties. A good idea is to call for an in-house estimate, which will give you a firm price quote on paper.

How to ship a car from Florida to New York?

Shipping a car is easier than moving your household. You can arrange the shipment in three easy steps – research, call, and book.

  1. Research car shipping companies – choose and check their licenses and customer reviews
  2. Call or request quotes online – ask questions about shipping a car from Florida to New York
  3. Decide and book with a company, pick the type of car shipping service as well

The delivery window from Florida to New York is about 3 to 5 days. Then you have to register your car with the DMV and get your New York state driver license within 30 days from your arrival.

How to plan my move from Florida to New York?

Before you actually move, you have to prepare, and there is no better way than having a plan. Planning is a key component when moving. Do not forget that most Americans categorize moving as one of the most stressful events in life.

  • Make a budget based on your savings and expected income
  • Prepare all the necessary documentation – new job, school, or healthcare
  • This is a good moment to also update your mailing address
  • Decide which items you would like to take with you and which to leave
  • Make all arrangements with your moving company
  • Book your plane ticket to New York and relax
What are the living costs in New York?

New York is one of the most expensive states. Rental and real estate purchase prices can be shocking, especially in New York City. For example, in Miami, the median home costs $329’900, whereas in New York City will be $680’500. The good news is that the annual average salary in New York is also higher than that in Florida. So, if you look in advance, you can still find a place that can suit your budget.

Initially, I recommend you check different cities, such as Albany or Saratoga Springs, which are cheaper than New York City. However, if your job is in the Big Apple, then you can opt for areas such as Brooklyn, Queens, or the Bronx. Sometimes, you can find good deals, and since the city has a good infrastructure, commuting to your workplace won’t be difficult.

Is moving from Florida to New York a good move?

Moving to another state has its pros and cons. On the one hand, you will leave a touristic coastal paradise, but on the other hand, you will move to a vibrant state which offers countless opportunities. As a New York lover, I may be a bit biased, but overall, in the long term, I think that your move is worth it.

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.
